Kizzie Darker did a really good job at describing the emotions and thoughts that were going through
Joanne's heads. I could see how she was battling upset and depression and how she was working through things. That being said, I also found Joanne was far from my favorite character. Her thoughts tended to be annoying to me a lot of the time, and then she seemed to run a lot. It bothered me.
I also felt that the whole CIA thing almost felt like it wasn't real. Honestly I thought it was fake for most of the book even when Nathan admitted it. I'm not sure it was just how it was introduced or whatnot but I just felt like he was just faking being a CIA agent for most of the book. Until one scene that really drove it home for me.
Distraction and Desire was a good book in other aspects, while others I really didn't like.
