Distorted Review + Giveaway


Author: Laura Dunaway 
Genre: New Adult
Event organized by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Aly Chase has worked for Paul Pierce for years, loving him from afar. He is handsome, rich, and the powerful CEO of Pierce Homes. Just when Aly has decided her love for him is futile and vows to move on, Paul begins to give Aly the attention she had always desired, forcing her to feel confused by his actions.

Then there's Aly’s best friend, Ethan Baker. He's sweet, handsome and charming. He is also in love with her. He's accepted that Aly and he will only be friends, until one day Aly realizes that her feelings towards Ethan are way more.

Aly is caught in between the man she’s loved for so long and the man that has always been there for her. As her feelings are pulled and tugged in both directions, she must make a choice before her distorted life loses both of them.

I rated Distored 5 leaves!! Distorted was an emotional, roller coaster read. I rode through angst, pain, and felt the obsession that Aly had for both Paul and Ethan. The characters sucked me in and kept me in a constant state of angst! I was going crazy right alongside all three of them. So many twists and turns. I am thankful I've never been in love with two people, but that doesn't mean I don't love to read a good love triangle. Right from the start I was on a "team," rooting for 'him' throughout the whole story. 
Aly and Paul, Aly and Ethan.... 

Ethan is great to Aly. He has been in love with Aly from the beginning of their friendship. He loved her and treated her well.  

"I'll always be with you, as long as you let me. I will never love anyone else, Aly. It's always been you." -Ethan 

Don’t see the problem? Well, Paul cares for her too, and Aly loves him. Paul has been her boss for three years, and she has been secretly in love with him. Furthermore, Paul is taken by a bitch of a girlfriend. After Paul and Aly go on a business trip, feelings start to surface between the two.  
"Please give me the chance to love you, to be yours. Please give us a chance." -Paul  

I was wondering how Aly was going to be able to choose between Ethan and Paul. I couldn't relate to the decisions that she made, so therefore, I felt like a friend watching my BFF be a complete hot mess! The choice was pretty simple for her when ‘the other guy makes an unforgivable mistake. I thought Aly's final decision seemed rushed and incomplete. I didn't get all the closure I wanted in the end, but that's life! We do get a preview of the next book, and I totally fist pumped when I read it! 
How do you pick between those two? Do I recommend this book? Yes, without a doubt! It is worth the read. Distorted is the total package, steamy and heart-wrenching. Your emotions will be all over the place, but that is what makes a book so great!


Laura Dunaway has been married to her prince for 17 years and together they are raising three amazing kids. While she's always had a passion for reading and writing, it wasn't until this past year that she finally realized she should pursue her dream of writing a book. After many many attempts at starting one, Distorted was finally the one that flowed and before she knew it, she'd written The End. When she's not busy shuttling her kids to lessons and practices and making dinner, she's busy behind her computer writing her next book.
