It will be really hard for me to express what makes this book so amazing without giving any spoilers away. I will say it is one of the most emotionally powerful and honest books I have read in a long time. That also means, it is not the easiest book to read. There is no white knight and no easy fixes. Jessica clearly did her research when writing this book. I have read everything that I know of that Jessica has written and in all honesty, I think this is her best work. I should mention that this is Nova book one, so do not expect everything to be tied up in a pretty bow at the end of the story. That being said, the story is not all left open and hanging. Some major decisions were made and some important healing took place. It is not half a book. It is a whole story with simply more to come. It should be noted : This book deals heavily with the aftermath of suicide, anxiety, and with drug use and addiction.

Nova and Quinton have both suffered major losses, both are completely shattered and find it nearly impossible to continue with life. Nova is sad all the time and has turned obsessive compulsive. She tries to stay in control of things by counting -- tiles, rocks, picture frames on a wall -- to keep the memories in her head at bay. Quinton went from being a good boy with a future ahead of himself to drug addict with no job and no desire have a pulse. That is until they meet each other and the shattered pieces of each other's hearts begin to fit together. But can either of them handle putting their broken hearts into the other's hand? Quinton doesn't feel like he deserves to be happy or have any kind of future, and Nova doesn't think she can move on without first understanding why she lost the one person she thought she would love forever.

Breaking Nova was so freaking depressing it almost broke me. I came very close to DNF'ing this one. It wasn't heart wrenching in the way that you describe a book that makes you laugh after a good cry either. It was downright dismal. I don't know if it's because I've read too many angst-ridden contemporary romances lately or what, but my compassion well has dried up. Too many broken people and not enough band-aids in my first aid kit, I suppose. Even in the beginning of the book when Nova describes Landon, the love of her life, and how bleak he was all the time I thought, "What is so attractive about a guy like that?" I would have dumped his ass pronto and moved onto someone that was happy to be alive, at least most of the time.

After the halfway mark of this book I started to like it a bit more.

Jessica Sorensen I feel like I have cheated you, there is no way this book is worth only 99 cents. This book is beyond 5stars!!!!! This books tops both Ella and Micah and Callie and Kaydens stories. It is also darker than both those series. It is a darkness that is heart wrenching, yet moving. The dual POVs are in sync with one another. Nova starts out as this weak heroine who appears to have no one that can help her; if anything the characters around her break her down even more. Then there is Quinton, like the saying goes you can't help people who don't want to help themselves and unfortunately he is one of those people. But his character has a purpose that serves beyond this first book. Although he is damaged and unreachable emotionally, he is the catalyst for Nova's self transformation. I need to Xanax to help me through the wait until the next book. This book has definitely earned itself a spot in one of my top five favorite books/series. Highly recommend this book

I love all of Jessica sorenson's books but this one grabbed me in a much deeper and emotional level. I couldn't put it down. I felt all of the pain and emotions as they played out. I can't wait for the next book to see how Nova and Quinton's story and healing continue!

This book is about drugs, death, suicide, OCD... This IS NOT A ROMANCE..... Is there a category for death and drugs... Depressing and it never gets to a point to make you feel better about them. Make her better but him way worse... End of story.. No LOVE or romance unless it's that of a middle school relationship or a dead person...

Jessica Sorensen has given me a look inside 5 broken lives, and two tormented souls with Breaking Nova. She made me feel their pain, made me cry their tears, and made me see their lost hopes and dreams.

An excellent depiction of what loss can do to the human spirit, we are shown not just the daily struggles to get by, but the hours, minutes, and seconds of the day that are so hard to maneuver. Ms. Sorensen navigates us through the difficult path of the stages of grief...some of them...not everyone makes it through all of them. In real life we sometimes get stuck in some of the stages and just like real life, this book also deals with what happens when we get stuck.

The writing was excellent, she drew me into the story, and kept me captivated. I never skimmed a line, never skipped ahead, I didn't want to miss a word. This was my favorite of her books. I look forward to the next in the series.
