Synopsis: For Kayden, suffering in silence was the only way to survive. If he was lucky, he could keep his head down, do as he was told, and make it through the day. But one night it seemed like his luck-and his life-might finally end . . . until an angel named Callie appeared just in time to rescue him.
Callie has never believed in luck. Not since her twelfth birthday when everything was taken from her. After the worst was over, she locked up her feelings and vowed never to tell anyone what happened. Now, six years later, she continues to struggle with the painful secret that threatens to consume her.
When fate lands Kayden and Callie at the same college, Kayden is determined to get to know the beautiful girl who changed his destiny. Quiet and reserved, Callie still fears letting anyone else into her world. But Kayden is certain that Callie has come back into his life for a reason. And the more he tries to be a part of her life, the more he realizes that, this time, it’s Callie who needs to be saved . . .

Jessica Sorensen does not get enough credit for her work in the New Adult genre. This book was absolutely captivating and a real page turner that I could not put down! Both main characters, Callie and Kayden, are layered characters; neither are perfect, but together they might just be.
Callie is a shy and introverted college student, who doesn’t like to talk or be touched by males. A past experience has changed her for life and she is forced to keep her past locked up inside. But then she starts hanging out with Kayden – a boy she knew from grade school and who is also at her college. Slowly Kayden peels away the walls that Callie has put up and helps to heal her in a way she thought she could never be healed. Little does she know the demons that Kayden has been dealing with…
An amazingly layered story, with great characters, this book is a must read for any New Adult fan. I read this book in a day – and beware! As soon as you finish this book, you will be running out to get the sequel!
