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.

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!

Meghan Quinn

To say I was terrified to read The Downside of Love by Meghan Quinn is an understatement. I was devastated, DEVASTATED, after the ending of The Upside of Falling. I wanted this book immediately after finishing the first and then when it did hit my Kindle, I avoided it for days. Days! And that my friends is the power behind an amazing story. One that stays with you.

This is not a standalone, The Upside of Falling must be read first. I will admit I wanted this story to go one way and only one way, but sometimes characters tell their own story. And trust me when I say this, this duet is one you have to experience and not have spoiled. The journey will be emotional, heartbreaking and heartwarming, but it is one that is so worth going through.

This story is one full of love, friendships and sacrifices. When you love someone, truly love them, sometimes you must make sacrifices for them. And sometimes life throws you unexpected curveballs and you go where it leads you.

Once I started reading, I could not put this book down. I had to know how it would all end. Meghan Quinn has been a no-question, 1-click author for me, but this duet solidified her as one of my top favorite authors ever. I was left drained in all the best possible ways after reading this book. I am sure many will be weary of reading this second book after the ending of the first book, as I was, but trust me, it is a must-read.
