(hide spoiler)] Descriptive Sex with OW/OM: (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)] HEA:(view spoiler)[HFN/HEA, depending on one's view. (hide spoiler)] Safety Gang Notes:(view spoiler)[ Age:Jack is 36. Elle is 28. Push and Pull:Both were aware of the undeniable chemistry, but Elle said he was not what she wanted in a man anymore, that she had given up on bad boys. Yeah right!!! LOL He also said the same thing, he was so in denial and burned by his past (her party-girl neglecting and abusive mother) that he fabricated in his mind that what he needed was, “I want a traditional wife, whose priority would be our children and me. I want a homemaker, not a career type.” Or anything closely resembling the irresponsible, party-crazy woman he’d had at home while growing up. He wanted his kids to have a mother greeting them with a smile and a plate of cookies when they came home from school. A present, involved mom.” Towards the end, after Elle opening up and laying all the cards on the table, he denies his feelings and pushes her away, leaving her, because he's scared of dealing with his feelings. After almost two weeks of isolation, and the support of the Bowens and his sister reasoning, he realizes his mistake and goes back to get his girl. But don't worry his grovel is a good one! ;) OW/OM drama:No OW or OM whatsoever. Sexual Past: Ok, there are some references to their sexual past, some in the form of teasing, some as inner thoughts. None are virgin, and they are aware the other had a healthy past sexual life. Also, they didn't seemed like the serious relationship type, Jack even said as much, but I honestly didn't saw him as the manwhore type. “Sex he could manage. Sex he understood, how to make a woman’s body melt with pleasure. Besides, the more distracted they were by coming, the less inclined they were to want to talk. Or berate him for his lack of social skills. Sex was up his alley; the rest was just a jumbled mess that got him nowhere but into trouble.” “Nope, he wasn’t. He always went to the shower and suggested to the lady that she be gone by the time he came out, if they were in his apartment, which was very seldom. More often than not he would have his sexual encounters in hotels or in their places. Easier to leave. Less messy. Now? Now he couldn’t make a single muscle flex to move away from Elle. Mental.” Elle, given her party-girl vibe and flirting, people thought she had more sexual experience then what she really had. “She had never been prudish when it came to sex, but she was very selective and didn’t jump into bed with the first guy who tickled her fancy. Who would have guessed that, now, with her sitting on top of Jack’s cock? No restraint whatsoever.” So, in my view, they were quite on an equal foot on the matter of sexual experience. IMPORTANT NOTE: During the book absolutely some time frame references regarding their last sexual encounters were not adding up, like, “Being undercover always played a number on his libido, but one look at Elle and he was standing at full salute, ready to go—dying to go, actually—his cock throbbing and reminding him he’d gotten no action in almost a year.” She’d been without sex for months and hadn’t really missed it. Then she spent one measly night under the same roof with testosterone-ridden Jack and she was finger fucking herself in the bathroom like there was no tomorrow, legs barely holding her as she came, hoping real hard the sound of the shower’s running water would muffle her moans. “I haven’t had sex for almost a year and I’ve been dying to fuck you for twice as long, since the first time I laid eyes on you. You can’t ask me to pull out, because I won’t. The second I get inside you, I’ll be coming.” So at first, I thought there were both with other people after meeting the first time - around October - ( were they barely spoke or interacted), but had stopped after getting closer at James and Tate's wedding - August of the year after - were they really felt the pull, after being forced to dance together. From that point on Jack goes undercover and she emails him constantly, and even with him not answering, that was what really made them closer, until the events of the book, on March of the following year. But during the rest of the book and the constant references of the H regarding the importance of the day they met and that he already wanted her there, amongst other things, I was confused, because the author really made a point of explaining that nothing sexual happened even with their dates to the wedding. Therefore I contacted her, and asked if the time reference of 'almost a year' and 'for months' were a mere lapse, and no real indicator, to which she agreed, and answered that, for her, they were BOTH CELIBATE after meeting, Yes, in my mind there was no OW or OM. If there would have been, I would have included them in Jack and Elle's conversations and explained about them (who, how, why), the same way I explained about Kai and the Blonde from James's wedding.. And that was really the feeling I had from her writing and some things that are said along the story! ;) Condoms:They never use condoms because they didn't have them when they first had sex, she was birth control. After that, they had the safety talk and it was cleared that both trusted the other, and that is way they didn't bother it them on the first time. I understood it was Jack's first time without condoms. There is no mention of their use on Elle's past, but the author was a sweetheart and provided the info, I just wanted to let you know that Elle didn't have unprotected sex before Jack. He says that "she might be reckless but dumb she wasn't". Elle didn't have a serious relationship before him, not serious enough as to forego protection. If she would have had a significant ex, I would have add it in their conversations because of its importance.. “I’m protected.” She was killing him. He held her challenging stare. “So that we’re clear: if I fuck you here I’m going to fill you with my cum.”Something he hadn’t done ever before but couldn’t wait to do now. Nuts. “Why did you let me fuck you bareback?” She laughed. “Good morning to you too.” “Answer me. That was fucking dumb. I could have all sorts of diseases.” He didn’t; he got himself checked religiously twice per year, but she didn’t know that. “You’re a stickler for security. The kind of man who would laminate his own dick. If anyone in this world is clean, it’s you. I’d bet my life on it.” Which she actually had done. “The million-dollar question here is, sunshine,” she continued unfazed by his hard tone, “why did you fuck me bareback? I could have all sorts of diseases. I might not be clean. I’m a reckless loose bullet.” Good question. A tantrum from her and she’d had him losing his goddamned mind in a parking lot, eating from her hand like a fucking teenager, forgetting about everything. He knew Elle was reckless, but stupid she wasn’t. She was clean. And now that he’d gotten to take her without protection, there was no way in hell he was going to suit up.” (hide spoiler)] Personal Overview Jack is the epitome of 'Tall, Dark and