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.
I´m so mad right now ( Meltdown Moment), I don't have the words to explain what I´m feeling.
Why oh why summer is 4 months from now? I can’t take this...
Absolutely PERFECT, this is the one thing I can say about this book PERFECT.
I can’t believe I was able to finish it, and I say this because all the way through the book my heart was getting squeezed little by little. This was excruciatingly amazing.
I loved the book, I am mad for certain, I just want Dillon to drop dead (I never thought I would wish this on someone and yeah yeah I know is a fictional character :P ), and leave Gavin and Emily alone.
Gavin is absolutely amazing, he always knows the perfect thing to say to express is love, and I applaud him for trying to be the decent guy. He was hurting from not being able to have her, and by knowing the bastard Dillon is, but he made everything perfectly. He didn´t step any boundaries, he always respected her, always had her in his mind and he wasn´t about to let her face Dillon alone. It takes a pretty decent man to always put her first despite the hurt in his heart.
Emily made me mad a few times, but I completely understand her, it wasn´t as simple has that to forget what Dillon had done for her in those months she needed the support. But damn it took her long enough to see the true Dillon. Ok I guess with all the pressure she endures with both feelings, it took a toll on her, but come on you have this amazing guy in front of you and you take months to see he´s completely head over heels and would do absolutely everything for you?
AAAAAWWWWWWWWWW I just wanted to scream at that, God it made me mad.
And of course Gina had to come in to the picture again to ruin the perfect moment, now in that moment I just wanted to throw my tablet to the wall. Come on you see the girl there and instead of confronting him you vouch? I would kick her ass and make him explain himself. I wouldn´t believe him either but at least I would have that satisfaction :P
Sure at that moment I understood she was mad, but not mad enough to get back to stupid Dillon. Better be left alone than to go to that bastard again. But ok, that just fueled me a bit more. ( Now I´m fuming, steam is coming out of my ears)
The final chapter was the stone that broke my heart to pieces, I really loved this book, I cried with them, I got immensely mad and cursed both Gavin, Emily and Dillon to hell, I laughed :) and got jealous when after they made love Gavin told her those beautiful words (I don't think that after years of reading books I ever read such a beautiful announcement of love from a guy before. It was just heartbreaking, in a very good way of course. I melted and ooohhhh the entire speech :) the guy is just adorable. ( This reviewer is not a romantic person at all, but in that moment she was giggling like a school girl )
The only thing I can say after all this drama and heartbreak is that the author made an extraordinary job with this book and I can wait to read Pulse ( sequel).
And a warning ( I know this is a book... It doesn´t matter, I´m that crazy) but I will kill Dillon with my bare hands if he makes anything to hurt these two ( I guess I have to train my upper body strength because I know for sure that will happen :P ).
Now seriously I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED Collide. It was just mind breaking, heart swelling BEAUTIFUL !!!
