When We Collide By AL Jackson: Review


From the bestselling author of Pulled and Take This Regret comes a gripping new tale of loss and love.

William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again. 

In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have. 

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.
But he never imagined what that fight might cost him. 

A.L. Jackson gives you an intimate look into the lives of a family bound by an unseen connection in this new contemporary romance.

Review:  4.5 of 5 stars

I am completely blown away by AL Jackson everytime I open one of her books. When We Collide is no exception. It's a great story, from beginning to end. I love that the author can take dark, horrible topics and still turn them into a heartbreakingly ,beautiful journey.  

William and Maggie are both amazing characters that are almost polar opposites. But they have always had an undeniable pull to the other one. I can't wait for their story to unfold for you!

This story is told in both main characters POV and also flashes from the past to the present. It slowly reveals the whole story and keeps you captivated the entire time.  Ms. Jackson always keeps me wanting more! This story is really intense and difficult to read at times, but necessary to keep it realistic.  

When We Collide explores the beauty of love and how when we don't follow our hearts and what our heart wants out lives can take on bitterness. The heart wants what the heart wants and when it doesn't get it it's not whole, when something's missing we cannot fully live to our potential. 

AL Jackson paints the perfect picture of how our fears often drive us down the wrong road and how drastic our lives can change when we don't follow our hearts.
I highly recommend this novel. It's a heartbreakingly beautiful story that while full of pain also captures the power of love in the most life changing of ways! Go one click it today!
