Collide by A. Akinosho is a gripping contemporary romance story. Tate was celebrating his thirty-sixth birthday in a restaurant with his best friend when someone bumped into a woman who fortunately landed in his arms. Tate wants to believe she is not one of those crazy women trying to get his attention to become the next Mrs. DeMoore. He has sworn off marriage, and he's allergic to intimacy. But the beautiful black lady impressed him. Shortly after, he sees a guy kneeling before her, putting a ring on her finger. His friend thinks she's a case closed now, but Tate doesn't want to let her go, even though he doesn't know her name yet. He can't accept that a woman made him feel something and got engaged the same night, so he decides to steal her from her fiancé.
This book gets more riveting and twisty with every page. Collide proves that love between a white man and a black woman is possible and friendship between a man and woman is as well. A. Akinosho has given us an engaging story full of secrets, emotion, sexual tension, twists, and turns. I loved the friendship between Tate and Dane. Two guys rarely have the strength to be vulnerable enough with each other to share their feelings for a woman. I also loved how it switched between narrators at key moments. The chemistry between Tate and Lande is instant and electric. Collide will definitely please fans of steamy interracial and contemporary romances.
