"Cab Stone has it all—fame, fortune and the adoration of millions of women across the globe. When the constant attention from fans and expectations from his handlers becomes too much, he escapes the craziness of press junkets and movie sets and escapes to Asheville, North Carolina to hide away for the summer.
He expects peace, quiet, and solitude. What he doesn’t expect is to meet a fiery redhead who changes everything he knows about the world.
The daughter of missionaries, Kei Sallee lives a life of service to others. She has little, expects less, and helps heal the hearts of thousands in Uganda, where she grew up. When she finds herself staying in the same guesthouse as Cab Stone, she vows to ignore his Greek god good looks and spend the summer as she had planned—in peace, quiet, and solitude.
Cab and Kei’s lives couldn’t be more different…or more the same.
Despite, or perhaps because of, their vastly different yet startlingly similar backgrounds, Cab and Kei strike up an unlikely friendship that could possibly blossom into something more. But Kei fears that the truth about her past will prevent pretty-boy Cab, who is used to getting everything he wants, from fully committing to her.
When two completely different worlds experience a Collision, can they exist as one?"
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 their 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 my first godly mentor and leader. Like a painting, Collision is painted with an collide of colors that will leave you breathless with the most beautiful painting you have ever seen.
The plot of the book rocked. Very intriguing, after chapter one, I tell myself, “one more chapter.” I ended up just deciding to read the whole book because there’s was no way I was going to put it down. Both Cab and Kei are amazing characters with lives that draw in the reader. The way they attract each other leaves such a smile on my face.
Their love is one of kind. The purest of love that I have ever read. Their love is not lustful or fake. It’s real and heart-moving. Ms. Miller does a great job in getting the readers to really invest their feelings in her characters as if they are real. There are several parts in the story where even I felt their romance beating in my chest.
The ending of the book, is…well I’m not going to spoil it. Just know that when you read this book, there is so much more that what you see. The bigger picture of the book isn’t revealed to the end, and then you understand why their lives had to collide. Why they had to meet to mold each other. Each of them had a journey. A journey, in which their life affects the other. It’s beautiful and breathtaking.
Collision is ultimately a life changing book. There is a saying, “Some people comes into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.” That is Collision. The value of this book is an experience that everyone should take. Collision delivers a sensory-overload that explodes in every heart that reads this story. Breath-takingly beautiful, Collision is astounding!
I give it 5 BITES!
