Ivy Carrigan doesn’t know what she wants.

Daughter of a famous female rock star, it’s difficult to decide who to trust, who to believe in, so when Ivy finds herself in a predicament, it’s hard to determine Gage Everly’s motive. He couldn’t possibly love her, including her secret.

Gage Everly knows exactly what he wants.

From the moment he met Ivy, his world spun out of control. He’s never wanted anyone as much as he wants her, secret and all. Now, if he could only convince her to take a chance on him.

“When two stars collide, Ivy, they either collapse or merge to form something better. You and me. We collide, and we’ll be so much more. Together.”


If you read After Care, and wanted to know more about Gage and Ivy, here it is.

This novella can also be read as a stand alone, which might make you curious about that sexy silver fox, Uncle Tommy. His story is here:

My Review…

Another stellar book by L.B. Dunbar!

When I read After Care I didn’t just fall in love with Edie and Tommy, I wanted to know more about Ivy and Gage.  They made an impression on me, even though they were secondary characters in the story.

Well Ms. Dunbar came through beautifully with Collide! We get Ivy and Gage’s story! This story takes place years before After Care. 

Ivy is trying to recover from the death of her mom.  She is also coming to terms on the situation she finds herself in and what that means for her future.  I could feel her struggles, her fear for the future and her place in the world.  She had an extraordinary upbringing, being the daughter of a rock star and that has molded her into the person she is today.

Gage, oh my me….what a hero is he?!? The first time he collides (wink) with Ivy, sparks fly and that chemistry stays with him for years.  When Ivy’s news breaks, he truly steps up like a champion.  He is there for her even when she is pushing him away.

This is definitely a slow burn novel, but it’s an amazingly agonizing burn and it’s so swoony to read!  I loved the stipulation that Gage gave Ivy.  I was cheering for them until the very end!

This just story makes me want to go back and re-read After Care. In fact, I think I will!
