The Destiny of Violet & Luke by Jessica SorensenLuke Prices 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 its hard to forget when she never got closure-and she cant 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 cant seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things theyve never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .
