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.

Genre: Contemporary Romance.
Actual Rating: 6+ stars
Meghan Quinn has proven herself to be one of the finest authors around. She can write the best romantic comedies that make readers roll around on the floor laughing and she can write emotional books that tear readers hearts apart and slowly build them up again. The Upside of Falling; the first book in the Blue Line Duet, falls more into the emotional category. And not in a way that means our beloved characters are dying off but emotional in a sense that this book evokes so many powerful sensations that readers have a hard time gripping their own feelings. Time and again, Meghan has brought me to my knees with her breathtaking words, realistic and natural characters, and a love so powerful you can actually feel it. This is an immensely beautiful novel and I think everyone who has ever dreamed of having a real life hero swoop into their lives and fall head over heels for them should read it. Many are going to complain of the dreaded cliffhanger and while I can understand your want and need for the second book immediately after this one, the wait is not long. Just prepare yourself for falling... Hard.
I will not go into plot details of this book. Frankly, you need to read it and feel it without someones input or play by play of the story. However, I will give you a few small details pertaining to the characters so you know the kind of people you will meet when you dive in (yes, I said people. Rory and Colby have literally become lifelike to me and I now call these fictional people friends).
Colby is in the US Airforce. He has always had a dream of becoming a fighter pilot and will let nothing stand in his way- and by nothing I mean people or any kind of distractions. He is at first very broody (understandable because his past wasn't the easiest) but slowly awakens into the kind of man any woman would dream of. >> Readers, you will get a MILITARY MAN .
Rory is a firecracker. Normally romance novels feature MEN who go after the WOMEN they want, but in this case, Rory does. She doesn't take no for an answer. She wants to get under Colby's hard demeanor and will literally stop at nothing to do so. She's my kind of girl! I think many readers are going to absolutely LOVE her.
... That's it. That is all I am giving you. You honestly need to read this book and feel the emotions flow through you. I'm not even saying that because I love Meghan Quinn. I am saying that because this is a beautiful and heartfelt story and is perfect for any romance reader. Nuff Said.
Grab this book! It's worth every second and every breath. And please, don't worry your pretty little heads about the cliffy. I know it will all be worth it in the end.

No, this is my story.
