Sometimes you have to rock the boat . . .
Joe Cantrell, owner of the Gansett Island Ferry Company, has been in love with Janey McCarthy for as long as he can remember. And for just as long, Janey has had a boyfriend—now fiancé—
doctor-in-training, David Lawrence. But when things go terribly wrong and the engagement is broken, Janey decides that a few days on the mainland with Joe—who she calls her “fifth brother”—is just what she needs before she goes home to the island to face her family with the bad news . . .
Loving Janey from afar was tough enough on Joe, but having her in his house is pure torture. Will he keep himself in the friend zone? Or will he take advantage of this opportunity to show Janey what they could have together? And what will his best friend—Janey’s protective older brother, Mac—have to say about it? Now Joe will finally have to decide if it’s time to leave safe waters and set his own course . . .

This was a great read and I liked it as much as the first book of the series. The writing is beautiful, the story wonderful. an excellent summer read!

This book is filled with romance and hot scenes. Characters are carried over from the first book to this one and we are introduced to some new characters. More family dynamics are brought out. One guys stupid action lays the groundwork for an entire new romance. Hope we find where the romance is headed in book three. Don't give up on the series! The more you read, the better it gets!

After wasting all that time being engaged to a man and being in a long distance relationship, Janey finally attempts to right the wrongs in her life. Good for her for seducing a man even though it was a little wrong since she figured out pretty quickly that he loved her. I admired Joe for taking her as she was while trying to guard his heart at the same time. He didn't tell her how stupid she was for not just ending everything with her fiance right away or give her an ultimatum. He just basked in the joy of being with her. In this story the author really tells Janey's story and you realize how gullible she was about her fiance. Granted, she was in love but still. How can you be with someone who doesn't feel that your education is as important as his, who takes his time to call you back, who rarely visits? My heart almost broke for Joe when he overheard her say some things out of anger but was fairly happy with his midievil antics at the end!

Quick read but predictable and too much sex

Most everyone on the island knows all the other people. Joe and Janey learn to solve their problems. Janey is a little immature at times with her desires but otherwise it's agood story.

When I began to read this book, I realized I had already read a previous one where Mac meets Maddie; so, I knew I was in for an interesting story. I was not let down. The characters are well written and relatively believable (for a romance novel). I can heartily recommend this.

I liked the 1st book. Bought this one and liked it even more. I connected right off with the storyline and the main hero/heroine. Great tie in to other characters that just brings you back wanting more. I like "some" series about whole townspeople/setting like Robyn Carr and this is a winner. I think you need to start at 1 to fully wallow in each character but don't let it stop you from starting anywhere the storyline grabs you first. The steamy scenes are just right and not over the top. I admit if the love scenes are duds the book loses my interest. Read, enjoy living through this town as I am.

I've enjoyed reading about the McCarthy's. I've read several of the books, but have not finished the series. My only problem with this series, is the length of the books. Seems there is so much catching up from other books and way too much explicit sex scenes. If all that's taken away, there is a great story, but just not long enough. Would have rather had less sex scenes and two of the characters in one book. Love reading them.

Love the story of Janey and Joe, how Joe's love for her never faltered even when she engaged to another person for 13 years. It's only when she sees her fiance in bed with someone else she realized she wasn't really in love with him. She turns to Joe for help ... and he admits he been in love with her. I loved the way Maddie and Max story (from book 1) continues and I'm looking forward to reading book 3. M2

Loved the first book. Had a little trouble with this second book, because of the main characters. Janey was an adult, but you'd never know it by her "little girl" needs and impulsive, whiney actions. Found it hard to believe she was in a 13-year relationship and still needed her daddy to comfort her so much. As for Joe, his undying love for all those years is a little unbelievable, too. The other characters in the book and their stories carried the story for me. Hope the next book is as good as the first.
