There are a few things you can be fairly certain of when you read a book by Jessica Sorensen. There will be broken or damaged characters, the writing will be amazing, and there is a pretty good chance there will be a brutal cliffhanger. All three of those things happen to be true about The Destiny of Violet & Luke.

Luke is best friends with Kayden Owens. From previous books, we know that Luke’s mom has issues, his sister killed herself at sixteen, and Luke cop

He uses meaningless relationships as a distraction and a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He secretly wishes that one day he could find that one perfect person, but deep down he doesn't believe that perfection really exists.

4 emotionally draining stars!

What I expect whenever I read a Jessica Sorensen book:

1. Intensity
2. Imperfectly perfect characters
3. Twists I never see coming
4. Cliffhangers

This book took depressing to a whole new level. I think this is the first time I've read a NA book with both characters having SO MUCH baggage. There's no doubt that Jessica Sorensen can write a great book, but be prepared to have your happy mood crushed. There aren't any butterflies and unicorns here.

It's been a long time since I've read the first two books in this series. I knew going in that this was going to be sad but I didn't realize it was going to end leaving me hanging. Thank goodness the next book is out!

Violet and Luke are both loners. They both have had a very messed up childhood. They both have very different ways that they cope with their feelings but yet they both kind of deal the same way.

Wow, this is such an emotional read, and it all just came crashing down at the end. This review will be short, because I have to jump into the sequel to see what happens next.

We saw glimpses of Luke in Kayden and Callie story, he is Kayden’s best friend. I have loved Luke from the beginning, he is understanding, sarcastic, and accepting. After reading Luke’s backstory it is completely understanding why Luke is so accepting of other people. Abandon by his father at a young age, h

Violet and Luke get the most miserable couple award!

This was one of the most depressing books I have read. Not because of their circumstances but because of their draining dual pov. Usually a book will have one positive person or funny or something. Luke is an alcoholic/man whore and Violet is an adrenaline junkie/drug dealer both struggling with events from their past.

Slowly these two become closer, breaking down each other’s walls but honestly the happy was about 5% of the story.

4 depressing stars!

This book took a lot out of me. This is one of the most depressing book I've come across considering that both main characters are barely 20 years old and they're already carrying loads of baggage.

Luke and Violet both suffered very traumatic events in their childhood that rendered them incapable of forming healthy relationships. They met and despite their reservations, became friends and then lovers, for lack of a better world. Their relationship wasn't an easy nor a conventi

"Every movement, every breath, the way my heart beats fiercely in my chest, is all because of her."

Violet and Luke both have traumatic pasts. Using alcohol, sex, adrenaline and violence, to cope with the nightmares they endure. Keeping everyone at a distance, never letting anyone too close. Violet and Luke meet and although they fight it, start to care about one another. But the secrets they are running from are not far behind. Will they be able to survive the truth?

I just read that book in one day so obviously this is a quick read. None the less, it was really good.

At the start of this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. Luke had been one of the minor characters who was always understanding which is why all of us readers knew that he, too, had a rough past. Violet was mentioned only a few times which was intriguing since I never really knew why Ms. Sorensen made a big deal of pointing her out. I didn't expect each other life stories, but they weren't a let
Kelli C way in hell is that the end! what a complete Bomb drop..explosion then nothing! I really am speechless...I can't even come up with a good review because there it isn't of thebiggest damn cliffhangers ever!

This is a strange yet intimate dance with Violet and Luke. Both are broken and barely hanging on to what little possessions they have. They have frequent run-ins in which there is flirty banter, almost intimate moments, and friendly actions, each bringing them closer to one

Please be Luke's book! I love him.....almost as much as I love Kayden and that's A LOT!!! I want him to be happy, he deserves it!!! Please, please, please Mrs. Sorensen! :)

YES! YES! YES! YESSSSSSSS! It's Luke's book! YES YES YES YES YES YES YES! I love Luke! Can't wait! CAN'T. WAIT.!!!!!!

Ms. Jessica Sorensen is famous for writing novels with characters with horrible pasts but turning into great people.

Ms. Jessica never disappoints.

I guess it is right to write something like The Destiny of Violet and Luke. I find it really raw and realistic. While reading this, it's like I'm on the actual scene and I'm with them witnessing everything.

