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?

    End of a Rollercoaster.

    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,

       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.

    Great book!

    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.

    It was ok, but not great.

    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.

    ~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.

    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.

    The Way I See It Okay so I was pretty afraid of this book, like

    The Way I See It

    Okay so I was pretty afraid of this book, like terrified of reading it. Why? Well you know those really annoying people that get lost and all giddy looking at pictures of kittens doing adorable things? Yea thats me…I’m not even a cat person but they are just too cute…Well thats how I look at life so reading dark and tragic books scare my sensitive little heart. The previous two books were depressing and full of agony. I was committed and I really wanted things to be different for Nova and Quinton, so I knew I had to keep on truckin. It wasn't sunshine and daisies but there was a lot of hope. After everything these two have gone through it was nice to see them doing things that made them happy. This series was definitely not an easy read but so very worth it. Everyone deserves happiness, second chances and faith. 

    N-ormalcy, Nova adapts to a routine and finds solace amongst her friends. 
    O-pportunity, returning home was not something Quinton ever saw for himself. His father has made many mistakes he is trying to make up for the things from the past. 
    V-ulnerable, Tristan has committed to this new life. The more time he spends with Nova the more his heart opens up to certain possibilities. 
    A-voidance, Lea has always been there for Nova but recently she has become very secrative. 

    A-ccountable, Quinton faces his emotions daily but lives in fear of his demons from the past. 
    N-umb, the drugs have always muted everything around them Quinton doesn’t know if he is strong enough to deal with the pain. 
    D-istraction, everyone tells Quinton everything will be fine in an effort to keep his hunger at bay he learns to occupy his time wisely. 

    Q-uirks, Tristan has changed from the person who lived in Vegas and his bond is growing with Nova. 
    U-nited, Nova, Lea, and Tristan, do things together and keep each other out of dark places. 
    I-ndependent, Nova wants to help people she has always had a large capacity of compassion. By helping people heal Nova heals herself. 
    N-ights, doing what she loves Nova wants to make music and a part of her dream come true. 
    T-rust, Tristan starts to cross certain lines Nova is not ready for but he is so fragile Nova worries about breaking him. 
    O-bligation, Lea has been there for Nova and the time has come for her to return the favor. 
    N-arcotics, Tristan has been acting erratically he pushes Nova too far and the only thing she knows to do is run. 

    N-oose, life has been pushing Quinton down and the only thing that quells the noise is Nova. 
    O-ptions, Quinton is being forced to move knowing thats not the right choice for him he will open up to the last person imaginable. 

    R-ealization, the only person who can ever make Nova happy is Quinton. She is tired of missed opportunities and wont make the same mistake again. 
    E-scape, once in each others arms nothing else matters, the world stops moving. 
    G-uilt, the monster that looms over Quinton with help little by little he will fight to chip away the pain. 
    R-emorse, Nova tries so hard but it seems to never be enough. Death surrounds her and threatens to break everything she has built. 
    E-xpectations, Nova realizes something along with Quinton these two decide to pursue their happiness. 
    T-rust, things are not easy but together these two will make it through finding happiness can come from the most amazing places. 
    S-pecial, nothing has been the same from the moment these two met each other. The world is still unknown and scary but with help from their bond they are no longer afraid. 

    This was a really good book even though there were some obtw’s that weren’t tied up…I’m curious to see if they ever will or if its something that will be left up in the air. I think the resounding message is where there is hope there is light and anyone who is willing to fight can step away from the darkness. 

    My Fav’s 
    Nova 
    Her heart is amazing and yet she is insecure, through it all she remains normaI. I love that she wants to help people and I enjoy the way that she does it. Nova has a quirky personality that people can’t help but fall in love with. She kept everything together even when she could hardly stand. I love her personality and I’m happy she was able to pursue her dreams. 

    My Rating

    3.5 Rehab, Idaho, Anchorman, Restaurant, Twister, Vintage Glasses, Airport, Seattle, Caress, Phone Call, Hepatitis C, Death, Documentary, Habitat for Humanity, Heart felt promise of love filled stars! For a brokenly beautiful NA pick this one up.
