Janet Evanovich's Sizzling Sixteen

I LOVE THESE BOOKS!! What's bad is I can't really always remember the plot, but what I do remember is laughing so hard I can't stop. Without fail, these books are hilarious. The crazy characters, the conversations, the situations that are so far out there you can't help but laugh. It could be anything, you never know what's going to happen, (well, other than donuts and fried chicken will be involved). And, to add to it, there is Ranger and Joe Morelli both vying for Stephanie's affections in two very different ways. My favorite line from this particular book...

"Morelli would have offered me a beer. Ranger always offered me wine I couldn't afford to buy. Ranger knew the value of temptation and bribery."

Personally, I think she needs to ditch Joe once and for all and take Ranger up on his many offers, but that's just me.

I'm a big Evanovich fan too, although this makes me realize that I'm a bit behind. I wrote a blog post here if you want to compare notes on the excellence of Stephanie Plum

I like Joe, though. He has to put up with more.

I was thinking the other day, as I was reading Sizzling 16, about how it's always the same scenario, but it still works and you still never know exactly how it's going to go. It's entertaining, and funny, and such a mix of characters with a little romance thrown in. I haven't quite found another author that gets the mix just right like she does.

As for Joe and Ranger, my thing is, Joe might put up with a lot, but he wants her to quit her job and marry him, while Ranger wants her to be herself and just does his best to protect her. Not to mention, he's got some moves ;)

I think I'm all for not choosing, I mean since it's fiction.

Yes, it's hard to recommend "someone like her", I've found. She is kind of her own category.
