Publisher's Summary

Breaking news: The bad boy of baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped.  

Okay, that might not be the headline in the newspaper this morning, but it's the reality of my current situation. It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley. She’d gotten a new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I've known the girl since I was five, so I figured there wouldn't be any harm in having her stay at my place for a while. 

Ha! Total disaster. 

Now instead of going out every night with my teammates, I'm couch surfing and sketching endless portraits of my best friend...but that's the least of my concerns. The disaster, you ask? I'm rapidly falling head-over-cleats in love with my best friend, my roommate, and my number one fan. 

And she has no idea....

Female lead ruined it!

I wanted to love this story but the overbearing, whiny female lead ruined it. I hoped she’d change a bit over time, so I stuck with the book but unfortunately she stayed annoying til the end. This could have been a great love story if it had a stronger female character

Good and Bad

There’s some really enjoyable aspects in this story. But I’m completely weirded out by the depiction of a bunch of fist fights in baseball. Baseball. It’s not hockey people. Also, the female leads fear that he’s going be abusive is unreasonable. They act like he’s the only one who is so affected by his past, but I think SHE is more negatively impacted by his childhood. Just because the dude is angry and looks like his dad doesn’t mean he’s going to act like His dad. We all get angry sometimes. We all yell sometimes. Plus, the catalyst for “boy loses girl” is unrealistic. No person, even a little bit sane, wouldn’t turn around and say “did you invite him here” and no girl, upon not being asked wouldn’t say “hey, I didn’t invite him here.” Seriously, why do authors quote grown ass adults like teenagers with zero basic communication skills!?

Almost perfect!

Okay, holy crap! First, congrats Meghan Quinn, first book I have enjoyed THAT kind of sex scene. 😲👏🏼😏 Now, onward... I appreciated the emotional vulnerability of Maddox but Kinsley cried way too much and was super pushy which made her kinda dis-likable. I started with this story so I am going back to the first two. They weren’t listed as a series but more like stand-alones and I would have enjoyed reading them in order, the only thing about that is I didn’t do my research and REALLY wanted to listen to Connor Crais read to me 🔥🔥🔥, so the fault is on me. Still, this was some good story telling! Highly recommended!

This is a skip…

This book had some big misses. The female character Kinsley is annoying. Im all for small eco friendly changes, but dumpster diving in parks and taking it home is crazy.

I honestly don’t think Maddox really likes/loves her, its more of a codependency. When he gets mad he’s super critical of his “one true love” and bff for 20+ years. He criticizes everything about Kinsley: her recycling, her persistence, says shes her mother, says she never listens etc, and it becomes verbally and almost physically abusive. Then the reader is supposed to be on his side, root for him to win her back? He didn’t even care enough to stop his drinking and think of a grand gesture to make it up to her. His FRIENDS had to develop a plan. He couldn’t even really put in the effort to apologize. After all that, Kinsley easily forgives him? What?!?! Its just awful.

Maddox is a keeper…

Kinsley is … not. I have to agree with other reviewers, when they write about Kinsley’s irritating character. I could put up with a lot of what she did, which was rude IMO, but she just got on my nerves towards the end. For someone who is all “love makes the world go round”, she can hold a grudge like no other.

Male narrators impersonation of Kinsley didn’t help my irritation with her character either.

Overall I liked Maddox’s character and I liked his developing friendships with Cory, Jason and Lincoln. I just wish Kinsley’s mom had been successful in breaking up their friendship when they were younger… 🤷🏻‍♀️

The Change Up

I have to say that I was ready to bawl my eyes out with the way Maddox, the male lead, treated Kenzlie throughout this book. He worshipped her. Then my heart was broken for her when he turned on her and out of the blue treated her like she was nothing to him.

This was a really great storyline, but has twist and turns that will keep you on your toes. The characters are strong, yet have past that come back to haunt them.

I wish that narrators would read all female or male parts as to their natural voices and not try to be something they are not. It takes away from the actual story when they do so.

I push through because the characters and storyline are so great.

Fantastic story!!

Magnetic. Electrifying. Two opposites with an undeniable attraction that you won’t be able to put this book aside. The chemistry and banter between Kinsley & Maddox is angonizingly delicious. The perfect, take your breath away, best friend-to-lovers romance. Quinn delivers steamy chemistry with a whopping, emotional punch. Each story/series centers around the importance of strong friendships as well as strong romantic relationships, and I LOVE that particular theme!! Kelsey Navarro & Connor Crais do an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions, attitude and personality.

Fabulous listening

Maddox and Kinsley were a fabulous listen.
Maddox was completely different to what I expected. I mean, I had only had glances before and although he seemed like a decent enough guy... I did have my doubts. But, he was so much more than I expected.

Sweet, thoughtful, completely and utterly head over heels for Kinsley.
Sure, there was the expected drama. The inevitable mistake that led to an epic falling out, then the redemption.
Although Kinsley annoyed me at times, I ended up quite enjoying her by the end.

Kelsey and Connor did a stellar job of bringing this book to life.

Loved++ Maddox and Kinsley!

Loved the Narration and the Characters in this book so much!
This was a five star +++ book for me, I loved that it was 13+ hours and I was left wanting more.
I really enjoy Meghan Quinn books and this was my favourite thus far.
If you enjoy a sport's romance with a friends to lovers story like me then you'll swoon over this book!!
