Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Loved to Hate, but It Lucked Out and Ended on Love

Collide  - Gail McHugh

Many others have said it, and I must reiterate the idea: I loved hating this book. It's contradictory, I know, but seriously- Assclown cheating boyfriend, and the girl that just rolled over and took it, and then the billionaire 'fuckable' man that falls in love at first sight. Seems like an almost generic romance character line-up, but it someone sucked me right in. Go figure.

 

I've got a few warnings coming up... let's start with the fact that this book involves cheating.  It's not the total balls-to-the-wall cheating, but rather more of a dipping it's toe (and maybe breast) into cheating.  It skirts that edge, sometimes, and outright crosses the line at other times.  I still DID get the idea that it really was fought against.  It wasn't like they were next door to asshat bumping and grinding... and at least at one time there was a 'break' (think Ross and Rachel).  Boils down to the fact that no matter how much you sugar coat it, you have to not have a block or automatic loathing of cheating books.  If you hate that kind of thing, you're going to hate this- so just put the book down and walk away now.

 

If you're still here, then I'm assuming you either don't mind about the cheating, or maybe want to find out more to decide to read it or not.  So now, I must warn you about the ending... it's kind of a 'hopeful' cliffhanger, but I'd DEFINITELY put it in the 'Happy' section.  IT NEEDED TO HAPPEN.  If it hadn't I would have had to pee on the book or something.  Sorry that's crude, but that assclown NEEDED to be beat up, kicked, and peed on (IMO)... actually that's still not even bad enough for that douchcanoe.   It's a punch in the gut (yes, we're back to the ending again), but I'm happy about it. Had to get book #2 like IMMEDIATELY, I jut HAD to know what happens next.  (*please say there is an eventual HEA!)

*Listened to the audio book - the narrator was OK. Not fantabulous, but OK. Did NOT like Fallen's voice though. It sounded like a cross dresser male trying to sound like a female. *Shudder* (Not that there is anything wrong with cross dressing guys- more power to you, but for a female narrator and a female character, it was just WRONG for a female character to sound like it's a guy trying to talk like a girl.)
