I can't believe I read this even till the 60% mark. The hero is a total manwhore who claims to love the h but will gladly put his dick in any willing woman with a skirt. The ex that he almost married...whom he claimed to hate, he slept with her too. (MINUTES after rejecting the h who had come to try and change his mind one last time on his wedding day). And what does he excuse this with? That he is a man and men have needs. OH MY GOD! I am so freaking angry! And moreso because this is what the a ...more

FINALLY after savoring every word.. after taking my sweet time, I have finished NGB


We met Seth and Mallory in MOFO and I had NO doubt their story would be nothing short of fan-freaking-tastic..
#1- Seth is a badboy tattood rocker.. HELLO
#2-Mallory is the girl you want to know.. she's hilarious, beautiful, and I connected with her immediately in MoFo
#3- I LOVE ROCKERS. (did I mention that)

While I liked it, I didn't really love it. I think it's because of how it was written. Not to mention, the two protagonists came across as very immature. I really did feel bad for Nick. My heart went out for him. He didn't deserve what happened.

If you already read Moving Forward then you know Mallory Prentice is carrying Seth Jordan’s child. Only problem is, Seth doesn’t know it. She went to Jesika and Derek’s wedding with the plan on telling him, until she showed up. Allison, Seth’s wicked ex who vanished a few years before with a story she miscarried their baby.
Now Allison is back and plans to claim Seth as hers!

Erika Ashby has done it again folks. Not Going Back has been on amazing ride, it had emotions, suspense, & laughter. I thought I enjoyed Derek & Jesika's story was intense but my, my, my Seth & Mallory's story was so intense that I could feel the tension radiating off my kindle. I loss sleep because I could not put it down, Mallory was the spicy, fiery little lady who speaks her mind & never hold back how she's feeling and I totally love that about her character.

This book shakes you up right from the very start. Mallory and Seth are two people who everyone know should be together but are not...things or people keep getting in there way. Mallory goes to Seth's wedding to try to convince him not to marry Allison. She pours her heart out to him.

“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 i

I was soooo looking forward to No Going Back. Moving Forward was one of my favorites for a debut novel. Erika did not disappoint me in book two.

No Going Back is Seth and Mallory's story. Seth is Derek's rockstar brother from Moving Forward and Mallory is Jesika's best friend. These two....god how I love them but oh they so frustrate me at the same time. These two are their own worst enemies at

Where to start? Erika has outdone herself with this story. I thought I loved Moving Forward, but I fell even harder for Seth and Mal.
The story picks up pretty much where Moving Forward left off. Poor Mal and all the crap she had to go through.I love Seth, but damn. He put her through hell and back. I wish he would of asked more questions about Allison, maybe things would of ended differently. But, sadly, things do happen for a reason and I am so very happy everything turned out how it did. We g

Another great installment in the Timing is Everything series! I am usually skeptical about series' that have new couples in each book, because I always miss the old couples. But in the Timing is Everything series, we still get to read about the old couples along with the new, and they are lovely. We meet Seth and Mallory in Moving Forward. They are both connected t

I developed a major author crush on Erika Ashby after reading her debut novel Moving Forward. She really set the bar high for the Timing is Everything Series and I was nervous to find out if her sophomore novel, No Going Back, could rival the greatness of MoFo.

DISCLAIMER: Before you read No Going Back you MUST READ Moving Forward.

No Going Back picks up from the cliffhanger ending of Moving Forward (also known at MoFo) and continues on through the eyes of Mallory Prentice and Seth Jordan.

So for those that know me know that I was a huge fan of Seth from the first time we met him in Moving Forward. If you haven't read Moving Forward Book 1 in this series you will need to read it, it is the foundation for Seth and Mallory. So I fell in love with Seth before this book even came out and yes even with the Epilogue at the end I was still in love with this Rocker! I have a thing for the bad boys especially when they are singers in a band!!!!!

