Nova ~ Rebecca Yarros

The only heart he wants is the one he already broke...

The Renegades #2
Rebecca Yarros
Releasing February 20th, 2017
Entangled Embrace

The only heart he wants is the one he already broke...

He's Landon Rhodes.
The Renegade they call Nova.
Sinfully gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder.
Four-time X Games medalist—
Full-time heartbreaker.

They say a girl broke him once—
That's why he's so reckless, so driven, so careless with his conquests.

But I'm that girl.
They can call me his curse all they want.
He and I both know the truth—
He's the one who destroyed me,
And I'm not the sucker who will let that happen again.

***NOVA can be read as a standalone***

Rebecca Yarros is a hopeless romantic and a lover of all things coffee, chocolate, and Paleo. She is the author of the Flight & Glory series, which includes Full Measures, the award-winning Eyes Turned Skyward, Beyond What Is Given, and Hallowed Ground. She loves military heroes and has been blissfully married to hers for fifteen years.

When she’s not writing, she’s tying hockey skates for her four sons, sneaking in some guitar time, or watching Brat Pack movies with her two daughters. She lives in Colorado with the hottest Apache pilot ever, their rambunctious gaggle of kids, and an English bulldog who is more stubborn than sweet. They recently adopted their youngest daughter from the foster system, and Rebecca is passionate about helping others do the same.

What would you do if you had a chance to correct the biggest mistake you'd ever made?

In Nova, the second book in The Renegades series, Landon aka Nova is faced with just that opportunity when Rachel joins the college at sea program.

After meeting Nova in Wilder, the first Renegades book, I was curious to get to know the real Landon behind the extreme athlete persona. It was amazing how having Rachel around seemed to flip a switch for him and he became a character that was incredibly easy to like and root for.
Because Landon was a character I found myself liking pretty quickly, there were times when I struggled with Rachel. I understood her reluctance and hurt, but it felt like there were times she was almost playing with Landon's emotions and that didn't sit well. Twists and turns later in the story redeemed her for me and I found myself hoping they would get their happy ending.

This is a well written and enjoyable book. There are times when the characters seem older than the 22 or 23 they are, but there are other times when they seem exactly like college students! While this is a stand alone book, there is a lot of valuable back story in the first book of the series (Wilder), so I would suggest reading the series in order.
