Release Blitz | 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 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.

The Left Side of Perfect

To me, there is a left and right side of perfect. The right side of perfect is what society deems worthy of the title. It's the kind of perfect you believe doesn't exist, but in others' eyes, it does. And then there is the left side of perfect, my favorite kind. That's the kind of soul-bearing perfect, full of flaws and shortcomings. It's the most beautiful side of perfect... the imperfect.

Ryan and Colby met through their friends. It wasn’t until the wedding of both their best friends that they spent time together, just the two of them. They agreed it would just be one night.

Ryan was the type of girl who likes to have fun. Who seeks out her happy-ever-after with all the wrong guys. She promised her best friend she would look after Colby. What she didn’t expect from his brooding guy was a really good time.

Colby is a serious person. He didn’t really like Ryan that much, but of course, he was attracted to her. He didn’t realize that spending time with the girl and getting to know her better would change his perception of her. One night turned into one of the hottest night of his life.

Morning came, reality came in and they went separate ways. Nevertheless, fate intervened and brought Ryan to Vegas where Colby was stationed. Colby already met someone new.

Sage - how can you possibly hate her? She’s nice, sweet, and can never do wrong kind of person (so yes, you can really hate her). She’s the complete opposite of Ryan. Colby fell in love with her. And it was just so devastating.

BUT. I love the friendship that blossomed between Colby and Ryan despite seeing each other naked - it was easy and effortless for the both of them. Sage became Ryan’s friend as well.

How can they maintain the easy friendship when one of them is falling in love and watching the two fall in love with each other? Yeah, rather complicated. Ryan couldn’t possibly ruin the relationship between Colby and Sage. They were both happy, so she decided to be the bigger person and ran away and ignore Colby. Perhaps, it will help her move on faster.

Colby and Ryan may have started out as strangers, then eventually as friends - I love how their friendship evolved. On how Ryan tried her best to be strong despite what happened to her in the past, and how she tries to let go of her love knowing that he will be happy with Sage.

I am in love with this DUET - I was just glad that I was handed the second book immediately. The ending had me on the edge of my seat with my heart on my throat. It’s fun, sexy, heartbreaking, and something that you can’t put down, not until you reached the end.

The Right Side of Forever

Did I tell you I got lucky that I had been able to get the next book in the duet? The Right Side of Perfect is simply just PERFECT. It started right where the Left Side of Perfect ended, with our heroine broken-hearted. What happens when she was asked to be the maid-of-honor in the wedding? Yikes. Awkward.

You really can’t hate Sage. Seriously. This girl didn’t do anything wrong, and likes Ryan a whole lot. Problem is that Colby is too blind to see what’s in front of him, and Ryan, aw, she didn’t want to risk it. She decided to avoid them, date another person. But, Colby is just different. She wanted him.

When Sage decided to finally be the braver and bigger person, and everything went back into its place - and I thought I was going to finally have the HEA I was looking for, something else came up. Yep, it was something that has been simmering inside Ryan for quite a while now. Her inner battles. I was just glad that Colby tried to hold on to her, and decided to respect her wishes, but still proved to her that he will always be there for her.

I love the pacing of the story. The problem really didn’t come as a surprise, rather it was pressing since the beginning and I was glad that Meghan was able to address it and turned it into a beautiful ending.

The Right Side of Perfect was a rollercoaster ride that is emotion-filled, ones that will give you the highest ups and the lowest downs. Meghan Quinn made sure that you will be left with a major book hangover when you finish both books in this duet. It’s unforgettable. Books that will nag your senses for quite a while.  

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!

Her hands rest on her hips, the navy-blue Grecian-style dress draped down the length of her body, a small slit on the side that barely reaches her knee. “You’re really fixated on this, aren’t you?”
“Nah, didn’t care too much. A homemade dinner would have been nice, though.”
“I can’t cook.”
“Neither can I,” I answer honestly. I either eat out, or I make myself scrambled eggs, and that’s about it. Rory taught me how to make meatballs once but hell if I can remember how to do that. All I know is that I enjoyed crushing the beef between my fingers. I get by with limited knowledge in the kitchen.
She chuckles. “Well, aren’t we a pair?” She turns to watch Stryder and Rory together. Apparently not giving a shit about the even bigger elephant in the room, Ryan asks, “Is this weird for you?”
“I have a flask in my jacket pocket, so you tell me.”
She lifts her bouquet and pulls out a mini bottle of alcohol. She wiggles her eyebrows at me. “Thought maybe we’d both need this since we have to sit through having all these pictures taken with them.”
“Smirnoff? That’s what you brought with you?”
“It was all I had. Don’t judge me.”
“I’m judging.”
Playfully she whacks my arm. “You shouldn’t be judging me. It was innovative. I carved out a little space in my bouquet for this bottle. If anything, you should congratulate me on this genius idea.”
“Was it your idea?”
“I mean”—she toes the ground—“I might have seen the idea on Pinterest along with a recipe for beer cookies that tasted like vomit.”
“Beer cookies?” I shake my head and take the little bottle from her. Twist the cap, tilt the bottle back, and swig. I hand it back to her, leaving half the bottle. “Even I know better than to think beer cookies would taste good.”
“They were for a boyfriend I was trying to impress.”
“Impress or poison?”
“Impress.” She laughs. “Although after our breakup, I should probably say poison. Teach all future suitors: if you mess with me, you get poisoned.”
“It’d keep me away, that’s for damn sure.”
She finishes the rest of the little bottle and returns it to her bouquet. She pats it and says, “I can recycle it later.”
“Get drunk and save the earth. Sounds like a good combination to me.”
“Ryan and Colby, can we get you over here for a few pictures?” the photographer calls out.
“That’s our cue.” Ryan pokes my cheek with her index finger, looking sincerely at me. “Don’t forget to smile, because these pictures will last forever.”
“Scowling not in the job description of best man?”
As we walk over, she says, “I would normally say no, but given the bride is your ex-girlfriend, one scowl is allowed.”
“One scowl? Damn, better make it a good one.”
