Four to Score
Four to Score delivered everything I expected and still kept it fresh. This time, Vinnie hires Stephanie's biggest rival, Joyce Barnhardt, to track down the same FTA! I hate Joyce. I got so mad whenever she showed up, but it certainly kept the books fresh. And the way Stephanie deals with her at the end makes me laugh.
As for romance, that is definitely still there! I love the awkward romantic tension between Stephanie and Morelli (although Ranger is hot, too). When the bad guy tries to kill Stephanie by blowing up her apartment, she decides the only person she hates enough to risk his life is Morelli... and she moves in with him. Obviously in a community like theirs, the talk starts immediately. Stephanie has often had to sit through awkward family dinners and it was even more fun seeing her sit through an awkward family dinner with Morelli's family. Plus, when Morelli's grandmother decides Stephanie is going to get married and have a baby (she is believed to be psychic), all of the extended family started bringing over food and baby items.
These books are non-stop conflict. It's where the fun happens, it's where the comedy happens, and it's where the action happens. I really can not wait to keep reading this series.
This book counts towards the following challenges: 100+, Harry Potter Reading challenge Hide and Seek mini Challenge.
