Lincoln has one of those meddling moms who is dead set on finding him a girl. He has to admit, she may actually be onto something when she sets him up with Indie, a fellow athlete at Brentwood University.

Meghan Quinn gives us yet another amazing baseball boy to love in The Setup. I first met Lincoln in The Change Up but this can easily be read as a standalone.

It’s not only a sports romance but also a fun college romance with both characters being star college athletes in their respective sports.

The Dugout + The Locker Room = The Setup

I loved the beginning of this book because it really reminded me of Carson and Milly and all the good things I loved about another of Quinn’s baseball books – The Dugout. It has great main characters you can’t help but love and fun, hilarious new side characters in their friends and roommates.

Lincoln and Indie actually hit it off but both are focused on their sports season. Knowing they are both headed in different directions after college – him the MBA and her the NWSL (national women’s soccer league), they agree to a friends with benefits relationship.

The chemistry, attraction and slow burn to their relationship was fantastic.

Things started to turn later in the book when Indie began acting off. It sort of morphed into all that I didn’t care for in The Locker Room with needless drama and time jumping (which I expected given The Change Up). Plus, I think the ending could have been more satisfying but still a good HEA.

All in all I liked it and LOVE these baseball boys! I highly recommend.
