Product Description

For years, Livie Acosta has lived in a sheltered bubble, avoiding people, along with any aspect of life that requires one to show emotion. Not to mention her decision to stay close to her mother has her leaving the comfort of her own home nearly on a nightly basis to save her mother time and time again. It takes the sudden death of her mother to force Livie out into the world in search for a new purpose. Upon this forced quest she immediately meets one of two souls that are going to rock her world into a new dimension. Lawrence Hawthorne knows pain, grief, and emotions period, all too well. Despite his carefree nature and easy going personality he also harbors some tough demons that immediately draw him to Livie. It doesn't take long to recognize the deeply seeded pain that resides in her own soul and that leads Lawrence to call on his right hand man for help in protecting her.
As soon as Ocean Hawthorne steps onto the scene, Livie's world... the void world she's known since forever changes in a way that threatens to expose her secret. The Hawthorne cousins, vow to protect her from her self-destructive qualities amidst the angst, pain, and trials they all individually go through. Desperately they hold onto each other for support and as love and passion blossom it threatens to destroy the weak foundation of solitude that Livie has strived so hard to achieve. Will the intrusion of two beautiful and tortured souls finally be enough to induce the strength Livie needs to fight her demons, or will their love and devotion finally push her far enough to make the deepest cut she'd ever been forced to make?

HASH(0x9c35fdb0) out of 5 stars OMG, What did I just read? It so good!! Dec 12 2014
By Mary Sanchez Cortez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
WHAT DID I JUST READ AND WTF WAS THAT ENDING!!!! I going to dive into the next book but before I do I need to write down my thoughts.

"The distant look in her eyes told me she was either a fighter or fighting something."- Lawrence

Livie Acosta was never wanted but once her mother dies she determined to not let that hold her back. With a shaky past but her father wants to help her out. She set up and ready to go but when she sets foot into Lawrence Hawthorne new gym she in for more than just a job.

Lawrence meets Livie AKA Sunshine and after she knocks him on ass. He falls in love with her but not I am the one for you but I am the one to protect you. He knows she broken and reminds him of his broken cousin Ocean. She not only brings jokes but sunshine into his life something he cant seem to walk away from.

In comes in the broken Ocean Hawthorne. Broken from his sister death he just coming back from recovery and reckless life. After Lawrence calls him needing him he comes back to Dunlap to more than family and a job but he comes back to life once he meets Livie.

" In the brief moment, I felt my heart beat again. A heart that I haven't felt beat sine I held my bloodied and dying sister in my arms."- Ocean

This dynamic duo is laughs and loves. But Broken Livie can hide her secrets or feelings for ocean long. In the whirl wind romance of Ocean and Livie. The become a family and working team. But the once person that Livie has left that she knows can truly keep her afloat she thinks all is lost even Ocean cant keep her afloat. Even when she pleaded with him to not let her drown.

" Please don't leave me like everyone else. Don't let me drown, Ocean."-Livie
But when she tries to swim not even love can keep her afloat?

Oh M.A. took us out with a bang. This is a major cliffhanger with the ending. Not only for LIvie but those around her who become her family. Lawrence the fun loving older brother man whore who needs a girl friend but needs his sunshine. Ocean the broken fighter who needs Livie as much a s life vest.

Lawrence with his laughs, Ocean with there bromance. SO much going on with the steamy men in Livie life, a new gym, new opportunities. But its just not enough.

I cant stop thinking about this ending and even with the whirl wind of love you feel that develops between the 3 you can believe what she does. She broken that for sure but she a fighter, MMA fighter and I just hopes she fights for her life as hard as she fights in the gym.

HASH(0x9c35fe04) out of 5 stars A Must Read! Aug. 2 2014
By Amazeballs Book Addicts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I didn't read the blurb for this book, I just picked it up and began reading. By the title I thought it was going to be some sort of paranormal mermaid story. Right after I started reading I realized it was not a paranormal book. The book starts with Livie and Law's points of views. Law mentions his cousin Ocean. That's when I was like "Oh now I understand the title"

Ocean's Collide is a great book and it will not disappoint you. This book was amazing. It hooked me right from the beginning. This story has three POVs. We get Livie, Law, and Ocean's POV. It was really great to get into all three of their heads. Livie is a really strong character who has to deal with a lot of painful events in her life. She deals with her pain by cutting herself. Law and Ocean are both MMA trained fighters and have also had to deal with a lot of painful events. Before meeting Livie, he buries his pain in women and drugs.

Livie meets Law, when is applies to work at his new gym. Ocean and Law are cousins. Law has Ocean come to help him, and that's how Ocean meet Livie. They all need each to help themselves with the pain in their lives. Law and Livie's relationship is like a brother and sister relationship. While Ocean and Livie's relationship is very hot!

It's starts with a gut-wrenching scene and ends with a gut-wrenching scene. I didn't expect the ending, it was crazy. M. A. DeOlmos did a wonderful job writing this story and I can't wait for the next one Ocean's Submerged. This is a definite must read but make sure you have time to read it because once you start it you won't want to put it done until the end.

People are brought into our life for reasons we don't know of at the moment, and sometimes we will never understand why.

