Overview


No Strings Attached by Nicolette Day

She wants one night. He wants her forever.

Hayden Summers just landed the job of a lifetime taking pictures for Time magazine, but she’s determined to leave with no regrets. The first thing on her list? Erase the memory of her cheating ex with a wild night of anonymous sex. The second? Figure out why her best friend, sexy bar owner Jace Jennings, stopped speaking to her the night she told him about the job.

Jace has a problem. Hayden isn’t just leaving the country, she’s risking her life—just when he’s realized he’s in love with her. When fate traps them in the storage room of his bar together, barely contained desire simmers to surface. In one last attempt to keep her, Jace offers Hayden the one thing she wants: a night of hot sex, no strings attached. But when the night is over, will Jace be able to let her go? And will Hayden leave with her heart intact?

    Good but short

    ## Holy moly. The hero in this book.....Yowza, he was hot. And the heroine sweet. However, it was just too short. 51 pages (hence only 4 stars). I had no clue. If only the author could've added another 100 pages or so to develop these characters fully. They had tremendous chemistry which is a must for me in a book. Albeit short, this was one sexy read.

    "Do you want me Hayden?"... "Yes," she said

    "Do you want me Hayden?"...
    "Yes," she said with bated breath. "I want you"
    "Then we're done talking"

    THE GOOD:
    This was one quick and sexy novella. I often find with short stories that I don't have enough time to get to know characters well enough to care what happens to them. But I really connected with Jace & Hayden. 

    The fact that they have been friends for so long & have secretly loved each other also helped with the romantic connection between them. It created so much sexual tension in the short time we spend with them. You know how they've felt all this time, and just can't wait until they finally get together! And when they do…EXPLOSIVE!!!!

    "He groaned and brought his body flush against hers, pressing her into the door so that all she could feel was the heat of him, warming all the places where her too tight clothes were plastered against her body"

    The ending was also really super sweet I actually *awwwed* out loud! It just finished off this hot and steamy novella perfectly!

    THE BAD:
    It was too short! I wanted more Jace *wink wink* (or maybe some more Nate, hint hint Miss Day!)

    FINAL WORD:
    A hot & steamy novella definitely worth a read!!! Definitely hoping there will be a story for Nate & Lilly next!

    CONTENT:
    Sexuality: Strong / sex scenes
    Violence: none
    Language: medium / several f words
    Drugs & alcohol: mild

    After I finished this the only thought I had or could even come

    After I finished this the only thought I had or could even come up with was something like.."What the heck did I just read?" And can I just say, that I mean that in the best way possible? Because holy crap, that may have only been 67 pages, but it was 67 delicious pages. My only complaint? I wanted it to go on and on and on and on. Couldn't they have maybe been locked in the storage room for like a week? Maybe two? Yeah I know. Blah, blah they would've died, blah, blah. You people ruin all my fun with your "reality checks"!

    This book followed one of my absolute favorite types of storylines. The going from friends/best friends to falling in love. And in just a few pages Nicolette did a really good job at showing us the emotional depth between Hayden and Jace without having it feel like it's just another been there done that friends to lovers sort of book. It was fresh and fun and a bit thrilling! You know, the idea of being locked in a room with a smokin' hot guy that you've been pining for since as long as you can remember. Tell me the idea of that isn't thrilling. Yep. Thought so ;)

    I enjoyed all of the characters, even the side ones. Jace was beyond crush worthy. I really felt for him and enjoyed the book most when it was in his POV. And the little bits we got with Nate had me really liking him as well and I'm hoping we'll get to see his story in the future. I was pretty impressed that in such a short book I was given just enough to become attached to each one of these characters and have me wanting to read more of them.

    This would be a perfect read for those of you who want something hot and endearing and just plain yummy, but don't have the time to sit down to a full length novel. I highly recommend it!

    I received this arc for a review. :)

    It centers around Hayden and best buddy Jace. Hayden is leaving for a job and she wants a quick hook up to forget her ex. But she stumbles into the arms of Jace in a darken storage room. Man, when they got together, it was H-O-T. *fans self*

    I thought this was fabulous! It was a nice, quick steamy read. Can't wait to read more from the author!

    This is a promising start to a new comtempory series. We have the requisite hot tattooed gentlemen but with lots of great twists.
    He is kind. He took care of his dying mother and his just returned from war brother.  He is not a bad boy and while not a virgin by
    a long stretch he isn't a man ho and does not treat women like objects until he meets the one. Best of all, he puts his life on hold
    so the heroine can achieve her dreams. I give you, Jace, awesome hero. 

    The heroine is smart and fun and little slow on the uptake as she had suppressed her feeling for her childhood friend way down. 

    This is a fast good read and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. 

    I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it. :)

    When I first started No Strings Attached I didn't know it was a novella, but dang, it's a tease of a novella that definitely packs a sexy punch! It was everything I love in a book and I wanted to just keep reading more and more about Hayden and Jace. 




