REVIEW – THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE (Blue Line Duet #2) by 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.

The downside of love is heartache and uncertainty, but the upside of falling is finding an everlasting love that will carry you through a lifetime of happiness.



I’m unequivocally head over heels in love with Meghan Quinn’s writing! I enjoyed the first book but even when I finished it, I was thinking I tend to love her romantic comedies so much more because I get her sense of humor, BUT, I will admit I was so wrong!! THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVEblows the first book out of the water and totally made me a believer in Meghan Quinn as an author who can deliver across multiple genres!! I can’t even begin to express how much this book touched my heart. I stayed up way past my bedtime last night because there was no way I would get any sleep until I knew how the story unfolded for everyone!! Quinn delivered an EXQUISITE conclusion to the ”Blue Line Duet”!!

At the end of the first book, I was so angry and already passing judgment. I should have known that this author wasn’t going to take the expected path with the continuation of the story. I loved how it all unfolds in book two. Totally unexpected and completely PERFECT!! I have read a series that took a similar approach and that was a five ++++ read for me too. I like when the author surprises you and makes you see things in a completely different light and now I know if this had been told any other way, I don’t think I would have felt so strongly about this book!!



This is one EPIC love story filled with CRUSHING ANGST!! I’ve got to prepare those of you who don’t have the strongest of hearts to be able to deal with that, but I think what you need is a nice glass of wine and a good buddy to read along with you that can get you through the rough patches! This is a duet that should be added to everyone’s TBRs!!

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 5++++++++
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5+++++++
Angst: 5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5+++++++
