Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Book #1 in the Give Me series.

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 uprooting her band, including her two best friends 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 his 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?

*Please Note: Kate McCarthy is an Australian author and Australian English, spelling and slang have been used in this book. This book is recommended for 18+ due to adult language and content.*

So, I wanted to love this book. I wanted to really like this book. But as much as I wanted to do both, I came away with mostly a "meh". And this is huge for me, since this was the first book in this series and I can NEVER start a series without finishing it, or at least reading all the books that are available. I put the rest of the series on the back burner.
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.

Give Me Love was felt like it was trying to be a few different books, but didn't really succeed at any of them. It starts off as a romance, Jared trying to win Evie over and get her to admit she has feeling for him. That worked okay, but Evie could be frustrating. I didn't really understand why she was so adamant about keeping away from Jared. Sure when she was young and acting out she made two really bad decisions with guy and she got hurt, but they were bad people. Jared is not. She is best friends with his sister who keeps trying to push Evie to give him a chance. Mac, the best friend, knows all about Evie's past, so she should know if Jared was a jerk like the other guys. I don't know. It was just...I didn't understand. So you got your heart broken twice you are just going to give up? Date "safe" guys who she likes, but not really like that.

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.

*Spoiler alert*

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 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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 But there were a couple of things I liked about it 1 octobre 2014

If I was giving out stars for potential, I would give this a 4, BUT I'm not so this gets a 2.

I give the author props for an extremely original idea. The whole aspiring rockstar meets Blackwater badass thing had the potential to go very poorly or be very exciting. Unfortunately, the author didn't execute it very well. This book is a fracking mess.

But there were a couple of things I liked about it:

1. The description of Jared at the beginning was super hot. Jared was a tolerable hero. He could be kind of an idiot, but at the beginning he had me swooning.

2. Henry. He was a good friend and the ONLY memorable supporting character.

That's all. That's all I liked.

I HATED the way this was written. Here is a gigantic list of everything I hated about this book.

1. The random asides and foreshadowing. This book spoiled itself CONSTANTLY. It was infuriating. Reading this book was like having this conversation:

Person 1: Have you seen The Sixth Sense?
Person 2: No. Is it good?
Person 1: Yeah. Really good. The kids sees dead people. Bruce Willis's character is dead the whole movie! Do you want to watch it?

Seriously. The author would flat out state that something major happened and then have Evie "flashback" in her mind to fill us in. Why couldn't we experience everything as it was happening?

2. The way time passed in this book was bizarre. Sometimes entire weeks would pass with no warning at all. A major event would occur and then 3 weeks would pass and it was all better, but the reader has no idea what happened and why it's better. We're just told that it is.

3. There was moments where I was extremely confused. Sometimes I just did not understand what was happening in the book at all. There was an entire chapter that was total nonsense to me. Additionally, things would happen that were never explained and did nothing to progress the plot. For example: Evie gets sick. For no reason. She's just randomly ill and goes to the doctor. There are pages written about Evie being sick for no apparent reason. She doesn't miss any shows, nothing bad happens, etc. Evie is just sick... to add to the word count? Then some guy from the record label requests to meet with Evie alone. He INSISTS that no one else comes with her, but it's never explained why.

4. A lot of times it felt like this was 2 books smashed together. It felt like the author couldn't decide if she wanted this to be a thriller or a romance so she just mashed the two together and half-assed both. There was no development of Jared's job or company. The subplot involving the search for the bad guy was extremely underdeveloped and was only mentioned whenever it was convenient for the main character. It was almost as if the author should have just cut this entire arch. Plenty of conflict could have been created without involving the heroine in the drama. Honestly, this aspect of the book was incredibly boring.

5. The random switch to Mac's POV at 80% for one chapter gave me hives. I cannot express the depths of my fury over this.

6. Every single outfit that Evie wore was described in EXCRUCIATING detail. Here's the thing: I DON'T CARE! I don't care how her aqua shorts elongate her legs or how her tank top highlights her chest. I don't care at all. You've already described her. I know what she looks like. It was like the author thinks the reader is so stupid that they can't assume Evie changes her clothes every day. We need a play by play every time the woman gets dressed.

7. I am usually the first person to defend unlikeable characters. I don't think authors are obligated to deliver likeable or even redeemable characters. There are s***** people in the world so it makes sense that they're represented in literature. That being said, I found the casual homophobia in this book unacceptable. The characters repeatedly say things like "You're not turning twink are you?" and "If they could turn gay for each other, they would." Not okay with me. The universe doesn't need anymore of this garbage.

8. This book has about 8,000 characters. I couldn't keep everyone straight. Who are: Cam, Casey, Dean, Tim, Frog, Travis, Mitch, Steve, Peter, Jake, Gary? The number of minor, male characters- who are all incredibly hot, of course- is astronomical. I felt like I needed a flow chart.

I didn't finish it. I had trouble following it after the first forty or so pages (or equivalent on the kindle) and after looking ahead and not liking what I saw, I gave up.

I don't give up that easily, usually, but at the get-go, it felt and was all over the place. Maybe it's just that I don't find the rock star and band premise that interesting? Probably a part of it. And, if I'm being very honest with myself, the Australian English and slang and references didn't help much. I'm not suggesting she should try and edit anything out - but Australians are going to understand what she's referring to, whether it's a setting, or a product, or just a turn of phrase, whereas I'm not, as an American.

I suppose the other aspect was - I wasn't warming to the characters quickly enough. Had I found something there to connect with, I probably would have soldiered on longer, but they seemed pretty silly and self-absorbed without any other depth to them. I know that probably comes in later, but for me, I have to get hooked relatively quickly, especially with genre fiction.

Is that wrong? I want you, the author, to tell me a story and don't hold back. But keep focused on the plot and let me begin to love your characters, at least the hero and heroine - and yep, give me either a "happily ever after" or a "happy for now" ending. Is that so much to ask for a Romance novel?

I get that authors these days are writing series, as this increases sales. It's a smart move but it's dependent on characters I want to continue with. I just didn't with these young women.

However, I give her two stars for a. effort and b. it was free, so I didn't waste any money. THANK you for that.

I absolutely loved this book (I read it ages ago and I'm re-reading for the release of Give Me #3) and I realised I had not left my review, sorry Kate
I think the 2nd time round I loved this book even more. I fell in love with Jared and Evie and the rest of the crew. The story sucks you in and it has a little of everything; love, suspense, drama, romance, action, heartbreak, HOT sex and even a car chase. If I had not already read Give Me 2, this is where I would say "I cannot wait for the next book in the series" and even though I already have read the next one I'm going to say "read the next one in the series, you won't be disappointed"
