A Beautiful Distraction (Hard Feelings #3) by Kelsie Leverich: Blog Tour Excerpt & Giveaway


A brand new novel in the New York Times bestselling Hard Feelings series—where nothing’s more dangerous than a bad boy with a broken heart…

First Sergeant Rafe Murano did everything to the extreme. He trained harder, he fought harder, and, unfortunately, he loved harder. And falling for the wrong woman nearly destroyed him.

Home from a deployment, and without his missions to consume him, Murano is ravaged by memories of his heartbreak. So he drinks until he’s numb and drowns himself in meaningless one-night stands. But they only take the edge off…

Until he meets Fallon.

Haunted by her past, Fallon Kelly knows all too well about the desperate desire for an escape. So when she sees the tatted-up bad boy who’s one punch away from a ride in the back of a squad car, she offers a distraction—one that quickly becomes an addiction.

Little does she know, this bad boy can love so hard, it can break her…

An uncharted electric current was crackling between them. She could feel her heart stutter unevenly against her chest while his eyes caressed hers with an unspoken profession that she didn’t understand. But she was powerless to look away from him. She was aware of the isolated moment they were spelled under, and she was aware of the tangible tension penetrating from everyone around them, but Rafe didn’t seem to care. He didn’t seem to mind the attention he’d silently drawn to himself; as if Fallon was the only one of importance at that moment.

She tried to breathe as gracefully as possible, but it was useless. She was suffocating, confused by the desperation in Rafe’s eyes. Confused because, even while she was incapable of looking away from him, she didn’t want to.

His hand lifted slowly, as if she were a feral cat he was trying to capture, as if his movements would startle her. Brushing his thumb over her bottom lip, he smiled. That one, dexterous touch melted her. Her body warmed from the inside out.

“I want you,” he whispered, his voice dripping with a desirous hunger as his lips tenderly swept over her jaw. When he raised his head back to look at her, his velvet eyes swam with a heady lust that forced every nerve, every sense to sharpen and bind to him. “Okay?” She helplessly nodded. Whatever hypnotic force had just overcome her, she welcomed it. Rafe chuckled quietly, the vibrations seeping into her as he shook against her. “Good.”

His words reassured her. The look in his eyes told her everything she didn’t know she needed to hear.
