Overview

From the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of Saving Quinton comes a story about giving in to love-body and soul . . .

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?

Nova And Quinton: No Regrets brings to a close the story of Nova and Quinton, with this book focusing mostly on Quinton and his release from rehab, his struggle with sobriety, avoiding the temptation of drugs and the underlying fear of a relapse. Whilst the previous two books were quite dark and depressing, this book shows light at the end of the tunnel, not only for Quinton but Tristan too, faced with the outside world sober and having to deal with problems instead of getting high to forget them. The one thing I didn't like with this book was that Nova and Quinton didn't come face to face until towards the end of the book, and while I understand why that was, it was none the less disappointing, but when they did it was well worth the long wait. With Quinton just geting released from rehab and having to deal with emotions and life without dulling them down with drugs, he will need to overcome the guilt he has been feeling ever since the accident, the amount of blame he has placed on himself and to finally realise it wasn't his fault, having to also finally let go so he can move on with his life and possibly his future with Nova. Nova who is living in an apartment with Tristan and her best-friend Lea is having to deal with the more than friendly feelings that Tristan is feeling towards her, knowing and hoping that things will work out with Quinton and having her heart set on him and their future, she needs to find a way to let him down gently, not wanting him to fall back on his drug habit by the news. There is a sad and tragic death of a character that's been in the series right from the start, while it was shocking I can't say that I was surprised, and Nova finds herself to blame for not doing anything when she had the chance. All in all I really enjoyed the closure the book brought to Nova and Quinton's story arc, while these books were quite hard to get through at some points I'm glad I did read them, Jessica had found herself a new fan who will definitely be picking up her other books.

4 powerful, emotional, hopeful, healing stars! When I started reading the Nova series a couple of days ago, I had no idea that it would be such a heartbreaking reading journey. It was hard to catch my breath sometimes. My heart was broken for everything that Nova and Quinton had to go through. If you have not read the two previous books of this series, you might find some spoilers in this review. I highly suggest that you read Breaking Nova and Saving Quinton before you read this installment. This book picks up exactly where book two left off. Quinton is finally able to go home. He's been in rehab for his drug addiction and he now has to face the real world. One day at a time. His road to recovery is far from easy, but he's found the determination and courage to overcome some of the hardest obstacles that life has thrown his way. One thing that does not change and is still very present in his life his Nova's support. She has been a light in his life when the darkness was too much to handle. Every moment that they shared together is like a soothing balm to his soul. Being far away from Quinton is not easy. Nova knows that his recovery will take time, but she wants to be close to the man that has stolen her heart and her every thought. She's back in school and his living with her best friend Lea, and Quinton's cousin, Tristan. As days go by, Nova and Quinton start to reconnect again. Their daily phone conversations and texts bring them closer, but Quinton still has to fight the demons of his past every single day. Will he be able to let go of the past and give his heart to the person that made him feel alive again? Like I mentioned before, this was a heartbreaking journey. It was hard to see them go through such tragic events at their young age. Life has not been easy for them. I am so proud of the way they have both grown. Even if they are apart from each other for most of the book their connection to each other grew stronger and I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. My heart was beating fast and I was crossing my fingers that the past was in the past and that they could both start a new life together. The supporting cast of characters in this book was amazing! Wilson, Lea and Tristan were there for Nova and Quinton when they needed them the most. I loved how Wilson shared his story with Quinton. He made him see that life goes on and that you he had to let go of the guilt he was feeling. Nova had some stuff to deal with as well. She learned that she can't fix everything in life. Sometimes people make decisions that she might not understand, but that is their choice and there is nothing she could do or say that would change those decisions. This was a learning and healing journey for Nova and Quinton. Fighting against the darkness is never easy. It has a way to drag you down deeper if you even let go of the light for a split second. This was an emotional story to read and I learned a lot from both of these characters. It's not an easy story to read, but I am so glad that I gave this series a chance. Jessica Sorensen writing style is captivating. She made me feel all kinds of emotions while reading about Nova and Quinton. I give, Nova and Quinton: No Regrets, by Jessica Sorensen, 4 powerful, emotional, hopeful, healing stars!

The final book in the series did not disappoint. It continued in the journey of life on a winding road for Nova and Quinton bringing them to a final place of peace despite the heartbreak and loss of loved ones around them. I would have like to have had the author write in a glimpse into their future to see how far their faired in their struggles with life and sobriety.

