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?

our thoughts

Breaking Nova  is build on every dark and dangerous corner of life. This is not your fairy tale love story, or a promise of Happily Ever After. This is a walk down tragedy lane; with detour down addiction and depression avenue. Nova and Quinton are both victims of terrible past. Living with the grief and remorse as survivors has left them in deep depression, and a determination to find something to mask the pain. When their self destructive paths cross they find themselves faces with choices, and a chance for possibility. Without hope on their sides they are running full throttle down and dark path that may cost both of them their lives. This story was a bit of slow starter, but the deep content had me hanging on. About midway through this picks up pace, and I felt as though I sailed through the remaining pages. As I expressed above this is not our usually HEA, but the depth and intensity that this story struck me as a promising series. The glimmer of hope concluding this story gave a bit of reprieve from the dark and gloomy nature of this story, but it also previews a future that will be harder than anything experienced in this one story. The future of the Nova series will be hard and vicious path that devoted readers will feel compelled to follow through. On a side note this novel is packed full of drugs and sexual content that should definitely be for the mature readers that can fully understand this dark and dangerous road.
