No Attachments by Tiffany King
NA Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: April 28, 2013
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?
** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations, language and mature subject matter **

I was joking around with Tiffany on Twitter while putting this post together, saying that I'm going to make a separate post for my favorite quotes, since I highlighted half the book. Here are a couple fun ones!
The moment I entered the bar, I seemed to ignore every rule I'd ever set. My rules were simple enough that a fucking two-year old could follow them.
"Well, shit," I grumbled when I found myself flat on my back at his feet. Would there be no end to embarrassing myself in front of him?
If I'd had any thoughts that his voice only sounded sinful the night before because of the amount of alcohol I had consumed, I was delusional.
I felt more in control once I had the plan worked out in my head, despite the small voice that told me I was full of shit.
I'll admit that I haven't read a lot of New Adult novels yet. I also need to be honest here - No Attachments was my first Tiffany King read. It will not, however, be my last. I had already bought a couple of her others, but hadn't gotten to them yet.
When the opportunity to read and review No Attachments came, I decided to give it a try. I AM NOT SORRY AT ALL. Yes, that required emphasis. I could write pages and pages about how much I loved this book, but it would take days. So I'm just going to ramble a bit. :) No Attachments is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a contemporary romance with strong, spunky characters.
Ashton Garrison has moved to Woodfalls, a small town where everybody knows everybody else. In this town, she can start over after leaving her old life behind. Ash has a list of things that she'd like to do someday, and with the new start she decides there's no time like the present.
Nathan Lockton has a job to do. Get in, do the job, get out. Nothing else needs to be done. No emotion, no attachments. It's just another job.
Ashton wants a one night stand with no attachments and no regrets. From the moment she and her friends start talking in the bar, I was hooked. Once Ash approaches Nathan, the fun really begins. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to look at a trunk the same way again. :)
Tiffany King does a wonderful job telling the story from alternating viewpoints. We get the opportunity to see where both Ashton and Nathan are coming from. Ashton is running from something (not telling!) and Nathan has a job to do.
While the reader is aware of some things almost immediately, there are still others that are expanded on throughout the story. As each chapter flies by, we learn more and more about these wonderful people. I started No Attachments late evening on a Sunday, and did not stop until I reached the end around 2 AM. I was not going to sleep until I finished this amazing story.
I became so wrapped up with these fascinating characters that I didn't want this story to end. I would go to Woodfalls to hang out with Ashton and the girls, maybe have a double date with Nathan and Ashton. Perhaps my guy could pick up a few pointers. :) And I can totally relate to Ashton's feelings and reactions the morning after the bar - been there, almost did that.
There are so many great scenes in this book, but I don't want to say too much here, so here are a few words for you: snow, picnic, canoe, bar, darts, trunk, kitty...yeah. That's enough of a teaser!
I have to give a shout out to Fran. Every small town I've ever been in has a Fran, and Tiffany King wrote her well. Ashton's best friends are also a lot of fun, as are others in the town. Every single character has a voice of their own, and that's another thing I loved about No Attachments.
But this is truly Ashton and Nathan's story, and it's told to perfection. At times I smiled, laughed, and cheered. At others, I groaned, bitched, and yelled. There were times I sobbed - some happy tears, some sad ones. I highly recommend reading this when you have open time because you won't want to put it down. I also suggest having a box of tissues close by...you're going to need it.
