Longing For Love Review

Title:  Longing For Love
Series:  The McCarthys of Gansett Island #7
Author:  Marie Force
Release Date:  Oct. 2, 2012
Buy Link:  Amazon

My Rating:  4 Fiesty 's

Series favorite Tiffany Sturgil steals the spotlight in Longing for Love as her new boutique Naughty & Nice opens in downtown Gansett, right in time for the annual spring Race Week festivities. Finally divorced and ready for a new beginning, Tiffany wonders if sexy Police Chief Blaine Taylor thinks of her as often as she thinks of him since their explosive encounter last fall. Back then he directed her to call him the second she was officially divorced, but the opening of her store and her unconventional advertising "campaign" have put the island's lingerie queen at odds with the town's top cop. Despite their clashes, when these two finally get together after months of steamy build up, readers will need to keep a fire extinguisher close at hand!

Blaine has been burned in the past by love affairs gone wrong, and he's wary about risking too much too soon. But he quickly discovers that Tiffany's sarcastic rejoinders and bitter outer shell hide a badly wounded heart of gold. He also discovers she's a "sex-toy fraud" and convinces her she can't possibly sell the merchandise without trying it out first... While he finds himself thinking of her all the time, the mayor is after him to curb her sexy advertising and his mother worries that Blaine has taken on another "project" who will break his heart.

As Blaine and Tiffany fight for their happily ever after, readers' favorite characters from past books are back for more island adventures. Joe and Janey return to Gansett for the summer and discover the big secret his mother has been keeping. Evan learns that Grace hasn't told her parents about him. Stephanie's restaurant is ready to open in the renovated Sand & Surf. Dan keeps showing up to "visit" Kara at work, Mac is worried about Maddie's upcoming meeting with her deadbeat dad and a Race Week catastrophe reminds everyone what's really important.


Tiffany & Blaine’s story is the perfect blend of humor and heat. Within the first few pages, I found myself laughing out loud. Within the next few pages, I needed a cold drink and shower as the flame smoldering between these two characters blazed hot and often! The sexual chemistry is off the charts, but can they connect on a more personal, permanent level?

Tiffany Sturgil has invested everything she has into the opening of her sex boutique, Naughty & Nice. And finally, the big day has arrived. No one knew what kind of store she was opening until her big reveal. But are the people of Gansett Island ready and willing to accept a store that sells lingerie and sex…*gasp*…toys in their quaint little town? When opening day proves to be a disaster, Tiffany fears she may have made a mistake risking it all. She can’t back down now, so she gets creative in her advertising efforts causing car wrecks in front of her shop and drawing the attention of the very sexy police chief Blaine Taylor. Blaine hasn’t forgotten what Tiffany looks like naked and handcuffed to a man as that’s the way he first met her a year ago when he was called out about a disturbance and break-in at her soon-to-be ex’s house. And now - Blaine takes one look at what Tiffany’s wearing as she struts up and down main street and blows his top! Oh my . . . things are about to get interesting!

Between the snarky humor and steamy sex, I found myself burning through the pages of Longing For You. A feisty heroine and a dominant, sex-on-a-stick hero going toe-to-toe makes for one great read. With the additional bonus of a great support cast featuring all the past favorites of the series plus the promise of some new pairings, this book is the best one yet, imo. A Must Read!

My Review:  4 Fiesty, Spunky 's . . . And that's the truth!
