Title: Love Collides (Fate’s Love #3)
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary
Release: June 30th
Staci Jameson is independent to a fault. But after growing up in the shadow of an overprotective family, and being let down by the only person that promised to always be there for her, Staci locked away her heart and vowed only to rely on herself.
Until a tall dark and sexy-as-sin player reawakens something inside of her.
Kade Ford knows what some people will do in the name of love, and it isn’t all hearts and flowers. It’s the reason he isn’t looking to settle down. Ever. Instead, he plays the field and never gets too close.
Until a tiny blonde firecracker barrels her way into his life and leaves him wanting more.
What starts as a one-night stand turned friends-with-benefits arrangement begins to blur into something neither of them saw coming?or wanted. And when secrets from their pasts catch up with them, the very thing that they are both running from might just be the thing that they need the most. Will Staci and Kade turn to each other or will they let their pasts define their future?
Sometimes two people don’t just come together…they collide.
“Love wasn’t something you chose, it was something that happened whether you wanted it or not.”
Love Collides was another great read by L.A. Cotton. Kade and Staci have made a choice not to fall in love, so they think they can go through life not feeling anything for another person. However, they soon realize fate has another thing in store for them…love, but they will fight it every step of the way. And, we as readers, get to sit back and watch it. Who will win, Kade and Staci, or fate?
I was drawn into the book from the very first page. You will see why when you start this awesome book. Kade and Staci do everything backwards. Staci would end up in Kade’s bed after vowing to herself that it would never happen again and after always running out on him the morning after. However, something kept drawing her back to him. Kade tries to convince himself it’s just sex…really, really good sex, but just sex and nothing else. And like Staci, he keeps going back. But, he soon realizes he can’t get her out of his thoughts, so he decides to pursue her, maybe as friends with benefits, yeah that will work, right? It will get her out of his system, or so he thinks. As they embark on this “friends” venture, they soon realize their feelings go a lot deeper than they thought which scares them, plus each one is carrying some painful baggage from their pasts. Will they give into their instinct to run, or will they finally let go of their past and give happiness a shot?
This was a sweet, sexy, and emotional read. I loved both Kade and Staci, and I loved their sexy, sarcastic banter with one another. Like I mentioned earlier, they do everything backwards, which I have to say I liked. That’s what made this book different. Most of the time in romance novels, the characters have this amazing sexual tension, and it all works up until it peaks in the bedroom…and I love that. But L.A. Cotton did an amazing job making this book different. Yes, Kade and Staci have AMAZING sexual chemistry and the sex is HOT, but I loved watching them become friends and eventually more. There were times I got frustrated with both characters. They would make these amazing steps forward in building trust, and then, they would each take two steps back. However, I could really understand why when their pasts were finally revealed. I truly loved the journey of their love story. I haven’t gone into great detail about the book; I don’t want to ruin it because there really are some great things you learn about each character along the way that really make you love them even more.
I have only discovered L.A. Cotton six months ago, and since then, I have read and enjoyed every single book she has written. She has this series, and she has written another series Chastity Falls. Chastity Falls is a darker series which is part thriller, part mystery, and one heck of a love story. She is a writer to watch because she has written two different types of romance, but each is fantastic. So, if you haven’t discovered L.A. Cotton, get to downloading or buying her books today. You will not be disappointed!
Swoon worthy and heart stopping New Adult Romance. L.A is author of the Fate’s Love Series and Chastity Falls Series. Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time mum to two little people with writing. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L. A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
