Blog Tour & Giveaway: Breaking Nova [Nova 01] by Jessica Sorensen!

Publication date: 3rd September 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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?
Favourite quote: "You're like my favorite song, Nova. The one that I never want to forget. That I want to play over and over again." 
I'd been looking forward to reading this book for a while now! I'm an avid fan of Jessica Sorensen and I always look forward to her next release! Breaking Nova has to be one of the most emotional books I've ever read! It was so dark, but it had a complete bright spot at the end! Well, for one of the characters anyway! The plot of this book was so beautiful! It was full of emotion! I cried at certain scenes and I'm talking bawling my eyes out crying! I think it's going to stick with people for a long time to come! I know it's one of those books that's going to stick with me! I don't approve of smoking weed at all, but weed actually played a pretty big part in this book! People use drugs to forget and that's exactly what the main characters in this book are trying to do! They're trying to forget about their pasts, their mistakes and most of all they're trying to forget what made them who they are! I think the author took a big step in making drugs play a important role in her book! I don't think they're written about enough in New Adult/Young Adult books, so to see this author take that step was really good to see! There wasn't really a lot of romance in this book! There were steamy scenes, but Breaking Nova was more about the characters trying to come to terms with their pasts first before they think about getting into a relationship! The characters in this book were so complex! Nova was a character that my heart went out too! Her life had become a routine and when something interfered with that routine it made Nova get nervous and she would clam up! She was such a scared person, but she went through such a journey and we only get to see the start of her journey in this book! Hopefully in the next book we'll get to see her journey to recovery continue and see her become an even stronger person! I completely admired Nova at the end of this book! She'd come such a long way! Quinton was a character that had been through a lot and he was trying to come to terms with everything! He used weed to try and forget about what had happened and to block out the memories! I think that Quinton was an amazingly strong character, but he didn't know it! He doubted himself and I think that this is why he had such a hard time coming to terms with what he'd been through! All he needed was to have a little faith in himself and he would have went so far! I loved this book was told from both Nova and Quinton's point of views! It made the book even better as the two of them were so similar, but so different at the same time! Every single character in this book was going through something and they all used drugs to try to heal the pain! I really hope that we get to see all the characters on the road to recovery in the remaining books of this series! Why must Jessica Sorensen come up with the best cliff-hanger's ever?! This cliff-hanger was nowhere near as bad as the one for her other book, The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden, but it's still left me begging for more! I'm dying for the next book in the series! The cover for Breaking Nova is stunning! I think it suits the characters and I completely adore it! Big thank you to Jessica for an ARC of Breaking Nova and to Shh Mom's Reading for having me on the Blog Tour!
