I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

After reading Assure Her, I was excited and impatient to read and find out more about His Distraction. Assured Distraction, the band, is coming home from being on tour and there is troubled waters ahead for guitarist Ryan and his girlfriend Krissy. Thia Finn takes us on plenty of twists and turns with this sexy rock star and his turbulent love life on his way to discovering his dream and fame. Ryan's struggles with Krissy are realistic and thoug

I'm so glad Thia reach out to me offering me a copy of His Distraction because I'm freaking loving this series and the characters.

Now let me tell you I really enjoy Assure Her but this one got so much better, the writing was more fluent and I can see this series getting better and better.
So let's talk now about His Distraction. I loved Ryan so much and damn was he hot. I like Peri so much same as I liked Chandler. Now Krissy now she was big freaking BITCH oh how I hate her. Now can we tal

I don’t know now I may fell in love with Ryan all over again. I adored him in book one but in HIS story.... yeah he won me over. The way he treated Peri OMG, and quiet as kept the way he treated Krissy too. That crazy chick had it all and didn't deserve a darn thing. Oh, someone should have popped her one good time. Hayden told her off though and I may have shed a tear for my baby boy. He was a sweetheart. I guess it all worked out for the best but this family dynamic is truly winning me over.

This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. Wow......I wondered how Thia was going to maintain the caliber of storyline in book 2 and I wasn't disappointed. We literally pick up, right where Assure Her leaves off and I was happy with the way the story developed. It's the perfect formula once again - angst, love, hate, mystery, sexual tension and scenes that not only make your brain happy!! This is an entertaining read with appropriate insertions of gut turning, soul searching an ...more

I absolutely love this story!!! Ryan is one amazing man. Krissy is a disaster. I hate her with a passion. Now Peri, is such a strong woman and I love and admire her. Of course Chandler is rocking cause that's just her. This is a great follow up book to Assure Her, which is another Must Read!
Thank you Thia Finn for writing the way you do!

I received and ARC for an honest review

Ryan's relationship starts out as truly horrible with Krissy when I arrives home after his tour. There is no support for his dream, she's crazy and to demanding. When he leaves to go on tour again things become abundantly clear that he is better off without her.
Things between Ryan and Peri, the bands manager, heat up while he's on tour and finally he has found a woman who is supportive and perfect for him. When they make it hom

Review of His Distraction by Thia Finn .
**** 5 Stars ****
This review is written on behalf of BOOKWHORE ADDICT.

Book 2 in the Assured Distraction Series.

After reading the first book in this series and absolutely devouring the pages of it, I wasted no time in plowing into this follow up book

In book 2, Thia Finn explores the bands dynamic while they tour with Ryder Steel in Europe but the hot and heavy relationship between guitarist Ryan and his girlfriend Krissy is the focus of this story. Their r

I loved it. So much drama and craziness!

We have the the rocker who has done everything he can possible do to prove to his girlfriend that he is faithful. Then we have the girlfriend who wants to trap him in a 9-5 job. Anyway she doesn't respect him enough to let him live out his dream as a rocker.

One thing let to another and she dumps him after throwing a tantrum befitted for a five year old. (I'm not her biggest fan and you will learn to hate her sorry ass)

OMG i am so loving this series!!! I think every single character has now nestled inside me, and will stay with me forever!!!
This is Ryan's story...
As i don't give away spoilers, i won't go into details as to what happens in this book... Which is difficult as it does contain a hell of a lot of twists and turns... But every single one falls into place and brings together a brilliant story that contains absolutely everything you need to make it a 10/10 recommend read!!!

Definitely an assured distraction

I really enjoy all the characters in this book. I don't find anything in this one, or the last, that involves too much angst. While I LOVE angst, I find it refreshing to pick up something with not too much, at times. The characters have to deal with issues, but it doesn't ruin their lives or world.

I enjoy the banter between the characters. I also enjoy that the book wasn't overrun with sex scenes. Again, nothing wrong with a good sex scene; I just like to actual

This is the first book I've read of Thia Finn and I can hardly wait to read more.
The beginning of the book seemed to drag a bit for me, but after I got a few chapters in the plot picked up and I was finding it hard to put the book down. This book was well written and steamy hot. Ryan is a sexy, sexy character, who came alive and made the pages sizzle.
I can hardly wait to read more from this author!

