Destiny of Violet and Luke by Jessica Sorenson Blog Tour and Giveaway


Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does. Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything. Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you...


I get distracted, though, as she lets her head fall to the side and her arms come up and wind around the back of my neck, her movements owning me. I get a glimpse of the back of her neck and the dragon and two stars tattooed on her skin. I haven’t fucked very many girls with tattoos but good God I 
need to start because it’s mind-blowingly sexy. I slide my palms around to the front of her stomach and I crush our bodies together. Heat blares through me as the smell of her blends with the alcohol in my system and it makes the hunger and overpowering need inside me feel like it belongs there.

Her hair is swept over her shoulder and her neck is just inches away from my lips. The desire to suck and bite at her skin is intoxicating and without contemplation over what I’m doing or what it’ll mean, my lips part and my tongue slides out along her skin. It’s not like I’ve never licked a girl’s neck 
before. I have many times, just like I’ve kissed and fucked many times. Usually it drowns out any noise inside my head, but right now I can still hear all of it, if not more. It’s louder. Sharper. More potent and I’m afraid I’m going to lose myself, lose control. But it’s almost like my mouth is being magnetized to her skin and I start sucking on her neck, nipping and grazing my teeth gently along it. With the way her muscles tense, I half expect her to turn around and punch me in the jaw. I sort of wish she would so I’d walk away…at least I think I would…I might actually want to stay more. But instead her head falls to the side, giving me access to devour the taste of her. 

My hand wanders up her ribs, across her breast, her nipple hardening underneath the thin fabric. I graze my thumb across it and then move my hand all the way up to the hollow of her neck. 

She groans as I press my fingers gently into her collarbone and leans back against my chest, putting her weight against me. Reality starts to blur away as I move my hand down her body to her leg and start pulling the fabric of her dress up, desperate to slip my fingers inside her and make her groan louder.

“God, you’re so beautiful…” I breathe against her neck as my hand reaches her upper thigh.

Wow this book is amazing. Would I ever expect anything less from Jessica Sorenson? No. I don't know how she does it but she pulls me right in and feeds me awesomeness in spoonfuls. Every book I read it just continues to show off just how truly talented her writing abilities are. 

When I read Callie and Kayden's stories I wondered about Luke. Who was he? why was he so quiet? Why didn't he like being at his house with his mom? All these questions swirled in my head, I was ecstatic when Jessica said she was releasing a book about Luke. 

Now you may ask did my questions get answered? Hell yeah they did and so much more. I got to see into the life of Callie's roommate Violet. You know the one who never spoke much and left the scarves on the door?  

This book took me inside both the main characters heads. I got to understand both backgrounds and lives. I was transfixed and consumed by this story. 

Violet had a good life until one fateful night everything changed. She was then thrust into a life of loneliness and chaos. This girl learns to survive anyway she can. Her story is sad but she doesn't want anyones pity. She wants to make a life for herself and do better. Then she falls onto Luke, like literally. This is where everything changes.

Luke has always been quiet and does not say much. In this book being in his head I finally understood why. As a child he was exposed to things that no child should. Asked to do things by his mother that is not normal. He just wants to escape her and his past. When Violet falls on him, his whole life changes. For some reason he is drawn to her, wants to know more about her. She is a mystery. Things begin to unfold and when they both end up without a place to live for the summer they decide to live together. This is where it get complicated. Why you ask? because you remember Callie's friend Seth? yeah well Violet and Luke move in with him and Greyson. Talk about awkward. 

Little by little things about Violet's past come out. She pushes Luke further away. Until finally it all comes out and when it does I was in shock. WHAT.THE.HELL? how is that even possible? How did that...wait what? I had to re-read that part a few times. WHAT.THE.HELL!!! and now how are they supposed to move forward from this? How is destiny/fate/the universe this cruel? AAAGGGHHHHHHH and that ending dear Lord Jessica is trying to kill me, I know it. Talk about angst that slowly creeps up! 

This book is just as awesome as Callie and Kayden's stories. Knowing what I know now about Luke I just want to hug him and love him. Poor Violet. That girl has been through so much, I am just hoping nothing bad happens, oh geez that damn ending. I am going crazy thinking of Violet.
