Book: Lost In Distraction

Author: BJ Harvey

Series: Lost #1



In the three years after a horrible crime claimed her family, Elise Halliwell has been alone, shut off from the world in a self-imposed emotional exile. She goes through the motions, finishes high school and moves across country to start college and begin the next step in her pre-destined life.

But her exile is dramatically cut short by the entrance of a dark haired, blue-eyed, smirking man who shakes her to the core, achieving what everyone else before him has failed to do, he makes her feel again.

As much as he wishes it were different, fate has not brought Braxton James into Elise’s life, or has it. Brax has to keep her safe from people in her life who have ulterior motives and may want to hurt her.

Elise has no idea the threat she faces, and Brax wants to make sure it stays that way. But as Brax struggles with getting close to her, he begins to live a lie. Unable to resist the pull that is Elise’s bright green eyes, infectious giggle, and loving heart, he finds it impossible to stay away, so the double life of being Elise’s boyfriend and keeping her safe begins.

Full of twists and turns, danger and revelations that no-one could predict, you won’t be the only one lost in distraction.

I’m alone.

I’m in a dark room, everything is black around me.


I can hear him, but can’t see him.

I feel myself start to shake as the man with white blonde hair suddenly starts edging closer to me. His face contorts with a cruel smile and I see him holding a silver handgun that he’s pointing straight at my heart. He’s the guy from the black car. I try to scream, but no sound comes out.

“No one is going to save you, Elise. You will be all by yourself. Alone, just how you like it.” The man starts laughing maniacally. Throwing his head back, howling with laughter at my predicament. He is pure evil.


I hear Brax again.

“No, Brax. Don’t come in here!” I yell back at him. I can hear the man’s crazy laughter all around me as he continues to advance on me. I thrash back and forth, trying to move out of the chair, but I can’t. It’s like I’m paralyzed.

I feel myself being shaken.

“Elle!” Brax is still calling me.

“No, Brax, No!” I shout back at him. “It’s not safe!”

“ELISE!” Brax says again.

~About the Author~

BJ Harvey

Having always loved reading, and having been befriended and inspired by some awesome self published authors and book lovers alike, I decided to start writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. It was a conscious decision that started with a song, then the prologue and then catapulted from there. I love music too, like REALLY love music, if there isn’t music playing, something is wrong. Out and Proud Vampire Diaries fan as well.

I’m also a wife, mother, full-time university student and I do contract work for myself from home.
