ARC Review: Jacked Up by Erin McCarthy

Jacked Up
by Erin McCarthy
(Fast Track # 6)

There is something about fast cars, being around the racetrack and even a little bit of grease that I just find irresistible, and there is no better series to fulfill that need than the Fast Track series.  With some light humor, romance, sexual tension and a good storyline, I usually find myself anxiously awaiting the next book.  And JACKED UP did not disappoint!

Eve Monroe is the sister of some of our favorite drivers!  She is also their manager and the one that keeps everyone in line.  So when she is faced with the PR nightmare of having one of Chase's crew members jump the wall, rip his pants, and while changing a tire have his ass and family jewels showing on national television because he didn't wear any underwear... well, there's not much she can do other than do some yelling.

She is tough and everyone sees her as a bit of a bitch, but in the end this is really not what she wanted to do or who she wanted to be.

Enter Nolan Ford.  OMG he is adorable, ass hanging in the wind and all!!!!  He is just a small town boy, you can tell he comes from a loving family, and truly loves his job.  And he has a crush on Eve.  Nothing, not their financial differences, or the fact that they technically work together, will keep him from getting to know her better.

I really liked the fact that Eve doesn't end up with a driver.  Nolan is perfect for her.  Even though she comes from racing royalty and grew up differently than him, he is willing to give her the best that he can and truly wants to make her happy.  When he helped her fix her car, or the whole Vegas thing.  Just adorable!

One thing I love about this series is that the stories are nothing alike.  Each is very unique, the issues they have to go through and their journey to their HEA, and this couple was certainly not the exception.

I see a lot of potential for new characters in this series developing from the Ford family (or would that be a spin-off?), could that be possible?  I can't wait to see who's next!  Because there is another one, right? Right?

lol awesome quote! I'm glad Eve didn't end up with a driver also :) I was wondering when Eve was going to get her own book since I liked her character (somewhat) in previous books :) Glad to see her story didn't disappoint! Thanks for the review!

While I don't car at all to watch NASCAR on TV this is a fabulous series.

I could see how the ripped pants may be a problem for the male viewers but with the right spin it could have women lining up to get in the gate. :)
