Blog Tour: No Attachments by Tiffany King; an excerpt & giveaway!

Posted May 7, 2013 by Holly in Blog Tour, Reviews, Teasers / 2 Comments

 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?

“Maybe we can work out a side deal,” I said, resting my arm on the back of the seat so my fingers were close to the back of her neck without actually touching her. I bit back a smile when I saw a shudder of awareness ripple through her frame.
“What do you have in mind?” she asked, flipping the heat on as she whipped a U-turn in the middle of the road.
“Why don’t you let me take you out to dinner and we can work out the particulars?” I answered, trailing my finger along the fine hair on her neck that had escaped the cute ponytail she wore on top of her head.
“There’s not a whole lot of dining choices in Woodfalls unless you don’t mind the diner. The better restaurants are in the next town, like twenty-five minutes away,” she said, leaning back against my hand that was now cupping her neck. I went instantly hard from the sigh of pleasure that escaped her mouth as I gently massaged her neck.
“Let me worry about dinner,” I murmured, dipping my finger down the neckline of her shirt as she pulled her car into the parking lot of my motel. She switched off the car, but neither of us moved.
“This is crazy. We don’t even know each other,” she finally said hoarsely, cluing me in that she was as turned on as I was. Although, judging by her death grip on the steering wheel, she was trying to fight it.
“Go out with me and we’ll get to know each other,” I coaxed, sliding my hand farther down the back of her shirt. I watched as she gnawed on her bottom lip indecisively. I was more jealous of a set of teeth than I could have ever imagined possible. I wanted it to be my teeth that gently nipped on her lip. “Are you still worried I want to stick my trunk in your head,” I teased softly, trying to lighten the tension radiating off her.
“I’m not looking for a serious relationship,” she mumbled.
“Let me get this straight. You’re fine going out with me, but you just don’t want me to get attached?” I asked, laughing at the irony of the situation. “Sweetheart, I have a strict rule about attachments, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun getting to know each other. Besides, I’ll only be here a week or so.”
“You won’t fall in love with me?” she asked earnestly. Had the situation been different, I would have busted a gut at her question.
“I promise I won’t fall in love with you,” I said solemnly since she seemed so serious.
“How about if I promise I only plan to use you for sex?” I joked.
“That would help,” she said, nodding her head in total agreement.
“You know this conversation is kind of messed up,” I teased, trailing my hand a little farther down.
“I’m pretty sure everything we’ve done up to this point is messed up,” she said, finally relaxing. “We might as well stay consistent.”
“So, let me get this straight since I tend to look at things a bit analytically. It’s okay if we date, but even better if I decide I want to ravish your body to my heart’s content, and then walk away when I’m done?” I questioned.
“Exactly,” she said, shivering slightly as my hand continued exploring.
“I’ll pick you up at seven,” I said, pulling her toward me. I settled my lips against hers for a moment, devouring the sigh of surprise that left her mouth. I pulled the lip that had been enticing me into my mouth and gave it a soft nip with my teeth. It tasted faintly like a combination of cherry lip gloss and minty mouthwash, but it was the heat that beckoned me. I could have made a feast of her lips and mouth. I wanted to explore every inch of them. After a moment, I forced myself to pull away and open my car door.
Her eyes looked at me questionably as I stood outside her car. “Sorry, you’re bottom lip was driving me nuts. I had to see if it tasted as good as it looks,” I explained.
“Well?” she asked exasperated as I started to close the door.
“Sweetheart, it tasted better than my wildest fantasies could have ever conjured up,” I said, closing the door to her astonished face.
