Publisher's 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.

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!

Smoothly romantic! Added to my favorites!

How could anyone not love this story? It has so many sweet moments mixed with the raw sensuality of the two main characters. Savannah is a delight! Her personality is sunshine! I enjoyed how she just seemed so natural with the child and nothing was contrived. Then her attitude towards Ben sometimes just made me smile. I liked all the ups and downs of all their relationships.

One of my favorite things (besides how romantic Ben is) is the friends and family we run across. How they are all liked to each other reminds me of a small town romance.

This is a first time author for me. She did an excellent job building these characters And making me fall in love with them. I look forward to more from her.

I listened to this on audio. The voice selections were PERFECT! Sarah Puckett is just how I imagined Savannah would sound! Michael Gallagher did wonderfully as Ben and the broody teen. They both did an outstanding job.

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.

Sweet story with little drama

I enjoyed this story a lot. It really shows that sometimes you just click with a person and form a bond you never expected. This is what happens between Savannah and Brody (Ben’s teenage son). Ben and Savannah also meet and have some chemistry even if Ben is confused on why he likes this girl. From here it just blossoms into a sweet story with little angst and drama. I do wish the issue with Brody and his mom’s boyfriend wasn’t so rushed. It just felt like an afterthought of “oh yeah, I have to do something with this situation” then it was tossed together and deemed good enough. I wanted a bit more out of it personally.

The narration of the audiobook was just great. The narrators, Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett was great. They both seemed to embody their character perfectly. It was a joy to listen too.

No Strings

Awww I just loved this book! This is a single dad romance. Ben is not your typical single dad at first. He was jaded about relationships and family. He is a father 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. Then Savy comes crashing into their lives. Savy is finally starting to live her life for herself. She 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. I loved this book so much. Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher did a phenomenal job bringing these characters to life!

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.

Single Dad Romance

No Strings by Nikki Ash is a single dad romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Michael Gallagher and Sarah Puckett.

This is the second book of Nikki's that I have read, and it won't be my last. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Savannah and Benjamin. They had their struggles, but you couldn't help but root for them. I really enjoyed getting both of their points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

Michael and Sarah did an amazing job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would recommend this book if you like single dad romances or contemporary romances.

Benjamin and Sav!

After being betrayed by those Sav should have been able to trust she is convinced by her best friend to move to NY and she even has a job lined up for her. She is outgoing, feisty and has a way of connecting with people before they even realize it which is what happens with Benjamin and his son Brody. She isn’t looking for a relationship but a little fun with Benjamin may be exactly what she needs.

Benjamin has a difficult past which sees him becoming a father even though it was never in his plans. Although he wasn’t there for his son while he was growing up now that he is a teenager circumstances have changed, and he must try and repair their fractured relationship and Sav is a distraction of the best kind.

Hot chemistry, witty banter and all the feels as Sav is exactly what Benjamin and Brody both need in their lives as even though she never had a family of her own she shows them what family truly is. The narration was flawless as they brought to life all the aspects of the story and the characters. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

No strings...until there are!

This book totally sucked me in and won my heart! Benjamin is a single dad living with his teenage son, Brody. Savannah has recently moved into their building, befriending Brody and finding out her boss is Benjamin! But these three have a bond. Immediately, Brody and Savvy have an understanding and Savvy finds herself helping the teen. The strong attraction between Benjamin and Savvy is evident, and the two are ready to take the plunge into the no strings attached arrangement. But will Savvy be able to separate her feelings for the new found family that she is enjoying or will her heart be broken? There are some amazing characters in this one. I enjoyed Savvy and Benjamin's story,the push pull, the growing feelings, the love. But the real winner for me in this one is Brody. While a freshman in high school, his relationship with Savvy was one of nurturing and understanding. I loved how these two melded. Nikki Ash hits all the buttons, with an age gap, opposites attract, single dad, office romance and I loved it!

Michael Gallagher is so good! Telling me the story as Benjamin, he gives us all the frustration, fear and love Benjamin deals with. He has a such a great range of emotions in his voice, and uses them all. Sarah Puckett comes in as the sassy Savvy, young, ambitious and ready to start her new chapter. She keeps her full of feelings as we explore her past and her present. These two work together well, with complimenting voices and a great performance.
