Summary from Goodreads:

Military legacy Ari Alexander has survived alien spies, WWIV, and a changing world order. But when the new leader of Earth uses Jackson—the only boy she's ever let herself care about—to get to her, Ari has no choice but to surrender.

To free Jackson, she agrees to travel to the national bases to train others to fight. What she discovers is a land riddled with dying people. Ari has the power to heal by turning the fighters into aliens—half-breeds like her. If she succeeds, together, they have a chance at overthrowing the alien leader, Zeus. But if she fails, everyone she holds dear will be wiped away forever.

Once again, everything Ari’s come to believe is thrown into question. In a world of uncertainty, loyalties are tested, lies are uncovered, and no one can be trusted. If Ari and Jackson have any hope at survival and at preserving a life for the future, they must fight the final war with their eyes wide open.

Fallon's Review:

What an emotional conclusion. Everything Ari thought she knew about earth has changed. Friendships once strong now come unraveled. The war is here and nobody comes out of this without battle wounds whether physical or emotional. This is a conclusion to a series you will not want to miss. 

Melissa gives us those swoon worthy moments that we all crave from her. Then there were the awkward moments you were dying for Ari and Jackson.  Not one aspect is left out of this book. Melissa is one of the best writers at world building and she followed through right to the end. This book will make you cry and laugh. 

We get a glimpse into the future at the end with one of my favorite epilogues ever written. I do not like when an epilogue is only a short time after. In Collide you will get a glimpse of 10 years into the future. This is a must read alien book. It is action packed, romantic adventure you will not be able to put down. I am giving this 5 out of 5 stars.
