Overview

All Jacked Up by Penny McCall

When brains meets brawn, the bad guys don't stand a chance.



FBI agent Jack Mitchell's arrogance and take-charge attitude usually garner him the best assignments in the field-and the most compliant assets.



But Aubrey Sullivan, a brilliant librarian with a photographic memory, is no ordinary asset...without realizing it, she's managed to piss off the biggest mobster in North America. And somewhere in her picture-perfect memory is a secret that many would kill to keep quiet...



But since Jack barged into her life, librarian Aubrey Sullivan has been abducted at gunpoint, taken on a death-defying car chase, and kissed to within an inch of madness-and she's starting to think it may be smarter to ditch Mr. Sexy FBI.



Jack has never met a more infuriating (or alluring) asset in the field. If she would just do what he says, they may have a chance of getting out of this mess alive.



If only they could keep their hands off each other long enough to make a getaway!!



"McCall knows how to deliver!" - New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch



"Snappy dialogue, nonstop action, and sexy writing. A terrific new voice in romantic suspense!" -New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster

About the Author

Penny McCall was born and raised in southeastern Michigan, the seventh of nine children, whose claim to fame was reading five books a week in grade school. Needless to say, her obsession with the written word only grew from there despite a short, and misguided, foray into the world of computer science (the "sensible" job path).

After earning her associates degree, she enrolled at the University of Michigan, and finally figured out that the reason she got those puzzled looks from the other computer programmers was because she wasn't really one of them. She changed her major to History and English and then came detour number two, also known as marriage and childbirth. A son was followed by a daughter in 14 months, and then another son five years later.

At home, with no job and no night school for the first time in her life, she filled the kids' nap times and her evening hours with crafts; ceramics, macram', stained glass and especially crocheting, for which she sold two original patterns for afghans. Ultimately, of course, those other creative pastimes didn't satisfy the need to write ' or to get those voices in her head to quiet down.

With the help and support of one of her sisters, she began to write and write and write and write and finally sold her first novel in 1997 (as Penny McCusker.) Four more followed, until that line closed down in 2001, and after a little hiatus and yet another change of direction she began to write humor, if only to satisfy her inner smart aleck. Berkley bought her first story about a sarcastic FBI agent and a librarian with a photographic memory (All Jacked Up), and she's been happily writing for them ever since.

She still lives in Michigan, with her husband, three children and two dogs whose life of leisure she envies but would never be able to pull off. She works as an accountant by day, which feeds the side of her brain that craves order and normalcy. The rest of her time is devoted to writing whatever pops into the creative (and questionably sane) side of her brain. Her children and husband have come to accept this strange preoccupation she has with imaginary people. The dogs don't worry about it, as long as they're fed occasionally and allowed to nap on whatever piece of furniture strikes their fancy.

I read anywhere from 4-6 books a month I this is the first book I tore up and threw in the trash. Very frustrating and annoying, I wanted to hire a hitman to kill Aubrey myself. I will never read another Penny McCall book again

I would have given a zero rating for the characters but I really liked Jack which is part of the problem with this book. If you like Jack you are going to detest Aubrey and she is exactly why I didn't give this book 5 stars. I loathe and despise stupid main characters and Aubrey passed stupid by the third chapter and passed into the annals of most annoying, brainless twit ever. I really liked this authors other books but this a skip or use as fuel for a cold morning

I truly enjoyed reading this book. Aubrey was a very hardheaded and stubborn woman that for most of the story Jack had to fight with. But I have to say it made the story interesting to read. Most of the time I was saying 'What is this crazy woman doing?' It would have you laughing at her stubborn side but truly feeling for her.

I literally laughed out loud while I read this book. Although, I normally prefer a little more romance in my romantic suspense, the banter between Aubrey and Jack was priceless. In addition to the chemistry between the two the action was non-stop. Good job. I'm looking forward to Ms. McCall's next release.

The big stud entered the Library of Congress with his Glock out. He informs bookworm Aubrey with a B Sullivan to move it. She argues with him until bullets fly. He pushes her down to the floor and jumps on her to keep her safe only to have her argue even more until FBI Agent Jack Mitchell says he ought to leave her with the bad guys so her mouth will kill them. To keep her safe Jack has abducted her, but he concludes she must be a wacko as her reactions are all wrong too logical and calm as she insists he kidnapped kidnapping her and he claims to have taken a bullet to save her life. --- As she provides first aid to his wound, Jack explains that she has information on Pablo ¿the Butcher¿ Corona, cocaine king of the hemisphere. Aubrey says she is in protective custody, but Jack says no as he is being set up inside the agency to take the fall as his peers believe he is a mole working for Corona they want him dead just like the thugs want her dead. To survive, she must recall what she knows so they can go public making her no longer a target and proving his innocence. However, as he admires her courage, he realizes one of childhood¿s enduring lessons is no one messes with the librarian even a psychopathic killer will learn this life tenet. --- ALL JACKED UP is an amusing romantic suspense thriller starring a delightful pairing of two souls who are resourceful, do not understand mortality, and leave defeated bad guys all over the place. The chats between the Fed and the Librarian are humorous as she adapts to any scenario with aplomb. While Aubrey uses self-deprecating wit or tearing Jack¿s hide, fans of lighthearted romps will appreciate their fun bantering while battling to elude the Feds and to keep the Butcher from dining on either of them. --- Harriet Klausner
