Title: When We Collide
Author: A.L. Jackson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.
Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.
When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again.
In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.
Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.
But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted on Mondays by Sheila from Book Journey. It features the books you read last week, books currently reading, and books you plan on finishing this week.
What I read this past week:
Dies Irae (Requiem 0.5)
By Christine Fonseca
I started reading Dies Irae in my preparation for the second Requiem book by Christine Fonseca that’s released tomorrow, but I fell behind because I couldn’t read the first one. Not that I won’t read it. School is no help at all right now, so I have to be careful on my neglecting. 😉
Anyway. Dies Irae was really good. It’s short, about eighty-three pages, but it’s a novella after all, right? And I think it just sets the right pace and intrigue to get you on edge to read the next book.
Don’t forget it’s a freebie on Amazon! 😉 Continue reading

The Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, it’s a great way to gain new followers and make new friends.
Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you’ve read and loved?
This question is actually pretty hard. All the books I’ve read and loved have pretty great covers. And I swear I didn’t read them because of the cover.
Not most of them at least. But if I had to choose one I would have to go with the cover of Take This Regret by A.L. Jackson, because let’s face it, it’s not the prettiest cover out there. It really isn’t the worst either, it’s actually pretty decent (I’ve really seen worse lol), but it doesn’t particularly scream “read me! read me!” like some covers do, at least not to me. Yet, the book is really good. I still need to get my review up on the blog, but trust me, it’s a really good book. One of those emotional-rollercoaster kind of books.
Tell me your worst cover! Share your F&F in the comments bellow and I’ll make sure to check it out!
