The Redemption of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #2)
Good Reads Summary
The Redemption of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

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.(less)


My Thoughts
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Am I remembering the awesomeness of the first book wrong?

Because this sequel has a lot of what I’ve come to dislike in NA… namely, The Drama. Granted, the first one also had that but in that one it was offset by two characters that made sense despite both their dark pasts. The degree of drama here though was almost too much. If you’ve read this author’s Micha and Ella books, the pair here read almost exactly like the pair in that one. Only, reversed with the guy here taking on Ella’s role and the girl here acting a little bit like both Micha and Ella.

I loved the first book despite both their drama because they were living anyway. Yet, it seems my memory’s played a trick on me  because despite the identity in their names, these aren’t Callie and Kayden I was looking forward to!

This isn’t the book I was looking forward to: too much drama made worse by the too many instances of one or the other running away because one or the other had done something a stupid/selfish/selflessless thing.

Blegh.
