Publisher's Summary

A sizzling story of everyone's favorite couple from amazing Stephanie Evanovich's New York Times best seller 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 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?

Lightweight, Fun Read

I read this before the first book in this series, Big Girl Panties. I am glad I did because if I had read Big Girl Panties first, I would not have read this book. Even though Amanda and Chase were the only likeable characters in Big Girl Panties, I was so frustrated with that book I never would have picked this one up.

Throughout most of The Sweet Spot, Amanda and Chase are an enjoyable couple to get to know. I had a couple of issues with Amanda. First, she is originally developed as a strong-willed, independent, ambitious and successful woman. As she falls for Chase, all of those strengths seem to disappear. I understand that being in a relationship with such a famous person might necessitate changes in her career and personal time priorities, but her change was far more dramatic than that. I also think that the author used the couple's mild "kink" as the excuse for this dramatic personality change. Which seemed terribly judgmental, narrow-minded and unrealistic to me. Finally, I thought her handling of the crisis was entirely out of character of the woman she is in the first half of this book.

In spite of this, I still enjoyed the book. Parts of it were quite humorous and as inconsistently written and as disappointing as Amanda was, by the end of the book, Chase was a well developed and consistently portrayed character.

The narration was very good.

- Lulu "I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater."

Couldn't finish

I think the summary should have included the fact this story is about a dom/sub relationship. I have no interest in this kind of book. I listed to about 1/2 the book hoping the story would change, then couldn't stomach anymore.
