** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations, language and mature subject matter **

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?

One thing is for sure: I'd love to experience that bike ride too ♥.

It started with a bucket list. A one-night stand with a handsome stranger.

New in town but already gained herself some close friends and works in a store. The only one who knew her is Fran, the owner of the place she works in. Ashton has secrets.

It's not only her who has been keeping secrets. He has his own secrets as well. He shouldn't have wanted her. But he did, and he thought one night would be enough..

No Attachments seem to work for the both of them at first, but spending more time with each other, their attraction grew and suddenly one night wasn't just enough. 

But can a relationship built on secrets last long?

I enjoyed reading No Attachments considering this is my first book by Tiffany King. The cover got me so did the blurb. My efforts in reading were not wasted because at the end of the book, it was totally worth it. 

I love the two characters. Ashton for her courage in facing what life threw at her. I think her decision to leave for a while is understandable. Nathan, on the other hand, is the man I'd gladly introduce to family and friends. His patience and his loyalty is admirable. I doubt some men could wait that long and not stray. 

I also fell in love with Charles, Ashton's dad who stood by her when she needed him most and even played an unexpected matchmaker, considering the circumstances. 

Allow me to summarize No Attachments: Great story. Amazing Characters. Awesome read.

YES! YOU. SHOULD. READ. IT! (Without a doubt. I'm sure you'll enjoy the bike ride too!)

“There’s a time in everyone’s life when I’m sure they wonder if fate is actually some dude watching from beyond, just waiting for the right moment to fuck with us.” 

Sometimes life throws you a curveball and either you duck to avoid it, or you swing at it with all your might. 

Why is it such a bad thing that I've never had my heart broken?
