Reviewed: Longing For Love by Marie Force BEST OF THE BEST Rating!!...

Longing For Love (The McCarthys of Gansett Island, #7)
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. 

The McCarthys of Gansett Island takes a decidely erotic turn in this seventh book! If hot, sexy men in uniform cavorting with hot, sexy women who sell sex toys for a living aren't your thing, this book might not be for you!

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 myself with fictional characters more than with The McCarthy's of Gansett Island. The way that Marie Force writes this series and how she brings each of the stories to life gets me every time. 

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 was so happy to revisit with all of my favorite characters and some new ones as well. Joe and Janey, Mac and Maddie, Evan and Grace, Grant and Stephanie, Owen and Laura, and of course Big Mac and Linda. I cannot wait to read about them all again in Adam's book. I am also anxiously waiting for more of Kara and Dan, Daisy and David and Jenny. I am so interested in where Marie is going with these characters. 

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. So good that I had to reread right after I was finished!! LOL :)

Thank you, Marie, for continuing on with this series and allowing me to escape into this wonderful world that you have created. I look forward to each and every book with anticipation of what will happen next. 

"I want to do something kinky." (Blaine to Tiffany)  Tiffany's belly fluttered and her pulse beat hard in her throat. "Isn't everything we do kinky?" 

"It's good to know your mind is always in the gutter, even when you have the flu. I like that in a woman." (Blaine to Tiffany)
