It breaks my heart but I was not able to get into Cage. I fell in love with Cage and his alpha male hotness in Axel (Corps Security #1) (Rating - 5 star). Was looking forward to his story but was very disappointed. I could not connect with the story line as nothing wow me in the beginning. I did not like where it was going and the characters and writing style was nothing like Axel. Cage, Isabelle and Axel personalities were nothing like they were in Axel. I found it off that Axel would talk about another woman breasts and even was more off is Cage who was so over protected of Axel wife Isabelle who is also his best friend would allow it. I understand that these are men having their manly talk but these were not the same men I read in Axel. Right from the beginning I felt the novel was rushed and pushed to make things happen. I was going to push through it and hope things got better but sadly nothing was flowing right and at this moment it will sit on my DNF shelf. Who knows maybe one day I will try and give it another go at it. Not sure If I will continue with this series as I rather wait a long time to have a well fleshed out novel than have a rushed thrown together novel.(less)

Breaking Nova is my first read by Jessica Sorensen and to be honest I really had a hard time connecting with Nova and Quinton. I set this novel down many times as I could not get into the writing style. Breaking Nova starts out flat for me as almost every paragraph starts with "I, I'm, We, She, Her, He, His" etc.
It starts off in the prologue with both Nova and Quinton incidents that made them the way they are today. They are both Broken, Confused and Lost characters. About 40% into Breaking Nova is when I finally started to feel a little connection with them. That is when the flashbacks start happening and readers get to visualize what really happened. The flashbacks are well written and wish the story was written in that way, more visual and with depth. Quinton uses drugs as an escape from his incident. After reading his first flashback who could blame him for turning to drugs as an out. It was painful and my heart broke for him.
Now for Nova one thing I wanted so badly was for her to click on that "file" she has saved from her incident. Do not want to give any spoilers but if you read Breaking Nova then you will understand what I am talking about. That "File" broke my heart.
Breaking Nova is a dark novel dealing with the affects of tragedy. It is not faint for the heart or a HEA read. I have a few of my downs with the novel but I loved the direction it was going towards the end. Book 2 is for sure on my To-Buy-list come February.
