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.

This is book 2 of The Blue Line duet, a follow up to The Upside of Falling in Love. If you haven’t read the first book I strongly recommend you read that one first or it will feel like eating half a scrummy sandwich or wearing one shoe on and one shoe off, you know what I mean?
As I don’t want to give away any spoilers I won’t mention any names. However, I would like to expand on the heroine’s character and her live-for-this-moment attitude; her life changing decisions and sacrifices for her family, her zeal to pursue the man she wanted to be with shows her strength of character.
“Life is full of chances. Opportunities. Challenges. But it’s what you do with them that counts.”
The protagonist in this book is a broken shell but hides his inner turmoil with his carefree facade but will he ever find happiness through the woman he always dreamed of or is his psyche too damaged to be fixed?
“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 was wrong when I assumed that this would be one of those cookie cutter fluffy romances because this is probably one of the best I have ever read, a tale full of unforgettable heroes with great hearts and minds, selfless and generous to a fault. The author’s words will shatter your heart in one chapter and glue it back together in the next. Told from different points of view, this well written epic love story will make you soar to great heights, it will give you goosebumps and will make you cry. Prepare to be dazzled! I highly recommend this book.
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!
