Review: Until We Collide by Charlotte Fallowfield

What do you do when the guy you’re in love with is seeing someone else?

That’s the dilemma facing Paige Taylor. All of her life she’s only ever had eyes for the gorgeous Alec Wright, but despite their undeniable chemistry, their timing has always been off. Fast approaching her thirtieth birthday, Paige despairs of ever finding love and a happy ever after. Her best friend Poppie tells her that she can either watch life pass her by, or grab it with both hands. She convinces Paige to throw herself back into the dating pool, or she could be waiting for Alec forever.

What Paige didn’t expect was the catalogue of dating disasters to follow. A neck brace, jelly fish, stitches, flashing and an encounter with a gorilla were some of the most memorable. Despite some downright hilarious, humiliating and cringe worthy dates, her biological clock is ticking and Paige is determined to keep trying until she finds the one.

Was Alec Wright always her Mr. Right, or is he still out there waiting to be found?

Join Paige in her quest to find the ultimate prize. Love.

ARC received for an honest review.

A fateful Collision of 5 well deserved Stars!

OMG! OMFG! OH.MY.GAAAAAWD! I LOVED this book, like, completely 110% fell in love with it! Ya know when you start a book and you get -THAT- feeling, the one that's like "Oh, yeah! This is going to be really good."!?! Well, I was wrong. It was freaking AMAZING!! SO AMAZING! I devoured it in only a couple hours, amazing. Ok, now that I've let my inner manic book nerd fan-girling self out...I'll try to contain it...albeit briefly ;)

Until We Collide. Wow! Just, wow! A brilliant Rom-Com debut from Charlotte Fallowfield. I swear the woman could write a spellbinding story about a paper bag that would be captivating. Talented it what she is. There wasn't a single thing I didn't love about this book. From the super fun cover to the synopsis, I found myself being sucked in to the story with every flip of the page. Ever changing, never losing pace. Completely captivated.

I laughed a lot...cuz, duh. It's a romantic comedy!
I cried...out of frustration for Paige. AAAAAH!!!!
I swooned...Hello, Alec!!!!!
Had my heart broken a few times...damn you, Alec!
BUT...I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.

Unlike Paige Taylor, there aren't any calamities in regard to this story-line. Paige has that one under control *LOL* The girl is a "walking disaster", especially when it comes to the studly Alec Wright. I prefer to call him Mr. wRIGHT. He's the one who always "gets away" as the timing never seems to be "right" when they collide. Ah, yes! The moment when the title clicks!!! Looooooove!

Paige, she's one of the best heroines I've read in a long time. Her character is brutally realistic and that's what I love so much about her. Is it ok to have a fictional BFF?! Cuz, she'd be mine. So klutzy and self conscious when it comes to her appearance. Tall, blonde and curvy. A total knock out! Hell, she's essentially me minus the knock out part lol.

Until We Collide takes place over 13...well, 14 years.
THIRTEEN YEARS of longing and regret.
THIRTEEN YEARS worth of hilarious dating disasters.
THIRTEEN YEARS of trying to get over her soulmate.
THIRTEEN YEARS of never colliding at the right time.
THIRTEEN YEARS of good luck never being a friend of hers.

Thirteen bloody years!

He loved her since he first laid eyes on her. He let her go so he wouldn't be the reason she stayed and later came to resent him. Boy, he's one stupid mother f*****! But I can't help but love him! He has serious swoon factor. He's willing to play the fate game. If they were truly meant to be, that one day, they'd collide. But until then... THIRTEEN YEARS!!!!!!

Full circle. Ending where it began and OMG it was perfect!!!
Oh, Hello, Hangover! I'm seriously craving more! FALLOWFIELD! I NEED MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!

"We hadn't just collided, we merged. I had no idea anymore where I ended and he began, and I never wanted to find out."
