❤❤ 3 stars for JACKED by Tina Reber ❤❤

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.

I had a bit of a hard time with this book, maybe not even the book but the lead character Erin. She had some major insecurities and trust problems, all which I did understand, but it seemed like to me over and over Adam was having to reassure her. She was so quick to run and leave, it just got old really quickly. I can understand a few times, but not through the majority of the story. 

I did like that both our characters had such a demanding job, one which they ultimately bonded over and it made them closer due to the secrecy of it. I also really liked all the drama involved in the book, and how their jobs are tied into the storyline and his case. I just didn't like that behind all that drama was the underlying issues with her trusting him. Her trusting in her relationship. Her trusting that he really wanted to be with her. Her trusting that all those other bozos she had been with and the crap they spewed was bullcrap. 

I did like the book, and I love Tina's writing style. I just felt like her insecurities were overdone, overplayed. I love how Tina doesn't leave any strings behind,and everything is tied together, how you aren't left with any questions. HOw you get a full story. Some of the drama was a little obvious as to who was behind the stuff going on, but still it was good.

I gave this book 3 stars
