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.
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

It is official, Meghan Quinn I want to have your babies and create romance book porn all over the place. There, I said it, I have proposed a union.
In all seriousness guys, this was absolutely phenomenal read, really a great start to such an amazingly emotional read. Damnit I was ready for some more Colby! He stole my heart in the Blue Line Duet, ugh he just…. he needed his romance. With that being said, I am going to be writing this review as vaguely as humanly possible, obviously there will be some name throwing but if you have not read the Blue Line Duet, comrades stop! STOP! Because spoilage or not, even discussing this book will give you a big whopper if you haven’t read the previous duet, and honestly why wouldn’t you go back? I personally feel it adds so much more to each characters story, so please, if you haven’t go back now to dive in and come back later!
Whew. That was a close one – but seriously cannot be too careful! So now that we have jumped out of the plane and into the free world, lets chat about The Perfect Duet’s first installment, The Left Side of Perfect because kiddos, it was perfection.
This is told by majority of two perspectives. The key element here is Colby. Oh my dear Colby, I have been aching for his finished story, especially after the cliffhanger of an opener in The Downside to Love. Colby is an intense guy, he is passionate about himself in all the right kinds of ways. At first you kind of get this mood that maybe he is full of himself but honestly, after realizing he comes from not so shiny past, he really just has a hard shell; Colby is worth the work to get to know. Luckily two beautiful women get to break that shell of exterior this round, Ryan – the sexy kitten who is best friends with Rory (again – read the Blue Line Duet) and Sage, the innocent sweet gal.
Hands down, I am going to admit it, I am rooting for Ryan. I am sorry Sage, but you are annoying. The sweet innocent next door girl act, get out of here. This is one best friend to lovers thing I am definitely cheering on. Ryan and Colby have this spark comrades, one that just cannot be touched. You will instantly see it when you read it, words cannot describe their chemistry.
I think what I like most about Ryan is her free spirit. I like how she talks to Colby, and even though they crossed that sexual line in the past, they lean on one another as friends in the future and honestly they have such a beautiful friendship it brings tears to my eyes. When I am not swooning over their personalities I am beyond chuckling at what is coming out of Ryan’s mouth, she is absolutely hilarious – she is a dream in a fictional character.
Definitely in love.
Yeah, I cannot help but gush some more! I mean seriously, I cannot wait to see what comes out of this triangle. Especailly with the cliffhanger that Meghan left me falling over on… With Colby realize what has been right in front of him this entire time, or will he marry the girl who is comfortable to him? I am very curious.
Another tidbit I am excited to mention is I love the connections between the characters, again I say it, I love that Colby has come full circle with Rory and Stryder. After the ending of the Blue Line Duet, I wanted to know if that bridge continued to build and honestly I felt their was closure there – one that was well deserved. I liked it.
So here we are comrades… I’m going in! See you on the end of The Right Side of Forever – Colby better pick the right fucking girl or I may throw my kindle.
