#59 Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich

One of my favorite series of books. Stephanie Plum is such a fun character to follow and the men (both of them---she's trying to figure out which is best for her) in her life are SO easy to read about. She's a "bonds agent" aka Bounty Hunter so there's plenty of mystery and potential drama with adequate action but overall it's very funny. I don't think there's one character I could do without and in some of the books I wish there was more of one character that may have taken a backseat for the story.
I already have #18 on hold at the library. I'm 11th in line and it doesn't come out until November. I waited MONTHS for this one to get to be my turn.

#57 Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith

I liked this one better than the last. It, also, elaborated a bit on the writer's idea for the series. It's common thread or basis for the series is a common "world". A world where vampires, weres and other "entities" exist. This one was about a guardian angel that prevents the death of his human only to leave her in the immediate path of a vampire. I liked the angel twist. Again, I think it would be better if it was an extended version with more twists and development but I did like this one better.

#56 Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith

This book/series was recommended by the library as a "You'll probably like" title. It was okay. Simply was a young adult vampire story. Doesn't mean it was a really well written YA vampire story. The story was original and I like that but I don't think this writer put enough into it. It might have been better if it was aimed at an older demographic, too. As would have been better if they would have made it longer, gorier and sexier.
