I really didn’t think Meghan Quinn could outdo The Dugout because I loved it so much, but I am over the moon fangirling over The Lineup because it is SO FREAKIN’ GOOD.

Seriously, I loved everything about this book and am about to reread it and reread it again because I never want to leave Jason Orson.

Where to start on this amazing, well-written, hilarious, heart stopping romance….

My New Favorite Book Boyfriend: Jason Orson

Jason Orson is hands down one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends if not THE favorite of all time and that is saying something people.

He is a unicorn ladies and gentlemen-  someone so utterly perfect he can’t possibly exist in real life but man do I wish he did because I would hold on tight to this man and never let him go.

What I love most about Jason is that he is completely comfortable in his own skin. He’s not afraid to bawl his eyes out or scream like a baby when confronted with a bear.

He will talk feelings with his boys like it’s a complete girl gabfest and he will admire his sculpted body and ass along with anyone.

He’s also the hottest dirty talker who loves to cuddle after sex and despite his sensitive side he is an alpha in the bedroom, knowing what he wants and more importantly knowing what and how his partner wants and needs it.

Good God I’m fanning myself just thinking about his bedroom prowess. And I want his and Dottie’s first kiss. He’s right – when it comes to the bedroom, he does not mess around.

“Trust that I know how to not only fuck you but pleasure you so every other man is worthless to you.”

Seriously, I don’t think I could crush on this boy any harder. Not only is he one hot baseball player, a giving philanthropist and friend, he also COOKS ladies. Yes, he loves to cook and he’s freaking amazing at it.

Unicorn, I tell you, he’s a unicorn. I for one can get behind (or under) a man who makes the best dam tato salad ever.

And he wraps up this amazing package (yes, I’m referring to that one too) with the most amazing sense of humor.

I don’t think I’ll ever think of a man’s sack in the same light again after his tirade and I hope that I can find myself texting with someone like him one day.

Dottie: My Favorite Heroine

Dottie has become this tense and rigid business woman who was burned, betrayed and used by a man in her past so she’s very hesitant to date again.

She’s had a crush on Jason since they were in college, yet she fears that she’ll fall hard and get hurt again if she lets herself get close to him so she puts up a hard exterior when they are reconnected.

Her hesitation is no match for Jason however. For some reason her eye rolling and standoff attitude is catnip to him and he slowly wears down her walls.

Of course, there’s one hiccup to their happiness that occurs because of Dottie’s fear but she owns her mistake.

I love her actions and response to rectify this mistake though I will say that I bawled my eyes out seeing them both hurt. BAWLED MY EYES OUT because I love them so much.

Meghan Quinn is the Queen of Romantic Humor

If I could give Meghan Quinn all the boob squeezes in the world for writing this amazing book and these amazing characters I would (that sounds really weird but it’s her thing and if you’re in her Facebook fan group you’d know).

I have never been so sucked into a book that I’m just soaking in every page and laughing my ass off at each turn.

Her writing makes even the simplest of actions in a story so funny and unique that I’m in awe of her talent.

I mean who would describe polished silverware based on the clear view of someone’s gonads? Hilarious- and you just have to read the book to get it.

Not only do I absolutely love Jason and Dottie but now I love Lindsay and Walker as well. She has her hands full because I need their books STAT as well as Cory’s.

Please don’t leave me hanging Meghan! Given how fantastic this book is after The Dugout I just know they will be amazing.

Now that I’ve fangirled enough there is no reason not to read this book. It’s the most hilarious book I’ve read in a very long time and one that had my heart on a platter from the very beginning with these two. READ THIS BOOK!
