So instead of doing the book he's supposed to, he talks her into traveling on his boat, eating out, and having sex. I didn't think there would be sex in this book because on Smashwords, it's not labeled as being for mature readers, though to be fair, 'sexy' is in the keywords. It's just that I've seen some clean romances labeled as sexy and assumed there was a lot of kissing and maybe some necking going on, which is what I'm used to finding. The only reason I bring this up in the review is to let the reader know I think this is a book for a mature audience. I don't have a problem with sex but I know some people would rather not read it.
Overall, it was a fun read with lots of great humor because Stephen has a certain charm about him that is hard to resist. And surprisingly, he is able to bring in a good income. I couldn't imagine how because of the way he procrastinates, but the author explains it so I won't give that one away.
Madeline Sloane's book, "Distracted," is a pleasant surprise. Erin, her leading lady, is a highly educated, well-rounded young lady whom, for the most part, has a good head on her shoulders. Her only distraction seems to be the one person (Stephen) she was hired to light a fire under to produce the promised novel.
I enjoyed traveling along with Erin and Stephen from D.C. to the Outer Banks, and from the Florida Keys to mountains of Pennsylvania, on their journey as they find themselves -- and each other -- during one tantalizing adventure after another.
I look forward to Ms. Sloane's next novel.
Stephen Spence leads an idyllic life. A renowned artist, he is wealthy enough to spend his days sailing, painting, spending time with friends, or just lazing about.
Enter Erin Andersen, whose mission is to get Spence to finish a book about his art that he has committed to writing. DISTRACTED is the perfect name for this book, as Spence helps Erin learn to live life in a more meaningful way --without deadlines.
Ms. Sloane does a great job creating realistic, witty characters. The story is fresh, the settings are unique and I feel like I need to sign up for sailing lessons or at least look for a hot man with a catamaran! We should all get a chance to be distracted like this.
I am looking forward to more books by Ms. Sloane. If you are a fan of Ruthie Knox or Penny Reid you will love this book.
I think what was most enjoyable was that Ms. Sloane didn't "dumb down" the story; her style is refreshing, tantalizing, and current. I'll be looking forward to her next release!
