The Destiny of Violet and Luke Review

Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .

4 Stars

Wow we knew from reading previous books that Lukes home life hadn't been ideal, but I had NO idea exactly how bad it was. Now Violet, damn this girl has been through the ringer, how she has managed to cope with what she saw I will never know, no child should ever have to experience that. And then on top of her past to then be tossed from foster home to foster home, just a ridiculous amount for such a small child to endure.  Violet and Luke was dark, raw and sexy as all hell. I liked Luke through out this whole series but we never really saw how damaged he actually was, and he is SERIOUSLY damaged I won't tell you the extent of it because then you would have no reason to read this one for yourself. What I will tell you is that this is BY FAR my favorite Jessica Sorenson novel to date. 

Oh and the ending..... I think it may have broken me a little bit.
