Review: The Right Side of Forever | The Perfect Duet by Meghan Quinn

THE RIGHT SIDEIn 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.

Well cheese and crackers… That was a damn good read. I have to admit this was a lot more emotional than I originally anticipated, and it all the right kinds of ways.

Firstly, I have to admit something! Ryan. Gosh I loved this character. Meghan has created such a stunning character that she just blew me away completely; the multitude that I was able to relate to this character spoke volumes, honestly, Ryan was breathtaking. Between her emotional and mental struggles throughout the novel just brought tears to my eyes and the author brought these struggles to life so beautifully. Not just Ryan as well, but Colby. Both Ryan and Colby were just gems. They had such an enriching growth that was beyond stunning to read. How they treated one another, they grew, leaned towards one another; I said it before and I say it again – they just were perfection. 

Their friendship was heartwarming to say the least. The passion they felt towards one another brought butterflies to my stomach every time they were in a scene together. I just…. I cannot deal with the emotions. I was either laughing my ass off, crying like a lunatic or snorting from annoyance that they couldn’t see each other for what was really going on! 

But aside from all the goodness, I will say however there was a point where the drama took a turn for me that almost made me skim – almost. Ick. I know. Dare I say I almost dropped my rating. But overall I dropped my con and I will allow you to make your own judgment. For me it was just a clash of the drama filler; at points I felt it was over played, over filled with pointless drawn out dynamics with secondary characters when really there could have been more of something else and less of this… if I said what this and that was though it would be a huge spoiler, so I will be on the husher side of the tones. It slightly reminded me of a scene from Blue Line Duet a little too much. Just know though, for me there was a point of soap opera drag out, but again, it overall did not deter my enjoyment but I still flipping loved this novel! 

Bottom line, I loved this duet. It was fantastic read. It definitely ended the way I wanted, the way I expected, and sure as hell the way I flipping needed it to end. I loved the characters and how their dynamics were, how their development played out, and their overall growth cascaded from start to finish. It was a beautiful thing. 

If you are looking for some Top Gun romance feels with some emotional angst, best friends to lovers, I promise this is perfection. The Perfect Duet was absolutely phenomenal. Once I got started I could not put it down! I cannot wait to see what is up next in the Meghan Quinn world.
