'When We Collide' Book Tour - Review & Giveaway


When We Collide

Talk about a book I couldn't put down! Once I started reading this intense love story, I was hard-pressed to be pulled away from it for feeding nor anything else. William has a recurring dream that haunts him and seems to potentially be coming true when he comes home for his aunt's death. Maggie is traumatized by her past and her current situation. The two of them share a deep secret, parts of which are unknown to one of them. As the truth unfolds, the pages fly past as you hope for the best possible outcome.

I often felt my heart jump up into my throat, as my eyes held back tears as William and Maggie alternated telling their story. They seamlessly narrate their past and present as they seek to build their future. The horrors that Maggie has endured and the love that William has for her seem to balance out each other. It's heartbreaking to know that the ugly has to exist to balance and uphold the beauty.

You don't know if the book is going to have a happy ending or a sad one. I won't tell you either way. All I will say is that I did cry at the end of it. You will be on the edge of your seat as the story reaches its climax.

One thing I also loved is that at the end of the book, the author makes available resources for any readers who are being abused, or who know someone who is being abused. No one should have to live like Maggie, nor in any other abusive relationship.
William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again.
In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.

But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.
