Seven minutes inside a hotel room with a complete stranger. A friendly greeting where we pretend to know each other well and are genuinely happy to see each other; then straight to business. None of it meaningful. None of it real. All of it rehearsed, choreographed, and expected. My life isn't my own anymore. I pretty much go wherever I'm told and put on the show. It's my ...more

Hi Maria! I'm so glad that you asked!
Due to the publisher of Collision closing (and under litigation), I have posted Collision on Wattpad. It is new and improved and has additional chapters, scenes and photos. I'd love for you to check it out and would appreciate it if you would add it to your library if you're on Wattpad.

What thing from merciful heavens happened here?


The gif speaks for itself. My emotion is on whirlwind that I don't really know what to do. I wept after reading it and I went to bed still weeping over it and when I woke up I remember I've read this and wept all over again.

I never really thought that this book would affect me this much. I mean, it really mess up my emotions and all. I don't really know where to start my review. Just remembering that I've read about Kei and Cab is enough for my te

Wow. Stefne Miller definitely has a talent. This book was incredible!
I just found this romance to be so, so sweet! Unlike the 90% of my books where the romance is steamy and hits off from the start, this one developed gradually and it was so sweet.
Cab's and Kei's transformations were jaw-opening. It was like they were a whole other person! My only fault was that I felt Cab became selfless a little too quickly. Then again, people do many things for love.
It was nice to get inside Cab'

Oh. My. God! Such a moving story. I am an emotional wreck.

An amazing story of Cab, who has it all but feels his life has no real meaning, and Kei, who expects nothing and has a true purpose. The blending of these two worlds is emotionally engaging. Life changing, for sure.

What an uplifting story. This book had a feeling of the movie a walk to remember. If you seen this movie then you'll know how this one will turn out.

Cabot and Kei made one of the most sweetest couples I've ever read about. Cabot was an actor whose life wasn't his own and Kei lived hers serving others in need.
Their time away from others to find peace fated their destiny and the time they had together taught both of them about hope and love. It was a bumpy road getting there but eventually thei

I wish more than anything that there was a 4.5 star rating. I LOVED THIS BOOK!

Congratulations, Stefne Miller, you won for most awesome book I’ve read in a long time.

As a writer who is a Christian (and don’t you dare stop reading this just because I said that word! Don’t you dare!), I had stopped reading Christian fiction because I was tired of it’s preachiness. I don’t want love to come softly! I want to be swept off my feet in an epic, relevant, titillating, relevant, ex

I started this book at 10 at night, absolutely sure that I would read one chapter then go to bed. That did not happen. What to know what happen? The first chapter hooked me in, that I stayed up reading till 1:30 am, with tears running down my face.

This book has ensnared me in so many ways. Everyone has the own journey to make. Have you ever met someone that completely changed your life? Someone who gave no judgment but offered a pure and lovely friendship? I have. I will never forget

To say I love this book is an understatement. This book goes beyond the YA contemporary romance and brings so much raw emotion to the real world. I adored the romance, got swept away by the story, laughed, cried, and found myself inspired by the characters. This is now one of my favorite YA reads and Stefne Miller a new favorite author. I can not recommend this book enough. If you like contemporary romance but want something with its own brand of YA magic, pick up Collision.

Stefne Miller is one of those people who has this crazy amount of talent that I can't even really fathom it. With each book, she just proves this more and more, and Collision, it was her best book yet. Collision was one of those books that just felt right. And I'm not really sure if that makes sense as a statement, but everything about Collision like it was just meant to be.

Collision's story was just beautiful. Beautiful and entrancing to a T. I was smiling like a fool for a good por

So, how does Collision compare to Vain? I'm afraid Vain is better. Collision is the less fun, less sexy, more traumatic and more Christian version of Vain. I have to say this though, if the book was in Kei's perspective, I probably would've liked it a lot more. Kei made the book, really.

