✪ Blog Tour ✪ Review ✪ Give Me Grace ✪ Kate McCarthy

Casey Daniels has a past forged in Hell. Despite the friends, the endless supply of women, and the muscle car he spent years restoring, it still eats away at him.

Grace Paterson is in
Sydney as a temporary bassist for Jamieson, the band Casey handles security for. Shes also infuriating, off-limits, and completely irresistible.

A deal is struck, and despite their intense and powerful connection, both think it will be easy to walk away. But life can be more ruthless than either of them ever imagined. Not only does Grace have a secret she
s desperate to keep, Casey has questions from his past that hes willing to do anything to get answers for.

s not until someone wants one of them dead that Casey realises his love for Grace is the one thing he could never walk away from.

In a story of revenge, betrayal, secrets, and love, Casey will need to reconcile his past with his present, before the future he never knew he wanted is snatched away.

I have been a big fan of Ms McCarthy and the Give Me series from the minute I first read the first chapter of the first book.  And to me, the series just keeps on getting better and better.

Casey Daniels has always been a bit of an enigma in the series, and I have always wanted to know more more more.

And Give Me Grace does not disappoint.

There is just so much about Casey that we didn't know, and it sure was an adventure learning more about him. Behind that confident, cocky exterior there is a man in a world of pain.  

"I tried.  I f&^king tried, but I can't do this Trav.  There's nothing there, and I'm tired of pretending there is."

Grace is the brother of Jamieson band member Henry.  International model, super successful career.  But not is all as it seems there either.  Everyone thinks she upped and left her family for fame and fortune, but things could not be further from the truth.

When Casey and Grace's world come together, it is not all hearts and butterflies.  They don't get off on the best of terms, but right from the start you can tell that things are going to heat up between the two.

I love the banter between these two.  They are both so cocky and smart mouthed and quick witted.  It is like a tennis match between them when they get into a war of words. 

 You just know that as much as they fight it, there are gonna be fireworks when they get their act together.  But fight it they do for so long.  Gah, talk about frustration for the reader!!  But it is all part of the wonderful story that Ms McCarthy writes.

And it is worth it!!!!

"Besides, no one's cock is that good.  Unlesss it can perform magic tricks.  You got a magic dick, Casey?"

I willed myself to stay calm.  "I do," I replied, my tone thick with sarcasm.  "Every time I get a woman in my bed, I like to perform a little trick I call now you see it, now you don't."

 See, gotta love that smart arse attitude!

Of course there is plenty of suspense, action and surprises just waiting for the reader.  Grace's secret was something that I so completely was not expecting.  We know that she is hiding something, but my mind went to a lot different places than what it actually was.  

Casey's story is deep, intense, heartbreaking.  But it is also beautiful and heartlifting.  I may have shed a tear or two for him as the story progressed.

Ms McCarthy is very quicky becoming one of my favourite authors.  I have read all her works to date, and each one is better than the last.  Her stories flow well, are well paced, and will drag you right into the story from the beginning to the end.
 Now, what the heck am I going to do until the next book in the series comes out???



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 shes 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 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
