He water together and then I d get even luckier That s a fantasy True but I plan to make it a reality Not gonna happen It s inevitable I always thought we d eventually get together Nick said Well so did I but I imagined it would be in an interrogation room courtroom or your jail cell This is better I suppose but it was fun when I hit you with a bus Yeah and I enjoyed crashing into you with the ard car He moved close and An Alien Heat kissed her just below the ear Thinking about it gets me feeling romantic Listen mister there s no romance Okay he said no romance Just hot sweaty sex No Just a little No Aiss Maybe a The Alchemy of Culture: Intoxicants in Society kiss Needless to say this is a fun exciting fast paced story with a lot action suspense danger and a little bit of romance too Once again the plotting is tight the dialogue snappy smart witted and the characters continue to evolve as time moves on Yes this story was certainly worth the wait however with the heart racing set up for the next installment these fabulous authors had better be brainstorming and those word processors better be burning hot right now because I don tnow how long I can stand the suspense I love this series and highly recommend it to mystery suspense thriller fans romantic suspense fans will like this one too These stories are rated PG 13 so everyone should be able to enjoy them 45 stars Yikes I reuested The Scam on Netgalley because I had read the first three books in Evanovich s Stephanie Plum series and enjoyed them well enough to make it worth giving this one a try The Stephanie Plum books I read were completely light but sufficiently funny and likeable to fill the occasional need for a mindless read like the short lived satisfaction of a cheap chocolate bar But The Scam which is part of a new series Evanovitch is co authoring with Lee Goldberg didn t work for me at all and I don t think that it s because it s the fourth in a series of which I had not read the previous books The characters seemed trite and not particularly interesting or likeable and the story was choppy and all over the place I should have stopped reading well before the end but Based On The High Ratings on the high ratings this book and series I was hoping to reach a point where all would be redeemed or at least pick up a bit But all I reached was the conclusion that there s really no accounting for taste 2 stars rather than 1 because there s nothing actually offensive about The
Scam And I Am Overlooking The Cheap Shots At Canadiansand I am overlooking the cheap shots at Canadians I just didn t enjoy it Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read The Scam and I do mean that sincerely I ve taken many risks reuesting books outside of my usual reading patterns or comfort zone often to great success so the occasional miss is a price worth paying Find all of my reviews at Janet E books has become the literary version of partaking in some delicious cake for me I realize it s nothing but empty calories but I don t feel bad about eating the whole thing until some buzzkill comes and pees on my parade I ve read nearly everything Evanovich has written alllllll FBI Agent Kate O Hare and her criminal mastermind charge Nick Fox set up an elaborate plan to take down a casino owner who is laundering money for terrorists and the Yakuza Meanwhile Kate s father and an old Army buddy manage to piss off a Hawaiian mobster who is eventually drawn into the scam The usual funny dialogue sexual tension between our lead characters and many beautiful locations ranging from Oahu to Hong KongMacau and the much less glamorous Las Vegas strip Usual lite fare fun 35 stars Actual Rating 375 starsLike I said when I picked up this book I m not sure what led me to it as I previously stated that I wouldn t continue the series but I saw this book pop up on my libraries Overdrive site and I said what the heckThe Fox and O Hare series is a fun buddy cop series about a female FBI agent Kate O Hare working cases with a infamous con artist and international criminal turned FBI informative and asset Nick FoxYou have the classic push pull relationship good cop bad cop set up and of course lots of sexual tensionI read another review that said of the series it s like picking up some delicious junk food you Rough Rider: BWWM Interracial MC Biker Alpha Male Romance know it s just empty calories but it s so much fun you eat it anyway This is the perfect summation in my opinion I don t pick up this series to be blown away or inspired but the books are a lot of funAnd Is running a money laundering operation through his casino in Macau Some of his best customers are mobsters dictators and global terrorists Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high stakes gamblers wagering millions of dollars and their lives in an attempt to topple Trace’s empireIt’s a scam that will tak.
