Title: The Probability of Violet & Luke
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Series: The Coincidence #4
Release Date: May 15, 2014
Luke Price and Violet Hayes haven’t seen each other in a couple of months, not since they discovered Luke’s mother’s connection to Violet’s parent’s murders. But when Luke gets into some gambling trouble with the wrong people, destiny decides to throw the two of them together and they head out to Vegas to try and settle Luke’s debt.
As Violet spends time with Luke, she becomes torn on whether she should be with him. She definitely can’t deny that her life is better when she’s with Luke and she starts to wonder if going back to Preston was a mistake.
Things seem to be going well as Violet opens up more to Luke, but then she gets a call from the detective, not only to give an update on Mira Price and the case, but to give information about some threatening texts she’s been getting. The information is not only shocking, but makes Violet question what kind of people her parents really where and whether she’ll be able to trust anyone ever again.
Jessica Sorensen is quickly becoming the queen of cliffhangers. My heart is still racing at the revelations Violet and Luke are faced with at the end of this book. Angst is the one word I would use to describe this story. Violet and Luke are faced with seemingly insurmountable heartbreak and pain as their journey continues in The Probability of Violet & Luke. This book picks up shortly after the last left off, with both of them reeling from the truth life has so cruelly thrown at them. Stuck in their new reality, they are forced to face life on their own while carrying around secrets that will certainly destroy them.
“We’re both abruptly reminded that make believe is just that and doesn’t really exist unless you live in a fairytale.”
Neither are in a good place when this story starts and it makes for a lot of self loathing and destructive behavior. Jessica made their pain tangible. There were times when I swear I could feel the tightness in my chest or the anxiety flowing through me as Luke and Violet faced down their demons. I couldn’t stop reading, waiting for the moment when the sadness would lessen and some relief would seep in. Both characters face an onslaught of emotions that threatens to break them at every turn. The vulnerability, strength and personal growth Jessica orchestrates for Violet and Luke is absolutely beautiful, forcing me to let these characters steal a little more of my heart along the way.
“Through the insanity of my life, Violet is the one sane thing I have, even if our relationship it insane itself.”
The mystery and suspense of the storyline gets kicked up several notches in this book. Just when I thought things couldn’t get more tangled, a new event would throw everything into chaos once again. We finally get a couple answers but in exchange we’re given several more pressing questions that threaten to alter everything Luke and Violet know and love. I’m certain I will be immediately starting the next book because there is no way I can wait to find out where this story is headed. I’m too attached to Violet and Luke and too invested in their happily ever after. The Probability of Violet & Luke told a part of their story that was earth shattering, heart wrenching and undoubtedly thrilling. This is going to be one heck of a book hangover.