Handsome'. His mysterious behaviour, silence and permanent scowl only make him more appealling. But due to stay-way vibes, very few dare to get close to him. Within those we find only the Bowens, and the bane of his existence, Elle Cooper. Elle is the exact opposite of Jack, she's sassy, flirty, the true life of the party. She never stops, always doing something and on the move. She represents everything that Jack doesn't want in a woman, or so he hoped...LOL... “She was all that he would ever want in a woman. Except for that attitude of hers. That would ruin everything. It would drive him crazy. He could never trust her, and she would never be happy staying in, making a home for him. Her priority would always be her work. Her agenda. And he was playing with fire. She affected him just by being close to him. Not good.” Teasing Jack is one of Elle's favorite past-times, and in the year and a half they have known each other, even with rarely meeting, every chance she got she took a jab at him. Due to his stoic attitude she nick names him Borg, and it's what she always calls him. “It would have been funnier with you, of course, barrel of laughs that you are. Life and soul of the party, really.” Especially after James and Tate's wedding, where they were forced to interact more, much to Jack's dismay, since they were best man and maid of honor. From that point, with Jack going undercover, Elle took it upon herself to constantly emailing him, to updated and tease him, of course. Even though he never answered the emails back, they got very closer, because they were a bit of a lifeline to him, not to lose himself in his mission on the criminal underworld. Her teasing was the highlight of his day. “Just wanted to be the first to congratulate you on your birthday—or your assembly day—however your kind of people are made.” But when he comes back and Elle's gets in some major trouble, he is the only one who can help her, not that he gave her much choice...LOL Being forced to live and working in close proximity to her, makes all his previous efforts to stay away from her, go right down the drain...They couldn't deny it anymore, the chemistry and sexual tension between them was already off the charts before, but now, it took seismic proportions. And everyone was well aware of it (how could they not?! ;) ) even with them always being in denial. “I knew this was going to happen if you spent any time together,” James continued. “The only reason it hasn’t happened earlier is because you avoided her like the plague.” Of course, when they can't deny it any longer and give in to their attraction, they are still too stubborn to see what's right in from of them, and try to embark in a temporary sexual relationship (because we all know how great those work out *cue snort*). “The obey-me-or-else tone, the one that demands servitude. Doing things on command is not a skill I’ve acquired or have any interest in acquiring,” ( They allow themselves to explore this magnetism, but always put up mental blocks, so that their hearts wouldn't get involved. They genuinely thought they were all wrong to one another. It's a true case of 'There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See'... “Crazy attraction none withstanding, she knew there could never be anything between them. They would drive each other insane. But that was just as well, because she was not looking for love or a relationship. Heck, she wasn’t even sure sex was a good idea. Every time he kissed her, her damn heart stopped and her core flooded. Such raw passion. Such intensity, in the kiss and in the hand restraining her. She didn’t like being held in place, being told what to do, and that was all he did. He was a rock and she would never get him to move. And yet, for all her sound reasoning she couldn’t deny she wanted him, badly.” “Fucking her was mind-blowing, and he couldn’t deny enjoying her wiseass comments and their back and forth outside the bedroom, but he was thirty-six. It was time to stop jerking around and plan for the future. Elle wasn’t his future and he wasn’t hers. She needed an easygoing, laid-back guy that would let her do her thing. He needed a dedicated woman. They would drive each other insane. Love didn’t grow out of conflict. Sexual chemistry did. And building your future on your dick’s whims was a very shaky foundation.” The crazy chemistry combined with their incessant ribbing, gave place to some off the charts, burning hot sex scenes, where Jack always asserted his dominancy. And we all know, by now, that Elle is so not the submissive type. LOL “You can’t take me on. I like my women tied up. Ball-gagged. Blindfolded. Plug up their asses. Pussy spread open for me to fuck it however I want. If I take the gag off, it’s to fuck their mouths.” He was going for shock effect, not that he was exaggerating much. That didn’t shock her. She just whistled. “Wow. No wonder you forget they’re in your bed. How do they communicate? What about the safe word? Do you give them a pad and they use their fingertips to Morse it to you?” She imitated Morse-code-like sounds and added, mimicking a robot, “Tap. Taptaptap. Please scratch my nose. Dying here.” Rest assured, those are not into kink, because this is not a BDSM book. Sure Jack could be anything but dominant in the sex scenes, as well as in life, as he pointed it out, so, besides the sporadic hand restraining, a blindfold at one time, and some anal play at another, I would never consider this story in that genre. After all, Elle is anything but submissive and there was never pain involved, not even spanking. He would never hurt her, he even said as much. “You do know me. I have told you things I haven’t told anyone. Things very few people know about me. And when you say nothing affects me? You are wrong, pet; you affect me. A shitload. I don’t want you to, I actually hated it, but you do. More than you think.” I absolutely loved this story and characters. Their constant banter, and the combination of his broodiness with her sassy attitude completely grabbed me to the book. I can sincerely say that Elle was one of the most genuinely feisty female MCs I have ever read, her come-backs were awesome. And their magnetic pull, like I said before, allied with his intensity was just panty-melting! I had been anxiously waiting (like so many of you) for this book and it was totally worth it! I love the author's writing style and character building. I have to point out how so very helpful Elle (the author) was with my pain-in-the-ass self, answering all my questions and clearing up some points I had during my read. I know not all the writers would go to so much trouble after writing the book, so again, thank you so much! And kudos to you for being such a interactive writer!!! Congratulations Elle, for another fantastic addition to this already awesome series. I can't wait for Morgana's book, I love a kick-ass heroine! "I love your kind of pushy, pet. Never doubt that. For the record, we aren’t a good fit.” She froze at his words. “No?” “No. We are a fucking perfect one." *ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a honest review*

