Blog Tour & Giveaway: No Going Back by Erika Ashby

Available June 30th
Life isn’t always about fairytales and happily ever-after’s according to Seth Jordan. After having his world shattered and heartbroken beyond repair, he had always sworn off the idea of love. He was perfectly content with continuing his life with worthless one night stands and no strings attached sex. That was until one blue-eyed blonde managed to seep into places he thought were cemented shut. 

Like a jack hammer, Mallory Prentice came into Seth’s life and cracked the hard exterior that surrounded his heart. She’s the one woman he was starting to feel might be worth taking a chance on. 

But life doesn't always hand you the easy road. Sometimes you are constantly hit with the bad and have no hope of any good ever showing up. 

Will Seth and Mallory realize that ultimately they are the ones who are in control of their life’s outcome? Will they embrace the future and fight for their own happiness, or will they keep lingering in past mistakes and let it keep them apart? 

Life is all about forgiveness and second chances. Once you come to that conclusion and just go for it, there is…no going back

3.5 Hot For Seth Stars
Momma's Review:

* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This is the 2nd story in the Timing is Everything series.  You have to read the first book, Moving Forward, before you attempt to understand this one!

No Going Back is the story of Mallory and Seth, but I was excited that it also continued the story of Derek and Jessica from Moving Forward because I really liked them.  And not to mention.....Seth is freakin HOT!  I seriously laughed, cried, got angry, got happy, cried again and then giggled! 

 The story does cover a very long period of time, and at times feels like it was a bit jumpy in the amount of time it skipped over but I can see why the author did it to move the story along. No Going Back is a well written story! Normally I get worried when an author writes in Dual POV but Erika Ashby did a great job in getting both Mallory and Seth's story on paper and made it very easy to read


What can I say about Seth?  He's your classic lead singer, Rock Star, asshole!  He think he doesn't deserve to be happy so he continually pushes everyone important out of his life.  There were times that I wanted to hug him to make him feel better and times when I wanted to smack the shit out of him.


So I had a bit of a hard time with Mallory.  In the first book we only got a glimpse of the smart mouthed best friend but this time we get to see her in full force.  She's not a sweet demure little thing and tends to curse A LOT but if you just see that as who she is it totally fits.

I loved that we got to see Derek and Jesika as the BFFs this time!  They are always there for Mallory and Seth, no matter what happens and you can really see how they gently lead them to where they need to be!

Ok, so there were some really steamy parts in the book but this is where I was thrown off a bit.  There were things that the heroine and hero said during or after a really steamy moment that made me double take and think WTF!  While it may have been just the characters brash attitudes it was a bit of a mood changer and slightly confusing.

I recommend this book to anyone who's read Moving Forward!  It is a definite must read for anyone who loved Jesika and Derek.  I also recommend the series for anyone who loves a good romance story with a bit of steam mixed in!
