Ranger vs Morelli

This one is for all you Plum fans out there.

I just finished reading Finger Lickin' Fifteen, the latest in Janet Evanovich's series about disaster prone Trenton bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum. [I have no idea why this hasn't been made into a TV series, I think it would rock!]

I won't reveal any spoilers about this installment of the ongoing saga. I'll just say, I envy Ms. Evanovich's ability to keep a series going for fifteen books and to keep fans wondering will she or won't she with regards to her heroine's two equally yummy love interests.

For those of you not in the know, Ms. Plum has two gorgeous men in her life - hunky Joe Morelli, one of Trenton's finest and mysterious Carlos Manoso, aka Ranger, fellow bounty hunter and security company honcho.

One offers stability, the prospect of a home and family, a solid future - and the other offers endless adventure and sex so hot she can't even bring herself to repeat their one night stand. I know the debate runs hot on which one Stephanie should ultimately choose - but I've got to say, I'm a hands down Ranger fan. Maybe I feel that way because Stephanie is a fictional character, and therefore her life can go any way Ms. Evanovich wants it to go, so why shouldn't she have all the fun and adventure she can get? If Ms. Plum were a real person, I might be in the Morelli camp...then again...

Well, for all you fans out there, weigh in. If you could choose Ranger or Morelli, which would it be?

Hmmm...I guess it would depend on my mood for that day ;)

Hi Toni! I've gone back and forth myself...but my adventurous side is in charge at the moment, so Ranger all the way! [no pun intended. Much.] LOL

Morelli was a yummy hottie before he and Steph actually got it on. Now i am leaning towards Ranger. So hot, so mysterious, so yum!
I sure hope that Ms Evanovich doesn't marry stephaine off to Morelli any time soon. would love another one night stand with Ranger... and more details please!

I choose both but I also think she needs to just let herself go a little more with Ranger... just to see where it leads!!!

Have to go with Ranger all the way. Morelii wants to change Stephanie into a Burg housewife. Ranger, besides being hot, sexy, etc., supports Stephanie in her decisions and is fine with letting her be whatever she wants to be.
