The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden
by Jessica Sorensen
Series: The Coincidence #1
Publication date: December 13, 2012
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Purchase*: Barnes and Noble/Amazon
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.Last month I shared my review of the Secrets of Ella and Micha and told you how much I loved this author's writing style and her ability to capture the emotions of her characters. This novel confirms it..I am in love with this author! Sorensen breathes such life into her characters. I became completely swept up in Callie and Kayden's individual stories and their bittersweet romance. I laughed, I cried, I drained the batteries on my smart phone and the cliffhanger ending is killing me. Sorensen touches on some really painful subjects, and the harsh reality of it was raw, beautiful and thought provoking. If ever two people deserve to find happiness its these too. The Redemption of Callie and Kayden book two will publish on February 28th and I cannot wait!

Someone to Love
by Addison Moore
Publication date: December 21, 2012
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon
Someone to Love is a light, sexy read that is far more naughty than it ever is nice.This one started out crazy and I thought oh boy...this is going to be naughty. It ended up being a very sweet romance, with characters who were complex and endearing. I quickly became invested in both Kendall and Cruise once the layers were peeled back. This was fun, and at times very hot! I hated Blair, Cruise's ex and "off with her head" crossed my mind several times. If you love flawed, wounded characters who believe love is only found in fairy-tales then this romance will delight you. Moore brought these characters to life and the tale flowed wonderfully. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
What happens when two people who don’t believe in love, happen to fall madly into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck. When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers clear across country to Garrison University, the last thing she’s looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what, gorgeous, Cruise Elton offers. Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion that never lasts, and Cruise couldn’t agree more—but something deep inside her wants him all for herself. So, Kendall devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player” and proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison University’s own playboy. Real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them. Everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover, in one another, Someone to Love.
