Overview

Distraction: The great intensity, novelty, or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention.

Sven is a man who takes pride in his ability to separate himself from his emotions. He's a man who knows who he is and where he's going in life, a man who needs no one, because needing someone, anyone, is a weakness.

His past taught him love isn't enough.

Maggie wants the happily ever after, but has never picked the right men, or stuck around long enough, to build a forever. It's always been easier to get out early, before emotions make things messy.

When Maggie wakes up naked in Sven's bed, with no memory of the night before, these two must be honest about their feelings and face their fears, so they can build a future together.

Will love be enough for them to get their happy ending together, or will a threat from outside strike them down before they ever have a chance?

This book contains an over the top alpha who knows what he wants, it also contains sexual situations that may not be suitable for younger audiences.

Story was okay. Hard to buy the cuteness of the female character, but main problem was serious lack of editing oversight (ex: "we're" instead of "were"), such simple errors that should have been caught by any beta reader or even an editor. Very off putting.

I had some drama with my Nook app when I first bought this book, but it was well worth the wait! OMG Sven is the prefect cross between tough Alpha and big softie. I loved the real life family drama that Maggie had and how they overcome it, it really just made the characters seem even more real. Aurora Rose Reynolds does it again, as far as I'm concerned. Now I just have to impatiently wait for her next one.

Kai is still my fave but once this story gets going it is good. Frustrated towards the end witj Justin. I felt clueless because past of this book clearly overlaps with what will be his story.

I'm not sure how Aurora does it but she has wrote another wondeful book. Sven and Maggie are great and I love how Maggie isn't perfect. she's not this tiny person and she admits that she has things wrong with her. If you've read her other books then you know how great they are. If not, then you are missing out and I recommend you start at the beginning.

Another great work by Ms. Reynolds! Sven is a great example of alpha male with a heart. And Maggie...what a woman! These characters were so real, it was like they were right with me. Impatiently awaiting the next addition to these great works!

Aurora Rose Reynolds has done it once again! Sven is a swoon worthy Alpha male. Maggie is strong and sassy woman, who won't be pushed around by anyone. I will not give any spoilers but will say I loved this book. Definitely a 5 star read just as all of her books are. Aurora Rose Reynolds is on of my all time favorite authors and you will not be disappointed with any of her books....Can't wait for Justin's story!

Okay, I’m not going to lie here, I’ve been waiting for Sven. He’s was always so mysterious in everyone else’s story. So when we were told his would be coming soon, I was super excited. I couldn’t wait to see the kind of girl who could tame him. I also couldn’t wait to see how he would treat that girl. I didn’t expect Maggie. She’s a bit of a contradiction, really. One minute she’s feisty and fierce, the next minute you get a glimpse at her insecurities. She’s a persistent little thing, I will say that. I don’t want to give away the story, but there are things about her that surprise me. So, opening scene, you’re immediately thinking-Sven. Whadda douche!- No joke. But if you’ve been keeping up with the Until series as well as Underground Kings, you know Sven is who he is. He makes no excuses, and he doesn’t have to. That is part of the reason I’ve been dying to get my hands on his story. It was actually quite entertaining to watch him fall in love. Okay, these two, from the very beginning you can see their chemistry. Of course, with most stories of love, there will be misunderstandings. There will be issues. And that ending….Woah! I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoy the Alpha males and their feisty women. Time to see for yourself if these two make it to the over the hurdles finish line.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆ OMG! Whenever I see Aurora Rose Reynolds name on a book, I grab it and start reading as fast as I can. As usual she did not disappoint me with her newest book, Distraction. To say I loved the book is a misnomer, it was phenomenal, outstanding, fantastic, unbelievable! Not only do we find out more about Sven and meet Maggie, but we also get to revisit some of our favorite characters from previous books in the Underground Kings series. All the previous alpha males and their other halves are present with glimpses into their lives and closure to problems that involve them. When Maggie came walking into his night club, Sven knew his days were numbered! He could deny it, but she was his. He has always been able to separate his emotional self from those around him and right now he needs to keep his head clear and in the game, or he could end up dead. But the more involved he becomes with Maggie the more he refuses to let her go, she is his forever! All he has to do is keep her safe, stick to the plan and take care of business. Maggie is a good girl that just has bad taste in men! So when she went looking for the guy that drugged her sister while she was out clubbing, Maggie never dreamed that she would meet a man like Sven. When he becomes her protector and boss, things take on another level of intensity! Is this the one she has been waiting for? There are so many twist, turns and lots of kink that the reader becomes throughly enmeshed within the story. Each character is created for a specific roll in the flow of the plot and are fashioned to enhance the drama and mystery. The scenes sizzle with heat and sexual innuendoes. I cannot wait to read what comes next! Fantastic addition to my Aurora Rose Reynolds library!

5 star I was pulled right into this story. This story contains heartbreak, betrayal, and suspense. If you have not already read the below I recommend reading them first: Assumption (Underground Kings, #1) Obligation (Underground Kings #2) This is Maggie and Sven's story. Maggie meets Sven when she goes to his club after her sister is attacked. Can she find the person who did it? After taking down a customer Sven hires her to be his assistant to keep her out of trouble. Maggie is just trying to protect her sister and get her the help she needs. When someone comes after Maggie Sven decides to keep her even closer. Can he keep his hands to himself? Or does Maggie want him also? What happens when he wants her to choose? Can she really choose or will asking her to choose be the end of them? Can he protect her even if she is not with him? Or will he be able to get her back if she runs? I highly recommend this story and this series. Can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next.

