Nova and Quinton: No Regrets by Jessica Sorensen

download
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?

Review: I've followed the series of Nova and Quinton from the very start and the third and final concluding book is just as amazing as the others. The love story is dark, complex and definitely not a traditional easy-going romance novel, but it's that grittiness that makes it all the more real. It's clear why all the characters begin their decent into drug use, which makes it all the more difficult to feel their struggle out of it and to deal with the ramifications of their behaviour. This is the perfect ending to such a series, it isn't over the top in tone or pace and each and every character gets a believable - if not always happy - finish. Perfect for readers wanting a unique love story.
