What happens when your secret crush isn’t so secret anymore?
I’ve had feelings for Eve Roberts for as long as I can remember, but because she also happens to be the twin sister of my best...more
That Secret Crush is the third book in the Getting Lucky series, but the first book I have read by Meghan Quinn, and I know it’s only February, but it’s the best book I have read so far this year.
I loved Reid and Eve, they were such a great couple, the sexy times were plentiful and imaginative, and their verbal sparring entertaining, both of their strong characters complimented the other and the story-line worked really well around their ...more

many times to be compelling, and his overt sexuality gave this book a decidedly sexual feel, rather than the deeper slow burns of Griffin and ...more
Yeah...Reid's boundaries...well he has none, “all this wiggling is getting me hot and bothered. Want to do it in your car?” Reid is willing to go that extra mile to make sure his giel has a good time, “your place, after your shift tonight. I’ll be on your bed, butt-*** naked, legs spread, showing off the goods.” Reid is very proud of his meatballs, “I tried to do mirror images for you, but I’m out of practice. Don’t worry, babe, I’ll get it right one day, and you can finally say you’ve had my ...more
I’m a total sucker for small town romances, and I’m so in love with this city, I look for it on google maps every time I read a book in this series! That town is fiction, let me save you from looking for it
The third book in the Getting Lucky series brings us Reid and his story. As the title reveals, he has a secret crush. On Eve, twin sister on his best ...more
Eve and Reid have known each other forever and they have the whole "I like him, but there is no way he likes me/I like her, but there is no way she likes me" thing going on. Eve is also the younger sister of his best friend, who he is pretty much estranged from so he feels as though he can't do anything about his crush.
Then one night, a snow storm makes them both throw caution to the wind and they spend the night ...more
When you have a favourite author in any genre, it takes a bit of a toll on you when you have to say that a book they've written isn't as good as you expected it to be. It really hurts my heart to say that this third book of the Getting Lucky series, compared to the other ...more
Many thanks to NetGalley, Montlake Romance, and Meghan Quinn for an ARC in exchange for an honest book review of ‘That Secret Crush’ (Getting Lucky, Book 3). My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving an advance copy.
Synopsis: “USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn brings more humor and heart with the third novel of her Getting Lucky series: a story about breaking curses and laying your ...more
I've been counting down to the release of this book since I finished Rogan's story and it didn't disappoint! I didn't think much about Reid's character when we meet him in the first two books. He's known for not being able to take much of anything seriously, so I was surprised by how much I connected with his story. Fair warning: out of all the books in this series this has the most sex scenes and it gets pretty steamy up in this read. Reid's character has zero filter and he does lay it ...more
That Secret Crushwas an ultra sexy, highly entertaining, and a laugh-out-loud funny reading delight ...more

Small Town | Friend’s to Lovers Romance
Can I just say that I want to PERSONALLY LIVE IN PORT SNOW! I’ll take any of the Knightly brothers (they are all charmingly irresistible), live through harsh winters (I hate winter), and deal with the small-town gossip JUST TO BE THERE. Gosh, this is one fictional town I dream about. New England is a beautiful place to live because we get all the seasons and while I prefer my winters to be ...more
That Secret Crush is Reid Knightly's story, one of friends to lovers with the added complication that the heroine Eve is his best friends ...more
I think I've said it before....I really want to visit Port Snow and meet these people!! The Knightly family (including their significant others) has stolen my heart and Ms. Quinn has written them in a way that I really feel like I know them all.
That Secret Crush gives Reid his shot at love and he tries really hard to mess it up not just once...but several times. Reid has been battling self esteem issues for years. Basically, ever since he and his best friend, Eric had to ...more
For starters, this series has an amazing amount of family dynamic. The banter between the family feels life-like, and I have found on more than one occasion ...more
I love the Knightly’s. I really do.
But OMFG this one took my to hangover-ville, and not necessarily in a good way ~ at least not fully ~ because I’m exhausted in so many ways, it’s insane. I loved, LOVED some things and others...others they tried me, oh boy did they try me...hard and had me looking for a freezer, but in the end, I did like how everything turned out.
Eve and Reid. I kinda adored Eve. She’s strong, determined, sassy, compassionate and owns all that ...more
Both Reid and Eve grew up in Port Snow, as did her twin brother Eric. Reid and Eric hit it off and became fast best friends and Eve was their shadow. She was there to make sure they didn't do anything silly. Fast forward ten years and things are very different. After a failed attempt at owning and running a business ...more
Reid and Eve complimented each other so well. Reid was a little damaged after the ...more
This book is about Reid Knightly. He was an aspiring chef who co-owned a restaurant with his best friend, Eric, until their business manager ...more
That Secret Crush is the 3rd instalment in the Getting Lucky series of which I haven't read the others that came before it. You really don't need to read the previous ones to enjoy this book it's fabulous in its own right.
Reid feels that he has lost everything after he and his business partner Eric, had all the money from their Boston restaurant stolen from them and has to ...more
My biggest issue with this book was Reid. He was too weak, too long for me. I love reading about character growth and watching someone overcome their obstacles, but he didn't really do that until the end and I feel like the first 3/4 of the book was him moping and lashing out. Oh and having sex with ...more
In my last review, I deemed Rogan my favorite (although he and Griff are neck and neck) and challenged Reid and Brig to take that top spot. Boy did Reid step up to the challenge!
I don’t even know where to begin with this man. He’s difficult, grumpy, and has a chip on his shoulder the size of the Grand Canyon. His confidence has taken several hits over the years and he’s not always easy to be around. But once you chip away at ...more
Eve has had a crush on Reid forever! But he's her twin brother's best friend and that makes him off-limits. Reid and Eric open their dream restaurant together, but when their manager runs off with their money, they have to close the restaurant before it even really gets going. And along with the restaurant dying, so does their friendship. While Eric stays in Boston and continues to work as a chef, Reid tucks his tail between his legs and goes home to Port ...more
Reid was a man whose dreams had been crushed early on in adulthood. He just ...more
I laughed so hard I cried! I absolutely love the banter between the Knightly brothers.
Those group conversations had me snorting and my mascara running!
Eve: she was strong, smart and beautiful. Three things I adore in female characters. She knew what she wanted with Reid and very early on in the book let that be known. I really liked twin aspect, however, I felt like a stronger bond could have been formed, explained and twisted to tug at the readers heart.
What I loved: I’m in love with these brothers. Hot, sweet, talented, hard working. They have it all.The first two books of the series had a very slow ...more
First off, there are a lot of sex scenes. A. Lot. With Reid well-endowed (omg)... There's a reason for all that!!!
Okay, so third Knightly brother, Reid, is completely clueless of himself, is his own biggest critic, and is still so immature. But that's what we love about him. This story is about three friends who lost one another and are having trouble finding their way back to one another to become whole again. Waaay more difficulty that they think.
When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn't take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch. It wasn't until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books I came across the ...more
