The Locker Room by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Pretty darn good
I liked this take on the cocky college athlete meets studious girl whose heart has been broken in the past trope. In this case the college athlete is Knox, who is the number one baseball draft pick at the top college for baseball stars. The baseball stars that may have been drafted straight out of high school, instead go to Brentwood to learn from Coach Disik and are better off for it and end up being drafted higher after their Junior year.
Knox meets transfer student Emory at the beginning of Junior year and wants to date her immediately but she is gun shy after being cheated on and mistreated by her ex in California.
I hovered over Neil, pointed at him, and said, “Your penis has always been borderline too small, but I dealt with it because I loved you. Now, I’m happy to say I no longer have to wonder if you’re in me or not.”
I saluted the assistant and said, “I’m sure you know this, but when he comes, he has to beat his leg up and down like an excited puppy. It’s revolting.”
It takes him a while to win her over and when he finally gets her to agree to go out with him, he bets her and his friends that he can outlast her in how long they can go without having sex.
They both have pretty great control but end up blurring the lines with a lot of very hot touching, kissing, dry humping and eventually wet humping. It gets pretty steamy. The book is very good. Though it gets emotional in parts and there are parts I am not sure I like so much. But we don’t always like every scene in a book we like, and that is ok. I liked the side characters, especially his friends who were pretty funny and his Mother who was awesome.
