    2. 5+ stars!!!! Books like this remind me why I absolutely ADORE reading. Books like this that grab me, hold me captive, envelop me in the story and leave a mark on my heart. Once again, the phenomenally talented AL Jackson brings us a gorgeously written, emotionally charged love story that that was heart wrenching, beautiful and uplifting.This book highlights the gut-wrenching horrors of abuse, the beauty of a second chance, of finding the strength to stand up for yourself and for those you love, [...]

    3. 5 HEART WRENCHING STARSDAMN.WHAT A BOOK!!! It was utterly fantastic. I have read all of AL Jackson's books and every single one of them have moved me to a place that no other author has been able to do. Her books are beyond words, the emotion that is written into every line and every word is perfection. The palpable feelings that exude from her characters are indescribable. Her books have a pulse that beat through my body and make my heart soar. The flow of her stories, the pace, everything abou [...]

    4. Last night I finally handed When We Collide over for formatting. No more editing and no more tweaks. It was hard to let it go, but it was time. I hope William and Maggie's story touches you the way it did me, and may all women, men, and children know it shouldn't hurt to be touched.

    5. F**k, this was a tough one to finish. I felt my emotions all over the place. A tale of lost love, heartbreak, domestic violence, young love, older love, abuse - it had it all. Really as I was getting towards the end I really was not sure how it was going to end. It's one of those books that has left me with a headache - I find if I read a very emotionally charged book I end up with a headache at the end of it. I think I need something light to read now.

    6. I couldn't finish this book, I really tried to. I didnt even read it intentionally. I downloaded the epub thinking it's When We Collided but after a chapter or 2, I noticed that this is no YA. Anyway, so I read few more then put it on hold in November. I wasn't impressed. I decided to continue it now and downloaded the audio. It's BAD. I dont recommend the audiobook at all. Maggie is really weak and yes, she's abused but I just couldn't stand her. The drama and angst were too much. She doesnt do [...]

    7. 4.5 I'll never regret you STARSThroughout this read, my heart was in a vice, tears pooling in my eyes, head throbbing with the need to do something, to stop the hurt, the pain, the abuse. At times, I wanted to be destructive and lash out at the injustice of it all. The dedication says it all “Because it should not hurt to be touched.”This book is about abuse, domestic violence, anger, betrayal and most importantly about how someone can live in terror their entire life, truly believe they are [...]

    8. “William. My secret, my heart. The beautiful man I’d lain with for hours under the stars, our lives poured out in a torrent of stories and words. The way he held me while I shared the ones that hurt me the most. How he touched me, the way he made me feel incredibly safe. How that hold had escalated from safety to ecstasy as the soft pads of his fingers would dance across my lips when he locked himself to me, the perfect weight of his body, the expression on his face when he came. The heartbr [...]

    9. Currently on sale for $0.99 until June 28th, 2015. LinkI don't know how should I rate this one. One on hand, the writing is awesome and emotional engagement score is really high. On the other hand, this book just make me so sad and angry. Honestly, I felt negatively for almost 90% of the book. Is this something I want to read for leisure? I prefer more happiness in my reading material.A big portion of this book was told from the hero, William's POV. He is this sad guy who fell in love with the w [...]

    10. 3.5 starsCollision: when two or more objects collide resulting in an abrupt change of energy. Who can survive the collision course of three people headed in the same direction?When we’re young, its rare relationships work out. But as we grow, we learn through our trials and tribulations that form and shape us into the adults who we are today. Maggie is a weak young woman on both the inside and outside when we meet her.

    11. LOVED IT!! A.L. has done it again! When We Collide was an incredible ride I stayed up all night to finish, and still wish I wasn't done with yet! Yeahat good.Normally I'm not a huge fan of going back and forth present day/in the past; but I actually find myself craving it in A.L. Jackson's books! I feel like she hits you with flashbacks at the perfect time, and just the perfect amount to keep you craving them, as well as the presentWilliam and Maggie have a love, and a connection that can surpas [...]

