In one of my Facebook groups I’m in, a group of ladies mentioned the book The Lineup by Meghan Quinn. It’s on Kindle Unlimited so of course, I had to grab it. After finishing the Bridgertons, I decided to jump right into this one. BUT I didn’t know this was the middle of a series!
Jason Orson is a professional baseball player. In fact, he’s a catcher (think Kevin Costner’s character in Bull Durham). Jason’s originally from Chicago, but had been playing in Tampa. BUT he was just traded to one of the Chicago teams. Unfortunately, Jason is a Chicago Bobbies lifelong fan and he’s been traded to the Chicago Rebels.
Dorothy Domico is a real estate tycoon. Well, sort of. She’s in the family business and has worked her way up to president of business relations. Dottie went to college with Jason and had a HUGE crush on him, but he never saw her while they were in college.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In The Lineup, Dottie has a major crush on Jason, which both of her best friends, Lindsay and Emory know about. That’s why when a date with Jason is the prize for one lucky donor, Dottie’s best friends tell her all about it. Thanks to a misunderstanding with her assistant, Dottie gets entered to win the date.
If you guessed that Dottie wins the date, well, you guessed correctly. But she tries to pass on the date. Jason, however, won’t let her since she donated ten thousand to his foundation, The Lineup. That just starts it all…
This was a fantastic book. It’s not quite on the hysterical level of a Pippa Grant book, but it is close! While Jason wouldn’t be my cup of tea (he’s too much of a goofball for me), he’s perfect for Dottie. I know there are other books in this series, but I don’t think I’ll be reading them right away. I am putting them on my TBR list. If you’re a fan of sports romances and guys who are sensitive and hysterical, I would recommend this one.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
