No Going Back by Erika Ashby ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway


Life isn’t always about fairy tales 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.



No kidding this story is not about a fairytale love story.....Lots of angst and pure madness.  This book begins where "Moving Forward" ended.  So I would suggest you read that book first to understand Mallory and Seth's story.  And what a crazy messed up story they have. 

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

Mallory and Seth are two broken people who have so many issues and walls to break through that brings so much angst to their crazy relationship.  At the end of "Moving Forward", Mallory finds out she is pregnant with Seth's baby and is going to tell him at her best friend Jesika and Derek's wedding.  Seth and Mallory were hoping they could work on bringing their lives back together.  But BAM!  SH_T HAPPENS!  Seth's ex-love of his life - well at one time he thought so - she reappears.  Allison, is the one who broke him leaving him the scorned man he has become.  After Seth's band becomes more famous, Allison wants to take part in his fame.  Even if that means telling lies and doing really bad things.  Not only does she reappear causing havoc but also causing total destruction.  This destruction is the break up of Mallory and Seth and many other BAD THINGS!

So after Seth had chosen Allison for reasons that he is not sure are the truth or just more Allison lies but feels he has an obligation to at least try to believe her.  So at Jesika and Derek's wedding Allison drops the ugly bomb leaving Mallory no other choice than to not tell Seth she is pregnant with his child.  Mallory has had to rely only on herself and now more so than ever.  Seth and Mallory have broken pasts and now with their new challenges they have to learn to forgive and move forward. 

"It breaks my heart and melts it at the same time.  He's had it rough and so have I.  I know that together, we make each other stronger, and that I can face anything with him by my side."

There are so many twist and turns and so much angst leaving you mentally exhausted.  Just the kind of book I love.

Awesome job Erika Ashby!
