91. Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich

About the book

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum finds herself saddled with the teenage son of Loretta Rizzi, her latest skip, When Mario "Zook" Rizzi and his obsession with the online role-playing game "Minionfire" become too much for Stephanie to handle, the pair camp out at Trenton cop Joe Morelli's house. Stephanie also takes a job with the mysterious Ranger, helping him "babysit" Brenda, a fading music star in town for a concert. After Loretta is kidnapped, Stephanie and Morelli discover that to ensure Loretta's safety, they'll have to find the $9 million that disappeared after a bank robbery committed by Loretta's recently paroled brother, Dom. A mild-mannered stalker and the upcoming nuptials of Stephanie's colleague Lula to Ranger's right-hand man, Tank, add to the crazy fun

I am not a fan of this series. However, I have enjoyed some of the past books. I was not thrilled with this one at all.

If I compare this book to all the books I've read this year, this one comes in dead last. It reminded me of a bad NaNoWriMo project. Wordcount reached, job done, and in record time, too. Give her a cookie. Maybe I'm a douche for saying this, but I can't believe her publisher paid $40 million for work of that caliber. The mind boggles.

I'd like to think that Evanovich's editor has been called onto the carpet for this one. I'm unhappy I forked over 19.00 for this and I'm beginning to wonder why I paid for the prior thirteen as well.

You know, I swore that I preordered this one and when it never showed up, I checked on Amazon and ding dong me, for some reason, never did pre-order it. I think my mind is going going gone! LOL I have heard so many mixed reviews on this one, so will be anxious to read it.

Yeah. It was just a throw up/remix of her other stuff. Not so fun anymore.
