  1. Looking back at that moment, I think I d been waiting for death to take me too, not for someone to rescue me I think I d been shaking in that seat, praying for some internal injury to make itself known Waiting for some part of me to bleed out, so I could close my eyes and join my girlfriend, wherever she d gone Three months after a fateful car crash where he was driving in a freak storm that claimed the lives of his beloved girlfriend, best friend and his girlfriend, Lucas is still unable to eve [...]

  2. Finishing this book was such a relief I thought I d never be able to end it but miraculously, the last strand of patience in me held out long enough for me to do so and no matter how great other readers may consider this book is, no one could blame me for feeling this way That was 1, 069 pages ebook version Phew My agony over the length however was rewarded by some of the good points I liked about this book I liked that the story reminded me of several highly noted YA contemporaries like If I St [...]

  3. I wanted to love this book and it came highly recommend however I found myself skimming and I never skim 1 3 of the book could have been removed and I wouldn t have missed the pages I felt like I was in a never ending loop.I did enjoy the second half but since it was so incredibly unnecessarily long and I was wishing it was over I wasn t able to fully appreciate the ending sadly my first 2 star review Update Alright so I felt incredibly guilty for giving it a 2 star What annoyed the crap out of [...]

  4. Let me just tell you this book, the feels I didn t even know this book existed until recently, but since I am going to be meeting SC Stephens in a few days I wanted to read it I was blown away Lucas West as the driver in a car accident that killed his best friends the summer before his senior year of high school The story begins with us meeting a grieving Lucas and seeing how going back to school in his small town is pure torture That is until the new girl sees something in him and wants to help [...]

  5. I was an emotinal wreck after reading this book I was near tears times then i can count and in the end they streamed freely If any book in this world is angsty I wanna say this one is About the whole book, or maybe 90% is angst But don t be scared of reading it because while there is angst, there is also light and hope This is Lucas story About his healing He was just an average teenage boy, star in the football team with many friens and a beautiful girlfriend He goes from that to a living nigh [...]

  6. 4 1 2 stars An emotional first person account about a teenage boy, Lucas, who suffers loss in one tragic night, than most people would endure in a lifetime The guilt consumes him, and even though he knows the rumors of intoxication are not true, he allows everyone to continue to believe otherwise I felt that this was a way for him to punish himself, because their deaths did come at his hands, albeit indirectly Even though it was an accident, he feels he was responsible and can t forgive himself [...]

  7. Intensely emotional I just can not get enough of S.C Stephens books The Thoughtless series is my absolute all time favorite series So, when I realised that she d written this and I hadn t read it, it launched itself straight to the top of my TBR list And I wasn t disappointed It hurts to much Life it hurts so much I don t feel like I belong Ever since the crash, I haven t felt like I should be here, and now I know why Before I go any further, if I had to pick a fault, it is the length of this bo [...]

  8. Collision Course is my all time favourite S.C Stephens book It moved me than any other story I ve read and had me living and breathing every thought and emotion that the main character had The feelings this book evokes are so powerful and gut wrenching that at times it was almost painful to read, yet at the same time the story line was so compelling I couldn t stop By time the book was over, I d cried than I had in months.Collision Course is truly a masterpiece and show cases exactly how good [...]

  9. Frankly, this book was way less emotional than I thought it d be I felt bad for Lucas, what happened to him, what he had to go through, and liked how he managed to overcome it, but that s about it I think I snickered a few times too But Lucas cries in it, I didn t reading it ok, guy, not supposed to, but you get the point.Why The entire plot felt a little too contrived Obviously I don t have any personal experience, but it was than a little unbelievable that the entire town would blame Lucas fo [...]

  10. A soft smile lit her lips as her hand clenched mine, her beautiful gray eyes on our fingers For a full minute, I was dead But somehow, somehow they brought me back Her eyes shifted back to mine and she gave me a pointed look And there is nothing quite like death, to make you reevaluate your life I think you get that Oh my crying at the same time smiling heart S.C Stephens , you are most definitely the Queen of Angst Your books manage to turn me into a sobbing blabbering mess of emotions , and a [...]

