I am already a big fan of Jessica Sorenson and I’ve enjoyed following Callie and Kayden on their journey, so I was very eager to join back up with them.

The dark secret that Kayden had been hiding for years is now out, and to make things worse he is now facing changes for battery. And the only way to clear his name is for Callie to speak out, something that he will never ask her to do. Kayden is determined to protect Callie, whatever the cost. Callie desperately wants to save Kayden, but that would mean sharing her own painful secrets out loud, and the thought of that terrifies her, but not as much as the thought of losing Kayden…

I really enjoyed this, it was fantastic to be back in the lives of Callie and Kayden. The story was so easy to get into, as I had enjoyed the previous book I had already connected with the characters and so for me it was like being reunited with a group of friends again.

One of the things that I love about both Callie and Kayden is that they are SO lifelike. They are both strikingly real people with real relatable stories, and full of such raw emotions and feelings. I became really swept up in their lives and the situations they found themselves in. Jessicas’s writing is so good that I can feel the emotion and the feeling radiating from the pages. I could feel the pain, and the sadness, but I could also feel the intense passion and emotion that Callie and Kayden have for each other. I was hooked to the chapters and I raced through the book because I so desperately wanted to know what would happen as they had both been through so much, and I genuinely cared about what happened to them.

I don’t want to spoil what is a fantastic story bit let me tell you it will have you gripped, it will grab your heart and it will have you feeling very personally involved in the characters lives. The Redemption of Callie and Kayden is a book not to be missed!

I've been waiting for what feels forever for this book and omg it didn't disappoint. It was another tough one to read with all the pain they went through and are still struggling to cope with. It had me in tears on many occasion but I couldn't put it down it had me gripped. I'm really happy that they both start to feel that they can begin to move forward with there healing and I just hope that they will finally be able to look forward to a future together. The author has wrote this series really well it's like your there feeling the pain and wishing them both happiness, I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. Mich burr

Such a shame as I love the characters, storyline and author and was just a bit disappointed at how it ended, it felt like there was more to finish, if another book comes out then I will feel a lot better about it all. I know Luke's story is coming up but I really want more Callie and Kayden.

After all the drama of the first book in this series (The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden) I was hoping that there would be some kind of resolution in this book... and there was. It just wasn't what I was expecting.
In fact, it really annoyed me!
If you read my review of book 1 you will see that I was really frustrated with the pacing of the book and that it felt like forever before anything really happened. Towards the end of book the pace picked up and I felt like we were getting somewhere and then bam!
The cliffhanger ending.
I knew things would be difficult in this book for Callie and Kayden after that ending but I just didn't expect it to be as difficult as it was.
It truly felt like for every 3 steps forward Callie and Kayden had made (in book 1) they took 2 steps back in this one...
It felt like they hadn't went back to how they were in the beginning of their relationship but for progress to occur they had to retake everything they lost between the end of book 1 and the mid-way point of this one and then they could move forward again.
Does that make sense?
By the end of the book they were getting help for their individual issues - and that's good - but there wasn't really a happy ever after type ending for them, which I so desperately wanted.

It was also infuriating that the "bad guys" in all this just seemed to get off with all the bad things they had done! Where is the justice? Yes, by the end of the book Callie and Kayden are moving on, they're doing really well, the axe is swinging for the wrong-doers but it doesn't remove the fact that there is no firm resolution.

I guess that's why there is going to be a novella titled The Resolution of Callie and Kayden. Perhaps between that book and Luke's up and coming story I'll see the justice and resolution I crave for this couple who I fell in love with.

I still recommend these books to New Adult fans who like a good dose of angst in their books but I have to say that I'm doubting that The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden and this offering The Redemption of Callie and Kayden are going to be books I'll re-read... While I like them, they aren't making my favourites list.

Another great book from the author Jessica Sorenson. I have enjoyed all her books so far and this doesn't disappoint! Characters are likable and not so depending on their role, you can't help but get involved in the story

Well where to I start with how absolutely amazing this book is? I actually think this has ruined me for any other book....

