Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ The Destiny of Violet and Luke by Jessica Sorenson


Destiny of Violet and Luke


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.


I have to say I wasn’t sure about this book.  It was a slow start for me, but let me tell you the slow build paid off.  I LOVED it!!  There were so many different layers to this book and Violet and Luke are such beautifully damaged characters.  Both with such different but similar troubled childhoods.  Both such crazy, damaged young adults.  I could see the connection through out the entire book but I loved that they didn’t see it.  I have to say that Jessica has such a way with troubled characters.  Her writing is so raw and real that you cant help but fall in love with the underdogs.  Like I said, it was a slow build, but Violet and Luke had so much depth that the slow build peeled away each and every layer.  Then there is the end and all I could say is WTF!!!  I need more now!!! Once again Jessica knocks it out of the park with this damaged love story!!

I am a big fan of love stories. Ones that have nothing but happiness throughout the whole book but sometimes I need a little darkness to my love story to keep it interesting and let me tell you Jessica knows how to deliver in that department! Violet and Luke were damaged badly from horrible childhoods you would think there is no way they will survive being young adults because they are just that F*cked up from memories that haunt them everyday of their lives. But for Violet and Luke they struggled like crazy but were both determined to be someone in life no matter what their past and struggles were. These 2 characters were so much alike in different ways and had a huge connection but couldn’t see it at the beginning but us as the reader could because we were getting both POV’s throughout the story (which I LOVE by the way and Jessica wrote it very well!) The ending of this book left me wide eyed and mouth hanging open trying to still swipe my kindle for more pages but it was done!! I need more I need to know what happens to Violet and Luke! I give this book 4.5 stars

  1. Like all her books they frickin kill me. Damn cliffhanger! Gifted to my friend who won’t be my friend when she’s done reading this. Loved this story. My heart broke in two.
