What Smokin' Seventeen is about: Stephanie Plum once again bumbles her way through apprehensions of bond skips while Lula and Grandma yuck it up as the comic relief. She's still torn between boring Joe (IMHO) and that mouth-watering Ranger! More cars are sacrificed and someone wants her dead!
Why I wanted to read it: I have been reading these books for a few years now, found myself getting bored with Stephanie and had actually thought about stopping until Mary @ Bookfan Mary, suggested that I listen to them instead!

- I loved the narrator, Lorelei King, on this audio. She has some crazy voices and made the characters come to life in a great way. I will admit to having some issues at the beginning with her voices for Joe and Ranger, but I was able to set that aside and just enjoy the story.
- I will never, ever read this series again! I will forever listen to them on audio...a huge thank you to Mary!
- Listening to this on audio helped me enjoy the story because I only listened to it in small sections. By doing this, I think it really downplayed the ineptness of Stephanie's lack of apprehension skills. It was much easier to take because I wasn't so focused on how stupid she really is!!
- Lula and Grandma were the best part of the audio! I loved how the narrator really made them seem vivid to me and I could totally picture them in my head!
- I laughed while driving to work! and then I laughed while driving home! That is a win-win for me!
I already have requested Explosive Eighteen on audio and am actually looking forward to listening to it. The audio has renewed my interest in the series and made it fun and fresh! Plus, I have to find out who she picks in the end.......my vote is for Ranger!
