Since my reading addiction started and I continually discovered new authors and their books, I have found my favorites that I wait anxiously to be released and The McCarthy's of Gansett Island series is one of them. So I have to admit that I did a little happy dance when Longing For Love was finally released!! LOL :)

I continue to be drawn into each of these books through the lovable characters and the wonderful little island they reside. I've never wanted to live in a fictional place or surround...more

I adore every book in this sweet & sexy series. This one was one of the best mainly due to super yummy Blaine. I will say, there are a lot of characters to keep track of, but it's worth it.

Listened to on audio, narrated by Holly Fielding.

4.5 stars for the audio. I'd not encountered Holly Fielding before and so I was a little unsure to begin with, just because it takes a little while to become used to a different voice and style, but after the first 10 minutes I totally forgot about her. That, in my opinion, is the sign of a really good narrator. They should disappear into the background whilst at the same time enhancing the book. I am really pleased to say this definitely happened...more

I'm one of those people who prefer reading stand alone books or short series (no more than four books) because I get tired of waiting for the next book or I forget characters or what's happened. But for some reason, the McCarthys of Gansett Island trapped me from book 1 and I have waited for each new book and read them all.

Marie keeps writing about previous characters (which are some of my favorites from Gansett) and I love to keep knowing more about them. The only bad thing about it is th...more

4.5 stars. I freaking loved this bk. I think it’s one of her best and you definitely don’t want to miss this one. WOW that Blaine!!! Walking sex on stick. MF got a bit racier with this story, and I was lovin’ it!!! With Tiffany opening her Naughty and Nice store and Blaine, the local police chief, being all alpha male and dominant you can imagine how things got in her bedroom, his bedroom, her store, and….. ;-). I’m sure some will criticize that Blaine and Tiffany didn’t get as much spotlight as...more

4.5 Stars!

After accidentally erasing my long review I am just too lazy to re-write it. So I'm going to get right to it, I loved it! Blaine & Tiffany burn up the sheets and then some. Definitely IMO much more erotic but hot for the better. That Blaine is one freaky man and Tiffany (along with me) loves it. Love sneaks up on them while they are respectively are trying to not let their past relationships factor in.

The various sideline stories continue but I'm getting used to it, although I wis...more

I have visited Gansett Island many times, and generally enjoyed my stay.

In this installment the main characters in the book are Tiffany and Blaine. Tiffany is struggling to keep her head above water. She supported her husband through law school, working two jobs. Now that they moved back to the island and have young daughter he has decided he wanted a divorced and moved out of the home, taking all the furniture with him. Tiffany runs a daycare and a dance studio during the off season, but at th...more

2.5 stars

I was on the fence for the first couple of chapters, but I kept with it and it got better. I guess the author was trying to inject some variety into the personalities and styles of her male love interests, but Blaine never really clicked with me. To be honest, I never liked Tiffany much either - though she's softened quite a bit since her introduction in the first book. I was still routing for them, though not super emotionally invested. I actually skimmed through a lot.

Fans of the ser...more

You don't want to miss out on Tiffany and Blaine's story, along with updates on all the other characters we've come to love! Marie Force keeps the romance hot (well even hotter!!), the stories realistic, and the series fresh and addictive. Can't wait for the next trip to Gansett Island.

Full review to follow.
Straight Shootin' Book Reviews
I loved this one as much as the others. I dreaded finishing it but I knew another one was coming soon!. I'm pretty sure that Marie Force is quickly becoming one of my very favorite authors.
Joy
This has to be my favorite book in the series so far.

Tiffany totally rocks! I love her independence and strength, and of course the Gansett-unconventional toy store she opened, and I'm not talking about children's toys. Her and Blaine's story started from Grant and Stephanie's story when they met. It's already been a year and since Tiffany is still technically married to her douchebag husband Jim, Tiffany and Blaine are limited to eye-f*cking only.

I love the sexual tension between them and Blain...more
Kami
Marie Force is very good at having several stories going at once in the background. This maybe about Tiffany & Blaine but pay attention to all the coupling going on. Theses back stories will become there own in the next books.

Book #7 focuses on Blaine & Tiffany. Blaine is the sexy chief of police & Tiffany is Maddie's sister who runs a daycare & teaches dance classes. Blaine has been smitten with Tiffany since there brief encounter in the hospital after the marina accident. Tiffa...more

4.5 out of 5. This seventh book in another fine Marie Force series continued to keep me glued to the stories of this island population, all friends of relatives of the Gansett Island McCarthy family. Now the sister-in-law of Mac McCarthy, Tiffany Stirgil, a hard working business woman and caring mother has been thrown over by her self-centered and uncaring ex, a man who was happy to allow her to work two jobs while he was getting his law degree and birthing his daughter. Now that the money is ro...more

I really liked this book a lot and I’ve been waiting a
long time to read Tiffany and Blaine’s book. Ms. Force
did a great job, again!

