Book: Collilde
Author: Megan Hart

Review: After a childhood accident, Emmaline suffered from 'fugue' states (blackouts) for years. Fugue free for two years, Emma is finally able to move out of her parents house, get a drivers license and live a life of her own. But when she meets 70s movie star Johnny Dellasandro, she starts experiencing fugue states that are long and vivid like nothing she ever experienced before. 

Megan Hart is my favorite romance author but this book missed the mark for me. It reminded me of The Time Traveler's Wife but the main character ***minor spoiler alert*** doesn't realize she's a time traveler until the end of the book. During her fugue states, Emma is transported back to Johnny's house in 1978. Because Emma thinks it's a dream, she almost immediately has sex with him. Every time she travels back to 1978, there is a lot of physical interaction, very little dialogue. That is fine except there was very little relationship development in both time lines. In present day, she is kind of a stalker type (she watches his old movies and obsesses over him) and he tries to avoid her attempts at being a good neighbor. She was overall a rather boring person (not her fault though-she was forced to live with her parents for almost her whole life due to the blackout issue) and he was...okay I guess? I don't know. I'm still not sure why she saw in the present day Johnny other than obsessing over his old movies. 

Not my favorite Megan Hart book, but well written and it had some fun steamy scenes. 

Grade: 2/5
