What a magnificently breathtaking and exquisitely brilliant creation that far exceeds words and instead finds itself firmly rooted to the ethereal plane of emotions so dark and deep that very few dare to explore. The themes touched on throughout these pages will shred and destroy your soul, and only your heart will be able to save you. The darkness that boldly seeps around you can only be counter-balanced by the light that dares to desperately make its intentions known. There is no middle ground, so unlike this grey world we find ourselves living in, a side must be chosen. Just be careful not to lose yourself after the choice has been made.

Through a series of horribly unthinkable events, Sara finds herself thrown into a world that is as deadly as it is beautiful. She has no clue as to her fate, but she continues to stand firm against the silent yet consistent undercurrent that is always pulling at her. When she is handed a golden opportunity to change her circumstances, she grabs on with white knuckles and swallows her fear in order to do what others have not been able to. The decision to live her life on her own terms will either become a deceptive promise or an iron-willed truth. Thane has a fiercely single-minded focus on his job. Nothing will stop him from attaining his goal, and no one will stand in his way. He is determined to right a very egregious wrong no matter what it takes, and he will do it by whatever means possible. The one thing that neither counted on was coming in contact in a very dangerous yet compelling way. The secrets and mysteries that lie hidden within the other are the keys to unlocking very real iron chains. Will they discover the truth in time while keeping out of harm’s way, or will past horrors finally catch up and distort the truth even more?

Beautiful Collision is the first book in the new adult suspense thriller series, Desperation. It starts off right in the middle of the action too. The main character is on the run. We don’t know from who yet and we don’t know any of the details as to why, but you are thrown right in the middle of the action. It certainly was an effective way to draw the reader in. Beautiful Collision is told in dual narrative between Gray and Thane, the guy sent to keep an eye on her. I loved the way T.G. Ayer told the story. It flips back and forth between Gray and Thane, with more chapters from Gray’s perspective and also scattered throughout where flashback that gave us details slowly on the who and why Gray was running from.

I really liked both Gray and Thane. Gray is a tough girl, that is very apparent right from the start of the story. And she certainly has not had an easy life, but she never whines and plays the poor me card. She doesn’t even make excuses, she just keeps moving forward. It is a very admirable quality for someone her age to have. And I also loved that even though she was escaping, she still wanted to pursue an education. It was risky sure, but it was important to her. I think the more I got to know her the more I liked her and admired her. Thane too. The more he really watched Gray (or Sara) the more he fell for her. And I don’t blame him. She is a great girl.

The flashbacks in the story played a huge role in describing the kind of man that Gray was running from. At first, I didn’t like the flashbacks. I caught myself skimming them because they are very violent. But as the story went on and I became more and more invested in the characters and plot, I liked the flashbacks more.

Right off the author dives into intrigue and suspense. Gray is a girl who is looking for something she needs and at the same time she has to keep going. Serious business the the lengths she has to go. Shortly the author will have you by your shirt collar immersed in this book. Full detail is given on all the circumstances and it is not pretty. You will be given insights from memories at just the right time. Then she meets Thane "accidentally" but his story will come out also. She will have had the gumption and bravery to do more than most people ever would. In fact these are two very strong characters that are so important to each other. Suspensefully layer by layer things will come to light. He will also be the one who save her from a event that will lead to their turning point with each other. It will grow gracefully but not take away from the story. Strong beginning to a intense story that comes in parts. The not so nice part of life is brought to the forefront in this story with characters that hope they can come out on top. She will also leave you with your mouth open on this one so you better hope there aren't any flies around.

I had never read Toni Vallan so wasn't sure what to expect but LOVED this book! Her writing style is simply awesome!

Gray is on the run from her past. She trusts no one. When she finally finds a place to stay for a while, Thane enters. Thane has big secrets of his own. They cannot deny their attraction when circumstances force them together 24/7. Will their pasts catch up to them?

I wasn't expecting the roller coaster ride of suspense. The story had me hooked from the first page and I read it in one sitting. It was action packed and has me on the edge if my seat the whole time. Plus, couldn't get enough of the chemistry between Gray and Thane. The cliffhanger blew my mind because I never saw it coming. NEED NEED NEED book 2 yesterday! I highly recommend this intense story!
