An unexpected inheritance that gives him a share of an eastern Washington resort lodge couldn't have come at a better time for J.D. Carver. He's fed up with his life in Seattle and heads for Star Lake Lodge expecting to be met with hostility from the other owners. What he finds is the warm and welcoming Lawrence clan. J.D. takes one look at beautiful Drucilla Lawrence and immediately wants her, while Dru says hello to the handsome carpenter and begins to hyperventilate.
Neither of them are pleased by their instant attraction, for J.D.'s childhood spent in foster homes has taught him not to trust anyone, and Dru has purposely closed her heart to romance following an involvement that left her alone and pregnant. But J.D. is determined to claim his inheritance, and that decision compels him to remain at the Lodge, thus enmeshing himself in the Lawrences' daily life, especially Dru's. When unfinished business from his life in Seattle appears to threaten both him and the Lawrences, J.D. has to think fast before someone is killed. But could the threat to Dru's and J.D.'s hearts be even greater than the threat to their lives?
Susan Andersen doesn't miss a beat in this refreshingly down-to-earth take on a man and woman hit with lust and love at first sight. City-bred and street-smart, J.D.'s character is every bit as on target as Dru's good-girl psyche, while the secondary characters are equally fascinating and well developed. All Shook Up is a perfect balance of romance, humor, and suspense. Don't miss this one.--Lois Faye Dyer
I enjoyed the story - but it was a bit too predictable for me.
She's taken a disparate set of characters - "bad" city boy, "good" country girl - and brought them together in such a way that readers can see their similarities.
This is a good book to read if you like the lighter side of romance, fun, romantic, nice storyline.
This is heartwarming story. I usually like little more steam but the characters and story win out. I wish I could have met them and been part of the family. Read morePublished 2 months ago by LilaPenny

This book does not deserve half a star! The plot line, the characters, the dialogs are cheap, cheesy and completely unbelievable! Read morePublished on January 11, 2011 by vtx_chic
All Shook Up isn't quite as fun as Baby, I'm Yours - but I still gobbled it up in one sitting. The human emotions here are a bit weightier (or rather they're dealt with more... Read morePublished on February 11, 2009 by Gialdini
An all around enjoyable contemporary romance. It's not the most sophisticated or complicated of stories, but it's a great light-reader. Read morePublished on June 15, 2007 by JJN-1313
I really enjoyed this book and it could not have come at a better time. Every book I ended up reading lately seemed to be getting worse and worse. Not so with this hot one. Read morePublished on November 16, 2006 by JJC
