Family Saga/Contemporary Romance
For four of the best summers of his young life, Luke Harris was in love with Sydney Donovan, a wealthy seasonal visitor to Gansett Island. Then Sydney went off to college and never came back. She married another man and had two children while Luke remained on the island, working at McCarthy’s Gansett Marina and wondering what had gone wrong between him and the only woman he ever loved. Fifteen months after Sydney suffers the tragic loss of her husband and children, she’s returned to Gansett to figure out what’s next, and that may very well be a rekindled love affair with the one man from her past she’s never forgotten. But is she ready for a second chance at love?
A Sexy Second Chance Romance
Continuing on my Gansett Island series reread, Ready for Love is book 3 in the series. This is Luke and Sydney’s second chance love story. Luke is one of my favorite characters of the series.
You catch up on some of characters from the first two books and more relatives and friends are introduced. A second chance love also sparks for Ned, the islands “cab driver” and Big Mac’s best friend. Grant McCarthy meets Stephanie and they will have their own story in book 4. Blaine Taylor also meet Maddie’s sister Tiffany who get their story in book 7.
