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 be able

Really so the rest of Luke and Violet's story is going to take 2 more books. I have enjoyed reading Jessica Sorensen however it is getting very frustrating to keep reading her books knowing that they are always going to be a series and have cliff hangers, ugh

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 his

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

The Certainty of Violet and Luke is the last book of their story but definitely not the last of the Coincidence series. In these three books, it was very emotional, sometimes disturbing, and occasionally depressing. They also had the good things which each Violet and Luke wanted but had sometimes thought they would never have which was hope, life and love.

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

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

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.

Meh... I was not impressed, even it wasn't a shabby read, it didn't wow me either. It was too dragging and too much rambling on the same old stuff.

It was sweet and all, especially the ending, but overall, it wasn't my favorite.

I am so freaking tired of Violet (and Luke to a lesser extent). Review to come later... once I can stop hating them.

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 reso

Jessica is one of my favorite story tellers. I have a soft spot in my heart for all her characters. Luke is my favorite and I loved this stories progression through each book. Perfect ending for me.
It was ok...

This story was a little drawn out for me. The beginning was slow, the middle was not much better but the end was sweet. In my opinion there was no need for this book. The story could have been wrapped up in the previous book with just a few more chapters.

So thrilled it's over. I do feel like this mini series wasn't good enough. I honestly could have skipped them and went right into book 6.

"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 parent

Actual Rating: 4.5

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

The Certainty of Violet & Luke picks up right where The Probability of Violet & Luke left off. Violet's life is a mess. Preston is stalking her, her parents murder is still unsolved and to top it all off, she's falling behind in school. It's becoming too much and she feels as though she's going to loose it. When the final straw is drawn, Violet almost makes the biggest mistake of all and that mistake ends up being a life altering experience. It puts things into perspective for her and ma ...more

‘Thank you.’ Violet says, pressing a kiss to my chest.
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

So... That was the end of Violet and Luke history.
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.

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 f

So my first thoughts of every review I write for a Jessica Sorensen novel starts the same...I love her! I love her work! Absolutely no book at this point has disappointed me. But I have to tell you, there has just been something about Violet and Luke. I think these are the two most broken characters that Jessica has ever written.

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

My rating of this book is because of my own disinterest, not because of a bad story.

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

For three books I have been wanting to get more of Luke and Violet's relationship. In their final book, I got it. It wasn't pretty, but no part of their relationship has been pretty. They both have temptations to overcome. Violet still needs some work. Thank goodness that Luke has his stuff together in this one. He is the reason that this book was so good. He is the reason that Violet can finally overcome her past. I was going to give this book four stars because I just don't identify with Viole ...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.

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!

This was definitely my favorite of the Violet and Luke books. I loved the epilogue and was glad to have a glimpse of where they'd be in a couple years. On the other hand, I feel like all three of their books could probably have been condensed into one. The other thing I didn't like was how quickly everything was tied up at the end, almost without a climax. I mean everything was building up for three books and then it just ended...

So Callie and Kayden have another book and I'm guessing Caleb com

I loved the first 4 books of this series and read them in a couple of days in the summer. I've been looking forward this one and book 6, that's releasing at the end of the month. I've been wanting the conclusion to both couples story. I wasn't disappointed in the HEA for Luke and Violet. Luke was always there for Violet and supported her so much. Violet grew to trust that Luke was staying and have love. I was very happy with how it played out.

This book is why I saved my five stars!!
I loved everything about it, but especially the epilogue.

The whole book was typically Luke nd Violet.
The humor, the love, the hurt, the angst, and them together.

He turns into a big softie and she's still hardcore, even though she's a big wuss herself!

I loved the epilogue, but I won't spoil it, I think it's lovely how much growing they have done!!
