A restaurant owner falls for a baseball hunk with a surprising secret in this breezy romance from Evanovich (Big Girl Panties, 2013).
Amanda Cole is doing just fine on her own, so she barely blinks when sports stud Chase Walker strolls into her restaurant. She’s not interested in being a baseball girlfriend, but Chase has other ideas. He’s willing to show up at her restaurant every day until Amanda agrees to give him a chance—and once she does, she falls hard. Chase is sweet, successful and pretty much perfect—but his out-of-the-box sexual preferences come as a surprise. When their private life suddenly becomes very public, the ensuing press kerfuffle makes Amanda rethink their entire relationship. Can she accept Chase for who he is, in and out of the bedroom? The answer most likely won’t surprise you, but that’s no problem. Fans of Evanovich’s debut, where these characters first appear, know the two end up together anyway. The fun comes from their journey to the altar, and there’s plenty of conflict (and more than one blush-worthy sex scene) along the way. Chase's domineering personality and preferences can sometimes make him seem more like a growling alpha male than a sexy romantic hero, but for the most part, he comes off as a loving partner. Meanwhile, Amanda’s sassy retorts, her frequently mentioned curvy figure and her believable concerns make her an appealing heroine.
A sports-filled romance full of steamy sex scenes that will please Evanovich’s fans.
