There are those who don’t get luck handed to them on a shiny platter, who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, who don’t get saved.
Luck was not on Callie’s side the day of her twelfth birthday when everything was stolen from her. After it’s all over, she locks up her feelings and vows never to tell anyone what happened. Six years later her painful past consumes her life and most days it’s a struggle just to breathe.
For as long as Kayden can remember, suffering in silence was the only way to survive life. As long as he did what he was told, everything was okay. One night, after making a terrible mistake, it seems like his life might be over. Luck was on his side, though, when Callie coincidentally is in the right place at the right time and saves him.
Now he can’t stop thinking about the girl he saw at school, but never really knew. When he ends up at the same college as Callie, he does everything he can to try to get to know her. But Callie is reserved and closed off. The more he tries to be part of her life, the more he realizes Callie might need to be saved.

Okay, first I have to warn my readers to pay attention to the warning! This had a lot of cussing in it and while I am not a big fan of that, it didn’t really take away from the storyline itself (which is always a great thing). With that, I know I am late on the fan bandwagon for Jessica Sorenson, but better late than never, right?
This whole story just rocked my socks off! I read it within 24 hours because I just could NOT put it down. Callie is beautiful in every way and you just want to throw your arms around her and be her shield from anything bad that might happen to her!
And you want to do the same to Kayden because he’s had to grow up so freaking fast , and it’s not fair. You want life to just float by easy for these two YAs, but their tough stories make them who they are. This book is amazing and besides the cussing, it is now one of my all time favorites!!
