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 . . ..


My review: 5 stars!
Admittedly, I am CRAZY for baseball. It's absolutely my favorite sport, and Meghan Quinn's The Trade was perfection. Of her four recent baseball romance novels, this is my favorite and is actually my favorite book of 2020 so far too. Quinn certainly knows her baseball, and did a fantastic job writing about an unwanted player trade and the pain and drama it led to, both in the dugout and in the hero's personal life. I ate up every word! Cory was such a dream man- so sweet and kind and thoughtful and I loved how hard and fast he fell for Natalie, his teammate's brother. Luckily Natalie was not as over-the-top as her brother Jason, who we met in The Lineup (rest assured I do love him too!), but she was adorably quirky and fun and I enjoyed seeing more of their brother/sister relationship. The chemistry and banter between Cory and Natalie was fantastic and so swoon-worthy. This slow burn left me as impatient as the characters were and I loved every minute of their story- the payoff was worth it the journey. I am crossing my fingers that Quinn follows up with more baseball for her readers!
