    One thought on “Wicked Business”

    1. I think I've reached the point where I just have to overlook certain things in JE's books. Things like: the last line of this book is a line that originally appeared in a Stephanie Plum novel. She has done that in the Plum series also; the same line will appear in 2 books. Things like: this series is the same formula as the Plum series & there isn't really enough of a difference to pull it off well. So I overlooked these things & enjoyed Wicked Business. I lol a few times & even like [...]

    2. 2.5 starsI'm a fan of Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum" series, which is funny and filled with amusing characters. So I decided to give Evanovich's "Lizzy and Diesel" series a try. The Lizzy and Diesel books take a more supernatural turn. The main characters have special abilities that they use to search for stones infused with dark magic. In this book Lizzy and Diesel are in a race against Diesel's no-good cousin Gerwulf to find the Luxuria Stone, which induces lust. Gerwulf's goal is to colle [...]

    3. Second in the Lizzie and Diesel humorous romantic suspense series revolving around a group of extraordinary beings---the Unmentionables. Based in Salem, Massachusetts. In this story, they're after the Luxuria stone, the stone of lust.Diesel is a secondary character from the Stephanie Plum series. We were first introduced to him in Visions of Sugar Plums.My TakeWell. It is consistent. It's just as light, fluffy, and nothing as the first book, Wicked Appetite. It might even be too light for a beac [...]

    4. Just like the Plum series, with some name changes and a little supernatural nonsense thrown in. LIzzie = Stephanie and she's pretty much the same character. She makes cupcakes instead of being an incompetent bounty hunter, but apart from that, she's much the same. Talks a good game, but always needs a man to bail her out of trouble.Wulf = Ranger (dark and mysterious)Diesel - Morelli (sexy and a lawman)Glo = LulaClara = ConnieBlown-up carsNaked men in the bed.Which one(s) will she end up sleeping [...]

    5. I absolutely love this seriespcake baker turned sleuth, Lizzy is funny as hell and Diesel is to-die-for sexy. The antics they get up to are just too much and their "crew" are just hysterical. We have Gloria "Glo", the counter girl at the bakery, who is a wizard-wanna-be and always trying potions on anyone requiring magical assistance and travels with her manly Broom. We have Carl, Diesel's pet monkey who's forever giving people the finger. We have Cat 7143, Lizzy's shelter cat who seems more lik [...]

    6. This was better than the first Lizzy and Diesel book, but still not one of my favorite books. It was okay.The thing is, I like paranormal books. There are a lot of great paranormal series out there. Harry Dresden, Rachel Morgan, Kate Daniels - and more. This book was funny, but not very well written. Kinda like the Stephanie Plum books. Wait, make that exactly like the Stephanie Plum books.Lizzie is Stephanie. Diesel is a combination of Ranger and Morelli (sexy and flirty but he doesn't try to h [...]

    7. SPOILERS KindaDon't waste your time. If you enjoyed the characters from the first book in this series then you may enjoy this one, but honestly it was weak writing and terrible sentence structure. I honestly read this one because of the characters, Diesel and Wulf, from her Plum series, but even her strongest characters bored me in this book. She had an okay action sequence at the end and I guess the only real thing I loved about this book was Wulf's character change at the end. I hope to see mo [...]

    8. Seriously, these books, they're ridiculous.I don't recommend reading them all in a row. It's just too much.You: "You just read two in a row and have started on a third."Me: "ahI know"You: "And you gave this one three stars."Me: sheepish"ahI know"You: "What the hell is wrong with you?Me: shrugsOk, so I do really like the female friendship thing going on in here. And the pastries. I like those. And the cat. The cat is great. Also the monkey.I really don't know why I'm reading these and, worse, why [...]

    9. Brief summaryLizzy and Diesel are after the Luxuria, or Lust, stone in this book. Hot on their heels is Hatchet. Wulf is a mysterious as usual. There is a new Unmentionable looking for the stone this time and she makes Wulf look normal.What I likedThere was a lot more going on in Wicked Business than there was in Wicked Appetite. Lizzy and Diesel are all over the place looking for clues to the Luxuria stone. And I liked seeing a nice side to Wulf in this book. I hope we see that again. What I di [...]

    10. There is no one like Janet Evanovich for light easy humorous reads with quirky beloved characters. Even the "bad guys" are not so bad. While Wulf and Hatchet are working at cross purposes to Lizzy and Diesel, they take turns saving each other's lives. Guess that's a family thing, as Diesel and Wulf are supposed to be cousins. I'm not sure if that is first cousins or distant cousins. For those not big on paranormal, there isn't enough weirdness to drive you away from the story. It's more like a s [...]

    11. Fun book. I needed a laugh. I know Evanovich is totally formula driven but sometimes, when I need a laugh, the books are fun to read. It's a plus it's paranormal and also local to me. It irritates me to no end that she continued the same guy/romance formula that trashed her other series in this book. The bad boy (Wulf), good guy (Diesel) triangle thing is not only totally seethrough but annoying as hell. I mean her other series (Stephanie Plum) is like 10 books over the expiration date because s [...]

    12. One fantastic and fun, just keeps a wrinkle less flow from first book to the second. The basic plot is the same, wolf looking for Saligia stones Lizzy & Diesel trying to avoid it. Glo sort of becomes a sidekick to this couple in this book so I get to listen more of Glo. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the 3rd book.

