"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 . . ."
My heart... Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen was a quite surprise for me. (You can read my review here.) I thought it would be just another new adult romance, but it turned out to be much more than that. One thing that I have to admit is my fear of second/middle book syndrome - I had my doubts about Saving Quinton. Just like Reviving Izabel wasn't even close to awesomeness of Killing Sarai (J.A. Remderski). But it was even better than the first novel.
Girl who wants to save a boy and boy who doesn't want to be saved. For starters, I have to warn you - if you are expecting fluffy romance novel packed in a lot of drama and bad boy vs. good girl scenarios, Saving Quinton is not for you. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't read it - latest Jessica Sorensen release in on must read list of 2014. Yes, there is a love story - one of the epic kind if you ask me - but main focus is on addiction. Brutal and heartwrenching tale about "lost boys" of our generation. Not an easiest book to read. It is narrated by Nova and Quinton, one of the beast dual point of views I've read lately because you do notice that the story is told by a different person. Nova feels guilt for leaving Quinton and she still has few issues with Landon's death. Quinton falls deeper into the world of drugs and it gets harder for him everyday. Story is not just about two of them - we get glimpses into the lives of Tristan, Delilah and Dylan too. The big part of the novel is about Tristan, Quinton's cousin.
Please read it! This is one of the rare new adult novels that steps out of the boundaries of genre. No alpha males, virgin girls who are fainting every time they see naked abs and tattoos, no bad boys/man-whores changing their ways because of the naive little girls with big blue eyes... Saving Quinton will break your heart just like it did mine.
Is this a last novel in Nova series? No it is not. Nova and Quinton: No Regrets comes out next month, April 15th, and that should be a conclusion to their story. Tristan will get his own book - Wreck Me will be published in October.
