Blog Tour: The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich

Author: Stephanie Evanovich
Publisher: William Morrow
Date of publication: July 8 2014

From New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Evanovich comes another rollicking, sexy story of just how far a couple will go to find true love—and keep it sizzling!

When pro baseball player Chase Walker first meets restaurateur Amanda Cole, it’s love at first sight. But 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.

But Chase has charm and heart, as well as hunky good looks, and he isn’t about to strike out in this courtship. His hopes rally when Amanda discovers that squeaky-clean Chase has a few sexy and very secret pregame rituals that turn the smart, headstrong businesswoman on—and into his number one fan.

Then a tabloid and a hidden camera threaten to turn the love of a lifetime into just another late-night punch line. 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?

 The Sweet Spot actually take place before Big Girl Panties (my review). We first met Chase and Amanda in Big Girl Panties.  They were a fun couple and this is the story of how they got together.  Amanda is an independent, strong willed restaurant owner.  Chase, a famous baseball player, is smitten the minute he meets her.

There are a couple of things that I loved about this book.  I loved the way Chase sets out to woo Amanda and prove to her he is all in.  I also loved the open communication between the couple especially when it came to their bedroom play.  I always think that is important for any couple to be open and honest about what they want. That being said, their "secret" was kind of off for me. It didn't really go along with anything the normal dom/sub relationships I am used to seeing in books. But then, Chase always did say they were writing their own rules.

I loved the ending.  I thought their wedding was so perfect! This is another hit from this author!  I definitely recommend reading it and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
