Review: The Probability of Violet and Luke by Jessica Sorensen

Luke Price and Violet Hayes haven’t seen each other in a couple of months, not since they discovered Luke’s mother’s connection to Violet’s parent’s murders. But when Luke gets into some gambling trouble with the wrong people, destiny decides to throw the two of them together and they head out to Vegas to try and settle Luke’s debt.

As Violet spends time with Luke, she becomes torn on whether she should be with him. She definitely can’t deny that her life is better when she’s with Luke and she starts to wonder if going back to Preston was a mistake.

Things seem to be going well as Violet opens up more to Luke, but then she gets a call from the detective, not only to give an update on Mira Price and the case, but to give information about some threatening texts she’s been getting. The information is not only shocking, but makes Violet question what kind of people her parents really where and whether she’ll be able to trust anyone ever again.

4 Star Review by Jen Skewes

Honestly going into this book I was not sure what to expect.  When we last left off Violet and Luke were not in a good place.  I was afraid of what would happen with Violet leaving and going back to live with Preston.  So afraid of what would happen between her and Luke.  These two have been through so much heartache and pain that I just wanted to see them be happy.  They deserved to be happy and deserved to find love with each other.  I didn't think that my heart could break for these two any more than it did in the first book, but it did.   And as always Ms. Sorensen made me feel that hurt and pain right along with these two broken characters.

Violet and Luke found a happy place with each other.  A place that they honestly probably never felt in their life.  But when they discovered that they had more of a connection than they could ever imagined things between them became very complicated, causing Violet to run.  It's been two months and Violet has gone back to living with Preston.  Doing things that she is not happy or proud of, but what needs to be done in order to survive.  It's her only way, or so she thinks.

Luke is back to his drinking and reckless ways.  Getting into fights and just miserable without Violet.  He knows that he needs to stay away from her and give her the space she needs.  But it's so hard when he still has feelings for her, he wants to be near her, touch her, feel her.  He was in a good place with her and now he is back in his dark hole.  But once again life or should I say destiny brings them back together.  They are both stuck in a very difficult situation and take off together to try and work it out.  They start to reconnect and they both realize just how much they missed each other, how much they need each other and perhaps love each other.  But not everything is perfect for the two of them and they still face obstacles along the way.  But you can only hope that for the two of them that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This book was a quick read and one that I devoured in one sitting.  I love Luke and Violet and feel so heart broken for them.  They were both dealt shitty hands and feel that they are so unworthy of happiness.  But we start to see the grow more in this one, emotionally.  Violet starts opening up more and they both learn how to ask for help.  I loved how protective Luke is over Violet and how much he wants to be there for him.  Despite his own issues in life he cared for her and wanted to be there.  I also loved the role that Luke's father played in this book.  It is nice to see someone else take care of and love him like a parent should.  Luke and Violet have had a tough life and continue to deal with the hand that life has dealt them. If anyone deserves to be happy it s certainly these two.  I felt their pain and seeing more of what they went through will break you heart.  I hope to see them find their happiness in the next installment!
