"I LOVE LOVE LOVE every single little thing about Longing For Love!!! It was simply PERFECT!! I think that it is definitely my favorite of the series so far!! I love Blaine and Tiffany and I love how Marie Force wrote their relationship with such a mixture of love and laughter. I was sucked in immediately and I never wanted to leave!! Blaine *sigh* I never wanted Longing For Love to end and I found myself trying to read slower to prolong the story. I wasn't ready to leave Gansett Island!! Just an awesome book filled with romance, love, laughter, tears, conflict, a little angst, HOT SEX, more laughter and more tears everything that I have come to expect and love from Marie Force and this series."―BEST OF THE BEST rating, Belle's Book Bag

What a delightful series! I am so glad I decided to read the McCarthy’s of Gansett Island books. I am enjoying it tremendously and finding it quite addicting. Waiting For Love is my favorite, next to Maid For Love, which is the first book in the series. However, just because these are my favorites, they only nudge out the rest by a very small margin!
This is Adam McCarthy’s love story, the last of the siblings to fall in love. When I found out that Abby Callahan was the heroine, I was not sure I would enjoy this book very much. It’s not that I disliked Abby from the previous books, but I thought she had already found her happy ending with Cal Maitland, since she left the island to be with him.
I was so wrong! Adam and Abby are perfect for each other. Abby’s character has definitely received the short end of the stick in the romance department to say the least. First, she suffers her failed long-term relationship with Grant McCarthy and then she fails with Cal, and both for the same reason, lack of attention from the man she loves. This has her wondering if she will ever find someone who will put her first in his life, instead of second and even third.
Abby decides it is time for some changes. She has been a good girl all her life, and it has not gotten her what her heart desires. Abby is determined to drink too much, have meaningless sex and swear, all behaviors, kind-hearted and sweet Abby has never engaged in before.
Adam McCarthy has had the rug pulled out from under him. His long-time girlfriend has managed to push him out of the company he founded. Not only is his heart bruised, but so is his pride. When he overhears Abby talking to a captive audience on the noon ferry to Gansett Island, he is determined to rescue her from herself. If she is so determined to set out on this destructive path, he will just have to be her willing partner in crime. After all, some mindless indulgences may be what he needs as well.
After days of fun and mischief from skinny dipping in the moonlight to getting a tattoo with Abby, Adam begins to see she is the right woman for him in every way. However, Abby is set on spending the rest of her life on Gansett Island. He has a company to get back on the mainland. Could he give up his life in the city for the woman he has fallen in love with?
I do want to mention the narration by Holly Fielding. I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Fielding’s performance, and she does a great job giving this multitude of characters distinctive voices. She reads with emotion and brings the characters to life. However, there does seem to be some background noise in some of the recordings. Not enough to distract, but enough that I noticed it.
I thoroughly enjoyed Waiting for Love and can’t wait to read the next book in this heart-warming series. I love getting a chance to see the other characters growing in their relationships. Since Ms. Force writes “happily for now” stories, there are wonderful opportunities to extend the previous characters’ love stories. This is a series about a town along with a lot of great characters. I highly recommend these books. I am confident you will fall in love with Gansett Island and its wonderful residents, as much as I have. Happy reading!
There was so much to love about this book... But by far, my favourite quote was Big Mac "just because there's snow on the roof doesn't mean the fires out son". I swear I love that man a little more with each new installment.
If you are new to the series, I definitely recommend starting at the beginning with Maid for Love. This is an ever growing story made stronger if you read each book. Fortunate, for you, the books are all great, and Adam will be waiting for you!
Waiting for Love is Adam's story and we start with his unexpected return to the island after he has lost his company and his three brothers almost died the week before in a boating accident. On the ferry ride home he meets up with Abby, his brother Grant's former girlfriend, and they change each others lives! First with tattoos and skinny dipping, and later with love. Will it be ever-lasting love? Adam decides to fight for his company and returns to New York. Abby makes a success of her newly opened toy store. Will they find success apart or together? Read Waiting for Love to find out! If you haven't read the whole series, be sure to start with book 1 - Maid for Love!
