Audiobook Review: The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich
Performed by Katie Schorr

From New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Evanovich comes
another rollicking, sexy story of just how far a couple will go to find true love-- and keep it sizzling!

When pro baseball player Chase Walker first meets restaurateur Amanda Cole, it's love at first sight. But while Amanda can't help noticing superstar with the Greek-god build, he doesn't have a chance of getting to first- of any other- base with her. A successful entrepreneur who's built her business from scratch, Amanda doesn't need a Prince Charming to sweet her off her feet. But Chase as charm and  heart, as well as hunky good looks, and he isn't about to strike out in this courtship. His hopes rally when Amanda discovers that squeaky-clean Chase has a few sexy and very secret pregame rituals that turn the smart, headstrong woman into his number one fan.

Then a tabloid and a hidden camera threaten to turn the love of a lifetime into just another late-night punch line. 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.

I picked up the audio version of The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich last week and fell in love. I was a fan of Big Girl Panties in both the print and audio edition, and I was intrigued to read/hear the back story of how Chase- Logan's best friend from Big Girl Panties and his wife Amanda became the amazing couple that we were introduced to in Big Girl Panties.

First off let me say that the narrator this publisher picked was PERFECT for this book. Katie Schorr, gives  such a strong voice to Chase, a very alpha male, superstar with a very big personality. She also makes Amanda Cole the perfect feminine counterpart. Sometimes when listening to audio books when a narrator tries to be both the male and female lead it just doesn't work. It works so well with this story that at times I felt like I was listening to two separate people.

Chase is ever the gentleman and Amanda is a good girl that discovers her naughty side with his help. Amanda isn't used to living her life under the public microscope so when the going gets tough will Chase... chase Amanda, or will the media succeed in destroying their love.

I really enjoyed this story. If you are a fan of audio books in general I recommend grabbing this audio book. I also think if you've already read this book you could enjoy the audio version as well. For me sometimes an audio books can be like reading a book all over again for the first time, and that can be a truly memorable experience.  Also, I have to say  I was surprised with some other  reviews I had read, I found that people either loved it or hated it. But, then again I remember reading the same types of reviews for Big Girl Panties and that was quite possibly one of my favorite reads last year.  After reading & listening to two books by Stephanie Evanovich I have to say that I am a fan of her writing style and the stories she tells. I for one will be on the lookout for anything this author publishes!