"Perfect is unattainable and an unrealistic expectation. No one is perfect, and if you think they are, you will be let down when you see they are flawed, just like everyone else." The blurb sounds promising, and it is Aurora Rose Reynolds – so I knew I just have to read this one. Their first meeting was pretty much unforgettable. Here comes Maggie, in pajamas, getting some justice for what happened to her sister in Sven’s club. Sven got intrigued about her, and went with the suggestion from his team to employ her. What I love about this book are the characters. Maggie is a great heroine. She’s not helpless, she’s brave, witty and pretty much can hold up on her own. She’s an amazing sister, and despite her sister’s failure, she’s willing to look past through it and give her sister one chance after the other. She doesn’t give up on her. As for Sven, he’s one hot alpha male who knows how to take care of his woman in and out of bed. Their chemistry was pretty much off the charts ever since their first meeting. I love how their relationship turned out – I love their banters. Perhaps everything about their relationship, except for that one missing important night of their lives which I think deserved more than missing patches of memories. Aw. I would have love if we are given some flashbacks. Although I have some issues with the storyline, some might felt a little rush and some skips – it was still an enjoyable read that I finished in one sitting. If you love some fun, romantic, fast and steamy read, Aurora Rose Reynolds is the one for you.

AMAZING!!! Distraction is the third book in the Underground Kings series and it's Sven and Maggie's story. Sven owns several businesses in Las Vegas and is a player. He uses women for sex and doesn't want a relationship. Until Maggie storms into her life and changes everything. Maggie goes to Sven's club in search of the man that drugged her sister. There, she meets Sven. He tries to make her leave the club, but Maggie is stubborn and returns night after night trying to find her sister's drugger. Soon, Maggie and Sven grow close and he offers her a job as his assistant. But things start to change between them and their relationship starts to blossom into something more than friendship. Will Maggie find her happily ever after with Sven or will he continue with his player ways? Distraction is an amazing book with a fantastic story. It is full of drama, action, laughter and steamy scenes. It is full of emotion and hooks the reader from the first page. The prologue was heartbreaking! I loved that Distraction was told from Sven's and Maggie's POVs. Sven... Oh, Sven! I loved him! When you read the prologue, you immediatly understand why he doesn't want to fall in love. He is a total alpha: he is hot and sexy, strong, fierce, protective and possessive. But also so sweet and gentle with Maggie. Swoon!!! I loved Maggie. She had a difficult childhood, but she grew up strong, fierce and very sassy. She is very stubborn and independent, but also very loyal, sweet and kind. Aurora Rose Reynolds delivers another amazing book, with a fantastic story and awesome characters. I love her writing style. You really connect with the story and the characters and you can't help but fall in love with them. I love that all her books are somehow connected and we get glimpses of the characters we met before. And now I can't wait to read Justin's story!

What Worked For Me: What can I say? Distraction is another perfect example of why I love the characters and stories Aurora Rose Reynolds writes. Maggie has to be one of my all-time favorite heroines. She is plucky and fierce and I love her determination and sassiness that keeps Sven on his toes. She isn’t a simpering female character but she is crafty and willing to do whatever it takes to care for her sister and family. And her relationship with Sven? It is wrought with amazing sexual chemistry and tons of zany banter that make this book unique and smoldering. Sven, our hero, is simply swoon-worthy. I love, love, love the way he is with Maggie. Even when he fights his attraction to Maggie, his reaction to her and all the things she does and says, tugs at heartstrings and makes you sigh with envy. Together these characters make an unstoppable duo in a book filled with dramatic scenes, gut-wrenching story lines, and an ending the makes you long to do the whole journey over again. This is another solid and brilliant book written by Ms. Reynolds. Distraction proves, once again, why she is the queen of steamy and scintillating romance that will keep you simultaneously gasping for breath and sighing in bliss. What Didn’t Work For Me: There are a few instances where there is scene jumping. One second they are in a heated embrace and the next they are in the kitchen. However, as a whole, it did not detract from the story. Would I Recommend This Book: Yes!

I've been chomping at the bit to read this!!!! The little snippets that are given leave you begging for more! Sven and Maggie's relationship have a snarky sarcastic silly and absolutely loving tone to it. Aurora has a habit of writing her books so well that you will convinced that they are really out there in vegas, Tennessee, Hawaii or anywhere else she bases her books on. If you haven't read any of her books yet don't start with this one!!! Work your way to this one!!! Start with until November and so on. But no matter what you do buy this and read it!!!!!!

Do you have a fan? Because I need one. Sven ... WHOOO! That is one fine specimen of alpha! Distraction is my favorite of the Underground Kings series, and lemme tell you why. Sven and Maggie. I know, I know, you're thinking "That doesn't tell me anything!" But IT DOES! Because these two characters are like a peanut putter parfait ... layers and layers of yummy goodness, each one different and distinct from the others, yet they blend so damn well. (I would have said onion for the layer thing, but seriously, who they hell wants to be compared to a smelly vegetable that makes you cry. Seriously?) Maggie is a spit-fire goddess that can bring a man to his knees while leaving catty, judgmental witches in the dust. So what if she's not some skinny-mini? She puts the VOOM in VA-VA-VA-VOOM! She's also devoted, smart, and loving. Oh, and she sticks to her guns - you gotta LOVE that! Sven puts her is a horrible position and she doesn't cave, she puts him in his place. "That's not love, Sven. You asking that of me is not love." But you know what? I still love Sven. I do. Because, while he may have said some less than fab things, it was out of fear and devotion. Sign me up! I want a hot-as-hell, rich, alpha-male devoted to ME! He's dealt with a lot in his life, and he doesn't want to be dragged down the same (or even close to similar) path ever again. I don't blame him, either. Their story is exciting, romantic, and fun to read. I'll admit I felt the last bit was a smidge drawn out and slightly dull, the rest of the story and the end totally makes up for it. Plus, PLUS, we get all four (Kenton, Justin, Kai, and Sven) in one book! SWOON
