Sometimes the best offense is a good rebound...
Adam McCarthy has had a really bad week. In addition to nearly losing his three brothers in a tragic boating accident, his now ex-girlfriend has double-crossed him right out of the successful computer company he founded in New York City. What he needs is a few days at home on Gansett Island to make sure his beloved brothers are safe and to get back in touch with what really matters - his family, his friends and the tiny island that soothes his battered soul. On the ferry ride home, he runs into an old family friend who's had her own share of heartache, and Adam helps her through some rough moments, sparking an unlikely alliance.
Abby Callahan has come home to Gansett, single once again after her relationship with Dr. Cal Maitland blows up in her face. After two epic failures in the game of love, she's decided this is going to be the summer she busts loose and finally has some fun - and she's shaking things up in a big way! The new Abby swears, drinks, gets a tattoo, sleeps around and generally does anything her kinder, gentler alter ego wouldn't have dreamed of doing.
Before too long, Adam has appointed himself her guardian and is determined that the only sleeping around she's doing is with him. That is unless his brother Grant is willing to risk his newfound happiness with Stephanie to keep Adam from rebounding with his ex. And what happens when Adam and Abby realize their summer fling has taken a serious turn, especially when he gets the chance to return to New York and fight for the company that's rightfully his? Abby has already followed two men off the island. Does she have it in her to find out if the third time really is the charm?
Another wild summer on Gansett Island is under way, complete with new stories for many of your favorite couples from past books! You'll also see more of Dan and Kara, David and Daisy, and find out whether Carolina has made peace with her relationship with the much younger and very sexy Irishman, Seamus O'Grady. Ready? Set? Let's go back to Gansett Island!
Author's Note: While Waiting for Love is more or less intended to be a stand-alone story, you'll enjoy it so much more if you read the earlier books in the McCarthys of Gansett Island series first.

"With the McCarthy's of Gansett Island, Marie Force makes you believe in the power of true love and happily ever after. Over and over again." (Carly Phillips, NY Times bestselling author of the Serendipity series)
I enjoyed this listen and the chance to hear Adam's story. Although it works as a stand alone it is probably more interesting and engaging when listened to as part of the series. I enjoyed reconnecting with characters introduced in earlier books almost as much as I did with the main characters in this listen.
I found this enjoyable and an easy listen. Given it was an audio book, the numerous side stories was a bit disconcerting and it took a while to sort out who was who especially as this was the first book that I read in the series. The narrator did a good enough job, not adding nor detracting from the storyline.
As the tension between the two main characters was overshadowed by the numerous side stories some of which tendered to be just a 'repeat' of each other , I would think twice about listening to another book by this author.
