Product Description

A sizzling story of everyone’s favorite couple from amazing Stephanie Evanovich’s New York Times bestseller Big Girl Panties: hunky professional baseball player Chase Walker and his sassy wife Amanda.

When pro baseball player Chase Walker first meets Amanda at her restaurant, it’s love at first sight. While Amanda can’t help noticing the superstar with the Greek-god-build, he doesn’t have a chance of getting to first—or any other—base with her. A successful entrepreneur who’s built her business from scratch, Amanda doesn’t need a Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. And a curvy girl who likes to cook and eat isn’t interested in being around the catty, stick-thin herd of females chasing Chase and his teammates.

But Chase isn’t about to strike out. A man who isn’t interested in playing the field, he’s a monogamist who wants an independent woman like Amanda. His hopes rally when she discovers that squeaky-clean Chase has a few sexy and very secret pre-game rituals that turn the smart, headstrong businesswoman on—and into his number one fan.

Then a tabloid discovers the truth and turns their spanking good fun into a late- night punchline. Is Amanda ready to let loose and swing for the fences? Or will the pressure of Chase’s stardom force them to call it quits?

I have a confession to make.

I had a brain freeze. I was *possibly* tired and emotional when I accidentally requested a review copy of The Sweet Spot.

You see, I'd just seen something about a new Janet Evanovich book and was thinking of Stephanie Plum, when this book by Stephanie Evanovich popped up on NetGalley.

I mean… you can understand my confusion.

Anyhoo…

Amanda Cole, owner and manager of a successful restaurant (with the help of mummy and daddy – sorry, can’t help myself!) is bemused when handsome and charismatic baseball star Chase Walker enters her life.

Chase soon becomes beguiled by the woman who (unlike others) refuses to pander to the baseball superstar. Amanda however, is eventually won over by Chase’s kindness , (bizarre) devotion and lack of pretentiousness; and soon the pair are in love.

Naturally however, happily-ever-after comes at a price and it’s one which Amanda might not want to pay.

The pacing of the novel was a bit off for me. Days or weeks passed in some sentences with other sequences stretching out. It was a bit like series of scenes between story-telling-like narratives.

The dominance / submission thing came from left field. Suddenly The Sweet Spot became a completely different book. I really don’t care what people want to do (as long as it’s consensual), but I did find the whole thing a bit derivative. (The source being obvious.) On top of that, it didn’t really feel authentic.

I guess what irks me about the dom/sub thing in recent novels is that the man in question is always wealthy and charismatic. It really wouldn’t play if the guy was a poor meth-head who lived in a trailer park.

However, that aside I thought the plot had promise. A famous almost-perfect guy interested in a relatively normal girl – quite frankly - the fantasy of many.

1.5 stars from me.
