The Redemption of Callie & Kayden

Author: Jessica Sorensen 
Pages: 404 
Publisher: Sphere 
Format: Paperback 
My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads): 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.

My Summary: Callie and Kayden have learned a lot about themselves and each other over the past few months. They've learned each other's secrets and how to deal with their feelings for one another, but they still haven't dealt with their issues. Each would rather fight the other person's demons than confront their own, and it's causing problems that neither one could have anticipated.

Can they deal with their respective pasts and work towards healing, or are they doomed to repeat the past?

My Thoughts: This series was a roller coaster ride of emotions packed into a few hundred pages. Callie and Kayden are the kinds of characters you can't help but root for, and even when things get tough you hope they'll be able to hold on to each other. 

The writing flowed smoothly and the pacing was done well - I never felt like anything was rushed or that scenes dragged on. I was so glad that Callie and Kayden both decided to try to work on their own issues as well as help each other, and I was very satisfied with the way things ended. I can't wait until September to read the next Callie & Kayden!

Final Thoughts: I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys edgier contemporary lit as well as new adult romance.
