Blog Tour: MY POV of Collision by Stefne Miller


Paperback, 333 pages
Expected publication: March 13th 2012
Seven minutes inside a hotel room with a complete stranger. A friendly greeting where we pretend to know each other well and are genuinely happy to see each other; then straight to business. None of it meaningful. None of it real. All of it rehearsed, choreographed, and expected.

My life isn’t my own anymore. I pretty much go wherever I’m told and put on the show. It’s my life and whether I chose it or not, it’s the life I’ve got. It’s the world I live in.

And, I’m searching. Always searching… I just don’t know what for.
---
Cab Stone has it all—fame, fortune and the adoration of millions of women across the globe. When the constant attention from fans and expectations from his handlers becomes too much, he escapes the craziness of press junkets and movie sets and escapes to Asheville, North Carolina to hide away for the summer.

He expects peace, quiet, and solitude. What he doesn’t expect is to meet a fiery redhead who changes everything he knows about the world.

The daughter of missionaries, Kei Sallee lives a life of service to others. She has little, expects less, and helps heal the hearts of thousands in Uganda, where she grew up. When she finds herself staying in the same guesthouse as Cab Stone, she vows to ignore his Greek god good looks and spend the summer as she had planned—in peace, quiet, and solitude.

Cab and Kei’s lives couldn’t be more different…or more the same.

Despite, or perhaps because of, their vastly different yet startlingly similar backgrounds, Cab and Kei strike up an unlikely friendship that could possibly blossom into something more. But Kei fears that the truth about her past will prevent pretty-boy Cab, who is used to getting everything he wants, from fully committing to her.

When two completely different worlds experience a Collision, can they exist as one?

My POV
Wow! I'm speechless. So many emotions going through me with this ending I can’t put them all into words.

There were two things that kept me glued to these pages. One was the relationship between Kei and Cabot. It was amazing and so hopeful. It left me wanting more at the end of each chapter. Second, the dialog between these two is so much fun to read I was grinning ear to ear with each word.

Cabot and Kei have such different lives. One a movie star and one a saint...well ok she's a missionary in Africa. You would never think that these two could make relationship work or that it could work out for them but they are willing to try. Surprisingly, Cabot is willing to try more so then Kei because she is wary. She views her self as a person undeserving of anyone’s love and affections because of the things she has been through. She’s terrified of getting romantically involved with anyone but Cabot works his way into her into her comfort zone slowly and desperately. Their journey to happily ever after is beautiful and one I will not forget.

Collision was a VERY emotional read! All the things these two characters experience together and how they change as individuals is wonderful to see. This is a very romantic story with very real and serious subjects. The ending was so unexpected and I‘m sure it will always render me speechless when I talk about this book with others. This book was funny, romantic and devastatingly beautiful! This is one of my best reads of 2012!
