It’s hard to make friends with the other women at the Icehome camp when you’d rather be dissecting the local fauna. Which is why I’m surprised when one of the big, brawny islanders asks me to help him make a prosthetic leg. I don’t know N’dek, but since I’m a scientist, he wants my help. And while I’m more into dinosaurs than anatomy, I love a challenge!
As we work together, I come to see that N’dek’s not just clever and determined, he’s also protective and sweet. And he kisses like a fiend!
He’s a distraction I don’t need… but he might be everything I’ve ever wanted. Too bad he says he’s going to resonate to someone else…
It has been awhile since I wrote a review to a book for this world. I haven’t had many words to say in last four books, so I just wrote mini reviews to Goodreads.
Devi’s Distraction is a story about an alien asking for human girls help. They enjoy each other’s company but unfortunately he thinks he’s going to resonate with someone else, despite being jealous about another man showing interest in Devi.
N’dek is tired of being useless hunter and always needing everyone else’s help in little things.I love how clueless he is.
Devi misses the academic community. She loves the ice planet even if not the people as much as the environment but no one there understands her. She finds everything about the planet so fascinating but everyone else just finds her weird with her need to study dead things. Devi didn’t feel like an outsider only because she was the only academic in the planet but also because she was the only Indian girl there.
Devi never treats N’dek like he’s a problem that needs solving or helpless. He isn’t a thingy to be coddled and pitied. Devi treats him as her equal instead of being afraid to hurt his feelings. I could relate to Devi since she’s lonely and a girl whose always friend-zoned, so I was so glad that she got her happy ending.
All in all amazing read. I enjoyed reading this one so much more than the sixth book of the series which I only gave two stars. Devi’s Distraction was such a great story about two friends falling in love in an alien planet.
