Give Me Grace by Kate McCarthy

OUT OF 5 STARS

Shameless Recommendation

Marissa Not So PNR Mini Banner Once again, Kate has upped her game with Give Me Grace, the latest addition to this series. It has everything I love: romance, humor, great characters, sexy times and suspense, plus a few sweet moments.
I have been waiting for Casey’s story since I finished Give Me Strength last year, and it was definitely worth the wait. Not only did we get to reminisce with the whole gang from the previous two books, but we’re introduced to a couple of new characters that I believe we’ll see their stories at some point. Casey and Grace together are explosive, even if they aren’t trying to piss each other off or avoiding their non-relationship. We also received a nice, healthy dose of suspense and thrills, just like the previous books, and it only enhanced the plot to my enjoyment. But, even though they started out together as temporary sex partners, it ended with a HEA, and an epilogue leading into Book 4 which I needed yesterday. This story (and series) is worth picking up, especially if you enjoy Kristen Ashley, Skye Jordan, or Nicola Claire. ~ Marissa [July 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

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. She’s 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 he’s willing to do anything to get answers for.

It’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.

*Please Note: Kate McCarthy is an Australian author and Australian English, spelling and slang have been used in this book. This book is recommended for 18+ due to adult language and content.*

EXCERPT

I slipped out theåÊfront door, letting it softly click shut behind me. Casey was sitting in his car, staring straight ahead as I walked down the drive. Opening the car door, I slid inside and shut it. He didn‰Ûªt acknowledge my presence, or even look at me at all. He simply shifted gears, and with a quick glance in his rearview mirror, pulled out onto the road.

I clicked my seat belt into place. ‰ÛÏCasey?‰Û

With a hard swallow, he shook his head, keeping his eyes on the road as we drove.

Despite his controlled composure, his face was pale and tension surrounded him like an aura.

‰ÛÏCasey, you‰Ûªre scaring me.‰Û

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm sorry.‰Û Our eyes met for a brief moment, the connection intense. Raw pain flickered in his eyes before it was quickly banked. ‰ÛÏThat‰Ûªs the last thing I want to do.‰Û

His palm slid over my bare thigh, riding upwards as he continued to drive. The touch sent arousal spiking through me, but not enough to override the concern.

‰ÛÏWhere are we going?‰Û

He shook his head as if he had no clue. After a moment, he replied, ‰ÛÏI want to drive, but I don‰Ûªt want to be alone. I want to be with you.‰Û

My eyes fixed on his profile as he drove. The knuckles of his right hand were white on the steering wheel and his jaw tight. Something wasn‰Ûªt right. In fact, something was very wrong. I slid my hand over his, my pulse racing when he flipped his palm over and grabbed hold.

‰ÛÏCasey?‰Û

He glanced over at me.

‰ÛÏI want to be with you too.‰Û

His answer was a squeeze of my hand before letting go.

We sat in silence as he drove. I stared at the dashboard, having no idea what to do or say or how to fix what was wrong.

‰ÛÏAre you okay?‰Û I asked.

‰ÛÏSure.‰Û A smile came to his lips. It was forced because it never reached his eyes. ‰ÛÏJust a bad day at work, you know?‰Û

‰ÛÏNo, I don‰Ûªt know. Maybe you should tell me.‰Û

The roads were eerily quiet when he pulled to a stop at a red light.

‰ÛÏI don‰Ûªt want to talk right now.‰Û His hand fell on my thigh again, the calloused palm scraping my skin as it slipped upwards. Reaching between my thighs, he dragged my panties to the side and slipped his fingers inside, gently massaging my clit and dragging a moan from my throat. He leaned over, putting his mouth on my ear, his breathing coming harder and heavier.

‰ÛÏI want to fuck you, Grace. Not just tonight, but every night,‰Û he professed, his fingers working me expertly. The red light turned green, but with no cars around, Casey ignored it. ‰ÛÏHard enough for it to hurt, so that when you leave, me fucking you is the only thing you can think about.‰Û

I closed my eyes, my head falling back against the headrest. I wanted him to fuck me that hard. I wanted to feel him inside me even when he wasn‰Ûªt there, but not like this. Not when he was using sex to mask a hurt so painful and deep I could feel the ache of it surrounding me until I felt suffocated.

‰ÛÏNo,‰Û I gasped.

He froze at the single word, his hand stilling instantly.

‰ÛÏThere‰Ûªs something wrong, Casey. I can feel it.‰Û

His hand slipped out of my panties and I mourned the loss. ‰ÛÏI don‰Ûªt want to talk about it,‰Û he snapped.

Tension bled into the car as he put it in gear and accelerated swiftly. My eyes burned. When we were good, it was wild and intense and consuming, but we always spiralled into such a hot mess. I wasn‰Ûªt sure if Casey and I would ever find a happy medium.

Drawing a deep breath, I forced calm. ‰ÛÏMaybe you should take me home.‰Û

‰ÛÏNo.‰Û

My brows flew up. ‰ÛÏNo?‰Û

‰ÛÏNo.‰Û He shook his head, his tone cold and harsh. ‰ÛÏThis was your deal, and now you want to turn it into some kind of relationship? That‰Ûªs not what this is. This is about you and me and sex. So maybe you should spread your legs so we can both get what we want.‰Û

GENRE

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
