Their age difference doesn’t matter…until one of them wants to put down roots.

A year after his 31-year marriage imploded, Dr. Kevin McCarthy is enjoying life on Gansett Island. He’s opened a small practice, goes fishing with his older brothers any time he wants and has his sons, nieces and nephews close by. Best of all is his all-consuming relationship with sexy bartender, Chelsea Rose. What started as a one-night stand a year ago, has turned into something much more significant for Kevin and for Chelsea. The sixteen-year age difference between them has never mattered, until they realize they may have differing plans for the future. Will they be able to reconcile their divergent paths or will their hearts be broken when they go their separate ways? Find out in Gansett Island Episode 2: Kevin & Chelsea where you’ll also hear about Big Mac’s latest business venture and have a visit with the Gansett Island characters you’ve come to love!

About the Gansett Island Episodes…

From Marie: My fictional island has become such a huge part of my life—and yours—over these last six years, and I’ve created so many characters who speak to me between books and during the writing of new ones. I can’t possibly give them all a new story in every book, but I still have so much to say about them. With that in mind, I’ll be launching a new “Gansett Island Episodes” series in 2017, featuring shorter stories about past characters who readers love and want more of. Mixed in with these episodes will be at least one full-length book a year. So we’ll have plenty more from our favorite island, with new stories for past characters as well as all-new stories, too. I’m looking forward to this new adventure and hope you’ll take the ferry to Gansett for the new episodes!

5 Star Review of Kevin & Chelsea (Gansett Island Episodes #2) by Marie Force This is one of my favourites series. I love meeting and learning more about the McCarthy's of Gansett Island. This is an extremely well written book full of love and family and one I thoroughly enjoyed.  What do you do when your marriage of 31 years is suddenly no more? This is the position Dr. Kevin McCarthy finds himself in. He decides to visit his family on Gansett Island; little does he know but that decision will change the course of his life.  He re connects with and falls for sexy bartender, Chelsea Rose, who is 16 years younger.  I really like Kevin and Chelsea together.  The chemistry is there but can they forge a path together or will they be split apart by their differing plans for the future?  I love catching up with the McCarthy's and their extended family. Marie Force brings Gansett Island to life for me and I so want to visit.  Another great addition to a series I enjoy.

You will love them laugh with them rejoice with them you will also cry... Marie Force is a wonderful writer... I give this and all her books a 5 star.....

I don't know how Marie does it but she must always continue to do so. Kevin and Chelsea's story was to me a story of growth and change and overcoming. It truly was wonderful and having the other Gansett folks show up was an added bonus. I wish the next book was already out.

This is the best series ever (not counting Quantum...oh my) so funny. Sometimes I am laughing so hard especially when the guys "just won't learn". Sexy and funny and just the perfect read.

Why wouldn't you want to escape to Gansett Island again? Another Gansett Island book and another hit! We are once again welcomed back to Gansett by the McCarthey clan, whilst this book primarily focuses on Kevin and Chelsea we also get to drop in on the rest of the islands residents. Kevin and Chelsea have some major life decisions to make and once again Ms Force tackles these with care, humour, hot sex and love drawing you in so you experience every moment with the characters. You feel the heart ache, the lust, the frustration, the fear and the love in every page. I love every visit to Gansett and cannot wait for the next one.

Kevin is in the middle of a divorce and he’s looking towards the future. I do feel like it’s important to remember that he’s older than Chelsea, the age gap does not bother me but it may not be for all readers so I do feel it’s a point I need to mention. He feels happy with Chelsea, he’s at peace and ready to move forward in his life. Chelsea wants children but they’re both at different stages. Kevin has two children who are all grown up. He never thought he would be a father again. I like the conflict between these two, they’re both wanting to be with each other but at the same time, they also want to be together. There is a lot of will he decide to have kids or not. I really enjoyed seeing how this book played out. I love hearing about the other residents too. It’s a book I definitely recommend to all Marie Force fans. This series is not one to miss! 4 stars!

One of the many things I enjoy in these books, is the interaction of past characters. This did not disappoint. Good read,romance, steam and story. Can’t ask for much more. Good read.

I love being able to read about everyone and this book is about second chances for Kevin and giving herself something she never knew she wanted for Chelsea. A must read!

Didn’t see this story line coming at all LOL Very good read and great to catch up on the other couples - always so much going on and Mac is as funny as ever. It was great to see where Kevin & Chelsea’s relationship is and where they are headed.

This is book 18 in the Gansett Island Series. These new additions to the series are focusing focusing on Big Mac's Brother's and their family's. His brother Kevin has come to the island to regroup after his 31 year marriage ends. He meets Chelsea. Through his relationship with Chelsea he realizes that his marriage has been dying for years. His wife puts a pause on their divorce and is wanting to talk reconciliation. Chelsea also brings up a topic that he never thought he'd even be considering at his age. He now he has some heavy thinking and decision making to do. I absolutely love the Gansett Island Series. It's a series that I re-read. Some series lose a person's interest but that isn't the case with this series. I love that in each book it feels like we are getting another chapter in the McCarty's lives. It almost like book 1 has never ended. We get to revisit/catch up with each of the McCarty's and those close to them. I love the McCarty's, their banter, their pranks, their deep love of family. Even though this is part of a series I feel you can read this as a stand alone. The author has a great way of writing that introduces you to the characters without taking away from the continuation of the story. From my standpoint I get a deeper appreciation for each book as I've read the whole series and always look forward to catching up with the family and their friends.

With his divorce about to be finalized, Kevin is feeling free at last. His unexpected relationship with Chelsea is almost at the one year mark and could not be doing better. For once in his life, he feels completely at peace and the fullness of a happiness he never dreamed he would experience. Chelsea feels she is about to rock their relationship. At 37 years old, she is acutely aware that is she wants children and a family Kevin might not go along with her. Having a child is one of the desires she has not fulfilled. Will Kevin agree or will he bolt? Afterall, there is a 16-year difference between them. He already has his sons in their late twenties. He has done all of this before. Will he take the leap with her and give her what she desires most? I love, love, love anything to do with the Gansett Island residents! They are real! They love, suffer, and succeed just any human being would. Following this group of characters through all their ups and downs is addicting. I am definitely a fan of anything the McCarthy men get into. They are fun and loving! I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I thank the author for sharing a copy with me.
