(ARC) Book Review (469): Nova And Quinton: No Regrets (Nova #3) - Jessica Sorensen

Nova and Quinton: No Regrets (Nova #3)

Buy It: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
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?
My Thoughts.
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.

I give this 4/5 stars.
