Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.
My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

Jenny’s Review

I may have loved Meghan Quinn’s writing before, but now, now I’m down right obsessed with her writing.

Well too bad, I need the next book NOW!!!!!!

This book took my heart and it is literally still is holding it captive. One word, so unexpected…..

We meet Colby Brooks, broken, closed off, discouraging attitude, moody, downright rude, and has no time for anything but his dream, graduating flight school and flying. He’s lost a lot in his short lifetime, been abused physically and mentally by people that should love him most, and he has given up everything to prove he can and he will achieve what the one evil person told him he would never do. So when he goes to a party, one that he didn’t even want to attend, his world tilts on its axis when he sees a girl that will literally rock his world. But he is determined to not let her be a distraction to achieving his dreams………

Rory, she is all about integrity, and she shouts loyalty. She is sweet, kind, gorgeous, funny, and she is all about protecting her family no matter the cost. Her family is her priority, she will never leave them, never walk away from them as they need her help. So when she meets Colby at a party and he is a closed off rude jerk, she smothers him with kindness. She shows him what its like to be needed, to be wanted, to be loved. What happens when things heat up between Colby and Rory??? Does she walk away knowing that when he graduates with the Air Force, he gets relocated to a different location, knowing she can not leave her family? She knows she can never move away?? Live and see what happens……Thats what she does..

Rory and Colby spend the next several months left of Colby’s flight schooling, getting closer and closer, falling more in love with each other each passing day. They share each others darkest secrets, replay each others nightmares to each other, experience life changing dates, and not knowingly, find their forevers.

But at what cost will it all come crashing down? Who will walk away? Who will fight with all they got when the dreaded orders come in?

Oh wait……. I thought I had this figured out…. Oh heck no……

Ms. Quinn you hands down did it with this book. I absolutely can not wait to see what happens in the next installment of this duet. I can only dream, I can only hope, and dammit, I am down right begging its as magical as this installment. Pick this one up, I recommend it to all of you loving that ultimate love story!!

About the Author


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!
