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?

Book Trailer: I love this <3
Love, Love, LOVED IT!! This is one that will be on my TBR AGAIN shelf, it's that good! This is the perfect mix of rocker chick meets bad boy. It has just enough angst but won't rip your heart out. I loved the dynamic between the band members/friends. Especially Evie, Mac and Henry. They have the best nicknames for each other, it kind of reminded me of the crazy names that my friends have for each other.
One of my favorite lines from the book:
"Ready to talk yet?" he asked.
"How about if I ask you the questions?"
Jared looked amused rather than deterred. "I'll find out eventually."
I put my book down with a huff. "Yeah? How do you suppose you'll do that?"
He rolled onto his side and his eyes did that warm and gentle thing again that made my heart turn to mush. "Because one day you'll belong to me, Evie, and I'll know everything about you."
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