What I didn't like
I didn't like how the author would throw out strong emotions without really backing them up. It's a showing vs. telling problem.
The book lacked coherency and direction. A lot of floating around

Best book I have ever read! This is Stefne Miller's best book yet! Better than Salvaged and Rise, and I didn't think that was possible!

After reading Salvaged and Rise by Stefne Miller, I was convinced it would be impossible for her to come up with something better then these two stories. I love to be proven wrong!

I believe contemporary fans who read Young Adult and Adult novels alike, will love this story. It's one of the most inspirational stories I have read and I easily fell in love with Cabot and Kei from the start.
Cabot, a 23 year old famous movie star, is loved by screaming fans everywhere he goes.

gosh, i feel bad giving this only a three star rating. with all the five star ratings in the front page, i had so much expectations for this book. Cab is a celebrity, and he was supposed to be my cup of tea. Kei had the attitude that i loved so dearly that the ending broke my heart. The plot could've been so powerful and amazing if only Stefne Miller wrote better.
what i love: Kei and all of Cab's stay in Uganda. enough said.
now for a small rant: i'm not sure if i'm the only one who noticed or if

This is the first book that I've read this month that really had me crying A LOT and I've read this for a straight 5 hours , I really like reading a book that i like not stopping once I've started it.

I'm only 14 and even though I still don't understand how the world really functions because I haven't seen most of it yet , I felt really soft inside and that is a really nice feeling.

What happens when the glamorous world of Hollywood fame and fortune collides with the dedication and determination of a life committed to meeting needs among the poorest peoples of a third world country?

Cabot whose world spins at a dizzying pace, has everything a man could ever want. Yet he’s lost himself.

Kei finds her life’s purpose in unselfish service to the beautiful people of Uganda who have nothing. It just so happens that her life of sacrifice provides a perfect place to hide.

I can only describe this book with one word:
I think that I've never cried so much as I did with this story.
It is totally emotive, magic, inspiring but mostly Realistic.

This book make me realize that out there somewhere there are a lot of persons with less things and with a tragic past but they smile and are more happy than us; because they learn how to go through the experience that god gave to them.
But they still need us, just a friend.

I can't explain the impact this book has made on me. I am still asking myself, "What do I need to do as a result of reading this book?" I know that it was no accident I read this book and I am still amazed that I was this affected by a work of fiction!! What a testament to the author. The characters and their stories are captivating. I became so emotionally involved with them that they almost became real to me. This book is a definite must read!

It started out to be a 5 -huge- stars reading...I was so sure of that.What happened?....I can't stand people and books that preach or try to send or sell moral messages or talk in detail about the third world problems.I know I may sound like an insensitive bitch but I dislike too moral people and saints.
The real rating is 2 stars but usually save it for a really bad book and this one wasn't the worst I have read,I settled for a 3.

In a nutshell, here is what you are going to get from COLLISION . . .

It’s going to grab you, suck you in. It’s going to make you laugh and cry. You’ll want to be a part of the world that Cabot and Kei create. This riveting tale of life and love is an absolute must read.

Cab Stone is Hollywood’s hottest star. He can’t go to the grocery store without being photographed. He can’t walk down the street without fans chasing after him. Its been said that he’s dated every co-star,

I have read and loved Stefne Miller's previous books, Salvaged and Rise, but there is no doubt in my mind that this is her best yet. Collision made me laugh, cry, scream, and rejoice. It has earned the honor of being on my favorites shelf and I know I will reread this one many times in the future.

Cabot is an easy guy to like. He's a famous actor so he's rich and all the girls love him. He knows this and he knows that he is totally arrogant. Still, he is sweet, kind, funny, and all around wonder

It’s been quite a long time since a book had totally blown me away. I’m glad I read Collision because it just did that and more!

I do not know where to start with this review. I can’t honestly think of Collision without wanting to cry. Seriously, what had this book done to my emotions? After I read it, it left me so wrecked. I was crying my heart out in my room in the middle of the night that my parent