    13. As a huge fan of the Stephanie Plum novels (I promise, it has nothing to do with the fact that I share the same name with the main character), I was overjoyed a couple years ago when I heard Janet Evanovich was coming out with a paranormal series. To combine the wit and the comedy of Stephanie Plum with paranormal stuff, it had the makings of a great series. To tell you the truth, I was satisfied with the first installment but this sequel, WICKED BUSINESS, left me a bit disappointed.Don’t get [...]

    14. Just picked up the book and as I always do with any Janet Evanovich book, I dove in ready to spend the next couple hours with a book glued to my hands.I read the first few pages and felt like I have read this before.As I continued I kept thinking"havent I read this before".As a rule of thumb I LOVE all of Janets books, however I cant seem to get past the first few chapterse monkey the vampire guy who leaves his handprints in flesh. different thus far.I realize in the Stephanie Plum series the ch [...]

    15. I had high hopes for this series, but I'm feeling quite a bit let down. It's so predictable and well, boring. I can usually read a Janet Evanovich book in about two hours (I've been reading her for almost twenty years, I now realize it is out of devotion not because she's written anything wonderful in over ten years), but this took me over a week. The characters are one dimensional, the plot is trite and the writing itself is uninspired. I think she's taken the formula failsafe too far and she's [...]

    16. This is a light humourous read. Lizzy and Diesel get into some interesting situations as they search for the second saligia stone.

    17. Quick thoughts: Entertaining, Mysterious and Fast paced.If you're looking for a quick, fast paced, dialogue heavy, quirky crime comedy then I would recommend you check out the Wicked Series. Book two, Wicked Business was packed with hilarity, secrets, betrayal, delicious sounding cup-cakes and adventure. The two main characters romance continued to progress in this book and I really liked the last line as I felt it wrapped up their progressing relationship wonderfully. Of course I have my favour [...]

    18. This review was posted at Under the CoversI think I really need to give this up. I keep doing it to myself. I had already complained when I read the first book in this series that this was just a supernatural version of the Stephanie Plum series. As in the characters seemed to be the same just with different names, the plots had only changed the bounty hunter for the supernatural but still had the same feel to them.WICKED BUSINESS is more of that, even though I will admit that maybe with the exc [...]

    20. Lizzy was living a normal life baking cupcakes in Salem when she discovered she had a secret power to find enchanted relics. Lizzy wishes she didn’t have the power. Her life was far less complicated. Now she spends her time chasing after stones that have the power to destroy the world.The delicious Diesel needs Lizzy to find the stones so that he can get them back to the ‘office’ for safekeeping. His evil cousin, Wulf, and his sidekick, Hatchet also want the stones. This caper continues wh [...]

    21. I don't get the appeal of Evanovich, at least not through this book or the previous Lizzy/Diesel pairing. The sexual tension between them is more talked about than felt.I do like the voices given by Lorelei King, especially Diesel's voice.I still dislike Glo, who's too optimistic, not to mention oblivious, to be true. Every guy she meets is sure to be The One. She's equally sure that's she's going to be, maybe even is, a wizard. Although she never gets the spells right and always leaves out some [...]

    22. I kept forgetting to put down that I had read this book, which gives an indication about how I liked the book. =)Enough with the monkey, I'm sick of the monkey! Actually I disliked Carl the monkey when he first appeared in the in-the-between the numbers Plum book so, to be fair, I was sick of him long before this book. =P On the plus side, I like that the books take place near Boston. I've been there only the once, but I can picture the places, like the Old North Church and the graveyard, better [...]

    23. I don't know if Evanovich has lost is or she simply has one plot and doesn't move on. She used to be an author I ran out to buy, wanting to be one of the first to read the book. Now I wait on the hold list at the library and was BORED with this one. As always, a couple of funny lines, but just a "yawner". In fact, I thought the book was longer than it wasd but for the fact that there were no more words, I wouldn't have known the book was overjust one long same-same story.I will continue to read [...]

    24. Review of the audiobookIt's been awhile since I read the first in this series so a lot of this was a refresher. As with any Evanovich novel, there is a lot of silly humor in this one. I'm not complaining about that. Silly humor is great and it often made me smile or chuckle quietly as I listened.But in the end, it is a Janet Evanovich book and cars are destroyed in balls of fire. I can't even complain about this now. I'm almost waiting for it to happen.

    25. Some booksd authorse like eating chocolate. One piece would be just fine. But somehow you never can eat JUST ONE! That's exactly how I am with any of Janet Evanovich's series!Can we say "Guilty pleasure???" Come on, now! Admit it. You know exactly what I'm talking about!

    26. I'm getting into the Lizzy and Diesel series. They are now looking for the love stone turned lust. Parts were funny. Overall this was enjoyable.

    27. #2 in the Lizzy and Diesel mystery seriesAs I look through my review of the first in this series, I see that I found it rather silly. But this time I enjoyed it much more, perhaps because of the excellent narration by Lorelei King. Sure, you have to suspend belief for the premise of the story (which is that Lizzy and Diesel are both part of a group of people who have paranormal talents of various sorts) and their task is to find the special stones that represent each of the 7 Deadly Sins. But th [...]

    28. A quick quirky read. Diesel cracks me up with his antics and I love the little girl group. This works well and is a lot of fun.
