From the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Saving Quinton comes a story about giving in to love-body and soul . . .
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?
This story begins with Quinton Carter being released from a long rehab from drug abuse. As he settles into life with his father he realizes that life on the outside is much harder than it looks and the temptation of drugs is always present. His only brightness is his phone calls with Nova Reed who he believes saved his life. Although he knows he would love to have a relationship with her he does not know if he is strong enough. Quinton does start to reach out and finally connects with a survivor group who have also suffered similar incidents to his. He begins working with them building houses for Humanity and Quinton finds giving to others is therapeutic. When Nova gets some shocking news about her friend Delilah and Quinton’s cousin she needs Quinton to be there for her. Quinton has to find the strength inside to help her.
Nova is at school and thoroughly enjoying playing drums in a band. She also lives for the phone calls that she has from Quinton. Although she craves a physical relationship with him she knows that she can’t push him when he is so fragile. When she finds out that Quinton’s cousin has Hep C from drug use and is going back into the world of drugs and Delilah was shot by her boyfriend in Las Vegas her fear of not being able to save them comes back to haunt her. She reaches out to Quinton. But will he be strong enough to help her.
This final book puts the finishing touches on the relationship between Nova and Quinton. Although both were extremely troubled the reader could see how their relationship with each other could balance things out for them. Although I enjoyed the trilogy I look forward to reading something a little lighter for my next read.
