Review Tour for The Upside Of Falling by Meghan Quinn


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.

Review by Gia:

This book is amazing!   It's a drop everything and read book.  I devoured this one in one sitting. 
Colby is a great guy.  He is focused and determined and wants no distractions.  He didn't have the best of childhoods but always stayed focused on his dream.  He wants nothing more than to make flight school.  I absolutely loved Rory.   Rory had dreams but family kept her from going for those dreams.  My heart went out to Rory.  She has made amazing sacrifices for her family without even batting an eye because that's what you do for family.  This actually made me look at my life a bit because I have two special needs children and one child keeps telling don't worry about when you get old I take care of them, reading Rory's story is making me take a hard look at that. 
Rory meets Colby at a party while he's on a break.  He's kind of cold first because Rory has the potential of being a distraction.   There is a great connection between them.  Rory is persistent and won't let that connect go.   She slowly break down Colby's walls.   I loved reading the letter they were writing each other, it made me like these characters even more.
Ok, now the ending, no spoilers but this book left me devastated.   I feel broken after reading it and can't wait for the next one, I need to be put back together. 
5 Amazeballs Stars!!



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.


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!
