I already knew all the characters going in, so I already liked everyone :)
Evie is the lead singer for the band Jamieson. They are at the point of getting really famous. Her bandbrothers are Frog, Cooper, Jake and pretty Henry. All of them were awesome. Her best friend and their manager is Mac. I really loved Mac in all the books and I can't wait to read her story (book 4).
Evie and Mac's brothers own a security firm, which is how Evie and Jared meet. Both have been seriously burned in the past, so both have them have some trust-issues they have to deal with. This story is a slow burn, especially because Evie is bit hardheaded, so it takes some time for her to give in.
Ofcourse she can't resist all that is Jared and these two are really sweet together, once she get's her head out of her ass. However, when someone from Jared's job starts stalking Evie, things get a bit tense and mistakes are made.
I really loved this one, but I have to say that book 2 and 3 are still my favorite, especially Casey's book (3). I also had a feeling that the steam was a bit less in this book...more fade to black. I don't remember any of that from the other books. It was however very funny and I had more than one LOL moment.
I'm very glad that I'm now caught up with this series and I'm seriously fangirling over book 4, which will be Mac and Jake's book !!
If you're looking for books with hot alpha's and feisty independend women, you should definitely give this series a try. In my opinion, each books just get's better and better.
When Evie first met Jared she was instantly drawn to him, and that hasn't changed since then. She used to live a plane ride away, but as this book opens she is going to be moving to the same town as him. How will she ever keep him from hurting her? Annoying. She obviously really likes him and he her so why not see what happens? She was really frustrating to read and I didn't like her much.
Then suddenly she decides okay, we are doing this, and then it is like they are living together right away. Okay, way to move like lightning speed. Fine, but the book is not even halfway over yet. So what is the rest of the story? Well some not so good suspense story. Someone is after Evie to hurt her because Jared and crew where there when bad guys brother got killed or something. It was a bit ridiculous in the way it played out. I just...it didn't seem realistic especially if Jared and crew had a company where their job was hunting down bad guys and such. They just can't find this one, he keeps causing trouble and getting away. It was a bit too unrealistic and underdeveloped I think. If it would have been the main focus of the story with Jared and Evie falling in love at the same time it might have worked. As it was it felt like two different books neither of which I really loved.
There are a lot of characters in this story and it can be hard to keep everyone straight, especially with all of the nicknames. I think my biggest issues, the thing I liked the least, was that they all felt very immature. All the names they called each other and such I didn't really like. I felt like I wanted to tell them all to grow up already. That and the "retard" name calling is not cool.
Oh and there is plenty of extra drama added for no reason. Like ton of guys getting thrown at Evie that make Jared freak out that she is cheating and stuff. By the end I got to the point where it was like really? This is what we are doing now? Why not throw in a few more things just for fun? It was all a bit much.
I did like that Evie was the female lead singer in the rock band. I don't see too many books where it is a female rock star as the lead. But overall it was not my favorite read.
This review was originally posted to Jen in Bookland
There were several times I found myself yelling "Oh, come ON!" or shaking my head or calling Evie a whole litany of interesting names. I am self-admittedly hard on heroines, but I could not for the life of me bond with Evie. I even had to work on it with Jared. Henry was the best of them. I loved Henry. However, Henry is the most memorable secondary character. There were SO many different secondary characters that I found myself lost several times throughout the book. I understand and appreciate group dynamics. I love a close group of friends. But if they don't leave an impression, if they don't actually stand out to where you remember them, then they are just literary white noise. I hope to one day pick up the rest of the series to see how the author has grown as she continues to write.

This book is so god damn cute.
I’ve no idea how I’ve gone this long without reading anything by this author. This book is jam packed with hot sometimes alpha men.
Alpha men are my catnip and Jared was basically making me purr!
I love the banter and camaraderie between this huge cast of characters. At did at times struggle to keep up with who was who because there were just so many people.
Evie was a sweetie and I found her really likeable. All of the nicknames made me chuckle and the banter between Evie and Mac felt just like a conversation me and my bestie would have.
I enjoyed the subplot of drama and threat I always felt like I was waiting for Jimmy to strike. When it all kicked off at the concert I was shouting at my kindle Mac don’t do it!!!
My heart went out to poor Casey, obviously he never stood a chance but I still wanted to give him a hug.
I can’t wait for Mac and Jakes book; I’m hoping that’s who she ends up with.
I really enjoyed this romance and will definitely carry on with the series.
Give me love gets 4 stars from me.
I love every single character of this book from the hero and heroine to all of the secondary characters. The storyline isn’t rushed and there are no faults within the book and editing. Evie and Jared are perfect for one another, they are so cute! The puppy scene had me swooning! I loved the car scene between Jake, Henry, Evie and evil Jimmy – if you have read this you will know what scene I am talking about. The further into the book you get, the better the story gets, definitely a five star read in my opinion.
After being burnt by love in the past, Evie Jamison only dates losers and geeks that don’t have the power to hurt her. When she is introduced to her best friend, Mackenzie’s older brother the attraction is instant. Over the years Evie makes it a hobby to avoid him, only becoming friends by having a text relationship. When Evie and Mac move to Sydney Evie is now closer to Jared, making it easy for her best friends to play matchmaker. After a rough start Evie gives in to giving a relationship a go with Jared, but just as things settle down for the two, chaos happens and Evie ends up in a handful of dangerous situations. Will it ever work for Evie and Jared?
I totally loved Kate's Fighting Redemption so I was so hopeful of a great read.
Maybe I set my expectations too high.
In the opening chapters we are introduced to so many characters that I remain confused as to which are band members, which are friends, which are family. So there is Frog, Cooper, Jake, Mitch, Tate, Travis, Jared, Coby, Casey, Mac, Evie, Steve - you get my point, I could name more......
Then there is the issue over nicknames, why did Kate give them so many? Mac gets, Mackenzie, Macface, Mactard, Mackelwaine - just why? Evie gets Genevieve (her proper name) and Sandwich.
Parts of the plot felt a bit shoved in for the sake of it. I didn't get why the whole Evie/Casey thing happened or even what the hell happened.
I did like Pete! Not a band member, not family, not a friend just a dog. I picture Mike Thurston as Jared, which was also a bonus.
It wasn't your typical boy meets girl and falls in love. It's the first book in a while that has had me up till the early hours of the morning.
Evie is the lead singer of a band that is on the verge of making it big, she's had a crush on her best friends brother since she first saw him and living miles away from each other exchange texts everyday for 2 years till her and the band move to his home town. Jared is a bad ass hot as hell hostage consultant who is determined to make Evie his.
This book is full of action and just felt so different to what I've been reading recently, the supporting characters were great I loved Mac's take no prisoners attitude and the relationship Evie had with her band especially Henry.
Really looking forward to reading Travis' s book!!
Thank you Kate McCarthy..!!
