Tour Stop: BREAKING NOVA by Jessica Sorensen ~ Review/Giveaway

Title: Breaking Nova
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Hosted by: Shh Mom's Reading
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?

This was definitely not a make you feel warm and fuzzy kind of book. It was dark and at times depressing but the story was so damn enthralling that I couldn't stop reading. It left me feeling like I was beaten up emotionally but yet I still wanted more. The ending... I was thinking "Nooo, You.Can.Not.Be.Serious!!"
The storyline was brilliant and the characters were heartbreaking! OMG, these two had nightmare pasts that no one should have to endure at such a young age. You will feel every soul crushing, painful moment with them. From the joys of first love to dealing with death, despair and all of that not so typical teenage angst, this one had it all.

  At one point I was hoping that there would be a brighter side for them but it never really happened. After I finished, I realized that it was perfectly flawed and rightly so or the story just wouldn't have had the same hold on me.

There are parts of this story I will not forget any time soon and for that I am giving Breaking Nova 5 "Rip My Heart Out" Stars!!
