Want to know a secret?

It's about that girl over there.
Don’t look, but she’s the one in the power suit—with the long, black hair and the serious expression, the one I’m about to go on a date with . . .

Yeah, according to her, she “accidentally” donated an obscene amount of money to my charity — The Lineup — to win said date but I found out the truth. Miss. Button Up Blouse

This is the third sports romance of Meghan Quinn’s that follows Brentwood baseball players. What makes this one different than the first two is it doesn’t follow a college ball player. Jason Orson has been out of college for some time and is a popular MLB catcher.

Dottie Domico is a powerful CEO and all around bad ass. And she’s had a crush on Jason since college, though it’s been that long since she’s seen him. Her best friend Emory is dating Jason’s friend Knox, and now that Jason

Nov 25, 2019 marked it as to-read  ·  (Review from the author)
She first saw him in college, talking to his friends. Tall, broad, sculpted by his many hours in the weight room. His personality was larger than life and she was too shy to approach him.

Now he’s a professional baseball player, she's a confident CEO, her crush is still strong, and she has a chance at winning a date with him.

Should she enter?

Romcom fans can rejoice because we have another winning romance right here with The Lineup!

I always get giddy when Meghan Quinn writes a new book because I feel like I’m revisiting friends. Her characters are gems and it’s not hard to fall in love with each one of them. In the Lineup readers will become well acquainted with Jason and Dottie. Their romance is thick with humor, the banter is hilarious, and

Oh Meghan Quinn, you absolute goddess, you. I honestly did not expect you to top Knox’s story and then you gave me Carson, and I thought for sure nobody could top Carson, but then you gave me Jason. Talk about a swoonworthy hero! I don’t think the smile ever left my face for the entire time it took me to read this sweet, charming and very funny love story. Fantastic writing and storyline, wonderful characters, oodles and oodles of humor and so much heart and soul, The Lineup was such an ...more

OH MY Jason Orson you are something else #BestDamnTatoSaladEver


The Lineup is book 3 in the brentwood baseball series and follows Jason and Dottie and although these books can be read as standalones to truly appreciate these characters I highly suggest reading The Locker Room and The Dugout first

This is a book that will make you laugh so hard you will have tears in your eyes, then it'll rip your heart out and make you cry for a whole different reason but ultimately you will be left

Once again Meghan Quinn hits a homerun with the Brentwood boys! The Lineup is Jason Orson's story. He was first introduced in The Locker Room and played a large part in the shenanigans that take place in The Dugout, which is where I first fell in love with him.

Dorothy "Dottie" Domico was first introduced in The Locker Room as Emory's best friend. Presently she's a fierce business woman who has been jipped by love. She guards her heart like a fortress until it becomes impossible not

This book.

This book drove me batshitcrazy on all levels.

I think that’s the only way to put it. It definitely hit all the right romance buttons for me, but it also had my eyes hurting from all the rolling they ended up doing because Jason and Dottie definitely conjured up their own kind of endearing, frustrating, swoon worthy roller coaster of a ride that was difficult to get off of.

Meghan Quinn has once again knocked it out of the park. And yes, I obviously had to use a baseball reference because duh, this series is about baseball players. THIS BOOK! Holy heck this book was right up my alley. The never ending laughing fits, low on drama, sweetness overload, stars-in-your-eyes romance, hot & steamy and so many swoony moments. I was living for this book and especially for Jason and Dottie.

His hands immediately grip my jaw and before I can give it a thought, his lips descend onto mine, claiming my mouth the way I’ve always dreamed of. There’s no humor in his kiss. No fumbling. It’s as if this has been the kiss I’ve been waiting for my whole life, the one that would alter my world forever.

Jason Orson aka ”Big Daddy Boo-Boo Bear” and Dottie Domico aka ”Witty Wench” are my absolute favorite couple in this series!! Meghan

Oh Jason......I think you just might have knocked Knox out of the top spot of my favorite Brentwood boys (it's such a tough choice on who I love more!).

Good heavens, this man was so sweet and charming and utterly ridiculous at times, but that just added to his appeal. And watching him flip that switch from his goofy persona to an alpha male - so hot!! Dottie - she definitely needed someone like Jason in her life. He made her laugh and not take life so seriously. He showed her how to have fun

5 LINEUP STARS!! I loved this book!!! Jason is EVERYTHING....He is perfect in everyway, so sexy, a baseball player, funny and sensitive. Dotty is beautiful and strong, her and Jason are so different. I could not get enough of their story, I devoured this book. Meghan Quinn is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. You definitely need this Book, so go ahead and download.

Reviewed by Robin sensitive hunk of man, you! I loved this crazy over the top theatrics and needy man who wore his heart on his sleeve. So deeply loyal and dedicated to good causes. And then there’s jaded Dottie. Once burnt and a million times shy. If it were me, I’d have ran far, far in the other direction. But that’s where my sweet Jason takes this story on a hilarious journey to break down her walls. Mix

The Lineup by Meghan Quinn was everything I was hoping for and more.

