My thoughts bounce back and forth like an out-of-control bouncy ball. Right and wrong. Fear and want. Heartbreak and happiness. God, if my father could see me now, he’d be so disappointed. He used to call me his Little Spitfire, a seized the day, blue-eyed girl. He said he envied my sense of adventure.
A 3 stars first book I have read from the Nova series. Although it didn’t grab my attention like Kayden and Callie’s story from the Coincidence series there are intense situations that will make you wonder whether to give up, let go, and/or to take a chance on someone that makes you feel safe and comfortable. Complicated or not life is about to take a tailspin for Clara and Jax.
