Distraction: The great intensity, novelty, or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention.

Sven is a man who takes pride in his ability to separate himself from his emotions. He's a man who knows who he is and where he’s going in life, a man who needs no one, because needing someone, anyone, is a weakness.

His past taught him love isn’t enough.  

Maggie wants the happily ever after, but has never picked the right men, or stuck around long enough, to build a forever. It’s always been easier to get out early, before emotions make things messy.
When Maggie wakes up naked in Sven’s bed, with no memory of the night before, these two must be honest about their feelings and face their fears, so they can build a future together.

Will love be enough for them to get their happy ending together, or will a threat from outside strike them down before they ever have a chance?

3.5 Stars

This is a suspenseful novel.  The novel starts with seven year old Sven. Sven is doing everything he can to avoid his mother, it seems.  It is apparent that Sven's father, makes excuses for mom's behavior, although we don't know exactly what is happening.  Later that evening Sven walks in on a horrific scene between his mother and father.  Fast forward twenty years and Sven is a successful alpha.  (Is there any other kind?) Sven owns a nightclub where recently a rash of women have been drugged and violated.  Enter Maggie, whose sister is one of the women who has been drugged.  The problem is Maggie's sister is a drug addict.  Maggie goes to Sven's club to try and track down the person who hurt her sister.  Maggie appears at the club everyday and creates quite a following with Sven's workers.  Sven offers her a job.  They try to get to the bottom of things together.  

This book was a good solid read.  The plot was strong.  The characters were developed and had tons of chemistry.  I enjoyed the fire in Maggie and it was good to read about a woman who could hold her own and loved her body.  I struggled in moments with the timeline.  I caught myself rereading several passages trying to figure out if I missed something. This didn't take away from the story too much.  However, I wanted to know a little more backstory in certain areas or a little more detail between time jumps.  Perhaps, the author just left a little too much for me to fill in, sometimes I need to be spoon fed the details.  One issue I did have with Maggie, is it seemed that once she was hired to work for Sven, she lost sight of trying to solve the problem of who hurt her sister.  She still dealt with her sister but, she seemed to focus less and less on what was a driving force in the beginning.   Make no mistake, I will likely read the next book in this series and perhaps then I will have the blanks filled in.
