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.

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.

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 :)

After reading a lof reviews I decided to read Collision Course. It started it off promising but after 100 pages or so I lost interest. I don't DNF books very often but decided to stop reading this one. I have a few problems with the story and here's what they are:

1) Up until the part I stopped at it seemed the story was just dragging along. I feel a lot of what was said could have been omitted.

2) Sawyer's character is portrayed as poor. She doesn't have many clothes. She uses a cheap backpack. She never has anything to eat at lunchtime etc. On the other hand she has her own car which she drives to and from school daily. I just couldn't work those two things out in my head. It seems clothing and lunches would have been more important.

3) It is portrayed that Lucas was not under the influence the night of the wreck. Most of the trouble he is facing at school could have been avoided if he'd only just showed the police report / drug screening. I just didn't get why he wouldn't want to prove his innocence.

4) Lucas dreams quite often about his friends that were lost in the car crash. What takes place during his dreams was a bit unrealistic to me. I'm all about stories that are realistic. I feel it's a must with stories like this.

I was sort of torn between finishing this book or letting it go. It would have been nice to find out what secrets Sawyer was hiding but I just couldn't overlook the problems I had with this story.
