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 . . .
OH MY GOD! Why? Why do I keep being taken by surprise? I hate this. The same was with The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden. I wasn’t expecting the book to end. Like, AT ALL. Jesus!
This is another great book by Jessica Sorensen. The story is pretty good, even though Violet and Luke were very irritating at times. Their need to be alone because they feel that’s the only way they can get through whatever they’ve been going through their whole life is infuriating.
The Destiny Of Violet & Luke introduces you to two characters we’ve already met on the previous books of The Coincidence. Luke, Kayden’s best friend, and Violet, Callie’s room mate. Here, we get to know both characters better, why they act like they do, what are their reasons to be such loners all the time and why they treat people and themselves the way they do.
Violet is an adrenaline junkie. She’s been living her life jumping from one foster home to another after losing her parents. She’s been through a lot. A lot of abuse from different foster parents, who’ve always made her feel like no one wants her. So she’s created a wall around herself, which is meant to protect her from the world. She knows how to take care of herself. She knows and prefers to be by herself.
Luke.. He’s the quiet but intense guy of the group. He has his own baggage, his own past which is always trying to catch up with him, no matter how hard he tries to outrun it. He has his system though, his things he goes to whenever the past gets close. Alcohol and girls. This is how he gets away from everything his mother out him through when he was just a child.
They both have issues but somehow, when they cross paths, it’s like they’re meant to be together. Each calms the other without even trying to. Since I’ve known Luke from previous books I felt like I could relate more to him. Besides, Violet was always so mean, with Luke and everyone around her. Of course, I understand why she’s that way, but still, she was mean even when she didn’t have to be.
I liked the story, it’s well pace, entertaining and interesting. Both characters grow with the story. They have to face some hard situations and learn whatever they can from them, and feelings they haven’t felt in their life, so their kind of terrifying. But they still let themselves feel whatever they’re feeling towards the other.
There were some typos that were distracting, but overall, yeah it was good. I still Callie and Kayden better though.

Well! That was intense and some! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t extremely intrigued by Luke in The Callie and Kayden book. I was sooo pumped when I found out he was getting his own book!
Now that I’ve read it, I’m totally like “hmmm…didn’t expect that, now did ya?”(to myself. I talk to myself a lot.) I loved the fact that I felt like this was a book all on it’s own. I mean, of course the other characters are mentioned but this is definitely Luke and Violet’s book. You get to know a VERY different side of both characters that you didn’t see in the Callie and Kayden books.
To say it was angst filled would be an understatement. These are are just so….MUCH! Jessica Sorensen is NOT skimpy on the drama (I love that). I would definitely recommend this. I looooove this series <3
Oh and I’m totally pro Seth and Greyson getting their own book!! Pleeeeeease??!!!!
