This is the third book in Jessica Sorensen's Nova series. You MUST read the first two books before you read this book. Everything builds throughout the series, so these books cannot be alone or out of order.
As always with this author, Nova and Quinton's love story oozes with angst, nearly too much but its all the more real for it. This book, however, has more of a finale feel where the angst has unfolded and they're coming to their HEA. Still, there were moments when readers will feel the need to shake the characters but there's also this incredible compassion that comes across in the author's voice as she deals head-on with the character's depression and recovery.
Much of the book is seeing past events from Quinton's POV and I wish there was more time devoted to their future together. Readers see most of their relationship transform over phone calls and texts - I would've liked more time with them together which really happened mostly in the epilogue.
From the beginning of the series, readers will be cheering for Nova and Quinton. You won't want to miss this if you've read the first two books. It's a sweet ending for two deserving young people.
Nova and Quinton: No Regrets (Nova #3) BLURB
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?
