My Review:
Laura Dunaway's first book "Distorted" is about a girl, Aly Chase, stuck between two guys, who love her and she has to decide, which one she wants to have a relationship with.  She has the sexy, hot CEO of Pierce Homes that she has worked for three years now, Paul Pierce.  He has had a steady girlfriend for those three years and she has been forced to watch him around his girlfriend.  She knows that Paul has never shown any interest to her until something changes between the two.  She has no idea what to think of it.  All she knows is that Paul has a girlfriend and that girlfriend already suspects that Aly may be a problem.  Aly has helped Paul with several of the projects for his company and she definitely is passionate about her job.  She also has her best friend since college, Ethan, who works at Pierce Homes as well that has feelings for Aly since the minute he saw her at the bar those years ago.
Aly knew that Ethan had feelings for her, but never thought of him in that way until something happens between her and her boss and she has a new view of her best friend.  Ethan has always been there for her through everything.  She just never realized until now she may have always had feelings for him.

Laura Dunaway gives you a love triangle where you fall for both of the guys.  Unfortunately, I lost my interest in Paul due to one incident he put Aly through.  I could not forgive him and neither could Aly.  She was definitely confused between Paul and Ethan and I definitely could not blame her.
I loved both of the guys...but Ethan stole my heart the minute he was introduced.  He had been with her since day one.  He even kept trying to state his feelings for her forever.  Aly was just too hung up on her boss.
Paul definitely had my heart the beginning when he was introduced until his girlfriend gave Aly grief every time she was around.  Poor Aly...I would have decked Paul's girlfriend, Casey.
I loved this book, although there were parts I did not like, but it was due to what Paul did to Aly and how Aly kept having her emotions get to her.  She could not make up her mind between Paul and Ethan.  The whole time...I was rooting for her hook her up with her best friend, Ethan.  Seriously...why would she even consider Paul for what he did to her.  I would have kicked him to the curb a long time ago.

Laura did an amazing job on her first book and I look forward to what she has in store next.  I need to know what happens to a certain character.  Laura definitely made me cry several times and want to throw my iPad across the room, but she did have me crying happy tears as well towards the end.

If you are a fan of contemporary romance and love triangles, you will definitely want to read Laura's debut novel, Distorted.

I give this book 4.5 moons and highly recommend it.  Just be warned...your emotions will be going through a lot in this book and you may love Paul, or Ethan...or maybe even both.  You may even want to slap around Aly sometimes.  (just saying)

I received a complimentary copy of the book for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review.  This review is my own opinion and I was not compensated for it.

“You’re beautiful, you know that?” he asked.

I stopped what I was doing and looked at him. He was just sitting there, casually watching me with the sweetest look on his face. My heart lurched and I was frozen.

His brows drew together. “I mean it,” he said.

I gave him a small smile. “Thank you,” I said quietly as I got his food out of the microwave. I put it on his plate and handed him a beer from the fridge. He smiled at me as he twisted up a mouthful on his fork and dove in.

I leaned on the counter, drinking another glass of wine, and watching him eat. He popped the cap off of his beer and took a long drink. He set the bottle down with a big, “Ahh,” and gave me a silly grin. 

“Ethan, what did I do to deserve you?” I asked, suddenly very serious.

He stopped mid-chew and looked at me. “What brought that on?”

I sighed and set down my wine glass. “I don’t know. I just see you here, with me, being so cute, and I wonder. I mean, you know I’ve been in love with Paul for years, yet you never wavered, you stayed with me. And even now, when we’ve developed more to our relationship and I haven’t been able to give you any promises, you’re still here.”

He set his fork down and shoved off his stool, walking around the bar to come next to me. He grabbed my hips and pulled me to him, wrapping me in his arms. He kissed the top of my head, rubbing my back. “

Aly, you know better than that. I am here to stay, no matter what you decide. If you ultimately decide Paul is the man for you, or anyone else for that matter, I can’t say it won’t kill me, but I’ll always love you. We were friends first and we will be friends last, no matter what.”
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.