Holy Moly! No Going Back was one hell of a ride. This story is full of heartache, angst, and a whole lot of hotness. Seriously, I wasn’t sure if Erika could make me love Seth quite as much as I loved Derrick from Moving Forward but boy oh boy was I wrong! I fell head of heels for bad boy womanizer Seth. Now trust me when I say I didn’t love him the whole book – no I didn’t. There were time I wanted to punch him in the face but he redeemed himself and I was swooning and salivating over this man l ...more

No Going Back is Seth and Mallory's story, and what a story it is! I really liked these two when I met them in Moving Forward and was happy knowing they'd get the chance to tell their stories too. by now you should have read book one and you know at the end we find out Mallory's pregnant with Seth's baby. She planned on telling him at Jesika and & Derek's wedding, until she saw Seth with that skank ex Alison...

Women like Alison are the reason pharmaceuticals like penicillin were in

After reading Moving Forward by Erika Ashby I knew I had to read the second book in the series No Going Back. In no time at all I fell in love with Seth and Mallory's story. I knew there was way more to their story and I absolutely loved reading it.

First off if you haven't read Moving Forward this review may contain spoilers from that book. Just a fair warning while reading on. We meet Mallory and Seth in moving forward as Jesika's best friend and Derek's brother and band mate. Seth is living h

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

Let me tell you what.. my emotions were all over the freaking place on this!! I went from swooning, to flat out slap-a-hoe, to I wanna murder this chick, to sad, to crying, to blah, to angry, to overly excited that justice is served. GAME OVER.

Wow! Mallory and Seth’s story is a crazy up and down ride that you do not want to get off! I absolutely loved this book! I could not put it down. We meat Mallory and Seth in Jesika and Derek’s book (Moving Forward), and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen with these two.

Seth and Mallory’s story is all kinds of crazy but you will love it! There is always something standing in the way of these two being together, or one of them holding back their true feelings. There are a few times I wanted

I really enjoyed this one. I read Moving Forward and could not wait for the next book in this series. I totally can relate to this authors writing style due to the fact that she writes the way I talk which had me cracking up through out most of the book.

This starts back up where MoFo left us with Mallory and Seth's story. Mallory is pregnant and hasn't told Seth for fear of him only coming back to her because she is carrying his child. Seth is about to make a huge mistake but luckily someone st

While I wasn't too thrilled with the first book in this series, I thought Seth and Mallory's story was going to be a bit steamier, and I was right!

Seth Jordan is the stereotype lead singer for a rock band, total manwhore player. He isn't looking for anything serious, just someone to fill the void left in his heart from his past. Seth met Mallory in the first book of this series, Moving Forward. They agreed to just be F buddies as neither one was ready for a commitment. Now that Seth is tangled u

I really enjoyed No Going Back (Timing is Everything #2) by Erika Ashby. No Going Back is the follow up to Moving Forward and this is Mallory and Seths story. I actually read Moving Forward and No Going Back one right after the other and it made for great summer reading. Seth and Mallory don’t do relationships but there is something between them that makes them want to try. This book had so many twists and turns my head was spinning. Things are not made easy for Mallory and Seth and at some poin ...more

This was a great story, starting where Moving Forward left off! at Jesika and Derek's wedding, so we knew that Mallory was pregnant and Seth didn't know, its here that we meet Allison for the first time, she was the baby momma that broke Seth's heart, she convinces Seth that there is a possibility of getting their daughter back! Funny that his band has started to hit the big time!

We go back and forth between Seth and Mallory, who are both in love with each other but are scared to admit it! So r

The ending of "Moving Forward" was not a cliff hanger for the story of Derrick & Jesika but it was a Super Big Teaser for "No Going Back" and I couldn't wait to dive in!
Whew Seth & Mallory really get put through the ringer in this book so much sadness and really holding back thinking they were doing the right thing. Half way through the book I was not seeing any hope for them working things out just too much time, space and other people were between them. Lots of hot sex! We get to still

No Going Back is Seth and Mallory's story.. What a story about life's ups and downs and what some will do to ensure that no one else could possibly have what they can not have. Seth and Mallory fight with the demons inside themselves and deny the happiness and love they both deserve. Mallory settles for love from a wonderful man but in the end he is not Seth. The touring allows Seth to live the rock star life but after each show the chick he ends up with is no
