Virginia Miller is disappointed when her friend Nadia Gorla didn't win her tournament, so she decides they need to drown their sorrows. The next morning Virginia finds herself in some hot water due to her alcohol induced shenanigans. However, when she recieves some bad news from her boss, Nadia is there to comfort her. While Virginia is a bit nervous to begin a relationship with her mentor, she has had a crush on Nadia for a long time.
If you're looking for a quick f/f read with a bit of tennis and locker rooms thrown in, this is the short for you!
*I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Embarrassed by her own behavior, Virginia’s point of view is highlighted with a solidy defined voice and feels wholly appropriate. Her own concerns about offending Nadia when she reveals her feelings have her hesitant and awkward, which is endearing. When these two finaly DO act on their attraction, their connection is incredibly sexy and hot, with the inset of Virginia’s thoughts and desires adding to the steam. My only complaint is the over-reaction to the twist in the story.
Virginia’s behavior at the party after the US Open was out of character, and when the reasons are explained, I found her overreaction highlighted her youth and immaturity, and felt more than slightly preachy. The situation was horrid, but one would expect that reaction IF the plan had succeeded, and not so much for someone who escaped without injury. It did, however, serve to show more of Nadia’s character and emotional connection. A hot and steamy short that gives an insight into their lives and concerns, you don’t have to be a sport fan to enjoy this.
I received an eBook copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Poor Virginia is a bundle of nerves. Some of the things she worries about are absolutely legitimate, but there were a few times when I wanted to give her a hug and tell her to try assuming the best about what other people are thinking instead for while. She’s the kind of character this fellow worrywart can’t help but to sympathize with due to how much detail was packed into every one of her internal monologues. Figuring out how to shut down those unhelpful thoughts isn’t easy, but it’s sure nice to know that you’re not the only one trying to tune them out!
The first sex scene caught me by surprise. I knew it was coming eventually, of course, but it felt premature due to everything else that is going on as well as the serious nature of the scenes that sandwich it. Delaying it until certain subplots found their resolutions would have earned this book a much higher rating.
Speaking of subplots, I wasn’t expecting to find so many of them in this piece. Each one adds depth to Virginia’s backstory and personality. It was entertaining to see how they all eventually tied together. While they could have been expanded into a full-length novel, they worked just as well in a novella of this length. There is definitely room for a sequel, though, if Ms. Felthouse ever decides to write one.
Sweet Spot was a fun ride. This is a great choice for anyone in the mood for a well-developed tale whose secondary story lines are nearly as interesting as the main event.

Lucy brings us back to the famous Los Carlos Tennis Academy in California that was in Grand Slam. This was a great short story but I was a little sad because it was just getting good when it ended. Virginia is a transfer from London coming to America to maker her tennis skills much better by attending the academy just like Travis Connolly did. Virginia is a rising star but the only thing she really has on her mind is Nadia. Nadia is also a tennis pro at the academy. Virginia is torn because she doesn’t know which team Nadia bats for. She is afraid that she will make a fool out of herself if she doesn’t like women.
It is a good thing that Nadia notices Virginias lingering looks or some steamy hot shower action would have never happened. I am not sure how Lucy always comes out with such good stories. I hope we see another story from this academy soon. There are a few characters left that need their own story. I received this book as a gift from the author.
This is a short, sweet, sexy romance. It was a quick and fun read
I tend to prefer a lot of plot, even in romance and erotica. Sweet Spot delivers a pleasantly surprising amount of interesting storyline for such a short work. Another thing I enjoyed was that although there is good, steamy sex, it doesn't overbalance the rest of the story.
There were only two disappointments with this work. First, the women in the story fit what I call the "acceptable lesbian" stereotype--feminine-but-not-girly, athletic, and attractive even by men's standards. I prefer to see a bit more diversity in both body type and along the gender-expression spectrum. Second, the sex had a few too many erotic cliches, such as "tongues battling" and a whole lot of female ejaculation. Again, some diversity in sexual experience would be nice.
Even so, the characters are likeable and the story is cute. I definitely appreciated the side of social justice delivered in the second half of the novella. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to checking out other works by Ms. Felthouse.
