Teaser #1 from The Redemption of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #2)

Teaser #1 from The Redemption of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #2)


I want to breathe.


I want to feel alive again.


I don’t want to feel the pain.


I want it all back, but it’s gone.


I hear every sound, every laugh, every cry. People move around me frantically, but I can’t take my eyes off the sliding glass doors. There’s a violent storm outside and rain is hammering down against the concrete, dirt, and dry leaves. Sirens flash as ambulances roll up under the port.


My stomach is empty, my heart is hurting, and I can’t move.


“Callie,” Seth says. “Callie, look at me.”


I blink my gaze off the door and stare into his brown eyes filled with worry.


He takes my hand in his, his skin warm and comforting. “He’s going to be okay.”


I stare at him, trying not to cry, because I know I’m stronger than that. “Okay.”


He lets out a slow sigh and pats my hand. “You know what, I’m going to go see if he can have visitors yet.” He gets up from the chair and walks across the packed waiting room to the receptionist desk.


He’ll be alright.


He has to be.


Deep down, I know that’s not true. His wounds and breaks may heal on the outside and cover with scars. On the inside the healing will take longer and I wonder what Kayden will be like when I see him again—who he’ll be.

  17. Okay I'm a litttle confused. I read this book in a day. Let me tell your, I fell inlove with it. So that's not the ending is it? It broke my heart. There WILL be a book 2? And when?

  18. The story broke my heart and that ending...what a cliffhanger. I'm glad you added a teaser to settle down our pounding hearts. Great story and I am anxiously waiting for Callie and Kayden's next story.

  19. I really liked both Callie and Kaden. Each have their own individual private issues, both struggling to overcome them separately and alone. Love Seth! Grabbed me from the first page and...BEST ending ever! It makes me want to read the next book SO much. Nice cliffhanger! Well done!

  26. A-Freaking-Mazing! Your writing leaves me so spent, but craving so much more! I can't wait for more of both the Secrets and Coincidences series!

  27. Just finished reading the first book, stayed up till 5 in the morning because I just couldn't put it down! Its been a while since I've read a book this good that you just want to do nothing but read to find out what happens next and I am so looking forward to the next book to see what happens. I like that the story wasn't finished in one book because Callie and Kayden's problems and relationship is not a story to be rushed which makes it all more believable.

  31. Hi Jessica my name is Bethany Sorenson. I have read all of your writings and have watched your literary skills come to fruition. Not only has your grammar come to perfection but your stories have become richer. While I truly enjoyed your earlier publications, Callie and Kayden is my favorite! As a psychology major I must say, that your knowledge and understanding of the coping mechanisms used by those who are broken is astounding. Congratulations on your success!

  32. I am obsessed with the first book. I literally sat down and read it in one day. I was actually disappointed when I had to take a break to eat or shower. I think the way that you tell a story is amazing. You really understand these different dilemmas. I loved the Secret of Ella and Michah as well. Both books were amazing. I can't wait for you to write more. I will be eagerly waiting.
