Review: Jacked Up by Erin McCarthy

Title: Jacked Up (Fast Track #6)
Author: Erin McCarthy
Date Published: 6/5/12

She’s holding tight. He’s hanging loose.

Eve Monroe is a stock-car PR pro who puts her career first—until an on-track wardrobe malfunction reveals more than the sexy smile of her race-car brother’s jack-man, Nolan Ford. The video’s become an internet sensation, and it’s Eve’s job to calm the sponsors and put a spin on the unexpected exposure. It may be purely a public relations job, but now that Eve’s seen what’s under Nolan’s crew suit, it’s gotten a little personal—and after a few dates she has Nolan pretty revved up. If only she’d learn to relax and enjoy it…

And they both have the same drive.

Nolan’s sure that the spontaneous birthday bash he’s throwing for Eve in Las Vegas should loosen her up. It does more than that. Somewhere between cocktails and a smoking-hot motel-room derby, Eve and Nolan wake up hitched, thanks to a post-sex-high detour to a Vegas chapel. A hangover marriage to a virtual stranger isn’t good for anyone’s image, so Eve plans to play the happy wife long enough to satisfy the press, and then quietly part ways. Now all she has to do is convince her new personal jack-man. But Nolan has plans of his own…

My Rating:

My Review:
Unlikely couple alert! Erin McCarthy changes things up a bit in the newest addition to the Fast Track Series. This is the first time we have a main character that is not a race car driver. For this book we have Eve (sister and PR Rep to the Monroe brothers) not exactly looking for, but finding love. 

Eve has been around racing her whole life. She even held titles of her own in her youth. Unfortunately even though it was what she loved doing, her father had other plans for her. She is in PR but does not exactly enjoy what she is doing. Jack-Man for her brothers pit crew's latest incident on national television is just a recent reason why. 

I loved that Eve was hard as nails yet something about Nolan just softened her up in the best possible way. She didn't even realize what was happening half of the time. Nolan was a man on a mission. He saw what he wanted and went for it. 

Their relationship seemed to develop a little slower than most in these novels. I'm just a huge fan of this series. Not as much of this story was about actual racing, which is what I am used to. I missed having a race car driver, but Nolan definitely was one hot guy who held up his end of the story.
