The Catching Kind by Caitie Quinn
I really enjoyed this one! The Brew Ha Ha series has quickly become a favorite of mine and I can't wait to read more. There better be more!
Hailey is a fun character, I loved her spunk. She is a YA author and it was fun to see that side of things, I would totally read her books. ;) She is thrown for a loop when her editor gets her roped in to pretending to be the girlfriend of the super famous bad-boy baseball player, Conner Ryan. The two could not be more opposite and the sparks fly from their first encounter. I liked that Hailey wasn’t afraid to be herself and to put him in his place. I wasn’t sure if Conner could win me over, but he does. I ended up really liking them together, great chemistry. What I liked most is the friendship that grows between them, I love relationships built on friendship and then grow into something more. They just seem so much more stable and able to go the distance.
Overall, I thought this was fun. The story was well paced and I liked how the relationship and character grown felt believable. I was sucked in from the start and only put it down when I had to (i.e. the kids were screaming for some attention). I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Quinn. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, you’re missing out!
