A breakdown of the plot:
Josie Crawford, from Texas, graduated with honors with a degree in journalism. She has high hopes and dreams of becoming a reporter but is degraded to "coffee-fetcher" at the news studio where she works. When Trey Delgado from Southern California is traded to the Oklahoma Warriors baseball team, her boss, Mr. Jones, gives her the opportunity to prove that she can be a real reporter by getting an exclusive with Mr. Delgado. This becomes pretty much impossible due to the fact that she jumps Trey's bones with every opportunity but fights her attraction to him like a raving lunatic, and has more mood swings than Jekyll and Hyde. Trey is dealing with a "psycho" stalker but seems consumed with the masochistic obsession to trade one psycho for another– Josie, the terrible reporter who should really just go back to Texas and re-think her life. I know this all sounds a little cruel, but if you'd spent the day trying to digest the garbage that is Josie's dialogue, you'd be going mad, too.
But it wasn't ALL nasty horribleness. Here's a breakdown of what I liked and didn't like.
What I liked:
-Trey was sexy and fun to follow. I really liked how the book opened up and drew in my attention. In the beginning it seemed to have a lot of promise.
-I liked the physical description of the characters. It was easy to visualize them. One of my biggest pet peeves is poor character description.
-For the most part, the writing flowed well. It was easy to get into the story.
-I enjoyed seeing recurring characters from the first book. It made it seem so interconnected.
What I DIDN'T like:
-NOTHING kills a reading experience for me like a STUPID heroine. And despite the fact that Josie was feisty and fun, at first, she really began to grate on my nerves. She was so hot and cold, like major bipolar disorder going on. I understand the argument, believe me. It worked SO well in the first book. But it was like KB was recycling old tired laundry in the second, trying to re-use her plot from the first book but tweaking different aspects so that it was a "different" book.
-Josie's whining was insufferable and after halfway through the book, I kind of wanted to punch her in the throat.
-I could hardly feel any connection between Josie and Trey. It just wasn't there. There would be a little spark here or there but paled fiercely in comparison to Bring The Heat.
In short, I kind of wish I hadn't read this book because the first one was SO freaking good. If Sweet Spot had even been a fraction of how good Bring The Heat was, I would have devoured it whole. But that definitely wasn't the case.
I DO NOT recommend this book at all. Bring The Heat was phenomenal, but this? To lump this monstrosity in with the utter AWESOME GLORY that was Bring The Heat is practically sacrilegious blasphemy.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this book like the plague.
Josie is a unique individual. She dresses unique right down to her cowboy boots and cutoffs. .After lots of coffee fetching, she has a real chance of getting something in the paper with HER byline. She just has to get an interview with the resident bad boy Trey.
They start out like oil and water and end up together like strawberries and cream.
For a fun,sexy journey to their HEA. you gotta read this book!!!!
"Life keeps throwing me curveballs … but I refuse to strike out."
"Sweet Spot is a full-length bad-boy sports romance with a tiny bit of baseball and a whole lot of sexy hotness! No cliffhanger, a happy ending, and filthy-talking athletes who will melt your panties in thirty seconds or less! In fact … you should probably just leave them at the door! Intended for readers 18+ due to Kindle-melting scenes and other mature content."
This has become a fun genre that is a break from my favorite genre Paranormal fiction/romance.
Trey is often referred to as a bad boy, drunk and a playboy by the Media ... and for the most part he earns it & doesn't seem to mind too much! Until he is traded from Sunny California to Oklahoma ... ouch! To make matters worse while playing in Cali Trey embarrassed his new teams Star pitcher on his opening game ... can't wait to see how this plays out? Read it!
Josie is a journalist trying to make her mark but instead she puts her job on the line to cover baseball! As if the whole situation isn't bad enough ... she ends up on TV looking like the Daisy Mae Duke of Sports reporters. How did that happen? Will she ignore her instincts and let her guard down around Trey? Read the book to find out how the whole thing plays out!
When I want a fun, light & steamy read ... I read a book like this.
That said this was a great Book! The characters were well developed, the struggles seemed real & I'm personally invested. It was also a steamy read!
Looking forward to the next book!
