My name is Ryen Macek. I’m twenty-eight years old, live in Atlanta, Georgia and live a fairly normal life.

Anyway, like most women, I’ve dated and it’s always turned out badly. Most recently that would be Aaron, who decided to trample on my heart in the form of a woman wearing a sheet. Not that I’m bitter, mind you, but, well, I sort of am.

I decided I needed a

Meg's Review:
Reading this entire novel was like a breath of fresh air. I couldn't get enough of it. Juli found her niche with this novel and it shows in the writing.



Ryen. I don't even know where to start with this girl. She is hilarious. The way the book starts just has you in complete stitches. It is like watching a train wreck. She is just such a mess you can't help yourself from laug

This book is filled with everything in a great book. You have fame, scandals, mobsters, inheritance, legacies, and PASSION. No spoilers here just know that when you open this open you will not want to put it down do make sure you have nothing planned for the day and rest assure when you read the final print Juli is already working on book 2. I loved it from start to finished. The characters were developed beautifully and there is enough information given to make you feel as if you know the scene ...more

Ahhhhhh. SO glad this book is finally out and available for the masses to read!
What a well written, original story! I am a total Juli fan and once again she has created something amazing. What is better than a little mob, a sexy man, a unique girl, a crazy love story .. eekkkk.

Read this book, it is great. I can not wait for the next installment in this story!!!

I was recommended this book by a friend of mine, and thank God I was!! She knows exactly what I like and I had to read this write away. It is definitely a series I will continue to read as soon as the next is released. This book had me laughing and I loved both main characters.

Ryen is awesome. She has had her heartbroken and was then dating a huge gamer. She needed a break after breaking up with him and heads back to New York. Who would have thought that a chance meeting at the airport bar woul

She's done it again. I just couldn't put this book down! I literally laughed out loud several times. I loved the story line between her and her New York "distraction". I even enjoyed the conversations she would occasionally have between her and herself in her head. (everyone's been there haha). The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that I couldn't buy the second book right away to find out what happens. However, I know it's coming so I guess I will just have to be patient. Great read, a ...more

This book was such a great distraction! A nice vacation from my busy hectic life! I am so ready for the second one to come out...i cannot wait to find out if she ever finished Kingdom Hearts! I mean come on! Did you have to leave us in suspense like that? ;) but all joking aside i really cant wait to see whats in store for these two. I'm sure the next one will be amazing just like the other stories i've read from Miss Juli. So hurry up with the next one please!!!!

Seriously a cliffhanger? Really? Besides that this book was alright to me it was a slow start things didn't really starting cooking until Dane walked in on the scene, "no. When it's a date, you'll know. I'll be paying then too." Even then though it was still kind of slow, things really started getting heated about 80% into the book. Dane is a passionate man, "suddenly someone cleared their throat behind Dane. "Ignore them - they'll go away," he growled into my open mouth before deepening the kis ...more

Greatest Distraction is a nice story! The book is pretty slow to start, but it is well written. I really like the main character - Ryen. She's strong, sassy, and funny. I can relate to her - as she isn't pretentious. I like the initial scene between her and Dane as well because you can just see that happening! But when they finally meet up again, that's when the book starts to get heated. I would have liked them to be introduced earlier in the story, as I think that would have raised the amount ...more

I really loved this book! Very well written and the characters are awesome! I can easily relate to the characters and I love that it is serious, funny, and sexy! The ending was satisfying, but the Epilogue not so much. No I need to read the next one! I cannot wait! This is a must read, very refreshing!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I love this book! It's got humor, love, and a mobster. Ryen is so funny and Brian "Dane" is her perfect match and distraction. Juli Valenti is a wonderful writer. I can't wait to read the next book and find out what happens with this couple.

I could not put this down. I love the characters, I love the relationships, and I love the drama :) I was so glad the second one was already available when I finished, because I needed more Ryen & Dane, and you will, too.
