Nova is book 2 in the Renegade series and one that I was dying to get my hands on! While you could read it as a stand alone, you shouldn’t because book 1 was one of my top books of 2016. Nova will be on my list for 2017!
You know a book belongs on your top books list when you resent things in your life for stopping you from reading. I loathed my job for taking me away from my book. I was ticked that my dogs actually expected me to stop reading and feed them! I was desperate to read this book. I was pissed when I woke up in the morning because I realized I had fallen asleep reading when I fully planned to stay up all night to devour this book. Yeah, Nova is so going on my Top Reads list for sure. It might even maintain that top spot.
Nova (aka Landon) has been known as Casanova for his way with the ladies. LOTS of ladies. But, before he was ‘Nova’, he was a boy in love with a girl. And he chosen the Renegades instead of that girl. Rachel barely survived Landon abandoning her without so much as a goodbye. From that tragedy though she met her BFF, Leah (the heroine in Wilder). I truly wasn’t sure I could ever forgive Landon for what had happened between him and Rachel. But, as her defenses cracked, so did mine. And when tragedy struck her again, I felt it as acutely as if it happened to me. This story totally tore my heart up! I also loved the slow burn between these two. Landon withholding sex…so swoonworthy!
If you are a fan of second chance romance, Nova needs to be at the top of your TBR. If you are a fan of new adult, Nova is your next book. If you are a fan of non-traditional sports romances, Nova is calling your name. Seriously, just read the damn book and thank me!
