4 Star Review by Ashley
I mean really...Collide may have been a short little read but L.B. Dunbar packed it full of heat and heart.
Talk about wham- bam- thank you, sir! Ivy and Gage's first run in was sassy and sexy and over just as fast as it started.
Ivy may have kept her heart hidden but it was tender. It felt deeply. It had suffered a lot of pain and loss in her life. But holy smokes I LOVED me some Gage. How enamored he was with Ivy from the first meeting. How distance and time and circumstance didn't change that.
There was a lot of push and pull. Gage wanted in. Ivy wanted to be left alone. But she could only resist his charms for so long. It was a slow-ish burn. While there was no denying the sparks between these two, Gage wanted to do right by her. He even put his dreams in jeopardy to make that happen.
On a side note, it was fun seeing some of L.B. Dunbar's other characters make a guest appearance. From start to finish, Collide was a total swoon fest. Gage is what book boyfriend dreams are made of. He saw Ivy. Her pain. Her fear for what the future held. Her hopes. Her need for control and certainty. It was through his actions, not just his words that he proved himself to Ivy. And that ending, was the perfect to be continued for the rest of their lives.
