I have read quite a few of Force's books. The first couple in a series are likable. I can connect with the characters. Then, it just gets repetitive. Too much sex and in her quest to write new sex positions, she just gets repulsive.

This box has 3 great love stories. The first is Mac and maddie' s story in maid for love. Their story was my hook must say. The way Mac went after maddie and didn't go was amazing. He truly showed how much maddie meant to him. Even when maddie was being unreasonable. Mac is a keeper that hunk of a man.

The next story is Janey and Joe's story. Joe has been in love with Janey since high school but Janey' s been in love with someone else which she was to marry after 13 years of being together. David was a resident ( MD) in Boston. However, he got caught in bed with another woman when Janey went to surprise him on their 13th anniversary. She calls Joe when her car breaks down in the highway. Joe comes running because of his secret love for her. Janey hurt by David's betrayal hooks up with Joe and off they go. Yelling matches, jealousy, begging, and tears, lots of it gets into the mix.

The last story is Luke and Sydney. Luke has also, been in love with Sydney since they were kids'. They dated and though it was not said in the book it seems they lost their virginity to each other. However, Sydney's parents did not approve Luke. Eventually, syd' s parents for what they wanted and she married someone else and has a life with him until tragedy strikes, when a drunk driver kills her husband and 2 kids. Now syd is back in the island trying to move forward in life and whose their watching her through the shrubs but Luke. Together they rekindled their love which apparently never went away. Trust and fear of history repeating itself is the main theme of this story.

I gave it a 5 star because it was awesome. Like I said Mac and maddie' s story hooked me and the rest just followed. You get to see how everyone's lives continue as the story develops and adds more.

This boxed set got me started reading Marie Force's books. I really enjoy this author. I went on to read the rest of the McCarthys of Gansett Island books as well. This series reminds me of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. It is easy to become invested in the people, places and community these books bring to life.

I've read all the books in the McCarthys of Gansett Island series and loved them, so as I've been browsing to see what to give my sister for the holidays -- and she MUST have the new Paperwhite -- this collection of the first three books, looks like the perfect thing to send along with the new Kindle. If you think it's too early to do your holiday shopping, think again!

The first two books in the series are great. Terrific stories with characters that you will fall in love with. The McCarthy clan are larger-than-life characters that you want to spend time with and the island beckons you to come and stay awhile. I intended to buy the entire series based on these two books. Then I started book three. I am so tired of stories of men who fall in love in high school (or earlier) and never get over that person. They are so unrealistic. Yes, you can carry a bit of that 'first love' with you sometimes but never to marry or date for SIXTEEN years!?! Please...let's get real here. This was a theme of the second book and now repeated in the third book. Is this going to be carried throughout the series? And Luke and Syd are just not interesting or compelling like the characters in the first two books. Adding even more sex to this book didn't add more interest to the story, it just made it more boring. I struggled through 60% of the story and finally just gave up. I'd like to think the rest of the series is as wonderful as the first two books, but probably won't read any more of them to find out.

Book One: 4 stars
Book Two: 4 stars
Book Three: 1 star

For those interested:
No bad language
LOTS of descriptive sex

I started off liking the first book quite well. I enjoy stand alone books in series form. Its interesting to begin knowing all the various people in a town and how they interact. However, into the second book and by the third book I just felt there was way to much sexual content. The story lines began to take a back seat to all the sex which became the main focus instead of the characters daily lives which could have carried the theme of the books on their own. Not the H/h jumping into bed and every other place they could think of to have sex every couple of chapters. I found myself skipping through most of the pages because of this. I believe the majority of readers like me can picture the sex scenes without all the vivid details. For this reason I will only rate this book at 2 stars. Sorry, I would like to give it a five for content but can't.
