The Perfect Distraction lived up to its name! It will distract you from everyday life! The characters are well-developed, and feel like old friends. Kate, aka Katherine, is a young woman breaking out on her own. She making a new life for herself away from everything and everyone she knows. Is she stronger than she gives herself credit for? Or will old habits grab hold of her and pull her back to a way of life that she desperately wants to leave behind her? Can she learn to forgive and let go of things that are out of her control? Will she be able to take charge of her life and live it the way she want to live? Can’t wait for the second book to be released!
When Katherine “Kate” leaves for her freshmen year at college, a grounded and stable piece of her is missing. She pushes away the ghosts of her past, determined to start her college life single, carefree and distracted.
Throughout high school Kate was reserved and shy, with little experience. Now, on her own, with little holding her back, Kate is ready to branch out. She bonds with a tight knit group of friends and even starts casually dating. What starts out as innocent flirting on the tennis courts slowly turns into a friendship and eventually something more complex. Reed comes into her life giving her the distraction she craves more than anything; but is she ready to give her heart away so easily?
Things get complicated when Kate’s ex-boyfriend and first love continues to pursue her. Kyle deeply regrets breaking her heart when he left for college the year before and is now on a mission to reclaim her. Kyle’s persistence and relentlessness is nothing short of obsessive. He will stop at nothing to win her back and prove his love.
Kate finds herself torn between her past and the unknown of the future. Her determination to stay distracted may just be her downfall or the beginning of something new and wonderful.
