Have you heard the rumor around campus about the locker room?
If you haven't, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. One rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.
Translation: baseball players are stupidly superstitious and believe the locker room has magical powers.
But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.
So when the girl I've fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it's time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.
The only question is, will she accept?

Let me start with I am a fan of Quinn's. I may haven't read every last book she has written, but I have read many of them. Some of them I loved, some of them I liked. I am definitely of the mind that just because I am a fan, that doesn't mean I am going to love every last thing that person writes. While I didn't love this book, I mostly liked it.
This is definitely different from Quinn's previous books I have read. It's more of a YA than anything. I am okay with that. I tend to like some YA from time to time. However, the writing in this book felt completely different too. It felt "off" at times. I am still not completely sure where I land on this book as a whole.
I am just going to throw it out there. I didn't like Emory. I felt nothing for her. Her character was too rooted in being hurt. It grated on my nerves. I found myself rolling my eyes and shaking my head at her more times than not. She is such a drama queen over everything. Poor Knox. He should have just walked away from her.
I liked Knox. His persistence won me over. Although I could have picked a better heroine for him to chase than Emory. He is the perfect hero in any form of romance novel. I can't say enough good things about his character.
Knox and Emory together just wasn't something I was really rooting for by the end of the book. Maybe towards the beginning. But, as I said before, Emory ruined that one for me. I didn't feel their connection or their attraction. Well, I felt Knox's, but I didn't understand it.
I am sure that there will be many readers over the moon about this book. It's a cute read, for the most part. It moves at a great pace, has a great plot, and a few funny parts. I just wasn't overwhelmed with this one.
