Firstly, Damn you Kate, that was so unfair (soooooob!!).
Secondly, this book made me feel so much! I laughed (a lot!!) and got angry, cried sad tears, cried emotional tears, cried happy tears. I had an emotional break after the final chapter, before the Epilogue, because I was still crying in my kitchen - because Mac and Jake's dad (heart clench), after that other thing she put us through.
But then the Epilogue read last night, which I thought was going to be on a lighter, happier note... Wham with the tears again. Granted, these were hard won happy tears. But sobbing on the couch ensued.
I feel like I've been put through the emotional ringer, which is not unusual with Kate's books - she gets me every time, which is why she's firmly on my favourite author's list, an auto buy.
Having said that, I had trouble with pacing around the middle, which I think the problem I had was it just had too much content, that the central story of Mac and Jake, stopped moving forward, as we travelled through time, returning to events from all three previous books. Which, don't get me wrong, I remember those books fondly, I even re-read them recently to prepare for this one. I flew through the first 50% with Jake and Mac's back story, which went far back to the age of 10 when they first met, which was full of badassery, fighting siblings, Aussie family dynamics, a burgeoning first romance. It was around about when the rock band Jameison assembled and we met much loved familiar characters, that although I loved them, I got impatient that Jake and Mac's central story seemed to take second stage as timelines were reinacted, and I lost momentum, and I started to get impatient. I got impatient with the toxicity of Jake and Mac's relationship around about here, which didn't seem to have an end. Although I understood why, because events that led up to it. They just weren't moving forward, until at around 75% Mac realised she needed to fight for Jake... And we were back in the story, with my full attention, at about a million miles per hour. Mac and Jake's story moved forward with an intensity and it never let me go with rivers of tears right up until the end, the feeling of complete satisfaction of a book well read. And strangely, a desperation for more. Huge book bait for Mitch's story, which I won't hold my breath, as Kate has started a new series (arrrrhh!), but I'm completely there for it.
For those New to Kate McCarthy, start with her stand alone book Fighting Redemption (military romance).
Jake Romero has no choice but to leave the best thing that ever happened to him, taking him down a path that leads to notorious gang, the King Street Boys. When fate throws Mackenzie back in his life, he turns her away in her time of need, knowing he now lives a life in which she doesn’t belong. Except his decision has shattering consequences, leading to secrets, lies, and the ultimate betrayal.
Years later, their lives continue to entwine, and when his past returns demanding retribution, Mackenzie intervenes and gets caught in the crossfire, leaving behind a devastation that no one sees coming. Can their relationship withstand the hell it’s endured, or is it too late for love?
Wow!! This has got to be Kate's best book yet!! I LOVE every book of her's but this one was just AMAZING!!! LOVED Mac & Jake's story! This book will have you an emotional roller coaster like no other!! Their story was so moving and real your heart
I’ve been dying to know more about Mac and Jake’s story since their first antagonistic appearance together in the series. I knew their story was going to be epic, but there was no way for me to guess just how crazy and intense and EVERYTHING this book was going to be. The twisted and pot-hole filled path they had trodden in order to figure out the lives they were destined to live was insanely damaging, but these two were able to find a way to make that very road heal them.
Give Me Hell was an apt title for this book. While every character in this series has experienced horrific things, it seemed that Mac and Jake had to walk through the fires of their personal hells before they were given a reprieve. The amount of secrets, lies, losses, and pain that was contained within the pages of this book would have been enough to take a person any weaker than Mackenzie Valentine down, but Mac was able to withstand the tsunami of her life and come out stronger, with a better understanding of herself, on the other side. She waged a war against the confines of her life and won.
Jake Romero was the shining light of this book. A lesser man would have thrown in the towel with Mac before their second meeting, but he kept coming back, no matter what Mac put him through because he knew experiencing the beauty of Mackenzie was worth fighting through the thorns. I’m not sure what Mac had ever done to deserve the kind of love she received, but we would all be so lucky to have someone love us the way that Jake loved her.
Kate McCarthy writes some pretty intricate and well-woven stories. There are so many threads of story line it’s often hard to keep up with every single little thing that is going on, it’s even harder to deduce what the final tapestry will look like once she’s done weaving it. She did not disappoint with this book. I don’t often like books that start in present then go back into the past and slowly wind their way back to the present day, but there was no other way to tell Mac and Jake’s story. All of those tiny moments of the past led them to one of the purest kinds of love a person can know. I am happy that I was able to experience that journey and witness them finding their way.
