THE KISS THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING
Paul Martinez and his brother Alex have been run ragged by the demands of running the family landscaping business and caring for their mother who is battling dementia. They have hired nurse Hope Russell who brings relief to caring for their mother but brings a new problem for Paul - lusting after one of his employees. Hope and her young son need to restart their lives and Gansett Island is perfect for them. While she admires the way Paul cares for his mother and her son, she fights falling for him. She can’t risk losing her job and new home by falling for her boss. He’s tortured by falling for one of his employees, something he knows his late father wouldn’t approve of. Brother Alex has found his happy ever after (book 10) and the wedding is approaching but something is bothering Jenny, his future wife.
In this book we get to catch up on all our favorites from the series and see new relationships starting to form and hint of new arrivals. All emotions are in this book. It’s a fun, warm, sexy, romantic book. The healing power of the island, as Gansett fans refer to it, is in full force. Marie did a good job walking us thru the disease of Dementia. One of my favorite lines is when Hope explains the patient’s behavior as that “they don’t mean to be insulting or demeaning, or nasty. That’s it’s the disease talking not the perfectly nice people they’d been before dementia struck.” As always, Marie seamlessly weaves multiple story lines throughout the book. She writes with humor (the girl’s epic prank on the guys). Writes feel good stories with HEA. She writes strong, committed people who have strong morals and values. One of my favorite things about this series is that the women don’t do drama. They really care and support one another. The Island is filling up with youngsters so Marie is sure to have plenty of islanders to write about for decades.
The main focus of this book is on Paul and Hope. Paul and his brother Alex have done all they can to help their mother with her dementia. They have rearranged their entire lives as well as the family business to make it so she can stay at home, leaving little time for anything else. The greatest thing they have found is Hope and her son Ethan.
Hope is looking for a change in her life and accepts the position of being a caretaker for Paul's mother. She is willing to relocate with her son to Gansett Island to give her family the change they need. She has been destroyed in the past by counting on others, so she does everything possible to make sure that doesn't happen again. But will she be willing to put aside her fears to find happiness?
I cannot wait for more from this series. The characters from this series resonate in your heart and never let go! I felt so many emotions as I read each trial and tribulation they experienced. I laughed as well as cried often and I fell more in love with this community. Marie Force is a brilliant author with amazing talents!
Hope came to Gansette Island as a nurse and caretaker to Marion Martinez, Alex and Paul's mother, as she copes with progressing dementia. While Paul tries to keep her arm's length, fearful of disappointing his father by having relationship with an employee, both he and Hope soon find their attraction is too strong to avoid.
We get to be there for Alex and Jenny as they prepare for their upcoming nuptials, all the while Jenny worried she will again face devastation rather than elation in the end. They are sweet together. I loved how everyone was there for them, supported them, and loved them.
Erin and Slim have a chance encounter and their chemistry is one for books, hmm maybe. Then again, loving Uncle Kevin.
Hope and Paul, as well as sweet Ethan, have a great story and HEA. Loved it!
