Book Description

March 2004
A novel brimming with nonstop action, quirky characters, sexy highjinks, and sharp humor

Welcome to Full Speed. You'll fall in love with Jamie Swift and Max Holt, one dynamic duo who can't seem to escape trouble--and an irresistible attraction--as you follow them from one adventure to another.

Newspaper editor Jamie Swift likes a little predictability in her life. When she suddenly finds herself minus a fiancé and with a major case of the hots for her silent partner, millionaire Maximillian Holt, any bit of predictability goes right out the window. Max is like a tornado, turning her well-ordered world upside down. Now someone's unhappy with Max's recent business deal--dangerously unhappy. Before she knows it, Jamie's hotfooting across state lines to help Max and land a story. But Sweet Pea, Tennessee harbors some smelly secrets, many of which reside under the big tent of revivalist Harlan Rawlins, whose link to the Almighty rides shotgun with his Mob connections.

Posing as husband and wife, with computer genius Muffin and a mutt named Fleas along for the ride, Max and Jamie are in the middle of another crazy case, closer than ever to each other--and too close for comfort to the kind of people who will do anything to stop them.

From the Back Cover

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the world of Jamie Swift and Max Holt! My good friend Charlotte Hughes and I have teamed up to create a series of books featuring these two characters and they've taken on a life of their own! These books are not set in the same world as my Stephanie Plum novels, but what they have in common is lovable, dysfunctional characters, villains you love to hate, and a cross-eyed way of looking at life. Jamie and Max have intense chemistry-even though they drive each other crazy. Max thinks Jamie is a magnet for trouble and Jamie thinks Max is the most annoyingly sexy, mysterious man she's ever met. She knows she should stay away from him. But boy, oh boy, do the sparks fly when they get together. Jamie is a newspaper owner from a small southern town. And in Full Speed, she's after the story of a lifetime. Max Holt is right in the middle of that story, and so Jamie tracks down the millionaire playboy, forcing him to take her on as partner. What follows is a story of a corrupt minister, a gang of mobsters on the loose, a hound dog called Fleas, a wise-cracking computer genius, and lots of love in the fast lane. Not to mention plenty of steamy action between Jamie and Max.

So have fun with Full Speed. We're going to sign off now and get back to creating more romantic adventures between Jamie Swift and Max Holt. Enjoy and happy reading!

Janet and Charlotte

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! May 7 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first of this series I've read and I was very disappointed. Definitely not on a par with her Stephanie Plum novels which are fun reads. This was boring and very predictable.

I would like to suggest that Evanovich did not write any of these "Full" series books. I can't honestly do that, but I would bet that while she may have used an editorial blue pencil once in a while, and tossed in a para or two, she didn't have much to do with any of them. The characters are typical of those imagined by a teen-ager dreaming of a rich knight in shining half-million dollar automobiles and of being the gorgeous girl who finally traps this knight. The plots are clumsily contrived, the humor amateurish and the series overall is definitely not worthy of having her authorship.
Evanovich is a skilled humorist who reminds me a great deal of the wonderful writer-humorist Thorne Smith. Smith wrote the Topper novels, Turnabout, and several others which, like Janet's, could crack the reader up with their ridiculous hilarity. There's no sign of that here.
Janet Evanovich has her name associated with some of the cleverest and funniest books I've ever read.
This was not one of them

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not a Stephanie Plum book... March 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I, too, am an avid reader of the Stephanie Plum (SP) novels. Janet Evanovich (JE) can't write them fast enough for me. As another reader mentioned, I was having a JE reading withdrawl, so I bought Full Speed. I didn't expect it to be like SP, but I expected it to be just as funny. Not quite...
I have to say that I hated "Muffin" in this book. As unbelieveable as some of the things JE writes about are, Muffin was going overboard! The main characters somewhat reminded me of a SP/Joe Morelli/Ranger type of attraction, but didn't come close to exuding the same energy or attraction.
The book was somewhat entertaining. It had its slow parts. I thought the last 100 pages were probably the best since the story started to really come together.
Go buy the 1-9 Stephanie Plum novels instead. Guaranteed you will NOT be disappointed in those!

Disappointing. I can recommend the Stephanie Plum series but not the _Full_ collaborations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book! Jan. 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I read Full Tilt, I expected it to be about Billie and Nick from Full House, but boy was I wrong! Max and Jamie are great together and in Full Speed I thought that it would just be dragging along in the series. Wrong again. I loved this book! The plot was really different and interesting and I wouldn't mind reading this book again. I really can't wait until Full Blast comes out! I just think there should be more action between Jamie and Max.

1.0 out of 5 stars I want my two hours back! Jan. 22 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have always enjoyed Evanovich's books - I even read (and mostly liked) _Full House_, even though it was essentially a romance novel, and lacked a lot of the spark I've come to expect from her. This, though...this...was simply abysmal. Horrid. No good. To be avoided. Awful. Unforgiveable. It isn't even mental bubblegum - it's mental flatulence. I'm no intellectual snob - I absolutely love good, silly stuff, but this isn't at all that kind of bad.
_Full Speed_ focuses a character who vaguely resembles Stephanie Plum (a popular Evanovich character,) only without her wit, charm, or charisma. Then it tosses in a handsome, dashing, wealthy-beyond-human-measure man that is supposed to make us all fall immediately in love with him and go weak in the knees. The trouble is, he's far too cliche, far too "perfect." The book throws these two characters into ludicrous situations, from which they (of course) manage to extract themselves, and oh, did I mention the car? Do you remember "Knight Rider?" Replace the annoying voice of KITT with the computer voice of a control freak woman going through menopause, who experiences emotions and has access to pretty much anything technological on the planet. Insert a lot of badly-done high-tech hijinks, and oh my but hilarity fails to ensue!
There are the too-usual pseudo-sex scenes that are always interrupted, and there are the predictable "aw, isn't the doggie cute and nearly human" scenes (I'm a total dog freak, but the way the authors treat the bloodhound in the book nearly made me gag.) There are the moments when one might kind of say "heh" in a nearly amused way...but that's all. The plot is weak, the bad guys are superficial, the humor is nigh-undetectable...[sigh] I'm hugely disappointed. I'll continue to read (and very likely enjoy hugely) Evanovich's Plum series, but I won't touch another _Full_ book. Ever.
I want my two hours back!

Thought this was a great book and a very easy read. Not as funny as the Stephanie Plum series, but still entertaining.
