*REVIEW* The Destiny Of Violet & Luke by Jessica Sorensen

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 4 Stars

Violet and Luke both have bad pasts, Luke was forced to help his mum take drugs and Violet was only a kid when her parents were murdered while she was still in the house. They have both found a way to leave there pasts behind which consists of not getting close to people, drinking and never letting themselves feel anything but that's about to change when they meet. Both characters are messed up pretty bad when they meet and i loved that they could open up to each other about their experiences. It does take a while for them too but just feeling something for someone else is a big step for both of them. There is a really big twist in the story that just made me gasp! Was a little disappointed when it ended but i'm so glad that their story continues and i can't wait to find out what happens when the book is released. When i first started reading it, i actually couldn't see how Luke and Violet could make anything work with the way they argued and the way they keep their emotions to themselves but it's a fantastic book to read and left me wanting more.

Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. He uses meaningless relationships as a distraction and a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He secretly wishes that one day he could find that one perfect person, but deep down he doesn't believe that perfection really exists. 

Violet Hayes has had a rough life, surrounded by drugs, neglect, and irresponsible parents. She thought she could escape that kind of life when she went to college, but her past catches up with her. To protect herself from getting hurt, she acts tough and keeps her distance from everyone. But then she meets Luke. The two of them clash, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. The more they get to know one another, the more they realise just how similar their lives are, and that maybe the perfection they've always been looking for lies in each other.
