Stephanie Evanovich
Released July 8th, 2014 (Print)

Last summer readers were captivated by Stephanie Evanovich’s highly-anticipated New York Times bestselling debut novel, Big Girl Panties. This summer, Evanovich is back with THE SWEET SPOT, the sizzling story of two of readers’ favorite characters from Big Girl Panties: Chase Walker, the hunky professional baseball player, and his beautiful, curvy, and exceptionally sassy wife Amanda.

Amanda is a successful, levelheaded woman who built her restaurant from scratch. She’s certainly not looking for a prince charming to sweep her off her feet. So when Chase, baseball’s golden boy, begins to pursue her, she barely gives him the time of day. Her heart-shaped face and big blue eyes stop him dead in his tracks and her lush, plus-size curves don’t hurt either. And while Amanda’s used to celebrities and politicians dining at the Cold Creek Grille, she just can’t stop staring at Chase—he’s hotness personified.

At heart, Chase is a monogamist who likes strong women, despite his playboy image. Amanda is exactly the type he’s been looking to settle down with, but she won’t say yes easily. From daily visits to the restaurant to extravagant flower arrangements, Chase will stop at nothing to persuade her to go out with him—and he finally succeeds!

For Amanda their romance is all too good to be true, and something has got to give. Can Chase really be this perfect? And then she discovers that squeaky-clean Chase Walker has a spicy little kink. While readers of Big Girl Panties will remember it quite well, Chase’s fans have no idea that off the field, he likes to indulge in a little passionate spanking from time to time.

To her surprise, Amanda discovers a naughty side she never knew she had. But then, thanks to a tabloid, their secret comes to light and becomes the nation’s favorite water-cooler gossip. Will Amanda give up a little bit of her single-girl freedom for true love with a twist? Or will the pressure of Chase’s stardom spell doom for this sexy couple?

THE SWEET SPOT is an incredibly sexy and charming story filled with wit, fun, and extra-spicy romance. This is the perfect follow-up to Big Girl Panties and undoubtedly a great choice for summer reading.

THE SWEET SPOT was the story of Amanda and Chase, who we met in BIG GIRL PANTIES, and we finally get to find out about the "scandal" that rocked their relationship. And it was certainly Scandalous!! 

I liked the idea behind getting to see Chase and Amanda as the main focus of a romance, and I thought the beginning when he was first pursuing her was super sweet and I was thinking Amanda was a dope for not taking this man up on all he was offering, and believe me, throughout the rest of the book, I was still thinking she was a dope...but Chase had his moments were i didn't think he was so super-sweet...he was kind of a jerk...but I guess we all have our moments!

The aspect of "spanking" was a bit off for me, I could have done with or without, but for anyone who is worried about it being "graphic", it's not, so someone who is more of a Women's Fiction fan can certainly still enjoy!  The romance aspect is what held my attention, as I wanted to see Chase and Amanda find that everlasting love...You will have to read to find out what happens...cause it is certainly a bumpy...or naughty ride?

If you have read BIG GIRL PANTIES, you won't want to miss THE SWEET SPOT!!
