A Beautiful Distraction (+ Giveaway)

A Beautiful Distraction coverI’m delighted to be participating in New York Times bestselling author Kelsie Leverich’s A BEAUTIFUL DISTRACTION Blog Tour, for her brand new sexy contemporary romance featuring military bad boys.

As part of the tour, thanks to Kelsie and the lovely Courtney at Penguin Group, I have one print copy of A BEAUTIFUL DISTRACTION, a Hard Feelings Novel, to give away. Please see the end of the post for the details.

Nothing’s more dangerous than a bad boy with a broken heart…

        First Sergeant Rafe Murano did everything to the extreme. He trained harder, he fought harder, and unfortunately, he loved harder. But he fell for the wrong woman and it nearly destroyed him.
        Back home from a deployment, with no mission to consume him, Murano’s ravaged by memories of his past. 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.
        Fallon Kelly learned the hard way not to take risks with her heart, but she sees something irresistible in the tatted-up bad boy one more punch away from a ride in the back of a squad car. She offers a distraction. And he quickly becomes an addiction. Little does she know, this bad boy could love so hard it could break her …


Kelsie Leverich lives with her husband, two children, and their three pets. She loves stories that can sweep you off your feet, make you fall in love, break your heart, and heal your soul.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Do you enjoy stories that have a main character with a ‘bad boy’ image who is really a sweet guy at heart? Or, had you rather the character really be a bad boy? a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Oh, yeah! "Bad Boys" without a touch of sweetness just don't have the same appeal. That "sugar" is hard to resist--in story lines or life lines!!!

  2. Women are always a distraction. But a good one!
    Congratulations, Kelsie.

  3. Mason - Thanks for sharing this. So many people find those military 'bad boys' absolutely irresistible.

  4. well I wouldn't really mind such a tattooed distraction!

  5. Either way is fine with me.

  6. I don't really mind either. the story just has to interest me C:


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
