Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton

Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he’s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.

What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.

“Now it’s my turn,” Riley said. “What’s your first name? Where’d you grow up? Who’s your favorite Batman?”

I really love Janet Evanovich's writing so when Curious Minds came up on Netgally I had to request it and I was over the moon when I was approved. I was so excited that I opened it up straight away.

I did really enjoy this book, I didn't love it as much as some of Evanovich's other work but I did like it. For a start this is a book that doesn't take itself very seriously and is an awful lot of fun. I really enjoyed the funny storyline and writing even when it bordered on the absurd. This really was my type of funny so I breezed through this book laughing a lot on the way.

The characters was brilliant. I really liked Emerson, he was wacky and funny and charming. Riley was a lot more serious but not in a bad way. I found that they really balanced each other out. There wasn't really that much romance between them but the chemistry was definitely there. I hope that they will get together in the next book in the series.

Despite all the fun I had with this book there was something missing from it that meant I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. I cannot put my finger on it but I just wanted something a little more.