I recieved this book from the author for an honest review, as part of the review team at Bookwhore Addicts Blog.
Thia does it again with all the ups and downs of the relationship with Ryan and Peri. I was hooked once again on the AD guys and can't wait to find out more From Gunner, Carter, Cash and Hayden.

So I’m without internet for a few days, and I can’t download new books, so moved on to book two. This one is not any better. On the contrary, this is worse. But hey, I like to torture myself! And I’m bored.

The writer clearly doesn’t know the ins and outs of the music business. Whatever she’s seen on TV and read up on online, is not the reality of things. This is a business I know intimately, and the way the story is written, it just would not happen. Creative license or not, you still need to kn

This is book 2 in the Assured Distraction series and is just as hot as book 1. Thia Finn did it again with this one and pulls you into the story. You will go on tour with AD and Steel in Europe this time and fall in love even more.
In book one we find Ryan in love with his girlfriend Krissy, but their love struggles with him being on the road so much and her not being able to be with him all the time. He stays true to her even when he has girls throwing themselves at him, but Krissy wants more.

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

In this second installment of Assured Distraction series we follow Ryan's journey. In book one Assure Her, we saw that Ryan and his girlfriend Krissy were having struggles with him being on the road so much. So when Krissy expresses her desire for Ryan to drop his "boy band" he struggles with what he wants and what she wants. So she gives him an ultimatum which he ignores and goes on his European tour, where does that leave them?

Overall, I loved the story. My problem is not with the story but the way it was printed and the fact that there were grammatical errors (I hate grammar errors in books). The way it was printed totally jacked up the writing. I would be reading and in the middle of a sentence it would just start a new paragraph and keep going. Same sentence but a new paragraph with and indent and all. I tried to ignore it but it threw me for a loop how no one would notice such a huge error. Maybe I'm just weird li ...more

After reading the first book in this series I was hooked on these rock stars and needed more and His Distraction definitely gave me that. We delve into Ryan's story and the mess that his life is about to become as the band head out to their biggest break yet. Ryan's story is full of heartbreak, angst, secrets and lets not forget this man heats up the sheets like no other. Ryan will show us his tender side and when he finds what is ultimately his true love that his loyalty to this woman will show ...more

Sexy and gorgeous rockstar Ryan was dating Krissy but she was a screaming nightmare of a girlfriend who didn’t want Ryan going on tour with his band. As the band got more famous she became more argumentative and nasty. So the night before their European tour Krissy broke up with him. Their tour manager and friend Peri had also broke up with her boyfriend and two soulmates collided. This story had a few twists and turns. It had a good flow and it was sweet and romantic with a good ending. I can’t ...more

So good and so complicated

Oh goodness this book is so full of complicated relationships. Ryan really needed to open his eyes and loose that girl. She was not supportive of him in any way and was just not the girl for him. I am so happy Peri stepped in to support Ryan when she did. Oh my then it all gets complicated and so drama filled good! Can't wait to read more from this author!!
Oooh wow loving the series but what can go wrong for poor Ryan well his long term girlfriend Krissy can be a nasty piece just before he goes on tour with the band so he breaks up with her.

On tour he finds attraction to there new appointed manager Peri shes been apart of the company for years now in a new position as the tour manager.

And things are getting steamy between her and Ryan then a mess when they come home with Krissy what's the issue and secret well you need to read to find out.

This was a good follow-up to book 1 and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was glad that Peri and Ryan found each other and had an hea. I also liked the angst of Krissy being pregnant and the shocker after her baby boy arrives.

An all around good story but the editing leaves much to be desired.

I'm really loving this series. The characters are so real, foibles and strengths and goofy jokes. Ryan and Peri are so wonderful together. Krissy is a raving witch! The story-line is great and the writing is really good. This book kept me turning the pages until I got to the end. Great job Thia Finn! ...more

Tour stop 2

This tour stop is Ryan's story. After a nasty break up, he finds a new love with Petri. But is the old love out of the picture. The story is steady paced as the drama unfolds and leads to happily ever for Ryan and the band
