New Release: The Catching Kind

FINALLY! It’s live! It’s live!


Connor Ryan is America’s Sexiest Athlete…and the current bad boy of baseball.

Hailey Tate is…not a woman to put up with his crap.


Hailey Tate thought she was worth more than a straight flush.

Apparently not.

When camera-shy author Hailey Tate’s agent loses a bet and brokers a deal, it leaves Hailey in the last place she wants to be: backed into the corner of Publicity and Paparazzi. Now, thanks to her girl-next-door image and role as pretend girlfriend to a womanizing shortstop, she’s getting the attention she always managed to avoid.

Connor Ryan is not only America’s Sexist Athlete, he’s also the current bad boy of baseball. But when he goes a base too far, management wants to bench him…permanently. One thing he never counted on? Falling for his sweet, fake girlfriend. He’s the guy who can catch anything and now she’s next on his list.


  1. I read the book and loved it! Hailey and Connor were amazing and I wish to read more about them.
    Is there going to be more books in the Brew Ha Ha series?

  2. I wrote this review for the CATCHING KIND > > > What a GREAT book! As I read this book on my kindle one evening (rather than watching my beloved basketball or Austalian Open tennis), my son said to me, “You must really be enjoying that book. You are grinning from ear to ear!” I did enjoy THE CATCHING KIND from the very start to the last word. Quinn writes dialoges with such wit and the entire book with such clever interactions that my heart was greatly invested in the story.

    Hailey is a YA author (hooray for Young Adult books!) while Connor is the professional baseball player who has a different model on his arm each week. Connor gets himself in a situation which leaves him with a bad reputation which will hurt his marketablity. Hailey and Connor’s agents wager during a poker match and the result is that Hailey will be Connor’s “fake” girlfriend to up his PR value. From the very first, they have problems. Hailey is not into being anyone’s trophy woman and despises the no brain-good looks mentality. They often disagree hotly, but where there is great antagonism could something else grow?They decide as long as they have to spend time together, they may as well be friends. They develop a great friendship, committed to staying single, but pretending to be an item for the press. They actually have so much fun as friends that it is extremely sad when the time of the wager nears its end and they won’t be spending time together. The breakup was all part of the plan, but could a guy ever love the short, brainy woman rather than the supermodels? Could a young woman find that the celebrity jock is actually a great guy with a good heart? Will the end of the wager be the end of the laughs and good times for the “fake” couple?

    I received this wonderful book from the publisher through Net Galley and this is my honest opinion of the book. I LOVED it!
