The Distraction by Sierra Kincade
Release Date: February 3, 2015
Book Two in the Body Works Trilogy
The seductive story that started in The Masseuse continues...
Anna Rossi knows that opening your heart only gets you hurt. But Alec Flynn is just too good to resist…
It’s been three long months since Anna’s seen Alec, since he saved her life and lit up her soul with unquenchable desire. Being without him has left her on edge, but his bravery has motivated her to change her life and go after what she’s always wanted—a job where she can help people. She can’t wait to show Alec the woman she’s become in his absence, or to prove how much she’s missed him…
Three months away has done nothing to slake Alec’s need for Anna. Unfortunately, it hasn’t made his life any less dangerous. The last thing he wants to do is hurt Anna, but if giving her up is the only way to save her, he’s not sure he can do that either. He’s determined to have her for as long as he can. Except his past is creeping up on him faster than he knows, and this time he may not be able to keep her from becoming collateral damage…
Oh goodness. Where do I even start? This book… this book gave me all the feels. If you haven’t read book one, The Masseuse, stop reading this now and go read it! You will not be disappointed. Especially after meeting super hot, super alpha, “neighborhood watch”, Alec.
Book two begins pretty much right where the first book ended. Alec is away, and Anna is trying to fill that void. When Alec comes home things are a bit rocky, but their intense physical connection fixes all the unspoken problems between them.
“You smell like sandalwood,” he said. “You bite your lip when you’re nervous.” His fingers moved slowly to my hip. “You think you’re afraid of being left because your mom fucked you up, but really you’re afraid of being the one who leaves. I know the sounds you make when I’m inside of you,” he said, stepping closer, and moving the towel out from between us. “And I know it tears me up when you cry. I don’t know everything about you, Anna. But if you give me time, I will.
CAN ALEC BE ANYMORE PERFECT?!
Basically, without giving too much information away, there are people that still want Alec dead. Alec is doing everything imaginable to keep Anna out of it, but things come up that could put everyone’s life in danger.
Once again this story was written so flawlessly. I was captivated in Alec and Anna’s story and I felt everything they felt. Alec is the perfect character. All too often I read books where the hero of the story has no idea what he wants. Alec knows exactly what he wants and it’s so refreshing to read. Anna is also a strong heroine. She is confident and brought the perfect amount of humor to the story. Also, just look at the cover. It's beautiful! I cannot wait until the 3rd and final book!

Mrs. Alcide: Describe The Body Works trilogy in one sentence:
Sierra Kincade: Ooh that's tough...how about, Sassy masseuse falls for bodyguard with baggage in this tense, erotic thriller. (Ok, I'm awful at this, I know.)
MA: Where did you get the inspiration to write this series?
SK: I feel like this is a loaded question...Haha! I am ever inspired by naughty love stories and late night Skinamax. Also, Benadict Cumberbatch in Sherlock Holmes. (Not that Alec is anything like him...)
MA: A lot of authors use celebrities or models for character inspiration. Do you have a celebrity or model you’ve used for Alec or Anna?
SK: I may or may not have thought about Henry Cavill while writing Alec. And if I'm thinking about Henry Cavill being Alec, the part of Anna is most definitely played by me.
MA: Do you listen to music or have a playlist for The Body Works trilogy?
SK: I did play Gorilla by Bruno Mars like 50 times while writing...though I'm mostly a write in silence kind of person. Boring, I know! But the truth is, every time I heard a love song, or a sexy song, I was inspired. Music is a huge help to get the...er...juices flowing. KnowwhatImean?
MA: What book in this trilogy was your favorite to write? Why?
SK: I loved writing all of them so much. There were days I could not wait to get back to my laptop to work on the story. That said, the opening in THE DISTRACTION always makes me giggle, and the third book always makes me teary. It's just been a really fun, emotional experience all around.
MA: Is Alec’s character based on anyone you know? (please say yes and send him to me.) :)
SK: Haha! Not telling! Actually, he's purely fictional. I think it was Stephen King that said something along the lines of never basing characters on real people unless you want to get sued or shot on your way to the mailbox.
MA: Do you plan to write any books about the secondary characters?
SK: Eek! I just finished editing Amy's story! I love it so much, and hope to share it in the future. Amy is Anna's best friend in the Body Work series and she was The Most Fun side character to write. Love her!
MA: Any crazy habits while you write?
SK: Besides eating everything that's in sight and refilling my caffeine IV? Not really.
MA: Do you read while you write? Any books you’d love to recommend? Do you have any go-to authors?
SK: I recently read a Christina Lauren book (DIRTY ROWDY THING) that was so, so great! And I love the M. Pierce books too!
MA: Tell us something fun about yourself:
SK: I am currently, while I type this, dying my hair neon pink. So, there's that.
This or That:
1. Ian Somerholder or Charlie Hunnam?
SK: Oh god. Both. At the same time. Wait, what? I'm forever a Jax girl! Come to me, Charlie!
2. Paperback or E-Reader?
SK: E-reader for my smut, paperback for everything else!
3. Alec or Mike?
SK: Again, um, both? Pretty please?
4. Contemporary or Erotica?
5. Soda or Coffee?
SK: Neither, I'm a tea drinker!
SK: Neither, I'm a tea drinker!
