Book Review: No Attachments (Woodfalls Girls #1) by Tiffany King

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: August 5, 2014
Publisher: Berkeley Trade
304 Pages

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?

Have a one-night stand steamy affair with no attachments – check (kinda).

Meet Ashton, a girl literally running from her past, who just wants to live and check things off of her to-do list of sorts. Conquer a fear, go canoeing, have a one-night stand, those sorts of things. When she sees Nathan at a local bar, she believes that she’s found her one time lover. What she doesn’t know is that Nathan knows who she is and was actually paid to track her down for a client. Once they meet, they are immediately taken with each other. Ashton decides she wants a steamy affair instead of a one-night stand and Nathan decides he just needs more of her before he turns her over to his client. A no attachment deal is struck. And we all know how those turn out…

The mystery of why Ashton ran from her past kept me highly intrigued for most of the book (until I figured it out). I liked her determination and she was funny. It took more time for me to warm up to Nathan. He was obviously lying to her from the beginning, and while she lied about parts of her past, I felt his lie held more weight. He had to work for my approval, but, not going to lie, by the end of the book, he had it. 

This was my second King book (I actually read the second in this series first) and I enjoy her writing. It’s relatable and the characters are likeable. Looking forward to the third book in this series. 
I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in return for an honest review.
