The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence #1) by Jessica Sorensen

5 stars!

Summary via Goodreads:

For Kayden, suffering in silence was the only way to survive. If he was lucky, he could keep his head down, do as he was told, and make it through the day. But one night it seemed like his luck-and his life-might finally end... until an angel named Callie appeared just in time to rescue him.

Callie has never believed in luck. Not since her twelfth birthday when everything was taken from her. After the worst was over, she locked up her feelings and vowed never to tell anyone what happened. Now, six years later, she continues to struggle with the painful secret that threatens to consume her.

When fate lands Kayden and Callie at the same college, Kayden is determined to get to know the beautiful girl who changed his destiny. Quiet and reserved, Callie still fears letting anyone else into her world. But Kayden is certain that Callie has come back into his life for a reason. And the more he tries to be a part of her life, the more he realizes that, this time, it's Callie who needs to be saved...

“In the existence of our lives, there is a single coincidence that brings us together and, for a moment, our hearts beat as one.”

Holy crap, I love this book! The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden is an unforgettable story that had me entranced from the first page! Jessica Sorensen created a heartbreaking tale about how violent life can be and the one in need of saving is often who you’d least expect. 
            Contrary to most books where the girl with the haunted past is saved by the golden boy with everything going for him, The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden demonstrates that, sometimes, it takes two damaged people to save each other. I loved every single aspect of this book! It was surprisingly realistic and the characters were heartbreaking as they strived to overcome their pasts, they worked together and did their best, and didn’t beat their struggles overnight.
            Unfortunately, it ended on a cliff-hanger that has left me desperate to find out what happens next. Right now I am frantically trying to get my hands on the sequel, The Redemption of Callie and Kayden, as fast as possible! The suspense is killing me! I’ll be rooting for Callie and Kayden as they try to escape their violent pasts once and for all in hopes of being able to have a future together.
