The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is finally out. Worse, he's facing charges for battery. The only way to clear his name is for Callie to speak up-something he'll never ask her to do. Instead, he'll do whatever he must to protect her . . . even if it means letting go of the only girl he's ever loved.
Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But that means facing her greatest fear and admitting her own painful secrets aloud. The thought of breaking her silence terrifies her-but not as much as the thought of losing Kayden forever.
Deep in her heart, Callie knows the time has come for her and Kayden to forget the pain of the past. With the help of her friends Seth and Luke she makes a plan to show Kayden the life they could have. But can she convince him they can make a fresh start together-or is she already too late?

* I’m making this a mini review mostly because I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read Coincidence yet, which why haven’t you? Seriously. *
Redemption picks up where Coincidence left off. Kayden has fallen into a dark place and Callie can’t reach him, physically or emotionally. He pushes her away because he doesn’t think he’s good for her. But Callie needs him. With him she feels safe and not lost. She just needs to show him that together they are stronger than they are separately.
I had such anxiety going into Redemption and it didn’t go away when I started reading. If anything I became more anxious. Kayden is so broken that I was worried he wouldn’t be able to put himself back together. He pushed away everyone who loved him, Callie, Luke and even Seth. And Luke, oh how he intrigues me! While he is a supporting character he plays a big part in Kayden’s life. I’m very excited for his story.
But back to Callie and Kayden, it is a very dark book. I do have to say that I think Jessica Sorensen did an excellent job of dealing with the traumatic issues that follow these two people. I liked how Callie and Kayden helped each other through everything. They both had secrets and once they got them in the open they started to heal. Was everything wrapped up in a nice pretty bow? No and I think that’s for the best.
I love Jessica Sorensen’s voice and look forward to maybe seeing more of Callie and Kayden in the future.
“I need the world to stop being such an ugly place full of hurt.” Tears slip out of her eyes. “I need to wake up and really believe everything will be okay instead of just hoping it will be. I want to be one of the lucky ones who has a good life.”
