Distraction by Angela McPherson
We read a wide range of genres between those of us on the book review team. Today’s offering is one of our affiliate publishers, Untold Press, books, a NA romance from Angela McPherson.
Aside from the normal changes in her life, college junior Elle Richards can always count on her friendship with Tristan. The longing for him to love her back is something she keeps well hidden, even from herself. No matter how many miles apart they are, regular phone calls and texts keep them close…until the day everything changes.
Wide Receiver Tristan Daniels has a good thing going. Much to his, and every single woman’s surprise, he’s in a committed relationship. The possibility of going pro looks more than promising…until his spur of the moment transfer to a rival college is approved. Now, Tristan will be forced to be in the presence of the woman he’s secretly loved for as long as he can remember. Elle.
Being away from one another was enough to keep Tristan and Elle distracted, but angst, confusion, and troubled secrets launch them into a breathless, heart pumping story you won’t want to miss!

*I received my copy as an ARC in exchange for my honest review*
Distraction isn’t my normal type of read, but I went into it with an open mind. Tristan and Elle are best friends and go to different colleges, but when Tristan receives the opportunity to play football at the same college, he accepts. Through the course of the book, we see the same events through both Tristan’s and Elle’s eyes. Unbeknownst to them, both secretly had a thing for each other, and we get to experience their budding romance through the course of the book through a series of twists and turns to rival a roller coaster. New adult angst is the heart of this story, and McPherson portrays it well.
Although I did like the story and did get used to the author’s style, it was hard to get used to the back and forth point of views at first. Once I was used to it, I followed along easier. I found myself rooting not only for Tristan on the football field but on the field of love, also. I enjoyed the author’s easy writing style and recommend this book to all who enjoy a good NA romance.
