REVIEW: Collide by Shelly Crane


Sherry is eighteen and leads a boring life working for a tabloid newspaper and supporting her mooch of a brother, Danny. She’s always believed that there’s something out there – something…different. When the moon goes missing and people start disappearing only to reappear changed later, she’s proven right. That’s driven home when her abusive ex-boyfriend shows up on her doorstep claiming to literally be a different man, Merrick. He says he’s there to protect her and Danny and plans to take them underground. There’s so much weirdness in the world, it would be nice to have someone to lean on, to count on, but can she really trust him?

Title:  Collide
Series:  Collide
Book #: 1
Author:  Shelly Crane
Approximate Book Length:  390 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  16+
Sexual Content:  Mild


This was an exciting story, with mystery, loyalty, danger, and of course the kind of love that Shelly Crane is so good at conveying. Merrick is so sweet and protective, you melt whenever he’s on screen so to speak. Sherry is young, but so maternal over her brother and mature, having been through her fair share in her life, making her incredibly endearing.

The mini colony that evolves brings a great element of suspense as you never really know about some people, and you know that nothing lasts forever. The bonds and introductions made will carry on throughout the story, and I have no doubt they’ll come into play across the series too. There’s a lot of building, for the world and the relationships, which sometimes makes it feel a little slow or drawn out, but it gives the story plausibility and leaves you antsy to see how things progress in the next book!

In Conclusion:

Collide will have you in awe and on the edge of your seat. If you’re looking for a little sci-fi with your romance, you will enjoy this story without a doubt.
