I'm a huge fan of sci-fi and romance, like Hunger Games and my favorite, Divergent. This book, Collision, received a 5 star rating, and for the life of me can't understand why. Although I like the idea of the story, I suffered through a ridiculous amount of grammatial errors, misused words and became rather fruststrated that I was reading a rough draft and not the edited version of the book. As a newcomer to the Nook, I can only hope this is not the norm.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Collision by J.M.J. Williamson is the story of Ben, a researcher of particle physics. Out for a jog one night, it initially appears he's in the wrong place at the wrong time as he catches a glimpse of a UFO before it vanishes. The military descends upon him and whisks him away for questioning, leaving him unaware that for Elle, the pilot of the UFO, he was in exactly the right place, at the right time. CAI, her Computer Artificial Intelligence, identified him as one who possibly had enough knowledge to help her solve the mystery of Tachyons, a solution she desperately needs before she can time travel to the day her parents are killed in a car accident. With limited time, they must evade Russian agents, the US Military, and MI6, all the while trying to perfect the equations of Tachyon.
I liked this story, and though it is a sci-fi romance, J.M.J. Williamson didn't overwhelm the plot with too much technical information or equations. The budding romance between Ben and Elle wasn't overshadowed by the layered plot of time travel. It unfolds nicely throughout the story, and was handled well without graphic descriptions. There is a very nice balance here with all aspects, and you get a really good sense of all the characters involved. It's the good character building and an entirely feasible, well laid out plot that moves the story along at a good pace despite the changes of POV that occur often. Collision will be enjoyed by sci-fi and romance readers alike, as it has inter-woven elements that are appealing to both genres without being overpowering in either aspect.
