Publisher's Summary

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?

4 Beautifully Intense Dark Broken Stars!!

WARNING! This is one of those books that won’t be for everyone. There were some seriously gritty parts. Death. Teen Suicide. Depression. Mindless sex. A lot of drug use. People who are doing any thing they can to erase the pain, numb themselves. If all that makes you uncomfortable or you are looking for a stand alone with a hea, this won’t be the book for you. However, If you are looking for an emotional, raw, powerful and beautiful book, you will want to give this one a go!!! I went back and forth on my rating... the book wasn't perfect, but any book that can evoke that much feeling from me gets a least 4 solid stars. I love Jessica Sorensen’s writing. It’s so fluid and beautiful. Most of her books aren't light. She creates beautifully damaged characters who have some serious issues. Nova and Quinton are not perfect characters. They are both broken, flawed, damaged. Nova Reed & Quinton Carter have both suffered major losses. Their lives have been shattered by these deaths and find it hard to live a normal life in the aftermath. Nova used to have a carefree and strong spirit, who looked at life optimistically, until her boyfriend Landon committed suicide. Now she is sad all the time and has formed OCD. She counts rocks, cracks, tiles, and so on – just to keep the memories buried. Quinton was a really good guy with a bright future ahead of him, until one tragic night when he lost control of his car and killed his girlfriend and another friend of his. He nearly died that night but got a second chance at a life. Unfortunately, he does not feel lucky to be alive. The person he used to be died on the side of the road that night. In place of the old Quinton is an emotionless broken man, who numbs his pain with drugs. These two broken souls are drowning in their grief and never thought they could feel something other than sadness and pain until they meet each other. I am going to be very honest. This is a painful book to listen to. This story is heartbreaking. Suicide, death, guilt, drug abuse all play a strong role in this story. BUT it is real. I truly felt the pain these characters endure. Maybe I have issues but I appreciated the emotional pain and deep despair that Breaking Nova inflicted upon me. I’m not giving it 5 stars because there was a point when I felt it just had too much angst and I also really HATE cliffhangers! It wasn't a horrible cliffhanger but it stinks I have to wait for the next book to be released.
