I so loved these two stories so much. Just so beautiful and so romantic. The romance between Grace and Zayne was just the best. Thank you Melissa. I just couldn't put put down. Now I just want to read it again. And such a beautiful ending too!

Grace Morgan would have you believe she is your average college graduate, but the truth is she has been hiding within herself for about five years now. She hasn’t been the same since her high school boyfriend died in an awful accident. Grace fears falling in love and being normal, she is so afraid it will be taken away from her again.

Zayne Evans is a player, plain and simple. He also happens to be Grace’s brother’s best friend and business partner. Yet knowing this doesn’t change Grace from imm

Great read. Kept me interested. Ready for next book

This book was gifted to me by the author to get my honest review.

I am 100% certain this book is one of the most captivating books I have ever read. Not only is it written so well it makes it the most easy read for anyone but it is practically flawless in terms of any grammatical errors too.

I have read many amazing books which I had to review and they all lacked small things. This book was just outstanding from start to finish!

This book was won in a goodreads giveaway! I love the chemistry between Zayne and Grace. I love the tragic past that Grace has to overcome. I love the fact that their relationship must stay secret. I hate the fact that I have to read another book to find out what happens next in their story. :-) This book caught me very early on and kept me reading at a fast pace. I needed to know where the chemistry between them was going to take the two of them...but I must wait until I read Embrace. The only ...more

Collide is a perfect title for Grace and Zane's story. Grace is a college graduate who is moving to New York to try to move past losing the one person she had forever with. Zane is what every woman wants and plenty have had. The week at the lake house was all it takes to make Grace question her feelings toward Zane. This is a wonderful read and is one that you won't be able to put down.

Another great read by Melissa Toppen

Another great read by Melissa Toppen. The characters are so believable and you just can't help connecting with them. A heartfelt storyline and I can't wait to read the next book. Definitely a must read.

Loved the reawakening for grace. The uncertainty from Zane. Leading to well written not over the top sex scenes.. More please

I liked this book but have to say that I had a hard time relating to Zayne. I thought he was a bit selfish and though I get he lost his friend from something he did in his past, I had a hard time with how he treated Grace.

Will review books 1 and 2 together.
Got tired of all the: let's do this, wait we shouldn't, but we should, but we can't tell anyone, but we shouldn't, but we did again, but we shouldn't. And we still can't tell anyone.

This is not your usual angst-ridden NA book, although the themes are all there. Instead of anger, depression, and lashing out, Grace deals with her past tragedy by putting on a bright face and hiding her pain. The well-developed characters were what pulled this book up into the "good" category for me. The book could have used better editing. The constant errors were enough to drive my perfectionist personality crazy, but the book was still readable in spite of them (it was that good a plot).

I absolutely loved Grace and Zayne's story. I couldn't put their story down. If I'm ever in a book slump this is the author I now turn to. She never disappoints me. While I'm a little heart broken right now, I can't wait to read the next instalment in this series. Yes there is a small cliff hanger but I can go straight into book two.

Loved this book.
Zayne is Gracies older brothers best friend and off limits, he's older he's a player and he's Hot.
Gracie is a good girl who wants the bad boy.
Their chemistry is undeniable, and quickly grows.
I love the secondary characters too, Emma cracks me up, the friendships are probably my favorite parts of the story. Oh and the hot sex. Another great read by Melissa

When I first started this book I wasn't sure I was going to like I t but the more I read the more engrossed I became and couldn't put it down. Now I have purchased book 2 and going to finish the story .

You will truly feel the emotion of the characters in the way this book is written. Grace and Zayne's story is like watching two stars collide, you know it will be hot but no one can truly no the aftermath. Wonderfully written, page turning and will have you one clicking the next book.

I enjoyed this story and I so hope that Grace does not forgive the asshat Zayne. He knew what he was doing. He is an unfaithful man. Besides his brother should not let it happen. Yes Grace is a grown woman but I do hope she uses her head.