    There were a few things I loved about Hayden right off the bat. The fact that she kept fighting for a job she wanted and that she wasn't letting anything or anyone take it away from her. Plus I love her brazen (pun intended) attitude and I loved her interactions with Jace. Jace on the other hand... holy gosh on toast this fella. I loved him as soon as we meet him. His jealous and almost "big brother protector act" just stole my heart. Plus the fact that he was willing to make such a leap for Hayden... unf! Beautiful boy and perfect personality. 




    I loved everything about this novella except that I went through it so quickly! No Strings Attached lets you fall in love with the characters right from the start, puts you through angst, kicks up the sexiness, and then steals your heart all in a short amount of pages. Couldn't have asked for more! Definitely will be looking forward to Nicolette Day's next release!!

    My first thought? This is short *pouts* After page one, I knew there was no way this little novella would be enough. 

    No Strings Attached is sexy, hot, sweet and full of romance in a little pack of 62 pages. Honestly no wasted space here. 

    I loved Hayden from page 1. She's so passionate about her job as a photographer and wanting to go to Sudan to record it all for the world to see. She wants one night with no regrets before going away to a place she might not come back from. 

    Jace is Hayden's best friend. He always had her by his side, even when his family wasn't and he's not happy with her decision. He also happens to be an incredibly hot, tattooed bartender. 

    When fates locks them up in the bar's storage room, sparks fly and the temperature rises. 

    Jace and Hayden relationship is beautiful and we get too see a bit of how it was while they were kids. Honestly I can't seem to get enough of this short novella.

    Nicolette Daywrites an emotional, sexy story with great characters you won't get enough.

    I am not a huge fan of Novellas for several reasons. The first one being if I love the characters and their stories, I always want there to be more. Which goes right into the second reason, I always want to get closer to the characters, learning more about them. Third reason being it’s over before it seems like it even began. All of that aside, I ADORED Nicolette Day’s No Strings Attached. Most definitely 5 stars from me!
    I instantly loved Hayden with her sass, her affirmation of her place in life, what she is looking for, and how strong as well as self confident that she is. An all around fun girl that I wouldn’t miss a beat being friends with.
    And to the opposite spectrum is Jace, who radiates sexy, “come hither” looks, and carries himself with such confidence that every woman wants a piece of him. But his heart belongs to his best friend, but he can’t go there with her.
    What happens when these two get trapped in a storage closet for who knows how long, with no more time left before Hayden leaves to a dangerous war-torn land the next morning? These two know what they want, but must decide if they act on it.
    Nicolette does a wonderful job of creating their back story in such a way that makes me forget it is less than a hundred pages long while creating a full circle ending that left me speechless. 
    I instantly passed on the awesomeness of this book to friends who read it and couldn’t help but to pass it on to others.
    This book is a prime example as to why I wish there was always more. Fantastic writing, Nicolette!

    A hot and steamy encounter in a darkened room, where a passionate kiss could lead into so much more but an interruption stops everything.

    This is my first read by Nicolette Day and I have to say wow girl you totally know how to write a story that is passionate, hot, sexy all rolled up in one. I could not put this book down because from the moment that I met Jace I wanted to gobble him up. This is the perfect read when you are looking for something hot and steamy that you could be done before heading to bed only I will warn you is once you are done you will want for it to continue.

    So Hayden is ready to go for an assignment but before she goes she needs to do something especially after hearing from her ex-boyfriend that he is getting married to one of her relatives. She is not leaving knowing that her last sexual encounter with him but the worst part is that was almost one year ago. Not only that but her best friend Jace has been ignoring her but here she is at his club dressed sexy as hell.

    Jace has been in love with Hayden since like forever but just never knew it until now, now that she was leaving and who knew if she would return, especially now that she is single again. When she comes into his club he can’t seem to keep his eyes off her, there is something different. That is when he learns that she is planning to have a one night stand with some jerk. When her friend helps her climb on the bar for a body shot he knows he will not stand if another man touches her. So he chooses himself and he hikes up her dress, licks her inner thigh and tastes her sweet skin. There is no way in hell he will let someone touch her, no matter how upset she may get.

    No Strings Attached is an excellent read and very well written. Hayden seemed a little stiff at first but guess what she actually went through meeting someone not knowing what she was getting herself into. Now Jace is your alpha male with a great body with a sleeve tattoo that make you want to run your tongue on it. I don’t know what it is about a man that is inked up but they are sexy a hell. I love Ms. Day’s writing style and love how she was able to connect these two friends and convert them into lovers. I would love to see another book on them to see what happens in their relationship but I also want to know more about Jace’s brother, Nate. The little bit that I read about Nate and his story I was intrigued.

    This book kept me captivated and reading it non stop but I will say you will need something to cool you off. I totally recommend this story to any readers that want a short read full of passion and romance.

