As with the last book, the advance copy I read of this one had me contemplating the hand of fate and the role serendipity plays in our lives. Do you ever find yourself thinking of someone who entered your life for a brief moment but was gone in the blink of an eye? A chance meeting or a brief encounter that years later, every now and then, has you thinking, as Whittier wrote, “It might have been?” This is the case with Gerry and Tina. After their all too brief but intense interlude, that shared experience becomes the benchmark for all future interactions and relationships with the opposite sex, and none measure up.
Providence affords Gerry and Tina a second chance, but in true Beck fashion, it’s not all hearts and flowers. First there's a secret they're both keeping, and then there’s the little matter of Gerry's dream of a cooking show in Germany that just may come to fruition and Tina's dream of moving to California, both of which make a lasting relationship challenging. Their road to happily ever after is certainly not boring, with plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns. Granted, I wanted to reach through the screen and knock some heads a few times, but they finally got there once they realized that, kind of like a wool sweater dried in the dryer, the old dreams were no longer a comfortable fit.
It was so much fun to catch up with these characters! They’re so carefully crafted, complex and realistic that it was like catching up with old friends, as well as meeting new ones, like Tyler. (Is there a story there? That boy is badly in need of some redemption!) Gerry was an amazing hero and won my heart immediately. Strong but sweet, a hunk with a huge heart, and so in love with Tina! Swoon. Tina had me laughing out loud, annoyed the carp out of me a few times, made me cry (darn it!) and redeemed herself nicely in the end. If you want quality writing and editing with a fresh plot and compelling storyline, you’ll find that in Beck’s work. With larger than life, loveable characters and a story that tugs on the heartstrings, this second book in the Collide series definitely delivers!
Tina had spent many years taking care of her sister and father after her mother died in a car accident. Because of this, she was never able to travel and attend college away from home. Her father is now happily remarried and her sister has found the love of her life. It was finally her turn to move away and follow her dreams. She had just landed her dream job as a project manager doing advanced website and application design. Her first client is a German restaurant and she is confident that with her education and training , she will make a good impression. She walked briskly into the beautiful restaurant and spotted a very handsome guy across the room. He was wearing tight black jeans and a form fitting t-shirt that showed off his perfect body. Something about him was familiar and she felt a chill run down her spine. Tina certainly hoped that she could separate business from her personal interest in the sexy restaurant owner.
Gerry loved running his own restaurant and was very proud of the beautiful and peaceful beer garden that he had created for his guests. He is looking forward to meeting his web designer because he definitely needed a way to bring in more business. He was a successful chef in Germany , but an unfortunate incident caused him to seek solace in the US where he could start over. The minute Tina took off her sunglasses he knew his life would change forever. She was the girl from his past that he never forgot. He remembers their kiss as if it was yesterday. Tina was brought to him for a reason and this time, he would never let her go.
How will Tina react when she finds out that Gerry is the guy she kissed many years ago? Will she forgive him for hiding his identity from her?
Can Gerry convince Tina that they are meant to be together? Or will she decide to forget about him and follow her dreams instead?
"Dreams Collide" is the second book in The Collide Series by Kristina Beck and I absolutely loved it. Tina and Gerry never forgot their first kiss and fortunately for them, fate stepped in and brought them back together. Kristina realistically captures the feelings of her characters, which makes the reader become attached to them immediately. "Dreams Collide" is about love, trust and second chances. Kristina is a talented and refreshing new author and I know everyone will love this book as much as I did.
