Four Boundless Stars
Beautiful Distraction, is a really great telling of a pure romance, instant connection. I really feel instant connections are possible. This isn't the same ol' instant connection though.
Ava is strong willed, has an exhausting career. She rarely does anything for herself. One fateful day she meets a man. Because said man runs into her old car with his Lamborghini. From that point on, she couldn't stop thinking of said man.
The story is really hilarious, mixed with love and of course those steamy scenes. When you think you know what's going to happen, then JC is like haha no you don't. I like the unexpected from stories. Because if not, it's the same old story.
"... I believe that we know when the right person comes along, that love doesn't need to be sought and found. It'll find you when it finds you."
Overall, I give this story four boundless stars. I'm glad that Sara didn't steal this book for herself.
