Dirty Distractions

Sexual attraction and a seemingly large age gap are the primary themes of this story. She’s in her 40’s. He’s in his late 20’s and her best friend’s younger brother. She’s living in their house. What to do?

Sara has her PhD in zoology and works at a bird sanctuary. While her apartment is undergoing renovations, she’s staying with her best friend, Kim and her younger brother, Brad. She’s friends with Brad but she also fantasizes about him. Too bad he’s not older because she’s not risking her friendships with Kim and Brad for sex. Brad just got out of a quickie marriage and he finds himself attracted to Sara. It doesn’t matter that she’s older. Can he convince her to give him a try? Or, are there too many things stacked against him?

While there are some issues between this couple, very little discussion of them occurs as they explore their sexual desires. So, expect lots of bedroom scenes, a few fantasies and a bit of dialog. And, though this story does not have a lot of depth, it does have fun, interesting characters and enough story so you’re not going from one sex scene to the next without something happening. I also would warn against reading this story at work, crowded area or other places that you wouldn’t want to get hot and bothered in because the sex is hot and you will get bothered!


Book Blurb for Dirty Distractions

She wants a fling, and he wants forever…

Zoologist Sara Carmichael’s active social life is the envy of all her friends, but she has a secret. She’s bored senseless. If she has to go to one more bird sanctuary fundraiser with some guy who thinks his little sports car makes him “hip”, she'll scream.

Enter Brad O’Halloran, her best friend Kim’s much younger brother. A guy who’s picking up the pieces after a quickie marriage and even quicker divorce. A guy so hot he makes her body scream with frustration.

Until Sara’s apartment is renovated, they’re all living at Kim’s place. Despite her determination not to salivate at glimpses of Brad’s finer-than-fine body in nothing but a low-slung towel, flirtation escalates to the brink of something more.

Now one of them has to back down…or ante up for some good, dirty fun with the unspoken understanding that when the time comes, they’ll make a clean break. Neither anticipated they’d make the most complicated connection of all—love.

Warning: This book contains a hero who knows how to make engines— and women—purr, seduction while on cold meds, and a heroine who might be a little older but still enjoys learning a few naughty new tricks.
