How do you keep existing when your heart is so splintered, so completely torn to shreds, your pulse is fading?

You’re…broken. How do you move forward when every breath is nothing more than a constant ache? Living becomes an insidious reminder that you threw away the single largest part of yourself. Your…soul. No amount of distraction can pull you from the torture of losing your…life.

Now that Emily Cooper has walked away from her first love, she finds herself running toward her only love. Unraveling fast, but clinging to hope, Emily risks all she has left on the man that has consumed her every thought and dream since the day they met. Will Gavin take her back? And if so, will their reunion be a collision of two hearts destined to complete one another and rekindle a love that knew no boundaries? Or will scars from their past rip open, tearing slowly at what each of them was meant to be? Can fate, the ultimate game changer, mend the shattered road it laid out from the start?

Only time will tell…

Tick-Tock…

review

My thoughts…

I had such high hopes for this one. I really did. Sadly though it fell short. There was too much sex and little storyline. I know you’re thinking “Too much sex?” Yes, too much sex. I prefer to have a storyline in my books. One where sex is not the main focus. If I want to read sex, sex, and more sex scenes I’d read erotica for that. That’s pretty much all I could say about this one. I just couldn’t continue. I found myself getting bored with it and decided I’d had enough.

 Stars

A missed first encounter…

Colliding with a second chance…

On the heels of graduating college and trying to cope with her mother’s death, Emily Cooper moves to New York City for a fresh start.

While harboring secrets of his own, Dillon Parker takes care of Emily through her grief. Knowing he can’t live without her by his side, he’s sweet, thoughtful, and everything Emily has ever wanted in a man.

Until she meets Gavin Blake—a rich and notorious playboy who is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Emily tries to deny the instant connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome is not inclined to let go so easily. Recovering from his own painful past, Gavin will stop at nothing to win Emily over.

This unexpected encounter compels Emily to question her decisions, forcing her to make a choice that will destroy friendships, shatter hearts, and forever change her life.

review

Omigosh! I loved this book. I really did, but…

Emily. She got on my nerves quite a few times. She really needed to grow a backbone. When it came to Dillon she just rolled with the punches. She never stood up to him and that made me not like her very much. In the end though I started to warm up to her.

Dillon was a total douche canoe. To say I didn’t like him is an understatement. He was a big jerk and treated Emily terribly. Why she stayed with him after the way he treated her is beyond me. Even thinking about him now pisses me off haha

Gavin on the other hand was Zomg. Amazing! I loved everything about him. He’s described as Mr. Tall, Dark, and Fuckable Handsome. He’s portrayed as a player in he beginning, but I didn’t get that vibe from him. I really liked him and I wanted Emily to pick him.

Together these three make this story really, really good. It’s a love triangle and there’s a lot of back in forth on the heroines part.

This story sucked me in from page one and didn’t let me go until the end. One thing I didn’t like about it was that it ends with a cliffhanger. There are things that are left unresolved and need to be addressed and I’m hoping that will happen in book two. I’m really looking forward to reading it and am happy to say that it’s already been released.

Overall, Collide is a great read by a new to me author. It was recommended to me and I’m glad I took a chance on this one.
