Dreams Collide by Kristina Beck

This is the second book in the Collide series, and it's every bit as good as the first! Grab it now, as well as the first book, so you'l be ready for the third book in the series, coming out later this year.

This series is really terrific! Here are my reviews on this book and the first, Lives Collide. 

Dreams Collide

We first met Tina in her sister Lisa's story, Lives Collide. After her mother dies in an automobile accident, Tina becomes “mom” to her younger sister and the glue that holds her family together. Gone is the carefree girl with the adventurous spirit who will try anything, and in her place is the girl who smiles to hide the pain and never lets anyone see her cry. She meets Gerry when her company is hired to design his restaurant's website, and there's immediate mutual attraction. Tina finds herself letting go, being a silly and laughing, and opening up to him in ways she never has before, not even with her family.

As with the last book, the advance copy I read of this one had me contemplating the hand of fate and the role serendipity plays in our lives. Do you ever find yourself thinking of someone who entered your life for a brief moment but was gone in the blink of an eye? A chance meeting or a brief encounter that years later, every now and then, has you thinking, as Whittier wrote, “It might have been?” This is the case with Gerry and Tina. After their all too brief but intense interlude, that shared experience becomes the benchmark for all future interactions and relationships with the opposite sex, and none measure up.

Providence affords Gerry and Tina a second chance, but in true Beck fashion, it’s not all hearts and flowers. First there's a secret they're both keeping, and then there’s the little matter of Gerry's dream of a cooking show in Germany that just may come to fruition and Tina's dream of moving to California, both of which make a lasting relationship challenging. Their road to happily ever after is certainly not boring, with plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns. Granted, I wanted to reach through the screen and knock some heads a few times, but they finally got there once they realized that, kind of like a wool sweater dried in the dryer, the old dreams were no longer a comfortable fit.

It was so much fun to catch up with these characters! They’re so carefully crafted, complex and realistic that it was like catching up with old friends, as well as meeting new ones, like Tyler. (Is there a story there? That boy is badly in need of some redemption!) Gerry was an amazing hero and won my heart immediately. Strong but sweet, a hunk with a huge heart, and so in love with Tina! Swoon. Tina had me laughing out loud, annoyed the carp out of me a few times, made me cry (darn it!) and redeemed herself nicely in the end. If you want quality writing and editing with a fresh plot and compelling storyline, you’ll find that in Beck’s work. With larger than life, loveable characters and a story that tugs on the heartstrings, this second book in the Collide series definitely delivers!
