“I can do pain. That’s the easy part of life. It’s everything else, happiness, laughter, love, that’s fucking complicated.” The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden, by Jessica Sorensen

5 outta 5 stars!
Author, Jessica Sorensen gutted me with this book – I didn’t think two more tragic people could find any scrape of happiness – let alone together, with out destroying each other.

Synopsis:

There are those who don’t get luck handed to them on a shiny platter, who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, who don’t get saved.

Luck was not on Callie’s side the day of her twelfth birthday when everything was stolen from her. After it’s all over, she locks up her feelings and vows never to tell anyone what happened. Six years later her painful past consumes her life and most days it’s a struggle just to breathe.

For as long as Kayden can remember, suffering in silence was the only way to survive life. As long as he did what he was told, everything was okay. One night, after making a terrible mistake, it seems like his life might be over. Luck was on his side, though, when Callie coincidentally is in the right place at the right time and saves him.

Now he can’t stop thinking about the girl he saw at school, but never really knew. When he ends up at the same college as Callie, he does everything he can to try to get to know her. But Callie is reserved and closed off. The more he tries to be part of her life, the more he realizes Callie might need to be saved.

Callie is damaged – a teenager who had a pretty normal and happy life until something unimaginable happens to her on her 12th birthday – it shatters her and turns her into a stranger. She has no friends – barely makes it through high school clutching on to the idea that she can just get out of her town – and off to college. At a graduation party, where she goes with her mother to pick up her brother – she runs into Kayden – a popular football guy she’s barely said two words too – in all four years of high school. He was on her father’s football team – and though she thinks he’s pretty  hot – she doesn’t have the strength to even talk to him. But when something happens at the party – she’s a witness to something horrific – a secret that Kayden has been covering up since he was a child – they seem to have an unspoken bond. But it isn’t until they run into each other – attending the same college that their relationship starts to evolve from stranger – to friend – to something A LOT more.

He’s slowly easing her out of her shell – and she’s finally opening up and admitting to the horrible things that happened to her – at the hands of a family friend that she’s afraid her family will believe over her. Callie and Kayden confess their deepest secrets – secrets they’ve covered up with lies all of these years – but are finally able to share with one another and they’re hopeful they can start to heal…. or so it seems.

This was one of those books that left me a blubbering mess – blowing my nose over and over – especially the last half of the book. And then leaving us with one of the most gut wrenching cliff hanger’s ever – the author picked up by a publisher had to push back the release date of the sequel so we were left almost a year? Maybe more before we found out what the hell happened??? IT WAS AGONIZING! I got the Redemption of Callie and Kayden on my Kindle yesterday morning, and had a hard time working – as my Kindle just taunted me in my purse. Stayed up WAY too late last night reading – so much that a four shot white mocha from Starbucks didn’t even help me wake up. I’m more than half asleep while writing this. But you have to – HAVE to read The Coincidence – and then on to Redemption. They’re are less then five bucks and you will NOT regret it!

  1. I have this book on pre-order. I have decided to give Jessica Sorensen another chance since The Scret of Ella and Micha didn’t impress me. Hopefully this book will take my likings for it seems to be rated high by everyone.
