Review: Nova and Quinton: No Regrets (Nova #3) by Jessica Sorensen

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?
This is the third book in author, Jessica Sorensen's, series about Nova and Quinton, two young people who have been broken by death and drugs. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books and book three definitely wraps the series up nicely. Don't expect fairytales from Sorensen. She tells her stories with love and compassion, but also with gritty, brutal honesty. This is a series that teens should definitely read. Highlighting the effects of drug use: no appetite, body deterioration, indiscriminate sex, bad decisions, etc. She gets to the nitty-gritty of what drugs will do to you, but also shows how these young men and women got to this point. She also shows the struggles to detox and the harmful side-effects of drug use. However, Sorensen mixes this cautious tale in with a story of love and hope, forgiveness and redemption. Not every character is saved, sadly, but this is the hard life's lesson. Your choices not only effect you but those around you as well. An absolute 5 star!