  11. I really haven t the talent to convey my appreciation of this story This was the 4th book I had read by S.C Stephens having read the vampire books first Now, I loved those books and the characters and I read them voraciously This was entirely different The beauty of this book and the many characters within it meant it just soared Yes, this is fiction but it moved me deeply I am male, I am in my 40 s this is no lightweight throw away of a book summed up by the Romance genre and I am not ashamed t [...]

  12. WOW WOW WOW Where do I even begin I have never read a book that has left me sobbing in so many places before Knowing what this poor kid went through Just sitting here writing this review, I am left with chills I m done reading and it still has an effect on me.I knew when I was already getting emotional during the Prologue that I should stop reading and pick up another bookbut I didn t I kept reading BIG MISTAKE 10% in I was already status updating that I was crying and didn t even know if I coul [...]

  13. I am in total awe of this book and the amazing S.C Stephens It was truly an extremely deep emotional ride from start till finish A heartbreaking beautiful story that at times made me forget to breathe and had me feeling every emotion that Lucas and Sawyer had At times it was almost too hard to read because I felt so emotional and also cause I couldn t see anything because of the constant tears in my eyes went through 2 boxes of man sized tissues in this one LOL Lucas looses his 2 best friends an [...]

  14. 3.5 to 4 starsThis was a hard book to rate for many reasons The beginning started off so strongly and S.C Stephens, I ve come to find, is a magnificent author However, I do agree with past reviews It could have been cut in half and had a MUCH stronger impact Now, when I say that, it does not in ANY way mean this story was not a strong one I am a sap for romances, love stories, movies, etc but I have rarely been known to cry on many books I am pretty proud of that fact But S.C Stephens is one of [...]

  15. This is an emotional account of a teenage boy Lucas who suffers a tragic loss Guilt ridden, he closes himself off to the world that is until he meets Sawyer Sawyer is a character who you cant help but love Although she has issues of her own, she helps Luc through some of the hardest times of his life and find the closure he needs Really did love reading this book, found myself in tears at times but it really is a beautiful story of love, getting through the hard times and moving on.

  16. LucasMy heart never broke for someone so much when reading a book This story is amazing, heart breaking, extremely emotional, and heart warming You will go thru every emotion reading this book You will need to put the book down and breath, cause you won t even realize you are holding your breath while reading it.Lucas and his BEST FRIENDS and the LOVE OF HIS LIFE are in a horrible accident and the only survivor is Lucas He blames himself and he is having an extremely hard time dealing with the a [...]

    S.C Stephens is simply an amazing author I will forever love the Thoughtless series above all other books and knew this story would also be a good one.She just has a way of bringing characters to life I felt Lucas pain and was rooting for him to find a way to forgive himself for a simple mistake and to find love and happiness with Sawyer.I loved their relationship and all the tenderness they held for each other This one is definitely worth a 5 star review

  18. I enjoyed this story but think it could ve been told concisely Lot s of narrative, especially in the latter part of the book I started skimming pages at the half way point, or thereabouts because there was a lot of repetition of dialogue and or events There were also too many dream sequences which got monotonous since they didn t really move the story ahead.There were a couple of spots when I questioned a word choice For instance, a seventeen year old girl using the term, cronies , to describe [...]

  19. I tried I really did But I just couldn t finish this book.How many times can a break down happen without finally having some resolution It seemed like Lucas break downs are always happening but without the much awaited moving on stage This is not a long story, it is a dragged out one that has repeated scenes over and over and over again Lucas breaks down, Sawyer consoles him, he falls asleep and dreams about his dead girlfriend best friend friend or all of them No revelations, no resolutions, no [...]

