4.5 STARS FOR TRAVIS & QUINN!
This is the second book in the 'Give Me' series. The series follows new, upcoming rock band, Jamieson, crime fighting ‘badass brigade’ Jamieson and Valentine, their friends, families and the crazy, mind-blogging sagas, baddies, shootings, kidnaps and general madness that comes with them!
In the first book, 'Give Me Love', we met Jamieson vocalist and front woman, Evie, and the swoonworthy Jared Valentine!
'Give Me Strength' gives us Travis Valentine, Jared’s sexy, long haired older brother, and Quinn Salisbury. Quinn has just landed the job working for Jamieson. She is assitant to Mac, Jamieson’s manager and the youngest and only female Valentine.
A chance meeting with Travis in a bar, on the first night out Quinn has had in three years, turns out to be much steamier than she’d ever imagined it would be. When she sneaks out before Travis wakes, she doesn’t expect to see him again. Until she realises he is the older brother of her new employer. Insert awkward moment here!
But Quinn has secrets in her past that have left her incapable of giving or receiving love. It’s as much as she can do to get through each day without social faux pas, panic attacks and mental break downs, so holding down a relationship is a definite no-no!
“I’m really sorry,” I whispered. “I can’t do this.”
“Can’t do what?”
“Life,” I muttered under my breath. “It wasn’t meant for me.”
But Travis isn’t so easily swayed. And as he shows that he is determined not to let Quinn go so readily, her past catches up with her, just to complicate things further.Read more ›
Back to Jared and Quinn, I love a strong Alpha Male in the story like Jared but also a strong female character who knows what to do with a chair! Thanks to Quinn’s stepdad the Italian maffia is after Quinn and at first she wants to solve her own problems by doing what she’s always done, run away and start over. But this time it is Jared holding her back. Jared who showed her that there is something worth fighting in life for. Quinn had an awful, awful past, I even shed a few tears for her. But thanks to Jared and her own dose of willpower and strength she is able to overcome this and finally in many years – to move on. What a night in a bar can do to a girl! ^_^
This book was once again full of Romance, Comedy, and angsty moments especially for Quinn, I wanted to punch that stepdad of hers baaaaaadly! I can highly recommend this series by Kate McCarthy. As she writes a mean Epilogue too! And what is better, the books so far timeline wise and epilogue wise are all tied in together. You might be able to read every book as a standalone but the story will be better understood if you start from book one, Give me Love.
I didn't think a second book could be as strong as the first but I enjoyed this one more, probably because there was more emotion and maybe because the foundations had been laid in Give Me Love I was itching to see what all the supporting characters were up to. The character interactions are so natural and also often hysterical and you will most likely find yourself laughing out loud as I was.
I never go into the story in a review, that's what the blurb is for and I don't want to give anything away except my opinion - bottom line, buy it (but read Give Me Love first if you haven't already), you won't be sorry :D

I love all the characters and the story.
Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
The second book has not let me down. The story line was brilliant and the characters still very realistic. Lots of laughter and a bit of crying but a great readPublished 23 months ago by jennifer wardle
