Synopsis from Goodreads

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 fills in the gaps the epilogue from The Upside of Falling left us with. You may recall I struggled with my connection to the characters in The Upside of Falling especially to Rory. Sadly, this did not improve in The Downside of Love, although I did understand her better I still didn’t really like her 😒

The Downside of Falling is raw, realistic and emotional – showing how messy emotions can be when you catch them. Falling in love is often scary and painful especially when your feelings are torn between what you think you want and what you actually need. I like my romance with a little more lightness and I think facing reality impacted my enjoyment of the story alongside my dislike of Rory.

Meghan showcases her writing skills within the Blue Line Duet pouring on the raw emotion although I do prefer her rom-coms (my personal preference) because of her ability to poke fun at everyday situations we can all relate to 💝

I have one word left for you – COLBY. Now him I like 😍
