Ten seconds can change everything.
I fell in love with him twelve years ago when I was little more than a child. In the blink of an eye, he went from my best friend’s big brother to Tucker – the boy who made my heart beat faster with just a look. But he never saw me as anything more than family and I was forced to let him go.
Years later, all it took was one kiss, ten seconds of his lips pressed against mine, to knock my world off its axis and resurrect every old feeling I had buried so long ago. Now, there’s only one thing that I want and his name is Tucker Harrington.
Something is holding him back. There’s a darkness inside him that sometimes clouds his eyes and erases every piece of the fun, mischievous boy I fell in love with. His secrets haunt him and if he’s not willing to fight, how will we ever survive?

He was her best friend’s brother. Daisy fell in love with Tucker twelve years ago yet never felt as if he saw her as more than the girl who hung out with his sister. Until he kissed her. Now things between them have changed. Except not in the way she expected.
I like the idea of Collateral Damage. I love how close and supportive the characters are. There’s plenty of depth yet the story was a bit predictable when it came to Tucker and Daisy. You could really tell how much they cared about each other and their chemistry was unquestionable. I am glad that Daisy stood up for herself and what she wanted in the end. That she put herself first and decided that she deserved more. Tucker was very frustrating to say the least. He had his reasons for what he did but he’s a bit selfish. Initially, it was like he didn’t care that how he wanted things would effect Daisy as long as he got what he wanted. No, she didn’t make the best decision when she agreed to it but it doesn’t change the fact that he wanted things to be that way. That being said, I feel like the supporting characters and what happened in book one somewhat took over the story. Almost as if what Tucker and Daisy were going through was just filler to that issue. I understand that this was supposed to coincide with book one but at the same time I feel like if this is supposed to be Daisy and Tucker’s story then that’s who I want to read about. They are who the story’s main focus should be on. I didn’t really get that with this book. Since it does revolve around what happens in book one, I also understand that certain portions of that story should be highlighted or mentioned but it made it really hard for me to focus on what was going on with Daisy and Tucker. Aside from that, I thought Collateral Damage was written well. I just wish I could have gotten more out of the main characters and what they were going through.
