Summary

From USA Today best-selling Author Nikki Ash comes a brand-new, contemporary, stand-alone romance about a single dad who thinks he has everything figured out...until he meets her.

Savannah

A sexy, single dad and his teenage son weren’t a part of my white-picket-fence fairy tale, but if life has taught me anything, it’s that things don’t always work out according to plan. 

Ben offers me no-strings-attached sex, but we could never be stringless. He has a son to think about, one who’s very much a part of my life. 

No matter how much I want to accept his offer, taking our relationship to the next level would leave us tangled in knots.

Benjamin

After experiencing firsthand the devastation love can cause, I knew having a family wasn’t for me.

Neither was being a single dad—but here we are, trying to make it work. 

The last thing I need is a distraction, but then Savannah waltzes into my world, stealing my treadmill at the gym—as well as my son’s heart.

We agreed to no strings. No complications or commitments. But I’m going back on my word because now that I know what it’s like to be with Savannah, there’s no way I’m ever letting her go.

Perfect!

I love Nikki Ash's books, and No Strings was no exception. No String is one of the best single dad/friends-to-lovers standalone romances I've read or listened to in a long while. It's wonderfully written with the perfect balance of heartfelt emotions, sweetness, drama, passion, and steam. It was impossible not to be completely enthralled by Benjamin and Savannah's journey. Savannah and Benjamin's story sprang from friendship with an undeniable connection, evolving into something beautiful, founded on affection, trust, understanding, love, and ultimately family. Brody, Benjamin's teenage son, played a part in the evolution of their relationship. No Strings was all-consuming, and I loved every minute of it.

The audiobook is narrated by two incredibly talented voice artists, Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett. Both narrators were believable and authentic in their roles. They flawlessly captured the nuances of personalities, emotions, connection, and chemistry, bringing the characters to life. No Strings was a marvellous listen, one I'm highly recommending.

Audiobook obsession reviewer. Flock reviewer

Oh this book got me into so much trouble (not really I just got an eye roll and a you mean you did nothing today but listened to a book?) I had so much planned to do today and thought. What better than to put on this amazing sounding book to liven up cleaning and gardening.

Instead I was captivated and transported to Nikki Ash’s world with her characters who stole my heart so quickly and their troubles and successes. This was just an amazing book, the narration was spot on and I only wish I could listen to it again for the first time.

LOVED

Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett did an excellent job with the narration.

Ben is single dad to a 14 year old son, but wasn’t really part of his life until he starts acting out in school. Ben moves back to the city and his son Brody moves in. Savy who divorced her cheating husband and has written off men and relationships too. Ben and Savy are instantly attracted to each other but have sworn to a “No Strings” arrangement. Loved Ben's teenage son Brody! The story has drama and twists and turns.

Loved the Story and the Characters!!

No Strings was a cute and sweet friends to lovers romance. Savannah finds herself starting over in a new city after being betrayed by her husband and her best friend. Shortly after moving to New York, she meets Ben. He is hard-working, owning several businesses, and recently his son moved in with him so he is adjusting to being a full-time father.

Ben and Savannah form a friendship quickly. They are polar opposites in a lot of ways, but their banter and friendship is easy. In addition, Savannah and Ben's son, Brody, were also quick to bond. The more time Savannah and Ben spent together, the more their relationship evolved, until Ben offers up a no strings casual sexual relationship. It does get tricky given how much their lives have been tied together since meeting.

I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed it. I really liked both main characters as well as Brody. It was clear from the start how much these three people belonged together and how well Savannah fit into Brody and Ben's lives. I liked how Savannah balanced out Ben's more serious nature. I think Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett did a fantastic job with the narration of this story. They were both very pleasant to listen to. I would definitely recommend both them and this book. #TheFlock #PinkFlamingoProductions

Made for each other

Savannah and Ben were made for each other. Savannah is starting her life all over again after a betrayal when she gets a very good job opportunity in NYC. She moves in with her best friend and she meets Ben a single father who has just taken over the primary care of raising his son Brody. Ben and Savannah have these moments that you know eventually will lead them to being together but what I like most about this book was Savannah’s effect she had on Brody and his relationship with a Ben. This was the first book I have listened to,or,read, unthinking author and I am now a new fan. The narration was wonderful.

Good Listen

Ben was not looking for a relationship but here comes Savanah. She caught his attention and he wanted a no strings relationship. His son met her first and was the only one that he would talk to. Now Ben wants more and he has to convince Savanah that he is serious and will always be there.

Strings or no strings?

This was such a sweet story, full of emotions, friendships, lots of stings, love and heartache.
I wish we got just a little more, but it was still such a good story.

Outstanding Story & Narration🎧 A Captivating Gem!

