Review Poetry: No Attachments by Tiffany King

No Attachments
** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations, language and mature subject matter **

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?

Recently I have been in a bit of a review slump, but today when I was thinking about another way to say just how awesome No Attachments was when this poem hit me.

My Review

No Attachments,
won't leave a dry eye,
it will certainly make you do an ugly snot cry.

It's a moving story,
this story about life,
it deals with grief, 
with struggle, with strife.

With characters so real
they come alive in your mind;

You have Ashton with pain so surreal,
who's hiding from something that's just too real.
And Nathan's just doing his job,
but finds delight within Ashton's hidden light.

These two have passion,
in all the right ways,
they spark,
they ignite,
brighter than a flame.
Making you catch your breath and quiver all over.

When things get too close and happiness is near
Ashton runs away in fear,
in order to save him from all of her pain.

Nathan pushes back,
will he be her salvation,
Make her want to win the fight?

That's No Attachments
a story about life.

So if you haven't already figured it out, I recommend this book with a resounding hell yes! 

"'You mean you love that I have the dating skills of a baboon?" she mocked. "Me monkey, I like you, can I climb you?" she added, laughing halfway through her speech.'" (Kindle, loc. 2605).

I believe that this moment really needs no explanation. But if you do, it is hilarious, just love the sexual tension between these two. They throw sparks when they are together.
