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.
Callie and Kayden have a lot of issues, each of them have had some really bad things happen to them. So when they finally get the opportunity to see each other at their worst it starts to build a connection between them. They both start to have feelings for the other but they are also terrified of these feelings. This book was well written and had wonderful characters. For a short read it was good but not great. I felt there was something missing for it to be a “great” book and not just okay or good. Otherwise it is a good book with a cliffhanger ending.
