Quinn Salisbury doesn’t think she’s cut out for this whole living thing. Even as a young girl she struggled. Just when she thinks she’s found a way to leave her violent past behind her, the only thing that’s kept her going is ripped away, leaving her damaged and heartbroken.
Four years later, she is slowly rebuilding her life and lands a job as an assistant band manager to Jamieson, the hot new Australian act climbing their way to the top of the charts. There she meets Travis Valentine, the charismatic older brother of her boss, Mac.
From his commanding charm to his confidence and passion, Travis is everything Quinn believes is too good for her, and despite her apprehension, she finds their attraction undeniable and intense.

My Review

I received this as an ARC in exchange for a review for the tour.

GIVE ME STRENGTH is a hilarious, love and crime story. I loved every single second of it. When I read GIVE ME LOVE (book 1), I knew I was going to enjoy this series. But for those that haven't read GIVE ME LOVE yet, you need to before you read this one.

This books tells the story of Quinn and Travis. Quinn was raised in a dump, her mother didn't care about her and her step-dad wasn't much different. When she was 17, she moved out after her beloved boyfriend died., leaving her alone and scared. Now years later, Quinn ended up in a night club with her friend, Lucy. That was where she met Travis. Quinn is quite weak on the inside, but that's what made me delicate and really likeable. She might be weak, but she doesn't put her problems onto other people's shoulders. She kept her problems to herself and built a wall around her. 

Travis is...what can I say, he's hot. Like TOTALLY HOT! In fact, all of the Valentine brothers are hot! Travis works for this agency that helps with children kidnaping and abductions. Other than the protective vibe he has for his family and Quinn, inside, Travis is a kind hearted man. He loves his family and cares for all of them, even though they annoys the heck out of him. LOL! Travis was easy to like, love even. And I seriously love everyone in this book. The Valentine brothers, the band, Mac and Evie!

Other than the amazing characters in this series, the book was HILARIOUS! Seriously, between Mac and Henry. Those two are like..the twosome gruesome. They annoy each other out every single day. And whenever they're together, I just burst out laughing so hard that I had to stop for a few minutes!

Kate McCarthy is an amazing writer, you NEED to read this series. You will LOVE IT!! I seriously can't wait for her next book!


Up for grabs are:

1. $100 Amazon GC
2. 2 SIGNED paperbacks (1 INT & 1 AUS)
3. 10 ebooks of GIVE ME STRENGTH
