Publisher's Summary

A childhood accident left Emmaline vulnerable to disturbing fugue states that last minutes but feel like an eternity. The blackouts are unsettling but manageable... until she meets Johnny Dellasandro.

The painter gained fame in the '70s for his debauched lifestyle and raunchy art films. His naked body achieved cult status, especially in Emm's mind - she's obsessed with the man, who's grown even sexier with age. Today he shuns the spotlight and Emm... until she falls into a fugue on his doorstep.

In that moment, she's transported back 30 years, crashing a party at Johnny's place. The night is a blur of flesh and heat that lingers long after she's woken to the present.

It happens again and again, each time-slip a mind-blowing orgy, and soon Emm can't stop, though every episode leaves her weaker. She's scared by what's happening, but she's even more terrified of losing this portal to the Johnny she wants so badly. The one who wants her and takes her - every chance he gets.

    "excellent...with her the whole time. love is great"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Collide to be better than the print version?

    didn't read print version


    What other book might you compare Collide to and why?

    so different from anything listened to or read. Didn't know where Megan Hart was going but wanted to stay with her til the end.


    What does Lily Bask bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her characterizations and the pace and just loved her accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Love is timeless.


    Any additional comments?

    Will probably listen to this book again and again.

    "So glad I Collided with this story"

    Megan Hart has done it again. I love the way she weaves a story with mystery, suspense and a little spice... well a whole lot of spice. I could not stop listening to this one; I have been on an all-day listening fest.

    "Excellent"

    Megan Hart really knows how to weave a story. This was so good I had a hard time putting it down. Lily Bask was the perfect narrator for the story, I loved her New York accent of Johnny. Can't wait for the next Megan Hart book.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "Interesting..."

    I really enjoyed this book although the end leaves you hanging. The main characters Emm and Jonny are connected and your not really sure how or way. I think if their is a sequel it will explain more. However, the sex is very hot and who doesn't like that? All in all a fun story!

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Interesting Story"

    This was definitely a new type of story and it was interesting. I don't think it's one that I'd care to listen to again and also I'd prefer to get this one on sale instead of using a credit. I just couldn't get into this one. Maybe because Johnny had went on to marry several women and have several kids. It somehow makes their love not as intense as it should be. So it's just an OK listen for me.

    "So, disappointed!!"

    I was very disappointed with the language in this book! I honestly think it should have been one in the Erotica section so that a person wouldn't pay for something they didn't intend on hearing. I think a rating might be nice before we purchase.

    "A different Megan Hart"

    This one was different. I like Megan Hart because she goes to places that are just "out there", like having a husband who is paralyzed or some other situation that does not at all seem erotic but is. But usually they aren't "out there" like this. It was good anyway, just a bit harder to buy into than the others.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    It was a fascinating premise, and I think it was executed well. Not sure why I couldn't finish it.

    "Loved It!"
    Where does Collide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is Megan Hart's best so far. I didn't know what to think when I read what the book was about. It sounded confusing to me. However, I am so glad that I purchased it and listened to it. I loved it. I will buy Tear You Apart tomorrow to see how that one goes. Keep up the great work..By the way the narrator is awesome. She is so good with the "Johnny" accent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Collide?

    one of the most memorable moments of Collide is the end! Don't want to describe it because I don't want to give it away.


    Have you listened to any of Lily Bask’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to one of Lily Bask's performances before. She was great here on Collide.
