Back In The Game by Meghan Quinn
Narrated by Luci Christian and Jeffrey Kafer
Novella Can Easily Stand Alone
Back In The Game by Meghan Quinn incorporated all of my favorite things into one short novella. First, Meghan Quinn. Her writing never fails to suck me in and make me happy. She has become one of my top 5 authors, and Back in the Game kept her there.
Second, Banter. I freaking LOVE banter! This whole story was basically bantering from the moment single dad and professional Hockey player, Calder, met Rachel when he was dressed as Wanda the Fairy for his daughter.
Third, texting. I absolutely LOVE a book where the characters get to know each other via messages or emails. I think it’s my favorite thing to read in a book, and in this audiobook, I especially loved how the texts were read duet style!
Rachel: Oh okay then. Good morning prickly penis.
Calder: Prickly penis? Uh, how is that a term of endearment?
Rachel: I have no idea, it’s a legit the first thing that came to mind.
Meghan’s heroines never fail to make me giggle like an idiot. They are so ridiculous and fun, I want to be friends with all of them!
Back in the Game was a quick novella, originally in the Team Player Anthology. Though it fits in the Dating By The Numbers series, it very much stands alone and would be a great short intro to Meghan’s style.
The ONLY negative in this was that I so wish it was a full-length novel because it all went too quickly! BUT I will say, in the short amount of pages/time it had, there was a full story that totally grabbed me.
