Man, I love these Knightly brothers. As good as they are on their own, getting all of them in each book is even better. They are exactly what you would think a group of brothers would behave like. I also love they way they include their sister in their group texts. They have all been very entertaining in this series.

The way Reid can't seem to keep his hands off of Eve was just hot. The best part about their relationship was how much they just seemed to adore each other. You can really see both o

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 nonexiste
This is my first exposure to this author, and I can't say that this book is enticing me back for more. The characters are rather sex-obsessed. They've been friends since childhood. She's the twin of his best friend whom he fell out with after their acclaimed restaurant went bankrupt following the betrayal and grand larceny by their business manager. The aftermath of this was nasty and the friendship between the guys never recovered. Reid moved back home to work in the family business instead. Fo ...more
5 - "Big dick and likes to cuddle… Wow." Stars!

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 relationshi

That Secret Crush is the third book in the Getting Lucky series. It follows the four Knightly brothers struggle to find love after being cursed in New Orleans by a palm reader to have doomed relationships. This one follows Reid, and his best friend, Eric’s twin sister, Eve. Reid is an absolute hot mess. He’s a chef, whose shared restaurant with Eric failed a couple years ago, and he basically has never cooked again, and never really moved on from that failure. He’s catching lobster on a boat, pr ...more

Reid and Eve have been friends since childhood. Eve is the sister of Reid’s best friend Eric. Reid and Eric had a fall out following a fail restaurant business. So, Reid moved back home to work on his family’s business, the same town where Eve is currently residing. The two have been crushing on each other for a while but they both kept it a secret aside from a lot of flirting and taunting. Reid is a dirty talker with no brain to mouth filter which made him quite a horndog the way he talks to Ev ...more

All the feels...

I love stories like Eve and Reid's...a few tears, thoughtful introspection and serious belly laughs. It was good to visit the Knightly family again. Can't wait for Be it's book.

I so enjoy the Knightly brothers. Each one is utterly swoon-worthy in their own way. Reid and Eve’s story falls within the brother’s sister/best friend-to-lovers category.

In the town of Port Snow everyone knows everything about everyone. Gossip spreads faster than a wildfire, so it’s crazy the these two had no clue about the crush they each held for the other although it was apparent to everyone else.

Their friendship quickly transforms into much more and it’s everything they could have hoped f

Book 3 in the Getting Lucky series and it is a great addition. Loved this story. A friends to lovers’ romance and that is my jam. Love this type of romances. So much fun watching these couples fall in love and Eve and Reid were no different. Loved it. Eve and Reid were really good together. Great chemistry. I needed more, I didn’t want the story to end.

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

The Knightly brothers are back!!! This time...Reid and Eve! In true MQ fashion, the humor and banter (which are things I love in Meghan’s books). Still trying to beat the “curse” and screwing things up royally, Reid and Eve take us on a roller coaster ride.

I’m enjoying this series so much and I’m ready for more of this family!!!
I need to give this 6 stars! I've loved this series from the start because these Knightly brothers are IT. They are funny, sexy, sweet, family crazy and did I mention funny, well they are actually hilarious.

Reid is all in with the curse business. Not only in love but with his love of coming, losing his restaurant, his best friend .. Eve is the twin to said best friend Eric. She's secretly crushed on Reid her entire life. But she's not willing to lose the person closest to her with outing her fe
Book 3 in the Getting Lucky series is, in my humble opinion, the best so far.

This book focuses on elusive brother Reid. We don’t know a ton about Reid from the first two books, other than he’s been dealt a rough hand. Reid started a restuarant with his best friend, Eric, and was swindled out of all their money, therefore losing the restaurant. He came home to Port Snow, Maine a broken man. BUT he wasn’t a brooding jerk like his two brothers, Griffin and Rogan.

That Secret Crush is a brother’s best friends, friends-to-more romance between Reid Knightly and Eve Roberts, who have both had secret crushes on one another for years.

Reid is lost, a failed chef whose dream of running his own restaurant were destroyed two years before, and he hasn’t cooked since. He has a chip on his shoulder, bitter at having to return to his hometown of Port Snow with his tail between his legs, becoming a fisherman and working at the family business. Adding on to the family l

While I enjoyed this third entry in the Getting Lucky series, it wasn’t as strong as the previous two books for me and didn’t have the same sexy-sweet emotional pull. Reid had experienced a big career setback a couple years previously and took a serious punch to his self-confidence. While that was understandable, he tended to wallow in his feelings of failure and self-loathing and it got old. On the other hand, Eve was a rock star. She was a woman who knew her own worth and was not will

Reid and Eve have the BEST friends to lovers romance. This is signature Meghan Quinn, with hilarious antics, sexy banter, low drama and high on feels.

These two have amazing chemistry, it was slow burn and I ate it up!

The Knightly family are such a fun bunch. I love them and their easy comrade with each other.

I loved the growth with Eve and her brother, Eric. It’s a journey all on it’s one and added so much to this story.

The end left me needing more and absolutely desperate for Brigs

4 1/2 "Cuddly" Stars...

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 c

If white male privilege turns you on this book is perfect for you

Let me be very clear. I hated everything about this book. Most of it enraged me and one scene disturbed me. The message the author sends to women in this book is truly disgusting. That message being that it doesn't matter if the man you're with doesn't respect you. It doesn't matter if he takes out all his frustrations on you. It doesn't matter if he gets upset when you try to have a conversation with him that doesn't revolve arou

Port Snow and the Knightly Brothers have quickly become beloved characters of mine! Meghan Quinn delivers yet another fantastic story with sexy Reid Knightly and his best friend’s sister, Eve.

Reid and Eve, along with the rest of the Knightly clan, deliver one incredible laugh out loud story with a punch to the gut when a misunderstanding threatens to tear this couple apart. Their chemistry is INSANE and just jumps right off the pages! I think Reid and Eve have quickly become one of my favorite c
At 23-years old, Reid and his best friend Eric opened up their own restaurant after culinary school, but right when it was getting to its prime, Eric and Reid lost everything. Their friendship wasn’t the same anymore; Eric moved away from Port Snow, while Reid stayed behind and vowed never to cook again.

Now 3-years later, Reid is a lobster fisherman, a job he doesn’t love but makes ends meet. Eric is still living in Boston, but at least Reid still has Eric’s twin sister, Eve, to call a friend.

A small-town story with the penultimate Knightly brother

There is just something about these Knightly boys that they get into the depths of your soul.

Reid doesn’t know his own self-worth and is his own biggest critic. He no longer has the spark to do what he used to, he lost it all and wants no part of that again... until one night with Eve. Reid finally gives in to his secret crush on Eve and makes the move. Their connection is explosive in a good way. Being childhood friends means he knows all

So this was one of my Quarantine purchases. Partly because I hadn’t had the chance to read it early because I think it came out in the midst of the second wave of the SmartyPants Romance book launches. But I knew I had to read it, and I needed to read it before the next book comes out in case I got the chance to read that early. I loved Reid. I really want a funny guy like him, or like Jason in Quinn’s baseball series. She writes the best funny guys. But he got a little irritating when he kept h ...more

Meghan Quinn is one of my favorite authors of romantic comedy, and the Getting Lucky series is turning out to be one of my favorite series of hers. The Secret Crush is the third book, and it is a friends-to-lovers/best-friends-sister romance with humor, heat and heart. Reid had a falling out with Eve’s brother—his childhood best friend—but has continued his friendship with Eve. Both have secretly crushed on the other, and the sparks erupt when they decide to act on their attraction one night. Th ...more
