I really like this book. But I kind of started with “The Trade” first! But oh well! I been had this book but been pushing it back. But here I am currently reading “The Locker Room” & now I know the meaning behind this title 🤔
The Locker Room = what I the meaning behind the title.
Spoilers… here and there throughout this review**
Before I even get started on my review for this book. Like I want a book with Holt. Because I want to know who this girl is that he was pending after and brought to the locker room. Also, I wonder why Lindsey never got a book when both Dottie and Emory got one.
With that being said…. man, I can say I enjoyed this book. Like it kept my attention from being to end. I never got bored or anything like I usually do with long books. When I was reading this book., I was like yes Emory not getting on my nerves.. but then she got on my nerves.. lol I was like dang I spoke too soon.
Because I got to the part where she broke it off with Knox, I was so rooting for them. But I also knew it was too good to be true. I knew something was going to happen to break them up. I also understood where Emory was coming from when they broke up, but I felt bad for Knox because he was giving her his all. & all she did was push him away. But I understood her because she been in this six-year relationship, then moving on to something better, which was Knox.
But I still wanted to slap her because she broke up with him. Then they stayed in freaking Chicago and didn’t leave. I was like OMG girl y’all could’ve worked out. You done broke up with him for nothing. When you stayed in Chicago after college, he was drafted to the Chicago Bobcats. I was this heifer here. Then to top it off, she never let him know that she was still in Chicago and then say he was into Mia. I mean, I guess she suspected him of pinning after her without dating anyone even though both of them dated someone, which I agreed on, especially for Knox.
Since she broke it off with him, I could tell she messed with his head. Glad that Carson helped him get his head in the game both in college and when he got drafted. But what I was glad for was that both he (Knox and Emory) finally banged each other. Since they had a bet going on through junior year of college to hold out, but wait that what I wasn’t really glad on, I was REALLY glad for them finally getting back together after eight years of being apart. Heck, both their moms and friends were happy that they got together finally and even asked her to marry him & she ended up pregnant. I’m like THANK GOD.
Even though I read this series backward, 🤣 I started with the trade by mistake. I already knew that both he (Knox and Emory) was together. But kid? I can’t remember that or them being married, or I can’t remember Holt being in the book with Jason’s sister.
Have you heard the rumor around campus about the locker room?
If you haven’t, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. One rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.
Translation: baseball players are stupidly superstitious and believe the locker room has magical powers.
But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.
So when the girl I’ve fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it’s time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.
The only question is, will she accept?
