The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

This is not a full review since I read The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen way back in December 2012 and it is not completely fresh in my mind. However since book 2, The Redemption of Callie & Kayden is being released today, I felt it necessary to tell you that if you haven't read this book yet, then you must. Like, right now. No really. NOW. Whatever is next on your list, bump it down and put this at the very top. And if you have already read it then:

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee The Redemption of Callie & Kayden is available today!

I feel like I have been waiting for forever for this book. Forever is more like 7 months, but damn that is a long time too.

So Callie and Kayden grew up in the same town, went to the same schools but never really interacted. Except for one night. The night of "The Coincidence". Now they are at the same college and are exploring a new friendship and maybe even more. But these two teenagers are completely and utterly broken inside. Their disastrous childhoods have shaped who they are and made it hard for them to even just feel. Can they push past the years of pain and find friendship, love and happiness with each other?

This story is so deeply emotional and it rocked me to my core. This is one of those books where you better clear your calendar for the next 24 hours because you will not be able to put it down until it is done. It is well worth the book hangover you will have, trust me. And be aware that there is the mother of all cliffhangers at the end which will probably leave you screaming. But not to fear, you can move right on to the next book. OK, so you better clear 48 hours then.

Book Description: 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.
