Book Description

From the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Breaking Nova comes a gripping story about what it takes to save the one you love . . .

Nova Reed can't forget him-Quinton Carter, the boy with the honey-brown eyes who made her realize she deserved more than an empty life. His pain was so similar to her own. But Nova has been coming to terms with her past and healing, while Quinton is out there somewhere, sinking deeper. She's determined to find him and help him . . . before it's too late.

Nova has haunted his dreams for nearly a year-but Quinton never thought a sweet, kind person like her would care enough about a person like him. To Quinton, a dark, dangerous life is exactly what he deserves. And Nova has no place in it. But Nova has followed him to Las Vegas, and now he must do whatever it takes to keep her away, to maintain his self-imposed punishment for the unforgivable things he's done. But there's one flaw in his plan: Nova isn't going anywhere . . .

After waiting MONTHS, this is what I had to read?!?! The most depressing story about drug addiction and trying to get someone out of it that I've EVER read AND with no ending to the story!!!! OMG! Now I have to wait until August of 2014 to see if there is an ending to Quinton and Nova?!? I think I could have skipped this one and waited. Really didn't need all this detailed info on his drug life. Seems it could have really been condensed and let the readers have it all at once.....just drag it out, sell those books!!! Really enjoy this author, just tired of these tactics of so many....losing me.

It's a good story. I love the characters. However, there is too much internal thinking and repeating of the same thought. Ugh I got tired of reading the same thing over and over. I just started skipping lines and paragraphs. Would have been a GReAT book if it was not for that. Wound NOT read again.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 5 Stars for this slow-paced frustrating read February 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
*** ARC received in exchange for an honest review ***

"Looking back, I realize that Quinton entered my life for a reason. It may not have made sense when I first met him nearly a year ago, but it does now."

"This room is just a place and Nancy is just a person and I'm just another junkie loser someone I don't care about because I want to get high again."

Saving Quinton starts exactly one year after Breaking Nova left us. Nova has found her way out of darkness, drugs and bad company. She tries to accept her past - her boyfriend's suicide and her attempted one - rather then forget it by getting high. Looking back at the dark place she was before she saw the sunlight made her realize that this is not the way to deal with grief, and helped her to move on.

Yet she could never forget Quinton, the boy she felt so close to last summer, and who still lingers in that dark space she once was in, because he carries the self-inflicted weight of her girlfriend's death on his shoulders. And Nova is convicted she must help him, now that she saved herself. Except that when she finds Quinton, he's in a way darker place and it will take her a lot of convincing that he deserves better...

I was very interested in reading more about Nova an Quinton when I finished the prequel to this book, Breaking Nova. It had a weird pace, but I thought that things would take off in the sequel. But the pace of this book was even slower than expected. The whole book depicts about 3 week's time and the slow speed just kills the reader because nothing is happening. It is a slow description of the awful world of drugs, and of the disgusting and desperate actions a drug junkie is ready to take while looking for his next fix.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's more drama than romance February 11, 2014
By LillyK

I love this author but her books are just getting depressing. I started skimming pages because the characters keep rambling about the same old depressing issues. I did like the characters and was rooting for them but the book dragged in parts. Overall not my favorite of her novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quinton's story. February 4, 2014
By K. Bias
Format:Kindle Edition
Nova and Quinton had a challenging beginning and both have many issues past and present (Breaking Nova). Their time spent together the past summer opened the door to a connection that was unexpected, significant, erratic, and overwhelming. And it left a mark on both on them. It all came to a breaking point and they parted. Nova has worked hard to break free from her past, get healthy, and try to move on. But she cannot shake the fact that she left Quinton behind in a bad situation.

And in her absence, Quinton has sunk into a downward spiral that he cannot seem to recover from...a haze of drugs, depression, meaningless encounters, and no direction. He is on a path of destruction and embracing the peace of dying sooner rather than later. He does not care. He does not want to feel anything. But unfortunately he does feel feel negative things...terrible loss, guilt, hopelessness, and unworthiness.

It is up to Nova to chase him down and make him face his demons and fight for him even when he does not want to fight for himself. But he is barricaded behind near impenetrable walls of his own making. He is numbing his pain to keep it buried. He has a death wish. He feels unworthy. He does not feel like he deserves, happiness, Nova, or a good life due to his past mistakes.

But Nova was not able to save her boyfriend, Landon and she is determined that she is not giving up until she saves Quinton. She is a girl on a mission...a dangerous, scary, and frequently disappointing one. She is persistent, fearless, pushy and provides Quinton a sliver of hope. Although Quinton does not want to admit or truly embrace it. My heart broke again for Quinton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, Devastating, Gritty, and Addictive! February 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
My Thoughts:

I have read many Stories by Jessica Sorensen. I have learned that her prose flow beautifully, her characters are complex and multilayered, and the plots in her stories often deal with dark, realistic, and heartbreaking topics. Her stories always take me to a dark place. They have a way of pulling me in and completely hooking me. The Nova Series, is by far the darkest of all of her stories. It deals with the harsh realities, ugliness, and consequences of drug addiction.

In Saving Quinton, we get both Nova and Quinton's dual perspectives. Nova has been working on her recovery, and is in a place where she knows that she wants to heal, and live a happy life. She no longer drinks or does drugs, and she has finally dealt with her deceased boyfriend, Landon's, suicide. Nova is doing well in college, and works for a suicide hotline. She has gotten even closer to her mother, and has befriended, Lea, a young woman who she met at support group for people who have lost loved one's to suicide. Lea is a great friend and room mate. Nova can't stop thinking and worrying about Quinton. He changed her life last summer, and they had a strong connection with one another. Nova, with the help of Lea searches for Quinton. She is determined to find him and save him from his drug addiction. She feels like she failed Landon and is determined that this time she is determined to succeed in saving Quinton. However, when she finds Quinton, she realizes that saving him is going to be the challenge of a lifetime.

Quinton is in a very dark place in his life. He is a drug addict living with other hardcore addicts, and dealing drugs, so he can get the money for his much needed fix. Quinton wants to die.
