9780062336002: The Sweet Spot: A Novel

When baseball superstar Chase Walker first meets Amanda at the restaurant she runs, her heart-shaped face and big blue eyes stop him dead in his tracks. Her lush, plus-size curves don’t hurt either. But while Amanda can’t help staring back-Chase is built like a Greek god, after all-she’s no groupie in the making. A successful entrepreneur who’s built her business from scratch, Amanda doesn’t need a Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. So when baseball’s golden boy begins to pursue her, she barely gives him the time of day. Sure, he has money and looks and charm, but Amanda does just fine on her own and she’s definitely not interested in being an athlete’s girlfriend-particularly if it means having to hang out with the herd of catty, stick-thin herd of athletes’ girlfriends who surround Chase and his teammates. But Chase is not the kind to give up easily-at heart, he’s a monogamist who likes independent women, unlike the pro ballplayers he hangs out with. Amanda is exactly the type of woman he’s been looking to settle down with, and with a little extra effort he persuades her to go out with him. And then she discovers that squeaky-clean Chase Walker has a spicy little kink that his fans don’t know about (but which readers of BIG GIRL PANTIES will remember well). To her surprise, this smart, headstrong businesswoman discovers she likes a playful spanking from time to time, and all is well until a tabloid finds out-and turns their private naughty secret into 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 and the tabloid media spell doom for this sexy couple?

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?

Review:

Dorothea Benton Frank Stephanie Evanovich

Dorothea Benton Frank, bestselling author of The Hurricane Sisters, interviews Stephanie Evanovich

Dottie: I just want to congratulate you on the success of Big Girl Panties, your debut. And you’re following that up a year later with a new novel that I’m sure will keep people talking.

Stephanie: Thanks Dottie! It's been a really fun year. I'm looking forward to the July 8th release of The Sweet Spot. I can't wait to get back out there and talk to readers about it. And congrats on your new release - The Hurricane Sisters. It's the book I think I'll be taking with me when I travel, if I can wait that long to read it.

Dottie: The romantic duo in The Sweet Spot, Chase and Amanda Walker, were sidekicks in Big Girl Panties — did fans specifically ask for you to bring them back for a star turn?

Stephanie: After BGP hit the streets and I started getting feedback, it was pretty clear that some readers really took to them. They nearly stole the show! And I'm positively thrilled by that. They may be my favorite couple.

Dottie: Chase Walker is a superstar baseball player and a lot of the tension in the novel is Amanda trying to decide if she wants to be a superstar’s girlfriend. I know you’re a sports fan - were you excited to have a pro athlete as your hero?

Stephanie: Excited is a bit of an understatement. It was more like crazy-over-the-moon psyched. There's just something about athletes. ..yum.

Dottie: There’s some genuinely fun spicy scenes in this book! How do readers when you turn up the heat?

Stephanie: When I went out on the road with BGP and met readers, fun seemed to be the order of the day. Throw some spice in there and it's a recipe for delicious hotness - at least I'm hoping that's the case.