Do you like sassy as hell heroines that give as good as they get and have more zingers than an episode of SNL? Do you like a sizzling hot sexual chemistry that brews even hotter with a slow burn sort of pace the author sets? Do you like your erotica written perfectly balanced with an addicting sort of story and a dash of suspense thrown in? Well lucky day! Because do I have the book for you! She sighed. "That tone is not going to go down well with me, Borg." "Which tone?" "The obey-me-or-else tone, the one that demands servitude. Doing things on command is not a skill I've acquired or have any interest in acquiring." If you've read the previous books in this series, then you'll remember Elle Cooper, Tate Cooper's sister and now James Bowen's sister in law? If you haven't, no worries, because you can easily read this book as a standalone and not be even slightly lost. Jack Copeland is James's shadowy and grumpy friend that now has a tie to Elle that he's not too happy about. The woman infuriates him almost as much as she turns him on. And Elle absolutely loves to tease Jack to within an inch of his sanity. Who's that?" one of the women whispered to her. Judging by his language and social skills, the missing link between humans and monkeys. "A friend of my brother-in-law." Elle is exactly the kind of woman Jack doesn't want; fun-loving, slightly flighty party girl that doesn't take much in her life seriously...unless you take aggravating him as a thing, because she does that real well. But beneath the zingers, insults and barbs they throw each other's way, there's such a heavy undercurrent of lust, that you find yourself squeezing your legs together until that final big boom you know is coming and these two will finally CUMbust. You don't want to fuck with me, pet." "But I do." "You can't take me on. I like my woman tied up. Ball-gagged. Blindfolded. Plug up their asses. Pussy spread open for me to fuck it however I want. If I take the gag off, it's to fuck their mouths." Jack does an upstanding job avoiding all things Elle, until the day where Elle lands in life threatening trouble and Jack is determined to protect her at all costs. He'll do his job and walk away afterwards, but Elle is determined to make him lose all reason and patience in the process. You think I can't even look at you? I want you so fucking badly I can't even breathe." "Well, I hope your ninja training includes holding your breath for long periods. Or let me ask at the counter, they might have an iron lung somewhere. Either way you said your dick is not in charge here, so order it back to its cave and don't waste my time." I gobbled up this book with a pervy sort of glee I haven't felt in a long while. I loved these two together. Nothing beats a good hate/love scenario for me, and boy do these two serve that up on a silver platter. You can't help but love Elle even if she lands herself in scenarios where you'll want to throttle her. Jack is everything I love in an alpha; broody, slightly crass, protective, and a dirty dirty man in bed. The sexual chemistry between them was so hot, it practically crackled on the pages. I appreciated the slow burn approach the author took and not throwing them into bed together right away. I love a good sexual tension and this book certainly had that. But beyond the super sexy romance and fantastic characters, Jacked Up had a great plot that served to tie everything together flawlessly. The suspense was the perfect touch. It wasn't so intense that it took away from the romance, but it was the perfect spark to spice things up even further. Jacked Up was the perfect combination of sizzling hot erotica, romance, and story. If you haven't read anything by this author yet, you are seriously missing out. On a side note here's a particular secondary character that I'm beyond thrilled will be getting a book because I was salivating for his story the entire time.

