Review: The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden
By: Jessica Sorensen
Release Date: December 13, 2012
Series: The Coincidence
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.
This book just unbelievably blew my mind. The amount of hurt, pain, passion, and intense feelings was none to short in this book. From the very beginning emotions were swirling around and the intensity was breathtaking and just out of this world. I just can't wait to pick up another book from this author and it dearly pains me that the next book in this series is not until next year, ugh.
Imagine two people so broken accidentally meeting up with one another at the most inopportune time, but that single meeting has changed both their lives and they are connected forever without even knowing it. Callie has just started college and it turns out that Kayden, the boy she had that meeting with just so happens to go to the same college and they start running into each other, sometimes literally. Their relationship starts to intensify as their secrets come out slowly whether willingly or in a drunken stupor but their attraction supersedes these secrets and their friendship grows.
Kayden has lead a life of abuse by his father, to the point where he doesnt' even feel pain anymore but that day that Callie came in and stopped his father from continuing the beating changed his life, Callie on the other hand went through something traumatic when she was twelve and doesn't let anyone get close to her. So as you can see these are quite some dilemmas they have but they work through it and watching their relationship grow and their secrets come out are intense and the passion between them is inevitable. When situations get harder they grow closer even though Callie just wants to run away sometimes she starts to be braver and stand up for herself, as well as Kayden he too starts to stand up for himself.
The ending, was the mind blowing experience and I can't even talk about it because you have to read it for yourself, really I just can't wait to read the next book it's just not fair that it doesn't come out until next year. It just hurts. Overall this book was amazing, I'm still trying to catch my breathe from the passion these two shared. I'm almost tempted to go back and read it again that's how good it was. The characters were amazing and you felt so much for them, even if you didn't experience what they experienced you completely sympathize with them and feel connected to each and every character. Even the background characters Luke and Seth both have their own stories that I would love to find out more about.
The cover is beautiful too, it's the perfect picture of them just freeing themselves in the rain like they did in the book. Again this book was breathtakingly mind blowing. I don't know if it's just me but I can even feel the intensity from just looking at the cover. My hear breaks for all the characters. Is it February 2014 yet?
