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.


The Upside of Falling is book one in Meghan Quinn’s highly anticipated Blue Line Duet about love, heartache, dreams and sacrifices…

Although it’s been several hours since I reached that shock-worthy ending, my heart is still beating a million miles an hour and my stomach is in all sorts of knots. I knew immediately without a doubt that the moment I began this story it was going to be impossible to put down and I was right because I ended up devouring it in one sitting. Meghan Quinn has certainly captivated my soul in this emotionally beautiful and realistic romance!

Colby Brooks is a young man who is focused on his dreams and he avoids distractions at all costs. At least that is until he meets the beautiful Rory Oaks at a party. Suddenly, she’s a distraction he doesn’t want and yet a distraction he can’t help but crave. Their chemistry is undeniably real and their romance burns bright for all to see. I’ve got to say that right from the beginning I was rooting for them every step of the way and I couldn’t wipe that huge smile off my face while I was reading their story. While the majority of this story had be swooning, the hard moments brought unexpected tears to eyes and I wished that I could go back to their happier moments each and every time.

I am already on the edge of my seat in anticipation for The Downside of Love, the conclusion in the Blue Line Duet… ESPECIALLY, after that intense ending and all I can think about right now is THANK GOODNESS I won’t have to wait too long for it!



About Meghan Quinn

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!
