SYNOPSIS

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***

Landon Rhodes aka Nova is a gorgeous 22 yr. old guy who’s a professional snowboarder that’s all about speed, adrenaline & the rush. He’s an extreme sports junkie & a four times X Games medalist. He’s part of a team called the Renegades that are like family to him. They are currently filming a documentary while on a Study at Sea program on the cruise ship the Athena. They perform stunts for their YouTube subscribers & are all over social media.

Landon is especially reckless since he made the difficult decision to walk away from the love of his life about two and a half years ago. He screwed up his only chance at love, & now only has endless hook-ups. Nothing could fill the hole in his soul, but sex seemed to momentarily dull the pain. He was forever haunted by her memory & what could have been. She was still all he could think about. Then suddenly he see’s her, and it feels like he can finally breathe again.

-There wasn’t a single nerve in my body that didn’t come alive at his nearness.

-This intense connection that strung us together would always be there. Buried, burned, or frayed, but never destroyed. Landon was always going to call to me.

-The things this man did to my body with just his voice were criminal.

Rachel Dawson is stuck on a Study at Sea program for the next six months with the only guy she’s ever loved. The one she gave up everything for & then he broke her heart. When she was eighteen he didn’t choose her, & made her feel she wasn’t good enough. He abandoned her & it destroyed her. She won’t be vulnerable again or let him close enough to hurt her. Her plan is to ignore him & avoid him, but it’s easier said than done when he’s everywhere she turns.

Landon wants a second chance with Rachel. He wanted her to forgive his stupid mistakes & was determined to win her heart again. He sets out to prove to her he’s not going anywhere this time, & she’s his top priority. He wants a fresh start & is prepared to be patient. He makes it his mission to remind her how good they are together. Soon Rachel can’t resist him or deny her feelings any longer. Things heat up between them and we get some angst, seriously delicious moments and a beautiful love story.

-My heart reminded me that I was going to have to fight for this woman with every weapon in my arsenal if I wanted her. And damn, I wanted her. Craved her. Needed her.

-I was still fucking wild over her.

-“There’s no one in this world who loves her like I do.”

-She owned me.
