Collide | [Megan Hart]

Collide

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.

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.

    "Hart's Best So Far"

    I had begun to think Broken was the high point of Hart's career--not that I haven't enjoyed her other titles, because I really, really have--but Broken was so the right mix of Hart's strengths. Until now. Collide is the book I've been hoping she'd write since I first discovered her. It's unabashedly romantic. Its main character is actually fully supported by her friends and family, not bogged down and fighting them, which is a very welcome change. It's fresh yet complex, just the way I like a good Megan Hart book to be. And it's also, quite possibly, the most light-hearted of her books that I've read so far, though that's not to say that it's facile, or even light-hearted compared to other authors in this genre. I really loved it.

    Story
    "Romance and Sci-Fy at it's best"
    Would you listen to Collide again? Why?

    I could and will listen to this one again. Johnny and Emmaline's love story was told in such a unique way. The use of neurological damage is used to tell this story. Their love went across time and space to bring them together. The reader is not given an explanation for every point in this story, but its understood somethings had to be for love to rein.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Johnny turned out to be a richly developed character. The more I got to know him the more I loved this character. He became so patient and adorable. I also loved Emmaline's mother. We witness her growth through this story as well.


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

    Lily Bask helped you feel the changes that Emmaline goes through during her changes. Excellent! I was on edge.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My favorite moment was when Emmaline takes cookies to Johnny and he is rude and resistant, yet you felt his interest. The way he walks close to her even while ignoring her was teasing and hot.

    "I love Megan Heart Books"

    Overall, I love Megan Hart books, but this one was lacking. I was so excited to see that Audible had a new release and grabbed it as soon as my monthly credits came. I had a really hard time getting into the story and it seemed to drag until they came to the first instance of a fugue (I considered just starting another book). From there, it was the same series of events over and over again. I also found the last 1/3 of the book predictable. One of the great thins about Megan's books is that she weaves her characters throughout all of her books, and this one was missing that little nuance.

    I have also listened to other stories narrated by Lily Bask, and although she is a great narrator, her voice lends itself to portraying an older female (40-50's) and not a female in her early 30's. It made it harder to get into the story since I was imagining these things happening to someone just younger than my mother.

    If you are a Megan Hart fan already, you will appreciate her writing and her truly naughty sex scenes. If this is your first time, I would suggest listening to "Broken" or "Dirty" before getting this one...

    "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.

    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.

    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!

    "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.
