Reader Reviews

"Ricardo’s Collisions follows a flawed man, torn between the two great loves of his life. The story goes on to show how Ricardo's indecision doesn't just impact him and his women but trickles down to ruin the lives of many more. The author makes a great note of it, writing, "What I have learned is there is drama that comes with loving that man. Lives collide and lives are destroyed. I call it Ricardo’s Collisions, and there are consequences with being connected to him". Ricardo, a man with a philandering father, decides to try his best to be a monogamous man but ultimately fails, claiming that he couldn't bear to choose between the two loves of his life. He begins living in two places and shuttles between his two families, an arrangement that worked well until the truth was revealed. How the characters deal with this betrayal makes up the rest of the book. 


The story is the star of this book. Fast-paced and intense, the pages flew by, and the story remained just as good. I was impressed by the switching point of view and how every character was noticeably different from the rest. The myriad of occupations the characters had added to the story, making it more interesting. I had multiple "Oh My God!" moments, and with every reveal/plot twist, I was both in awe and kicking myself for not having seen it coming.


All in all, I'd say that Ricardo’s Collisions is a must-read book for all lovers of this genre and I, for one, am looking forward to more work from the author!"

Reedsy Reviewer - Lady Poolitzer

"The key words here are saga and part one. From the first page this book captures your attention it's a combination mystery love story, Love of family and self. The characters are multidimensional and the character key at the beginning of each chapter was a wonderful idea, believe me you will need it.

Ricardo's Collision will leave you with your mouth open excited to turn the page, I could not but it down...and now I'm anxiously awaiting part two.

Though a series of consequences The Collision is real and the author Edward Sledge has a bright and twisted mind. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to move of his writings.

I recommend Ricardo's Collisions you won't be disappointed."

"I enjoyed the multiple perspectives of the story, which kept me guessing until the end.
As each "part" began, I found myself piecing together what role in the story the specific narrator played. But proved myself incorrect every time. The "Collisions" in this book are explosive and you will never guess how it ends. Looking forward to the next chapter in this series, Great read!"

"Ricardo's Collision was a fantastic book! It captures your attention in the beginning of the book and keeps your attention with twists and turns that you never see coming! It has action, mystery and of course sultry romance! I couldn't put this book down and I am so excited for the next book in the series! I need to find out what happens next with the characters! They left us with a cliff hanger! The authors are amazing writers!"
