Forgiveness. If only more people could do it. Then maybe there’d be less pain in the world.

Jessica Sorensen is the queen of hitting me right in the feels. Every. Single. Time. Has she written a book I haven’t cried while reading? I don’t think so. She is one of my go to authors. I love her broken characters and heart wrenching stories. Quinton and Nova’s story has been difficult and painful to read. This one had it’s moments, but overall it wasn’t as devastating

4 Healing Stars

I have a love and hate relationship with Jessica Sorensen books. I love her books, but I hate the way it makes me feel. I feel a lot when I read her books and it makes me into a hair-pulling mess, but at the end of it, I kind of like it.

I’m crazy, but I can’t help myself.

It’s the third Quinton and Nova book and wow, what did just happen? After EVERYTHING Nova tried to do, Quinton fell off the deep end.

I was an emotional wreck after I finished Saving Quinton. I just needed some ti

I feel like I've been waiting to love this series since I started it. The writing is undeniably good, the author's passion for the subject matter obvious, the message clear and noble. But I feel a little misled with regards to expectations of what the series is about. Maybe it was simply the covers, or the titles and the covers. But I expected romance.

For me, this was more of a series about drug addiction than anything. It was brutal and honest and pulls no punches at times. Book one not as mu

”I hope one day I can be okay with everything and so can you.”

I loved the first two books of this series because they were so brutally real and I just LOVE Quinton and Nova. Unfortunately, this last book just didn't do it for me.

I expected this story to showcase Quinton’s struggles once released from rehab but I didn’t realize that it would be LEXI driven for the whole darn book! Let’s face it from what I got from that last two books I felt that she may have been cheating on him or
It started a little slow, and its Jessica Sorensen, so my expectations are always very high. But, given what this story is about, it understandable that it had to be portrayed this way.

Hello there Quinton,

First of all my heart went to Quinton, I felt his struggles and feelings as if they were my own. Jessica's flawless writing always manages to stir emotions I didn't even know existed. Some parts were very hard to read because they made me realize just how lucky I am. This stuff is real, addic

God, I need this series to end on a happier note.

Now that I've read it, I am very happy it did. Lots of angst, but also some joy as well.

Nova and Quinton: No Regrets has been sitting in my kindle for quite some time. A part of me wanted to read this book as soon possible and another part of me was a bit apprehensive since Saving Quinton left me emotionally drained and wrecked. If you have ever read a Jessica Sorensen book then you know this author has a gifted talent of making her readers FEEL. Feel every range of emotions from heartbreak, anger, loss, regret, guilt, and love. So when I finally decided to continue on

*wipes tears away*

What a wonderful conclusion to Nova and Quinton's heartbreakingly beautiful journey of healing and self-discovery. I'm a bit mentally and emotionally drained since I just read all 3 books in like, 3 days? Wow, what a record for me. But once I was sucked into Quinton and Nova's world, I could not climb out of it. They consumed me and I simply loved every dark and twisted moment spent with them. That's the effect Jessica's books have on me. I'm so glad I finally got to these book

Here is a TEASER for No Regrets:

You know what I think? I think we need a fun teaser for Nova and Quinton: No Regrets, which comes out on ebook April 15 and is up for preorder now Enjoy!

Blah! No Regrets disappointed me! Nova and Quinton were both a bit too emo and all the "poor me, life is hard" stuff bothered me.

First Thoughts

I honestly hate to say this, but I didn't enjoy No Regrets. Nova had always kind of irritated me with her save-the-world complex and rambling emo nonsense into her video camera, but Quinton-- he had always captivated me. Watching the good guy he once was spiral out of control via an addiction to meth and heroin killed me. I w

"You give me hope, Nova Reed. Hope that even though life is really, really hard – even if it fucking sucks sometimes – that it’s worth living."

Quinton is finally getting clean, saved by Nova, like the car. Fresh out of rehab, he has a long way to go before he can really free himself of the guilt of his past and learn that he deserves to have a future.

Nova, stuck a state away from the boy that she wanted to save – the one that she thought could make up for the one that she couldn’t.... c

Ugh, I can't believe the whirlwind journey I've been on with all three of these books (Breaking Nova, Saving Quinton and now Nova & Quinton: No Regrets). I've lost sleep and it was totally worth it.

if you've not read the other two books in the series STOP READING NOW!

