A Beautiful Distraction Book Tour: Review + Giveaway!

Welcome to my post for the A Beautiful Distraction book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for copies of A Beautiful Distraction. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

A Beautiful Distraction (Hard Feelings, #3)
Release date: May 6, 2014
Publisher: NAL Trade
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: Hard Feelings #3

A brand new novel in the New York Times bestselling Hard Feelings series—where nothing’s more dangerous than a bad boy with a broken heart…

First Sergeant RafeMurano did everything to the extreme. He trained harder, he fought harder, and, unfortunately, he loved harder. And falling for the wrong woman nearly destroyed him.

Home from a deployment, and without his missions to consume him, Murano is ravaged by memories of his heartbreak. So he drinks until he’s numb and drowns himself in meaningless one-night stands. But they only take the edge off…

Until he meets Fallon.

Haunted by her past, Fallon Kelly knows all too well about the desperate desire for an escape. So when she sees the tatted-up bad boy who’s one punch away from a ride in the back of a squad car, she offers a distraction—one that quickly becomes an addiction.

Little does she know, this bad boy can love so hard, it can break her…

My Rating: 4 Roses

An emotional, intense, and enjoyable read, A Beautiful Distraction was a wonderful romance. I really liked this book. From the sweet and hot romance, to the deep emotions, this book was great.

Fallon was a lovely heroine. She was strong, independent, and definitely a survivor. I got a little annoyed that her tendency to run away from emotional entanglements almost cost her the love of her life, but, otherwise, I really liked her.

Rafe was absolutely amazing. Very sweet and very devoted to the woman he loved. When he felt, he felt deep and wasn't afraid to show it. He was wonderful and I totally adored him.

The romance was great. The heat level between Fallon and Rafe was off the carts hot. Tons of sexy steaminess with these two. But, they were also very sweet together, with how they both fully accepted each other. I thought they were a lovely couple.

The plot was well paced and, though I wasn't totally hooked, I was kept interested the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was perfect.

A Beautiful Distraction was a wonderful romance. I really enjoyed reading this lovely book. With the hot romance and intense emotions, this book was fantastic. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll want to check out.
