#Review #Giveaway #NewRelease Beautiful Distraction by @JCReedAuthor

★★  Beautiful Distraction is LIVE! ★★ 
Only $2.99 or Free on KU

I wish I could stop this one moment, capture it, because I know it won’t last. Because a guy like him doesn’t stay in a woman’s life. He breezes through and leaves only havoc behind.

From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed, comes a new standalone novel.

Kellan Boyd always gets what he wants—except that one infuriating city girl who bumped into his new chick magnet sports car, dared to call him a jerk, and threw his pity check in his face.

Fast forward three months later.
When Ava Cross suddenly knocks on his door in the middle of a storm, soaking wet and in dire need of help, he’s determined to settle old scores and finally get her between the sheets where she belongs.

Ava knows Kellan is a complex man with a dark past and a wild reputation he can’t deny. Forced to stay, Ava begins a desperate search for the truth about the one man she wants to despise and quickly discovers that the passion she feels for him isn’t just deep…it’s dangerous to her heart.

Kellan is a beautiful distraction. When the traps of her own weakness stand in the way, Ava is faced with one choice only: peel off the layers of a man who's a wild cowboy at heart.

Author’s note – Beautiful Distraction is a full-length, standalone novel with no cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

REVIEW - 4 Stars!
This book was interesting for me. It’s hard to explain. There were moments when I was tempted to put it down, but I powered through. Then, I got to the end and everything clicked into place and all of the sudden the parts I’d read before it became much, much more interesting and I actually wanted to go back and read it again. So, if you find yourself in that conundrum, keep going, it’s worth it in the end!
Kellan is completely swoon-worthy…when he doesn’t talk. He’s an arrogant jackass and if it were me, I probably would have slapped him a time or two. He had tiny sparks where he seemed to show some improvement, but then he would blow it all to hell. His secrets definitely kept me curious too. Kellan is your typical commitment-phobe and has no probably being very vocal about any time with him being temporary. The reformed bad boy is not a new idea, so it wasn’t like I was blindsided by it. I had no problem with his initial personality. However, where I struggled was not seeing the reformation but for tiny glimpses here and there. After a while, I was really ready for the book to move on from that part of the story line.
Like I said before though, once you get to the end, everything makes sense and you start to realize all the little things that made so much more sense. And, he became a hero worth loving. And, his sexy, commanding alpha attitude in the bedroom (or wherever their fire explodes) is hot as hell.
Ava is quirky and her inner dialogue could be pretty funny. She really gets the short end of the stick with the story. lol. Mandy and Kellan sort of run right over her with a semi. She isn’t a doormat, those two are simply way too big a force to be reckoned with. Her attraction to Kellan is off the charts and I have to say, it’s pretty admirable how long she held out for. Lol. She is scarred, for sure, and vulnerable, but she also has a sense of self-worth that I appreciated. Her reaction at the end was a little surprising to me, I expected more relief, I guess. I kind of wanted to smack her upside the head for a few minutes. However, they all have their moments like that. They are human right? Sort of…
These two practically burned the pages and melted the book. Definitely hot!

Overall, it was really enjoyable and I might go back and re-read it at some point. I think it’s worth the read! 



"Friggin' unbelieable
Out of all the places Mandy could have taken me,
she's just managed to find the one place with the one guy
I hoped to never see again.
Judging from the way he acted, almost kicking me off

his property, he was pissed.
Like, really pissed.
Like I-had-no-sex-pissed.
