She's waited a long time for her second chance at love.…
It's been 12 years since Jenny Wilks lost her fiancé in the 9/11 attacks in New York City. Since then she's been floundering, trying to find her way. Taking the job as lighthouse keeper on Gansett Island was the best thing she could've done for herself. On the island she's found amazing friends and a wonderful new life. There's only one thing missing and that's romance. She's recently asked her new friends to fix her up with some of the island's more eligible men. While her friends are busy arranging dates for her, Alex Martinez comes to cut the grass at the lighthouse.
He's given up everything to come home to Gansett to care for his ailing mother.…
Alex has gone from cultivating orchids at the US Botanic Garden in Washington to cutting grass on Gansett, like he did as a teenager. Running the family business with his brother while managing their mother's dementia requires Alex's undivided attention until a sexy lighthouse keeper shows him there's much more to life than work and endless obligation.
During a scorching summer heat wave on Gansett, Jenny and Alex take comfort in each other, and what begins as a hot summer fling quickly becomes something much more lasting. But will it hold up beyond the heat wave when real life intrudes on their sexy interlude?

The story was atypical. The narration was amateurish in that there was a nasal quality that at times made the characters indistinguishable.
This is about a women whom had been hit by 9-11 and other tragedies and comes to the island to heal.
And a man that comes back home to help his brother take care of a sick mother. The emotion in this book is off the charts . 9-11-01 is a day that touches all Americans weather we knew someone there or not,but to be drawn to a character with such a close tie , well it was heartbreaking.
To have both broken people get there hea after all the crap was Beautiful . Props to the author!!! Excellent JOB!!
One out of 5... I Give A 10!

Would you listen to Meant for Love again? Why?
Probably not due to the narrator.
What other book might you compare Meant for Love to and why?
All the Gansett books in the series. Good series. Well developed characters.
Would you be willing to try another one of Holly Fielding’s performances?
Only to finish up this series.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
The narrator detracts from these books. All the men sound the same. It is difficult to follow when the story moves from one character to another since most of the males are voiced the same and most of the women's voices are the same. I like Marie Force but I am hesitant to read another book read by Holly Fielding.
I enjoyed this book and found Jenny and Alex's story particularly engaging. I almost gave up on the series after the last book but am glad I didn't. Jenny and Alex are both strong characters and you can't help but want things to work out for them. Unfortunately the narration is no better than in the previous books.
