When Stars Collide by Micalea Smeltzer – Review

When Stars Collide


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.



4 Stars

I loved Thea and Xander. This book was such a sweet, fun, fast paced story. I loved reading about two friends that already loved each other fall in love with each other.

My Thoughts

Thea and Xander wake up in Vegas married. He persuades her to give the marriage the summer to work. It sounds silly, but for these two that had so many feelings for each other it was the perfect story. There was a lot going on outside of their relationship that weighed on them, but I they were able to come through everything with the other by their side.

Thea and Xander and their relationship was my absolute favorite part of this story. They were best friends that ended up getting married and having a crazy night of sex. Aside from a few awkward moments at the start they fell into stride of still being each others best friend but so much more at the same time. They were so cute, so sweet, so sexy together that I wanted to keep reading about them. I would love to see more from Thea and Xander and Cade and Rae.

Notable Quotes

I feel like I’ve waited long enough to call her mine. Now that I have her, I still don’t really have her, and it sucks.

When you’ve already loved someone the way I’ve loved him for years, it’s all too easy to fall over the edge of a new kind of love. A better kind of love.

Some things are meant to be and will find a way no matter the circumstances.

Xander and I are like two stars colliding—I always thought we’d turn into a black hole, but right now, in this moment, I see that’s not it at all. No, we’ve simply merged into one, making a larger, more magnificent star.
