Jacked Up by Elle Aycart


Since James Bowen married Elle Cooper’s sister, tall dark and handsome Jack Copeland has become a permanent fixture in Elle’s life. A silent, rather annoying fixture, with his arrogant aloofness and my-way-or-the-highway attitude rubbing her the wrong way. So she does what any self-respecting woman would: aggravate the wits out of him.

Party girl Elle Cooper is everything covert operative Jack Copeland doesn’t want in a woman. Outspoken, sassy. A smartass. Too bad when he closes his eyes, all his mind conjures up is her. To everyone else, he comes off as intimidating and unapproachable. Everyone except Elle. So he does what any self-respecting man would: stay the hell away from her. But when Elle gets herself in deep trouble, all of Jack’s protective instincts kick in, and keeping his distance is no longer an option.

Elle’s already complicated life takes a downturn, and she’s given two choices: go to jail or stick with Jack.

With Jack and Elle in such close proximity, sparks are flying all over the damn place and it’s only a matter of time before they ignite. The only question is, who will kill Elle first? The vicious drug cartel hunting her or Jack?

This book really worked for me – part of a series, but actually a good story all on its own. We read about previous characters and they are part of the story, but Jack and Elle are quite enough to fill a book all by themselves!

This has a good plot – with some tension, some drama, and plenty of action. Add in a fabulous romance in the antithesis of romance kind of way, and the story rises to a really, really good read. It is hot, it is funny, and then by turns it is sad, and it is scary. Ms. Aycart has mixed it up and brought two pretty intense and different people together in just the right mix. Is it rather crazy? Oh yes, but that is just fine as far as I am concerned. I read to be entertained, and this achieved that brilliantly.

This series works for me – this book possibly most of all – straight into the 'top series that need rereading' list do the Bowen Boys find their way – and thanks to two Bowen friends as it happens!

This is the first book in the series that I’ve read and I LOVED it! There was a bit of confusion in the first chapter, I felt like maybe it was picking up from something that had happened in the previous book, but other than that, this is fine as a standalone.

Elle Cooper’s sister married James Bowen and James’s best friend, Jack Copeland, has become a part of Elle’s life forever. Jack and Elle are Godparents together, and though Jack does his best to avoid Elle, he can’t help his attraction to her. Elle leads an absolute crazy busy life and when she trades places with a friend at work and becomes witness to a crime, she becomes a target and Jack makes it his mission to protect her. Jack finds Elle to be the most annoying woman on the planet, but at the same time the most attractive. Though Elle fights him tooth and nail, Jack is determined to keep her safe and once they’re in close quarters together for a while, things heat up and the only way to dispense the tension is to have a no-strings-attached type relationship…but then feelings become involved and things get messy.

I absolutely loved Elle, she might be one of my favorite heroines in a book in a long time. She’s hilarious, has the best personality, and is just witty enough to keep Jack on his toes. This is a great read and I look forward to more from this series!

I LOVED this book. I haven't read any other books in the series, so when I started reading I was a little confused. This story takes you on a ride and I'm so happy I stayed with it. This read has everything you need in a good story! It offers a great plot filled with action, drama, humor, romance, you name it. I would absolutely read more from this author and I look forward to reading more from the Bowen Boys!

After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to  flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do  when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff.

While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.
