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?
I knew nothing about this book, and had no idea what to expect when I began reading. Give Me Strength absolutely blew me away! The story far exceeded my expectations and had everything I love about a great book: rockers, Alpha males, guys who work in security and even a group of funny and witty friends. Our heroine Quinn was such a sad person, just surviving and not really living at all. Because of horrible treatment she suffered growing up, she was just moving through life and doing everything she could not to feel anything. But then along comes Travis, one of the amazing Valentine brothers. He sees something in Quinn, but she truly believes she deserves nothing in life, and that love and happiness will never be for her.
There is lots of emotion, action and even humor packed into this book, and lots of incredible characters that I truly connected with. I could not put this book down. In my opinion, Give Me Strength has the great qualities of a Kristen Ashley book such as the drama and the close and loyal friendships. I loved that the supporting characters are witty and funny, and that the guys are hot and protective. I also really loved the characters’ loyal friendship and the drama Kristen Ashley-style but only because it was done well. This book has everything I love: emotion, drama, love and hot sex. What more could you want? This was a great, satisfying read, don’t miss it!
