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?
When I started reading The Locker Room, I was like YES! Another hilarious Meghan Quinn contemporary romance. It had me laughing out loud from the prologue. That made me even more excited to be reading this book.
The Locker Room was such a fun book. Knox Gentry might just be my favorite Meghan Quinn hero yet. He made this book with his sweet but cocky ways. He knew who he was and what he wanted and he went for it. Knox’s determination to win Emory’s heart was so cute. I loved everything he did to show her a relationship between them would be amazing.
Emory was a great character, too. She was a thinker. Emory took chances, but she also knew when to take a step back and look at a situation. I loved that Emory didn’t just give into Knox’s wooing. She put up an entertaining fight against his attention and I loved every minute of it!
The development of Emory and Knox’s relationship was this quick slow burn. (I know that doesn’t make much sense, but it will once you read the book. 😉 ) The time they took getting to know each other was cool. It really felt like a real relationship developing. I loved them together.
Another thing I loved was their friends. They were the ride or die type. I’m really hoping Meghan Quinn makes this a series and Knox’s friends get books. I wouldn’t mind if Emory’s friends did, too.
I only had one big issue with this book and that was the turn it took at 82%. I can’t decide how I felt about what happened. I liked it up to a point and then I was just frustrated for a minute. Then, things got back on track but at a speed that didn’t feel like it went with the rest of the book. I still liked and enjoyed reading it. I guess I was just hoping for something different.
The Locker Room was still a great read, though! I don’t want to make it sound like I didn’t love it. I did! It was so funny and sweet. I know people are going to be happy reading it. It’s classic Meghan Quinn. Like I said, I’m really hoping it becomes a series.
