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?

My Review
Okay so from the beginning I couldn't get into the book. I mean I would read a sentence or two and find something else to do. Then I was like 'i really need to finish this'. So I got on with it. Everything was going fine. I thinking this is a cute. Then the spanking happened. From that point on the rest of the book was words on a page. I remained uninterested and turned off.

To you bsdm people sorry but you are not going to like this next part. Ready... What the f@*%? There is no way me and my man is in the middle of an argument and he turns around spanks me and it leads to passionate sex. I'm a grown ass woman. I don't need to be spanked into obedience. So y'all like 'so thus chick claims she don't like to be spanked.' No smart ass. I don't have a problem with that when we are both in the sexual mood. What I'm not down for is some man spanking me because he things I'm being disrespectful. He ain't my daddy. Spank me during an argument and we're fighting.

I could no longer connect with the love story after that. I'm sure others loved this book and think I had an overreaction. Maybe but when the male character wants to punish her for her behavior like it's his right and duty to correct her, no ma'am I can't get with that.
