I liked this one better than the first one I have to say. I thought Jamie was a stronger female lead and the interaction between them was good enough that I could forgive the male lead for being named Maximillian Holt and I could overlook that she was a struggeling small town newspaper owner and he was a rich sexy batman type. So I guess I am saying that the writing was good enough that you can forgive the cliches.

Same as the first book. Wasn't really interested in what happened to any of the characters, the mystery seemed weak, and things just meandered on until it stopped.
This is the second book in this series. The first one is set 20 years earlier and was written at least 10 years earlier. Basically JE wrote the first one under a pen name and then Charlotte Hughes joined the team and they updated and expanded it. From there they started a series which is really just based on Max. When we meet Max in the first book, he is 16, he's a child genius, he has been out of HIgh school for 4 years and has been kicked out of several universities. He is an idealist that jus ...more

I always love Janet Evanovich's books. I read some and then also get her audiobooks. For this book, I got the audio version. Lorelei King is amazing at telling the stories and holds your attention throughout. I realize that once I get to the place I am going, I usually sit in the parking lot for at least 5-10 minutes longer than needed in order to continue listening to the books.

Muffin was a bit overdone in terms of personification...a little too sci-fi for me in this scenario. Not that I don't want a car with AI like Muffin; it just seemed a bit over the top.

One takeaway from this book: proper use of trouper versus trooper. I have my normal grammatical pet peeves, as most readers do: your/you're, its/it's, there/their/they're, know, the mundane ones that elicit groans from even non-editors. However, I also eschew lesser known errors, and trouper/trooper is a

Full Tilt was very fun, sort of like Knight Rider for written for women. The main star of the novel is a sweet car with a mega-powerful computer. The computer, named Muffin, comes fully equipped with a sexy Marilyn Monroe voice. The actual main characters, Jamie and Max, share a thick romantic tension felt throughout the book.

While I enjoyed the book a lot, I have some complaints as well. Most importantly, the would be killer said some rather obvious things in the middle of the book that, while

This is #2 in the new "Full....." series by Janet Evanovich. This one is about Max and Jamie. Lots of quirky characters. Tension. Frankie is running for mayor of a small town in South Carolina, and he suspects someone has been misusing the city's tax funds. He promises to look into possible corruption, and that's when the trouble starts.

Threatening letters, a shooting at the newspaper office, and worse. Max investigates, and brings Jamie along with him. He uses Muffin to help him . "Who's Muffi

Love these books! I really want a car like Muffy. So cool!

Co-written with another author. Not nearly as good as Evanovich by herself writing about Stephanie Plum.
Just - The romance reader
As with all Janet Evanovich I've read thus far, I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and action filled with a nice little romance thrown in.

Ok... I am an Evanovich fan girl. I have been reading her books for years. I have fond memories of my father listening to this book. That being said, this is the first time that I've actually listened to the audio book start to finish.

Though I enjoyed the character's mis-matched characteristics, I did find that they didn't expand on all of the characters fully. Jamie and Bennie had a great introduction. Frankie, Deedee and the wrestlers were in the previous book so they didn't need anything mor
Though not my favorite Evanovich series, still worth reading. Of course, Stephanie Plum series is number one of all and really quite wonderful. Diesel and Lizzie are also wonderful, just not as many yet. This series, the Full series, is fluff and attempt. I feel as though they are early works and she has improved very much with the Plum series. I don't know when what was written, it is just the impression I have. I still wouldn't miss reading the Full series. READ in ORDER.

It is a "no brainer" book. I had the audio version, which I think made it rather amusing. Max Holt has a highly modified car with a computer called "Muffin". She talks to him, has a personality, shows emotion and a voice like Marilyn Munro. Jamie is the owner of a struggling country town newspaper. She doesn't know that Max is her silent partner. Max can be egotistical and a bit sleazy but you can't help but like him. It's an amusing jaunt!

Jamie Swift runs the local (failing) newspaper. Millionaire and playboy Max Holt comes to town to support his brother-in-law's mayoral race. Corruption and a murder plot ensue but you can call the mastermind the minute you met the character
I didn't really enjoy this book. The characters all felt a little under developed to me.
It's alright but it definitely chugs along at certain points in the book.

The Full Box is a four-book audio set. I previously listened to and reviewed Full House here on KariAnnAlysis. It was one of the first audio books I listened to. I’ll always turn to Janet Evanovich when I need a good, light read. That’s why I was thrilled when I found the rest of this series in a complete box.

Here’s a short synopsis of each book:

Full Tilt: Jamie Swift’s newspaper is running on fumes. If something doesn’t turn around soon, she will have to stop the presses. Her silent partner Max

What's not to love about anything Janet Evanovich writes? She's always fun and her mysteries are interesting.

Publisher's Summary
Dear Listener,

With Full House, my good friend Charlotte Hughes and I teamed up to create an exciting new series. Now we bring you the second audiobook, Full Tilt, which is filled with even more fast-paced action, crazy characters, steamy sex, suspense, and nonstop hilarity. While these audios are not set in the world of Stephanie Plum, we're convinced they will bring you

#2 in the Full series, narrated by Lorelei King

This is a fun romance, with a bit of a mystery thrown in. Funny that I just listened to a different audiobook read by this narrator, and I wasn't impressed with her voicing. But in this book, her voices are well-done and distinctive. I remember Max from the first book in the series when he was just a 16-year-old genius. Now he's grown up into a wealthy man from his inventions and business acumen. He has a car with a built-in computer that he's creat

I probably wouldn't have read this as part of the continuing Full Series, if it hadn't been for a couple things:
1) If I hadn't already been on a quest to read all of Janet's books
2) If my Aunt hadn't told me how much she loved this series.

That being said, I also think I actually read this one once before about 5 or 6 years ago. As a random book that I found at the library before I really 'discovered' Janet Evanovich.

This book was MUCH better than the first book of the series!! MUCH!! You can t

I enjoy these books by Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes a whole lot more than the Stephanie Plum series, which I detest. This series is cute and hilarious. Workaholic Jamie Swift is engaged to Phillip Standish (a fine upstanding rich guy) when her silent partner, Maximillian Holt comes to town to visit his sister, DeeDee, Jamie's best friend. DeeDee is married to ex-wrestler Frankie who is running for mayor and has promised to stop the corruption in their small town and find out where all th ...more
