Nova Reed used to have dreams-of becoming a famous drummer, of marrying her true love. But all of that was taken away in an instant. Now she's getting by as best she can, though sometimes that means doing things the old Nova would never do. Things that are slowly eating away at her spirit. Every day blends into the next . . . until she meets Quinton Carter. His intense, honey brown eyes instantly draw her in, and he looks just about as broken as she feels inside.
Quinton once got a second chance at life-but he doesn't want it. The tattoos on his chest are a constant reminder of what he's done, what he's lost. He's sworn to never allow happiness into his life . . . but then beautiful, sweet Nova makes him smile. He knows he's too damaged to get close to her, yet she's the only one who can make him feel alive again. Quinton will have to decide: does he deserve to start over? Or should he pay for his past forever?
Oh how I love anything Jessica Sorensen. Breaking Nova was another heart wrenching story that tore at my heart.
Nova has lost two of the most important people in her life, and witnessed both. After losing them, she loses herself and has no idea how to get past it. She doesn't let anyone in until she meets Quinton. At first she thinks she's drawn to him because of how much he reminds her of her deceased boyfriend. But as she gets to know him more, she realizes there's much more to him and she can't stay away.
Quinton is wallowing in self pity. When he lost the love of his life in a car wreck, that he was the driver, he vows to live his life loyal to her-never letting anyone else in. When he meets Nova he finds commonality in her sadness. He wants to see her laugh, smile, and take away her pain.
Breaking Nova was another heart breaker. Both Nova and Quinton have ignored their emotions for so long they've gone numb. Neither of them are sure how to get past their guilt or emotions regarding those that they've lost. Wondering if they could have saved them, blaming themselves for their pain.
"People say time heals all wounds, and maybe they're right. But what if the wounds don't heal correctly, like when cuts leave behind nasty scars, or when broken bones mend together, but aren't as smooth anymore? Does it mean they're really healed? Or is it that the body did what it could to fix what broke...But what exactly is broke...with me..with him...I'm not sure, but it feels like I need to find out...somehow...about him...about myself...but how the fuck do I find out about him when the only person that truly knew what was real is...gone?"
I loved the emotions that both Quinton and Nova felt throughout this. They made me want to hug them because they're just so fragile and sad, but at the same time I wanted to strangle them and yell 'GET IT TOGETHER!".
Of course this book had another cliff hanger and I am anxious to get Nova #2 already! If you've loved Jessica Sorensen's other books you won't regret reading this one either. It's not your typical happy love story but there is more than enough depth and emotion to it!! Love love love!
