    15. Previously reviewed on The Good, The Bad, The Unread A behind the scenes novella about what Olivia was doing while Violet and Liam were falling for each other I actually prefer this story to the novel it accompanies, even though the conflict over whether Olivia s humble background makes her an unsuitable wife for Malcolm feels rather glossed over On the other hand, I love Malcolm s uncompromising loyalty towards Liam and the way their friendship survives in spite of Liam s bad behaviour in the a [...]

    18. Short and goodI gave this a 4 star instead of a 5, because it did not have an epilogue about the two characters, which I felt was needed It finished too abruptly Left me with wanting to know how they ended up.I loved Malcon Graham and Olivias short story Their story intertwined with Violet and Liam s story It felt very real This author is very descriptive and I love that about her passionate love scenes Her character development is amazing.Looking forward to starting her new series.

    19. Beautiful Distraction is just that A nice distraction for an afternoon It is a novella that would not stand as well on its own it is however a very nice follow up companion to Beauty and the Earl filling in the side story there I had hoped that this book would reveal of these two characters and their own story, but mostly it just fills in the scenes we already glimpsed While I did wish for out of this story and it did not have the heat of the other books, it was still an enjoyable read.

    20.

    21. Short erotic romance I enjoyed it, but I had just finished the previous book, Beauty and the Earl, which detailed Violet and Liam s relationship The two stories happen simultaneously I think if I had read this first I might not have enjoyed it as much It moves very quickly, being a novella So go read Beauty and the Earl first Actually start with Taken by the Duke, since you learn about Liam and Ava and the feud This is an EROTIC romance Lots of steamy sex scenes

    23. The Pleasure Wars book novella 4 is a fun and emotional fast read This is the story of Olivia Cranfield and Malcolm Graham from book 3 Beauty and the Earl They come from different worlds and different stations in life but neither can deny their attraction to each other Deceit brought them together but can they weather the fallout This is not a stand alone story or series I highly recommend you start with book 1 Taken by the Duke.

    24. Another great book by Jess Michaels A short, but really good book I am now on pins and needles waiting on Beauty and the Earl Ok, I don t know how I missed that Beauty and the Earl is out, but this is the last book in the series Beautiful Distraction I have bought Beauty and the Earl and will be putting a review up for that one very soon.

    25. Loved this book as I have loved all her others I have read Jess Michaels hooks you from the beginning paragraph until the last sentence of each book The only draw back I have, is that I can t put the books down until I have read them in their entirety.

    26. Olivia is Violet s friend from the previous book and their stories are intertwined This is Olivia and Malcolm s story of meeting, falling into lust and love while Violet and Liam were in the midst of their own story.

    27. It was good to see the other side to this story since Beauty and the Earl left questions about Violet and Malcolm and how they got back together It was short and sweet.

    28. Nice novella Does a good job of filling in a few loose ends in the series Pleasant, straight forward characters.

    29. A quick novella that covers the romance between Olivia and Malcolm I enjoyed it but a bit repetitive after just having read beauty and the Earl.
