About the Book:
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 Review:
Having quickly grabbed this book from Amazon when others were reading it, it took me some time to actually get it in my reading que. I'm kind of a sad it took me so long. This was an amazing book!

Not knowing what to expect, I quickly delved into the reading and just as quick was done with the book. I thoroughly enjoyed both main characters, Callie and  Kayden. Their story was a roller coaster, but very enjoyable. Not knowing how the two parts of the story were going to hook up, I was pleasantly surprised with the connection.

I also enjoyed the supporting main characters Luke and Seth. What great best friends they were to Kayden and Callie. They definitely played a large roll in the second part of the story. They definitely added a lot of fun, excitement, and support to the story.

The darkness surrounding both Callie and Kayden is what the story is all about. Definitely a love story as well, but much more than that. I'm excited to read the next book of the series, as well as start the author's other book, The Secret of Ella and Micha.

I recommend this book to readers of New Adult, or anyone who has struggled with something in the past and overcome it.
