Review Blitz: The Downside of Love (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.

Reviewing this book will  be hard, because I’m absolutely not giving SPOILERS away. And as such I’m going to talk very little about actual facts of this book.

So, I loved the first book, but this one blew me out of the park. The character development is beyond amazing, and I was so scared as to where Meghan Quinn would take this story, but I shouldn’t have. This one felt absolutely right. It’s very hard to pull the twist on this series, and make the readers okay and happy with the result, so very well done Meghan!!!

The development on this book is slower than the first, and it allows for a sturdier relationship, amazing character growth. And the development of beautiful and amazing friendships.

I was a little thrown off by the last chapter and I do hope there’s a third booking coming our way, because I have so many questions, and I feel like all these characters have a lot to give, and I also feel like some of them need to confront the bullies in their lives. I need them to overcome the issues in their past, and I want other people to burn in hell.

This book absolutely messed up my feelings, and it’s a story that I will keep close to my heart for a long long time. So I can only recommend you read it, but don’t attempt to read this one without reading the first book of the series first, The Upside of Falling.

The Upside of Falling:

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.

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!
