5 Stars from Readers’ Favorite!

Collision is the first novel I have read by Kate L. Mary. Her words are magnificently intriguing. From the first page and onward, readers wil5star-shiny-hrl be interested in what Collision has in store for them. This romantic suspense
novel will lure readers back every time. This story has mystery, danger, and drama to keep readers glued until the ending. Kara, the main protagonist, takes readers into suspense immediately with her car accident, and then into danger as she digs into dark secrets. Secrets that may lead to more danger than she wanted. However, she doesn’t embrace this frightening trail by herself. She seeks help from a man she knows. Together they set off to find answers that Kara may not want to know after all.

Derek, once a plain and nerdy boy, is now a man that will make any woman blush. I loved reading as the characters meet once again after so much time. Both have changed and grown into full adults. Soon, they will be headed on a journey together. Not just finding love but one much more dangerous than readers expected. The suspense and fear hang in the air, on every page. This quickly leads readers to turn the pages in a hurry to find out what happens next. Kate L. Mary’s fictional world is fascinating and well-developed. The characters are believable in a way that will leave readers on the edge of their seats. I absolutely loved this brilliant tale, and I would highly recommend it to all.Collision by Kate L. Mary is a well-written romance that will drag readers deeply into the destiny of the two brilliantly created protagonists. Kara and Derek seem to meet again just as if fate has placed them there.


When eighteen-year-old Kara Jones gets into a car accident on the way home from college, she’s left with more than a few bruised ribs, a busted cell phone, and a totaled car. After a slip-up at the hospital, she’s shaken to discover that her family isn’t all it seems. And now her mother’s strange behavior and willingness to do anything to protect her secrets—including pulling Kara out of school—have Kara floundering in the dark.

Enter Derek Miller, a former classmate who’s dealing with family issues of his own. His nerdy charm is too much for Kara to resist, and she’s even more amazed when he agrees to help her dig into her mother’s past. Together they investigate her mother’s old friends and boyfriends, hoping to discover who Kara really is. Instead, they find disturbing connections to the dark history of Kent State University, and an ever expanding maze of mystery surrounding Kara’s birth.

As Kara and Derek chase secrets, she realizes he’s the only person she can trust. But as they get closer to the truth, the disturbing answers reveal a web of evil far darker and further reaching then they’d imagined, leaving Kara to wish she’d never asked the questions in the first place, and to wonder if some secrets are better left untold…

“This is a really good suspenseful story, and I love Derek and Kara together. They’re just such a solid couple for two people who are really young. When Derek tells her he can see them together forever I swooned. Their chemistry is not only sexy, but they are also playful. It brings some levity to a suspenseful story.”
