have been a faithful Bounty Hunter fan I can remember listening to an audio and had to pull over as I was laughing so much I am not happy with Stephanie jumping from bed to bed Plus the language has gotten very nasty My question is what is the language like in this one like 10 months ago See all 3 answers sublimosa I agree with Leesidge and Heather K The language used has been consistent throughout the series I stopped reading the in between the numbers books I agree with Leesidge and Heather K The language used has been consistent throughout the series I stopped reading the in between the numbers books years ago, but they seemed tamer to me than the series.As for the jumping bed to bed, I think that started somewhere in books4, 5, or 6 if you mean her having sex with both Ranger and Morelli, although really, I think she has only had sex with Ranger a few times If you mean her literally sleeping in her own bed, Morelli s bed, Ranger s bed, her old bed at her parents house and the numerous other places she ends up sleeping Seriously, this is not the series you re looking for if you want a safe married couple relationship Stephanie is so mild by comparison to most other characters out there these days less flag See all 7 questions about Look Alive Twenty Five Lists with This Book Can t wait for the next one series books for 2018 128 books 87 voters Best books

sounds promising I hope this is an indication of something new Please for the love of Pete Pick a guy, whether Ranger or Morelli or a new character, add some life into this repetitive madness, and let it end on a good note I don t care if that means Stephanie manages a deli in Trenton and marries someone and settles with a bunch of kids or if she goes and does something different Just don t be the same old thing Maybe have her write a book She has plenty of experience to draw from let her make millions writing about the life of a Jersey bounty hunter that gets made into a movie and she can retire rich and not have to be this insane mess who constantly stumbles into awful situations to save the day.I ranted My apologies.After reading review will be awhile as I refuse to pay money for

tho I really enjoyed the latest book in the Stephanie Plum series I found it to be such an engaging storyline that I didn t even miss Grandma Mazur until her mention at the end Maybe it was the new environment as Stephanie and Lula take charge of the deli, or maybe I just needed a few laughs and a lighthearted read at this busy time of year, but whatever the case I loved the change of pace While our favorite bounty hunters are up to their usual bumbling and hilarious attempts to capture FTAs, those pursuits took a back burner to the daily routine of running a deli Lula, of course, manages to spice things up with her creative sandwich making talents, and I liked the tit for tat that Stretch and Raymond gave as they found themselves surrounded by all kinds of crazy No matter what else is going on, Lula always takes the cake Speaking of cake, there was a little less of it this time There wasn t as much family presence, and thus less leftovers and cake for Stephanie to casually swing by and pick up Morelli was also not as prominent Ranger has of a central role in the deli dealings, up to and including sandwich skills I like how Janet Evanovich leaves things loose and open to your own interpretation when it comes to Stephanie s relationship with Ranger She spends the night in his bed do they or don t they You decide Your imagination can fill in the blanks in a way that gives satisfaction to you as the reader Team Morelli Nothing happened Team Ranger Something happened Those who have read the whole series know that there s enough interest, connection, and background material that it could easily go either way but Evanovich generously lets each reader choose the outcome he or she likes best Another fast and fun read in this enjoyable series I m already

should be well beyond his life expectancy by now Speaking of that relationship issue to me, personally it doesn t appear that there is any real love there on any side The books are always zany and funny and you just can t help but chuckle at the antics.I ve rated this story 3.5 rounded up to 4 mainly because Stephanie didn t get herself into quite as many pickles as she normally does and not a single car exploded The appearance of Wulf from the Lizzy and Diesel series didn t add anything to the story either and he s just always annoying.Stephanie Plum is an inept bail enforcement agent for her cousin Vinny who is married to the daughter of a big time mobster Harry the Hammer Connie is the only competent one at the agency Stephanie s assistant is Lula, a former ho who still dresses like one Add Morelli, Stephanie s boyfriend who is a cop and Ranger, the ultra sexy owner of Rangeman security who also wants to be Stephanie s boyfriend and you have quite an interesting mix of personalities.Vinny and his father in law have taken over a deli that was forfeited when the owner jumped bail and disappeared Now, the managers keep disappearing and leaving behind nothing except one shoe Vinny has Stephanie and Lula take over running the deli in addition to her bail enforcement duties Lula is convinced that aliens are taking the managers and she is convinced that Stephanie is next Ranger and Morelli take turns protecting Stephanie and the antics are, as always, very amusing Lula fancies herself the queen of sandwich making at the deli and creates something new for each order no matter what the patron requested Ranger even gets into the sandwich making All of this is going on while they are trying to figure out what happened to the previous managers Will Stephanie and Lula still be working at the deli when the next book is released Can t wait to see.Please check out my reviews at Blog Page I requested and received this e book at no cost to me and volunteered to

