Table of contents

Amanda plays the ultimate game of hard-to-get but when she gives in, she falls spectacularly into giving in with her entire body and mind. After all, who knew spanking could be so much fun? I admit that I expected more, you know, sex. Flat out, good old sex. Even some BDSM maybe. Lots and lots of spanking. There are a few cringeworthy scenes involving spanking too. Maybe I did know what to say. This review will be cross-posted on my blog and on Goodreads. Jul 28, Siobhan rated it it was ok Shelves: For me, liking a book means that I remember what happens in the plot weeks after I have read it.

And so when I go to write a review of a book that I read a few weeks ago and don't remember much about the plot means that I probably didn't like it as much as others, and unfortunately The Sweet Spot is one of those books. Although I don't remember this book is detail, I do remember certain things I did and did not like.

For example I remember I did like the overall conflict of the book and how real For me, liking a book means that I remember what happens in the plot weeks after I have read it. For example I remember I did like the overall conflict of the book and how real it felt and I honestly felt like it could happen to anyone.

But sadly that was pretty much all I liked about this book. Characters are a large apart of my enjoyment of a book and with this one I felt no connectio whatsoever to any of them. I felt like they were very 2 dimentional and therefore I had no emotiona stake is wjhat they were doing or what was happening to them. I also a big fan of characters showing us who they are what what is happening to them, but in this instance there was way too much telling for me to stay interested. And to be honest, I felt like that part of the book was the weakest part. I didn't believe any of it and it felt very fake, like the author didn't do any actual research in the topic and just wanted to have it her book.

I have read these types of scenes before and I know that there more details you have, usually the better it is for the reader. In this case I felt like the author glossed over so much and that made me question the scenes in general. So overall this book was not what i expected and i felt a little confused at to what kind of romance this book was. The romance was too fast and the sex scenes were lackluster at best. I just wanted so much more than what I got. Jul 10, Marlene rated it it was amazing.

But in this book, Stephanie shows us how they met and how their relationship evolved. As with the first book, the author infuses the perfect amount of humor and wit throughout the book making it a fun, laugh out loud read.

Amanda is an independent, modern woman. With hard work and determination she can do anything she sets her mind to. But things change the night that baseball superstar, Chase Walker, dines at Cold Creek … the restaurant owned by Amanda. Of course it was obvious how handsome he was, but Amanda knows that guys like these have women hanging on them all the time.

So when he asks her on a date, she immediately turned him down. But Chase has a big secret. Will he confess it to Amanda? Or will it be a relationship deal breaker if she finds out? I loved getting to know the adorable couple in the first book and then learning how they met in the second one.

With humor and the perfect amount of spice, The Sweet Spot is the best summer book! Grab your beach bag and throw this book in. Sep 27, marcy rated it did not like it. Honestly, this book really disgusted me. Amanda is a restaurant owner who meets chase, a famous baseball player. Blah blah blah he is infatuated with her and stops at nothing to get her, despite her resistance at first.

She soon finds out that chase is obsessed with sexualized spanking and will spank her whether she likes it or not, because she swore, and he wanted her to be a lady wait, there's literally nothing different about this than 50 shades of gray It was this scene that upset me a Honestly, this book really disgusted me. It was this scene that upset me and I stopped reading right there. All Amanda did was swear at chase, because he was being a major prick, and he dragged her into his bedroom and spanked her, despite her protests, and despite her actually crying!

The next morning she is upset and confused and he doesn't apologize or CARE, all he does is freaking explain that he is an alpha male and he needs to have this control and dominance and she just so easily accepts it. I actually find this upsetting! The scene was literally domestic violence and force and it was not okay. Honestly, I had no idea this book was the same type of novel as 50 shades of gray, or there is no way in hell I would have read it.

I feel like I am losing brain cells when I read these sort of books. I guess if you loved 50 shades of gray you will like this but I personally feel like what the hell is the point of reading this type of book? I gained nothing positive from it. View all 3 comments. I enjoyed this book even more than the author's first, Big Girl Panties, which I loved. I am a married, educated, working mother and I was not at all offended by the physical sex play the couple in this story enjoys. I do not understand the outrage of some reviewers. Evanovich does not deserve the backlash about domestic abuse or misogyny.

