Book Review - Nova and Quinton: No Regrets by Jessica Sorensen

ABOUT THE BOOK


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 had not read the previous books in this series, and while I was able to keep up in the book, I wish I had read the previous books first.   Based on how much I enjoyed the resolution to this story, I am immediately going to go back and read the books that built up to it.  I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed this book because I usually do not like angsty stories.  What I loved about this one is that is felt real.  These college aged kids were living in a world of drugs and more hurt than most people twice their age have had to deal with, but are trying to find a way to beat their pasts.  The progression of the relationship between Nova and Quinton is well done and feels very honest and genuine.  I recommend this book to anyone who loves a well written new adult story.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