In this book Quinton is finally clean and he's trying to figure out what the hell to do now. Every emotion, every thought, every memory is raw and causes him so much pain. Getting sober was the easy part for him it's living life an
Jessica's Book Review
Nova and Quinton: No Regrets is the third in the Nova series and the final book for Nova and Quinton. If you have read my reviews for the first two books in the series Breaking Nova and Saving Quinton you would know how in love I am with these two very, very…. Very…. broken characters.

Nova and Quinton: No Regrets take place shortly after where book two, Saving Quinton left off. Beware spoilers if you have not read the first two books in the series.

4.5 hearts!

The "Nova" series is exactly why I love Jessica Sorensen. Every time I start a new series from her, my book crush grows to ridiculous heights. She makes you feel so many feels. Her characters are so flawed, yet so beautifully written that you truly believe they are real and want to find them and make their lives better.

In true Jessica fashion, this series is a dark and heart crushing at times read. How she continues to write these characters that have such tragic lives but somehow f

So I just finished this after waiting for months & I must say...well worth the wait! I cannot say how much I loved this. The way the emotions played out were just so raw and real. I was right there with Nova and Quinton the whole way. What a journey!

I am truly amazed with how brilliantly poignant and gorgeously compelling, Jessica Sorensen is able to realistically portray the open brokenness and painful lives of these beautiful characters that she so lovingly writes about in her Nova series. With every single book, including the novellas, I find myself becoming more and more entranced with these stories and wrapped up in these characters lives as if they are my own. They are stunningly gripping and full of misplaced trust, life altering sit ...more

Nova and Quinton: No Regrets starts up at the moment Quinton is about to start his new life sober. Although scared, confused and uncertain of what is about to come, Quinton is still determined to make something of his new beginning. He is set to move in with his father and although he is armed with the tools he learned in rehab to deal with his emotions and difficult moments, he still can't wrap his mind around being back home with his father and where all his problems began. Thankfully, he keep ...more

Any time I pick up a book from Jessica Sorensen, I know I’m in for a treat! That’s just what I got with Nova and Quinton: No Regrets.

I had a lot of expectations when I picked up this book, because after over six hundred pages with them, I’d really become invested in Nova and Quinton getting some sort of resolution. My expectations were surpassed!

First, I must admit two things: I am not typically a reader of the romance genre and I am a Firstreads Giveaway Winner, hence this review. The cover of this book caught me and is probably the main reason I entered the Goodreads Giveaway contest, yet the cover is quite misleading. This really isn't a romance although it is strangely romantic and addictive. However, it's more of a recovery story about Quinton trying to overcome addiction and survive sobriety. Although there is very little plot, se ...more

Alright so I pretty much cheated with this series. When I saw it, I assumed it was a new series, it wasn’t until I started reading it and I realized I was missing something.

There were apparently 3 whole books before this one. Whooops. The good thing is that this book was so well written that even without the prior knowledge I was able to catch up and still enjoy this book.

Quinton is our main guy and he has a hell of a lot of demons.
Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)

Nova and Quinton’s journey has been a long and dark one. If you’ve read Jessica Sorensen’s books in the past, you know that she isn’t afraid of going the dark route. The Nova series is by far the most darkest of all her books, but NOVA AND QUINTON: NO REGRETS finally pulls back the darkness that have weighed Nova and Quinton down and offers some light in their lives.

Although Nova plays a huge part in this novel, I feel that Quinton’s character really shines in this one. Quinton is trying des

Jessica Sorensen has a natural talent for writing and I appreciate knowing I will always get a solid novel full of rich detail from her. I love her naughty bad boys that can’t stay out of trouble and her intriguing storylines that completely captivate me. As soon as I start one of these precious gems, I am committing myself to an all day and night read-a-thon. Once I start, I cannot stop!

4.5 stars rounded up to 5. A wonderful conclusion to a very gritty, realistic, depressing and uplifting story about two people caught up in their own worlds of grief and pain and turning to drugs to help relieve that pain. In the first two books we find Nova escaping from the drug world with strength and determination and then turning that strength into saving Quinton from himself and that same drug world.

Lets start off by saying that I waited months for this book, so the buildup was INSANE! with that said, i was disappointed. It was a great story, but I expected more.

Quinton is clean! The story starts as he leaves rehab and heads back into the real world. He meets a new mentor who becomes his friend and helps him adjust back into the world and forgive himself. he has to learn to live with his second (or third) chance at life and not feel sorry for himself.
