Sizzling Sixteen

Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is one of my guilty pleasures. I freaking love them. They are hilarious, light and just a little steamy without going into the eye rolling. If anything, sometimes I am wanting MORE action. Stephanie has far more morals than I do. I would totally be letting Ranger and Morelli seduce me whenever. ;)

It's taken me a bit of time to get around to the 16th installment (it came out LAST YEAR summer) but the wait list at my library for her books usually ranges between 400 and 500 people eeeek. I just happened to pop in yesterday and saw A COPY (rest still all checked out) sitting in the book express so I snagged it. Last night I had a lovely snuggle in my bed as I laughed out loud and rolled my eyes at the adventures of Stephanie, Lula (ex ho turned office filer) and Grandma Mazur (Stephanie's hilarious grandma).

This one only disappointed me in one aspect. There was hardly ANY action for poor Stephanie with either Ranger or Morelli. I like it when she gets all hot and heavy with one or both haha. But like I said, she has morals. ;)

In this book, bounty hunter Stephanie is on the lookout for beefy Butch Goodey, Chopper (who has a pet alligator), Lenny Pickerall (who stole toilet paper from rest areas) and McCuddle (who is a 70 plus year old bigamist). Of course there are hysterics and some slight drama when Vinnie, her boss and cousin, gets kidnapped by his bookie for being almost a million in debt to him. Lula, Connie (office assistant) and Stephanie have to find him and find cash to bail him out.

It was a super fast read and super funny. I read a couple hours last night and about an hour today and it was done. Fast and fresh and funny, just what I need every now and then.

What is a guilty pleasure read for you?
