- Book Blitz: Lash by L.G. Castillo
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 friend’s guitarist Henry and band manager Mac, to Sydney to kick off their dreams of hitting the big time.
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! LOVE does not even describe what I feel about this book. I literally sat down with a cup of iced coffee and did not get up until I was at 100% on my Kindle! I was hooked from page 1, word 1 to the characters, their story, and Kate McCarthy's world that she created. I wanted to BE Evie... I felt her desperation in warding off love to protect her heart, her love for her brother and her friends, her loneliness in losing both parents, and her need to be successful. Kudos to Kate McCarthy in writing an AMAZEBALL book that is a must read!!
Evie Jamieson is the lead singer of an Australian band that is about to hit the big time. Her best friends, Mac the group's manager and Henry is the guitarist in the band, and inseparable and kept me in stitches with their antics, bickering, and everyday drama of being roommates. They fought hard and loved hard... which made them even more endearing! Evie's dad took off when she was very young and her mother died on her 16th birthday. Her older brother Coby practically raised her, and she raised hell. Evie loved with all of her heart and soul, which is why she has sworn off love and has sworn to only date dorks because they are safe. This plan works wonderfully until Mac's older brother comes over unannounced to check on his little sister.
Jared Valentine... oh Jared Valentine.... ***sigh***.... he is an Alpha male, sex on legs, goes for what he wants... and he wants Evie! The second their eyes meet Evie realizes this is the man who could not break her heart, but rip it out of her chest, stomp on it, and throw it on the side of the road. She swears to herself right then that she will avoid him at all costs and tries desperately for years to guard herself and her heart... no matter how badly her hormones scream... TAKE HIM NOW!!!!
Evie and Jared are like fire and gasoline. They are HAWT!!! The scenes from this book had me thinking... good God.... I need another shower and a glass of wine to calm my nerves! Jared knows exactly how to woo the panties off a girl and Evie knows it is only a matter of time before she begs him to do just that.
Jared and Evie's brother, Coby, co-own a business that gets them into sticky situations. Unfortunately, one of those "sticky" situations targets Evie and Jared fears for her life! This book has angst, love, HOT sex, danger, drama, comedy, and whatever else you can think of that good books have to addict you to their story!! I easily give Give Me Love 5 stars on the knock my sock off scale! It knocked off not only my socks, but entire wardrobe!!
I had the pleasure to ask Kate what her top 10 MUST HAVES when writing are. Here are her answers... I LOVE them!!
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 Mutha.

We have Julie Richman on our blog today to celebrate her book, Searching For Moore!!
Beau has had contact on Facebook with Mia Silver. Just hearing her name sends Schooner into a tailspin, as he is now just a Friend Request away from the one who got away when she disappeared without a goodbye, leaving him wondering why she left.
A serial failure at romance, Manhattan boutique ad agency owner, Mia, gets a blindside of her own when a Facebook Friend Request from first love, Schooner, appears in her email. Going with her gut reaction, Mia hits accept, propelling her past to catch up with her in a New York minute, as a forceful Schooner is determined to understand what tore them apart and to explore the possibility of a second chance at love.
From a 1980's Southern California college campus and a devastating first love to present day New York City, Searching for Moore explores how technology has eradicated the divide between our past and our present, and asks whether you would give up everything to reconnect with The One in a single keystroke?

We are super to excited to participate in the Lash book blitz!!!
Decades after being banished from Heaven for saving a life he shouldn’t have, Lash is given a chance to redeem himself. His mission: protect Naomi Duran, a young woman who has lost her faith. The assignment proves to be anything but simple when his superiors, the Archangels, withhold key information about Naomi and refuse to restore Lash’s powers. When an unexpected source reveals centuries-old secrets, his trust is shaken to the core, and he begins to doubt those whom he had once considered to be his greatest allies.
Determined to avoid anything that would risk his chances of returning to Heaven, Lash struggles with the greatest obstacle of all—his growing feelings for Naomi. But when her life is threatened by an unknown source, Lash questions the wisdom of the Archangels and his ability to keep her safe. Soon, Lash will have to choose where to place his faith—in the home he has fought so hard to regain or in the forbidden love he can’t bear to lose.
