REVIEW: The Perfect Distraction (Perfect #1) by Melissa Rolka


When Katherine “Kate” leaves for her freshmen year at college, a grounded and stable piece of her is missing. She pushes away the ghosts of her past, determined to start her college life single, carefree and distracted.

Throughout high school Kate was reserved and shy, with little experience. Now, on her own, with little holding her back, Kate is ready to branch out. She bonds with a tight knit group of friends and even starts casually dating. What starts out as innocent flirting on the tennis courts slowly turns into a friendship and eventually something more complex. Reed comes into her life giving her the distraction she craves more than anything; but is she ready to give her heart away so easily?

Things get complicated when Kate’s ex-boyfriend and first love continues to pursue her. Kyle deeply regrets breaking her heart when he left for college the year before and is now on a mission to reclaim her. Kyle’s persistence and relentlessness is nothing short of obsessive. He will stop at nothing to win her back and prove his love.

Kate finds herself torn between her past and the unknown of the future. Her determination to stay distracted may just be her downfall or the beginning of something new and wonderful.

My Thoughts

The Perfect Distraction certainly distracted me during the course of reading it! It was absolutely AMAZING!

I loved Kate! She was introverted and had an innocent vibe, but she wasn't totally naive. Although she lacked some self confidence, I enjoyed her journey as she grew and learned to assert herself.

Her diverse group of friends were also extremely lovable. It was great how they all cared for on another and rallied together when they needed too.

And Reed Harper? OMG! SWOON! He was almost too perfect! I felt like I was constantly looking into those intense blue eyes whenever Kate was. I liked how he acted towards Kate as their friendship slowly began turning into something more. He was so patient and considerate of her!

I was captivated with Melissa Rolka's writing. It easily held my attention for the duration of the book. Her characters were very well developed, and again, very lovable. They were easy to relate to.

If you feel like being distracted for a little while, The Perfect Distraction by Melissa Rolka is definitely the book to get distracted in! I can't wait for the next book in the series to find out what happens next for Kate and Reed!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
