A passion-wrought novel rich in drama and heartbreak, Collide tells the story of Emily Cooper, a young woman fresh on the heels of college graduation and the unexpected death of her mother. Torn between Dillon Parker, her seemingly perfect boyfriend, and Gavin Blake, a wealthy and intriguing playboy, Emily must make a choice that will destroy friendships, shatter hearts, and forever change her life.
Dillon Parker has been sweet, thoughtful, and generous through Emily’s loss, and she can’t imagine her life without him—even as her inner voice tells her to go slow. Then she meets Gavin Blake. A rich and notorious playboy, Gavin is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Their first encounter is brief, but it’s enough to inflame Emily’s senses. When their paths cross again through an unexpected mutual acquaintance, she tries to deny the connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome won’t let go so easily. As she discovers Gavin’s pain-filled past, and Dillon’s true nature begins to surface, Emily knows she must take action or risk destroying everyone—including herself. But how can she choose when she can’t trust her own heart?
The highly anticipated sequel to Collide, Pulse, continues Emily and Gavin’s story as their love is tested and their relationship is pushed to the brink. Emily will have to find the confidence to fight for their love and bring Gavin back from the edge, even if it means giving everything to make their love last.
