Since James Bowen married Elle Cooper’s sister, tall dark and handsome Jack Copeland has become a permanent fixture in Elle’s life. A silent, rather annoying fixture, with his arrogant aloofness and my-way-or-the-highway attitude rubbing her the wrong way. So she does what any self-respecting woman would: aggravate the wits out of him for fun.

I say when we are done and we are not. Not by a long shot. You've been taunting me for months. Years, pet. Now that you got my undivided attention, you can't say you don't want it. You can't back down. I won't allow it. You've been asking for it. For me. This is what you get: me. I'll tie you down and fuck you so thoroughly you will be limp by the time I'm done with you.

I am a huge fan of Elle Aycart’s Bowen Brothers Series, each book while hard to put down has also been completely different from its predecessor.

The series has progressed in general as each brother has found and fell in love with his woman, but each Bowen has been deliciously different with their own personality traits, quirks and occasional piercings!

I have waited for Jack and Elle's story like forever and I had the impression that Jack would be that possessive, madly in love type of such luck!

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

Jacked Up? What an appropriate title. "Jack" was another scrumptious short-clipped, alpha dominate man oozing with sex appeal. I swear this man is a no nonsense, don't mess with me type, and is all about keeping Elle- the object of his affections and ironically, the BIGGEST pain in his arse-- from harm.

Jack and Elle's chemistry is what I'd describe as "pent-up frustration," in which, I refer to the dance they do a

"Every evil has its flip side."

I'm a huge fan of this author and her Bowen Boys. Every book is better than the last and I can't get enough of these characters. The men are strong alpha males with filthy mouthes and the women are independent and sassy. When they get together the chemistry is explosive and the sexy time is so good you'll be glad you have a kindle so the pages don't get dog-eared and fall out of the book.

Elle is my hero. No, I'm not confused. I know, it's Jack that's in the busines

Give it to me now, and nobody gets hurt

Jacked Up was the fourth book in Elle Aycart’s Bowen Boys series. The Bowen brothers have all found their forever love but Jacked Up featured James’ best friend, Jack, and Tate’s sister, Elle, from book one, More Than Meets the Ink.

Elle was gorgeous, quirky, fun, snarky, independent, creative and a little crazy. Her antics had landed her in trouble on many occasions but her charm and resourcefulness had gotten her out just as quickly. Well with everyone except Jack. Jack was an undercover agent,

DNF. This was the most annoying woman on the entire planet. If anyone needs a poster child for adult ADHD, Elle is your gal. I got to 50% but realized I 100% couldn't stand her and no way would I change my mind so I bugged out.

I absolutely love this series - the Bowen brothers are alpha sexy, so it makes sense that their friends would be as well, and Jack, or as Elle likes to call him "Borg," is even more stubborn and dominant than the Bowens, which may seem like a recipe for disaster given the fact that Elle is an independent and feisty woman who can give Jack a run for his money in all aspects of his life, but she actually is his perfect match, and when her life is in danger, Jack and Elle realize that their idea of ...more

Jack is a quiet man who wants a wife who will be devoted to him and have his babies. That is so not Elle!! Elle is this little firecracker that at any moment pop. So much chemistry and the drama are so there. The steamy scenes are of the chart!! Love it and I can't wait for the next book. And it will be a next book.

I needed something fast and fun. Irene recommended I read Jacked Up and I'm so happy she did.

Elle Aycart does fast and fun so well. She also does witty banter to perfection. And the sex was scorching hot. Jack and Elle light up the pages of this story with their undeniable chemistry and hilarious back and forth points of view. They fight hard and love harder even when they don't want to admit it. Jack Copeland is dead SEXY. He's the rough, growly alpha who fin

“Jacked Up by Elle Aycart is the 4th book in the “Bowen Boys” series – but it was my first by this author. It is easy readable as a standalone novel even if there are references to the other books.

The characters are developed just perfectly for each other. We have the secretive dark and interesting Jack – that seems far too serious for just the slightest bit of fun – Hence Elle’s “Endearment” for him when she calls him “Borg”

And we have Elle – the woman that is more butterfly and party girl tha

I liked Jack and Elle when they featured in the other books in this series but quite honestly, it has taken the author that long to get to their story that my memory of them was a bit hazy when I started reading this but I'm sure I don't remember Elle calling Jack 'Borg' or him calling Elle 'Pet'. Those two nicknames really grated on me while reading.

"She couldn’t deny Jack pushed all her buttons, getting her hot and bothered with just a look. The problem was, whenever she was around him she felt trapped between wanting to kiss him and wanting to beat the sh!t out of him.”

This is my first book by Elly Aycart, and it won’t be my last. I loved this book. It is an easy “one click.”

Let’s start with Jack. He is super Alpha male, super secretive, and oh so delicious. He has this job that keeps him in harm’s way, and seems to always be in a pissed

Oh my, Jack is my kind of Alpha hero and he was quite impressive! Unfortunately, Jack’s HEA had to be the most annoying heroine I’ve ever read. There’s nothing wrong with being a fun-loving party girl with a shit ton of sass, but sweet Lord she was so over the top. Elle was a “smart ass” and I was reminded of it so many times I wanted to scream. There’s smart ass and then there is TSTL. She was a heroine who was TSTL on too many occasions to count.

Bottom line, I really like the author’s writing

This is my first book by Elle Aycart and most definitely not my last. What an awesome, awesome book!
Although i have not read the first 3 books of this series, i felt like i did not miss anything. Borg and Pet were perfect for each other and the banter between them was outstanding.

I have been looking forward to getting Jack and Ellie’s story from we met them.

It is Ellie’s life mission to annoy the hell out of Jack and she succeeds in doing so. I loved her character, she was spunky, opinionated, fun and loveable.

Jack was a hard a$$, he has always been the dark broody character in all the books and I didn’t expect that to change. I loved Jack in the end.

Elle has a way of dragging me into each story with her loveable characters and good storylines, I have loved this

Not fan of this one. I didn't read the previous books in this series and you really need to. I felt like I was missing a lot. But I wasn't that crazy about Jack at all and Elle was just childish. I didn't feel like there was banter. It was mostly Elle antagonizing him when he was just trying to save her life and bending over backwards to make her happy. I was just not impressed with her at all. And it was just all about sex for them. I wasn't feeling anything deeper for way too long.

I did not read this series in order and I think that made for some confusion. I did love Else's personality . I would love to see more on Veronica as well . She's Jacks sister and seems like she is a lot like Elle. Jack was a little boring but I loved when Elle pushed his buttons. I will definitely be looking into reading the rest of this series .
