BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped. Okay, that might not be the headlines 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 got a
new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I’ve known the girl since I was five, what harm would it be to have 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 photos 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 . . .
Meghan Quinn has never disappointed, and always delivers a book packed with steaminess and comedy.
➖ Bad boy hero, check
➖ An awesome heroine with a big heart, check

➖ Best-friends turned lovers, check check check
Maddox, the bad boy of baseball, and Kinsley have been best friends since they were five. And when Kinsley gets a job in Chicago, Maddox offers her his home until she gets her feet on the ground. Only he has a few ground rules:
No bringing over strangers.
And NO four-legged friends.
What could possibly go wrong? With one of the hottest men in baseball and a woman to die for. Yeah, what could go wrong?
“Ahhh, Maddox.” Before I can even ask her why she brought Clyde with her, she throws her arms around me and pulls me into a hug. “Oh my God, did you make more muscles?” Make more muscles. Only Kinsley would phrase it that way.
I’m a fan of best friends to lovers romance but only if they’re done right. I hate when two people have been friends for so long and then one day, BAM, they’re in love. Meghan Quinn, however, knows just how to write friends to lovers. Nothing felt forced or uncomfortable between these characters. Their love for each other was so unique and had me turning the pages with a fucking smile on my face.
Cory just laughs, a good hearty laugh while he stares at me in disbelief.
“What?” I ask.
“Never in a million years would I have guessed that Maddox Paige, the bad boy of baseball, is a fucking softy with a heart. Nor would I have ever bet that you would come to me for girl advice.”
I loved Kinsley’s, big heart. Her love for animals and the world was amazing. The steam in this book is not what we’ve read in Meghan Quinn’s previous books. I will not spoil anything, but you’ll know when you read that one particular scene. I had to pick my jaw off the floor.
The side characters were great, especially Linc, Maddox’s friend. He had me laughing my ass off with his dialogue. I loved the friendship between all the guys and how they would give Maddox advice on how to win over Kinsley.
This book is one of Meghan Quinn’s best work. If you’re looking for steamy friends to lovers romance with great characters, this is it for you!
