Release Blitz + Review – The Upside of Falling (Blue Line Duet, #1) by Meghan Quinn

THE UPSIDE OF FALLING, book one in the Blue Line Duet by Meghan Quinn, is NOW LIVE!

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 was a sexy, angsty, and emotional start to the Blue Line Duet, and I really enjoyed it! The storyline and characters were great, and I loved Meghan Quinn’s writing style.

   Colby and Rory were wonderful, and I really enjoyed them and the first part of their story. It took me a little while to warm up to them and get invested in the plot, but once I did I really enjoyed it. I really liked their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed for the most part. I loved reading the book from both Colby and Rory’s point of view, and most of their banter and interactions with each other. The first part of their journey wasn’t easy by any means, and at times it was extremely frustrating and heartbreaking. There were certain aspects that I wasn’t expecting and didn’t care for, but despite some of the cons in The Upside of Falling, there were a lot of pros as well. The ending left me completely shocked, and I honestly don’t know how to process everything that happened. I’m desperately hoping that Colby and Rory get their happily ever after in The Downside of Love.

   The Upside of Falling was a sexy and emotional start to the Blue Line Duet, and I really enjoyed it for the most part. Meghan Quinn did a great job with this book, and even though it was only a four-star read for me, I’m looking forward to reading the conclusion to Colby and Rory’s story in The Downside of Love!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.



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.
