Can not get enough of this series!

Totally shocked me! OMG - no wonder this series is entitled ‘Shock Me’ - that’s just what it keeps doing! I’m determined not to give spoilers away but it is difficult…. This is book 3 in the series and continues on from the earlier books (they’re great reads, too, and I highly recommend reading first as it really is best to read them in order, though I suspect you’d still find this book an intriguing and engaging read if you read it first).  There are more twists, turns, obstacles and misdirections in this fast paced tale than you could possibly imagine! It is a total page turner with cliff hangers galore!!! A great read that will certainly keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat as Donna starts to accept her gift but to keep it hidden whilst also keeping her family and friends safe. She struggles to discover just who is truly friend or foe in the battle against new dangers. A series that is YA Sci Fi and romance mixed with paranormal abilities in a tangled conspiracy that will appeal to adults, too - I need the next book asap! Thanks to Barclay Publicity of letting me have an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

*Disclaimer* I received this book from Barclay Publicity in return for a fair and honest review. Wow! This book will take you on a rollercoaster of a journey. In fact, scrap that, this SERIES will take you for a ride. I'm not going to go into the story - that's what the synopsis is for and as this is book 3 in the series, you've probably already got some idea of what's happening anyway. As for Collide, it is one step forwards, two steps back - that is the unfortunate love story between Donna and Ryan and I really, REALLY want them to get a HEA but I'm not totally sure they will. They both have a lot of secrets and life... plus Ryan's father... keeps getting in the way of them being honest with each other. This story is woven with such skill and lots of other strands are highlighted in this book - for example, Rebecca and Randy to name just two, along with Gemma, David and Lynn plus others. This is part of a series and each book does end with a cliffhanger so fair warning - you will be left gobsmacked and wanting the next book immediately. A brilliant addition to the Young Adult, Science Fiction, Paranormal Romance genres. Highly recommended.

This series has me worked up to a fever pitch just before each new installment releases, then I charge through the latest offering, and afterwards, I'm back to high anticipation for what is going to happen next. Collide was no exception. The last book ended with me sitting there with my mouth open in shock and nearly three hundred new pages later, I was right back where I started. I would definitely describe these as cliffhangers that I love to hate. With that, I should make it clear that this series is not to be read out of order. It's like one story broken into several volumes. I find it tough to summarize without spoilers both for the current book and the series when a story is like this, but I'll give it a try. Donna was in a really tight spot when the last book ended and is still there when this one begins. She has come a long way accepting her gift and having her eyes opened to some of the stuff going on around her, but stuff keeps getting bigger and more out of control. Learning about her gift, the secret behind the power plant and the Applegate's hold on the community, the terrifying government agency out to capture and put down all her kind, grief for losses, frustration and anger over all the stuff out of her power including the knowledge that there are some dangerous gifted baddies running loose, fear over keeping her secrets especially as the hunt is on for the gifted human interfering with Mr. Applegate's plans, keeping her family and friends safe and then there is the guy who claims to be her long lost brother that she wants to hate for surviving and never coming back. What is going on with Ryan the way he is suddenly not ignoring her after the last few years of treating her like dirt? Slowly her list of allies is whittled down so that its just her and Rebecca in the trust column and she is forced to trust her enemies to protect the town from an even worse threat. Can it get any worse? Oh course it can! I made a comment in my first review that I thought nothing is what it seems and there was a whole lot more going on that hadn't been revealed yet or similar words to that effect. I've seen just how right I was, but the thing is, I'm well aware that there is a powerful lot more to come. This book was a transition book through and through. I was aware of this when I started. It did the job of continuing and affirming existing storylines, teasing out a few more new intrigues and leaving stuff at a frustrating and ominous place. This series spreads wide with its many narrations and plot lines going on so each of these middle books are doing the job of plunging the depths and bringing along the development in characters and relationships. Because of all the plot threads, this book didn't advance far, but it didn't lack for significant events either. There are so many lead characters and their first person narrated stories entwine and separate frequently. Donna is the center of it all, but even then, hers was a softer presence in this book bringing others into the light. Ryan, Randy, Lynn, David, and Rebecca along with Saul all have significant page time sharing the narration. It kept me on my toes following the shifts, but I didn't mind. I love each plot thread and enjoy getting them teased out. Each person locks together with the others as pieces in a puzzle. I love the twisting turns and suspense of this one and absolutely salivate for more. As to relationships, it’s like looking through a Kaleidoscope with constantly shifting pictures. The relationship between Donna and Ryan goes forward and then back. They are keeping some heavy secrets from each other and fall on opposite sides of the line right now even if ultimately they are fighting for the same end. It's hard to see where life's circumstances are taking them because I want them to catch a break. As to Randy, my heart just breaks for this guy who sees things so clearly, but is trapped by his dad's ambition. Anyhoo, this is definitely YA at its best blending Sci-Fi with Romantic Suspense. There's some violence, but no sex in this segment. For those who enjoy super-humans or gifted humans as characters and twisty conspiracy plots, this might be a good match for you. My thanks to Barclay Publicity for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
