RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: The Dugout by Meghan Quinn

Let me ask you a question:

If someone is vying for your spot on a team and just so happens to injure you during practice, would you believe it was on purpose?

Word around campus is . . . it was no accident.

That injury has cost me everything; my starting position, my junior year—and the draft. Now, I’m a senior fresh off recovery, struggling to find my groove, until the day I run into a nervous, fidgety, girl with freckles, in the dining hall.

They call Milly Potter The Baseball Whisperer, The Diamond Wizard, and The Epitome of All Knowledge. She believes in baseball. She breathes it. She’s the queen of an infamous dynasty, but no one actually knows who she really is, and she plans to keep it that way.

One mishap in the panini line, one miscommunication in the weight room, and many failed attempts at an apology equal up to one solid truth -- Milly Potter never wants to speak to me again -- no matter how good my forearms look.

Little do we both know, she’s about to become more than just my fairy ballmother.


My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Carson is recovering from an injury and physically he is ready to play, but mentally he is struggling. As a last ditch effort he takes Milly up on her offer to tell him what he's doing wrong. Since he's tried everything else, Carson figures he may as well listen to what she has to say, so imagine his surprise when she has the answer he has been looking for.  

Carson! *heart eyes* Since Carson and Milly start off as "coach" and "player", their relationship is a delicious slow burn. Milly is somewhat of a puzzle to Carson and he finds himself wanting to put all the pieces together. When they first meet, Milly comes off as very awkward and shy, but once she starts talking baseball, she becomes a completely different person. And Carson finds himself really liking BOTH versions of her.

This book is sweet, sexy and extremely funny at times. I laughed out loud more than once thanks to Meghan's hilarious and genius text message chains that she included in this story. I loved all of Carson's friends (Hi Knox!) and hopefully we will get their stories as well. 

One last thing. Milly's. Brother Cory. OMG. I absolutely loved him and I need him to get his own book. He was not only a wonderful big brother to Milly, but he seems like an amazing guy and I want him to get his happily ever after. Soon, I hope. *crosses fingers*
