The Sweet Spot: A Novel by Stephanie Evanovich
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?
