Buckle your seat belts.Number one New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride.

"Wild" Bill Barnaby's dropped off the face of the earth and big sister Alex heads for Miami, Bill's last known sighting, on a harrowing hunt to save her brother ... and maybe the world. Truth is, Alex has been bailing her brother out of trouble since they were kids. Not that Bill's a bad sort. More that he acts first and thinks later. Unfortunately, this time around, Wild Bill will be Dead Bill if Alex doesn't find him in time.

Alex blasts through the bars of South Beach and points her search to Key West and Cuba, laying waste to Miami hit men, dodging Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, and putting the pedal to the metal with NASCAR driver Sam Hooker.Engaged in a deadly race, Wild Bill's "borrowed" Hooker's sixty-five foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset ... just when Hooker has plans for the boat. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Alex and maybe run into scumbag Bill. Maybe Hooker can salvage what's left of his vacation. And maybe Hooker'll get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie pie sister. After all, Hooker is NASCAR Guy. And NASCAR Guy is good at revving a woman's engine.

The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises.Creative cussing and sexual innuendo included.

This main character is interesting. Her hook-up with the various characters is also interesting. The ending wasn't obvious for me. I enjoyed the book, yet her hook-up with the NASCAR guy early in the book seems awfully convenient. Too convenient. Whatever they need, he has the connections to make it happen. Like others have said, I prefer the Stephanie Plum bounty hunter series to this one.

Amusing read, but reminds me of a pallid imitation of the Stephanie Plum novels. The side kick is a Cuban version of Lula. I adore JE's Stephanie Plum novels, but her other series that she co-writes with other authors are insipid in comparison.

This is the first time I have read Janet Evanovich. There was some moments that I found myself laughing out loud

This book is very bizarre... but surprisingly easy to read.
It's my first Janet Evanovich novel and I have to admit that I'm quite curious to see if any of her others are this bizarre/exciting.

It's basically a fun packed book about a girl who fixes engines (out to rescue her brother) and someone named Hooker (NASCAR guy).

For starters the names/nicknames of the characters in the book are a bit outrageous: Hooker, Puke Face, Slick and Gimpy (kinda like Ren and Stimpy), and Hooker has this entertaining habit of calling himself "NASCAR guy" and speaking about himself in the third person.

I didn't know what I was getting into when I started it, but I was overall pleasantly surprised. The best part of the book was that it wasn't raunchy! There were no unnecessary hot and heated sex scenes (yet it still has that verbal sparring, in a cute way)!

I don't like this as much as the bounty hunter series.
