Okay caper novel about a feisty lady reporter, a sleazy evangelist, an incompetent mobster, and an uber-rich, uber-sexy boyfriend. Entertaining but not memorable.

A continuation of the Max & Jamie story line. These aren't my favorite Evanovich stories, but I guess since I've started the series I want to finish it. There is typical humor (Jamie gets a dog Fleas) & a who dun it murder. Lots of chemistry still brewing up between Jamie & Max.

These "Full" books by Janet are cute - something fast and fun to read while you're waiting for the next Stephanie Plum to be released. When you're looking for some good giggles, these are the best!

What a sorry excuse for a book series-- though the first Max Holt book where he was a misguided genius as a teen in "Full House" was OK, this shows just how ridiculous writers can become to keep churning out books quickly. The book is full of lustful moments which don't add anything to the story. And Evanovich has created a totally laughable character in "Dave", a genius IT guy in Max's employ whose germ phobia just turned me off.
Though I love, love, love her Stephanie Plum series, Janet tried too hard to create another crime adventure series with wacky but lovable characters-- it just doesn't work in the "FULL" series.

#2 in the series. A thrilling story of mobsters, a two-million-dollar talking car, and the Max-and-Jamie duo hunting down the bad guys.

I'm hooked on the Stephanie Plum series, and this isn't nearly as good. Found a couple of things that just seemed impossible and were not explained. I won't be reading any more of this series. I couldn't feel any empathy for the characters.

Dear Reader,Welcome to the world of Jamie Swift and Max Holt! My good friend Charlotte Hughes and I have teamed up to create a series of books featuring these two characters and they've taken on a life of their own! These books are not set in the same world as my Stephanie Plum novels, but what they have in common is lovable, dysfunctional characters, villains you love to hate, and a cross-eyed way of looking at life. Jamie and Max have intense chemistry-even though they drive each other crazy. Max thinks Jamie is a magnet for trouble and Jamie thinks Max is the most annoyingly sexy, mysterious man she's ever met. She knows she should stay away from him. But boy, oh boy, do the sparks fly when they get together. Jamie is a newspaper owner from a small southern town. And in Full Speed, she's after the story of a lifetime. Max Holt is right in the middle of that story, and so Jamie tracks down the millionaire playboy, forcing him to take her on as partner. What follows is a story of a corrupt minister, a gang of mobsters on the loose, a hound dog called Fleas, a wise-cracking computer genius, and lots of love in the fast lane. Not to mention plenty of steamy action between Jamie and Max. So have fun with Full Speed. We're going to sign off now and get back to creating more romantic adventures between Jamie Swift and Max Holt. Enjoy and happy reading! Janet and Charlotte

It started out a little slow, but picked up speed as they went. Jamie and Max can't make up their minds about each other, but one thing is for certain they both want the big bad guy. And it turns out the Jamie has what it takes to get the Reverend's attentions, for private spiritual guidance. They are in it up to their eye balls. And because of the arguments and differences of opinion they are choosing to not share ALL the information with each other. This leads to the real bad guy catching our dynamic duo off guard!
