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?

 I love Sorensen's books. I enjoy the well thought out background to the characters, and the emotional depth she puts into them. This new series is just as good as the others. 

This story is about dealing with death and drug use, and it doesn't hold much back. It is dark and gritty. If you are wanting something happy, this is not a "feel good" book. We see the inner turmoil of our MC's and how they, together, are finally starting to heal from the tragedies that flipped their life upside down. 

We get to watch our of our character's growth. Some succeed, and others continue on their darker paths. Our main character goes through a lot in this book, and I loved watching her grow. She has to learn when to hang on to someone and when to let them go. Nova's story isn't easy and it isn't perfect. It is full of angst. Through the coarse of the book, she has to figure out who she is, and where to go from the current point she is at.

Quinton is a wounded man. He has even deeper issues than Nova. He is in a much worse state, and makes some very, very bad decisions. It's these decisions that impact his development in the book.

Overall, I enjoyed Breaking Nova a lot. I can't wait to read the continuing story, and where it takes our characters. They have a long journey a head of them, and I look forward to every minute of it. If you can handle a book with dark themes and doesn't have to end with a happily ever after then check this one out.
