The Certainty of Violet & Luke
Nothing can be erased in life. Life is permanent, from the breaths we take to the decisions we make.
Luke & Violet’s journey has been tumultuous, it’s been hard to read at times, emotional and there were points that were just down right depressing. The conclusion and third book of their story still had the heartache and struggles, but it also had hope. Maybe just because one of them was keeping it together, I felt like there was more promise that they would b ...more
The Certainty of Violet and Luke is book five in The Coincidence series by Jessica Sorensen. I have loved this series from the start, both Callie and Kayden’s story and Violet and Luke’s. Each book gets better and better and I think this one is my favorite. Violet and Luke have been through so much. I am in awe that they have survived all that they have been dealt.
First, I want to talk about Luke. Oh my sweet Luke. He is an alcoholic, gambling addict and a diabetic. He finally decides that ...more
This is the final book about Luke and Violet and I expected some riveting scenes as well as one big hea. Sadly, this book fell short for me.
The author spent way to much time having Violet contemplating jumping off buildings than investing in a solid court scene and/or Luke and his mom scene. Tying up this far fetched connection between the two for me left things too quickly solved.
I did however like how Violet finally gets a clue when it comes to Luke...

Violet and Luke have had nothing but heartache and turmoil most of their lives. In the last two books we saw Violet and Luke come together over their troubled past, and then learn that Luke’s mother may be linked to Violet’s parent’s death.
Certainty begins with Luke trying to protect Violet, since she is quickly spiraling out of control.
I feel horrible saying this, but Violet’s behavior in this book exhausted me. I understand she has been through hell and back, but I am not sure how muc ...more
Violet wants to get away from everything and feels like she doesn't know what love is. She is destructive, defensive, and very vulnerable even ...more
Okay, so basically I read this book for an entire month because there was not much happening. The story between Violet and Luke could've been packed into two books instead of these three. There was literally just the conclusion in this book, with all the excitement focusing on Violet getting more in touch with her feelings, which easily could've been integrated into the second novel. I struggled a lot with the beginning of the book, cause the scenes were soo draw ...more
Lovers. I am not even sure how to write this review. I don't know if I can come up the words to accurately describe how I feel about this book- about this series really.
I am a fan of Jessica Sorensen. If you've followed our blog anytime in the last year- you would know that because I have read and reviewed almost everything she has written. And everything has blown me away. Jessica does not skimp on emotion. She forces you to feel EVERYTHING on every page. I mean everything. You...more
“Only when I know she’s fast asleep do I dare whisper the truth. “I would never leave you… Because I love you.”
I was excited to read this book. Violet and Luke's story started very good. But then it wasn't what I expected. The end was sweet and lovely. It's what Luke and Violet deserved it. The rest of the story wasn't that good.
It was sweet and all, especially the ending, but overall, it wasn't my favorite. ...more
UPDATE: I just can't write a whole review of this book. I liked the first Violet & Luke book. I got annoyed on the second Violet & Luke book. I HATED Violet in the third book. All of the problems that seemed solved at the end of the second book resurfaced with a vengeance.
The subplot with Luke's mom didn't feel very resolved. I'm wondering if we're only going to get a resolution t ...more
"I'm ready to go home." Her speech is slurred and tears start dripping out of her eyes. This has happened many times so I know exactly what to do. I scoop her up and carry her out of the house, taking her home just like she asked.
Synopsis: In the conclusion of Luke and Violet's story, things turn on its head for the couple. Luke is ready to commit himself to her, but Violet is afraid. Afraid of Preston, her former foster paren ...more
This was a fantastic read. I really loved every minute of it. The story continues right where fourth book left off. In this book, we see Violet go into the same sort of state that Kayden went through. Not knowing what love is and needing something to take away the pain or to feel hopeless. It was sad to see her vulnerable side. I loved Luke in this book because he showed the more compassionate and understanding side to his character. He has given up drinking and gambling and ha ...more
The fire in my chest simmers down. ‘For what?’
‘For …’ She yawns as she traces a circle on my chest, right over where my heart is beating. ‘For not leaving me.’
My heart clenches in my chest as I smooth her hair back and study her face, the way her eyelids keep fluttering, the way the sunlight hits the studded diamond in her nose, the way her lips are slightly parted. So fucking beautiful and so fucking tough, whether she realizes it or not. Sh ...more
It was just a regular end. I mean we have two souls very particular and similar at the same time. Two souls than challenge every minute but at the same time fight with you.
We have the way to accept feeling instead of jailing it. And we finally have behind the bars people who actually deserve be there.
I have a big crush on Luke, he's my personal mister stoically aloof.
Btw I can understand why Luke is the one to spill it out all first.
And Actuall ...more
This could be the hardest review I've had to write so far. I don't think I've been this disappointed in a book, or series of books before. I enjoyed Violet & Luke's first book, even though the second was different than expected it was ok but the third IMO was a let down. Did the characters grow & end up where they should've? Yes. I did enjoy watching Violet grow & discover things about herself but I felt the third book had so much potential that wasn't expanded upon. The first 30% it ...more
The story is simple. Jessica does not add a lot of fluff to muddle down her stories, rather she lets her characters do the storytelling in their own time frames. We get ...more
I feel like the three book series featuring Violet and Luke in the middle of the Coincidence series was a really quick, but predictable read. I read through all three books in probably about six hours and while they were emotional rides, I wasn’t as invested in the characters as I was with Callie and Kayden. Although, the way each book ended made me jump right into the next one, so I suppose I was at least invested enough to keep going.
This book has the Luke that I liked when h ...more
I think I lost interest in Violet and Luke in the last book, so this one seemed to drag on forever. I tried to read like I usually read (daily), but I made excuses to avoid it. AVOID READING! That's crazy talk.
It's not even that their story was boring or that it was bad, I just lost interest when the falling in love part was done. All that was left was the psychological emotions and the drama. Maybe because I co ...more
I didn't love this like I thought I would but I still liked it. I'm always left feeling emotionally drained when I finish a Sorensen book. I feel like a dementor has come at me and I need chocolate to get myself back right. This book was no different. I needed chocolate throughout the read.
I have many little complaints but I'm not going to list them, they're not that important. However, I have one major complaint. There was too much Violet and not enough Luke. I needed more Luke!
The upside i ...more