But Jack is a guy that doesn’t want to get tied, and neither is Elle. But can they ever go back after crossing that line? I’ve been waiting for this book pretty much from the moment I’ve read the first book of the series, a few years ago, and I was introduced to Jack and Ellie and their banter. I’ve got to say that no, it’s not my favorite book in the series, but it’s exactly the story I imagined (and hoped) for them. It’s packed with action, sexy, sweet and their relationship makes it a hilarious reading. I’ve said before that this series and seriously underrated; these books are sexy, fun and they have an amazing love story behind. If you haven’t started this series yet, I strongly advise you to do it. Rating: 4 Stars. Characters Development: Jack was the asshole anti-hero you hate to love. He was a little hard headed in the beginning, but with the progress of the story he really grows up and you end up falling in love with him. He’s not your traditional sweet and kind hero, but he’s definitely an alpha and you’ll love it. Elle is a nice girl, and she’ll definitely make you laugh, but she’s slightly immature and her mind is everywhere, which annoyed me at several moments, but overall, she was a nice heroine.

I am a huge fan of Elle Aycart’s Bowen Brothers Series, each book while hard to put down has also been completely different from its predecessor. The series has progressed in general as each brother has found and fell in love with his woman, but each Bowen has been deliciously different with their own personality traits, quirks and occasional piercings! "I'm in charge here. And I'm never proper." Elle is related to the Bowen’s by marriage, Jack by friendship. Both have featured in the previous books quite a bit, but Jack has been elusive in his appearances, while Elle has done her level best to rile him up. So basically the two most polar opposite personalities that you could ever expect to meet. Introvert to the extrovert, one a people-pleaser the other a please them-selfer. "I prefer my women silent." I think one thing that you can determine straight off the bat with these two is that it is not going to be an easy ride. Both are difficult yet likeable characters, and being completely opposite from each other on pretty much everything really does bring about a nice amount of friction to the slow burn of attraction that builds between them. "I like my women tied up. Ball-gagged. Blindfolded. Plug in their asses. Pussy spread open for me to fuck it however I want. If I take the gag off, it’s to fuck their mouths." One thing I loved (and I wasn’t sure I would) is that they didn’t jump into bed with each other immediately. It wouldn’t have worked in conjunction with the storyline and extreme circumstances that the author has playing out around them, and considering they have been circling each other for quite a while now, it was great reading how Elle, gradually broke down a lot of Jack’s walls during the time they were together. With her around, everything was a mess – which he hated – but without her nothing felt right. We delve into the realms of romantic suspense with Jacked Up, and the author really stepped up to the plate with this change in story direction from the previous books, it wasn’t all about Jack and Elle, and there is a huge amount playing out around the building of their connection to each other. "Walking away from each other is probably the smartest thing to do. But I don’t want to." The hunter/protector eventually becomes the hunted. Elle gave me all that I wanted with this book, a lot of which I didn’t even know I needed, this couple, and the series as a whole are still absolutely stellar. Prepare yourself for a few surprises as you get to know Jack and Elle on a deeper level, appearances are certainly deceiving when it comes to this couple. You get the usual banter between the guys with James, Cole and Max playing their own parts in the story as the book progesses. I laughed, cried a couple of times and as usual got a little 'damp' at the sexy-times between them. Ladies (and men of course) you are in for such a treat with Jacked Up!

