(61)The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich

Amanda's day started bad and it went down hill from there.  First a bird pooped on her when she was driving to work with the top down and then when she gets to work she is told that a VIP will be making an appearance at her restaurant and she had better have her best table available. That night Amanda meets Chase Walker, the legendary (and incredibly hot) baseball player.  Chase is so smitten with Amanda that he becomes a regular fixture at the restaurant until she agrees to go on a date with him.  Amanda finally gives in thinking he will just go away once they have their date, but Amanda fully underestimated the intense emotion that Chase feels for her.  Will Amanda give into Chase's desires no matter what they are?

We first met Chase Walker and his beautiful wife, Amanda in Big Girl Panties.  The Sweet Spot is Chase and Amanda's story.  It is definitely a fast and steamy read.  If you remember, in Big Girl Panties, there were hints that Chase and Amanda had a unique life in the bedroom and this book expands on those unique proclivities.  It isn't in the same manor of say, Fifty Shades of Grey, but it isn't that far off.  And with much better writing.  As much as I enjoyed Big Girl Panties, I was just "meh" about The Sweet Spot. I liked the characters and I liked finding more about them after first meeting them last summer, but I found Chase to be a bit of an egotistical ass.  I guess it is somewhat expected of a world famous athlete, but I wanted Amanda to be a bit stronger of a female character.  By stronger I mean, not put up with his spoiled athlete bullshit. But in the end, they obviously were a good fit. 

Bottom line, The Sweet Spot was a fun, steamy novel that explores the wild side of two characters we have met before.  While I found myself irritated by some of the character flaws of Amanda and Chase I was captivated by their love story.   Definitely worth the read if you are in the mood for a hot and steamy read.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
