Every change has its challenges . . .
All her life, Grace Ryan was the "fat girl." Taunted, teased, and ignored by her peers, she tried every diet ever invented to no avail. Desperate to make a change as her twenties slipped away, she decided it was time for drastic measures and had lap-band surgery. More than a year later, she's lost 130 pounds and is venturing into the dating world for the first time. But during a boat trip to Gansett Island with a new guy, Grace refuses to have sex-and finds herself abandoned without a dollar to her name at McCarthy's Gansett Island Marina . . . Home for the summer, awaiting the launch of his debut album, music star-in-the-making Evan McCarthy is performing at the Tiki Bar when he notices Grace looking lost in a sea of happy people. Evan comes to her aid and quickly finds himself smitten. But the last thing Grace needs after all she's been through is a guy who "doesn't do relationships." Will Evan change his ways to win Grace's heart? Praise for Marie Force and her novels "You'll want to stay on Gansett Island too!" -USAToday.com "Force excels at creating characters readers can identify with and care about." -Booklist
