No Attachments by Tiffany King is hot off the presses this week! It’s a New Adult contemporary about hope, love and trust by the author of several YA books including the Saving Angels series and Miss Me Not.
Check out the synopsis of No Attachments:
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?
I read this book over a couple of hours during the recent read-a-thon, and it’s a fast-paced read with personality. It starts off fun and silly, but has a little Nicholas-Sparks-type drama under the surface.
There is an air of mystery in the book. The protagonist Ashton is starting a new life, and checking items off a bucket list. But why is she living this new carefree life? And how does the guy from the bar Nathan fit into the plan? It’s interesting to see how this unlikely pair, each on their own mission, connect and explore a new path.
Ashton is a sweet, funny character and I liked that she had supportive friends and this new lease on life. We get to know Ashton and Nathan through dual POV as slowly the mystery comes to the surface. I was glad for the alternating perspectives because both characters have something to hide.
The dialogue is casual and sassy, and the book starts off on a kind of comedic note. As the story progresses though, it turns more heavy and dramatic. There is more going on than boy meets girl, though romance is absolutely a part of the story.
I think No Attachments will appeal to fans of New Adult contemporary that prefer a casual tone and a touch of melodrama. The storyline is not the same, but the book reminded me a little of Nicholas Sparks movies I’ve seen, such as The Last Song. It’s not really breaking new ground in the New Adult category but is a pleasant diversion nonetheless. If you are a fan of New Adult contemporary, I encourage you to check out a sample of the book to see if it’s a good fit for you.
No Attachments is a book you can easily read in one sitting, perhaps on a day at the beach.
