"Saving Quinton" by Jessica Sorensen


SERIES: Nova #2
GENRE: NA Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

Nova Reed can't forget him—Quinton Carter, the boy with the honey-brown eyes who made her realise 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 someone 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, 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...


I may not have been particularly thrilled with this series at first, but I'm very happy I decided to keep up with it. This second instalment was so much better and involving than the first one that I devoured the book!

The characters have grown on me and I felt their struggle and desperation like I would have never imagined. They're realistic and their torment is quite touching. Nova is almost unrecognisable from the girl she used to be. It seems like the darkness surrounding her has given her a bit of a rest, at least to make her start over and get back on track. She's now stronger and very determined to save Quinton, but his addiction to drugs is so bad that it gets him in dangerous situations every day a bit more. Although Nova's tenacity is truly admirable, can the light she brings win Quinton's demons over in the end?

It's all disturbing and that is mostly because the events here are sadly a dark reality, but this is also the strength of the book. I truly want to see those two sort things out, I crave for Quinton to finally start living again and enjoy life (or try to), and for them to find the happiness they both deserve. Bring it, book three!
