Review Give Me Love, Give Me Series by Kate McCarthy

Title: Give Me Love
Author: Kate McCarthy
Series: Give Me
Release Date: March 15th 2013


Evie Jamieson, a former wild child, is not only a headstrong, smart-mouthed trouble magnet, she is also a lead singer with a plan. That plan involves relocating her band, including her two best friends guitarist Henry and band manager Mac, to Sydney to kick off their dreams of hitting the big time.

Jared Valentine is the older brother of Evie's best friend Mac and also the man determined to make Evie his. They strike up a long distance friendship which suits Evie because she's determined to avoid the distraction of love, not only because it doesn't fit in with her plan but because twice in the past it has left her for dead. Moving to Sydney however, has put her directly in Jared's path and he has decided it's the perfect opportunity to make his play.

Unfortunately Jared, co-owner in a business that 'consults' in dangerous hostage and kidnapping situations, makes an enemy who's determined to enact revenge. When this enemy puts Evie in his sights, Jared not only has a fight on his hands to make her his own, but also to keep her alive.

Is accepting the love he's so desperate to give worth the risk to both her heart...and her life?

Author Bio

 Kate McCarthy grew up in a small town outside of Port Macquarie, Australia. Raised in a house just a short walk to the beach, Kate enjoyed the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and friendships that come from being raised in a friendly, small town area.
She now resides in Brisbane, Australia, a city in the state of Queensland where she works as an accountant, along with a sideline wedding cake business and her writing.
She is married with two children, has two dogs and house in the suburbs, and a pile of friends and family dotted all over the country that help keep her sane.
When she’s not busy running after naughty kids, filthy dogs, crunching numbers, piping buttercream and writing books, you can find her curled up in bed in the early hours of the morning reading new books and re-reading old favourites. Her favourite books are the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward in which she longs to eventually join the brotherhood and change her name to Phierce Mutha.

"Because one day you'll belong to me, Evie, and I'll know everything about you."

How do you keep your heart safe, how do you keep from getting hurt by a guy? Easy. You date the guy that is, in no certain way, your type. If you're into bad boys, you date the boring, safe ones. 
That's what Evie Jamieson does. She's learned her lesson and has been dating the geeks, nerds, boring and safe ones because there was no way she was getting hurt by them. And it was, indeed, true. But then she meets her best friend Mac's, brother - one of them - and she knows from the first glance that Jared's trouble with a capital T and she could easily fall for him, so she does what she knows best. Keeps as far away from him as she can. Of course it doesn't work that way, especially when Mac is trying her damnedest to bring them together. But Evie agrees to be friends with Jared and this works for a while. Everything changes when, for the good of the band, they all move to Sydney. All bets are off then and Jared makes it pretty clear he wants Evie.
Now, let me tell you, these Valentines... These guys are frustratingly hot and badass. They're tough. Oh and not only the Valentines, but Coby Jamieson, Evie's brother and Casey Daniels too. The latter actually flipped over a few times with his car and walked away, unscathed. Badass. 

They don't make it easy on their women and us readers. You can't help it. You fall and you fall hard. For one, for all. 
It doesn't really matter.
I was hooked, from the very beginning, until the end of it. I laughed, chuckled, snorted, sat on the edge of my seat, wanted to bang my head into the desk - Jared can be awfully frustrating but I get him, I do - and then melted. And of course I wanted more when I was done reading.
The magic, the sparkle between the book, story, characters and I was still there, even at the second reading of it. 

5 stars for a favorite book, favorite series. Be sure to read it, then immediately dive into Give Me Strength - Travis Valentine is the hero, my baby - and then Give Me Grace - Casey Daniels will steal your heart and won't give it back.
