Review: Nova and Quinton: No Regrets by Jessica Sorensen

Nova and Quinton: No Regrets      
By: Jessica Sorensen
Release Date: April 15, 2014
Series: Nova #3

Today is the first day of Quinton Carter's new life. The toxic guilt of his past left him in pieces-but one girl unexpectedly put him back together. Thanks to Nova Reed, Quinton can finally see the world with clear eyes. She's the reason his heart is still kicking behind the jagged scar on his chest. And he would love to have her in his arms every minute of the day . . . but he's not ready yet.

Playing drums in a band and living with her best friends are just some of the highlights of Nova's life. But the best new development? Talking to Quinton on the phone each night. She wishes she could touch him, kiss him, though she knows he needs time to heal. Yet shocking news is on the way-a reminder of life's dark side-and Nova will need Quinton like he once needed her. Is he strong enough to take the final leap out of his broken past . . . and into Nova's heart?


Jessica Sorensen always knows just how to capture the angst and problems that happen throughout young adults and people alike, this continuation of Nova and Quinton’s story, or should I say finalization of their story is quite endearing, sweet and thought provoking just like the previous two in this series. 

We are back with Quinton who is finally getting out of rehab and trying to put his life back together and Nova is trying to get on with hers but she can’t help the fact that she misses Quinton.  These two both needed saving at different times but with each other’s help and strength they were able to give that to one another.  Even though Quinton doesn’t believe he deserves someone as good as Nova they belong together and it’s evident with all the text messages they share together.

There is something special about true love that will get you each time and these two definitely shared that strong connection, maybe it was the events in their lives but whatever it is it made them stronger, together.  I do however feel bad for Tristen because he’s just in the background feeling as worthless as ever, that’s why I can’t wait to read the next book which is all about him. He’s a lost soul that also needs some saving, but not even the ever savior complex of Nova can save him, he needs something more. 

It was good to see these characters grow into a better life for one another and I can’t wait to catch glimpses of them in the next book.  They now both have a purpose and a meaning and a strong relationship to look forward to.  I believe Jessica Sorensen has a way of not glamorizing the nitty gritty parts of life but showing how you can overcome your past demons.  I have loved all her stories and this series is no less than the others.  Drugs are a hard thing to get over, but when you do there really is a brighter side around the corner.

The cover was great.  The story was amazing and really came full circle.  This is another must read series by this author.  She should really get into some TV series, maybe bring all the characters together, and talk about some major drama!