The author has written a contemporary romance with two adorably, sweet characters. The love scenes are written as wholly consensual. Most importantly, nothing in the relationship between Chase and Amanda made me dislike Chase or lose respect for Amanda.

This book was fun from beginning to end. Listening to it as an audiobook made it more fun because the narrator's vocal inflection for Chase was sexy and true to the character. I highly recommend it and the author's previous novel as well!! Jul 23, Grace rated it did not like it Shelves: It was love at first sight for the guy Chase Walker and Amanda Cole was playing hard to get for the first few months - just to go on a date with this Walker dude who is a pro baseball player.

These 2 characters are the most self absorbed, whinny people ever written!!!! I rolled my eyes so many times and thought to myself why am I listening to this garbage. Chase's secret is that he likes to spank ladies bottom and Amanda just sort of let it happen to her and then decided that she likes it - because she loves him to so darn much.

Yes, it is that bad. So save yourself some time and skip this book.

The Sweet Spot

This is also my first book of Ms Evanovich. Sadly, I don't think I'll waste any more of my time with her books. I couldn't even finish this book. There wasn't any graphic scenes to give it the true erotica vibe, just suggestive hints, and there wasn't any good interactions between the main characters that gave me the warm fuzzies that could see them as a true romance novel couple.

Janet evanovich's daughter tries writing romantic comedies. Mostly she writes funnier versions of 50 Shades of Grey.

Great intro, great ending even And severe amounts of sexual abuse for the literary Mommy Porn fans. I would explain the story: Sep 14, Stephanie Barnes rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Romance fans, Mature Adults. Recommended to Stephanie by: I saw a review that an author I am acquainted with had left.

Already I felt a connection. I enjoy books that take place in N. Chase is a Pro baseball player. He has a dark secret. Chase knows from the beginning he is going to marry her.

He tries in many ways to get her to go on a date with him. When she continues to refuse he comes into the restaurant every evening. Eventually, she agrees to dinner. Even the minor characters are memorable. She has to get used to thinking about them as a couple. She starts to change her way of thinking. She loves Chase so deeply that she succumbs to his desire. At first she is mortified but then realizes she enjoys it.

It becomes her desire as well. Personally, I don't get the sense that Amanda is weak or abused. I think she does a lot of soul searching to determine if it's okay to be different. She is afraid that she will lose her identity because Chase will overshadow her due to his job. I highly recommend "The Sweet Spot. Jun 30, Romancing the Book rated it it was amazing Shelves: In The Sweet Spot: A Novel, Amanda is a take charge kind of woman who can spot a player a mile away.

When she catches the eye of baseball player Chase Walker, the last thing Amanda wants to do is become one of his groupies. The conversation she had with Chase about his name being an oxymoron had me laughing out loud because I could imagine the scenario so clearly. As the storyline progresses and the chemistry heats up between Amanda and Chase, it turns out that Chase has a bit of a taste for kinky action in the bedroom.

This was by no means a full-fledged BDSM flavored novel.

Instead, the author dipped carefully into the fringes, spicing up the bedroom action with some spanking. However, I found that it was integrated well into the storyline and while it was a new experience for Amanda, it was still consensual. When all is said and done, readers will have a clearer understanding of exactly what The Sweet Spot is all about.

Sep 11, Cleo rated it it was amazing Shelves: This the first novel that I've read by Stephanie Evanovich. My daughter owned the book, but I couldn't wait for her to give it to me,so I could read it. I luckily was able purchase one of the last hardcovers with the original cover photography on Amazon. Being a full-fledged Jersey Girl; born and raised and still living here, made me smile. Amanda loved her life and was quite settled. Then enter Chase who turned her world upside-down.

She loved being with him. Perhaps, he was too perfect. Chase's perfection held a secret. A secret that in the beginning Amanda questioned and struggled to live with. Yet, their relationship and love grew strong, their loyalty knew no-bounds. Then, the secret that Chase had and Amanda came to terms with took an unwanted turn and exposed each of them. Something Chase had to man-up to and one that Amanda needed to run from. Stephanie's writing and this story had me laughing out loud, sighing deeply, swooning a bit and shedding several tears.

