The Certainty of Violet & Luke (The Coincidence #5) by Jessica Sorensen

Violet Hayes’s life is a mess. Between her stalker, Preston, refusing to leave her alone, her parents’ case still being unsolved, and falling behind in school, she always feels on the verge of losing it. When some unexpected news comes her way, it’s the final straw and she ends up doing something that almost costs her life. Thankfully, she survives and makes a promise to herself to put her life back together and to try and figure out exactly how she feels about Luke Price, the one person that’s always there for her.

But as a recovering alcoholic and gambler, Luke has his own struggles to overcome. He’s also fallen in love with Violet, but fears telling her the truth, that it will scare her away or worse, she won’t reciprocate the feeling. Plus, there never seems to be a right time to say it, either the case, Preston, or life getting in the way.

Can the two of them ever get enough peace in their lives to conquer their fears and finally tell each other the truth about how they feel?


I have slightly mixed feelings on this one. On one hand, I loved it. I have been rooting for Violet and Luke as a couple since their first book, The Destiny of Violet & Luke. I enjoyed watching them get over the last of their personal and relationship hurtles, and finally find the happy ending that they so deserve. However, I was also slightly disappointed. After The Probability of Violet & Luke and all of the secrets that were revealed in that part of the story, I was expecting a more drama filled conclusion than what I got. I was dying to know what would happen with Luke's mother and Preston, and the way that Jessica left the story left me anticipating lots of angst and drama. While there was some, I was left wanting more, hence the four star rating. Everything just seemed to tie up neatly too quickly. Nevertheless, I still love these characters and their story, and if you are a fan of the series, this one is worth your time.
