Synopsis: 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 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 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?
Review: Let me start off by saying i absolutely LOVED this book!!!!! I was hooked from page 1 and I'm now suffering from a major book hangover! Katy McCarthy did an amazing job telling the story of Evie and Jared, you could feel the emotion and love between the two, even when they didn't want to admit it to themselves. I spent the majority of the book laughing at the banter and nicknames between all of the characters. They way the author wrote this book makes it so easy for you to fall in love with all of them so much you can almost believe they are real. I am hoping that there is a book #2 so that i can continue to find out where life takes them next!