    I have waited for Jack and Elle's story like forever and I had the impression that Jack would be that possessive, madly in love type of hero...no such luck! It pains me to say, but I was disappointed in Jack...he was not as crazy in love with Elly as I originally thought him to be from the previous books...at times it felt like he just wanted sex from Elle and he had no romantic feelings towards her..it did not felt like he was madly in love with her..."lust" yes but not love....When Elly declar I have waited for Jack and Elle's story like forever and I had the impression that Jack would be that possessive, madly in love type of hero...no such luck!

Is that what you want to hear?” He didn’t blink while delivering the blow. His voice didn’t waver, not even once. Not even a little.... That was just cold and emotionless and it did not sound like a guy madly in love with this woman...I just felt he lacked that romantic feeling which was really disappointing. What surprised me was Elly...I thought her to be a bit a party girl, which is nothing wrong itself, however, I was pleasantly surprised that she was more responsible and more reserved when it comes to the opposite sex...she was really a great heroine, she was not a pushover and stood her mind and I wish Jack would act with more love than just lust towards her....I would be then convinced that yes this man really loves her and would move the sun for her...I just did not get those vibes from him. But kudos to the author for keeping the Bowen family in every book...they are great bunch of characters that brings a lot of funny banters giving some light to the story.

I swear this man is a no nonsense, don't mess with me type, and is all about keeping Elle- the object of his affections and ironically, the BIGGEST pain in his arse-- from harm. Jack and Elle's chemistry is what I'd describe as "pent-up frustration," in which, I refer to the dance they do around each other when they're clearly drawn to one another. Jack is pretty much this uptight, scarred character who lets no one in and Elle is this free spirited and feisty spirit. They bring a lot out of each other, and we see Jack's armor cracking and Elle growing tremendously throughout, which is highlighted with a bunch of bickering and hot, hot sex!! I've been waiting for Jack's story to be told and I felt that Elle Aycart, *hmmm, did she name the female protagonist after herself?! hehe*, did him justice! I loved him with Tate's big sis!! Definitely, a riot that one that gave Jack a run for his money and attracted a hell lot of trouble!! Good thing though that Jack has a knack for undercover, mercenary work!! That man, is certainly one that you want fighting in your corner! For those who think this is the end of the Bowen series, just wait, because the ending will turn your head upside down!! Sure, baffled me and made me laugh at the same time! Love this series!!

