No Attachments Release Day Launch: Review & Giveaway

 


No Attachments
Author: Tiffany King
Publishser: A.T. Publishing LLC


Ashton Garrison walked away from a privileged life in order to hide from the one thing she's not willing to face. She knows she left behind a trail of pain, but in the long run, her betrayal will hurt less than the truth. She now has one goal: Live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. She has high hopes that a move to new surroundings will provide the escape she desires, but what Ashton doesn't count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan. Sometimes, when love comes knocking, the pull is too strong not to answer. Suddenly, what she thought she wanted to escape from is what Ashton now wants more than anything.

Nathan Lockton has one mission: find his target and complete the task he was hired to do—no attachments and no emotion necessary. He's done it over and over again. What he thought was a typical lost-and-found job has turned into a life examining moment as Nathan is forced to deal with something he has always ignored--his feelings. Now faced with a decision, Nathan must choose to either follow his heart or complete the job.

Love can come when you least expect it. The question is: If the odds are stacked against you, how far are you willing to go for the one you love?
***************************
No Attachments was a beautiful story about two people who weren't looking for love but somehow found it. They each had their reasons for wanting a no attachment arrangement but they definitely got more than they bargained for. 
I really liked Ashton as a female lead character. She had gone through so many trials and tribulations in her young life but she was determined not to let them overcome her. She decided to take life into her hands and make the most out of it. Nathan is a scorned man and I loved his charm and his witty sexual innuendos. He has no desire for a relationship but he is instantly intrigued by Ashton. I loved the interaction between them and how they could go blow for blow with their sexual banter. Ashton's friend, Trish, is a riot and I loved every word that came out of her mouth. She is super supportive of Ashton and a really good friend. I also loved Fran, Ashton's boss. She was the only person that knew why Ashton was really there and she was  protective of her like a mother. 
I really enjoyed the plot of this book. I loved the idea of two people who weren't looking for anything but a no strings attached sexual relationship but ended up finding love. It was obvious from the beginning why Ashton had run off and why Nathan was there. I found it refreshing that their was no underlying mystery and it was all about the connection building between Nathan and Ashton. It was so endearing when Nathan wouldn't give up on Ashton when she pushed him away. I loved the dual POV with Ashton and Nathan. I really like it when I get to see inside both minds. A male POV from a female author has to be done just right and the author really nailed it. It was a touching love story and I loved the epilogue. I think Tiffany King has made a great transition into adult romance writing and proven that she is a versatile writer.

Favorite Quote:
"Ordinarily, I would have scoffed at a man running without a shirt on, wondering what he was trying to prove. Nathan, though, was a different story with his glistening pecks and rock-hard abs. It would have been sinful to deprive the female population the opportunity to gawk." ~Ashton (No Attachments by Tiffany King)
