The Left Side Of Perfect
For better or for worse,’til death do us part . . .
The better captured me; she’s who stole my heart.
And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.
The worse of her took my breath away–kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.
When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.
The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.
I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.
But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse–even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.
I’m getting married.
This is forever, ’til death do us part.
The Right Side Of Forever
In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .
It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.
To give them your heart.
So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?
She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.

My Review for Both Books
***This Review is For The Complete Duet***
As soon as I finished Meghan Quinn’s Blue Line Duet, I had a feeling that she wasn’t done with Colby Brook’s story…that there was more to tell about this Sky Guy…how he lived his life and viewed the world and the woman it would take to not only help him fly high but also land on solid ground.
And then when Quinn posted a few details about her next duet, in my mind, I knew who this story would be about and who Quinn would match up with a hero who has owned readers’ hearts since she first introduced readers to him…and I have to admit, I wasn’t happy about it…I didn’t want the pairing because I couldn’t understand how the characters’ pasts wouldn’t cause major issues in any kind of future relationship; in fact, I was so aggravated by my speculations coming true that I almost didn’t sign up to read/review this new duet, but then I realized that even if I didn’t completely understand why the author would go the route she planned, I still wanted to come along for that journey and see if Quinn could change my mind about who should be the woman to give Colby his happy ending because I also knew that she wouldn’t make things easy on this couple…that they would have to fight for what they wanted together, and boy did Quinn make this duet hurt before it healed.
Meghan Quinn told readers herself that The Left Side of Perfect and The Right Side of Forever is ‘an epic romance, one that will take you on one hell of a journey. Your heart will bleed. You will laugh. You will swoon. You will ask me WHY??? But in the end, it will all work out.’
So, it’s that last part that I held onto as I ventured into this set of books, and I can wholeheartedly say that I was more than pleased with how Quinn laid out this couple’s story…how a strong friendship was established…how the push and pull between them was always there, but a strong foundation was built first – one that wasn’t overshadowed by past choices or relationships. And, as I finished The Left Side of Perfect and my heart was heavy for a certain girl whose declaration made readers feel the depth of her pain and sadness, I held onto Quinn’s statement that ‘it will all work out,’ trusting her to give readers what they wanted and what her characters truly seemed to need even if it took them a roundabout way to get to that point.
As I headed into The Right Side of Forever, knowing ultimately what the ending would be, I was struck by how deep Quinn took her main characters, and what I mean by that is in them understanding themselves, dealing with their own issues, and realizing their hearts’ deepest desires despite the difficult journey it would take to get them to where they were ready to be what each other needed them to be.
When I got to the last page of book 2, I can wholeheartedly say that I felt satisfied…I understood the reasons Meghan Quinn brought these two characters together and why they had to endure all of the obstacles Quinn set in their way in order to realize where they were destined to be and who they were destined to be with forever.
I’m glad I gave Meghan Quinn a chance to tell Colby’s story the way she and Colby wanted it to be told, and even though it took me some time to come to terms with the direction this duet went, by the time I finished it, I believed the hero and the heroine were destined for each other because Quinn made me believe in their friendship…in their feelings…in their love.
4.5 Poison Apples
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!
