Summary

As the successful and driven CEO of Lewis Sporting Goods, Dillon rarely has time to eat a home cooked meal, let alone put any time or effort into maintaining an actual relationship. He's been living on fumes and casual encounters for so long that finding love and starting a family never even crossed his mind, until his cousins Gabe and Reardon found women who gave them both.  

Laurel has been in love with Dillon since she was nine years old. Unfortunately, he's always seen her as his little sister's pesky best friend. She can't stop her heart from beating frantically whenever he's near, but she's become an expert at keeping her feelings from everyone, especially Dillon. Her secret has been safe, until now....

When Laurel needs help with her business plan, her best friend urges her to seek help from Dillon. Determined to push her feelings aside and focus on her fledgling business, Laurel knows she needs to do whatever it takes to succeed, even if it means being treated to indifference and big-brother teasing from the man she loves.  

Can Laurel work with Dillon and still keep her heart intact, or will things get too distracting when Dillon realizes what a beautiful, kind, and generous woman she has become?  

Too Distracting is the third in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.

Short enjoyable listen

Audio-book: Narrator – Lacy Laurel Great narration with so many characters! This narrator did an excellent job of bringing the story of Dillon and Laurel to life. I never had a moment where I wasn’t pulled completely into the story as her voice adapted to each character and each situation. This was an enjoyable story of two people who had grown up together. Laurel had tormented Dillon and as a result he’s a bit gun shy around her now. However, when they spend the weekend together during an out of town conference, Dillon’s seeing her in a whole new way. While I liked this couple, I’m not a huge fan of the heroine chasing the hero which is a large portion of this book. That aside, I did enjoy Dillon and Laurel and the steps that occurred to bring them together. Secondary characters were amazing and this is a very fast paced story. The steam is about mid-level and it had a very nice ending. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Dual POV

Didn't do it for me

AUDIO- Unfortunately the narrator helped ruin an okay story. Since there were so many characters, there should've either been a second narrator or one with better range. SHE WAS TOO DISTRACTING!! WRITING- The writing style was good, some parts were funny but couldn't be appreciated because of the narrator. I thought it developed appropriately, though I wish it was a full length book. LOVE INTERESTS- Dillion, the good guy main character used Karen (and other women) as a distraction from lonileness and (IMO) from who/what he ultimately wanted. Guess it's a trend in romance books. Laurel was a little juvenile with low self-esteem but I guess it's to be expected given her history. Either way, it should have been a greater turn off for Dillion, especially since she was his sisters friend. Eh.. OVERALL- It was just okay. Worth a credit? No...read it yourself. Note: I received a credit for an honest review.

Fun and Flirty

Dillon Lewis is the co-owner of Lewis Sporting Goods, him and his sister run the business and are trying to expand. Things are busy in their lives and travelling is constant when scouting for a new location. Laurel is Dillon's sister's best friend, they have all grown up together and according to Dillon Laurel is just this annoying little girl his sister has always been friends with. The two girls used to prank Dillon endlessly as kids. Laurel has always been in love with Dillon and Dillon is completely blind to it, even though he is the only one. However, now they are both adults and Laurel is a grown woman and wants things with Dillon. Jazzy (Dillon's twin) is an obstacle, although not the only one. Can these two find a happy ever after? It seems easy enough. But sometimes things aren't as easy as they seem. Now I liked Dillon, however I didn't in the beginning. He is oblivious which irritated me and he is arrogant, but I got it. I understood even when I didn't want to and I sympathized.. somewhat. But Laurel, Laurel was so easy to love and it was so easy to be in her corner. Of course, in the end I was happy and smiling all the same. Again these books are sweet and easy reads, light and fun. Lacy Laurel is my favorite female narrator, so of course she killed it! She does such a good job with making each character have their own voice. She is so easy to listen to her, I swear she could read the most uninteresting book there is and make it great!

Hotness

The story was definitely "Too Distracting." Once I started, I couldn't put it down. It was HOT. The scenes between the two of them had me fanning myself, and there was enough of a story to draw me in. If you are looking for something to keep your mind off the world at large for a little while, this one will definitely do that. Yum.

Preconceived notions can be your downfall

In Bethany Lopez’s story Too Distracting, Laurel and Dillon have some issues to overcome that took root in their childhood and filtered over to adulthood. They both had preconceived notions about each other requiring them to let go of old hurts from the past so that they could build a future together! Luckily for them that they had family and friends rooting for their success! Lacy Laurel did an okay job with narration. She’s not my favorite and her performance for both male and female characters left more to be desired.

Laurel & Dillion

This has been the best in the series so far . Both main characters were great Laurels parents were on a power trip though. I was glad when Dillion put them in their place.

Great read

Too Distracting: The Lewis Cousins, Book Three was another great read by Bethany Lopez. Dillon is the CEO of Lewis Sporting Goods and doesn't have much spare time on his hands. Laurel has loved Dillion since she was nine years old, but all he ever saw her as was his little sisters best friend. She seeks help from Dillon with her business plan and tries to fight off her attraction to him. I loved reading Laurel and Dillon's story and can't wait to read more by Bethany Lopez.

DNF

Narrator was horrible. First couple of books in series was okay. This book however was bad. I couldn't stand the sound of her voice.
