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!

5 Star Review
This is book 15 in the McCarthy's of Gansett Island series and it can be read as a standalone, but I feel you would get so much more from it if you have read the previous books.
Erin is just going through the motions of life after losing her twin brother on 9/11 and she has come to Gansett Island to take over looking after the lighthouse and try and move on with a new life, the last thing she expected was to meet a man and never a man who shared her brothers first name.
Tobias or Slim to his friends is the pilot that spends his Summers on Gansett Island and his Winters in Florida/ Some might say a perfect life but then he met Erin and Florida was not so attractive any more.
The McCarthy's and all their friends are an amazing bunch of people who have you laughing and crying and what can you say about the one liners those cute little ones get. As always we got an insight into new books that will be coming and I really hope its Mallory's story next.
Marie Force has a way with words that draw you in and make you feel like you not only know this family you know Gansett Island as well/
Another great read.
This is book 15 in the hugely successful The McCarthy’s of Gansett Island series and is the story of Tobias “Slim” Jackson and Erin Barton.
Slim has a great life. During the summer months he is a pilot on Gansett Island and in the winter he works in Florida/
Erin is the new lighthouse keeper on Gansett Island and since the death of her twin brother has avoided life.
When she meets Slim whose first name is the same as her beloved dead brother, Erin sees it as a sign that perhaps she should get back into the land of the living and starts spending time with Slim .
They are attracted to each other and have an easy camaraderie which I found a lot of fun to read about. When Slim returns to Gansett Island for the holidays his hope is to pick up where he left off with Erin. But will Erin be able to brave the emotions that Slim evokes and start living again? That is the question.
It is always great to read a new story about Gansett Island, it’s like coming home to your family as you get to catch up with what is going on in their lives.
This book as with others in the series was an extremely well written, sweet, sexy and romantic book. A fantastic addition to the series.
This was my first Marie force book and although it had me confused at the start, a list of all the Gansett island folk helped me keep on reading!
What I enjoyed about Slim and Erins story was the emotion, their connection and how things went for them! The whole family and friends were amazing! Such beautiful friends and combine that with their incredibly funny lol get togethers makes for an easy and entertaining read!
I loved how Erin came out of her shell with Slim and the things they divulge to one another was wonderful to see!! I certainly hope we hear more about them in the future!!
