Book Review: Collide (Vol 1) by Gail McHugh – FIVE STARS!!!

Book Review:  Collide (Vol 1) by Gail McHugh – FIVE STARS!!!

Product DetailsOMG!!!!  I just finished this book!   I started it yesterday and was up until 3am reading it this morning, when I finally had to force myself to go to sleep because I had to be up at 6.  As soon as I got home from work, I immediately dove it.   My emotions, right now, are all over the place.  I am hoping I can put coherent thoughts together long enough to make a decent review.

Holy Cow – where do I begin….Let’s start with the synopsis:

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.

This book (the first of a 2 part series) encompassed it all…..

I empathized with Emily with the loss of a parent, and fear of the unknown.   At briefly appreciated the first signs of possessiveness of her boyfriend, Dillon.  I mean come on, what girl doesn’t want their man to feel a little possessive every now and again.  And how he took care of her….how can you not love him for late?  Later, I wanted to beat the crap out of the guy. 

Emily drove me nuts……how can she believe a guy who lies to her over and over and not believe the one who is honest?    Yet, I felt for her……to feel obligated to one love and so passionate for another.   To stare at temptation…….i remember that feeling and remember how scary it is trying to make the right decision.
I immediately fell in love with Gavin.  I loved his playfulness, his passion, his banter, his will-power and yet the lack of will-power.  My heart broke for him.  I became his #1 cheerleader.  Inside my head, I SCREAMED at him when he made one very stupid decision. 
“Your mind and your body will never forget the things I’m going to do to you tonight.   Every…single…inch of your body if going to feel me”
And what a cliffhanger ending!!!  I gotta change my ways – waiting for sequels is killing me. I keep saying I am no longer going to read a series until each book has been published.  But I am such a sucker and must enjoy being tortured.  This book ended with my pulse quickened and breathless.   Summer can’t get here soon enough – when Pulse, book 2 of the 2 part series, is released!!!!
