Review: Breaking Nova by: Jessica Sorensen

Breaking Nova
By: Jessica Sorensen

Synopsis: From the New York Times bestselling author of the Ella and Micha series comes a powerful story of love, scars, and impossible choices . . . 


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?

Review:  (I received this book as an ARC from

     Can a heart that has been shattered into a million tiny slivers, left scattered on the ground, be mended?  Is it possible for the jagged edges of two broken souls to fit perfectly together?  This is the story of Nova and Quinton.  Both are reeling from grief and guilt so heavy it is drowning them.  Lost in a haze of their despair the turn to alternative methods to numb the pain and end up finding each other.  Together they begin to see a glimmer of how life once was; before their worlds fell apart.  However, a glimpse of happiness isn't always enough to pull someone from the darkness.  Can either of them find the light or will they both drown in the turbulent sea of sorrow?

     Jessica Sorensen can do no wrong.  She is amazing and every story she tells is wonderful.  With delicate brush strokes she paints the hazy lives of Nova and Quinton.  I could smell the woodsy scents in the air and see the blur around the edges.  The author has a knack of taking heavy topics and drawing the reader in.  You can never go wrong with a Sorensen novel and Breaking Nova is no exception.

Happy Reading!!
