Eleven on Top (Stephanie Plum #11)
Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as a fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She's been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Stephanie thinks it's time for a change. So she quits. She wants something safe and normal. But the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can't compare to the kind of tr...more
Reading the back cover of this book, I kind of think I should've put this one back, too. Giving it a shot.
Color me shocked. I loved this character.
I'm not exactly known for my grown up taste in books, nor for my appreciation of anything that comes close to "chick lit" (GOD, I hate...more
From 9th book this series started going downhill in both, humor and mystery departments. But Eleven on Top was definitely better than previous two books but still not good enough. I'll read the next book to find out if it gets better or else I'm calling it quits - at least for now.
Stephanie is beginning to question where her life is going and makes the drastic decision to quit her job as a bounty hunter. She ends up working in a button factory but gets fired the first day before she even begins work. Her next job at a dry-cleaning establishment ends when the ow...more

Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as a fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She’s been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Time for a change, Stephanie thinks. Time to find the kind of job her mother can tell her friends about without making the sign of the cross.
So Stephanie Plum quits. Resigns. No looking back. No changing her mind. She want
Well hell, when you smell that good and look that good who cares about anything else, anyway?
I don't have a lot of domestic instincts, but I have a real strong urge to take you home and hose you down.
I needed happy food.
You should have called me, I have just the thing to make you happy.
And on odd days of the month he woke up wanting to marry me. It turns out I only want to marry him on e...more

Eleven on Top is my fifth in the Stephanie Plum series, having previously read 1-3 and 8. Technically, 1-3 were enjoyed thoroughly as books on tape. The fact that I heard them all as audiobooks is a source of my frustration with Eleven on Top .
You see, the first three that I enjoyed were read by the actress Lori Petty. In my mind, Petty accu...more
Stephanie Plum just can't get a break, can she? Not from bad guys, not from explosions, and especially not from Ranger and Joe. This whole love triangle thing is absolutely killing me and I am seriously hoping it gets resolved soon....more
Really ALL of the Stephanie Plum’s I have Read Thus Far
I have a soft spot in my heart for the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I started this series about 3 years ago. A friend of my mother-in-law raved on and on about them while we were at their pool one day, so I thought I would check them out. I picked up the first one in the series, One for the Money, at my local library. I remember reading it over the course of about 3 days.
The book was well written, ha...more
I still get mad about her, "He's sexy, oh no he's sexy" stuff. I realize it's a tension-building love triangle...thing. I guess I just don't get into those when the one stuck in the middle stays (mostly) in a relationship. You're in a relationship, you chose to be in it...more
Oddly, one of the biggest complaints I've heard about the series is how the whole love triangle just drags on and on... but I'm finding I a...more
We hate to say it, as some of the other ten were definitely amusing, but there's not much smile factor left in Plum et al that we haven't heard or seen before. While there is a smidge of a plot (four small business owners are missing, and Steph keeps getting threatening notes and cars bombed), one can almost predict the rest: Lulu can't get her bond jumpers, so eats fast food; Steph shacks up with Morelli (again) but hank...more
Look. It's a hundred degrees here. I wanted something mindless, and I knew Evanovich would deliver. I wasn't...more
Ok, so let's be honest. Each book in the Stephanie Plum series does not differ all that much from one another. Sure, this installment had a bit of a twist in that Stephanie decides that "enough is enough" and quits her job as a bond enforcement agent. But we all know that she is still going to get involved. It seems like in at least half of the books in the series, at this point (book 11), Stephanie is being stalked or harassed. And you can pretty much expect that she is going to disappear,...more
So she quits. And then starts a series of nonsensical jobs (for her), discovering along the way that trouble finds her, even when she's not a bounty hunter! There are car bombings, garage bombings, and an "accident" involving a car running down her boyfriend Joe Morelli (a cop, no less!).
In the midst of ordinary life, she can't seem to catch an o...more
Eleven on Top begins with Stephanie Plum quitting the bond enforcement agency. She's tired of her life being in constant danger a...more
Indeed. As the book opens, she has just brought in the latest FTA (that's bounter hunter speak for 'Failure To Appear') in her usual way which involves rolling around in the garbage, getting her clothes torn and getting stuff in her hair and enough's enough and it's time to get a safe, proper job.
Of course. Stephanie's life is not in her control and it seems th...more

I went dry mouth. Connie bit into her lower lip, and Lula fanned herself with a file.”
