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?
No Attachments is a fantastic NA book with wonderful characters and beautiful writing. Ashton left her cushioned life to live in a small town. Nathan was hired by Ashton's father to find her. Usually Nathan does everything that he is supposed to when it comes to a job, but not this time. He felt something for Ashton right away. The two of them had an undeniable and steamy connection.
I really enjoyed both characters. I thought they were realistic and fleshed out nicely. I would have liked a little more about their pasts, but overall I was happy with what we did know. The only thing I couldn't stand was Nathan's overuse of "honey, sweets and sweetheart". I can't stand when guys say that after every sentence!
When we finally learn what Ashton's big secret was, and why she ran away from home, I couldn't believe it! So not what I was expecting at all. But I absolutely loved how Nathan handled it. I won't give any spoilers away, but I completely fell in love with him after Ashton left to take care of her *insert big secret here*. He completely broke my heart, and his speech to Ashton on the beach at the end, I completely died!
You seriously should read No Attachments. It's a good one and really is a different kind of NA story!
