Full Speed ($4.99 edition) (Janet Evanovich's Full Series)
Full Speed - $4.99 edition - Janet Evanovich's Full Series Author:Janet Evanovich, Charlotte Hughes 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 char... more »acters, 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« less
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.
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.
