"I can't do this without you." ~ Callie "….fear owned me." ~ Callie
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 anticipation; it may even have made me love the book a whole lot more in the end. The story is told beautifully from the POV of both Callie and Kayden, some of the action is repeated from both perspectives which worked perfectly in my opinion.♥ So, why is this book so amazing.....?
Callie & Kayden, two beautiful people who have led less than beautiful lives for reasons completely out of their control. The harrowing subject matter in both their cases is traumatic but dealt with so sensitively by the author. You feel their pain, their anguish, their helplessness......what was going to happen?
I had absolutely no clue, but I was rooting for their happy ever after, their redemption, their justice.....
In different ways their family, who are meant to be their protectors, have let them down in a big way. Callie's family are not the perpetrators but the signs are there...she didn't feel able to talk to them; so very sad. Kayden's family, well all I can say is, there's evil in his house.....
They both face desperate situations. Broken does not even come close to explaining....it's poignant, heart breaking
....how could anyone survive but people do....inner strength is an amazing thing.
My heart hurt reading this book, even when the characters are happy together they have so much pain trapped inside, and there are elements in their lives that are so damaged, you wonder how they can EVER
be truly happy....?
They both have to face their fears, release their stories, their secrets.....let people help them, maybe then
they can start to heal.
We see the characters grow and mature, individually and together, again the subtlety of the writing is amazing, nothing is over played...it's perfect and always true to the characters that have been amazingly developed by this talented author.
They understand each other’s pain, they don't always know this because they both keep things hidden......they come to understand.....they become the person to each other that knows everything....sex helps both of them release their pain, it's something positive they are able to do for each other.
"I love you." 3 little words; so hard for them to say but happily they both manage it by the end of this book.
"….with him, everything inside me has changed and my heart and soul aren't so shadowed anymore. ~ Callie
"She owns me completely, uncontrollably, irreversibly."
Yes there are unanswered questions, you will know them when you read the book, but I have faith. I anticipate all my wonderings will be addressed in the author’s unique beautiful, subtle, thought provoking style in, [b:The Resolution of Callie and Kayden|18166143|The Resolution of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #3.5)|Jessica Sorensen|/assets/nocover/60x80.png|25531682].
