Breaking Nova

From Goodreads: 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?


Breaking Nova was simply AMAZING!
This is one of the best books I've read in awhile. Seriously!
Jessica Sorenson did her thing in this book.

The Good:
Nova, her original name (Jessica Sorenson is really good at coming up with nice names)
Her hobbies (once playing the drums)
Her flaws and her personality.
Quinton: He's attractive and sweet with a whole bunch of flaws of his own.
I couldn't get enough of him.
I seriously just wanted to jump in this book and give him a hug.
I love how Jessica Sorenson builds her characters.
Everyone is dealing with something.
Quinton isn't some perfect guy, perfect family, plan for his life, Got his head on straight
He is all messed up in the head and I love it.
Nova is a strong female and hopefully she will be the knight in shining armor in the follow up.
Patterns have shown that Jessica Sorenson is not done with these characters just yet, and I cannot wait!

The Bad:
Nothing is perfect
There was a minor detail mix up for me on if his mother did or did not die in labor.
This drove me crazy and I read that chapter like 3 times.
He'd mentioned his mother only briefly before so I wasn't sure if I had missed something.

The Ugly Spoilers:
I can do nothing but RAVE about this book. Even if I did dislike a character (Delilah!) I love that Jessica wrote her so well. She wasn't forgettable, and if Jessica's pattern is consistent, A follow up will be written about her. I am actually pretty curious where Delilah's thought process is.
It wasn't the drugs or even the dealing.
A particular part while they were at the concert she acted like a complete and total Bitch!
And didn't acknowledge it or apologize and Nova just ignored it.
And I don't blame Quinton and his obsessive weed smoking for Nova's new habit.
I blame the person who was supposed to be her friend. Delilah. She kept pushing it in her face.
Even Tristan. He was always more than willing to supply some drugs.
Did they ever have her best interest at heart.
This book sucked me in to the bad and the good, and Nova never even had sex with Quinton.

Jessica Sorenson! I Love You!
Please don't make me wait too long for the follow up

If you haven't read The Coincidence or The Secret you are missing out.
