Review: The Downside of Love (Blue Line #2) by Meghan Quinn

     

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved. This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would. This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself. No, this is my story. A story about sacrifice. A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl. A story I wish I never had to tell. This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

It's hard to write a review where I can't mention names and practically anything that happens in this book. The only thing I can tell is that Rory gets her happy ending and another due is coming so keep an eye for it. Ryan will get a book and it's not going to be fun. I have a feeling it will be a repeat in some ways of this book. I wasn't convinced that this is the right ending for Rory. I wasn't sold on the whole ordeal. Still, the book was read way easier than I thought and it was a pleasant experience. I might not have been on board with everything, but it kind of worked. I am neutral when it comes to this book and I have a feeling that under other circumstances I would have adored and loved the book so much that I would have been singing its praises. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you anything about it. I do find it better than the first book and it's better written. In this book, we explore and analyze the relationships between the characters more and deeper which is something that I liked. The final part of the duet doesn't lack in any department and that made me happy. I feel a little lost because we have Colby and Rory and Rory and Stryder and I didn't know who was the best choice for her. That answer came as I kept reading and I think the readers will be satisfied with the ending result. Despite my initial surprise about the ending of the first book, I can say that the duet is definitely something that's worth reading.  

           
Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone. Be somebody’s hero. That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore. My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t. I’m smarter. Stronger. A man. And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost. Focus. Resolve. Determination. But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed. One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks. Smart. Charming. Beautiful. Rory changed everything. Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend. Each kiss faded decade-long dreams. And with one single incident, I fly off course.   Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU      

             


Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze! Facebook | Follow on Goodreads | Website | Amazon Author Page | Instagram | Follow on BookBub
