Can you pinpoint a time in your life where you realized you are completely and utterly screwed?

I can. I got the dreaded phone call, the one every baseball player hopes and prays never comes.

I was traded. Yeah, that phone call.

Traded from my long time team of over ten years. And not just to any team, but my childhood rivals; the Chicago Rebels.

Completely and utterly screwed, right? Wrong. The trade was the least of my concerns.

I met a girl. Natalie. Man, she’s perfect.

I swore I would never get involved with anyone during the season. Too complicated. But can you believe I have zero restraint when it comes to this girl? I couldn’t get her out of my head and the more I talked to her, the more I realized I needed her in my life.

So what’s the problem? Why am I screwed? Because, Natalie, the girl I can’t stop crushing on, yeah . . . she’s married.

At least, that’s what I was told . . .

The Trade wins. It’s officially my favorite book in this series.

There wasn’t anything I didn’t love about it. Cory F-ing Potter was easily became one of my favorite Meghan Quinn heroes. I loved him from the beginning for his respect of Natalie’s relationship status and he continued to grow my impression of him. He had his moments of stupidity, but all in all he was a great person. Same for Natalie. She was sweet and her insecurities were easy to identify with. They way Corey and Natalie clicked personality wise is too cute for words. The way the got each other made for some EXPLOSIVE chemistry.

The fact that we get some very fun moments with cameos from the couples in the previous book made this book even more entertaining and fun to read. There wasn’t anything not to love about The Trade. Bravo, Meghan Quinn!

  1. I’ve still only read the second the book in this series (and that was before I discovered it was the second book lol) but I’m curious to read the others as well. All on my TBR! This sounds great 😀 Glad to hear you enjoyed it so much!

    1. Thanks! I hope you get the chance to read all the rest of them. I think you will enjoy them.

    1. Yeah, I am trying to think of ones that could work for you. Her contemporaries might be better?

    1. I get that. It’s pretty bright. The entire series is covers like these. She likes to use real people, so for some that’s not their thing.

  2. Do you have to read these books in a particular order? I am interested, but want to make sure I read them in the right order. Thanks:)

    1. I don’t think you necessarily HAVE to, but it would be more fun. Only because the characters show up in each book. I hope you like them!

    1. Thank you! It’s funny, but Knox wasn’t my favorite. I think it was because of that story wasn’t my favorite. The time jump bugged me for some reason.