For Livie, Law and Ocean, they were destined to meet and enter each other's life... To save one another.

Livie aka Sunshine aka Liv, has a dark secret she's kept covered up by clothes. She's a cutter. She needs the pain, the rush of the first cut, the sight of red to cope.

Lawrence/ Law has a goal, to out his own MMA/ Fitness studio, but he can't do it alone.

Ocean's life has been spiraling out of coco toe since the night his bike crashed on a dark highway. With a stint in rehab behind him, he's ready for a do over.

Law's new business will bring them three all together and forge a true friendship.

But my friends, the first cut is always the deepest.

Ocean's Collide is a deep emotional story. We get three POVs, we see it all from their eyes. Each of these characters has a hurdle they need to overcome. With each other there to old the other up they can do just that. You will connect with each character on a totally different level then the other. You will cheer each one on, cry and get pissed for each of them. They are learning to live. Law with a new business, Ocean overcoming his past and Liv with her self harm, as well as letting them two into her life. There's a romantic connection, but I won't tell ya with who. Oceans Collide is a roller coaster of ups and downs. Liv, Law and Ocean have great chemistry. You will laugh and cry with them.

First thought when I finished Oceans Collide "Phew! That was intense!"

In Oceans Collide we get to meet the cast of characters that will take you on a hell of a journey. One that will not mellow out until the aptly named Hawthorne's Calm coming December 19th.

First there's Livie (Sunshine), a young woman struggling with some deep emotional scars that stemmed from her past. Right away the reader is thrust upon her situation, experiencing first-hand the kind of pain she struggles with on a daily basis. My heart went out to her immediately. I came to admire her strong will and her determination to make the most of her situation even when she resigned herself to being alone.

Then in comes Law, a sexy fighter that's making a life for himself in spite of his past. Law's a sweetheart with a heart of gold. A man who loves fiercely and protects those he loves, Law is the perfect mix of alpha male and caring man. He offers Livie a job and within hours of meeting her he vows to protect her from anyone, even from herself.

Law is the man that introduces Livie to the one who would be turning her world upside down--Ocean. You could see the sparks flying right from their very first meeting. Ocean is the very man Livie had vowed to stay away from, but the only one that has awaken the very thing she has tried to bury all these years--her emotions.

What comes along is a story packed full of funny moments, sexy moments and emotions, emotions, emotions.

I wouldn't know where to start summarizing the whole lot of events and I wouldn't want to anyway. I think this is a story that has to be experienced to be understood, so I won't even attempt to do it. I will say that the emotions are intense, some moments are darker than others and some are funny as hell.

M.A. DeOlmos didn't pull any punches when bringing Law, Ocean and Livie's story to the page. I liked that she took an unusual route when telling their story. These characters were deeply connected from the very moment they met. They were a family, one they made for themselves and I enjoyed having read their story as a unit rather than having the romance separate from them. Like I said, it's not something easily explainable nor understood. Not unless you experience the story for yourself.

All in all, a fantastic emotion driven read.

**** I Love Story Time was Gifted an ARC in exchange for an honest review ****

4 Stars!

I just got done reading Oceans Collide and I really liked it!! Liv is one hell of a kick ass fighting machine! I wish I had some of her moves! Liv is trying to get through life the best she can while keeping a secret that I didn't even see coming. I really connected with Liv. I loved her character and the relationship she had with her dad. Liv is moving on from the life that she has always had, in hopes of finding something that will truly make her happy. When she comes across a new martial arts studio that is opening up, she is hoping that they will hire her. With the back ground she has and what she has learned about martial arts from her dad, she knows it would be the perfect fit.

Lawrence (Law) just got his key to the new studio he is opening and can't help to feel like a little kid running around while looking at it. The last thing he expected was the beauty that was standing in the foyer when he was on his way out. Liv introduces herself to him explaining that she is looking for a job and hands him her portfolio. While Law is glancing at her portfolio, he decides she looks good on paper but can she fight? So, he challengers her and she accepts with out batting an eye.

I loved the scene of Law and Liv fighting. It was pretty intense and she got him good! From that point on Liv and Law immediately form a friendship. One that Law feels like he can't live without Liv and she feels the same way. Their friendship was really sweet. Law and Liv calmed each other down when times got rough. They were the shoulder that they both needed for one another. When Law is hit with a situation from a dad that he has not much of a relationship with, he calls his cousin Ocean to help him out.

Ocean is another Hawthorne that is all broody and hot! He's Law's cousin that is more of a brother to him. Ocean and Lawrence have always had the closet relationship, with both being fighters. They were two of the top fighters and would travel together when they both were on the road. Nothing got between them until Ocean had a life changing event causing him to lose contact with Law when he was forced to take action. However, now that Law needed him, he came to help him without a second thought. Once Liv and Ocean meet everything changes between the 3 of them!

There are a few twist and turns that go on in this story. The ending totally made my heart beat like crazy. I am really happy that I have book 2 waiting on my kindle so that I am not left waiting after that ending! Looking forward to diving into book 2. So, if you want to read a great book with not only one hot guy but 2, grab this one! I definitely recommend Oceans Collide!
