    Not quite sophomore slump, but definitely a (sadly) sophomoric p

    Not quite sophomore slump, but definitely a (sadly) sophomoric piece. After cranking out 3 surprisingly tight books in quick succession, this 4th installment is a major letdown. I realize the author had been ill for a time but clearly she spent her recovery reading others in similar genre like Jenna Bennett, Kate Johnson, HP Mallory and Shelly Freeman and drew from them...only their efforts are far far superior to this wreck of book. Like some teen fantasy with a very weak 'mystery', lead character Lexi goes undercover dating to catch a thief, meeting a host of dashing would be badguys, endless details abide about her sporting a fabulous wardrobe (Manolos!) & lets not forget the requisite mysterious dashing man who will no doubt return in future books to muddle her already absurd romantic entanglements. The laughs found in the previous are few and more forced here, and there is a bit of tragedy unrelated to the main mystery to give it some substance, but not nearly enough to make this book into anything more than sheer chit lit with the barest dash of mystery. The book limps along till the end until alas, we are treated to a weak and obvious denouement plus the all important who will she choose! Some will no doubt be unhappy but at this point I could not care about any of them as Lex finally chooses ("I wish I knew what was going on in his head, but if pushed into a guess, I'd say lust. I couldn't blame him; I looked super hot") Egads! Yes really, that's the dramatic romantic ending, and bringing with it, regretfully, my investment in this series. Don't waste your time nor money with this one-very very disappointed.

    I love this series!!! Im really impressed that the author didn't

    I love this series!!! Im really impressed that the author didn't go the usual route when finally choosing between the two love interests. I always choose the bad boy so, it gets old when the heroine always chooses the "right" guy. (like evanovich does) I love these books every time, and cannot wait to read more about Lexi! I have no idea why someone would think this book was any less than the others. Its funny, exciting, and fast paced. I love the characters and how they have developed over the span of the series. I truly hope there is no end in sight for the series. AND I highly recommend reading these books. If you love Janet Evanovich but are always rooting for Ranger over Morelli, you will love Lexi and Soloman!!

    Highly Recommend

    I loved this 4th book in the series as much as the 3 others and was not disappointed in the story line. Lexi is Lexi and you either like her and root for her or you want to change her. I for one like her and wouldn't change anything about her. So, she's torn between two men. That doesn't make her bad, that's real life sometimes. I like both of the men in her life so whoever she chose works for me although I do feel sad for the one left. But there's always the next book and I hope we don't have to wait too long. I love all the secondary characters in the book, too many to name, but her mother cracks me up. Lots of humor, mystery and romance. JudyE

    I love the Lexi Graves series. For this review to be helpful yo

    I love the Lexi Graves series. For this review to be helpful you will have to have knowledge of the 1st 3 books in the series and waiting to find out who is at the door. It takes a while to get there but you do find out. Some will be happy with the ending, some will not. Personally, I loved it! I agree with one of the reviews below that I too stopped reading the Stephanie Plum series because of flip flopping between men. I hope Ms Chafer leaves Lexi with her choice and continues to grow all the characters from there. The same family, friends and co-workers are still there; some updates are followed. I gave this review 4 stars only because I missed more of the action from the 1st 3 but then again when you're bait for a dating service thief I guess it will be tamer. Not a lot I can say the synopsis hasn't already provided. All in all, it was a good ready and I can't wait for the next one.

    I was sort of torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one. What final

    I was sort of torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one. What finally pushed it to 4 stars is that at least in this series, the girl seems to finally make a choice about her love interest. Sure, future "complications" may present itself but one of the reasons I quit reading the Stephanie Plum books was the nonstop back and forth between men. ENOUGH! That gets very tiring after a while. Whether Lexi makes the choice the reader wants or not, at least she made a choice. The story does progress a little too slow in the beginning. It made me skip pass some things. The Lexi of the past has always been somewhat self absorbed when it comes to looking good but she seems more so in this one. She redeems her somewhat shallow self when she's forced to make a decision that clearly says about her that "family/friends first". I'll keep up with this series but I'll quit the moment the author starts having Lexi go back and forth between men.

    LOVE!!!!!

    I love Lexi and her adventures. I was not disappointed in this!!! I highly recommend, if you haven't read any of the series you need to. I laughed, held by breath, and cried. I really love Maddox and Solomon for different reasons. It was a hard choice, but I think it was the right one. I can't wait for the next book. The only thing with this book was that it's shorter than the others, but still good.
