Is this a cliff hanger book? I’m looking for something to read on my vacation next month but don’t want to be left with a cliff hanger.

Actually, I take that back. It was pretty awful. Where to start with this mess? I cannot begin to explain how ridiculously annoying it is when a character laughs with almost everything they say, as if every word out of their mouth is funny enough to warrant a laugh.
Not to mention the fac Spoilers are likely, so if that isn’t your thing, feel free to ignore this review entirely.
Not to mention the fact that, in this case, it was used as a dialogue tag. This means that it should be punctuated differently. A period is needed as a separator between the action and the dialogue, not a comma. While I had many issues with this book, the biggest annoyance for me was Emily herself. The girl was a martyr to the extreme. Dillon manipulated her at every turn because she allowed it. She was blind because she refused to accept what was right in front of her face.
Everyone could see Dillon for who he truly was, everyone but her.
She accepted every excuse he threw at her. If only the same applied for Gavin. Dillon was possessive, controlling, and manipulative. I didn’t understand what Emily saw in him. I didn’t find him all that appealing, not even before he started showing his true colors. He had d-bag written all over him. Closing the door behind him, he shed the rest of his clothing and tossed them into a pile. Dillon walked into the bathroom, turned on the shower, and got in.
Did you cover yourself up?
Good Lord, did he expect her to go swimming fully collife After downing a shot of tequila, a slight pang of guilt for not giving Dillon the little he had asked from her hit the pit of her stomach. She actually felt guilty for turning him down for sex. I mean, sure, he was sweet and all, but after a while, I just felt sorry for him. To his credit, he did eventually come clean, but, by that point, I was over his cowardice.
Collide (Collide, #1)
He talked a big game, but that was about it—all talk, no action. He more or less tolerated Dillon for reasons unknown. I found the book as a whole to be somewhat boring, and by somewhat I mean completely. It was melodramatic, predictable, and overly long and wordy. The plot relied too heavily on contrived miscommunication and misunderstandings. Basically, it was angst for the sake of colllide.
It had potential, but fell short on delivery. At coklide glance, I thought the couple on the book cover was two women. View all 31 comments. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Oh sugar, big problem for me. I have to say, of the three major characters — that is Gavin, Dillon, and Emily — Gavin was the least objectionable.
He was a tad too mushy and “in-touch” with his feelings for my taste; otherwise, not horrible. Dillon, what a d-bag.
Collide (Collide, #1) by Gail McHugh (1 star ratings)
I do not understand Emily’s relationship with him. We, as readers, are supposed to bu Okay, what the hell? We, as readers, are supposed to buy that he was sweet and charming before New York and then flipped the switch? Colljde transition was too abrupt for me, especially considering I did not get the chance to meet him before this gaul. From the beginning, this girl has no backbone. This made it extremely difficult for me to relate to her.
And it gets worse from there. Not only was she weak, but she was inconsistent. For example, her reaction to Gina. Earlier in the book, she actually sees Dillon and Monica kissing and takes him back.
However, when she sees Ggail open the door sans pants, she completely freaks, cuts all communication with Gavin allowing him no explanationand gets back together with Dillon the manhandling s. On one hand, I understand her reaction with Gavin was supposed to be more dramatic because she feels deeper for him.
On the other, her not even talking to him or confronting him about it? As such, I was unable to understand Gavin’s love for her. She just didn’t seem worthy. collie

Also, I didn’t like that it never once entered her head to just be alone. She’s incapable of seeing her options. Why doesn’t she see that she does not have to be with either Gavin or Dillon. They are not her only choices! The ending is what really threw me over gai edge. She lets Dillon rape her!!!
The book ends with her leaving Dillon asleep to run back to Gavin. Before leaving Dillon, she whispers a soft goodbye; no venom, no sarcasm, no nothing. Clolide, he basically just raped you! I really didn’t like this book.
