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.

#1 Give Me Love

#2 Give Me Strength

Give me Grace is the 3rd book in Kate McCarthy's Give Me series! and certainly worth the wait.  

I can already hear you say that  to get acquainted with the series and characters you have to have read the previous two books, but you're wrong. Reading the first two books is unnecessary, as this book can be read as a stand alone novel.
But I highly recommend reading book 1 and 2 as this series is awesome!!

This is the highly anticipated story of Casey Daniels, an extremely sexy and dangerous alpha male. Casey is a former cop and along with his best friend Travis have set up a highly successful security consulting business which provides security for Travis's sisters band Jamieson whenever they play gigs.
He hides behind sarcastic remarks and lots of casual sex. But as he watches his friends pair up and find the loves of their lives he cant help but feel jealous.

Grace is Henry, Jamieson's lead guitarist's sister. When the band's bass player is injured in a car accident, leaving him unable to play, Henry calls his sister to take over. An international model, she agrees to leave her life behind for 8 weeks.
She doesn't want her family to know the extent of the sacrifice she's made to make sure that her family are taken care of, so she stays away.  Spending time with the family that is Jamieson it leaves her questioning her past and her future and what decisions she needs to make.

One thing Casey and Grace have in common is having experienced major loss in their lives and both have secrets related to those loses. Not to mention the sexual attraction between them - which leaves them both with an intense hatred for each other, despite really liking one another.

The question is will they give into the sexual attraction? Will they finally deal with their pasts and reveal their secrets?

The book was filled with drama and suspense, drawing your further page after page.  Giving me Grace will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat one minute, laughing out loud the next. It leaves you wanting to scream at your reading source in anger and shedding more then a few tears. Its literally a roller coaster of emotions, unsure of whats waiting for you around the next bend.

If you haven't read the series, i highly recommend that you do, you wont be disappointed!!

**** 1/2 emotionally charged stars!! Can't wait for the next book in the series.


I slipped out the front 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’t 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. “Casey?”

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.

“Casey, you’re scaring me.”

“I’m sorry.” Our eyes met for a brief moment, the connection intense. Raw pain flickered in his eyes before it was quickly banked. “That’s the last thing I want to do.”

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.

“Where are we going?”

He shook his head as if he had no clue. After a moment, he replied, “I want to drive, but I don’t want to be alone. I want to be with you.”

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’t 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.


He glanced over at me.

“I want to be with you too.”

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.

“Are you okay?” I asked.

“Sure.” A smile came to his lips. It was forced because it never reached his eyes. “Just a bad day at work, you know?”

“No, I don’t know. Maybe you should tell me.”

The roads were eerily quiet when he pulled to a stop at a red light. “I don’t want to talk right now.” 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.

“I want to fuck you, Grace. Not just tonight, but every night,” he professed, his fingers working me expertly. The red light

turned green, but with no cars around, Casey ignored it. “Hard enough for it to hurt, so that when you leave, me fucking you is the only thing you can think about.”

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’t 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.

“No,” I gasped.

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

“There’s something wrong,

Casey. I can feel it.”

His hand slipped out of my panties and I mourned the loss. “I don’t want to talk about it,” 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’t sure if Casey and I would ever find a happy medium.

Drawing a deep breath, I forced calm. “Maybe you should take me home.”


My brows flew up. “No?”

“No.” He shook his head, his tone cold and harsh. “This was your deal, and now you want to turn it into some kind of relationship? That’s 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.”


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 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 PhierceMutha.
