The McCarthys of Gansett Island: Book 1

Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s “favorite son,” Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be “maid” for love.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 easy read, trainstationromance book 16 novembre 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First book of series " The McCarthys of Gansett Island ".

For free, so easy read. The story goes too quickly and makes it less believable. Too quickly in their confession of love, too quickly in their love story.

This is more a station romance book. A bit too much housewife lit.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Pure Prince Charming Fantasy 16 juin 2011
Par T. Wheaton - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This is one of those books that I really think that you have to read with either a) a fair amount of disbelief suspended or b)you just love the romance fantasy of a basic Cinderella story.

Mac McCarthy is from a wealthy family who are well known and liked on a small New England island.

Maddie Chester lives on the same island but is of a decidedly less golden family. She was tormented in high school for developing early. And one lie by one guy resulted in a tarnished reputation that followed her into adulthood. She is either ignored or shunned by most of the townspeople, her mother is in jail and she is given the worst of the clean up jobs as the maid in the inn Mac's family owns.

When Mac comes back home for an enforced vacation, he bumps into Maddie precipitating an accident that results in Maddie's bike (her lone transportation) getting destroyed and causing her injury.

Mac wants to make it right so he decides he is going to help Maddie out while she is recovering.

The set up is fine. The writing is good and the storytelling flows quickly and easily. This is one of those contemporary romances that just goes down smoothly and is tailor made for a light summer read.

My issues, and why I can't give this more than 3-stars, has to do with credulity. I know many readers will be perfectly fine with the swiftness of the romance and the way Mac swoops in and makes everything just right for Maddy in a matter of weeks. That's fine. That is where the fantasy part of the romance comes in. For a lot of romance readers this is catnip and this book would be right up their alley.

I am not one of them though. I like a little more grit sometimes with my books. I like Marie Force's writing style and I like the bones of story if not necessarily all the meat of it. I also just can't get past the super sticky sweetness of some of it or my skepticism at the trajectory of the romance.

Mac is a long-time confirmed bachelor who really has no desire to be back home. Yet he bumps into Maddie, takes her home, cleans her up, moves into her house, takes care of her kid, takes over her cleaning shift at the inn, and takes over her duties as a day care helper. And this is all just within the first day he gets back home. Within the first week he and Maddie are madly in love and within weeks after that he has completely restored her tarnished reputation.

This is pure Prince Charming fantasy. It works on some levels and on others it simply doesn't.

I heartily recommend it for readers who really like that in their stories.

Other readers however, if you don't like love-at-first sight stories or want a it more meat with your stories this one may not work completely for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great start to a new Marie Force series 30 avril 2011
Par nyy13girl - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Maid for love is the 1st book of a new Marie Force series.. its a wonderful start.. Mac (a big "bad" McCarthy) is finally coming home for a must needed vacation (medical reason).. not in town 30 mins when he steps off the curb into oncoming bike traffic, Maddie is a single mother from the "wrongside of the street" according to the rest of the town.. she has been made fun of since high school for "early development".. Mac makes Maddie fall off her bike and she is hurt very badly. unable to work, or take care of her son, Mac steps in and takes charge in every area of her life..

I have read all of Marie Force's books available on Kindle and i have to tell you that this is a great start. I can't wait for the next one with Joe and Janey.. I laughed, I got teary, and of course couldn't wait to see if she was willing to let someone in her life.. Great Job Marie Force!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Read Through Work 7 mai 2011

Oh dear... Having access to my Kindle ap through my iPhone doesn't do me any favors. While I was supposed to be working, I instead took an extra long lunch break to finish up Maid for Love! I first got started on Marie Force from Love at First Flight. I was SO happy to hear she self-published a few more books because I felt she wasn't writing fast enough!

Maid for Love was a wonderful story that I adored. There were some clichéd moments but every-time I was about to sigh and think it was typical, she took the story in another way and made me smile instead.

I can't wait for the next two. Marie Force has jumped to the top of my auto-buy list!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Mac wasn't a hero for me 11 avril 2013
Par McReadsALot - Publié sur

I've read several other reviews, and I can see where they are coming from -
If you are looking for a really cute, cheesy, romantic read, this could definitely be the book for you.
If you are looking for a little more depth and character development, this is probably not it.

I enjoyed a lot of scenes (not just the sex, which I've already forgotten, honestly) but not the whole story.

Maddie is okay, a little weak and annoying, but okay. Her sister is never developed past over-protective and annoying.

Mac, though, was a big disappointment. Throughout the book he makes decisions that concern Maddie FOR her, without consulting her, because obviously he knows what's best for her. When she refuses his advances, he talks with his father about how he's not going to take No for an answer...And gets encouragement about making her see that they are right for each other. Uhhh...slightly creepy. Granted, this is a romance novel, but I would have much preferred it if he were willing to accept her words and back off until she came to him. I like my characters to be someone I'd like to meet, and if I met someone like Mac I'd be pissed at him. You don't just take a woman's baby for a walk without leaving a note, make her a public spectacle, or lie to her face about life decisions you've made for her. It's not romantic, it's controlling. And he's like that for most of the book.

Maddie irked the crap out of me when she confronted him about his behavior and finally stood up for herself by saying she couldn't be in a relationship like that, then she just GIVES IN when he tells her, "That's who I am!"

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I try to be very careful when reading free books and this book was one of the reasons why. The characters, in my opinion were not realistic. What was expressed in their thoughts in the book didn't translate to their actions or the storyline. I finally couldn't read anymore it was too painful and cheesy. The plot sounded good and could have been a good book, however the characters never really developed and all they were interested in was sex, from the beginning. There are a lot of better series to read if I am just looking for That type of genre.
