Review: The Destiny of Violet & Luke by Jessica Sorensen


The Destiny of Violet & Luke

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 . . .




I am a huge fan of the Coincidence series and its main players, Callie and Kayden. I also liked both Luke and Violet so I was excited for this book. It's focuses on Luke Price the troubled football player and Violet Hayes the extremely rude yet super quiet girl with just as troubled of a past.

WHOA. Ms. Sorensen has a way about her writing that rips at your heart as you read about the hardships the characters need to endure, but this book took that to a whole new level. I literally cried for Violet during her flashbacks. And during Luke's I wanted to hug him.

The fact that these two are both dark and aren't looking at each other romantically within the first 30 pages was refreshing. There is no quick head over heels (HA, well sort of, out of a window as you'll see) love here. I also love that Violet knows she's 'hot'. Whether she flaunted it or not, was beside the point. I am over the main female character always being beautiful but "she never sees it". So thanks, Ms. Sorensen!

Luke was a bigger part of the first two books than Violet so I'm glad his friends Callie, Kayden, Seth, and Greyson make some appearances; especially Seth, LOVE HIM! My biggest letdown was I saw the big twist WAY before I should have, so a big part of finishing the book was waiting for them to figure it out. Other than that, bring on Book #2!

RATING 4.5 STARS FAVORITE LINE:"Even though the odds are in my favor, doesn’t mean they’ll end up that way. First rule of cards. And of life." -Violet
