BLOG TOUR: The Left Side of Perfect by Meghan Quinn

The Left Side Of Perfect – Release Day – August 30

For better or for worse,'til death do us part . . .

The better captured me; she's who stole my heart.

And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.

The worse of her took my breath away--kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.

When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.

The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.

The third?

I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.

But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse--even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.

I’m getting married.

This is forever, 'til death do us part.

The Left Side of Perfect was so unexpected. I think I read through this book with my mouth agape for the most part. I honestly went into Facebook and asked who else was reading this... I knew I was going to need someone to walk through these books with me. TLSoP was the lighter of the two books. I feel like we really get to know the main characters. I have to keep this short and sweet otherwise I’ll ruin shit and I can’t ruin shit! I spent a lot of this book going through every emotion possible and wondering why people couldn’t see things that were right in front of their faces. 

Meghan Quinn played with my heart again. I picture her being incredibly bored and just twiddling my heart just because she can. Things happened in this book and I was like woohoo... FINALLY, but oh no, that didn’t go as I planned. Oh wait... is that a curve ball? Of course it is, and Ms. Quinn just walloped me upside the head with it. I’m left reeling and confused... do I continue on when I don’t like what she’s doing to me. I’ve planned this all out and she’s changing them. Making them mold to her ways again. She’s confusing my heart again. She’s making me question what I thought I knew.

Ms. Quinn has done something remarkable with this book and with the Blue Line duet. She made me question myself and what I thought I knew.... what I thought was right and what was wrong. Ms. Quinn has elevated herself to one of my favorites. I can’t help but read, no that isn’t the right verb for what I did with this book, for what I did with the Blue Line duet, and for what I’m about to do with The Ride Side of Forever... I tore through these books, compulsively, completely unable to stop myself. It was maddening... Meghan Quinn made me go mad... and I loved it!!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.



The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day August 31

In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .

It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.

To give them your heart.

So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?

She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.

So the Right Side of Forever seriously messed me up! I’m not sure I’ve ever... E.V.E.R had a book wreck me like this conclusion did. I sobbed, no, I didn’t cry... I SOBBED through the last third of this book. My poor 9-year-old daughter kept asking me what was wrong. She didn’t understand why I would read a book that could completely break me in half and how in the heck I would enjoy that... I didn’t enjoy the headache that followed my sobfest, let me say that right now.

I’m so incredibly impressed with Meghan Quinn’s stories, both of these connected duets. I was so upset after the Blue Line duet, it did not go my way and I was devastated. But leave it in the hands of the offer. She knows what she’s doing with her characters. I feel so in love with everyone and all four of these books that I feel lost now that the books are over. So many issues we were discussed in these books... self-doubt, self-pity, self hatred, secrets, goals, dreams, love, hopes and fears, Family dynamics, friendships, self-esteem issues, sex, dangerous behavior, drinking, infatuation, and self respect. Ms. Quinn broached everything and these four books and I felt her words in my soul. Love yourself is pushed in this duet and I just adored the massage.

So Ms. Quinn... the next time I am frustrated or yelling at you due to some way you have a beat my heart up (because I’m sure this will happen again)... remind me of this duet because this duet is everything love and friendship should be. Thoroughly impressed! These books have made it into my top reads of 2018!!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.


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!

I love me a good friends to lovers romance and JD Hawkins can write a really fun and full of life story. I was so pulled into this story. It’s so light and easy and one minute I was just starting the story and the next Temptation was over. Melinda and Wyatt are so great! I loved their chemistry and their heat. The sexual tension between them was so combustible until if finally exploded into this amazing sexual... event, is the only word I can think of.

The secondary characters in this book are both some fantastic new characters and meeting up with some old friends. I adored all of them! They just made me smile in so much happiness and so much sweetness. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I loved that this only had a bit of angst. It honestly made me want to skip and hum... is that odd?!? Really there aren’t many books that can just give you this feel-good happiness feeling in your heart. Temptation does that! Snatch this book up and enjoy Wyatt and Melinda as they start a new path together.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.


What happens when the boy you've wanted your whole life finally wants you back?
I'm used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York's premiere consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder--with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I've been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.
LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.
And Melina.
Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It's so hard to describe her...enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there's a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I'm dying to drag out.
There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.
The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don't know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina's passion, I'm tempted beyond belief.
I have to admit it: temptation is hard to resist.


I go dizzy, feeling so faint I need to close my eyes for a minute before I can do anything but bask. Wyatt strokes my hair slowly, the rough-but-cool touch of his hands bringing me back to life, and when I open my eyes I see him lying there beside me.
Suddenly the haze clears and I feel my stomach sink like a stone. The full magnitude of what just happened forming like a beast on the horizon.
“Oh god…I can’t believe we just…” I mumble.
“Yeah…” Wyatt replies with a lazy grin. “We did.”
The anxiety comes fast, flooding into that empty space left by orgasm.
Wyatt. My childhood crush. A friend I share with our families, our entire group. My new, albeit temporary, boss. As amazing as it felt in the moment, the myriad ways in which this was a horrible idea come out from wherever they were hiding an hour ago.

How could I be so reckless?
And how the hell are we going to keep this a secret?

RELEASE BLITZ: Just Exes by Charity Ferrell

Title: Just Exes

Series: Blue Beech #3
Author: Charity Ferrell
Genre: New Adult Romance

 Release Date: August 30, 2018


Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.  Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating. The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath.
I can’t blame him. He pleaded for me not to walk away.  He doesn’t know leaving him broke my heart as much as it did his. 
It wasn’t for me. Rather, it was for someone else. 

I skipped town after Hurricane Lauren obliterated my heart. 
Coming home was a hard choice to make. Arresting her isn’t. She has no idea of the demons I carry with me now. No idea that I’m a new man.
Two women ruined me. 
One I gave my heart to. 
The other punished me for it.

I was so excited for Lauren’s story after meeting her in the past two books. I was ready for someone to flip her onto her booty! So Just Exes is the third book in this series. They can each be read as standalones. I read book two before book 1 so I don’t think you’ll have any real issues if you skip over the first two books. You might enjoy them all more if you know the other characters and their stories but it’ll be enjoyable both ways so it’s really up to you as the reader. The author, Charity Ferrell writes like a dream. You really find yourself starting to care for her characters.

Lauren was a fun character. She was carefree and light but with this bit of spunk to her. I love how sweet she is… how caring for the people she loves. But, she’s always seemed to be a bit standoffish for relationship. That is, until she runs into Gage. The ex-boyfriend, now cop, who arrests her… I’m pretty sure he loved that! How many of us would just DIE to do that to an ex? I was really happy that this was told in dual POV and we did get some glimpses of the past but she didn’t alternate with living in the past and now. We lived in the now with some sneak peeks. The heat between the two characters was scorchin’ and I loved watching them fight it.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
