Review: Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorenson

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 is depressing. The whole time I kept thinking about how much I wanted to help these characters with the pain and guilt they carried. 

Nova lost her boyfriend in a tragic way that makes me so sad. It's unfortunate what happened too... Could she have stopped what was going to happen? Not at all, it seems he had his mind made up. 

Quinton also has had a rough,tough past. His girlfriend and cousin both died from a car accident, one where he was driving. And the guilt he feels could eat him alive. 

There was so much emotion in Breaking Nova. I like the way Jessica was able to portray these deep dark feeling out of our heroine and hero. They have so much pain that you can't help but root for them both. 

I feel like I need a huge break after reading this because of all the angst and feels. I do look forward to the second book though!! That definitely left me wanting more. 

*thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a review copy for an honest review.