it was at the start I don t know why we have to be beaten over the head about Lula eating all the time, or her being a big girl who dresses in skimpy clothes The one thing that I liked in this one was that Stephanie actually acknowledge how inept she is at being a bounty hunter Finally If she didn t have Ranger or Morelli to help her she would never catch anyone.The mystery at the deli was slightly interesting, especially at the end when everyone was found I find myself mildly intrigued by Grandma s phone call at the end I have a feeling when the next book shows up on my library s website I won

    1. As you can see from my previous reviews 24, 23, 22, 21, and 20 I am not happy with the way this series has gotten terribly formulaic The characters grew briefly only to be stunted back again one book later No decisions are ever made Cars are totaled, Lula dresses ridiculous, Grandma goes crazy, Stephanie s mom is tempted to day drink as am I reading the newer books , Rex never ages, and Stephanie can t choose between Ranger and Morelli.According to the synopsis it looks like she has a new As you [...]


    2. Why do I keep reading this series It jumped the shark so long ago that the shark has died just like this series And yet, I keep reading them Library or free versions only I m stupid, but not THAT stupid.It s not like I can t quit things I ll quit the crap out of things that bore me or make me uncomfortable in any way I have quit diets so many times that you would have to call me a professional yo yo dieter Like one of those freaks that gets really into yo yos for some reason and can do Why do I [...]


    3. Ok Let me start out first by saying that I am a fan of these novels Granted, the series started to slip when it tried to focus too much on the romance, but now we ve decided to pretty much let that go Steph is sleeping with the cop and Ranger slips in when he can find an opening I m not gonna hate on the girl cause this is the fictional world and there are plenty of hot guys to go around What I really love about these books are the side stories Lost cats, killer hens, Grandma and her hon Ok Let [...]


    4. I really enjoyed the latest book in the Stephanie Plum series I found it to be such an engaging storyline that I didn t even miss Grandma Mazur until her mention at the end Maybe it was the new environment as Stephanie and Lula take charge of the deli, or maybe I just needed a few laughs and a lighthearted read at this busy time of year, but whatever the case I loved the change of pace While our favorite bounty hunters are up to their usual bumbling and hilarious attempts to capture FTAs, tho I [...]


    5. Unfortunately, the continued deterioration of quality of this series has caused me to bail on the whole thing.And I am so mad about it I invested 23 books worth of reading time but, man, Hardcore Twenty Four was just so bad that I find I no longer have the wherewithal to continue following Stephanie Plum on her wacky adventures Additionally, Hardcore Twenty Four made it clear to me that Ms Evanovich no longer cares about Stephanie Plum beyond how much money this series makes her Stephanie Unfort [...]


    6. I will give all of the books from this series 5 stars because I love it It s crazy, stranger than ever and makes me laugh


    7. Didn t think I d say it but I am starting to get tired of Stephanie Maybe this time off I had before this book came out gave me some perspective or maybe 25 books of juggling the same two men got even me bored I don t know I still stand by TeamRanger but at this point I d be happy if she picks one and sticks with that choice Knowing it s probably never gonna happen I expect the series to go on until it s year 2058, Ranger is a space cowboy, Morelli is a Man in Black and Steph put a turbo en Didn [...]