At the beginning of this series, I didn’t like Tiffany.
She was just so grumpy and resentful but thru out this
amazing series, I started to understand her better and
like her more and more. In “Longing for love”, we “see”
a different Tiffany,so brave, outgoing and stands up for
herself . I got to say, I really like this Tiffany and
I was rooting for her and Blaine....more

This series is completely amazing. I started it when i saw that Maid for love was free and i decided to give a try, now i'm just completely hooked and in love with each and every character even if they are not the main characters they stay with you and you think about them constantly. Marie Force will take you on a ride where you will find love, happiness and heartbreak, but you are going to love every second of it and you will not regret it. What i love about this series is that Marie doesn't f...more

I love the McArthy's of Gansett Island, and with this book we see a slight change of pace. It's naughtier, it's funnier and Blaine is certainly sexier. The opening of the `store' is hilarious and Tiffany certainly keeps Blaine on his toes, although he knows what he wants and goes for it. He doesn't give Tiffany time or the opportunity to have any doubts, he knocks all her barriers down before she has chance to erect any. I love that all the old characters, along with some new, are still there. Y...more

And the best erotica scenes for this series begin here!!! I was getting a little tired of the same old sex scenes but Marie came through and changed it all up.

Blaine is just WOW OH WOW!!! Super smexy and dominate in every way possible. He could give Christian a run for his money because he's experienced love and betrayal before and can easily distinguish between the two. So he understands his emotions much better and is Mr. Kinky - love me some Blaine!!!

Tiffany is a great person, strong and inde...more

While I adore this series and every character in it, the main characters in this installment didn't do it for me. Still, it was great to remember everything about this series I had forgotten so much as it's been a while since I got my hands in a book from it. I kept waiting for something big to happen, something different, but it never did. Only the last 10% of the book and it seemed a bit repetitive because something very similar had happened in one of the previous installments.

Maybe I just wa...more

Review to come.
Marinella
The Gansett Island's series is really good, amusing, interesting, but I haven't connected with these two main characters. The plot too is not so breath-taking. I found Tiffany and her actions unnerving and sometimes silly, most of all in her work. So, a nice read, but not to compare with some of the other books...
Krystal


Man oh man !!!! I freaking loved this ! This is my favorite story since Mac and Maddie !!!!! Tiffany is strong and loving. Blaine is super hot and together they take being naughty and nice to a whole new level !!!!! The story also had me at the edge of my seat, completely absorb in the story. Ill be counting down till the next book about Adam :)

3.5 stars

Not sure why, but this couple just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t like Blaine’s dominant, overly sexual persona in the bedroom and it just seemed like their relationship was more sex than heart. Even though there was emphasis placed on the couple really caring for each other and their situation and emotions, I didn’t buy it. And when these two made love at first sight declarations similar to the other couples in this series but I was able to believe it with Mac & Maddie and the other...more

Another wonderful addition to the Gansett Island series. Fans of the series will enjoy Blane and Tiffany's story especially since Marie Force amped up the heat on the island.

(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).

(This review may contain spoilers).

So... it's become even more official. This series of books is my favourite and I'm really happy that there doesn't seem to be an end in sight so far.

I felt that this book was a little less chaotic than the previous one. It was still nice to see the other characters and how their relationships were going, but I felt that a bit more time was spent on Blaine's and Tiffany's story.

It was rea...more

Marie Force has brought readers back to Gansett Island with a BANG, and boy do I mean a BIG HOT BANG!

A lot of readers of The McCarthy’s of Gansett Island series have been waiting for Tiffany and Blaine’s story and Marie did not disappoint.
Tiffany has been through a lot in the last year. Her husband left her and took everything, leaving her and their young daughter with nothing but an empty house. Now she is finally divorced from Jim, and opening her new s...more

Longing for Love was another fantastic novel by Marie Force. I just loved Tiffany and Blaine's love story. Their romance was the perfect combination of naughty and nice. Their relationship was a combination of sweet and sexy, heavy on the sexy. Tiffany and Blaine had a very hot, playful, and adventurous sex life. Ms. Force definitely spiced things up in this novel. In my opinion, Longing for Love is the sexiest no...more

It was great to get back to Gansett Island with the McCarthy family! LONGING FOR LOVE was another typical installment that didn’t disappoint.

Once the attraction between Blaine Taylor and Tiffany Sturgil got started in the early books, I was really looking forward to their book. Although it wasn’t quite what I was expecting, there was plenty of hotness going around.

I liked the fact that their story did pick up quickly and there wasn’t any of that ‘introduction’ phase once her divorce comes thro...more
A Tasty Read Book Reviews
From http://atastyread.blogspot.com, Racy Red Panties Week

I for one was THRILLED when Marie announced that Tiffany was going to get her own book. I had been sayin that Tiffany needed a good "Schtuping" since book one of the series, and she was still married then, but I didn't think she was going to be married for long.

If you are a reader of the Gansett Series, you know that in the last book, Tiffany and Blaine shared a wildly sexy encounter on her kitchen counter that set us up for what was to c...more
Patty
well.. this is really mixed feelings review.
on one hand i really liked to read about all the characters of previous books.. what is going on with them, which is nice continuity.

however... for such few pages, there was too much noise from every other character except Baine & Tiffany. actually not much happened with these guys.

I think the intention was to prepare us for the upcoming stories, but somehow the love story between Baine and Tiffany was cut short in between everybody's else drama....more

I like so many other readers have been waiting for Tiffany and Blaine to finally get together and man do they ever get together. There's no denying Blaine is sex on a stick and Tiffany is just the woman to take a lick! Seriously, these two are hot, hot, hot! That's not to say there aren't issues in their relationship; Tiffany's ex is still a jackass, Blaine's mom doesn't approve, and Tiffany's blatant decision to promote her store by parading around in next to nothing are all issues they have to...more
