NOTICE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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?
In this final book in the series, I felt Quinton's struggles in my core. The flawless writing got into the nitty gritty of addiction, suicide, loss, and death - emotions/situations people deal with everyday. Jessica Sorensen makes them real, however. She brings those feelings close to home.
I also felt that I got a better look inside Nova's head in "No Regrets." She realizes that she can't save everyone - that she can't save anyone. Quinton has to save himself.
The entire series was wrought with emotion and may be too intense and "real" for some people. Although they aren't usually the type of books I gravitate towards, as I have my own issues with depression and suicidal tendencies, I read this one from start to finish. I highly recommend the series if you are okay with knowing you may be triggered along the way.
