I’m starting to really like this series. The series starts a bit rocky, but The Distraction, totally blew me away.

First off, I’ve been in a suspenseful kick lately, so I really enjoyed that element in the book. I also like that this was just about Alec and Anna.

The Distraction is a true romance story

I hate you Sierra Kincade. I really do. I hate you for making me love these characters and then leaving me with all the feelings in this second book.

The Masseuse introduced us to Anna and Alec… they can only be described as combustible together… I mean the chemistry between these two is ridiculous. But Alec was paying the price for his involvement in some shady things in book 1 and Anna is left to figure out where they stand when he gets home.

This series is one of the best I’ve read in a long time. I’m putting it up there with Crossfire and the Driven Trilogy. Which is perhaps one of the greatest compliments I feel I can give any series. So there. I said it. It’s as Good As Gideon.

Saying that I was looking forward to the release of this book is a bit of an understatement. My level of emotional investment in these characters is a little embarrassing and I was a bit like a kid on Christmas on release day.

I would say that if any couple I've read about could be described as combustible, it's Alec and Anna. Chemistry... well, that would put what these two have to shame. And with the connection that this couple has with one another, you want nothing more than to see them happy and settled together. Sadly, it seems that Sierra Kincade is determined to kill me slowly and make me wait for their happy. The Distraction sent me wildly shifting from fist pumping to panty adjusting to tear wiping.

An absolutely INTOXICATING read! Full of so much intrigue and raw sexuality, The Distraction, book two in the amazing Body Works Trilogy, had me falling head over heals for these complex, beautiful characters. With such a nail-biting story line and some of the most intense sex scenes I have ever read, this series is becoming one of my all time favorites!

Anna's hero and lover is finally returning to her. Will he feel the same towards her? Will there still be that undeniable chemistry and lust bet
3.5 Stars

Having your boyfriend in jail sucks. Just ask Anna Rossi. She's been counting down the days until Alec Flynn is released and she's not very patient. But when Alec is released, Anna doesn't count on the awkwardness that follows them around. Add in the danger of such a high profile case and you have a very emotional roller coaster of a ride.

I definitely enjoyed this installment more than the first. And I think that was mostly in part to Anna. She grew as a character in this book and becam

What the WHAT!!! OMG that end. I'm pretty sure that Sierra Kincade is slightly evil.

The Distraction by Sierra Kincade is the second book in The Body Works trilogy and if you haven’t started this one yet, you are definitely missing out! It has two great (read: not perfect) characters, some mystery, and a lot of the sexy/swoony stuff. If you haven’t read book one, The Masseuse, stop here because I can’t promise that there won’t be spoilers.

Following on from the amazing first book The Masseuse, this is a great sophomore release and was very enjoyable and even more action packed than the first one.

Continuing on with Anna and Alec's story, we find ourselves a few months later with Alec's release from prison only days away, when they are finally reunited it's not too long before they both realise that the danger is far from over, to stop Alec from testifying against his former boss Maxim Stein they are targeting Anna as a way to punis

This was a DNF for me. I may go back to it at another time. I really liked the first book. It was not what I expected. The issue for me with book 2 is that too much time is spent with Anna and Alec trying to reconnect after 3 months apart, that there was no storyline at 37% when I stopped. It took me a week to get that far so I had to put it down. I could tell that there was something that was going to happen with Trevor but wish it had been sooner.

So this book was just as good as the first. Great smut and the plot continued right where The Masseuse left off. Towards the end I started seriously side eyeing the FBI agents assigned to Alec and I'm sorry to say Anna as well. I'm not mad at how this book ended one bit. There's only so much shit Anna could take no matter how good the orgasms were. ...more

4 Distracted Stars!!!

When I first read The Masseuse I liked it but didn't love it, as Anna drove me a bit batty with her wishy washy ways and her constantly always running. But now in The Distraction, Anna's finally rooted and is staying put for once which gave her more strength. With this I finally started to like her more and more.

In the Masseuse, Anna falls in love for it only to be taken away when Alec has to go to jail.
The Distraction took me on a roller coaster ride of epic proportions. One minute I'm rooting for Alec and Anna and the next I'm yelling at Anna to run in the opposite direction. Seriously, what have you done to me Sierra Kincade? Never have I been so confused as to how I wanted the story to play out in my entire life (except for maybe when it came to a certain Mr. Cross from another of my favorite series)... And now I have to sit here biting my nails to see if Alec and Anna can overcome all odds ...more

Part two of the triology about Anna and Alec. The previous book ended with Alec going to prison for 3 months in a plea deal and Anna having to manage to live without the man she loves with all her self doubts. The book were published in 2013, when the Obama Administration had managed to corrupt most of the government, but even with the partisan and inept Comey as head of FBI, there are enough rank and file G-men who would have made sure that Alec, their star witness would not have been put in pr ...more

This book was not long enough for me! I have never craved more of a story in my entire life !!!! (Yes, I know there’s a third book) As I was reading this, I caught myself slipping into an alternate reality! I envisioned multiple ways, that it could’ve gone differently. I cannot thank this author enough. Someone who finally gave characters passion, heroism, and vulnerability. I love the push and pull between them all.

Ms. Kincade has a way with words. Even though this novel is categorized as contemporary romance, I would say it edges more on the erotic side. And although it is more erotic, it’s not like most erotic novels out there. There’s an actual story in there, and it’s great. There’s suspense, sadness, healing, and steaminess. You can tell that these two people need that physical connection often to say what they cant, and it’s different every time.

Hands down to Sierra Kincade for that ending! I like this book a lot, there was just something keeping me from loving it. As The Masseuse this story is a page turner. I couldn't put it down, I was desperate to know how everything was going to turned out. This story is definitely a roller-coaster of emotions, so many up and downs. So much mystery and action. I have to say that it keep me at the edge of my seat. I fell more in love with story an

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 be

The Distraction is the second novel in Sierra's Body Works trilogy starring Anna and Alec. The beginning jumps ahead a few months in time from the ending of The Masseuse but we're informed throughout the novel of events during that time we missed while Alec was "away". Sierra is a suspense Queen! You never know if one of the sub-characters are who they say they are and she has you second guessing every decision made becau

Michelle's Review:

“The Distraction” is the second book in The Body works trilogy, by Sierra Kincade, and if the first book was a rollercoaster, this one is a tug- of –war. If you have not read book one, stop now go read it and come back to this review. You might read something that will be a spoiler for book one. This series is one of my all-time favorites, the writer has a strong attention to detail and the story is woven together seamlessly.

The Distraction was a very sensual contemporary romance that had me hooked even quicker then the first book and I didn't think that was possible. The chemistry between Alec and Anna is smoldering, and undeniable. This was a powerful and emotionally inspiring read that touched on the very important subject of domestic violence.

Ok, not sure what to say about this one.

It was good, with lots of action and sexy times. I really liked how their relationship was growing, finally able to make some kind of plans for the future, among all the uncertainty that Alec brought after jail.

The thing is, I’m not sure what it was that didn’t let me completely enjoy it. I felt there was a lot of ‘I have to let you go because I love you’ going on. And that usually bothers me a lot. I get the guy was in danger, and that made An
