the destiny of Violet & Luke (The Coincidence #3) by Jessica Sorensen


the destiny of Violet & Luke 
(The Coincidence #3) 
by Jessica Sorensen


Luke Price’s life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents’ unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it’s hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can’t stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can’t seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they’ve never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .


We met Luke and Violet in Callie and Kayden’s stories. We knew a little about Luke, but virtually nothing about Violet, other than she was Callie’s bitchy college roommate. If you thought Callie and Kayden’s story was heartbreaking, prepare to need antidepressants when you read Luke and Violet’s story. Their story is heartbreakingly beautiful.

Both Luke and Violet had horrible childhoods, but for drastically different reasons. They’ve crossed each other’s paths before and never really paid attention. Now they can’t ignore each other, no matter how hard they try. They’re both just trying to survive their shitty lives. Neither has any delusions about where their lives are going, they both know that happiness doesn’t exist for them.

Through their arguments and bantering they find out you can find a place to belong with that last person on earth you would have ever considered. Luke and Violet fill a need in each other. He helps take care of her in a way she has never known. In turn she gives him a reason to try to be a better man.

I loved them, yet I almost dreaded them getting together because if you are familiar with the Coincidence series you know that something is coming to disrupt their happiness. The question is can you make it through their story to get the answer? We’ll have to wait and see because it’s a cliffhanger.
