I have never read any of Kizzie Darker's books so I had no idea what to expect in her writing. The storyline content was good, but I found the flow of that content choppy. I felt like it was incomplete in certain areas and was jumping around. I am sure others would disagree with me, but since I haven't read her books before to know what her style is like, it stood out. I will read another of Kizzies books to find out if it was just that book.
Distraction and Desire is written purely from the POV of Joanna, who is absolutely devastated at the start from the break up of her relationship. She is struggling to deal with the bereft feelings and cuts herself off from family and friends. Her brother though is persistent and together they set off to Paris. It is here that she meets the enigmatic businessman Nathan Jones. The attraction between them is instant and intense but everything is not as it seems as Nathan reveals his secrets to her. These have the potential of destroying their fragile, fledgling relationship.
Nathan is a CIA agent as well as a successful businessman and is on the trail of a Mafia boss. His attraction to Joanna is deep, pure and intense. Whilst he is strong and certain, when it comes to Joanna he is protective and a little bit needy. He sees Joanna as his salvation from his past.
One thing is certain in this story: trust no-one. There are lots of twists and turns along the way as Nathan tries to bring down the Mafia boss and protect Joanna from harm. Whilst the story has a tendency to jump around, it is still a good read and with the cliffhanger at the end I will definitely be following up with the next in the series. It is a really promising start to a new series.
On starting to read though I did find the main female character - Joanna Woods - a little naive and perhaps annoying; I really wanted to like her but I couldn't.
I couldn't feel any chemistry in the relationship between Joanna & Nathan until around 80% into the book although I would loved to have done so sooner as even though he has secrets, Nathan is hot and a charmer.
The storyline itself seemed rushed and at places felt like there was parts missing; with the nature of the story I would have liked there to have been more drama. Nevertheless, Kizzie did a good job of keeping big secrets hidden until they were revealed and I did gasp a couple of times.
This story ends on a cliffhanger so though I don't feel it was 100% for me at this time, I do want to read the next installment to discover more about the mysterious Nathan Jones!
Woah!! Where do i start?! Firstly, if you're not a fan of fast paced action, this might not be for you. But, for me, i really enjoyed it. Because of the quickness of it, it meant that every page you turned, you were hit by another 'OMG' moment! The twists and turns in this story, had me, at some points, on the edge of my seat.
Nathan Jones... Oh, Nathan Jones! He's the main male character, and does he pack a punch. At first, i really didn't like him, and he had me rolling my eyes a few times. You know, though, that he holds many secrets, maybe not has powerful as you later find out. There were also moments that he did things that i really, really didn't enjoy. One moment in particular, (which i won't say as to not spoil)made me so angry, and i wanted to scream at Joanna for letting him do that, and then brush it off the next day as if it didn't matter. No way would i let THAT happen, nor would he be in my life anymore, but hey, this is fiction so those things can happen and be forgotten about. But, later in the story, i seemed to warm to him, and he was such a sweetheart when he was just with Joanna.
The description in this book was amazing, and very well written. When i read, i always have my own description of people and places in my head, but i actually could see everything play out in-front of me this time. That was different to me, and i liked that.
Like i said previously, this is FAST PACED, and yes, maybe i felt at really small points i was missing some information, but i would never let that take away from an enjoyable read. Oh, and the ending!! OMG, i will be downloading the second to find out what happens with that cliffhanger.
