Overview

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 jackman 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.

And they both have the same drive.

It may be a public relations job, but now that Eve’s seen what’s under Nolan’s crew suit, it’s gotten personal. After a few dates she has Nolan pretty revved up. If only she’d learn to relax and enjoy it. Nolan’s sure that the spontaneous birthday bash he’s throwing for Eve in Las Vegas should loosen her up. Somewhere between cocktails and a smoking-hot motel-room derby, it does more than that. Now Eve’s wrestling with feelings she never expected, as everything about her personal jackman gets harder than she ever imagined.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
McCarthy should have stopped to ask for directions instead of driving straight ahead with her sixth entry in the Fast Track series (after Slow Ride). Her trademark humor and warmth are missing as two secondary series characters take their turn around the track. Eve Monroe is the PR manager for her two NASCAR-driving brothers, but bitterly regrets not pursuing the sport herself. After she scolds team jackman Nolan Ford for accidentally ripping his tracksuit and exposing his backside on national TV, she’s surprised when he pursues her romantically. She even warns him that she can be cranky and controlling. Despite her unlikable attitude (which the reader is to infer is some sort of defense mechanism), Nolan pursues Eve aggressively. He generously finds activities to bring Eve out of her shell and open her to the possibility that she can change her career and circumstances. Nolan is charming, but readers will be less willing to wait for Eve to get it together. (June)

## This book was awesome. It made me laugh and cry. Of course the whole series was fabulous. It took me a few chapters to warm up to the heroine, but then I found her more and more refreshing in her blunt honesty. And the hero, holy moly he's hot. Really hot! I absolutely loved it.

Jacked Up by Erin McCarthy is another winning drive through the world of racing. Eve Monroe is PR pro that lets nothing and no one get under her skin. That is until her brothers jackman Nolan Ford has a wardrobe malfunction for the whole nation to see on TV. This sends Eve into PR overdrive to calm sponsors and fans alike. But getting Nolan under control is easier said then done, especially when he gets her personal motor running. Nolan Ford can’t keep his mind off of Eve Monroe when she is trying to give him dressings down for his latest misshape. It wasn’t his faults his pants split as he was going over a wall, ok so it may have been his mistake to go commando that day but still. The fire coming off of Eve sparks a whole different kind of fire in Nolan. He has been attracted to Eve for ages and figures now is a fine time to act on that attraction. Nolan gets Eve to go out on a date and gets her to relax and enjoy life. Nolan decides a surprise birthday party in Los Vegas will further get Eve to losing up. Boy does it, one night of sizzling passion leads to more then either had bargained for when they went to Vegas. Once Nolan and Eve get back home they both have things to deal with before they can make this relationship work. Jacked Up is another exceptional story set within the race track. Nolan and Eve are delightful, their encounters are full of sass and sexiness that will have you laughing and sighing. It was an added treat to revisit past characters and see what they were doing now. Erin McCarthy’s stories are a must read for any romance reader.

I usually really like Erin McCarthy. I've read all her other series and started out reading this one too. I stopped a few stories in b/c I just lost interest, but noticed this one and thought I'd give it a try. It was GREAT. Loved the characters,the story was fun and light and well-written. I really have no desire to go back and read the stories I missed, but I will probably continue on from here should there be more in the series.

So I won this book on a giveaway and for that I'll write this review. Have in mind that this does NOT affect my opinion of the book. I've liked this series since I first stumble upon Elec. I like the chemistry between characters and the problems that evolve between them. I've being waiting to read this book since we got that small glimpse of it about Nolan and his behind. I mean what better way to catch ones attention than to mention a guys butt, right? So this book is about the infamous dragon lady, Eve Monroe. The man to tame her had to have really big balls, and a s*** load of experience dealing with overbearing women, and who better then hunky jackman Nolan Ford with his entourage of meddling sisters. I love how he sees Eve for more that what she shows and encourages her to go after what she really wants. Even at the risk of being jugged by others. But in the end she learned that what opinion mattered was her own and that of the man she loved and married(in a spur of the drunken moment decision). I always like a happy ending.

I really like the Fast Track series and this is one of my favorites.  Nolan Ford is a jackman on Evan Monroe's stock car racing team and has had a thing for Eve Monroe (Evan's sister) for years.  Eve is the PR person for both of her brothers, Evan and Elec Monroe so she is around the track a lot. Eve is such a grump that it is almost impossible to like her. This story lets us see why Eve is always so miserable to everyone and is almost compulsive about planning everything perfectly and doing her job well even though she hates it. She wanted to be a driver, but because she was a girl, her father said she couldn't drive so, instead, she went to college and became the PR rep for her brothers. Nolan is just what Eve needs in a man. He is calm and tries to get Eve to relax a bit too. That is really hard for Eve to do so Nolan has his work cut out for himself. The one thing that didn't feel right about this story was Nolan's constant interest and love for Eve.  Eve was quite the witch most of the time and everyone stayed clear of her but not Nolan.  It sure was not typical male behavior to stay calm and nice when Eve blew up. I loved the ending of this book and would recommend it.
