BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped.

Okay, that might not be the headlines in the newspaper this morning, but it's the reality of my current situation.

It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley. She got a new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I've known the girl since I was five,

The Change Up is another one of Meghan Quinn's baseball books, and I can't get enough of them! I was so ready for the bad boy of baseball, Maddox Paige's book.

Maddox plays for Chicago and he has a reputation of being a hot head and bad boy. But with his best friend, Kinsley, he's a big softy. When Kinsley needs a place to stay in Chicago, Maddox offers his place to her without even thinking twice about it. Maddox and Kinsley are definitely opposites, but they work. They have been fr

It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend. She got a new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I've known the girl since I was five, what harm would it be to have her stay at my place for a while?

Can you guess? Total disaster. This is the story of how I fell in love with my best friend.

And I will do just about anything to keep her as mine…anything.






Maddox Paige is the notorious bad boy pitcher of the Chicago Rebels. We only started to get a glimpse into this tender soul in the previous book, ”The Trade”. Maddox grew up in a toxic environment, thanks to his abusive alcoholic father. Having endured his father’s rage for so many years has left an imprint on him. It’s why Madd

Ladies be prepared because Maddox is going to STEAL YOUR HEART. I am not even exaggerating in the slightest either. This man is pure ALPHA GOODNESS!

Hehehe, I'm going to shamelessly admit that it was the cover model that drew me to this book.

Not bad, for my first Meghan Quinn book! I really liked Maddox. He's my type: quiet, confident and private. AND he's an artist too! A man who draws? Where can I find one?

But Kinsley though? Far out, she was so annoying! I'm all for being an environmentalist, adopting pets and being vegan... but she was so damn pushy about it (yup, she's that preachy vegan) and so insensitive to other people's boundaries.

Over the top pushy,frustrating, no respect for others boundaries and life choices heroine. Hero is ok, but I wasn't thrown off my feet by him.
I have all the respect for vegans, vegetarians and anything people choose as their life style,but I felt like every conviction and life choice Kinsley had was the only correct one and Maddox had to go with it. I saved some highlights to prove my point: she made him eat vegan food even if she saw he didn't pa

Maddox Paige can get it!! He’s ruined me for all other book boyfriends in this series!

Gahhhhh! I’d been waiting, hoping, praying, and begging for Maddox’s story since we first met him. I knew it’d be something special and Meghan Quinn did not disappoint!! From this smoking hot cover to the amazingly touching story inside, The Change Up was a surefire winner! Meghan Quinn hits another home run!

I WAS SO EXCITED TO READ THIS I KNEW MADDOX WOULD HAVE HIS OWN BOOK!! However, I couldn’t quite connect to the characters and I didn’t feel the connection between Maddox and Kinsley which was disappointing. I might give this book another chance at a later date.

there is so much wrong with both leading characters
sure I wanted to read about the bad boy Maddox we see mentioned in previous books, especially The Trade but boy oh boy..
wtf!!??!!
so if you care about animals and the environment, we can assume you are a good person
and if you are vegan, you are quirky and it is okay to have it your way of highway ???
aaand it is so funny when someone rummages trough your stuff and throws them away because you silly are living the wrong way...

Meghan Quinn hits another home run with this one. The The Change Up is Maddox Paige’s story and I fell for him hook, line and sinker. I’ve been waiting for Maddox’s book since he was first introduced. This brooding bad boy of baseball has been on my list of anticipated reads and I could not be happier with this story. This is a friends to lovers story that ticked the boxes for me.

The friendship between Kinsley and Maddox was one of my favorite parts of this book and watching it progress was a w

I'm going to have to be the odd one out here. It started out so well, and I was enjoying it so much . . .

Before it Fucked. Every. Single. Thing. Up.

I will tolerate a lot of things. Douche behavior can be chalked up to immaturity, and lack of communication skills is even a flaw that I have. I understand. Humans are imperfect. We all have flaws.

But do you know what I will not fucking tolerate?

Violence.

Ok. So here's the thing. I DO NOT like the friend-to-lovers trope. In fact, I refuse to read them. This book is an exception, I obviously knew that going in. The only reason I read it, is because I am invested in this series, and author. If one of my top-ten authors writes something, I read it.

That said, I am NOT one of those reviewers that goes all crazy googly eyed when my favorite authors release something and give it 5 🌟 no matter what. BUT, I HA

Omg! Without a doubt my favorite Meghan Quinn book and my favorite hero. My heart belongs to Maddox, and I don’t ever want it back.

Maddox. Slayer of hearts. Rebel pitcher. Too hot to touch. Lord, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this man. His love of Kinsley and all her parts just made me swoon. He accepts, appreciates and cherished her, and I couldn’t help but love him.

Kinsley was such a great heroine. I love her infectious and lovable at

The Change Up just started off hilarious. I love when a story grabs my attention right away and this one definitely did that.

Maddox was super funny. And who can resist a a guy who would do anything for his female best friend? Not this girl that's for sure.

And Kinsley was the kind of girl I could see myself being friends with. She hates mornings and thinks it's totally acceptable for coffee to be hooked up with an IV.

So with all that going for it, I read and smiled and laughed out loud.

Damn that was awesome. Since I picked up the first book in this series I have been a huge fan. They just have everything I personally could want in a sports romance. And every single one of them has added to my overall love of the series. Now i know i keep saying series and these are all written as stand alones and aren't linked as a series but they all interconnect. And even with my goldfish memory each one builds a little more on the overall story and adds extra dimensions to each couple and i

I had the hardest time choosing a rating for this one. It was so sexy and hilarious with the most loveable, tattoed, swoon worthy hero. A solid 5 stars until ~ 80% of the book. The roommate romance/ close proximity trope was done so well and this book has one of the hottest sex scenes I've read in a while. However towards the end of the book there is an unnecessary conflict that brings out such an ugly side to the hero that was just so out of character for me. It was hard to recover after that e ...more
