Desire After Dark (Gansett Island Novel) By Maria Force
Tobias “Slim” Jackson has the perfect life as a pilot on Gansett Island in the summer and in Florida in the winter. He’s happiest when he’s in the air, or at least that was the case before last summer when he met Erin Barton, Gansett Island’s newest lighthouse keeper. Now he can’t seem to find his usual enthusiasm for flying, winter in the sunny South or anything that doesn’t include her.
Erin has been stuck on pause since she lost her twin brother. She’ll tell you herself that her life has been a hot mess since Toby died. After dropping out of law school, she’s flitted from one pointless job to another, existing rather than truly living. Then she comes to Gansett Island to take over as the new lighthouse keeper and meets Slim, who happens to share her beloved brother’s first name. That small coincidence is enough to convince Erin that she needs to spend more time with the dashing pilot—except for the fact that he’s spending the winter more than a thousand miles from her.
Now Slim’s come home to Gansett for the holidays and to hopefully pick up where he left off with Erin. He’s got twelve days before he’s due back in Florida to finish out the remainder of his winter obligations. A lot can happen in twelve days, but will it be enough to convince Erin that it’s time to start truly living again? Read Slim and Erin’s story and catch up with the rest of the Gansett Island cast in Desire After Dark!
WOW! This was the first book I have read in this series and it was AMAZING .It made me want to read every other book in this series!
Slim was such a wonderful character he gave me butterflies in my tummy every time he spoke. I felt his connection with Erin was off the charts he just knew her so well. I adored the way he stuck with her no matter what. The love he gave her was phenomenal!
Erin has such an intense background I felt sad for her at times, but when she finally gets the spark she needed her character blossomed. I loved her and she finally has Slim who makes everything better for her and her move to the island was the best thing she ever did!
I want to re read this book just for the feeling it gave me!
