3 1/2 Stars


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.

My Review:

No Going Back is the second book in this series, Moving Forward being the first. I highly recommend reading Moving Forward first or you will be lost since No Going Back picks up where Moving Forward left off.

I enjoyed this book for the most part. There were some grammar issues and the writing style wasn't my favorite but overall it was a good read. Seth and Mallory are two people who have grown up with huge issues of not feeling good enough. Both think they don't deserve any goodness in life and are willing to deal with the cards they are dealt. Right as Seth was about to try and smooth things over with Mallory his ex, Allison, shows up. She claims that she had his baby and gave it up for adoption and tries to con him into being with her by saying that if they are married, then they have a good chance to get their baby back. Seth knows in his heart that something is amiss but he doesn't want to chance it in case she is telling the truth. 

Once Seth learns the real deal he is livid. I wanted to strangle Allison for all the heartbreak she put both Seth and Mallory through. Justice is served in the end, thank goodness.

Seth, Seth, Seth...gah, I wanted to hug him, then punch him, then shake him to make him come to his senses, then about 60% through I wanted to hug him the rest of the time. Seth feels like he is only a  threat to Mallory and that she is better off without him in her life. So he goes on tour and back to his drunken rockstar ways trying to erase and not think about what he has left behind. Even though he knows it isn't working, he feels like its the best for Mallory if he isn't in her life. 

I hate the way Nick was treated but I am happy to see he is getting his own book and I hope he will find the happiness that he so deserves.

I love, love, loved, the relationship between Mallory and Jes. These two are what best friends are all about. No matter what kind of stupid decisions Mallory made, Jes told Mal what she thought and then supported her choice just wanting her best friend to be happy.

This book will make your emotions run all over the place but in the end their is a happy ending!

“Hey Seth,” she timidly says before letting out a shaky breath. “Okay, I’m just gonna lay it all on the line, and you can do what you want with it.” Fuck, she came to win me back. “First, me coming here was not my idea, but with that being said, I would have regretted it like a motherfucker if I didn’t try one last time because I think you’re worth the effort. I want you Seth. I want you more than I’ve ever wanted any other man — more than I ever will want any other man. You get me unlike anyone ever has. You know me…the real me. I know what we had was no strings attached, but dammit, I’m attached. I can’t help it Seth, but I fucking love you and knowing you’re about to marry that woman who emotionally fucked you up, kills me. It kills me Seth.”
