Give Me Love Blog Tour

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?

"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."

Jared leaned down close behind me to speak and his warm breath against my ear gave me shivers until his words sunk in. "Out of all the chairs in this place, and after what just went down between you and me, I find you sitting here, next to him."
I half turned in my seat, incredulous, my voice loud enough for the whole table to hear, and I didn’t care one bit. "You aren’t going to tell me where I can and can’t sit now, are you?"
He lifted his arms from my shoulders, straightened, and took a step back. "Damn straight."
I stood up carefully because three drinks thrown back in rapid succession wasn’t for the weak. Then I raked him over with a scathing glance that was, unfortunately, fuelled by alcohol. The table went silent and rather than embarrass myself by turning into a screaming basket of drunk trash, I hissed quietly. "We need to talk."
Matt, eyeing our conversation with a knowing look, turned to face me in his seat. "I warned you, Evie."
My eyes widened and I shook my head to indicate he should shut up, but my non-verbal warning was foolishly unheeded.
"This is what fucking happens. Better now than later." He waved his hand towards Jared dismissively.
Turning towards Matt, Jared unfolded his arms. They were now tensed by his side, fists clenched, knuckles white. It wasn’t looking good for Matt, and before I could open my mouth to speak, Jared beat me to it.
"What the hell did you say to her?"
All eyes at the table swivelled to Matt, including mine. "Nothing she didn’t need to hear."
I closed my eyes at the reckless statement.
"Let me guess..." Everyone turned back to Jared and his seething tone. "Three weeks ago, you stuck your fucking nose into business that wasn’t your own. You did this by spouting a load of bullshit, and it must have been bullshit because you don’t know me from Adam. Then that bullshit you spewed got her so wound up she shuts down and can’t even talk to me about it. Are you happy now? Is that your mission? To make other people as miserable as you? Because you let that shit fester inside her and sat back for the fallout. Tell me, because I really want to know, exactly what it was that you fucking said to her?" The last part ended on a shout, making me flinch and effectively silencing the tables surrounding our already subdued huddle.


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