Billionaire CEO Cole Carrington knew the only way to check the seemingly downward spiral of his lingerie store was to go undercover. If it was being mismanaged he'd be able to get to the bottom of it. What he wasn't expecting was to run into Jillian Winters, the gorgeous woman he'd evicted months ago from the same location.
When Jillian Winters gets evicted from the building she rented, she's forced to shut down her five-star lingerie store. Unable to have the proper funds to relocate into an equally swank location in Downtown Denver, Jillian is certain her managing skills aren't what she believed them to be. Still sulking weeks later, Jillian's pesky sister helps her get a new job—same location,newlingerie store—owned by the handsome stranger who evicted her.
Unforeseen circumstances force Jillian into the management position where she realizes she'll have the chance to learn from her previous mistakes. But she's taken aback when a competitor offers Jillian part of her dream again—half owner of a lingerie store. Jillian must decide where she wants to be: working at her hot boss's upscale lingerie store and helping himsucceed. Or working toward her ultimate goal of being an owner again—even if that means taking a step down from the five-star norm she's used to.
Especially when she realizes that dealing with Cole Carrington on a day to day basis isn't as difficult as she first thought it might be.

Second installment in this series and I was head over heels for Jillian and Cole. There were a few instances that maybe one or the other needed a slap but this one was better than the first installation in the series. From chapter one on I was all over this one, I was behind Jillian Winters all the way. There was something pulling me toward Cole and his determination to stay away from Jillian and that their firs meeting was to be their last meeting until it wasn't. I felt a closer connection with Cole and Jillian than I did with the first couple of this series. I was more drawn to their circumstances. I was able to keep pace with their story and not feel lost, bereft, or that things began to drag on. I eagerly tapped the corner of each page awaiting for the next page to load and begin it all again. Each new chapter brought me closer to more information on the two characters.
It's a man's world in a woman's domain. All Shook Up is a tempting mixture of sensuality and sassy wit. Cole has a lot to learn and Jillian has no problem showing him how clueless he really is. Cole may know business, but Jillian knows lingerie and she has no qualms about putting that knowledge on full display. Bostock proves that smart and sexy go hand in hand in this enticing battle of hearts.
