REVIEW: The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorenson

by - 4:28 PM

“In the existence of our lives, there is a single coincidence that brings us together and for a moment, our hearts beat as one.” 

Back of the book blurb:

For Kayden, suffering in silence was the only way to survive. If he was lucky, he could keep his head down, do as he was told, and make it through the day. But one night it seemed like his luck—and his life—might finally end…until an angel named Callie appeared just in time to rescue him.
 Callie has never believed in luck. Not since her twelfth birthday when everything was taken from her. After the worst was over, she locked up her feelings and vowed never to tell anyone what had happened. Now, six years later, she continues to struggle with the painful secret that threatens to consume her.
 When fate lands Kayden and Callie at the same college, Kayden is determined to get to know the beautiful girl who changed his destiny. Quiet and reserved, Callie still fears letting anyone else into her world. But Kayden is certain that Callie has come back into his life for a reason. And the more he tries to be a part of her life, the more he realizes that, this time, it’s Callie who needs to be saved.

 My rating:

Okay first off, let’s talk about that goddamn motherfucking ENDING. Who in the actual FUCK does Jessica Sorenson think she IS giving us that behemoth of a cliffhanger? I literally shouted, “Are you fucking kidding me?” as soon as I turned the page and it was the introduction to the second book. Which, of course, I was happy to speed through to make sure my baby Kayden was okay. That’s sort of a spoiler, isn’t it? Sorry. At least I don’t give you the details of what happened. You’re welcome. I’m so pissed because I don’t get paid until next week so I can’t buy the next book until then. I am, however, happy to realize there are many more books in this series so, yay!

This book. UGH, THIS BOOK! I started it at 8pm last night, took an hour break to watch Scream the TV series at 10pm, and then finished it from 11pm to 3am. It was soooooooo addicting. I love beginnings of books that put you right into the action and you hit the ground running. It’s just glorious and gets me worked up and excited to read more, and that’s exactly what this book did.

Kayden was SOOOO precious, oh my god. He was so charming and cute and fucking sexy. Like, it was heartbreaking to find out what his life had been like and how he was pretty much numb to it now. That is literally the saddest thing ever, the phrase, “I’m used to it.” LIKE, NO, KAYDEN, I’LL PROTECT YOU. YOU SHOULDN’T EVER BE USED IT. EVER. I love you, Kayden. I do.

I also love Callie, which is why I’ll let her stay… I guess… whatever. I couldn’t even imagine being in her position and how to deal with what she’s been through. And again, it breaks my damn heart that people just brushed her off as a freak and an anorexic instead of trying to understand that something seriously went wrong in her life. Like, I got lucky with my parents. I might not be best friend close with them, but they’d know if something was wrong with me. This book just makes me appreciate them that much more.

As you can tell, this book is thoroughly dark compared to a lot of NA novels. I loved it. I absolutely, completely, and utterly loved this novel. The way Sorenson writes and the way she makes a story truly come alive is so captivating and intense… obviously… I read it in like 6 hours. It was just that damn good.

PLEASE, PLEASE PICK UP THIS BOOK. You won’t regret it. It’s truly beautiful and amazing and that damn cliffhanger will have you automatically ordering the next book or driving to your local bookstore to yell at someone to get you the damn BOOK BECAUSE YOU NEED! IT! RIGHT! NOW!

Happy Reading!
