Amazing! Give Me Hell is the story of Mackenzie Valentine and Jake Romero. They met when they were only eleven and since then their relationship has been a rollercoaster, with lots of ups and downs. They've been apart and found each other again. They let the past, dream, and hopes, interfere and tear them apart. But the love they feel for each other is so intense, it keeps throwing them together. Will they fight to be together? I loved Give Me Hell! Jake and Mac's story took me in a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I laughed, cried, and yelled with them. It will break your heart several times, but each time it finds a way to heal it again. The book hooked me from the beginning and I couldn't stop reading. I loved that we get both Mac's and Jake's POVs and the little flashbacks. I also loved that this book can be read as a standalone because I haven't read the previous books in the series. The little glimpses about the other couples made me want to read about them and I can't wait to read their stories through their POVs. Mackenzie Valentine is a fiery, sassy, stubborn young woman. She knows what she wants and fights for it. She's a bada** and a fighter. But she's also very sweet and protective of her loved ones. She loves Jake with all her heart since a young age, but she's afraid she's not enough for him. Jake Romero has been through a lot in his young life but now everything seems to be coming together. Everything except Mac. He loves her but knows he made a lot of bad choices in the past that changed both. He's a fighter and loyal to his friends and family. Give Me Hell is a phenomenal book. It has lots of drama, laughter, angst, heartbreak, twists, surprises, and much more. Mac and Jake's story will take you on an incredible journey that you'll love and you will not want it to end. The story is flawlessly written and the characters are very relatable. Kate McCarthy's writing style makes it very easy to connect with the characters and the story. I can't wait to read Mitch's and Kelly's stories!