    The characters in No Strings Attached were great. Jace was an awesome character. I loved his back story and found
    myself connecting with him. Hayden, on the other hand, felt some what stiff to me. She's a great character and I enjoyed
    reading her story but I just didn't connect with her the way I did with Jace. It could have been that she was acting completely
    out of the ordinary for herself, aka deciding to have a one night stand with a stranger, but something was just off to me. 

    I'd love to revisit the characters, perhaps in a longer story, and get to know them better. I'm also interested in Lilly and Nate's story
    (Do I smell a second book, maybe?). I'm definitely a sucker for military men.

    Overall, No Strings Attached is a fast, fun and easy read. It's the perfect friends-to-lovers story for anyone and everyone.

    Hayden is your ambitious woman with a decision that her long time Best Friend isn't happy with. Jace has been avoiding Hayden not wanting to face her. She is concerned because she knows Jace is upset and is afraid that their friendship is ruined.




    Jace has had his fair share of heartache and problems along the way. Jace had to grow up fast at a young age.




    Both have feelings for the other that have been there for a long time but they are too afraid to confess as that may ruin everything between them.




    I am not usually a fast reader but after I started it I couldn't stop. 




    This is a great read! It's short but has so much packed into it. Apprehension, Love, friendship, HOT SEX, HOT Guy and some humor. What more could you ask for?

    WOW! What can I say about No Strings Attached  by Nicolette Day.

    WOW! What can I say about No Strings Attached  by Nicolette Day. Seriously, this was an amazing novella. I found myself needing to finish it before I did anything else. Thank goodness, it happens to be a quick read. 
    From the get go Ms. Day had me captivated with Hayden Summers and Jace Jennings. I really didn't want there story to end. First off, talk about heat. These two happen to be friends forever and they just seem to have bad timing. Each of them has more than "friend" feeling, but afraid to admit. Talk about a page turner. 
    Seriously, LOVED this novella. I absolutely LOVED the ending. Granted the ending was on the sappy side, but it was perfect. I can't wait to see more from this author. So, if you are looking for a quick hot read, I would say get yourself a copy of No Strings Attached. I'm not kidding that good.

    This one I could NOT put down! From the very beginning I was sucked into Hayden and Jace's story. It was easy to picture Jace with all his muscles and tattoos as the badass bartender getting all the girls attention and it was just as easy to picture Hayden all work and no play feeling out of place in a bar in a scrap of black fabric trying to let loose when it so obviously went against her nature. The characters in this story felt so real. So relatable. I wanted to root for them. I was hitting myself in the forehead thinking how could you not see how perfect you two are for one another. Why don't either of you get it! This one pulled my heart strings and the ending..WOW thats all I can say. No Strings Attached packs a punch for a novella and Nicolette Day makes every page count. I think most people can relate to experiencing a friendship growing into something more and the fear and worry that goes along with that. Nicolette Day captures this perfectly in No Strings Attached.




    Oh and did I mention Jace has a HOT brother..maybe if we're lucky and ask really nicely we'll get a book about him...

    No Strings Attached is the first book I've read by Nicoleyte Day

    No Strings Attached is the first book I've read by Nicoleyte Day and I really enjoyed it. I normally like longer books but this was perfect quick read when I don't want to stay up late.

    The book is about Hayden and her assistant Lilly having a last night out before Hayden leaves the country for a work trip that her bff Jaycees doesn't approve of and how their relationship handles the change.

    Personally I love friends to lover's stories. I really enjoyed the characters and I especially liked that it was the female going off on a dangerous path for a change. The only thing that could have made this better for me would be if it were longer. I wouldn't mind a second book on these characters showing how they handled the changes between them and the path they took. I also enjoyed the supporting characters. I cant wait to read Lilly and Nate's story next.

    I received this book to review from the publisher. While I do not typically read this type of book, it came at the perfect time for me since I was looking for something different to read. 




    I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read. Hayden is a wonderful protagonist, who is in love with her best friend, Jace, but doesn't want him to know. She is about to head out for a job in a war-torn country and decides to have a one night stand to help forget about her jerky ex-boyfriend.




    But little does Hayden know... Jace has feelings for her too! It is just so wonderful when two people feel the same about each other, especially when it is someone you have known since you were both teens and at one time considered each other family.




    The chemistry between Hayden and Jace is undeniable. Ms. Day does a wonderful job of writing and telling this story in a way that is real and believable. 




    If you are looking for sexy, quick read then definitely check out No Strings Attached.  *Reviewed by: Laura at The Little Pink Book Boutique*

    No Strings Attached was a joy to read. Just the right amount of hot and steamy mixed with a great story. Who can resist a best-friends-to-lovers theme, especially when their back story of compassion is so much a part of their character? I recommend this as a great summer (or any season) read!
