The book starts with Nova looking for Quinton and tracking him down in Las Vegas. She feels the need to save him after she was unable to save her boyfriend Landon. She decides to drop everything and goes to see him with her friend Lea. When she gets there, Quinton is unconscious after getting beaten with a tire iron when a drug deal goes wrong. When Quinton finally awakes, he is not happy to see Nova and forces her to leave. Nova refuses to give up and tries again a few days later. She manages to get him to go for a ride with her but he is high on crystal meth. That is basically the entire first half of the book. She gets him to go somewhere, he is high, they talk, he gets mad, she cries, he leaves. The second half of the book does not change much except its other people getting brutally beaten over bad drug deals. Since Dylan cant pay for some missing drugs, he gives up Delilah to the drug dealers for sex. Tristan is left for dead and then OD's on drugs but Quinton manages to keep him alive to till the ambulance gets there. Then he goes missing. Nova looks for him but after no leads she finally leaves Las Vegas to go back to school. Quinton moves on from crystal meth to heroin. Months go by and Nova finally realizes she know where he is but is it too late to save him?
I wish I could say that I loved this book but I just wanted to slap both Nova and Quinton the entire book!
