New Release and Review: When Stars Collide by Micaela Smeltzer

Title: When Stars Collide
Series: Light in the Dark #2 
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: August 30, 2016

We were like two stars orbiting each other—dancing around the possibility that one day we might collide. When we finally did, we opened up a black hole, obliterating everything around us. No one would be the same.

Least of all, us.
Waking up in Vegas married to the guy of your dreams sounds like a good thing, right? Not when you’re Thea Montgomery and said guy is your brother’s best friend.

Thea and Xander have always avoided the connection between them because her brother would never approve. Now, they’re married— the strongest bond you can have as a couple—and they’re not even a real couple…unless they want to be.

Thea wants an annulment immediately, but Xander’s waited too long to see her become his and he won’t let her go easily.

If she wants a divorce, fine, but he wants the summer to convince her that he’s the one. If at the end of the summer she still wants to end their marriage he’ll sign the papers, but until then…
All is not fair in love and war.

I guess I will be once again in the minority but I can only give 3 stars to the book, because I love how the author writes but not how she develops the story.

See, this is a friends-to lovers story, a funny and easy read that keeps you entertained, because Micaela writes wonderfully about the couple. This couple (Thea and Xander) wake up married after a fun night in Vegas, the problem is not that they are married because they like-love each other, the thing is how will Thea's brother react? And how she can truly believe the boy she married is in love with her? You see, is scary. He needs to prove her they are the real deal and well, there's the best friend's brother issue.

And I get, that was what attracted me about this story, the synopsis captured me in a way that I was almost signing when I had this book in my hands but once I started, the book lost my attention. When I wasn't feeling really connected (something I didn't expect) I read the first book in the series, and no, I didn't like that one.
In fact, what I liked about book one was the little hints I received from this couple!! I was expecting a mind-blowing chemistry, and boy, did I receive it but I don't how, I lost focus and the book turned to be something normal nothing that would turn my world upside down.

When I say that it's not fully developed, I guess there was something missing from this one. A little more of excitement, or a little more of angst between this couple would have been better for me.

Overall this was a sweet and light read, a sweet friends to lovers romance that I recommend! I guess it wasn't my time for this one!

*I received an arc in exchange of an honest review*


Holy mother of all hangovers. 

I’d succumbed to the lure of Vegas and gotten completely wasted. Granted, that’s what everyone did in Las Vegas but I like to think I usually have more sense than the social norm. 

I rub my eyes and blink them open. The hotel room comes into formation around me. The walls are a warm golden color and the flat screen on the wall plays some home improvement show. I can see the bathroom from the bed, the tiled walls and large soaking tub. 

I roll over onto my side, hoping I can sleep off the hangover, and reel back.
“Oh my God,” I cry, flailing in bed. 

My legs kick the sleeping guy beside me. 

Not just any sleeping guy. 

Oh no. 

Xander Kincaid, my brother’s best friend, lays in the bed beside me.

His dark hair tumbles over his forehead and his cheeks are covered with several days worth of scruff. His chest is bare and…holy shit. He’s naked. 

I look down. 

Oh God, I’m naked too. 

“What’s wrong?” He asks, reaching his left hand out to pull me closer to him. That’s when I see it. 

“Is that a wedding band?” I scream shrilly. 

His eyes narrow. “You don’t fucking remember?” 

I shake my head and look at my own hand. A thin silver band rests on my finger. “What did we do?” 

He sits up in bed and I try to ignore how adorably rumpled he looks with his hair sticking up. 

Everything begins flooding back to me in quick bursts.




Confessions of love and desire. 

A wedding chapel. 



A contract.

“We’re married,” I whisper. “Holy shit.” It’s all I’ve ever wanted—to be with Xander, but not like this. Never like this. “My brother is going to kill us.”

What I remember the most about that day was that it was completely ordinary. Then with one stupid decision everything fell apart and nothing was ever the same.
Rae Wilder wants nothing but a do over—but life doesn’t work that way. She’s stuck living out the consequences of her actions. At times the burden feels unbearable.

College is supposed to be her second chance.

New place.

New people.

New life.

No one to know what she did.

Despite that, she has still vowed to avoid everyone and everything at all costs.

Unfortunately for her, an accidental run-in with the campus heartthrob, Cade Montgomery, derails that plan.

He’s determined to thaw the ice around her heart and expose the girl she used to be. He wants to show her that life is worth living for and that she really is a Rae of Sunshine.
