Erika Ashby's NO GOING BACK blog tour with Review & Giveaway

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.

“What’s this guy’s name you ask? It’s called the Teeter Totter. Now this lil puppy is a battery operated tease on steroids...meaning one minute it will have you screaming its name, about to come your brains out, then the next minute it pulls back just enough to keep you from going over the edge. Tricky little fucker if I do say so myself.” She smirks.
     “Who comes up with these names?” I ask as I pass the Teeter Totter over to Jesika. She’s finally starting to loosen up and actually taking the time to inspect the toys as we play show and tell with them.

     Holly just shrugs. “No fucking clue Mal. But they’re pretty genius. And for all you twats that are too shy to wave your pride and joy pleasure mobile around for everyone to see because you want your kinky ways to go unknown and your boring missionary status sex life that you lead everyone to believe you have, when in reality you want nothing more than to be a freak between the sheets, we have the small, compact and very durable Dazzler. It's guaranteed to bedazzle your clit into oblivion.”

    I watch Jesika as the realization of that being the toy I had bought her registers on her face. “This is it,” she mouths. I nod and she blushes.

    “Oh, and last but certainly not least – The Unforeseen Cliffhanger. The Wicked Cliffy as I like to call it. We have this sort of love hate relationship. It feels so good. You think you have plenty of time to take in all the goodness it makes you feel...then BAM. It's over. You're coming undone before you even got to experience the full buildup. It definitely leaves you crying like a baby in a fetal position screaming WHY? But at the same time saying thank you...you rocked my world and I need more NOW.”

 Clare's Review: 

Oh I want more of this book. This whole series is all connected and twisted and I just want everyone to figure it out and be happy! This is Book 2 in the Timing is Everything series and I loved it. Seth is a hot, tattooed rocker and Mallory is an unapologetically sexy chick. These are two people who are fucked up in a lot of the same ways, avoiding everything hard and uncomfortable, and that just works against them. They want each other but only in the right circumstances. Except those circumstances keep fucking with them! Apparently everyone feels the need to be noble and honorable. Basically, I alternated between wanted to nut punch Seth and lick his tattoos. (Licking usually wins out, but still.) I was thrown at first by the give and take between our two lead characters. I felt like I'd be less forgiving and way less cool than Mallory. But as the story unfolds, you see them coming to grips with their own shit and that let's them actually function as a true couple. Because they have so many of the same issues, they understand the other's actions without the need to hash and rehash and beat a dead fucking horse. I love this. Then they have kick ass sex. No way around it. I might have had an orgasm every time Mallory did from the dialogue alone! And I'm seriously rethinking all sorts of piercings now. Holy shit. Their witty banter in and out of the bedroom reels me in. I love when they go after what they want with no shame. It's fucking hot. And it leaves me wanting more! I can't wait for the next in this series to learn everyone's secrets!

Wendy's Review:

Erika, Erika, Erika.....Once again chick you have given me a jawbreaking read. The humor, angst, sexual tension and all around appeal of this book is WONDER-MOUS!!! 
I fucking love Seth!!! Dear God talk about sprinkles in your panties hot. He's a musician with tats. Hell yeah!!! And, Mallory. It's not very often that you find yourself so engrossed with a character's personality. I love love LOVE this girl. She's feisty and  sensual and everything most girls only hope to be. Her spunk and attitude, while waver on occasion, she's always a fighter, and I can't get over her mouth. 
So the issues in this story are a little intense and had me biting my nails but that's how I knew it was good. No! better then good. No Going Back is a GREAT story.  And, because we're talking about Erika's book, you know the sex is gonna be told in explicit detail. I LOVE THAT!! Give me the dirrrttiest sex scenes in full detail, and I will praise the fuck out of your book. Seth and Mallory were lighting MY sheets on fire. 
Besides the fact that these two have a shit ton of crap to work out, they've also got to learn to trust each other again. 
I'm a sucker for a good second chance romance and I was cheering and hollering for Seth and Mallory to work it out the entire time. Their road isn't easy and it's far from perfect, but the ride is a blast. 
I give this book 5 stars! Definitely enjoyed it.
