Collide by Gail McHugh
"Doll, you're going to get me out of your system as much as I'm to get you out of mine. It's impossible."
That is for sure! I don't think I will be able to get this book out of my head for a while! I have been waiting for a book that really hit me hard! I sure did "collide" with this one!
Emily..... I wanted to smack her for denying herself what she deserved! She has the typical low self-esteem issue when it comes to men. Instead of going for the one her heart desires, she chooses the one who doesn't know what she is worth. Dillon is a controlling, lying, womanizer. Emily refuses to wake up and see him for who he really is. Gavin is the sweet and loving man who would do anything to have her. She denies him to be with Dillon, the one she feels obligated to. Even though she finds herself weak when it comes to Gavin, knowing he is who her heart desires; she isn't strong enough to walk away from Dillon. It's a constant battle within herself to follow her desires and to fulfill the obligations she thinks she has to fill. My heart was ripped out so many times. My mind couldn't handle anymore, but yet it wanted more and then some more!
"Every part of you was made for me. Your lips were made to kiss mine, your eyes were made to wake up to me looking at you in my bed every morning, and your fucking tongue was made to roll my name off of it. I am more certain of us than I'm certain that I require oxygen to breathe."
