GIVE ME LOVE by KATE McCARTHY ~ Blog Tour Stop, Review & Giveaway

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 friend’s 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?

This hot new release is the talk of the town and with good reason!  IT IS AMAZING!!!  I loved it!  Give Me Love will grab hold of you and not let go.  The fun continuous banter will have you laughing right along with the characters.  I fell in love with this book and I know you will too!

Evie Jamieson is living the up and coming rock star life.  She is free-spirited and fiercely loves the ones closest to her.  Evie has had her fair share of bad boys so now she plays it safe with the nerdy boys whereas always protecting her heart.  Just as her band is about to make it big Evie must decide if taking a real chance on love is worth the risk.

Jared Valentine owns a successful security consulting business with Evie's brother, Coby.  Jared is the ultra hot alpha male with a tender spot for Evie.  Jared and Evie have an immediate connection although it takes years to act on it.  Their lives are so intertwined with mutual family and friends forcing their paths cross at every turn.  Evie tries to keep Jared at arms length but the world stops when Jared kisses Evie and honestly I totally see why!
Couple of Jared quotes that I LOVE!

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

"I feel like everything is so much brighter when I'm with you.  When you're not there it's like someone turned out the lights."

There are so may supporting characters all of which you will love.  My two favorite are Coby and Mac.

Coby Jamieson is Evie's older brother by 7 years.  They have a tight bond since their mother past away on Evie's 16th birthday and their father disappeared years prior.  Coby tried to take care of Evie after their mother passed however Evie lead herself down a dangerous and destructive path.  A quote from Give Me Love sums up how much Coby loves and admires Evie:

"You know, honey, I couldn't be more proud of you right now if I tried.  You talk as though you don't deserve this..." he held up a hand as I attempted to interrupt "....but you've worked so hard for so many years.  I know if Mum were here -"

Mackenzie Valentine (Mac) is the band's manger and Evie best friend.  Mac is the spunky and tell it like it is friend that we all need in our life.  She loves to shop and keeps everyone going in the right direction.  Having four older brothers, Mac is fearless and doesn't take shit off of anyone.  She defiantly knows her place in this world.  I hope we see more of Mac in books yet to come. 


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 favorites. Her favorite authors include (and are not limited to) J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh and JD Nixon. Her favorite 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.