I loved everything about this book, from Nikki Ash’s wonderful writing style to the characters and storylines she created to the perfectly cast narrators who bring it all to life from the pages to your ears. This story not only grabbed my attention right for the start and captivated it, but it tugged on my heartstrings the entire time, too. The characters are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with, they are easy to care about and even fall for. Savannah “Savy” Cartwright’s friend, Brianne, tells her she should come to NY to work in her brother’s company, Sharp Architecture and Construction, as the new CFO. Savy, a CPA, recently divorced worked at her ex-husband’s companies and needed a job but she was not sure if she wanted to leave Tennessee, but it took little convincing for her to say yes and accept her offer to stay with her. Benjamin Fields is a successful business owner and father of a 14-year-old son, Brody, who lives with his mother. When his son acts up and gets in trouble, his ex asks Benjamin to take him in. Brody was happy to get away from his current living situation. Benjamin rearranged things and moved to his NY apartment to be a full-time dad. Using the gym in the building, he notices someone new, a gorgeous someone who he finds intriguing. I loved that scene, heck I loved every scene in the gym, I could picture it all in my head and laughed out loud every time. Savy bumps into Brody and the two hit it off and become friends, the rapport between them is great and so is the dialogue. Little did she know Benji was Brody’s dad and that he was friends with her new boss and the owner of the building where she worked. Everything falls nicely in place in this wonderfully plotted single dad romance novel, her ex-husband left her jaded and not wanting to get in a relationship again and neither does Ben, both are a no strings attached relationship types, Ben offers that type of relationship, she does not want to jeopardize the friendship they built or make things awkward for Brody, but he convinces her to go for it. I loved how everything played out in this book, the dialogue is amazing and there is a perfect balance of drama, humor, heartfelt emotions and steamy romance. Nikki Ash, thank you for another amazing story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Nikki Ash chose the perfect cast to bring her characters and story to life. Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett are superbly talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They had a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed, gave each a voice that fit that character’s persona to a tee, sounding believable and just as I pictured the characters to sound. Sarah Puckett nailed it as Savannah grasped her genuineness and bubbliness, Michael Gallagher nailed it as Benjamin grasped all sides of his personality. Both were great performing the roles of all the secondary characters as well and I loved how both took their roles, ran with it and made them their own. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the character’s emotions and projected them into their performance. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration enhances an already amazing story to another level. Thank you for another fabulous listen.

Wonderful😩

This book was great on so many levels. The performance was perfect. The pace of the story was superb. I love that it didn’t move too fast and that you actually got to hear good and believable interactions between Savvy, Brody, and Ben. I love that these characters actually had depth to them and sounded more like people than fictional characters. Its deff worth your credit.

Really loved but…

I enjoyed this story so much. Miss Ash is becoming my favorite author. I have purchased most of her audiobooks and listened to more than once. However, I wish the author didn’t bring subject about gay since this is heterosexual romance. That said, I highly recommend!

Stand alone - contemp romance

This is an absolutely wonderful contemporary romance listen! Dual narration was perfect! Gallagher and Puckett did amazing as the voices of our main characters Ben and Savy. Savy stole the show for me personally with her southern charm and sass - being a southern girl myself I don't have her wit tho. Ben found his life completely turned upside-down with the addition of Brody and then Savy in his life and just as he thinks he has things where he wants them tragedy strikes and it's only with Savy's strength that he'll find his way back. I love the irony of this title - No Strings as this book pulled a lot of my strings - my heart strings! Well written, amazing characters with good characters growth and a smooth flowing storyline. Great balance of sweet, steamy and laughs. I would love for this to be a series of stand alones so we can get the stories of Ben and Savy's friends and family but even without I adored the epilogue and can't wait for anything more from Ash!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I voluntarily provided this review.

No Strings ~ Review

No Strings is a book told by Savannah and Benjamin. Benjamin is a workaholic but returns home to take care of his teenage son who is having some issues living at his mother's house. Savannah is new to the building. Benjamin and Savannah meet in the gym when both are there to work out. However when Savannah shows up on different days, Ben can't believe she's working out the way she is.

Savannah runs into Brody (Benjamin's kid) and he starts to look up to her. She teaches him that skipping school and doing things wrong to get attention isn't the way to go. They form a friendship, which then gets Benjamin and Savannah to spend more time together.

As Savannah and Benjamin hang out with Brody feelings start to develop. But when something happens it could ruin their friendship for good. I loved the banter between Savannah and Benjamin. I felt all the emotions of Brody. He went through a lot of hard things. I got frustrated with Benjamin but also understood where he came from. I loved how Savannah was there for everyone, even though she had her own issues as well.

I really enjoyed this book and everything it had to offer me!