    "Every evil has its flip side." I'm a huge fan of this author and her Bowen Boys. Every book is better than the last and I can't get enough of these characters. The men are strong alpha males with filthy mouthes and the women are independent and sassy. When they get together the chemistry is explosive and the sexy time is so good you'll be glad you have a kindle so the pages don't get dog-eared and fall out of the book. Elle is my hero. No, I'm not confused. I know, it's Jack that's in the busines "Every evil has its flip side." I'm a huge fan of this author and her Bowen Boys.

No, I'm not confused. I know, it's Jack that's in the business of security and protection. But it's Elle that steals the show with her smart mouth and endless shenanigans. She kept me entertained throughout with her sarcasm and intuition. She never backed down or stopped being herself. She's incredible and I'd love to know her in the 'real world'. Is it just coincidence that she shares a name with the author? Jack is big, bossy, and badass. He is intense and intimidating. He noticed Elle years ago. He's always noticing Elle, he can't help himself. But he doesn't do anything about it. He knows he's in the wrong business to be able to share his life with someone. He has too many secrets. Being around him is dangerous, so he must stay away. But still...he watches. He wants. He waits. For what he doesn't know, but when he finds it he'll know, right? The Bowen boys are as fun and crazy as ever. They are a close family that spends time together and meddles in each other's lives. Elle is the sister-in-law of James. Her sister's marriage made her one of them, and there's no getting away from their love and interference in her life. Not that she would want to. At least not all the time. Only when she wants to get away with something she doesn't think they will approve of. She really didn't mean to bring trouble to their doorstep, but she can't seem to help it. Trouble follows her. And so does Borg.

    Jacked Up was the fourth book in Elle Aycart’s Bowen Boys series. The Bowen brothers have all found their forever love but Jacked Up featured James’ best friend, Jack, and Tate’s sister, Elle, from book one, More Than Meets the Ink. Elle was gorgeous, quirky, fun, snarky, independent, creative and a little crazy. Her antics had landed her in trouble on many occasions but her charm and resourcefulness had gotten her out just as quickly. Well with everyone except Jack.

The Bowen brothers have all found their forever love but Jacked Up featured James’ best friend, Jack, and Tate’s sister, Elle, from book one, More Than Meets the Ink. Elle was gorgeous, quirky, fun, snarky, independent, creative and a little crazy. Her antics had landed her in trouble on many occasions but her charm and resourcefulness had gotten her out just as quickly. Well with everyone except Jack. Jack was an undercover agent, with whom we weren’t actually sure, but he had the big grouchy, brooding, reclusive, protective vibe down pat. Elle had a huge heart and was up to her normal shenanigans when she was at the wrong place at the wrong time, which gave her knowledge of a murder. Jack was called in to “shake down” a witness for information and instead was shocked to see Elle. He immediately went into protection mode and the drama began. Albeit humorous drama, but drama none the less. Jacked Up was well written and fun with only a few editing errors. It was written in a multiple POV; Jack, Elle and members of the drug cartel that were after Elle. I loved adding in a drug cartel story to keep it suspenseful but at times it was confusing. Even at the end, I’m still confused on a few items. But it was fairly fast paced, full of mystery and intrigue, and a boat load of sex. Although the Bowen brothers are all paired off, the series will continue. No spoilers here, but the next story is Hard Limits with an unexpected hero and I can’t wait to see how Aycart will pull it off. Additionally, we had a teaser on a long lost adopted sister. It appears we’ll see more from her as well. And don’t forget Jack’s sister, Ronnie, please let us see her story too. Until then....

