Eighteen year old Gray McAllister is on the run. Leaving her dangerous past behind her is easier said than done, even when she finds herself at last able to forge a new life.

But then the planets align and Gray finds herself bumping into super-hot Thane Blackwell. Drooling over him from afar is safe but that's only until she is forced to look after Thane while he recovers from surgery.

Being holed up in her apartment is a bad bad idea. Can Gray control the fire that Thane seems light inside her, or will she give in to her deepest desires? Can Thane achieve his goal without hurting Gray in the process?

The stakes are impossibly high, but love and lies don't play nice with each other. Will Gray's past catch up with her first? Or will Thane's own secrets explode and tear them apart?

NA Review My Thoughts

Beautiful Collision is the first book in the new adult suspense thriller series, Desperation. It starts off right in the middle of the action too. The main character is on the run. We don’t know from who yet and we don’t know any of the details as to why, but you are thrown right in the middle of the action. It certainly was an effective way to draw the reader in. Beautiful Collision is told in dual narrative between Gray and Thane, the guy sent to keep an eye on her. I loved the way T.G. Ayer told the story. It flips back and forth between Gray and Thane, with more chapters from Gray’s perspective and also scattered throughout where flashback that gave us details slowly on the who and why Gray was running from.

I really liked both Gray and Thane. Gray is a tough girl, that is very apparent right from the start of the story. And she certainly has not had an easy life, but she never whines and plays the poor me card. She doesn’t even make excuses, she just keeps moving forward. It is a very admirable quality for someone her age to have. And I also loved that even though she was escaping, she still wanted to pursue an education. It was risky sure, but it was important to her. I think the more I got to know her the more I liked her and admired her. Thane too. The more he really watched Gray (or Sara) the more he fell for her. And I don’t blame him. She is a great girl.

The flashbacks in the story played a huge role in describing the kind of man that Gray was running from. At first, I didn’t like the flashbacks. I caught myself skimming them because they are very violent. But as the story went on and I became more and more invested in the characters and plot, I liked the flashbacks more. Because they are basically the sole method for understanding the background and just who this awful man is. Thane is part of the FBI and he wants to take the guy down. I won’t tell you what he is involved with because I am not sure if it is supposed to be a secret or not, but it is some pretty heavy stuff. This book is not for the easily offended or faint of heart. It deals with some very dark issues and some awful crimes. But it is an excellent read, and the ending left me dying for the next book. It does end in a cliffhanger, so you should be aware of that, but don’t let it deter you. The second book in the desperation series is coming out in early 2015 so you won’t have too long of a wait. If you like suspense, thrillers or dark and gritty books, this is a great new adult series for you to check out.

About T.G. Ayer

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.
