Beautiful Distraction by J.C. Reed, New Release & Review



Title: Beautiful Distraction

Author: J.C. Reed

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: April 12, 2016

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 basically 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.




J.C. Reed has never disappointed me with her books, and Beautiful Distraction is no exception. Once that pivotal moment hits and you have your ah-ha moment, it all clicks together but it’s a battle to get there.
Kellan Boyd is amazingly hot, cocky and arrogant. You can’t help but spend a lot of time wondering why he is being such a jerk. Is it the money? Is it the control? Or is it something stronger that he is unable to divulge until the moment that has Ava questioning everything?
A minor accident in a parking lot leads to a wild ride and no one sees the outcome of it. After their cars bumped in a crowded parking lot, he can’t stop thinking about her. He was a jerk to her and he knew it. But he also knew everything he was risking. He had a lot on the line but she can’t know the biggest secret of all.
But after Ava wins tickets to see Mile High in concert in Montana, she knows her best friend will never let her live it down if they don’t go on this road trip of a lifetime. But a couple of wrong turns and no cell phone service and the unthinkable happens. They land on his doorstep. Is it fate that their paths crossed once again or is it the universe’s way of saying something more?
Though Ava has no desire to spend even one more minute with Kellan Boyd, her body and mind are at war. He is hot, she would like nothing more than for him to make good on all those dirty promises he has made to her. But she also knows this is a bad idea. She knows it, but her body just can’t seem to accept it.
Once her car is back on the road, she is so out of his hair. She will forget him. She will go back to New York and live her life.
Again, the Universe and Kellan have other plans for her. There is so much more to Kellan than he is willing to tell her and she knows that if she sticks around his Montana ranch, something is going to break. She just hopes it isn’t her heart.
The sexual tension and chemistry between these two is insane. You know they both want so much from one another, but there’s always that one secret keeping them from moving further and further.
No, I’m not going to tell you what that secret is, but once you reach that moment and all the pieces fall into place, you hope the two of them will find a happily ever after. The passion, the tension and the pure power of this story will just keep you reading until the very end.
J.C. Reed has once again done an amazing job with the passion and attention to detail in her writing. I can never seem to get enough of her books. They always sit in my mind and linger, long after the final page has been read. But what makes this book even more fabulous is knowing there is more! Kellan has brothers and I can’t wait to read their stories!
Well written and a must read. J.C. Reed has definitely secured a spot in my favorite authors list and Beautiful Distraction is the perfect example of why.
