Synopsis: We all have skeletons in our closets. 

Doctor Erin Novak was only sixteen when she was accused of a crime she didn't commit. Since that moment, she has made it her life goal to pursue emergency medicine, pouring her heart and soul into assuring another innocent life isn’t lost to the hands of the wicked.

We all have secrets we've never shared. 

Detective Adam Trent has lost control of everything, starting with losing his partner to a punk with a gun and then everything else to the crushing guilt. Now a member of the elite Auto Theft Task Force in Philadelphia, it's his job to be one step ahead of the criminals stealing expensive cars in the city. Too bad the television cameras keep getting in the way of his investigation.

We all have pasts that we can never escape. 

A stolen car, a tragic chase, and a traffic stop crosses the fates of these two, tying them together in ways that are unimaginable. As their love and trust grows, so do the enemies that threaten their survival, testing the strength of their commitment. Can true love endure half-truths, past pains, and secrets never meant to be shared?

Some things are just out of our control. 

Love Unscripted spin-off featuring Kyle Trent's older brother, Adam. 

What I Thought:

My love affair with Tina Reber's novels began with Love Unscripted in 2012. It doesn't show any sign of abating with Jacked. Instead, I have a feeling it will only continue to grow with time. Jacked was somewhat of a surprise. I was a little worried about how I was going to handle such a long book, but it turned out I should've been worried about how to find the words to describe how the good book was again. 

The book started off on a high note and maintained a high octane pace through out. There were no slow spots. I was hooked all the way through. My heart broke at how I met Erin. It broke for her and her family. The circumstances were devastating. I really liked Erin. She was really dedicated to her career. It was everything to her besides her family. I completely understood and could relate to her insecurities when it came to relationships. I wanted to lay the smackdown on her ex and his new girlfriend. The mind games they played ticked me off. Detective Adam Trent was amazing. I loved him. He was hot, honorable, and dedicated to his job and Erin. 

They had some wonderful chemistry. They were hot and heavy, but the problems they faced were real. It was good to see how they handled the problems that came their way. It was truly give and take and a learning experience. I was a little worried about the Shibari, I thought it might be overtake the story, however, it very tastefully enhanced it instead. There were some things I wish had been answered. I would've loved to know what direction Erin decided to take her career. I also would've liked to know if Adam's ex was responsible for the damage done to Erin's car and some other things. However, knowing that Jason, Adam's brother is going to get his own book, means that I might get the answers to my questions. I know I'll get to see them again, so I'm happy about that.

Tina Reber has written a book that's highly entertaining and that will surprise you. There are many twists that I didn't see coming. And there were moments when I had tears streaming down my face and moments when my heart was in my throat. My adrenaline was elevated and it took me some time to come down from the high I experienced while reading the book. I'm really eager for Jason Trent's book. I'm eager for anything Tina writes. If you've been waiting to read this book, don't. It's worth it.
