Review: Distraction by Emily Snow

At the ripe old age of twenty-eight, Jamie Armstrong is sick of douchebags like the PA who told her she has an “ass made for screwing” on the first date. She wants commitment, and she’s got a list that she’s anxious to check off.



Baby (preferably twins, because two’s company).

Then she meets Mateo Bailon.

An attorney with a penchant for chains and kink, Mateo isn’t looking for commitment and he sure as hell doesn’t want marriage. Not again. He wants a distraction—a new way to forget his past—and Jamie’s his favorite kind of drug.

He just never counted on getting addicted.

4 Stars!

Review by Lisa Kane 

We first met Jamie Armstrong and Mateo Bailon in Friction, Jamie is Lucy Williams best friend and Mateo is the man who commissions Jace to create kinky toys for his playroom. Jamie pleaded Lucy’s case when a compromising photo of him and one of his friends popped up on the internet. A photo Lucy took and thought she was sending to Jamie.

 It was obvious at that meeting that Bailon was interested in Jamie. He let her know but she shot him down. He isn’t a man to let that stand in his way and he eventually persuades her to have dinner with him. He’s interested in having sex with her, but not in a relationship. He makes that more than clear on more than one occasion. While Jamie loves a good romp in the sack, she wants kids and a husband and she makes sure he knows that too. They are both playing with fire.

Distraction is steamy and sultry and Bialon, in spite of his player ways is a good guy. He has his reasons for keeping his heart on lock down. But I have to admit that towards the end of the story he frustrated the hell out of me. I kept thinking this guy is making some major screw ups and he’s his own worst enemy- maybe Jamie is better off without him. But of course like most good love stories, the hero redeems himself.

 I’m wondering if Bella, Jamie’s twin might be getting her own book. I like these characters-I want more of them.

 "You know what the second thing I’d teach you would be?” When I shake my head, he drawls, “that dirty distractions are the best distractions. That, sometimes before you go for permanent, you should worry about yourself first."