   I wanted to read this one because I adored their first book, had my heart wrecked by the second and just had to find out if they could get their elusive HEA.      We are back to the dual perspectives and I am loving this healthy Quinton. He's brutally honest, and working so hard to stay clean. He knows that he's not ready for a relationship, but he and Nova text and talk on the phone all of the time. I love their interactions and how they transition from sexy, to funny to serious, to talking about nothing and back again. I get to see the best of them through the other's eyes and their happiness and being caught up in being in love.       I really appreciate that Quinton is putting staying sober above all things though, and I am still seeing growth in him but also in Nova. She is realizing just how much she loves to help others and starting to accept that some of the things that others think about her, that she is a joy, that she can bring out the best in others, and has a gift for seeing the best in others and not giving up on wanting to help them. She is considering a journalism project that would cause her to travel and its causing her a lot of stress and indecision because she wants to be around to help others, and weighing at what point she should make a decision for herself.      We see a lot of Tristan in this one. He is so hitting on Nova and she is trying to be blind to it, because she wants to be his friend and help him, but for her its Quinton, and no room for thoughts of other guys. He's sick and hiding things for part of it, and based on the prologue I had some suspicions, but then I saw on Jessica's site that he gets a book, so I don't know if I can be right, or if it will somehow work into the next storyline.      While this one still deals with a lot of hard stuff, and Nova is still working through seeing her late boyfriend's suicide and Quinton is dealing with the death of Lexi and Ryder and how to move on but still honor their memories and deal with the grief. I think its awesome that he's in therapy, going to a group about guilt and being a survivor from tragedies, as well as volunteering in the community. He is getting to put his focus on helping others while helping himself, and I think that is a great way to give back as well as help others in their dark times.      I flew through this one, and all the while reveling in the chemistry between Nova and Quinton and so rooting for them to be able to work it out and actually be in the same room together to get more of their scorching kisses and maybe more.      The ending managed to make me so happy, and really get the characters on their feet and make me happy. It was so realistic, and while nothing was magically perfect there was a promise that things could be amazing and a sense that they are ready for the next part of their lives, that as readers we aren't going to really be able to access, unless through Tristan's story.      Bottom Line: Realistic and emotional.

I'm usually not one for sappy love stories, but something about Quinton and Nova drew me in. Bravo to Jessica Sorenson for this series; satisfying from beginning to end.

After reading the first two books, I was super excited about this one. It was good, but not great. I was expecting more romance out of these two. Still a great author and I'd recommend reading all her books.

4.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Nova and Quinton’s journey has been a long and dark one. If you’ve read Jessica Sorensen’s books in the past, you know that she isn’t afraid of going the dark route. The Nova series is by far the most darkest of all her books, but NOVA AND QUINTON: NO REGRETS finally pulls back the darkness that have weighed Nova and Quinton down and offers some light in their lives. Although Nova plays a huge part in this novel, I feel that Quinton’s character really shines in this one. Quinton is trying desperately to stay sober, stay away from his drugs and keep his life back on track. Living with his father helps as does working with therapist to help him keep on track. However, he still harbours this intense guilt that doesn’t ever truly go away. His pictures of Lexi still remain tacked on his wall, an ever-present reminder of the fatal mistake he made. Although he still doesn’t believe he is worthy enough to be happy, he finds some of that happiness in Nova. Nova has always had a big heart. She is always trying to help others out of their dark situation and although it’s an endearing quality that I have to admire, it also takes a toll on her. It’s both a blessing and a curse to feel so much for other people and you really see her struggle with that in this book. Nova becomes part of a band and while I thought this was unique, the band problems they had sort of impeded the natural flow of the story. I know it was meant to add another problem to Nova’s life, but at the same time, I feel like she has endured a lot already, there wasn’t a great need to add that. Tristan’s character intrigued me in this one. Sorensen reveals something about his character that totally wrenches my heart in two. While he tries so hard to stay clean, you can tell that temptation is knocking on his door, hoping to get in. I’m interested to know what Sorensen will do with Tristan next! Lastly, there is Delilah’s character that needs to be mentioned. I believe it is imperative for readers to read Delilah: The Making of Red, a short story outlining some details about Delilah before this book because it will change how you see her. I definitely felt more sympathetic to her character. NOVA AND QUINTON: NO REGRETS is a story about healing, hope and recovery. Beautiful in its simplicity, Sorensen evokes deep-rooted emotion that will make every reader rejoice at the recovery that Nova and Quinton make. *ARC provided by publisher

What an emotional ride Quinton and Nova have been on. It keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire book as you cheer for their lives to overcome their past struggles. The quote says it all "For everyone who has suffered loss and learned how to live again." This is not a story of hearts and flowers but of struggle and pain. Thank God it had a HEA, otherwise it would have broke my heart.

This is not a traditional romance.  This was an intense read- a perfect ending to the series.  Still so much healing that needs to be done.  Truly having to make the choice to move forward every day, every hour and every minute.  Trust and forgiveness are key.  Letting go of the fear-of love, of being alone and of having a place and connection in the world. Loved dual POV.  The honesty and beauty- amidst all of the ugly- is a trademark throughout Nova and Quinton’s story.  How do you figure out how to find the strength to move on with all of the pain and loss? This story sheds a little light on how difficult that journey can be…also providing a glimmer of hope.
