|Time doesn’t always heal a broken heart. Sometimes the only thing it does is fill the darkness with more shadows, more pain.
Dylan Thomas has spent the past decade living in the shadows, mourning the loss of his wife, his best friend, his very reason for breathing. He long ago accepted that he would never feel again, that he was damned to a world without light, without hope. That was the day the bottle won, and he gave himself over to the darkness.
Until the one night that rocked his brittle, crumbling world on its axis. She told him what they shared was simply a distraction, a way to forget for a little while. It would’ve been, except the tiny glimpse of how it feels to live again, to feel again, gives him the strength he needs to pull himself up by his boot straps. But sobriety comes one day at a time, and three years later may be three years too late.
Distraction by Nicole Edwards is the final book in the Club Destiny series, but don’t worry, in true Nicole fashion, there’s a spin off coming! Nicole Edwards and Club Destiny was my first introduction to polyamory. Once I got a taste of it and Nicole’s book, I was hooked. Distraction has more emotion than some of her other stories. It’s full of heart, heat, sex, family and love. I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and didn’t want it to end. We’ve known Dylan for a while. He suffered the loss of his wife and he never truly got over it. Sarah also suffered the loss of her husband and she’s trying to put it behind her. Dylan and Sarah have known each other for years. They dated briefly in high school, but things just didn’t work out. They remained friends over the years, but when one night three years ago leads to lustful, emotional sex against the wall, Sarah writes it off as just a distraction on Dylan’s part and they go their separate ways. Dylan spirals out of control while Sarah changes her life drastically. Three years later, they finally come face to face. None of the heat they felt for each other has dissipated, but some of the guilt has. Dylan felt guilty for walking out on her. Sarah was the only woman to make him feel something and he should have fought harder, but he was so caught up in his own loss, he couldn’t find a way out. Sarah never really felt guilty for being with Dylan, but she was still angry with her husband for leaving her. Death of a love can truly alter your way off thinking. It’s never easy to get over but Dylan and Sarah both want to move on and they want to do it together. Can they finally leave the past in the past and have a future together? Can Sarah trust Dylan after all these years? I LOVED this story! Dylan is so much more than I thought he would be. He’s smart and sexy, but he’s haunted. But, he’s learned to control his demons and wants to be happy. And, I love that he’s forty two! Yes! Sarah is sassy and funny and together they are perfect. Their chemistry is off the charts and the one night of passion they share with twin brothers has me fanning myself! Overall, it’s a story of sadness that can overtake you, but you have to fight to get out. You have to want to move forward and live for yourself, your family and friends. You’re never alone if you allow those around you to help alleviate the pain and the burden. It’s a second chance love story with a bumpy road that eventually leads to bliss. Thank you Nicole for Club Destiny. I can’t wait for what’s next!
A do-over. Fuck being a damn distraction. Dylan wanted to be this woman’s everything
“I thought we’d start with an orgasm.”
“For you or me?”
“For both of us.”
“Hmm. An equal opportunity lover. I like that about you.”
“I certainly aim to please.”
