Blurb: Shayne thinks he has nothing left to lose…

On his way home after losing his job, Shayne’s bad day goes farther downhill when a truck slams into him. The sexy man who pulls him from the wreckage, seeing him at his lowest, is either the best or worst thing to happen to Shayne in a long time.

Challenge accepted…

While Lincoln feels guilty for totaling Shayne’s car, he can’t regret having met the man. Something about Shayne calls to him on a new level and brings out a side in him even Lincoln can’t explain.

When these two opposites collide it’s only a matter a time before one falls.

Shayne’s first love will always be hockey. With the out-of-work goalie on the hunt for a new team, Lincoln knows their time together is short-lived. It’ll take a veteran player to sneak past the guard on Lincoln’s heart, but Shayne is up for the fight.


Review: I had no idea what to expect when I read Collide, but it wasn’t the feel good, sweet and sexy, but kind of funny story that I got. Just from the title and the blurb alone, I was under the impression it was going to be a bit angsty. I was looking forward to the angst, but wasn’t disappointed with what I got instead, if that makes any sense.

I think what I loved so much was Lincoln and his over-the-top personality. He knew how to take a bad situation and see the positives, and even make it funny. Poor Shayne had lost his career and gets into an accident on the same day, but somehow his knight in scrubs was able to make him smile, make him feel, and make him happy. How is it possible to have the best day of your life on one that should have been your worst? Lincoln was that kind of man.

This was a short but very enjoyable read, one that I read straight through in one sitting and finished with a smile on my face. I was looking for angst, but what I got was a lovely story of two men who completed each other, made my heart happy, and left me looking forward to the next book in this new series.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
