Contemporary Romance – Coming October 23

Add the book to Goodreads



As the successful and driven CEO of Lewis Sporting Goods, Dillon rarely has time to eat a home cooked meal, let alone put any time or effort into maintaining an actual relationship. He’s been living on fumes and casual encounters for so long that finding love and starting a family never even crossed his mind, until his cousins Gabe and Reardon found women who gave them both.

Laurel has been in love with Dillon since she was nine years old. Unfortunately, he’s always seen her as his little sister’s pesky best friend. She can’t stop her heart from beating frantically whenever he’s near, but she’s become an expert at keeping her feelings from everyone, especially Dillon. Her secret has been safe, until now…

When Laurel needs help with her business plan, her best friend urges her to seek help from Dillon. Determined to push her feelings aside and focus on her fledgling business, Laurel knows she needs to do whatever it takes to succeed, even if it means being treated to indifference and big brother teasing from the man she loves.

Can Laurel work with Dillon and still keep her heart intact, or will things get Too Distracting when Dillon realizes what a beautiful, kind, and generous woman she has become?

Too Distracting is the third in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.


First things first.  That cover.  Oh my…and Dillion is a ginger.  *swoon*  And of course, I didn’t read the first two books in the series but no worries if you haven’t.  Ms. Lopez does a great job of getting you all caught up.  I will have to say that I fell in love with Rearden so I might be, okay I bought it, his book.  Not that I didn’t like Gabe but there is something about a character that is a self-confessed nerd and has an obsession with Star Wars.  But I digress…

This book just has all the feels for me.  The tropes are many but here you go,  childhood friends to lovers, enemies to lovers (as children), and best friend’s brother.  I think that about covers it but its so much more than that.  You get a sense of how Dillion and Laurel had really been in love with each other since they were kids.  At least Laurel had been and just when she thought it was too late, Dillion surprised her.  Of course, Jaz (Dillion’s twin sister/Laurel’s BFF) didn’t help matters and how my, I really wanted to slap Jaz at almost the end of the book.   I kinda expected it but still, she had no business doing what she did.

Dillion is a great hero.  He really had the most to grow in terms of his feelings for Laurel.  His journey was slower to build but once he FINALLY figured it out, there was no stopping him.  Men can be dense and he is definitely slow on the uptake.  When the lightbulb went on, I loved it.  All the pranks, all the looks, the conversations from the past…it all made sense to him.  Laurel, I really felt for her.  From her parents basically wanting nothing to do with her.  In fact, the statement from her mother broke my heart.  No wonder she spent so much time with the Lewis’ growing up.  Regardless of her time with Travis (PIG) and the issues with her parents, she is a strong person.  She just needed to figure it out and Dillion was right there with her to guide her.

The rest of the family Gabe, Chloe, Chris, Zoey, and Rearden are a hoot.  They care greatly for each other and it shows.  Jaz, I’m not sure about.  I didn’t like her actions towards the end of the book but overall, she is a great friend to Laurel and a devoted cousin/sibling.  I can’t wait to see who knocks her off her pedestal.  I want to be Shane but who knows.

I highly recommend picking this book up and getting the other books in the series, too.  The pacing is quick, emotions run high at times, the smexy times are perfect and you will just fall in love with the characters.
