When We Collide by A.L. Jackson

Book Description:
From the bestselling author of Pulled and Take This Regret comes a gripping new tale of loss and love.
William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.
Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.
When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again.
In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.
Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.
But he never imagined what that fight might cost him. 
A.L. Jackson gives you an intimate look into the lives of a family bound by an unseen connection in this contemporary romance with a supernatural twist.

My Thoughts:
This was an interesting book.  William left his family and everything behind when he left six years earlier.  He is now called home because of an emergency and finding more than he'd ever imagined.  Maggie has been living a terrible life and now that William is back, she is both terrified and elated.
The characters were so wonderfully messed up that you rooted for the story to unfold easy for them.  William's whole family was wonderfully forgiving even if it takes them a while.  Maggie has issues that started long before William even entered her life.  Now her life has gotten exceptionally more complicated and she is terrified what all the implications mean.
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a true love story with a twist or two.
