First Sergeant Rafe Murano 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 him a distraction—one that quickly becomes an addiction.

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

Literary's Views

A Beautiful Distraction turned out to have what I was looking forward to, a sexy story with interesting characters that made me want to know more. Fallon was a very interesting woman with a strength and emotional wall that she easily wielded that made me want to get to know why she was so guarded. Fallon was very level headed and business focused so it was great that Rafe came in and shook things up. Rafe was an army man trying to deal with a broken heart and from the moment he entered the scene I knew he was going to bring the passion and drama. See unlike Fallon who didn’t want to feel anything, Rafe felt deeply and didn’t care who knew it.

So the focused was on Rafe and Fallon finding this instant passionate connection that they both decided to explore to distract themselves from the issues they were dealing with. Neither of them thought that the feelings would grow and become this all consuming thing. What they had together was so sizzling hot that I felt with mostly all their interactions. Their relationship continually grew as Rafe dealt with his past heartache and Fallon dealt with opening up to someone after being abandon by everyone she loved. I really enjoyed how Rafe and Fallon were equally strong characters and how Fallon was constantly surprising Rafe with her strength and how Rafe was constantly bringing down Fallon guards with his genuine emotions and care. The drama was intense and exciting and there was emotion that tugged at my heart.

Overall A Beautiful Distraction by Kelsie Leverich was a yummy read that I ending up really enjoying. Rafe and Fallon’s relationship was sizzling hot and filled with interesting drama that pulled me in.
