The Perfect Duet consists of the Left Side of Perfect and the Right Side of Forever by author Meghan Quinn.
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!
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.
I LOVED this duet, however I EMPLORE you to read The Blue Line Duet prior to this. Otherwise you’ll miss half of the story.
The Left Side of Perfect was wonderful in that it makes it very hard for you as the reader to draw the line of what the characters should do. Often we’re yelling at the characters to do this or that but it’s just not clear in this book. I love when things aren’t black and white. There’s no specific villain or bad guy yet the story draws you in and keeps you engaged until the very end. And you will love the characters. All of them.
The meaning of “The Left Side of Perfect” was especially beautiful and relatable to me.
Though there is a cliffhanger, the good news is that the sequel has been released on the same day as the first book, so you can keep on reading!!
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.
One of my favorite things about being an avid reader is when an author surprises me, which author Meghan Quinn did a couple of times in this finale to The Perfect Duet.
As in book 1, this book keeps you engaged from the moment you pick it up until the moment you put it down. I loved how you can see the growth of the characters in the story, but I feel like this story has such an important message about how we struggle to see ourselves as we should rather than how we do. I truly loved the story and the message.
I promise you that though this story will take you on a journey, it will deliver you to a place where you will get your HEA ending, and you may just end up a better person for reading it.
The Perfect Duet gets 5 stars for me and shows the enormous writing talent of Meghan Quinn.
