Fool for Love (The McCarthys of Gansett Island #2)
What happens when you get a handsome ferry boat captain who finally gets his chance with his lady love?
What happens when your life completely shifts and the path that you were set on taking is no longer there?
Fool for Love by Marie Force continues on with the McCarthy siblings. This book tells the story of Janey McCarthy and Joe Cantrell. Janey is the youngest of the McCarthy siblings and the only girl in the brood. Joe is Mac McCarthy's best friend and the owner and ...more
1. Very likable characters- Force's heroes always seem perfect to me and I absolutely loved Joe. Joe is Janey's older brother's best friend and he has been in love with Janey since she was 13 or maybe earlier. He has genui...more
After Mac and Maddie, this is now Janey's and Joe's story.
Janey, Mac's sisters, has been in love with David as long as she can remember and she sacrificed a lot for the relationship. When she wants to surprise him on their anniversary and finds him in bed with another woman, Janey feels lost and hurt but already starts realizing that maybe this hasn't been the right relationship and the right man for her for some years. On the way back to the island, her car breaks do ...more
I just finished this story on the way home from work. Love a story of unrequited love, and this didn't disappoint!. Don't forget about the steamy scenes that will singe your eyebrows. The narrator was quiet and lent a sensual, as well as melancholy feel to the story. That sounds a little confusing, so how about this: The narrator was wonderful!
Joe has been in love with Janey for as long as he can remember but not ever acting on his feeling since she has a ...more
There are just as many clichés in Fool for Love as there are books called Fool for Love in the Goodreads Database. I imagine I could find the same basic plot line in more than one of them but it doesn't matter all that much.
It's derivative but it's still entertaining.
Janey McCarthy is the youngest and the only girl in a family of 5 children. She is traumatized when she plans a surprise visit to her fiancee in Boston where He is doing His MD Internship (a man she has been with for over 13 years)only to discover Him in bed with another women. He doesn't see her (and after standing there watching them for what seems like forever) she runs out of their apartment in total shock to get back to her home on ...more
I don't know why I never read this book when I loved book one but I'm glad I got around to it! I loved how utterly devoted Joe was to Janey and gave her nothing but unconditional love. I also liked the flip on the typical brother's best-friend trope where this time it's the guy who's in love with the little sister.
One thing I liked about it was that it was told a lot from the perspective of the hero. Joe Cantrell has been in love with Janey McCarthy forever. But she has been with her high school sweetheart, David forever. The two of them have been together for 13 years and planning a huge wedding for the following year.
Joe knows that he has no chance with Janey and his love is ...more
There was a lack of story here. Jainey dumped her boyfriend after seeing him in bed with another woman, and ends up in bed with her brothers best friend who has carried a torch for her for years. He now has to wait for her to come round to the idea. And she really enjoys being with him, he encourages her to go to Vet school - and that's when she realises she loves him, and breaks up with him to save him from a broken heart. Sound logic righ ...more
I enjoyed the characters in book 1 better. I know, it seems I'm the only one who thinks this way according to the rating but I'm sure about that and it has nothing to do to have read them together. The main characters in book one had more char ...more
Joe is a ferry captain, and owns the boat service that takes everyone out to the island where the novel is set. So he’s what I think of as grounded affluent – there’s money there, but not so much that he’s buy-a-girl-a-designer-wardrobe fancy. He’s a family friend and has been in love with Janey forev ...more

This book is worth the read if you're interested in a relaxed unrequited love-story without a lot of suspense and anxiety than this is a go to for you.
I believe I gave book one in this series a 3/5 as well but in my opinion this story is better. So maybe this book is a 3.5/5.

I orginally read this in 2011 on kindle and rated 3 stars but after the audio I'm increasing it to 4.5 stars.
The narrator is still good, but she sliped up a lot in this. They were all small slips ups, but annoying. Does nobody proof listen to these things? There is also a lot of background noise. Annoying, but didn't ruin it.
Now about the book...I remember I was previously rankled by Janey, because she made poor Joe jump through hoops, however, ha ...more
Another great one Marie, please keep them coming!! And Im so looking forward to the other MacCarthy brothers to have their own stories....maybe one will even be matched up w ...more

Edisyon Adı :Aşka Düşünce
Yazar : Marie Force
Goodreads Puanı : 5.4/28
Marie Force ile ilk tanışmam serinin ilk kitabını okumadım ve okumadığıma çok pişman oldum. Yazar karakterleri özellikle erkek karakterleri rüya gibi yazıyor. Gerçek olamayacak kadar muhteşem karakterler.
Tam anlamı ile çok güzel bir tatil kitabı. Elinize alacaksınız,güneş kreminizi sürdükten sonra şezlonga kurulup okumaya başlayacaksınız.
Güneş kreminizi fazlaca sürmenizi tavsiye ederim zira k ...more
Fool for Love is the second book in the MaCarthys of Gansett Island series and what a delightful series it is. Until Maid for Love, I had not read any books by Marie Force, but now after reading/listening to two, I’m sold. Light contemporary romance is not my first choice of read, but I loved Fool for Love.
Joe Cantrell has been in love with Janey McCarthy since high school, but since Janey has been with David Lawrence for thirteen years, he knows he doesn’t have a chance. Then he ...more
I'm still trying to find my pace into this series, that's a bit slow for me right now, but as I like this author, I'll go on with the next one!
The change of heart from the heroine, though possible, yet seemed too quick. However I liked how she managed to better understand and rationalize her previous relation ...more
First of all, I had issues with the story. It does not matter how bad or non-existing a relationship is by the time you end it, if you were with someone for 13 years it certainly takes more than 2 weeks to get over it. I know that throughout the b ...more
