so I was excited when COLLIDE arrived in the mail I like Maria Ciletti s easy, readable style of prose, and thought she did a great job making the dialogue flow realistically I cared about Annie, Renee and Dana, though I would have liked seeingdepth to their personalities I was surprised at some obsolete verbiage like sexual preference At times the pacing was slow, bogged down by extra scenes like an unnecessary car ride.Bottom line, COLLIDE was interesting enough, but not a book I ll read again I might check out other books by Ciletti at some point, if I can find them at bargain prices
