Sum It Up! I fell instantly for Gavin Blake


A missed first encounter…
Colliding with a second chance…
On the heels of graduating college and trying to cope with her mother’s death, Emily Cooper moves to New York City for a fresh start.
While harboring secrets of his own, Dillon Parker takes care of Emily through her grief. Knowing he can’t live without her by his side, he’s sweet, thoughtful, and everything Emily has ever wanted in a man.
Until she meets Gavin Blake—a rich and notorious playboy who is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Emily tries to deny the instant connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome is not inclined to let go so easily. Recovering from his own painful past, Gavin will stop at nothing to win Emily over.
This unexpected encounter compels Emily to question her decisions, forcing her to make a choice that will destroy friendships, shatter hearts, and forever change her life.(Goodreads)
I have had my eye on Collide for a couple of weeks since the summary has “Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome” I knew this would be just the right read for me and it was. I fell instantly for Gavin Blake and all his smexyness however, Emily at times I wanted to reach out and smack her! But let’s face it that is what makes a good read when you connect to character’s so much that you can picture yourself giving them a piece of your mind. Right?
Emily has moved to New York to be near her boyfriend (Dillon) after finishing college and just losing her mother. She loves him especially after all his kindness with helping her with her mother but she wants to take things slow and live with her BFF from college and work on finding a teaching job. She ends up working at a local restaurant where she crosses paths with Gavin and there is an immediate attraction that she has to deny but the last thing she expected was Gavin is actually a friend of Dillon’s. So you can imagine the angst in this one!
I really enjoyed Collide but at times it was predictable and like I mentioned before Emily gave me a rash from frustration but all that is forgiven because Gavin is my kind of man and I look forward to reading the next installment!


  1. A little formula but if it aint broke right? Gavin sounds like a real show stopper for you to overlook some of the story's predictability.
