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.

Collide is an addictive love triangle!

I have a serious love/hate relationship with this damn book. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster! I loved it , I hated it, it made me laugh, cry, I screamed and shouted, the twists and turns had me frustrated- I was all over the place, but I loved every second of it! The summer after her senior year of college, Emily moves from her home in Colorado to New York City to be closer to her boyfriend Dillon. Since her mother died of breast cancer, she has nothing to keep her there. She moves in with her best friend and college room mate, Olivia and gets a job waitressing for the summer while she applies for teaching jobs. On her first day at the restaurant, Emily makes a delivery on her way home... To Gavin Blake’s office. Gavin and Emily both feel an instant attraction, a spark right away. There's an instant connection between Emily and Gavin, but of course she avoids and rejects all his advances, the problem is, Gavin and Dillon are friends (not best friends but friends) never the less, it still means that it's impossible for Gavin and Emily to avoid each other... As time passes by, the feelings they have for each other just intensifies. The connections and friendships you don’t expect and the events that have a domino effect on the entire story line. Normally, I am not the biggest fan of love triangles. I always feel bad for someone... except when a member of the triangle is a jerk. That always helps. Certain things about this story reminded me of Thoughtless, the angsty love triangle and all. Seriously. If you hate love triangles or wishy washy heroines who've got men falling over them, this book is not your cup of tea. If you can handle all that, then you must BUY THIS AUDIOBOOK!

Love this story !!

If you could sum up Collide in three words, what would they be?

It's great how the right guy gets the right girl and the bad guy gets what he deserves. I really enjoyed it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gavin was determined but still gave Emily space. So definitely Gavin.

What does Mary Kowal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice is easy to listen to, she did a good job with changing her voice with caricature.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was hard to have to put the story away for the night. I wanted to continue listening....

Any additional comments?

Well done!

Been there

What would have made Collide better?

Less and less explicit sex scenes, more story and depth

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I liked the parts of the story where something actually happened, e.g. the part in the park

What character would you cut from Collide?

None, the characters were well chosen

Any additional comments?

I did not like the book that much as I had expected to find more body to the story. I personally found the story very predictable, focusing mainly on the sex scenes, and less on the events.
