Today is the first day of Quinton Carter's new life. The toxic guilt of his past left him in pieces-but one girl unexpectedly put him back together. Thanks to Nova Reed, Quinton can finally see the world with clear eyes. She's the reason his heart is still kicking behind the jagged scar on his chest. And he would love to have her in his arms every minute of the day . . . but he's not ready yet.
Playing drums in a band and living with her best friends are just some of the highlights of Nova's life. But the best new development? Talking to Quinton on the phone each night. She wishes she could touch him, kiss him, though she knows he needs time to heal. Yet shocking news is on the way-a reminder of life's dark side-and Nova will need Quinton like he once needed her. Is he strong enough to take the final leap out of his broken past . . . and into Nova's heart?
I have been hooked on Nova and Quinton’s story since the first book and I have to say the conclusion was a worthy conclusion for these two characters. Both have grown so much and I have enjoyed watching the transformation they have been through.
I restrain a grin. He said yet. Which means he's thinking about us in the future sense.
Nova and Quinton are both very raw characters, ones with a lot of darkness in their lives. So, watching them overcome that darkness, become better, make something out of their lives was a joy to watch. Nova is a strong character because of all the hardships she has endured. I have enjoyed watching her overcome obstacles and her determination to help Quinton.
Quinton, by far, is the character who has been through the most powerful transformation since the beginning of the series. He is the one I have most enjoyed watching grow. His life hasn’t been the easiest; he has a lot of demons within him, but watching him finally overcome them was such a joy. I’m very proud of his character.
I thoroughly did enjoy watching Nova and Quinton finally have an opportunity to work and understand their relationship and their feelings for each other. And this time it was Quinton who needed to help Nova. That was a very important development that I think really helped them grow and love each other. Overall, as I have mentioned, I loved watching these two characters finally overcome their demons.
I probably don't deserve her, but I want her. So fucking badly.
Sorensen developed a very raw, dark, and intense series. And I do feel that she did a very well job at drawing it to a conclusion. The story started out very nicely and the plot built with a nice intensity; however, closer to the ending I felt the story started to feel rushed and the ending felt a bit too brief. That was my only complaint about this one. But I loved the characters, all of them, the storyline, the raw depth of emotion, and the challenges the characters have faced. Therefore, the rushed ending didn’t take away from the whole story.
