The Job by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg

I recently red The Job by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg. This is the third book in the Fox & O'Hare series. This story follows Kate O'Hare, an FBI agent and Nicholas Fox, criminal. The pair work together to solve a crimes, only this time they do not know who they are looking for. 

I absolutely love Janet Evanovich's books. All are light, fun, usually funny movies. This book was the same. The story takes all over the world, leading Kate and Nick into often dangerous territory. Danger in many ways, physical safety and physical attraction .

This story is the perfect read! I hope that everyone picks it up!

All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner

This story follows overwhelmed mother, daughter, writer Allison Weiss through her journey through recreational drug use, to full addiction and finally doing something about it. Allison has a father who has Alzheimer's, a mother who doesn't know how to handle the household duties like paying bills and an extremely sensitive daughter who often requires extra attention and measures in order to make her happy. 

I was able to relate to this story, on some level. Reading has always been my peace. It's the way I deal with stress. At the time I was following this story I was dealing with an extremely painful hip and back injury. Although my back is now significantly better, my hip is not. My medication was not nearly as strong as the pills Allison was taking. I was also dealing with crazy, stressful situations in my office. I have a co-worker who yells and screams for just about everything and someone 
who had decided the month of July was the month he was going to nit pick everything I did. That being said reading this book related to me a lot more than a story about drug addiction should have. For the record, unlike Allison I fight the pain and wait until I really cannot take it anymore to take anything (just 1 pill). I DO NOT take anything that has not be rightfully prescribed to me and nothing I take is anywhere horrible as what the character of Allison was taking.

This story could very easily be anyone's story. The addiction is only one aspect. With Ms. Weiner's amazing writing skills you can feel the stresses in Allison's life. I found myself unable to put the book down. In the moments I forced to step away from it getting back to the book became all I could think about. I absolutely adore Ms. Weiner's stories. I cannot wait until her next one is announced and I can once again begin my countdown to publication clock!

The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich

I recently read The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Evanovich. I had high hopes that the writing gene would be passed down from Stephanie's aunt Janet. Within in the first few chapters it was very clear that that the gene was definitely passed!

This story follows baseball player Chase Walker when he first meets restauranteur Amanda. At Amanda and Chases first interaction he falls madly in love with her. However, Amanda isn't that easy to persuade. The story shows Chase's quest to have Amanda fall in love.

I truly enjoyed this story. I could not put it down. I had my co-workers read it the day after I finished! We all loved it. I cannot wait to read Ms. Evanovich's first book, Big Girl Panties as well as all of her future books. She definitely has a new fan!

The One & Only by Emily Giffin

I recently read The One & Only by Emily Giffin.This story follows super football  fan Shea Rigsby. Shea has been a Walker football fan her entire life. Her best friends father is the coach of the college team. After Shea's best friend's mother passes away Shea's life changes in unexpected ways.

Although I enjoy Ms. Giffin's books this one was not my favorite. It was very sports oriented, specifically football. I am not someone who is very interested in sports, especially football. Football is a sport that I know absolutely nothing about, beyond the Superbowl has a good halftime show and awesome commercials. If it involved baseball at least I would have been able to understand the game involved. The characters and story line are very well developed. You can see the growth, love and passion that the characters possess. So do not let the sports aspect keep you from reading!
