Summary

I’ve fallen victim to a heinous act. An act so vile, so downright dirty, that I’m not sure as a 20-year-old man I'll ever recover. Brace yourself, because what I’m about to tell you might have you gasping in secondhand horror.

Ready? Here it goes....I’ve recently become the pawn of a meddling mom. Yes...a meddling mom - who's been trying to set me up all summer. Now, I understand it’s not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but when she makes it her relentless mission, the heinous act should be classified as a misdemeanor at least.

Of course, my mom, the evil matriarch in the devil’s leggings, made her final stab at finding a girl for me days before I went back to college. And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last. A titan in black skinny jeans. A boss of nonchalance. And a girl who would not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous around campus, and is 100 percent against relationships. Of any sort. Thanks, Mom.

So many tears

I haven’t cried this much during a book in a long time. The ending was a bit blunt after all the drama and year’s of misunderstandings.

Least fave of the series

This was my least favorite book of the Brentwood Boys series. I loved Lincoln as a secondary character in the previous books and was very excited for his story. This was a very long slow-burn with two athletes. I love Quinn’s books and this was the first one I truly struggled to finish. The meddling moms with absolutely no boundaries ruined this one for me. I couldn’t see the chemistry between Indie & Lincoln and that broke my heart. Kelsey Navarro & Connor Crais do an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions, attitude and personality.

Long Relationship

This is a story of a Link & Indy. Very sweet story of friends to lovers. I adore Link he is such a great guy. In my opinion he let Indy define and lead this relationship. Indy is damaged cause how her parents are with their marriage & each parents relationship with her. I got frustrated with Indy many times. This is a long story that seem to go on & on but I liked it. Have patients & you’ll be good.
Narration by Kelsey Navarro & Connor Craig’s was great. I think they both did great job bring the characters to life.

❤Love it❤

I did love the book but at times the characters got on my nerves 😒 not really in a bad way just a little frustrated about the whole miscommunication overall I did enjoy the book. Narration was great as always to the point it made me cry and you guys I'm not a crier but Connor narration was on point and at times really emotional so as Kelsey who is still a little new to me. I wasn't really expecting to get emotional at all but surprisingly I was and please with the experience even if it made me cry.

Never a better Setup

Over the last 18 months I've listened to over 200 audiobooks and this book was the THE BEST ONE. Meghan Quinn is special! She writes real people and real emotions. Romance books are often contrived and fanciful, but her books are situations men and women have and are experiencing. Misunderstanding and maturing into the person you want to be is a process, and Quinn writes that so well. The Setup is simply personal. Not because I have gone through this exact friends to friends with benefits back to friends to estranged back to friends and finally a couple, but because I have experienced some form of this with different men at different times. You will see your many relationships wether you are a man or a woman or if you love a man or a woman. Love, loss and unconditional love are what we all experience in this life, and Quinn pens the Setup with the dialogue of regular people. What makes it so special is that Lincoln Castle and Indie Mayhem are all of us, and the 12 hours are a treat you NEED to and MUST hear. It's worth more than money and a credit, it a must listen and get lost.
