Blog Tour: Excerpt, Q&A with Meghan, and Review for Three and Out by Meghan Quinn

I can't begin to tell you how sad I am to see this series end.  All of the characters have provided me hours of entertainment; laughter, tears, anger, and all these other emotions.  Besides my review, there's also lots more you won't want to miss out on!

Title: Three and Out ((Love and Sports, #3)
Author: Meghan Quinn

About Three and Out :

Piper was dead to him. The minute she walked out the door on Mason, he was done. D.O.N.E. Now, three months later, he’s still trying to act like he doesn’t care. Like his heart hasn’t been torn into shreds and obliterated beyond recognition. But it’s not working. He’s broken and beyond repair. Then Piper goes missing. Mason tries to show the world he doesn’t care, but his world is flipped upside down. A vulnerable Mason finds help in an unexpected place and it’s an offer he can’t refuse. The knot that has been gripping Mason’s heart slowly starts to unravel and he’s starting to look into his future… Three and Out runs through the lives of Mason and his friends while they struggle to find love and keep it in their hectic, crazy, drama twisted lives. Not everyone is meant to be and not everyone who you think should be together, will end up together in the final installment of the Love and Sports series.  




"Woah, careful there." "Damn, wet floor. Like mopping is going to make it any better looking." Jax's ears perked up at hearing a familiar voice. He lifted them both up so they were standing. The woman was brushing off her navy blue, hip-hugging skirt, so he couldn't tell who it was, but when she looked up, Jax instantly knew why he recognized the woman's voice. "Brooke?" Her eyes widened, and then recognition fell over her features. "Jax. Wow, never thought I would ever cross paths with you again. How's it going?" "Alright, and yourself?" As Brooke talked about her new clothing line and her little apartment in downtown Denver, Jax took her all in. Her hair was short now, just below chin length, and styled to frame her face. Her body was the same rocking figure he remembered from when he met her at the bar, that awkward night his boys and Jake Taylor all hung out before a pre-season game, and for some reason, her eyes were brighter than he remembered, as if she was breathing a new life.    

Q&A with Meghan Quinn:

1) What's the first book you read that motivated you to become an author yourself? Not sure if there was a book that motivated me to become an author, it was more of the fact that I had multiple personalities rattling off in my head and I needed to tamp them down by letting them tell their story. God, that makes me look like a total freak.
2)How long does it take on average from start to finish to write a book? Depends on what is going on with my life I travel a lot for work and I do like to spend time with my family but on average for a three hundred page book, probably a month and a half to two months.
3)Do you write to music or is absolute silence a must?Music is a must for me. If I don’t have music playing then I sing in my head and let me just tell you this, that isn’t pretty. No one likes a bird squawking in their head so I listen to Spotify and make playlists for each book.
4)What books are you currently reading? I am reading the Black Falcon Series by Michelle Valentine. So good!
5)What's the last book you finished reading? Well, Toxic, by me because I’m gearing up to write the second book and I like to re-read the first so I can connect the dots. God, what a horrible cliffhanger I gave that book. Amazing, but horrible. Sorry readers.


★★★★★ stars

I couldn't have asked for a better finale to the Love and Sports series.  Double Coverage ended with so many unanswered questions and open plot points.  I didn't think it was going to be possible to wrap everything up in a single book, but Meghan Quinn did it, and I loved the way she did it too.

I've always had my favorite characters in this series and had certain hopes for them. I love how Meghan Quinn wrote this book in a way everyone became a favorite.  I didn't think it was possible in a million years for Mason and Piper to find their way back to each other, especially due to the way they hurt each other, but somehow they did and they made it work.  I loved seeing Ashlin and Jesse together. I really love how Jesse wooed her and was patient with her when it came to her hangups regarding relationships.  They both made some mistakes, but they were really small in the scheme of things and the bond they had between them was strong enough to overcome them.  Plus I thought they were really hot together!  I also love the more sensitive Hannah in this book. You'd think I'd be talking about a more sensitive Ryker, but it was innocent Hannah who really stole the spotlight in their relationship.  She was able to see how much she'd hurt Ryker and what she'd lost by doing so. I also loved seeing Jake and Lexi, but it was sort of sad to see them so muted in this book.  I think the surprise couple in this book for me were Jax and Brooke. They worked in a way that was really good.

I read this book in no time and was sad when it was over.  The epilogue wrapped everything up nicely, but I'm hoping Meghan isn't averse to doing some cross overs with these characters in her other novels and series or maybe even novellas.  It'd be great to see them again, further into the future.  This has been my favorite series of Meghan's so far.  She's written with explosive passion, great humor, and staggering emotions.  It's impossible to stop reading one of her books once you start.  It's easy to see why I love her characters and books so much.  

* Thanks to the author for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for them in any manner.*

Double Coverage (Love and Sports, #2)

Unfortunate inconvenience, that is the way Piper describes her encounter with Mason Dashel. From the minute the alpha male interrupts her morning after hangover on the airplane, she can’t stand to be near the egotistical maniac with a booming voice and annoying sex appeal. But to her misfortune she finds herself not only having to spend time with him at their best friends’ wedding but she also can’t seem to shake the infuriating man in her everyday life. Psychotic Una-bomber with the constant mensies is the way Mason describes his flying companion, Piper Shores. After a horrific break up with his now ex, Brooke, he finds himself being engulfed by the temperamental red head that just so happens to be the maid of honor to one of his best friends, Lexi. Even though she grates on his every nerve, he can’t help but want a piece of her. The two are like oil and water, a science experiment ready to explode any second but they can’t help but be drawn to each other. The only problem is… there are other people they are involved with who not only prevent Mason and Piper from being together, but interrupt any chance they have at making a relationship work.

About Meghan Quinn:

Badass_Headhot When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn’t take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch, besides “The Notebook” I made time to read the heartbreaking novel. It wasn’t until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books, I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven’t turned back since. You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation. I am currently residing in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.