This review may contain SPOILERS!
Starting off with the third book of this series and I was really looking forward to this. Violet and Luke seemed mysterious in the previous books and reading their story I can see why. Reading about Violet and Luke was weird at first, cause Callie and Kayden had such a sweet and rather innocent tone to their relationship (don't get me wrong, they had their problems as well), while Luke and Violet's was filled with rage and hatred and a lot of misunderstandings in

Jessica Sorensen is one of the best authors I have discovered this year. Each one of her books has had me feeling so many different emotions, from happiness, to angst, to hatred and to shock. One thing that you are guaranteed when you pick up a Jessica Sorensen book is a whirlwind of emotion. You cannot read one of her books and feel stoic about it. Sorensen pulls emotions from her readers and that takes a lot of talent, I think, in a writer.

Luke Price has always been a little misunderstood.

Recommends it for: Fans of Angsty Romances.

Both Violet and Luke have more baggage than Louis Vuitton.

Violet has been shipped from foster home to foster home never finding a solid place to land. Luke has struggled to deal with his drug addicted mother who suffers from paranoia.

They both have decided that relationships are not in the cards for them. Letting people get close can only lead to getting hurt.

Both feel incredibly broken in their own way.

When they find each other, Luke discovers that he is curious about a girl for the first time

Yes, I am a fan of Sorensen because I feel she brings to life some of the most wonderfully broken characters whose stories affect me deeply. But seriously I should know better by now. It never fails that I am wanting to chuck my Ipad across the room when I hit the cliffhanger ending. Perhaps since I just finished reading The Ever After of Ella and Micha and since I thought of this as a shoot off like Lila and Ethan's book, I didn't expect the gut wrenching feelings I

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

Ok so first I will say it took me a bit to finish this book, the writing was good story flowed well, but I had a hard time liking the two main characters Violet and Luke together.

Jessica Sorensen gives us readers stories that are wonderful, loving, and at the same time heart wrenching and most of the time I can't put the book down. She is a 5 star rated author.

There are just too many problems for me to comprehend, I get tired and frustrated with both of them, like Jesus, get a hold of yourself, fix your problems and move on!!!.
But then again, I can't seem to put down the book, and is actually frustrating me... Now to the next one!!!

This was a great read. The writing is amazing. The way Jessica Sorensen writes her broken, damaged characters is very intriguing. This is the start of Violet & Luke's story. Though it was not as good as Callie & Kayden's story, I still really enjoyed this one. There were some moments where I thought the story got a bit repetitive. However, it did not take away my enjoyment from this book.

Jessica Sorensen is an author plenty of people talked about last year. She has tousands upon thousands of ratings and reviews on Goodreads and Amazon and she is one of the leading ladies of New Adult fiction. Since I truly enjoyed reading about Lila and Ethan (my review can be found here; I wanted to link it to prove that I did, in fact, enjoy it thoroughly), I decided to give Violet and Luke a try as well.

4 broken stars.

There are a few things that I have come to love about Jessica Sorensen’s writing. Her ability to create broken characters that not only capture your heart, but can break it just as easily. The way she gives you pure imperfection, there may be hope for a happily ever after, for the lost being found, but these characters are not without flaws. We’ve met Luke & Violet during Callie & Kayden’s journey. We’ve just never gotten to know them before, until now.

The Destiny of Violet & Luke is book three in The Coincidence series by Jessica Sorensen. No one can write dark and damaged better than Jessica Sorensen and she hasn’t let us down in this book.

Violet is Callie’s roommate at college from the first two books. Violet’s parents were violently murdered the night before her sixth birthday. The murders were never solved. Violet was shuffled from one foster family to another and she taught herself to never get attached, to never let anyone in. And ever

Nooooooooooooooo!!! What kind of ending was that?????

This is DEFINITELY, without a doubt, one of Jessica Sorensen's best! I wasn't the biggest fan of Callie & Kayden's story (at least not as much as Ella and Micha), and I wasn't even sure if I was going to read this one because Violet wasn't my favourite character before -- but she proved me wrong. And Luke? I love him so much. They are both two royally screwed up people with awful pasts and a very small chance of a HEA, but I love them anyways

Ohh.... Poor Luke and Violet. It's just so sad. Luke's story was definitely not what I was expecting but it was fantastic! And I definitely didn't see Violet that way. But she is a perfect example of not judging a book by its cover (no pun intended). I just can't wait to read where their story goes next. ...more
