I don't really know how to review this one. The main reason? Jason and Dottie drove me nuts most of the time. It's not that I didn't like them. It's just, there were so many little things that irritated me about their situation, or certain things they one or the other would do.
Jason is a really sweetheart, and I liked that. But he was also really annoying at times, because what on earth goes on in his head? He doesn't even know haha. And Dottie, she just frustrated me with her communication most of the time.
These two do work really well together, they were a great couple, just lots of little things annoyed me. And maybe I wasn't partially in the right frame of mind at the time of reading, so that probably didn't help either.
I liked getting back into this world of characters, and I loved getting Knox and Carson and the girls in there too. One really great theme in this series is the characters with such big hearts. Jason and Dottie were no different, and there are some really special things they do in this that highlight that.
I laughed, I rolled my eyes and got frustrated, and I was happy when things finally came together. This one sure takes you on a ride, and its another great addition to this series.
Loved the humour throughout The Lineup, mostly due to Jason, he's a pretty funny guy. I haven't read the previous standalones in this series yet, but now I'm going to - The Dugout will be next, as I really liked Milly in The Lineup ( and The Dugout is her book ).
Jason is a genuinely good guy - loves his family and devoted to his charity The Lineup. He's funny, and very open and friendly. And then there's Dottie. Dottie comes across as hard and closed off personality wise, but really she's just wrapped herself in layers upon layers of protection due to her confidence within herself being shaken from a previous relationship. I really enjoyed her character across the story, she comes across as super snarky but the reader just knows there's a softer marshmallow centre in there somewhere.
Lots of emotions to be felt reading this book - I smiled, laughed, almost cried towards the end, and then of course Jason made me laugh again. A fun ( mostly ) read.
I like this series it’s cute, funny and enjoyable. Whilst Jason was seriously annoying at times he was adorable, funny and had such a big heart. He was just what Dottie needed since she was so tense and serious. It was great seeing Dottie again, I liked her in The Locker Room.
I liked that we got to enjoy all the friends from the previous books though I thought it was completely ridiculous and hypocritical that Emory commented on not letting previous relationships affect this one... I mean seriously!! If you have read The Locker Room about Emory and Knox you will understand.
Do read The Locker Room first then The Dug Out then this one.
They are a cute funny couple and this is worth a read.
