Lana has landed on a planet and is
suddenly not only an “alien” but somehow she is captured,
analyzed, tattooed and is set to be auctioned off as a
“Breeder”. Add to this she is transported “accidentally” to
an unknown area full of frightening creatures, and has to be
rescued. She is stunned by the man (Xander) who comes to
her rescue. He is everything male, and makes her blood
sing. But, does he care for her as more than a brood mare
or is he just interested in her as a breeder as others seem
to be. She is further unsure when she is handed back over
to her captors. She definitely does not expect the outcome
of the auction of herself.
Now suddenly she is thrown into
Xander’s world and it definitely does not seem to come with
a manual on how to do things. There are also a number of
things that are different and she is having a hard time
coping with them, especially when it seems everyone else
around her either resents or hates her, except for Xander.
Now suddenly someone seems to be trying to kill her. Will
she and Xander be able to work together to keep her safe,
and will they both finally find true love?
Ms. Barbour has written what is
classified as an erotic futuristic romance but I would also
like to point out that there are a few suspenseful twists
and turns, and a “whodunit” flavor to this erotic offering.
Pure Distraction is just that, a huge
distraction if you want to get anything else done while
reading it. I found that Ms. Barbour did a great job in not
only setting up this alternate society but also showing both
how it was supposed to work and how it changed. Readers
should note that there are also a few M/M encounters as part
of the storyline. Overall, I found the world Ms. Barbour
created to be intriguing and I hope she hopes to use it in
future adventures. Pure Distraction is a
great summer read, but make sure you have time to sit and
read it all, as you will find you keep going back to it
until you finish it.
