my world and you re going to be my queenCollision was the first Evie Harper book I ve read and I was not disappointed at all It reminded me of The Fast and the Furious mixed with The Outsiders Growing up in Portland, you had to be tough and gain respect, if not you d be walked on and get killed.If I tried to describe to you how this book made me feel, I d be up all night Ugh for this book this story gave me so many feels I can t with this book It was pure mind f ckery at its best Slater In the prologue we re introduced to him as a child and the harsh and brutal conditions he lived through

impairment but it doesn t stop her from being fierce and incredibly strong She s one of those characters that grows throughout the book At first you notice her shy and vulnerable side soon you witness her feisty and I don t take sh t from no one side When it came to Slater she never fought against what she felt for him and she wasn t afraid t This series has lots of potential Its a gangbanger romance At least I think that s a trope now Obviously, being gang members, the men are all tattooed bad boys There was lots of drama, a good amount of action, and a really good plot twist All good things for fans of these types of books.That being said, while being a good enough read, the story did not resonate with me It was lacking a level of maturity that I would expect from 30 y o characters I thought, based on the super emotional and engaging prologue, that this book would get under my skin But we go right from the prologue to raunchy sex in the bathroom of the bar, where the girl is holding on to the nasty toilet seat At one point she even rests her head on her arms on the toilet seat This grossed me out so much that the story started to unravel I mean, ew, public toilet seat in a bar And you know public toilets dont have lids so she was up close and personal with some nasty bodily fluids and lots of germs I wanted Review To come ARC provided by author in exchange of
