So, I'm not gonna do a big review yet, but I will say it's worth the wait. I loved this book! I loved Kayden Owens and his amazing heart! I loved Callie and her will not to give up where Kayden's concerned. They're truly a beautiful couple together. They're strong and flawed but their imperfections make them real and I loved it. I lalalalala-LOVE Luke. He's such a badass and just awesome! Seth is also an incredible character and friend. I really loved this continuation of Callie and Kayden.

‘I’m looking into his eyes and he’s looking into mine and I wonder if maybe it wasn’t coincidence that brought me to him that night in front of the pool house. Maybe it was fate that guided me there so I could save him and he could save me and then it could lead us here to this moment where we are both completely content and free and glad we’re alive.’

In ‘The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden’, Callie Lawrence was saved by Kayden Owens. Now Kayden may be the one who needs saving...

It’s been 7 months and 14 days since I’ve read ‘The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden’. It was easily one of my favorite books of 2012. And we all know it had one helluva cliffhanger! Well, it was worth the wait! I thought the sequel was fantastic. And it picked up right where the first book left off...

You need to walk away from me. PLEASE, walk away.

I’ve waited months for this book and in the end of reading it the only thing I have to say is: Totally worth the wait!!


“I wish for happiness in a world full of sorrow. “

After that horrible and crazy cliffhanger in the end of the first book, things aren’t looking pretty for Callie and Kayden.
She doesn’t know how to help him and can’t even see him which doesn’t help with her own problems that seem to aggravate during the time Kayden’s closed in a mental facility.

I feel like I say this about every Jessica Sorensen book I read but I swear this woman puts me through a gamut of emotions. Redemption of Callie & Kayden was one of my most anticipated sequels of 2013 and I don't even know if I can grasp everything that happened or begin to explain to you how I felt. My thoughts and feelings are in a complete cluster f*ck right now. I cant even.

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden was a brilliant sequel to their story!

The story picks up right at the horrible ending of The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden and took me on a journey of healing and love. Kayden is so broken when we first see him again and Callie is in a turmoil over what happened. These two are the perfect combination and when one is lacking strength and conviction the other steps in to bolster their resolve, confidence and courage. This romance was one of my favorites to d

I finished this book weeks ago and I rated it 5 stars. Why? because it's simply beautiful!

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden is way too intense, touching, and emotional compared to the first book The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden. There is so much to love in this sequel. I really feel the emotions when both Ka

After reading the first book in the series, The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this installment. The cliffhanger left me stunned. I was reeling from shock. And I was literally choked up. Jessica Sorenson delivers another emotional story that left me satisfied… but with mixed feelings.

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden picks up where book one left off. Kayden is in the hospital after his abusive father stabbed him. Kayden is trying to recover from the trauma

After reading the Coincidence of Callie and Kayden for the first time in February, I was left reeling from the cliff hanger...aghhh!!! How could the author be so crawl and finish the book at, what felt like, the middle of a chapter? I was even a little angry, not like me at all!!!

Then along comes the sequel, The Redemption of Callie & Kayden and all is right in my book world again. It was so worth the wait, the anticipa

I was going back and forth trying to decide whether to give this book a 4 or 5. I've decided on 5 but really thinking it as:


The second installment of the The Coincidence series started after the major cliffhanger at the end of The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden where Kayden was so broken and Callie devastated from seeing him like that. Kayden is charged for battery and realizes that the only way to get out of it is for Callie to tell what had happened. Instead of making her do that

I don't know...I feel kind of let down. After waiting almost two years to finally pick up this book up, I was expecting...more.

I don't know what it is with this author and always trying to milk a damn story. It can never be just two books. Everything ended but it ended in a weird place. Things are still up in the air, which she obviously did on purpose so now she can write another two books about them. I don't feel like there needs to be another book on them, this book should have bee

There is something about this story that makes it perfect for me, one of my favourites. I don't really know how to express it, it's simply that all this suffering and injustice clashes with an incredible beauty and creates a perfect mix that I don't wanna stop reading.
Witnessing how these characters, especially Kayden and Callie, survive, learn and love is amazing.

Jessica Sorensen has a way with words and creates amazing characters. She seems to have trouble following up amazing books though.

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden was not as terrible as The Forever of Ella and MIcah. But it wasn't all that either. Considering where we left off from the first book (which was incredible btw), this sequel seemed so anti-climactic. It felt like it just sputtered and never really had a life of its own.

Please hurry. I am not good in dealing with angst. I need to know what is happening! Please also write a story about Luke and Seth? They each deserve to have their own stories. They are both such powerful characters!

Update: A-frickin-mazing! So good, but holy hell can we say cliff hanger! I hope Caleb's butt roasts and Kaydens dad gets what's coming to him! Being on book 3!

Come on, out with it! I will seriously lose interest in about a week and forget all about the Coincidence, which was on par with Twilight (my fave ever), and then i wont remember for five years and that would suck. So either put it out or give us a real date or just put out another teaser that says he died so I can move on with my life already, thank you.
