No Going Back
Author: Erika Ashby
Release Date: June 30, 2013
Genre: New Adult Romance/Erotica


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.

OMG where do I start with this No Going Back took you on a mess of a roller-coaster ride that had you spiraling out of control and feeling like you where going to fall off at any It was full of twists, turns, miss communications, secrets and meddling ex's. Just when you think everything is going to be alright then BAM something else happens and DAMN did I love every minute of it!! This review is not going to be very long because I don't want to give anything away but it is sooooooo worth running to get NOW!!

"There's no going back in time and fixing all the mistakes I made."

Mallory, damn I loved her. She is mouthy, sexy, fierce & not afraid to say what she thinks but deep down she is a little insecure & lonely because of everything that has happened. 

"I know he doesn't like brunettes. I also know the reason he got off so fast was because as he was pounding himself into your slutty shriveled twat, he was thinking about me. I also know that he fucked you from behind. Wanna know why he did that? Because you're nothing but a dirty little slut, and he didn't want to look at your face while he got off. Why don't you find yourself some self-respect and class sweetheart."

Seth damn you Seth why did you make me love Seth is a sexy, swoon worthy, broken, bad boy rocker that can't seem to escape from his past. I wanted to smack him and love him and lick him all at the same

"That's what I'm best at doing - running from anything that could possibly end up hurting me."

This book was full of OMG moments that kept me glued to the pages and on the edge of my seat. I couldn't get enough. I seriously neglected my family while I finished it and didn't move from my Erika really outdid herself with this one. The writing is superb and engaging and makes you feel like you are there with the characters and can feel everything they can.  I can't freakin wait to see what Erika has for us next. 


“Seth,” I moan. “I need you in me. I want you in me.” I can’t hide the desperation I have for him at this very moment. I might look weak, but right now I could care less. I don’t care if he knows how vulnerable I truly am. I’m not afraid to show him that side of me. Not now anyways. He’s already seen every side of me, every side that I’ve kept hidden from anyone and everyone. 

“Shhh.” He kisses his way up the center of my chest making his way to my neck. “This is what you need Mal. I’m going to show you what I feel for you by making you feel. Let me make you forget, just for tonight. Okay?” he breathes in my ear before parting my panties and pushing his finger inside where I want him most. 

“Oh god,” I pant as I arch my head back, pressing it deeper into the pillow. It is as if he’s reenergizing my body between my legs, and he keeps kissing me all over and licking me as if he’s trying to savor the taste of my skin. His other hand finds its way under my head while his lips make their journey back up my body once more. He licks his way up my neck, lifts my head up, and then swipes my parted lips with his tongue before lightly biting on my bottom lip and then sucking it into his mouth. This is the kinky Seth I know, but I have a feeling that’s as rough as he’ll get tonight. 

“Open your eyes,” he sweetly demands. “I want to watch you as I make you come. I want to feel your sweet pussy clenching around my fingers while I watch the way I make you feel etch its way across your beautiful face. I want to see what I do to you and afterwards I want to show you what you do to me.” 

He thrusts another finger in and I instinctively close my eyes. “Open.” 

I open them back up as he takes his thumb and starts working it in circles on my clit. I’m so close I can feel it, but at the same time I’m so consumed with what I see as I stare back into his ocean blue eyes. I can see so many emotions running through them — emotions I’ve never seen before.
