Release Blitz & Review...The Downside Of Love

    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.

            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    

This was always going to be a five star read for me whether I got the ending I wanted or not. After reading The Upside Of Falling my feelings had done a complete turn around and I was firmly on a certain characters team. Starting The Downside Of Love I was so unbelievably nervous. I stared at my kindle for at least a hour before I dared begin reading. The anxiety was at an all time high before I’d even opened the book. It was evident after reading the prologue that I was still on my characters team and my feelings hadn’t diminished since I read book one. If I thought that my feelings were going to be any less confusing during this book, I was badly mistaken. 

I’ve spent the majority of these books with conflicting feelings. I felt like I wanted to hate certain characters but the more I found out about them, the harder it was for me to hold on to my dislike of them. Meghan Quinn makes it so very easy to get inside each characters heads and to show you that they all have flaws, they’ve made mistakes and hurt themselves for the benefit of others and that made it extremely hard not to like them (and believe me when I say I tried REALLY hard not to like them). 

In the end I couldn’t help but love all these characters. There is no bad guy or girl. Meghan Quinn has a talent of allowing the reader to really get inside each characters mind and they soon felt like real people. This is an amazingly written, emotion packed, angsty romance that I adored and that’s left me hoping desperately for a certain someone’s story (please Meghan Quinn if you’re reading this, please make that happen soon).
