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.

It was a fascinating premise, and I think it was executed well. Not sure why I couldn't finish it.
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.
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.
I have never listened to one of Lily Bask's performances before. She was great here on Collide.
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.
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.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
I do not care for the 'time space' continual.
Make it all in the here and now
Johnny-her portrayal of his East Coast accent is spot on - from this native of New England!
This will be a good listen for those who like things a bit out of the norm. I only bought it because it was Megan Hart and I love almost everything by her except 'Deeper' which is similar-time travel.
Strong language and sexual content
Not much of anything
Too many to write about
Don't waste your money & time.
Interesting plot requires suspension of belief but characters engaging. Narrator's elder female voice difficult to get past. Try to get on sale. Much better than Tempted or Naked.
It may have gotten better but after 4 hours I could not listen to anymore. I downloaded this basted on the ratings and wish I had not.
I liked this book, was not sure how this book was going to end. Happy ending and unexpected. Remember some of these characters and coffee shop for her future book, I always love seeing how she intertwines the characters from other stories. It makes me want to go back and reread the past stories to find the old characters. lol
Yes Yes this was the most touching story about love that makes you want to laugh,cry and wish you had a Johnny of your very own.
When Edward reads the poem he wrote about M
This would make a great Movie!!!!!!!!
I love all of Megan Hart's books & Collide was no exception. I couldn't stop listening to find out what was going to happen next. Perfect mix of romance & mystery! I only wish Audible carried ALL of Megan Hart's books!!!
