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…

The second part of Collide is probably much better than the first as it holds a bit more action and more a more plausible storyline and set of characters. This book is about how Emily and Gavin finally get together for good and fight against whatever odds are thrown in their way as a consequence of their decision.

This part is a bit more drama/thriller like with action and more emotion than you could possibly bear! And I say that because now that Gavin and Emily are together, this book holds countless I love you’s and eternal love declarations. It starts becoming a bit cheesy and you start to just want to skip the pages where they declare their love to each other (repeatedly using the same words of choice) but other than that it was a more than enjoyable read – very long (and worth the money) – for a very nice (and sometimes cheesy story) with a happy ending.

I really recommend this is, like me, you are into chic flicks and some of the cheesy stuff too. And don’t forget, there is a quite interesting storyline there, and Gail McHugh has a really good writing!
