The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich

I recently read The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Evanovich. I had high hopes that the writing gene would be passed down from Stephanie's aunt Janet. Within in the first few chapters it was very clear that that the gene was definitely passed!

This story follows baseball player Chase Walker when he first meets restauranteur Amanda. At Amanda and Chases first interaction he falls madly in love with her. However, Amanda isn't that easy to persuade. The story shows Chase's quest to have Amanda fall in love.

I truly enjoyed this story. I could not put it down. I had my co-workers read it the day after I finished! We all loved it. I cannot wait to read Ms. Evanovich's first book, Big Girl Panties as well as all of her future books. She definitely has a new fan!

The One & Only by Emily Giffin

I recently read The One & Only by Emily Giffin.This story follows super football  fan Shea Rigsby. Shea has been a Walker football fan her entire life. Her best friends father is the coach of the college team. After Shea's best friend's mother passes away Shea's life changes in unexpected ways.

Although I enjoy Ms. Giffin's books this one was not my favorite. It was very sports oriented, specifically football. I am not someone who is very interested in sports, especially football. Football is a sport that I know absolutely nothing about, beyond the Superbowl has a good halftime show and awesome commercials. If it involved baseball at least I would have been able to understand the game involved. The characters and story line are very well developed. You can see the growth, love and passion that the characters possess. So do not let the sports aspect keep you from reading!
