You might not believe it, you might think that we are done, but I know we are far from over. There is so much more to be written about our love story, and to hell if I'm going to let you believe otherwise.

When he was only ten years old, Colby Brooks knew three things: his father was dying, his grandfather was his hero, and his dream was to join the Air Force. More than a decade later, Colby is THIS close to making his dream come true. He's two semesters away from graduating from the Air Force academy, but he knows getting into flight school isn't a guarantee. That's why he needs to continue to stay focused--to keep his eye on the only prize he wants and needs. However, Colby's best friend insists that he take some time to enjoy one of their last breaks before graduation, and after everything Stryder Sheppard has done for him as his classmate and friend, agreeing to accompany him to a party. Not expecting to have a good time was a given, but coming across a girl who would change his life? Well, that was something Colby wasn't prepared for. From the moment he saw fellow twenty-one-year-old Rory Oaks, he knew she was unlike anyone he's ever met, but falling in love was never part of his plans. Can he let go of his dream of becoming a fighter pilot in order to fight to be with the only girl he could ever love?

Waaaaah! This book! It was everything and then that ending... I have no words! Well, actually, I do. I wish I could list every single about The Upside of Falling, the first in Meghan Quinn's Blue Line duet, that had me swooning and swearing, but... I can't! Seriously. No one wants to be the one that spoils it for everyone else that has yet to read the book. Well, I'm sure there are probably some that get some weird thrill out of doing exactly that, but ugh, I just can't do that. Maybe saying that this is one of the best series starters that the author has penned will suffice; maybe not, but I've got my fingers crossed that I'll have piqued enough of your curiosity to get you to venture forth and read this book. Yes, it does end in one heart-crushing ending, but the conclusion to the duet is due for release in less than two weeks' time, so the wait isn't excessively long. Be glad this isn't one of those series with a continuing story line that has release dates months in between because we're all going to want to know what happens next with Colby and Rory and a few other supporting characters. Five-plus stars for The Upside of Falling. ♥