I felt so emotionally involved with both Callie & Kayden, the way it is written I'm going through all this pain with them and I actually cried whilst reading. I just really enjoyed reading about Callie and her thoughts, fears and bravery as she built herself up to be stronger so she could save herself and Kayden. I love how her family rallied round her in the end and gave their full support, I love the connection between Callie & Kayden and how they have helped and fully supported each other.

Seth is just brilliant, he really gets Callie and pushes her when he needs to but more importantly he makes her laugh again and gives her strength when she needs it. Luke is quite and I'm looking forward to his story so I can read more about what is going on with him but even the way he supports his friends is commendable.

I just loved everything about this book, although we have another cliffhanger ending, grrr when is the next coming out I need to keep the story going!!!

Seriously people if you haven't read The Coincidence or Redemption of Callie & Kayden what are you waiting for go get it now, it's intense, sad, exciting, feel good, emotional writing & reading at it's best!!!

It feels like I have waited a life time for this book to be released! I read The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden back in February and I don’t think I ever stopped thinking about how the story would end, not many books haunt me but reading about Callie & Kayden’s horrific life’s give me chills!

I was so glad with the direction this book took not just because I am a sucker for a happily ever after because that isn’t necessary what they get but I feel they went through many battles and came out the other side, only the future books will tell if they can ever move past their history but I can’t wait to read the upcoming instalment to this series.

Blurb:
The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is out. Worse, he's facing charges for battery. The only way he stands a chance against the charges is if Callie speaks up, something he'll never ask her to do.

Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But saving him means admitting her secrets aloud. Callie and Kayden are stronger than they think, especially when they're together. Together they move forward, face their demons, and finally start to heal from their traumatic pasts

I loved this book just as much as the first but I just want MORE!!!!
I love Callie and Kaydens story and it was just one that you don't want to end, so I was delight when I noticed on here that there will be a novella after Luke's story!!! YAY Luke has his own story but also YAY because that means that although only in the background, Callie and Kayden will still be in my life!!! I am so glad I went back through my books and read these stories because I can honestly say they have touched my heart.
Life is not always simple and as we all know there is rarely a simple/easy fix to things and that is just one of the things I love about this journey you take with C and K. There lives have been hard as we know from the first book. In fact I don't think hard sums it up HORRENDOUS is probably more apt. But this book was about living fighting and loving when they may be the hardest things to do. Jessica Sorenson has very quickly shimmied her way into my favourite author category and I don't think she will be going anywhere soon. I think Ella and Micha may be next on list whilst waiting for Luke.

p.s I really reaaallly reaaaaalllllyyy hope Seth gets a book!! ;)

I loved The first book called The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden and was really looking forward to this second book as it had so much potential for more but gave less which was very disappointing. Don't get me wrong it still had all the same tension and passion as the first book but it ended so abruptly that I thought I had accidentally skipped chapters with my Kindle! It didn't ease you into the epilogue. One minute I was reading about Kayden meeting up with one of his brothers after not seeing him for years and the next page was the epilogue. So much more could have been written. What happened to Caleb? Where did Kayden's parents go? What happened to his other brothers? There could easily have been a 3rd book to this story where a proper ending could have happened. So as much as I love the writing of Jessica Sorensen, she really disappointed me with this book. I hope this doesn't happen again with any future books I read of hers as otherwise I'm afraid I won't be reading anymore.

This sequel was brilliant! Definitely a 5 + star read for me. I love Callie and Kayden, they are such great characters. I love that the book is written from both their pov's so you get to see how they are both feeling and whats going through their mind. They are both so vulnerable in their own ways and have had so much emotional turmoil in their lives it is so nice to see them finally come to terms with it all and be haply together. Love that we got to see more about Luke in this too and can't wait for his story to come out! I really hope we get more about Callie and Kayden in it too because although it was a happy end for them it seemed to end quite abruptly and there's definitely alot more that i'd love to see happen for them! Mainly because i just don't want to stop reading about them yet!lol I recommend this series so much, Jessica has written a wonderful story about these characters :)