If you haven't read this novel, I hope you will. It's now one of my favorites. Nov 02, Pauline Aguayo rated it it was amazing. I really enjoy Evanovich's writing. Usually books with too much telling and not showing bug me, but she does it in a way that gets you to the good parts of the book. I also really enjoyed seeing Amanda and Chase's origin story. They were in her first book "Big Girl Panties", and were such strong characters, I was eager to read an entire story just about them. Chase is a little macho at times, but justified in his actions Both are a little dramat I really enjoy Evanovich's writing.

Both are a little dramatic, but it's the kinda drama you expect and sort of like in a romance novel. And the romance really hits home in this story. You can feel the love build up between the two characters at a good pace, so it made everything else better too. I'm excited to get to her next book! Damn her for finding him. She turned her head away from him. Not that it mattered. He reached over and with gentle pressure turned her chin toward him. Tell me that you are not the monster. My time with you has taught me that there is more to you than the boy in those books.

I left because I feared there was no place for me in your story. And that I could not bear. What had she said? Was that possibly right? He struggled to make sense of it in his brain. Start with why you took such an interest in dark magic and go from there. Alarick said nothing at first.

Even worse, her nemesis, Endera, is making life miserable by trying to get her kicked out. One of my favorite scenes is actually the opening scene where we meet Abigail!

I love reading it to kids and talking about how well we get to know her in just a few short lines. Plus, we get to see her be bullied by Endera, which helps kids connect to her character and feel empathy for her. Abigail marched toward the iron gates of the Tarkana Fortress, holding her chin high. The other girls had been fawned over by proud mothers as they gathered their things and tried on crisp new uniforms. Newborn witchlings were left at the Creche to be raised by lesser witches like Old Nan. Mothers visited three times a year: Those days, Abigail hid in the shadows, watching as the other witchlings glowed under the attention of these strange and powerful creatures.

She came to a stop outside the entrance, gripping her small valise in one hand. Gloomy clouds had gathered in a knot overhead. Her new uniform itched her neck, and she tugged at the collar. All she had to do was take two steps, and she would be inside the gates and on her way to becoming a great witch. Today is a new beginning. Her foot wavered in the air like a dowsing rod, but before she could take the step, someone shoved her to the ground.

A lanky girl skulked alongside her. The two were part of a trio that stuck together like tree sap in summer. Behind them, a girl sailed along with her nose in the air as if she were royalty.

The most horrible witchling in the entire Tarkana coven. Endera paused to smile sweetly down at Abigail. The other girls snickered, and the trio swept on through the gates.

With several previous collections under her belt, including the Bram Stoker Award nominated, An Exorcism of Angels , she has shown herself to be a prodigious and quite prolific young author with a flair for the dark and daring, taking on subjects that some consider taboo and that other poets might balk at. Her newest collection, Brothel , is filled end to end with subjects that other poets might balk at.

In her collection, Hysteria, that muse was insanity, and in Mourning Jewelry it was, to state the obvious, mourning jewelry. In her latest collection, her muse is Madam XXX. Together, we studied pleasure, mastered pain. She showed me what Heaven could be, and I showed her what Hell was. We were the perfect combination of sadism and masochism.

In Brothel , Wytovich follows the Madam down a path of relationships and correlations between love and abuse, pleasure and pain, death and orgasm, taking us to places our minds might never have travelled on their own, painting painful, sometimes shocking, and always beautiful pictures in shades of blood scarlet, her language concise and straightforward, her imagery intensely vivid and starkly personal:. Almost gleefully, she addresses themes of abuse and humiliation and, sometimes—you can almost see her mischevous smile in these instances—revenge and redemption:.

And some of them never got up. When it comes to razor sharp wit, unapologetic violence, and steamy, sensuous, sometimes breathtaking eroticism, Stephanie M. She is a poet with a soul as old as the universe and all the tools she needs to describe her worlds to you and, in Brothel , as in all her collections she demonstrates an attribute that all great authors and poets have:
