Overview

He’s a charming con man and she’s a dedicated FBI agent, and they’re about to drive each other crazy . . . again!
 
The FBI had one demand when they secretly teamed up Special Agent Kate O’Hare with charming con man Nicolas Fox—bring down the world’s most-wanted and untouchable felons. This time it’s the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire.  The FBI doesn’t know what their target looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick Fox has a few tricks up his sleeve to roust this particular Knipschildt chocolate–loving drug lord.
 
From the streets of Nashville to the back alleys of Lisbon, from the rooftops of Istanbul to the middle of the Thames, Nick and Kate chase their mark. When they find themselves pitted against a psychopathic bodyguard and a Portuguese enforcer who gets advice from a pickled head, they decide it’s time to enlist some special talent—talent like a machete-wielding Somali pirate, a self-absorbed actor, an Oscar-winning special effects artist, and Kate’s father Jake, a retired Special Forces operative. Together they could help make this Fox and O’Hare’s biggest win yet . . . if they survive.

I love Janet Evanovich. Her books are entertaining, funny, and keep you turning the pages. I think this is the third book in the series of FBI agent Kate and con man Nick Fox. They make a great team. You won't be disappointed if you've read the other books.

I have been a huge Janet Evanovich fan from way back. It started with her Full Tilt series, and fully blossomed with the Stephanie Plum series. I have enjoyed the Alex Barnaby and Lizzie & Diesel series (a spin off of the Stephanie Plum Holiday stories). So it was a no brainer for me to pick up her new series Fox and O'Hare, a collaboration with Lee Goldberg. Thanks to Netgalley for helping my get my hands on these books early. This book continues the sharp humor, snappy comebacks and crazy situations that Evanovich is known for. Lee Goldberg, best known for his work as a writer on the tv show and book series Monk, brings much to the table. The collaboration between these two has created a world rich in character, elaborate schemes and chutzpah. There is a lot about this book to like. If you have read any Janet Evanovich before, you know that she has a soft spot for the slightly kooky grandmother figure. In this series we have O'Hare's ex-special forces father, Jake. He steals the scenes for me whenever he is in them. I have completely fallen in love with him.  “Besides, there’s nobody who is going to watch your back better than me. You know that.” “That’s why I’m here.”  “And that’s why I’m going to be there with you, wherever there is, any time you ask and as long as I’m able,” he said. “It’s what fathers do.”  “Most fathers don’t show up with hand grenades and bowie knives.”  “They should be ashamed of themselves,” Jake said. And Jake is just one of the group of interesting characters that make this such a good series.  If you like comedy mixed with your mystery, enjoy a daring bit of retribution or simply looking for a strong female action book, give this series a try. I think of it as a cross between Miss Congeniality, Leverage and White Collar. An all around 5 star read.

I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review. The third installment of The Fox and O'Hare series is a good one. It's not as complicated as the first two, but it has a solid plot, reappearances of the same crazy team, leaves you hanging in a way that isn't annoying. I have read several reviews despairing over the "plot-driven" tendencies of this series. Isn't that the basis of a good story, though? Whacky characters and crazy antics can take you so far. Without a decent plot we're left with 350 pages of idiocy and lusting after two guys with very little actually occurring. Fox and O'Hare are the example that Stephanie Plum needs to follow- fewer shenanigans, more focus on busting bad guys.

I would like to thank Net Galley and Random House for the opportunity to read another fabulous Janet Evanovich novel, The Job. I have never been disappointed with Janet Evanovich’s stories before and she did not fail to entertain me again. Her quirky and unique characters, along with the humorous writing, keep me in stitches as we work to solve the mystery. She does a fantastic job as bringing them to life through her words. Kate believes Nick when he says he didn’t do it. I love them and, even though he is a fantastic specimen with a good boy/bad boy thing going on, she doesn’t jump right into bed with him. I like that there is no instalove, though sometimes I wonder how she resists. lol Nick is hotter than a stolen Ferrari and just as fast, sleek and dangerous. I love the lively banter and Janet Evanovich can pull it off extremely well. Her writing style makes the story flow smoothly and the reading easy. I eat up her books like the M&Ms I love so much. I love the scene where Willie is driving a 797 F heavy equipment dump truck. Totally cracked me up. I couldn’t help but laugh as the words developed into a film unrolling in my mind. The Job is a fabulous suspense/thriller adventure and I want more of Kate and Nick. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Job by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg.

Didn't disappoint.

This is such a fun series. Great main characters, interesting plots, lots of action and humor, globe-trotting, and a collection of fun supporting characters. And some sweet sexual tension. The Job is no exception - it has all of the above. This time, Nick & Kate move from Nashville to Lisbon to Istanbul to London in pursuit of their bad guys. There are plot points that require a bit of suspension of disbelief, but that's what makes these books so much fun. They're perfect for when I'm looking for a light, entertaining read, and I've enjoyed each one. Copy provided by Netgalley and Random House in exchange for an unbiased review.

The Job, is another fast paced action packed story, that is as exciting and funny as the previous books. The story travels from one part of the globe, to the next. The main goal is to bring down one of the world’s worst criminals. Nick puts together the perfect con; with the help of Kate, her father, and several other colorful characters they’ve collected along the way. The father/daughter relationship and banter between Kate and Jake is so funny, I love it! The only relationship I love more is between Nick and Kate, with all their pent up sexual frustration. I have been listening to this series and I have loved Scott Brick’s delivery and I hope he remains throughout the series. There is nothing else to say other than I loved it....Sara

Title: The Job - Fox and O'Hare Novel 3 Author: Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg Published: 11-18-14 Publisher: Random House Publishing Group/Bantam Dell Pages: 305 Genre: Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense Sub Genre: International Crime; Women Sleuths ISBN: 9780345543127 ASIN: B00J6YA1YG Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 5 Stars . FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare & former conman Nicholas Fox join together once more to flush out the brutal leader of a worldwide drug smuggling operation. The only problems are that they don't know what she looks like; where he is or where to find him. Other than that it should be a piece of cake. With Evanovich's and Goldberg's humorous style it is no surprise to find this new series combining their talents to create a group of quirky characters and dialog that will make you laugh as it draws you into the drama as it unfolds. Fox and O'Hare and their entourage continue to grow individually and as a cohesive group learning to depend on one another as they bring justice to those who believe they are above the law. Fast paced, suspenseful story that is peppered with humor. The Job will draw you in from the beginning to the very end. If you have never read any of the Fox and O'Hare books, then you are in for a treat. With an eclectic cast of characters, international intrigue and loads of action and drama how could I not give The Job a 5 out of 5 stars rating?

Hi my loyal people. Here is a new book review brought to you by me! I finished another book but I am proud to say to all of you that the reason it took so long was for a good reason. As you can see I have changed my blog site from Blogger to WordPress which I am great to say is finally up and working. I hope that you all like it better now. Anyways back to the reason for this blog post! Nick Fox and Kate O’Hare are back with an awesome book. This on, in my opinion, is one of the best books with Nick and Kate in them. These two are like the most dynamic duo that I love to read and watch on the television in shows or in the movies. We have an FBI Agent who has to be teamed up with Nick Fox while letting everyone think that she is out looking for him, because she is the only one that can catch him, but in reality is working with him for the FBI. I mean it’s pretty awesome and something that you don’t get to see every day. Plus the two of them are hilarious together. I mean we have the humor of the two of them together plus the sexual frustration that they both give each other and it just makes it into an awesome book. So in this one Kate and Nick catch at least two baddies, well unintentionally, as the first one was trying to get Nick’s attention and not the FBI’s. I also love the fact that no matter what we always, mostly, see the same team members they hire to help with the cons along with having Kate’s dad. Though I am starting to think that maybe Kate’s dad and Nick have been talking to each other secretly since they almost always agree on everything. I am giving this book five butterflies rating since it’s soo funny and kept me guessing and the whole time I was working on my new blog site with my mom I couldn’t help but think “What is going on with Nick and Kate in this book?” Or my favorite “What type of con is Nick going to pull for this one”. I always end up thinking of these things whenever I read a Fox and O’Hare novel because of the fact that these two are so funny and so good at keeping me on my toes. And sometimes making me wonder if the con will actually work and that they will get the bad guy that they are after. Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by Baroness’ Book Trove. To read more book reviews like this one please go to my book review blog site @ baronessbooktrove. Thanks so much! You won't regret it!!!

Reviewed by Marissa Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I have to admit that I haven’t read the first two books in the series but I found it wasn’t necessary. Like with most series, it helps, but I wasn’t lost without them. I love Janet Evanovich books so even though I hadn’t read Lee Goldberg, I knew I was in for a fun ride. I thought Kate had a great outlook on life. She wants Nick but also knows a relationship would be a bad idea for monumental reasons. Like the fact that he’s a thief and her life is dedicated to putting men like him in prison. I liked that her go-to comfort clothes is her FBI windbreaker and her weapon of choice is an extending baton. Nick, of course, is the perfect foil to Kate. He is suave and cool under pressure, sort of Cary Grant-ish in To Catch a Thief. I loved his flirtatious teasing and the fact that he doesn’t give up on Kate. I’m sure they will end up together down the line but for now the teasing and the banter is much more fun than a relationship. The secondary characters are all just that – characters. I especially loved Willie and her penchant for driving anything she could, regardless of what she took down in the process. Right behind her is Boyd, who played the ship’s captain in their con game. Boyd is a method actor, creating back story and completely engrossing himself in the role. I do hope we get to meet these (and the other) characters in books down the line. I wholeheartedly recommend The Job. It has all the elements required – witty repartee, action, suspense, a cast of true characters and a budding romance. Favorite Quote: “And now I’m going back to my luxurious suite. I have big plans for the rest of the evening.” “That sounds promising,” Nick said. “What did you have in mind?” “Room service,” Kate said.

Just before starting this novel, I read the second book in the series, The Chase, so I thought I'd read the new one in the series. But even reading The Chase I noticed a somewhat adolescent writing style which is much more evident in The Job. I know the authors are experienced novelists so this just must be their style of writing. It's really not a style I enjoy for this type of novel. The plot seemed thinner and the book was shorter than the previous one too. I won't continue to read any new novels in this series.