I loved everything about this book, I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. The scene in the woods is one I will never forget, I'm smiling while writing this lol

The Lineup made me laugh, smile, swoon and a little sad but overall it filled my heart with love and I'm so happy Meghan gave us Jason and Dottie's story

Meghan Quinn’s latest baseball contemporary romance The Lineup is rom-com at its finest.

Dottie Monico had the biggest crush on Jason Orson when they were in college. Yet they never met even though they hung out with the same friends. Now that Dottie is a powerful executive ready to take her father’s place at the helm of the family’s business, she has no time for silly crushes much less looking up pictures of the best and sexiest catcher in the country nor his delectable derriere.

Dottie Domico is a take no prisoner’s kind of woman, she helps run her family’s company and takes great pride in her business. However even though she has a tough exterior, she has a heart of gold and regularly donates to charities. There is one charity she didn’t plan on donating to, but one mix-up and the donation has been sent and then a date has been won. A date with none other than Jason Orson, a major league catcher and a guy that Dottie has crushed on since college.

Meghan Quinn has done it again with The Lineup!! Another HOMERUN!!!

Jason Orson is one of my favorite male characters. He is over the top, he knows he is over the top, he feels strongly about everything he does and when he decides it's Dottie Domico he wants, there is no stopping him.

Jason and Dottie went to college together. She knew about him because she went to baseball parties but he never knew about her. Jason is a professional baseball player now back in Chicago after a trade. He moves

No filter, absolutely no filter in the man, “your boobs,” I answer honestly. “Want me to stare at something else?” Apparently Jason is old fashioned, “excuse me, but you’re the one trying to stroke my ***k before dinner is served. I was just trying to give you a chance to sober up.” I really liked Jason, I loved that the man was basically a big child.

Let me start off by saying I laughed A LOT!!!! Sometimes to the point I thought I was going to wake up my husband. I absolutely love Meghan Quinn's humor. Jason and Dottie, I really enjoyed reading about these two. They seemed to bring out the best in each other and had great chemistry. Jason is your next book boyfriend. I LOVED him!

Meghan has done it again with this delightfully funny romance that will leave you breathless. And when I say funny, I mean it, DO NOT read this at work as you will laugh out loud and then you must explain yourself to those around you. I caught myself on multiple occasions laughing to myself while reading this, completely lost in the world she has created.

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

I don't really know how to review this one. The main reason? Jason and Dottie drove me nuts most of the time. It's not that I didn't like them. It's just, there were so many little things that irritated the hell out of me about their situation, or certain things they one or the other would do.

Jason is a really sweetheart, and I liked that. But he was also really annoying at times, because what on earth goes on in his head? He

Laugh out loud hilarious! I'm not sure you are ready to meet Jason Orson. He is so over the top it's ridiculous! You may have gotten a glimpse of him if you've read The Locker Room or The Dugout, but nothing can prepare you for what's in store. He is a sensitive soul that has no shame. He isn't afraid to show some tears or get all touchy feeling with his emotions... even around the other guys. And his biggest pride and joy? His potato salad. Yup, you've read that right. Not his status as one of ...more

Oh Yeah! Quinn is batting a thousand with this latest book in her Baseball heroes! She has covered all the bases with angst, laughs - so many laughs, but also compassion, tenderness and understanding. I personally feel this has the same vibe I got from The Mother Road, classic Quinn brilliance.

Jason and Dottie are in a league of their own and right of the bat I loved Jason, hard! He is quirky, but oh so loveable. I cherished the way he looked at life and his sensitive side but he could also

Jason is a hoot!

My first book ever where I can only describe the guy as Sassy. How refreshing, I loved Jason, boy did this guy make me laugh.

I can't say I saw Jason as hot or sexy, this was something new for me. Jason reminded me of a stereotype gay guy or the camp man friend who is one of the girl's.

Jason's comments and ways had me How long with laughter he's annoying yet cute, basically he's a little bit marmite.

Jason though despite his ways is very much straight, very much a hot blooded

Let me start this review by saying JASON IS MINE!!!!! He is my favorite out of all these awesome men. Dottie is bad ass too!

Their story is unforgettably hilarious! From the opening chapter, I knew I would be laughing hard and I did....A LOT! The visuals of certain scenarios literally had tears coming out of my eyes. Jason is truly one of a kind and his antics are the best.

On top of laughing so hard my chest hurt, my heart was full blown swooning. I love Dottie and Jason's relationship. No

No author makes me laugh as hard or swoon as hard as Meghan Quinn. Hands down this story had me laughing out loud the most!

This is Jason and Dottie's story. And what a story it is!

Dottie is a boss lady, kicking butt and taking names in a man's world! She is fierce, she is independent and because of a shambles of an ex, she has built a wall around her heart that is almost impenetrable.

All hail Jason Orson!! An adorkable man in the streets and an alpha in the sheets!! He is just everything that is

I was so excited to read The Lineup and I have to say Meghan has definitely exceeded all my expectations! Jason is now my no.1 Meghan Quinn book boyfriend :)

The Lineup is the third standalone in the series so we already know the characters from their previous stories. Jason is absolutely wonderful. To me, he seemed quite unconventional, different from the athletes we normally read about in romance stories. He is cocky, but also a big softie with a big heart...and great butt, which doesn't hurt
