The Sweet Spot–Stephanie Evanovich

This book is hard to judge just because it’s not what I thought it was going to be like when I first met these characters.

They’ve appeared in another novel I read “Big Girl Panties” and they seemed like the more realistic of the two couples in the book. They were married, they were real with each other, they were open with the world about who they are and what they do.

This is a preclude to that book, even though it was written afterwards, and it seemed a little odd to me how the couple got together.

Don’t get me wrong, I love these two together, they are really funny, and the writing is pretty good, but it seemed a little weird given that this is a modern day book with an independent woman.

Not to get into a whole big issue here, but there is spanking involved, neither of these people have been sexually abused in their lives, they both have good heads on their shoulders, spanking was introduced to the male character when he was younger as a joke from a girlfriend and he realized he was into it. The female character was sort of just tossed this information and had to find a way to deal with it, or not.

Chase is a high profile baseball player and Amanda is a restauranteur, he pursues her vehemently, which sort of brings up the issue of  “No means no.” to me. But whatever, he “wore her down” and they fell in love.

I probably would’ve called the cops if a guy was being that annoying and wouldn’t take the hint.

It was an okay book by my standards, not as funny as the last one. I was really looking forward to more over the top descriptions of the vagina from her. (Hello, “luscious junction”.) I was disappointed considering these two are suppose to be raunchier than the last set of characters we saw.

I’m a dirty bird, what can I say?

Constant vigilance.
