"Besides the extra steamy love scenes, ALL JACKED UP is filled with snappy dialogue and lots of tenderness and emotion. This was definitely a book to read through in one night, because it was just too good to put down."
"The characters of Keely and Jack are rich and nicely developed, the plot fast moving, the sex blistering hot...I can safely say that All Jacked Up is now my new favorite in a series filled with keeper books..."

"This is one sexually explosive adventure you don't want to miss...Jack and Keely's story is another great addition to this series and one that I will continue to re-read as more of the Rough Riders books are released..."
--The Romance Studio
"I was thoroughly entertained by their verbal sparring and witty banter. They're a well matched pair, with electric chemistry and as much as they try to fight against it, by professing to hate each other, it's not long before "hate" turns into passion in this wonderful story..."
--Fallen Angels Reviews
"Ahhh....Another winner penned by Lorelei James...Jack and Keely are in for a wild ride trying to convince their families and friends that they love each other... This was another great book that you should definitely pick up!"
--Two Lips Reviews
"The sex sizzled and burnt up the sheets, but it was the rest of the story that brought it all together and made this such a compelling story to read. Ms James has definitely hit another home run with this book..."
--Whipped Cream Reviews, Book of the Week

Jack, who Keely calls GQ for his buttoned up, always in a suit handsome self, is more than he reveals to his business partners. Like many businessmen with tunnel vision focused on what they identify as success, he hasn't opened his eyes to see more than work since his partnership and engagement disintegrated a few years earlier.
Keely, aka Cowgirl, is much more than the fun-loving, wild child of her teen years. Keely needs Jack's help with the renovation of the historical building and refit to become her new therapy and medical clinic. She dosesn't really like him but she needs him. Fortunately for her, Jack needs her as well, to portray to the world that he is a well-balanced, family man but oh she drives him crazy! This can never work! You can count on this author to deliver an HEA that is as sexy as you can tolerate without steam coming from your book or reading device.
I am a sucker for the “brother best friend” story. I also love a good enemies to lovers tale. This story told BOTH! It was hot, funny and a bit emotional. Exactly what I love and have come to expect from Lorelei James’ work.
Jack decides he needs something from Keely too. What transpires is a great hate-turned-to-love story! When I recently re-read this book I guess I came at it from a different perspective than in my previous reads because I feel in love with Jack even more than I had in the past.
Keely grew up on a ranch in Wyoming. She wears cowboy clothes, spends time with her horse, drives a pick-up truck, drinks beer, and is in a dart throwing league. She is a physical therapist who recently bought a building. She wants to rehab it and open a medical center. Because it's a historic landmark, she is required to hire an architect specializing in restoration. Jack is the only one available in the area. She hates Jack.
Jack wants the job overseeing a large restoration project in Utah, but the owners have rigid morality issues. They won't hire a bachelor. When Keely asks him to oversee her project, he agrees only if she'll pretend to be his fiancé to help him get the Utah job. She reluctantly agrees. Now they have to act like they love each other and learn about each other.
I loved their banter as they were getting to know each other. For example when Keely is guessing what Jack's favorite movies are, she says "Jackass" and "The Jerk." She's a ranch girl and sees Jack as the metrosexual type. She calls him GQ. It was entertaining. I was pleased when the author used a good reason to separate them later instead of inaccurate assumptions (which are too frequently used). In general I'd say it's a pretty good story. The main purpose of course is sex, and those scenes are hot and frequent. They are explicit and include rear door activity. If that's what you're looking for, go for it.
If I might suggest: it would have been nice to see some revenge against Martine, she was despicable.
