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

There are those who don’t get luck handed to them on a shiny platter, who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, who don’t get saved.

Luck was not on Callie’s side the day of her twelfth birthday when everything was stolen from her. After it’s all over, she locks up her feelings and vows never to tell anyone what happened. Six years later her painful past consumes her life and most days it’s a struggle just to breathe.

For as long as Kayden can remember, suffering in silence was the only way to survive life. As long as he did what he was told, everything was okay. One night, after making a terrible mistake, it seems like his life might be over. Luck was on his side, though, when Callie coincidentally is in the right place at the right time and saves him.

Now he can’t stop thinking about the girl he saw at school, but never really knew. When he ends up at the same college as Callie, he does everything he can to try to get to know her. But Callie is reserved and closed off. The more he tries to be part of her life, the more he realizes Callie might need to be saved.

My Splurge and Random Quotes I Love 

 “It’s amazing how the things you remember forever are the things you’d rather forget and the things you desperately want to grasp onto seem to slip away like sand in the wind.”

Resumes (semi) normal review….

“The corners of his lips tug up into a sad smile. “I can handle scars, especially ones that are on the outside.”  

 Callie and Kayden are both broken, shattered by people who are supposed to love them are at least tolerate them. They both are reaching their breaking point. Callie is the weird girl. She was fine until her 12th birthday….then she changed and no one knows why. When she goes off to college she meets Seth(LOVE HIM) He’s broken also. They heal each other. She was raped and he was beaten by his boyfriend and his football player ‘friends.’ 

“That’s you. Callie, you’re the only person that’s ever made me feel happy about anything. That night you saved me, you changed something in me—you made me want to live.”

Kayden goes off later to the same college that she does and then THE STARS FREAKIN ALIGN!!!! YESSS!!! 



 
“I take my time because I love how it feels to carry her, the way she needs me, the way I need to protect her.”

Callie has a thing for helping people-Seth, Kayden, Luke(Kayden’s best friend) but she never does it consciously. She’s a good person. She has an inner strengh I love. She thinks of herself as weak but she’s stronger than them all-especially Kayden. KAYDEN WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?! Okay I know why but that’s not a very good thing to do…..


“No. I just never wanted to throw them away. Even if they were broken. I still loved them.”

Kayden hides his secret life of constant beatings from his father at home. He hides from prying eyes. Callie saves him from being beaten to death by his father. He’s so scared and vulnerable for that one moment in time. She’s so diligent in the task for caring for him…..I liked it because it showed how he finally felt safe. Safe with her.
 

 “I’ve never felt like this before, with anyone. It’s against the rules of surviving.”

Everybody has a story…


 

 “That’s you. Callie, you’re the only person that’s ever made me feel happy about anything. That night you saved me, you changed something in me—you made me want to live.”

The Cliff-hanger in this book made me wanna cry and throw my Kindle against the wall. Hard. And possibly break it…but I didn’t cuz I love my Kindle.

 Soo Darling…. As you can see, I adore this book and fail to find a single thing wrong with it….which is rare for me. I’m a picky person. But, luck you(and me)this is only the first one in the series! Sad for you(and me) we are being told we have to wait until the END OF FEBRUARY to get it. Pooh. -_-

I suggest you stalk the author. She’s on blogger to! Find her HERE
