Can their newly sought love stand up against the secrets that life is unlocking to their pasts? Or can they decide together that moving forward and forgetting the past is the only option for them to find true happiness?
**Intended for Mature Audiences**
This book will make you feel a variety of emotions. I was upset at the beginning due to how tragically it begins. Then I was happy to see that Jesika was beginning to live again and was starting to find some happiness with Derek. Later I was extremely frustrated and wanted to throw something at a certain someone. Only to be sad and then happy again.
Derek is just “WOW”. He’s been “in like” with Jesika for over a year now. He’s so excited that she spoke to him after he approached her that day when she ran off upset. They both feel like they are drawn to one another like magnets. Their chemistry is sizzling and the sex scenes are just yummy and hot.
I truly enjoyed this book. I’m glad that the author included Jaxon (Jesika’s son) and Emma (Derek’s daughter) in the story. They weren’t just mentioned as a thought here and there they were a part of the story giving you a glimpse of what they would be like as a family. The author did a great job at telling an emotional story. I would recommend this to my fellow readers.
No Going Back (Timing is Everything #2)
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.
I Received An ARC Of This In Exchange For My Honest Review!
This is the second book in the Timing Is Everything Series. This is Seth and Mallory’s story and while it’s upsetting and frustrating at times due to their past and problems it’s also quite hilarious at points.
I enjoy Mal she’s a hellion. She loves to dress up and high heel shoes. She prides herself on her good fashion sense. She loves Seth but he says that he doesn’t do relationships and doesn’t feel anything for her. Seth is a true rock star and player. He really does love Mal but feels that he isn’t good enough for her. That doesn’t stop them from being drawn to one another.
Once again Erika Ashby takes you on a emotional ride. The sex scenes in this book are even steamier and more explicit than the first. Lots of swearing. A good read that I’d recommend to my fellow readers.
In the End (Timing is Everything #3)
*Novella-Prequel to Moving Forward*
Jake Reynolds’ life had always been perfectly mapped out for him as he was growing up. The only time he ever felt like he had any control over it was when he was inside the cage—the same cage that held no for sure outcome. In his twisted mind being inside that ring with his opponent was the most freeing feeling. In that moment alone he was able to let his perfected guard down and be who he wanted to be.
From the outside looking in, everything about Jake’s life looked perfect, but he knew that he wasn’t. His whole life had been set up for him before he was even born, and even though it’s not the life he wanted, he continued living it.
When you have everything you could ever want at your fingertips, why screw it up?
That was his mindset until the night Jesika showed up at his fight. He knew she was different from the get-go. He also knew he didn’t deserve her, but that didn’t mean he didn’t want to try. Jake had skills inside and out of the cage and he was known to always get what he wanted no matter the risk. But was he willing to change who he had always been in order to keep the one that he thought was worth the fight? Will it all be worth it in the end?
I Received An ARC In Exchange For My Honest Review!
This is the third book in the Timing Is Everything Series. This book is Jake’s story and is told by him. He tells us everything from when he meets Jesika until the end when everything goes dark in his life. This book lets us get a inside look at Jake and what he’s really like.
Erika does a great job showing us how Jake really felt about Jesika and Jaxon. The struggles he faced within himself after making the biggest mistake of his life. I enjoyed his story and getting to know more about him. This book redeems Jake in my eyes. Thank you Erika for a great series that I will be recommending to my friends.

~Moving Forward Excerpt~
My heart is pounding like it’s going to burst out of my chest. This woman has no freaking clue what she does to me. Gah, or how good she feels. It’s far better than I could have ever dreamt. This goes above and beyond getting laid, and getting mine. This is all about giving. They say giving is better than receiving and in this case, trying to show her without words how much I love her, it is. I can sense through the way her body responds to mine, the look in her eyes, and by the few words that have been spoken, that she’s trying to show me that she feels exactly what I do. This first time experience between us is filled with pure need. We are able to show each other things we feel with something as simple as touch.
I want to take her over the edge again, but I know I’m not going to last much longer because everything I’m feeling right now isn’t going to let me drag it out.
~No Going Back Excerpt~
“You know, spitters aren’t quitters, Mallory.” Seth says in a serious tone as he pulls his face away from mine.
“Okay,” I slowly drawl out, not sure where he’s going with this.
“As long as you keep the lid on the juicer, you’re a winner in my book.”
“What the hell is that supposed to mean?” I ask. He shrugs as his mouth starts to turn into that sly smile of his that I fine absolutely irresistible.
“You know, you don’t jump ship before it’s even docked. You keep the lava contained while it’s erupting.” The he sighs. “As long as you let me nut in your mouth, I don’t care what you do with the contents.”
I laugh. “Well, that’s good to know, but for a reason that I’m now sure you’re aware of, I’m still gonna taste your residual nut juice in my mouth whether I spit it or down it.”
~In The End Excerpt~
It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. I wasn’t supposed to wake up in the bed next to another woman…her of all people. I’m all too familiar with the likes of her kind and it isn’t just because we use to be fuck buddies…back when I was into snorting shit up my nose. Times when I’d rather be high than deal with reality. Before I ever found my true passion and release—the one that came from being in the ring.
“Get the fuck out of my bed!” I yell as I scurry to find my boxers through the slew of clothes thrown everywhere.
Fuck. I really fucking did it. The old me showed his fucking ass last night, and I have no damn recollection of it at all. Fucking brilliant.