  20. 4 stars My heart broke for Lucas The guilt that he went through with being the only one to survive that horrible accident that took the 3 important people in his life away He was bullied in school and even the teachers gave him accusing looks All Lucas wanted was to get thru his senior year of high school When he thought he had no one he found Sawyer Sawyer became his strength and his light She helped him when no one else seemed to care.

  21. For the first time since the accident that had taken my beloved friends from me I completely woke up There were so many emotions going on for me though out this book I smiled, I cried, I got angry, and I felt so much love between Swayer Lucas Great read.

  22. Read reviews on my blog Like me on FacebookCollision Course is exactly the reason I LOVE books It has everything from romance, death, grief, anger, friendship, even a little forbidden romance.I don t know how Ms Stephens does it every book I have read of hers is just amazing The details she gives her characters makes you feel like you really know them and fall in love with them Collision Course was no exception That is why she is one of my favorite authors, what she writes in her books makes th [...]

  23. Dreams didn t mean anything But what if dreams were all I had Oh gosh where to begin on how great this book is Lucas is an average high school boy with his whole life ahead of him In a split second, his whole life is changed When he meets Sawyer a few months later, she becomes a small ray of light in his very dark and depressing world This book should come with a warning as to how much it will break your heart How the author so accurately gets in to the mind of a teenage boy is beyond me, but ev [...]

  24. Lucas is involved in a horrible car crash along with his best friends and girl friend who all did not survive It s everyone s worse nightmare and unfortunately Lucas has to live it Note I love this author s Thoughtless series and wanted to read of her work If you re looking for the same type of storyis is not it Gaaahhhis book is soooo depressing That doesn t mean it s not good because it is And while I love emotional books, this one had me worried that I might not be able to finish it It was a [...]

  25. I really liked this book It was an emotional ride that really tugged at my heart.I will say though, after hearing about this book from my friends, I had expected to be bawling I will admit I did tear up in two places view spoiler his outburst after the dance and the graduation speech hide spoiler , but I was expecting a lot This is not to say the book wasn t sad or depressing because it was At times, I felt Stephens did try a little too hard to pull every emotional string you had, which pushed [...]

  26. I will admit that I was a little hesitant to read this book I read the reviews and they all said the same thing That it was sad and you will cry But I loved thoughtless and effortless and wanted to read another one of SC Stephens books I m glad I did The reviews were right, it was sad and my eyes did tear up quite a few times But it was such a wonderful story It s a story about Lucas who lost his girlfriend, best friend since age 5, and his best friends girl in a car accident He was behind the w [...]

  27. Wow, another review I am writing with giant panda eyes and the tears still rolling down my cheeks What a beautiful, heart wrenching and deeply emotional read My heart broke for Lucas from the very first scenes of the book As the sole survivor of a car accident that claimed the lives of his two best friends and his girlfriend, he is plagued by memories of that fateful night, the guilt and grief crushing him during his waking hours With rumors circulating as to his ability to drive that night, tho [...]

  28. Generally I have like S C Stephens books but I had a real problem with certain aspects of Collision Course My high school has had to endure many tragedies over the past few years resulting from car accidents One happened actually really close to Lucas s circumstances I didn t happen to be friends with the boy and girl who survived but I never once saw them treated with anything other than tenderness and sympathy They had been at a party an had not been drinking that night but simply lost control [...]

  29. Wow Collision Course was amazing But be in the right mind set before you read it The first 275 pages are depressing as hell The turmoil that Lucas endured and how cruel his peers were makes my blood boil Sawyer was my favorite She stuck by him through thick and thin.I don t want to saying and ruin for those of you who haven t read this gem yet I am starting to think I am one of the last ones tho side note This book is 327 pages long, but because the writing is amazing and has a lot of substance [...]

  30. This book was phenomenal I cry when I read, but only at really.goodoks This one had me going a few different times throughout The journey the characters went on during this bookI just can t even imagine I loved this book so much
