Hello everyone and happy
Jeez Louise has it been difficult to update this week. This post should have gone up yesterday but the internet was horrid and my mash-up Monday post for this week is being postponed for next week because of some errors loading the pictures for the recipe part of my post -_- moving on!
Another week gone and you might think I'm just being lazy again but I'm not - I swear!
I've been reading and reviewing for VampireBookClub.net. If you are big into almost anything paranormal, I definitely recommend checking them out. They have been my go-to for book recommendations for years :) So happy to be working with them! So far, I have reviewed Moon Called by Patricia Briggs and Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper.
I also have a blog post going up tomorrow at parajunkee.com on which trends I want to see next in book blogging.
Busy.. right? Just humor me, please. :)
On to the review!
Recently, I received a nice package in from the lovely ladies at Penguin Group - Berkley, NAL/Signet Romance, DAW. In this package, was this contemporary romance novel, No Attachments by Tiffany King.
**This copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review**
Ashton has left her hometown for Woodfalls, a small town on the opposite side of the country. Trying to run away from her past, she hopes that this escape will help protect her from the life she left behind.
Cue in Nathan, hired to locate the whereabouts of Ashton and report back to his boss on her exact location, he is also running away from painful past experiences.
Our two protagonists meet at the local bar in town thanks to Ashton's pushy (and likable) friends - Tressa and Brittni. Ashton and Nathan hit it off right away and are somewhat inseparable since then.
While they both have this "no attachments" rule where they pretend not to have feelings for each other and just focus on the sexual aspect of their "relationship", it is clear from their first encounter that there is more going on between them besides the physical.
The problem here is that both Ashton and Nathan have secrets they are hiding from each other. However close they get - both in and out of the bedroom - they both have their past hanging over their head, making them feel guilty and tarnishing the time they have together.
All in all, I thought the pace of the novel was pretty stable and trying to figure out Ashton's secret was an integral part in pushing me forward with the novel, flipping each page and wondering when she would spill the beans.
Honestly, I'm not much in to contemporary romances (if you couldn't already tell) and was worried that it was going to be difficult to get in to this novel and I really have been trying to read more contemporary lately. Luckily, I didn't have to push myself too hard to get into this story. It flowed easily and Ashton's secret and her connection with Nathan really did keep me interested until the very last page.
No Attachments is a quick, easy and sweet contemporary romance novel with just a dash of mystery. I think it is a perfect summer read and I am definitely looking for the next books in the Woodfalls Girls Trilogy.
