Title: Give Me Strength
Series: Give Me, #2
Author: Kate McCarthy
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

Quinn Salisbury doesn’t think she’s cut out for this whole living thing. Even as a young girl she struggled. Just when she thinks she’s found a way to leave her violent past behind her, the only thing that’s kept her going is ripped away, leaving her damaged and heartbroken. 

 Four years later, she is slowly rebuilding her life and lands a job as an assistant band manager to Jamieson, the hot new Australian act climbing their way to the top of the charts. There she meets Travis Valentine, the charismatic older brother of her boss, Mac. 

From his commanding charm to his confidence and passion, Travis is everything Quinn believes is too good for her, and despite her apprehension, she finds their attraction undeniable and intense. 

 When her past resurfaces, it complicates their relationship. Instead of reaching out for help, Quinn pushes Travis away, until a staggering secret is revealed that leaves her fighting for her very life. 

 Torn between running and opening her heart to the man determined to have her, can Quinn find the strength within herself to fight for her future?

When the book begins we see what happens to Quinn a few months after her boyfriend Ethan dies. She finally has a place of her own, at eighteen, and she is expecting her friend and neighbor at the door. But when she doesn't make sure it is her friend before letting them come the person come in she realizes she made a horrible mistake. A mistake that will change her life forever.

 Four years later Quinn is going out to a bar with her friend Lucy. Lucy is determined to get Quinn out and about again. She wants to help Quinn move on with her life. And Quinn also wants to move on, even though she knows danger could be lurking soon. When Quinn meets Travis she has a wonderful one night stand with him, but then realizes that she can't be with him, so she runs. She never thought she would see him again, until turns out he is her boss's brother. 

As Quinn's life begins to change with all of the people she works with, and with Travis constantly around her she doesn't know what to do, or how to feel. She is constantly not sure if she doing the right thing, and she also thinks she's putting them in danger by being with them. But Travis, and the rest of them are determined to prove to Quinn they will help her and be there for her. 

 I have to say I really enjoyed this book. It was wonderful. The author did a wonderful job creating the chemistry between Travis, and Quinn. But also the bond between all of the people in the group. You can easily tell they all care about each other, and would do anything for each other. I loved how brave Quinn was in the end. I admit at the start she frustrated me, but then she grew on me, and by the end I loved her. 

And I loved Travis throughout the whole book, he was just that awesome. The side characters were also a major part of the book, and I feel for Casey. I really hope he gets a book, because hew as my favorite! This is the first book I've read in the series, but I plan on reading more, this one was very good. It had drama, action, and lots of romance! And I look forward to more in this series.
