The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden

(The Coincidence 1)

By: Jessica Sorensen

Release Date: December 13, 2012

Rating: 2.5 stars

Summary: 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.

 

Review: 2.5 stars – Not because of the story itself but because of the WAY it was written. The delivery of the plot development really irritated me.

Kayden Not Remembering Callie: Somehow, I just don’t buy that. (View spoiler on my Goodreads.)

Callie’s Secret: I knew it. (View spoiler on my Goodreads.)

The End: Readers, don’t hate me, but I don’t think there should be a sequel, and I thought that was a really powerful end if Sorensen had smoothed it out a little more. (View spoiler on my Goodreads.)

Overall, it’s not a bad story. The story is pretty good, though not unpredictable. I just wish there were a few things that Sorensen just worked out, at least in my opinion, that would make the story more plausible.