    I absolutely love this series - the Bowen brothers are alpha sexy, so it makes sense that their friends would be as well, and Jack, or as Elle likes to call him "Borg," is even more stubborn and dominant than the Bowens, which may seem like a recipe for disaster given the fact that Elle is an independent and feisty woman who can give Jack a run for his money in all aspects of his life, but she actually is his perfect match, and when her life is in danger, Jack and Elle realize that their idea of I absolutely love this series - the Bowen brothers are alpha sexy, so it makes sense that their friends would be as well, and Jack, or as Elle likes to call him "Borg," is even more stubborn and dominant than the Bowens, which may seem like a recipe for disaster given the fact that Elle is an independent and feisty woman who can give Jack a run for his money in all aspects of his life, but she actually is his perfect match, and when her life is in danger, Jack and Elle realize that their idea of what’s "perfect" for them is anything but. I’ve always only seen Elle as Tate’s sassy sister; a woman who has a smart ass comment for everything and is a worldwind of crazy, chaos, and fun. But in Jacked Up, readers see beyond Elle’s party girl facade and understand the pain and guilt she feels for being the girl who always ran away from responsibility. There’s a lot more to Elle than what she allows those around her to see, and when she has no other choice but to allow Jack Copeland to protect her, he strips away her barriers and sees the grieving woman she is and he can’t help but give into the feelings he’s always had for her but never felt safe to act on due to his job, her attitude, and his perception on what he wants in a woman. Jack definitely comes off as a brash asshole who seems to always be in a bad mood but given the type of work he does, it makes sense that assimilating back into “normal” life would be trying and given the fact that Jack is used to calling the shots and intimidating those around him for Elle to not back down from him and to piss him off as much as turn him on, his attitude towards her is realistic. Jack and Elle’s relationship is one that has a bevy of sexual tension, power struggles and unending torment, and while most people would find this type of connection unhealthy, it seems to work for them because their banter and arguments make them that much hotter for each other and turns into a connection that may not be anything they would have thought they wanted but it’s exactly what keeps them coming back to one another for more. Elle Aycart is an amazing writer who knows exactly what her readers want, and she gives it all to them in a wonderfully crafted, steamy, and suspenseful read. A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Of course not,” she said rolling her eyes. “I was rescuing myself. What did you think, that I would be here lying around and waiting for someone to do it? You okay? Did I hurt you?” He cursed. He was soaking wet too. “Sorry for frying you. On the plus side, you won’t need to get a perm, ever.” She wasn’t making a lick of sense. “What?” “Kidding. What are you doing here?” “What am I doing here? I came to get you.” Her look of disbelief said it all. “You thought I wouldn’t?”

And yet there is something about her that will not leave Jack alone and in his darkest hours, where he should be focused on his job it is Elle that brings light … She is never giving up on making him feel .. showing him the sparks of life he seems to be missing. Their witty banter carries the story. He never acknowledges what it really means to him that she is never giving up but when push comes shove he is there for her. Still the final questions are not only if the sparks flying between those two great characters are enough to create a fire. But also if they will survive the trouble that is following them…

He's the rough, growly alpha who finds his love interest to be a real big pain in the rear yet completely irresistible. I ADORED watching him succumb to quirky, hilarious charms. And Elle Aycart is a carefree fun loving girl who loves nothing more than to tease and torture Jack. The two of them truly are just plain fun. Aycart's writing in the third person flows effortlessly. I felt immersed in the story and read it quite fast enjoying the pace and structure. Since I haven't read the entire series I can definitely say Jacked Up reads sweetly as a perfect standalone story. I'd be happy to read these two characters in many more stories.

Elle is snarky, gorgeous, and always on the go. She works hard, and plays harder. Her other mission in life is to bother those that bother her. She loves to put a little chink in Jack’s very structured life. So when Elle finds herself in a bit of trouble, Jack is around to help her out. But that means now he is her new shadow, wherever she goes he will go to. Neither one are sure they will not kill the other one, but the deal with it. Not to mention the attraction between the two. This was such a fun book to read. I LOVED the bantering between Jack and Elle. I found myself laughing out loud several time while reading. Not to mention the super steamy seams will melt your pages.

    Not fan of this one. I didn't read the previous books in this series and you really need to. I felt like I was missing a lot. But I wasn't that crazy about Jack at all and Elle was just childish. I didn't feel like there was banter. It was mostly Elle antagonizing him when he was just trying to save her life and bending over backwards to make her happy. I was just not impressed with her at all. And it was just all about sex for them. I wasn't feeling anything deeper for way too long. Not fan of this one.

    I'm full of contradictions because if I can't have a hero who knows what he wants and doesn't let go of his heroine, I want an H who's grumpy and stubborn and it comes back to bite him in the ass later on.
