Collide, by Gail McHugh


My review: 4 crazy stars  (out of 5)


They are all freaking crazy.

No one was innocent. I've never read a book where I've been completely repulsed by all the characters in the story.

Maybe I'm exaggerating. Maybe. But I just finished this book, like, 30 seconds ago and am still trying to wipe away the bad after taste.

Emily Cooper

Emily moves to New York, on her boyfriends dime, but lives with her friend Olivia (who hates Emily's boyfriend and always tells him so, makes for very awkward situations). But Emily soon meets Gavin and they have an insta connection. Wouldn't you know it though, Gavin and Emily's boyfriend (Dillon) are friends.

Gavin Blake

From there things get worse. Emily gets engaged to Dillon. Gavin and her continue an affair, that all their friends know about, except Dillon. Dillon's not completely innocent, he seems to be having his own affair, that everyone knows about except Emily. But two wrongs don't make a right.

As you can see the book is one big MESS.

But I loved the craziness of it and will be reading the sequel to see what these low moral characters will do.

Hopefully Emily will grow a pair and just go out on her own for a while. Chick has some major issues!
