She snagged the man of her dreams, her best friend Gavin, and her acceptance to medical school, all in the same summer. Smiling brightly as she steps onto the plane to California, Jersey girl Red, knows it will be hard to be away from everyone she knows and loves, especially Gavin. But that’s okay, because they’re young and in love, and that’s enough…until it isn’t. Three thousand miles from home, with no friends or family around her, she has to figure it out. With distractions around her at every turn, she has to decide what’s best for her. Will she stay the course, or will she be Distracted?
*Author Note* Distracted is not a standalone. Distractions, book #1 must be read first.
When I finished book one I could not wait to get into book 2. It took it awhile for it to come out but it is well worth the wait. This is not your typical book. It is even better! For me, this book is more true to life than anything I've ever read.
Book 1 leaves off with Gavin and Bren leaving Red at the airport. Book 2 picks up at the same place. The author did a great job of giving us the last two chapters of book 1. I assumed that Red was going to fly off in the sky with Jake and do one of two things, either fall in love with Jake while in California or stay true to Gavin and run back home to him. The author took this story in a totally different direction. We get to see the separate lives of Red and Gavin and the trials these two go through. We are introduced to new characters and new problems.
I do not want to give away too much for those who have yet to read it. Just know, this is not your typical read and stay with it. This is actually better than a typical read and had me drawn in quickly. I cannot wait to see where Gavin and Red are going and the rest of these characters!
