A beautiful distraction by Kelsie Leverich Blog Tour

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…

Kelsie Leverich is the New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement as well as other contemporary romance titles. Kelsie grew up in the small town of St. Joseph Illinois before getting married and following her husband from one Army post to another. After eight years, they finally settled down in Avon, Indiana with two adorable knuckleheads that are better known as her kids. Kelsie's life revolves around her family (to include three dogs and a cat) and most of the time, actually all of the time, it’s a crazy mess—but that’s the way she loves it! When Kelsie’s not writing, you can usually find her snuggling on the couch with her kids and a good book or out on the lake with family and friends. Kelsie is not a morning person, has a soft spot for animals, loves musicals, hates seafood, and thinks laundry is the source of all evil.

There is so much I want to say on this book, but I was literally left speechless. It was just pure perfection, utterly amazing. I love Kelsie, I love her writing style and the way she takes me on a journey and sucks me into a book. But on this book, she really outdid herself. This may be one of my favorite books of the year, and my favorite book of hers yet. Every single thing about Fallon and Rafe was perfect. The push and pull, the back and forth, the fighting the feelings, the not-a-relationship-relationship, fighting for the other person, standing up for love. Every single thing was simple perfection. I love Fallon's spitfire attitude, the way she doesn't let other people get to her. I also love Rafe's alpha male dirty mouth. I love the way he loves her. It's all consuming, it's every where, it's everything he does. Though, I will admit, I totally wish Bridget got more of a brush off than what she got. There were so many other characters that I loved too. I didn't just love the main two, Carter, Jade, Graham, oh god.. His family, his friends. Everyone. And believe me you find yourself asking for more of a fight for Craig and Claire. I wanted them to all be put in their places. I wanted all the wrongs to be righted, but then again, I also need not worry because this is Rafe we are talking about. And you just know he is going to do anything to right the wrongs in her life, because her loves her that hardly.  I don't know who serves as a muse for Kelsie's men in her books, but she needs to swing them my way because they just get better and better. The flow of the book, the way she uses her words to get you addicted to the story, and she does it exceptionally well. 

I wish I could say I give this book 5 hearts. But I just don't think it's enough.