    12. That book sucked the life out of me.It is depressing.It has a gloomy tone. Of course, it would be sad because it involves lots of cases of abuse but the way it is written makes it not only sad but also boring and I thought of dropping it many times. ***********************************************After having finished reading it, I feel I need therapy or something that would serve as therapy, a big chocolate cake or wine or pizza, or something like that :) Maybe a dirty fun book, I don't know**** [...]

    13. So excited for this book!!! I know it's going to be 5 star worthy!!!! Amy is absolutely amazing in her writing! Congrats on another EPIC novel Amy--You rock!!!!!

    14. 5 EMOTIONAL, HEART-WRENCHING STARSA.L. Jackson does it again, with another emotionally intense book that sucked me in, ripped my heart out, but left me weeping happy tears. I fell in love with William and Maggie. When we meet them at the beginning of the book, they are both living lives that they hate and are both utterly broken and miserable. When William returns to his home town and his family after a six year self-imposed exile, he runs into Maggie, the girl that changed his whole life over t [...]

    15. I was immensely disappointed with this book. I first got a sample through which got me hooked, however, the decisions the two main characters, William and Maggie, make irked me to no end, especially Maggie's. Now, Maggie was an abused child and found herself in an abusive relationship which I know is a pattern well documented in real life. Maggie was aware of this pattern and was given multiple opportunities to get out through others intervention or through her own will. Making the choice to ge [...]

    16. Oh my God, this book!!!!!I went into this blind, bought this book on a hunch. I'd really liked the cover. I decided to go ahead and read it because it had really great reviews.Let me first acknowledge the writing in this book. It was exceptional, fluid, a melody of words.I was so invested right from the start. Before the first chapter ended I had to know more about Will and Maggie's story. It sucked me right in. From the start there's obvious tension between the two main characters who's POV the [...]

    17. A male hero who saves a scarred and broken heroine.This book should have been up my alley. I should have loved this Except I didn't.The reviews made me put this in my top tbr shelf. Gushing declarations with terms like breathless, amazing, gut-wrenching won me over. The cover was also beautiful. But to say this was a disappointment was an understatement.Whilst reading I found myself checking the time, wondering when i was going to finish. This was so close to a DNF for me but I hate not finishin [...]

    18. 5 beautiful, heartbreaking stars!Review to come soon, but for now meet:Maggie"I’d never known what home meant.To me, it’d been a prison, a place I longed to escape. A place where horrors were harbored, concealed behind closed windows and lies.”“Had I been marked for this life before I was born? Fated before time to suffer at the hands of the ones who were supposed to care for me? Or was it the choices I had made that led me here? Did one fatal mistake send me on a collision course, or wa [...]

    19. **WOW**! This is the first book that I read of Ms. Jackson! Can I say just PHENOMENAL, INCREDIBLE, AMAZING Etc. This story was so magical. The meaning of Love was so perfectly displayed amongst the pages. Such a tender subject to approach and talk about. Maggie was the definition of a Survivor, Fighter, and Warrior. William, plain and simple, a Man that everyone should come across in life.Ms. Jackson's words were so carefully constructed and so descriptive. I say this often, but I truly mean it [...]

    20. A.L. Jackson is one of my favorite authors. She's auto buy and auto read. This book I first bought as an audible book and listened as I was taking a vacation. I had a really difficult time enjoying that version. I didn't connect with the characters and stopped part way through because the narrator wasn't working for me. When I stopped listening and started reading, I began to fall into the story a bit more. The angst and drama kept me interested even if at times it seemed a bit much. By the end [...]

    21. This review will also be posted at mysecretromancebookreviewsWilliam left his family and his home town 6 years ago and never looked back at the reminder of what he lost and the pain he felt. He was broken inside and angry at the world and especially at Maggie. He lived in an unhappy life and had a job he hated… he was living one miserable day at a time. The dreams that wake him every night are haunting him and do not make any sense, or are they not dreams but something else? William finally ca [...]

