Review

Ready for Love is a beautiful and inspiring love story. I was riveted to the pages of Ready for Love not only for this magical romance but for the outstanding secondary plot lines as well. This may be my first McCarthys of Gansett Island book but it will not be my last! I am in love with these people and the tiny island they live on. —

This is the third book of the series: McCarthy's of Gansett Island by this wonderful author. I have read all her books and they all seem to captivate you with their stories and characters. This book was no exception. You don't need to read all the books in the series, they could stand on their own, but it helps with the history of some of the characters present. This is the story of Syd and Luke, who were once very much in love when they were teenagers. Syd would come back every summer and her relationship with Luke would continue, until one summer, she stopped coming and broke his heart. Syd moved on, got married, had a family of her own. She hasn't been back to the island until a terrible tragedy happens in her life and she loses her family. Luke never seemed to forget her and knowing she was back on the island, stirred lots of different emotions: he wanted to comfort her, be with her, but at the same time, he wanted answers, confront her, he was definitely torn.

This is a story about second chances, helping a person you love overcome tragedy, finding love again, a new outlook in life and friendships. This book was well written and emotionally captivating. It had humor, tons of romance, drama, sadness and joy. Reading this book will warm your heart; perfect summer reading! I can't wait to read Grant's book. Thank you Ms. Force for writing such wonderful stories and keeping your fans entertained!

Ready for Love is the third book in the McCarthy's of Gansett Island series. This one will require a kleenex to complete! The heroine has had a horrible tragedy occur in her life and the hero in the book helps her through this difficult time. Several other secondary characters are introduced and Grant McCarthy, who appears to be the hero in book four gets some time in this book. Ms. Force, as usual, draws you in with strong character development as always. Romance abounds in this book that is a perfect summer read. If you haven't read Marie Force or this series I advise you to pick up one of her books and get hooked as I have. I can't wait for book four of the series!

I am really loving this series, although if I'm being honest...I like the first two books better than this one. Don't get me wrong.... this was a very good book, but there was just something about this book that I found a little lacking. I loved Luke and had no problem with him at all but... Sydney is a whole other thing.

Yes, she went through a very tragic time in her life. And yes, I know it takes time to get over something like that. Sometimes people don't ever get past something like that, so maybe I should at least give her credit for trying to move on, but IMO- she needs to make sure she's ready to do that, before she starts something she's not willing or able to finish...

Maybe it was the wishy washy way that Sydney acted towards Luke that has me so out of sorts. One minute she was acting fine and she thought that Luke walked on water,but then the next minute she was doubting his every move. She said she was ready to move on and the next thing you know, she turns around and questions everything she does. And if she truly is ready to move on, why does she continue to keep comparing the life she has now, to the one that was taken away?

I felt like screaming at her to either get it together, or get the heck out of Luke's life for good. Luke loves her so much and he doesn't deserve to be hurt again, like she hurt him the first time around.

And her parents...boy, don't even get me started on them. I think it was very wrong of them to act the way they did 17 years ago. Judging someone only based on their wealth or education is so wrong on many levels. And it bothered me even more, that Sydney went along with it.

Yes I know she was only 19 years old at the time, but a lot of young people make major decisions on their own at that age.

When I read what happened to Sydney Donovan's family at the end of Fool for Love, I could imagine how we were going to get a story out of something so tragic. Well, we got one and it was good!

A little more than a year ago, Sydney Donovan's life was turned upside down when a drunk driver hit her car killing her 2 kids and her husband. She was not only physically broken, but psychologically as well.

Little did Sydney know that Luke Harris, her old high school summer sweetheart, watched her as she dealt with her tragedy. So he's shocked when he's immediately found out the following summer when Sydney comes back to Gansett Island. Luke has never stopped loving Sydney. She may have broken his heart when she never came back to the island, but he never found anyone bump Sydney from that place in his heart.

Finding her a little more like her old self (one who apologized for how she treated him at nineteen), they strike a deal on a friendship. However, that deal only lasts so long when the spark they had when they were teenagers rears it's head to show that it's alive and wanting to explore what might have been. However, they have a few snags they need to deal with while trying to figure out just what they have.

Her parents are still very prejudice against Luke, thinking he is somehow beneath Sydney. Luke, still a little gun shy and wondering if Sydney's going to bolt at the first opportunity, isn't all that forthcoming with what his life is like in Gansett Island (i.e., part owner in the marina and a boat restorer). And then we have Sydney, who is waiting for the other shoe to drop, convinced she has bad karma and that is why her family had been taken away.
