Ashton Garrison walked away from her current life to escape the one thing she’s unwilling to face. She knows her decision may be selfish, but in the end, leaving will be far less painful for everyone. Now she has one goal: live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. What Ashton doesn’t count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan.   Nathan Lockton specializes in locating a mark. He’s done it over and over again—no attachments and no emotion necessary. What he thought was a routine lost-and-found job has forced Nathan to deal with something he has always ignored—his feelings. He’s never fallen for a target, yet he’s never met anyone like Ashton. Now deep in a dilemma, Nathan must decide to follow his heart, or complete the job he was hired to do.   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?

My Thoughts
The Woodfalls Girls series is yet another I've read out of order. I began the series with the novella Cross Country Christmas, then went to book two, Misunderstandings. And now, here I am at book one, No Attachments. Each book can easily be read as a standalone, but I'm glad to know how it all begins.
No Attachments is a sweet love story, that begins with secrets and lies. Ashton's and Nathan's secrets weren't awful, but it's hard to get ahead of these things once they start, nevermind trying to gain trust. Ashton is a girl who seems to be running from her past. But it's obvious that she's not running from trouble, but more like something she doesn't want to face yet. A friend inadvertently told me what her secret was, but I would have guessed anyway. Nathan's too. I understood where both were coming from, and wanted them to reach for that happy ending.
Because I've read Misunderstandings, I knew Ashton's friends Britni and Tressa. Britni was even more fun in this book, and Tressa was a riot. I'm really looking forward to her upcoming story, Contradictions. I can only imagine what she's going to do or say once she's center stage.
What I found in No Attachments is a story that I've come to expect from author Tiffany King. You get a heroine with a lot of spirit and snark, really good guys, and a love story that doesn't break any new barriers, but is really endearing and heartfelt. I think that's a nice combination.

Favorite Quotes
  "Aren't small-town girl supposed to have a higher sense of morals or something?"
  "Honey, it's Sunday. Do you see me at any kind of church? Nope. My lack of morals was exposed many years ago. That and the fact that I may or may not have corrupted some of the boys when I was younger may have me on the 'we need to pray for her soul' list at all three churches in town."
  "Oh, you're naked," she said, stating the obvious as her eyes darted to my morning companion.
  "Yeah, we sort of went to bed that way," I teased, watching as a delicate shade of pink crept up her neck, staining her cheeks. "Does it make you uncomfortable?" I asked.
  "What? No, it's just like, you know, 'Ta-Da. Here I am.' It threw me off."

  1. I'm glad you liked this one. I'm a big fan and this is one of my favorites!

  2. I still feel bad for spoiling this, Andrea! I'm glad it didn't ruin the story and I'm happy to hear you probably would've guessed the secret anyhow. Phew! Next time, my lips are sealed! Great review. :)

  3. Sounds like a good series so far. Sometimes you just need to read those romances that do not break grounds but just give you those good feelings.
    Thanks for the great review!

  4. I'm dumb. I requested this one not realizing that I already read it last year when it was self pubbed. The pretty new cover tricked me! #bloggerfail
    I'm glad you liked it!

  5. I think I read Cross Country Christmas too. (How sad is it that I have n idea what I've read anymore?? lol)

    Sounds really sweet.
