Editorial Reviews

Review

"A story of unbelievable depth and a true study of the human spirit, Collision Course will touch your heart, your soul, and drag you through more emotions than you thought possible. This is S.C. Stephens at her best. A must read!" -Nicky Charles, author of The Mating.

"Collision Course is a profoundly moving story. Ms. Stephens has penned another story told with raw, messy honesty, and I admire the hell out of her for it. She also writes with hope, and that isn't easy to do, with a story like this one." -Tammara Webber, author of Easy

"Collision Course is not a chick book. It is a human being book. I loved this story. Plain and simple." -Lisa's Reads

"A beautiful and tragic story about love, loss and hope. Wonderfully written characters whose journey will remain in your heart forever." -Totally Booked Blog

"Heartbreaking. Devastating. Hopeful. Collision Course is tragically beautiful story about recovering from loss and finding love when you least expect it, but exactly when you need it. SC Stephens never ceases to amaze me with her skill for creating incredibly touching tales." -Autumn Review

About the Author

S.C. Stephens is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.

Her debut novel, Thoughtless, an angst-filled love triangle charged with insurmountable passion and the unforgettable Kellan Kyle, took the literary world by storm. Amazed and surprised by the response to the release of Thoughtless in 2009, more stories were quick to follow. Stephens has been writing nonstop ever since.

In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys spending lazy afternoons in the sun reading fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer's block reducing music, heading out to the movies, and spending quality time with her friends and family. She currently resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her two equally beautiful children.

S. C. Stephans has got me again. I loved Thoughtless and Effertless so I had to give Collision Course a try. This was different but by no means disappointing. Collision Course was sad and tearful right from the start. Just like in her other books you feel the emotions as the characters. Lucas is the only surviver of a car crash that took the lives of his two best friends and his first love. Not only does he blame himself, so does the entire small town that they all lived in believing he was drunk when the car crashed. The only person beside his mom and the sheriff (that know he was not drunk and driving) that gives him the time of day is a new girl to the school named Sawyer. They are two badly damaged souls who find each other and connect instantly.

The characters are so realistic and lovable. There is not too much drama or situations that just drag on like in the average teenage romance. I guess because it isn't a teenage romance. Don't get me wrong it does have the confusing romantic edge to it but really This book is about losing some one tragically and needing love and understanding about how someone deals with it. Most people have dealt with tragedy on some scale which is why this book was so relatable. I would however not recommend this to younger readers. Without giving anything away there is some mature situations, teen sexual relationships and conversations.

Please, please give it a chance. You won't be disappointed.

Another great book by S.C. Stephens. Although this book has a different feel than Thoughtless and Effortless, it's just as emotional and touching as they were. I don't want to give anything away, the synopsis says all you need to know, but I will say that it's a emotional ride with a wonderful romance in there.

The only thing that has confused me are the tags below the reviews. I have no idea why anyone would label this book (erotic) or (bdsm). There is nothing erotic about this book nor is there any bdsm in here. There are times where I would say it's sensual, but very light. I'm guessing teens are reading this and assume if there is sex, it must be erotic. :P

Anyway, loved it and can't wait to see what comes next from S.C. Stephens. One of my new favorite authors! Well done :)

I love the story and the characters. I think it really touches on what it's like to be a sole survivor and dealing with death when you are responsible. You get to get in the mind of someone that experiences it. I really like that about the book. However, what bothers me is that the story kind of drags a little. Also, there are a lot of scenes where he dreams about his friends (the deceased) and it's just too much. The dreams with his friends would be helpful if they whole purpose of them visiting him while he sleep is to help him move on with life, which they eventually do but a lot of the dreams are pointless. Like how many times is he going to dream about his girlfriend Lillian. It sort of get to the point that as much as you think it's cute he adores his girlfriend, you really just get tired of it, Really tired of it. It makes you say "oh boy, not another dream". The other issue I have is that it's just way too wordy. There should be more dialogue between the characters. The author describes every moment of his life which is also a bit annoying. How many times do he need to describe Lilian's eyes, face, and skin or Sawyers grey eyes and face. For example, if Lucas steps into a room, the author spends 2 paragraphs expressing how Lucas feel when he steps into the room. It's little things like this that get sort of annoying as you read. The book is 327 pages but to but to be honest with you, the story could've been told in probably 250 pages once you take out some of the irrelevant dreams and the wordiness.

Again, I love the story and I do like the characters. I'm just not in love with the book. A good book is a book I can't stop thinking about once I put it down. This book makes me just want to hurry up and finish it so I can start my next book. I shouldn't feel this way.

S.C. Stephens has done it again! There was never a doubt in my mind that Collision Course would be just as outstanding as her other books. This is an amazing, heart-wrenching story! I loved it! The characters are easy to love and get attached to. The story was so real because I grew up in a small town and this same situation actually happened. It is a must read!

Collision Course is exactly the reason I LOVE books. It has everything from romance, death, grief, anger, friendship, even a little forbidden romance.

I don't know how Ms. Stephens does it; every book I have read of hers is just amazing. The details she gives her characters makes you feel like you really know them and fall in love with them. Collision Course was no exception. That is why she is one of my favorite authors, what she writes in her books makes them true pieces of art.

I instantly loved the characters Lucas and Sawyer; in fact I want a best friend like Sawyer too! We need more Sawyers in the world, what a beautiful character she is. Lucas needed her in his life so badly and she was there for him, no matter how hard it must have been for her to love someone who was still in love with his dead ex-girlfriend. Sometimes Luc made me upset, he was physically using Sawyer while he was dreaming of Lil. Not that I could blame him at all, he was very confused having feelings for someone else just months after losing his first love. I just wanted him to admit he loved Sawyer and not just in a friend way.

I do agree with some other reviewers some of the story is a bit slow and repetitive but I really enjoyed it. I wanted to know about every dream Lucas was having of his dead friends and why he couldn't move on, why he wanted to "live" in his dream world. I cried a lot for Luc and what he was going through, especially at the end I was reading with a tissue box on my lap at 3 am. I wanted him to move on so badly and be healthy for himself and for Sawyer.

The ending was beautiful and perfect. Their first time "together" was beautiful. I felt it with them and only wish everyone could have a first time "together" like they did.
