EARLY REVIEW: Until We Collide by Charlotte Fallowfield

+

TITLE: Until We Collide

AUTHOR: Charlotte Fallowfield

PUBLICATION: February 21st 2016 by Charlotte Fallowfield

MY RATING: 5 STARS *****




What do you do when the guy you’re in love with is seeing someone else?That’s the dilemma facing Paige Taylor. All of her life she’s only ever had eyes for the gorgeous Alec Wright, but despite their undeniable chemistry, their timing has always been off. Fast approaching her thirtieth birthday, Paige despairs of ever finding love and a happy ever after. Her best friend Poppie tells her that she can either watch life pass her by, or grab it with both hands. She convinces Paige to throw herself back into the dating pool, or she could be waiting for Alec forever.

What Paige didn’t expect was the catalogue of dating disasters to follow. A neck brace, jelly fish, stitches, flashing and an encounter with a gorilla were some of the most memorable. Despite some downright hilarious, humiliating and cringe worthy dates, her biological clock is ticking and Paige is determined to keep trying until she finds the one.

Was Alec Wright always her Mr. Right, or is he still out there waiting to be found?

Join Paige in her quest to find the ultimate prize. Love.




ARC received in exchange for an honest review

Fresh and colorful like spring flowers.
This book has put a smile on my face from page one till the end.

The author has really surprised me!

The story is funny and romantic with no erotic sex scenes. Yes, I’ve read correctly.  No explicit sex. So a book for every age (or quite)!

Paige is the heroine and she reminds me of Bridget Jones, but better.
Every flip of the page was a total surprise, where everything could happen.
Paige Taylor and Alec Wright (**heart beating fast for him**) fall in love at a very young age, but real life has different plans for them. With the promise to meet again, “Until We Collide” (**Alec – sigh**), they live separate lives for more than ten years before finding their HEA.
During all those years Paige has a successful career but her love life is a complete disaster, date after date. She gets in some hilarious situation that I couldn’t stop laughing.
Alec becomes a famous photographer but he can’t settle down once and for all, his heart always beating only for Paige.
But it seems that fate wants them apart, that the right time to be finally together, to collide, seems at their fingertips just to vanish under their noses.
When their lives reach a crossroad, they have finally the courage to get, to snatch, what they really want and deserve.
Paige and Alec are great, but the secondary characters play a lead role into the story and complete it wonderfully.
I loved that the author doesn’t stress out the fact that Paige is a rich and famous model. The focus is always on her real life. She’s not "Paige the Supermodel", but she’s only "Calamity Paige", lovely, clumsy and funny.
A brilliant, captivating, funny, romantic comedy. Highly recommended.

  1. I really enjoyed your review but I gotta say, from reading the synopsis I wouldn't have picked this one up, sounds too cliche somehow and I HATE IT when the "biological clock" is mentioned :/ that's SO not the reason to do anything..
