Release Blitz ~ When Stars Collide by Micalea 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.

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 could be better than waking up beside the man you love wearing his wedding ring?
Remembering how you got there!
When Stars Collide is a sweet, brothers best friend + sister love story.
Xander & Thea have been avoiding the attraction between themselves for years. 
Thea's brother has warned Xander off every chance he had. They both ignored feelings for the sake of her brother until they wake up in Vegas in the same bed wearing matching rings.
Thea freaks out. Immediately wanting the marriage annulled but Xander has other plans. He intends to keep her legally bound to him until she gives in and realizes what they could have together.
Thea finally gives in and agrees to give him the summer to see if they can make it as a couple, but they have to keep everything a secret.
Sometimes secrets are harder to keep than you think!
And just when you think things will be fine a bomb is dropped that may change things for our hero and heroine.
Yea, I wasn't thrilled with the ending. I mean that was the #1 cheerleader for Xander and Thea and now.....

I loved these two together, I did not read book one but will go back and do that so I'm caught up when the next one comes out.
I love a good forbidden romance falling in love with your brother's best friend is right up at the top of the list. I read this one in one day, I couldn't stand the thought of putting it down until I knew how it would end.