    22. A.L. Jackson has done it again. When We Collide is PHENOMINAL!!!!! I don't know how she does it but every book I have read by her has pulled at every hearts string I have. This one was even harder for me because of the sensitivity of the subject matter. I have to say she made me feel everything Maggie and William felt throughout the entire book. I felt like I was a part of the story. I have to say Troy was a real douchebag. I don't feel bad for him at all for what happens to him in the book. I t [...]

    23. I wish I could of written this when I finished the book in the wee morning hours, when my heart was racing & I was feeling all kinds of emotions. I have calmed down since then. Let me start by saying I’m pretty sure I am turning a new leaf by going into books blind, I feel like the less I know the better the experience. If I already know if there is a HEA then how can I appreciate all the feelings that come with it? When We Collide was everything I was looking for & going in blind only [...]

    24. Oh my god this book sounds AMAZING! I can't freaking wait to get my ands on it! Finished it and immensely enjoyed it as I have enjoyed all of A.L. Jackson's books. This one was very intense. The story so powerful. The characters captivating. Gripping from beginning to end.

    25. Book Review: When We Collide – A.L. JacksonPowerful storytelling at its finest! An account of a six-year struggle of unrequited love, loss, abuse and family devastation.“Underneath the scars that lined my body and lined my soul, William saw me. And he loved me as much as I loved him.””I had spent my life believing I was happy. Satisfied. Until the day Maggie Krieger sent my world careening out of control. I knew then that having her was the only thing that could ever right it.”A.L Jack [...]

    26. I was so into this book in the beginning , then somewhere in the middle I started to get bored with it but I stuck with it and BOY am I glad I did WHAT AN AMAZINGLY AWESOME READ !!!!“I don’t know how to stop loving you.”William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’ [...]

    27. I received a copy of this book as an ARC from the author.I have to say, she has once again hit it out of the ballpark for me. This was a raw and emotional read and I was honored to be asked to read and advanced copy.I previously anticipated new releases by well-known authors and have found that authors such as A.L. Jackson and other debut authors are hitting the mark for me and I find myself eagerly anticipating their new releases. If you haven't read her other two books, you don't know what you [...]

    28. It took me a little while to really get hooked into this book. At first I thought it was too much negative emotion without any good, but as the story continued and we got to see glimpses of the past to really get pulled in by Maggie and William's relationship, I couldn't stop reading. This book was crazy intense. My fingers hurt to even type this review because I broke down and chewed all my fingernails off too far. :) At one point I was so nervous I even started to sweat and I hate to sweat, bu [...]

    29. ** Spellbinding ** is the one word that sums up this story. This book is like a vise on your heart. You just absolutely bleed for these characters. The writing is superb and I felt every throb of pain the characters go through emotionally and physically. A.L. is the QUEEN of angst*tissue alert* ;'("I could only see the woman who had haunted my years and now possessed my future." It's a gripping story that stays with you. Simply wonderful!In the beginning I was annoyed with both William & Mag [...]

    30. Great book. If I could give it 4.5 stars, I would. The only negative part for me was the literally constant back and forth from his POV, to her POV, to present day, to 6 years ago. I don't typically have issues with stories going back and forth in time but when it's done in both POVs, it's like reading four books at once. And it happened constantly, kind of confusing me at times.The author did an extraordinary job portraying the thoughts and scarred emotions of an abused child and woman. The cyc [...]

    31. If you haven never read a book written by A.L. Jackson, I would highly recommend that you do. She is one of my "go to" authors. I have yet to read anything she has written that wasn't absolutely amazing. She writes real characters with real problems. Their lives aren't neat and pretty, they make horrible mistakes and they learn to live with it. This book is no exception.Maggie is a young woman who has endured her entire life. She endured her father, she endured her mother, she endured school and [...]
