As the successful and driven CEO of Lewis Sporting Goods, Dillon rarely has time to eat a home cooked meal, let alone put any time or effort into maintaining an actual relationship. He's been living on fumes and casual encounters for so long that finding love and starting a family never even crossed his mind, until his cousins Gabe and Reardon found women who gave them both.

Laurel has been in love with Dillon since she was nine years old. Unfortunately, he's always seen her as his little sister's pesky best friend. She can't stop her heart from beating frantically whenever he's near, but she's become an expert at keeping her feelings from everyone, especially Dillon. Her secret has been safe, until now...

When Laurel needs help with her business plan, her best friend urges her to seek help from Dillon. Determined to push her feelings aside and focus on her fledgling business, Laurel knows she needs to do whatever it takes to succeed, even if it means being treated to indifference and big brother teasing from the man she loves.

Can Laurel work with Dillon and still keep her heart intact, or will things get Too Distracting when Dillon realizes what a beautiful, kind, and generous woman she has become?

Too Distracting is the third in an all-new small-town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins as they learn about love and loss in Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business.

Ever since my love of romance books started I've had Bethany Lopez on my authors to check out list.  Everyone seems to love her books! So when Too Distracting, the third addition to the Lewis Cousins series, ended up on my radar, I knew I had to read it, especially after seeing the phrase "small-town romance" in the summery - those are two of my favorite things right there! 

The Result? Sweet as well as charming, Too Distracting once again proves that there's so much to love about an enemies to lovers romance. 

Too Distracting is told in the alternating perspectives of Laurel and Dillon. One of the traits I enjoyed the most about them was how hardworking and determined they were - Laurel with her joint party planning and flower business and Dillon with his line of sporting good stores. It was always fun to see what troubles - funny as sell as serious - that both careers presented, and I also loved the development that came from them, especially in regards to Laurel and Dillon's romance. 

As a heroine, Laurel was very easy to like. She was sweet and smart, and more importantly, her journey wasn't perfect or carefree- far from it actually. When the book opens up, Laurel's re-starting her life after a tumultuous, toxic relationship - one that left her with literally nothing. Worse yet, neither one of her parents support her moving home as well as the new direction in which she wants to take the family business. Anyone in Laurel's position would crumble under the pressure, tension, and mounting negative forces working against; however, Laurel isn't like that. Instead, she takes everything with grace and dignity, and I truly admired that about her. Additionally, it's what made her journey from the first page till the last so heartwarming to witness. 

On the other hand, Dillon has his life relatively put together - he has a strong relationship with his family and friends, a business he loves, and two rambunctious dogs to come home too. The only thing missing? Someone to share it all with. Dillon was sweet and charming - the perfect hero. He treated Laurel with such an amount of respect and love, especially towards the end. 

The plot in this mostly involved Dillon and Laurel's budding romance as well as as Laurel's new business. The romance was equal parts sweet and hot. I especially enjoyed how it took a while to set up - it wasn't insta-love in any regards. Also, the first part of the book where Dillon was so afraid of Laurel setting a trap/prank had me laughing out loud. As added above, Laurel's business also added an interesting component to the story. Sometimes things did work out a little too perfectly regarding it, but this is supposed to be a HEA romance so I can't hold too much against it can I? 

Regardless, Too Distracting is a sweet romance read, perfect for fans of Melanie Moreland or Jill Shalvis! I look forward to reading more by Bethany.
