Book Review: Give Me Love

Give Me Love by Kate McCarthy: 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 uprooting 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 his 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?

TeriLyn's thoughts: Give Me Love was a very good read. Suspensful, romantic, and funny. Every character had a great personality and brought charm to the story. I especially loved the relationship between the three roommates, Evie, Henry, and Mac. They were hilarious. There was so much love and loyalty between this big group of friends.

Jared and Evie are a perfectly flawed couple. The chemistry and attraction was evident from the beginning. So much angst between the two as they tried to get over their pasts in order to be with each other in the present. I loved their texting and bantering.

The suspense of the story was equally as entertaining as the romance. Danger was following them. Jared and Evie and the rest of the crew were strong as ever though. Evie is true bad ass; faces the world head on even though she doesn't realize her loyalty and bravery. This is the first book I've read where the heroine is a rock star and I loved it!
