Desire After Dark by Marie Force - Review

Marie Force has a unique way of story telling.  Desire After Dark: A Gansett Island Novel was my first book that I have read by the author and it was such a breath of fresh air.  You don't just get one story, but a handful of side stories as well.  They all interconnect to the two main characters, Erin and Slim.  Not only did I fall for Slim and all his hotness, but also for all his friends on Gansett Island.  I think I may want to relocate there!

After losing her twin brother, Toby, in the 9/11 attacks, Erin had difficulty with getting close to anyone.  But when Slim entered her life she rethought her single life.  The only problem is that Slim is a pilot and because of the way her brother died, she has a fear of flying.  Her flying phobia is not the only issue, she has dealt with since her brother's death.  But having Slim around, makes working through them all whole lot easier.  

Slim has always been a commitment phobe since his high school relationship scarred him.  He never stayed overnight after being with a woman and had no intention of ever settling down.  His life and career also made it difficult.  Half the year he spent up north on Gansett Island and in the winter months in Florida.  However, after months of texts, Facetime and phone calls with Erin, he started to wonder if he could include a woman in his life permanently.  

I absolutely adored Slim,  he was a good guy from the beginning and stayed that way until the end!  He was sweet, caring and supportive of Erin.  He was sexy, romantic and was willing to do anything to make a relationship with Erin work. 

I am not sure how to sum up the other stories in this book.  There isn't enough time to recap it all.  I guess you'll have to read the book and find out for yourself ;) . They were just as sweet and romantic as the main story.  Each couple had their own dramas and hardships but they worked through them together.  It was a nice change to read a story where you like all the characters throughout the entire book!  Usually you begin to hate the main characters (usually the guy) until they start to redeem themselves.  Like I said before this book was a breath of fresh air!  :)  I can't wait to dive into the rest of the series!
My Rating 4.5
