What a great listen! In a similar vein of FSOG, Bared to you, etc. etc. this book was delicious. It's a quick listen so things get straight to the point. I would be remiss not to immediately mention that two seconds in when the male narrator Shane East began speaking I knew this was going to be a scorcher! Grace Grant is good too, but I can't wait to get to book 2 when it's all Shane. I already am intrigued by the characters, especially Ethan---yummy! This seems to be the beginning of a dramatic romance, and I am HOOKED. I listened to this practically in one sitting. As it was coming to the end as I prepared to leave for work, I was almost late leaving because I HAD to immediately buy books 2 & pre-order 3 so my listening wouldn't be interrupted!
Calling all paranormal romance lovers!!! This is a great new series featuring a brand new type of 'paranormal'. New Species are humans spliced with animals...could be cat, dog, who knows, but whatever the species, it made for a really good listen. There were some moments where the story dragged or was a little redundant--literally over-focusing on certain points way too long but once it got back on track and moved forward, things progressed well. The characters were sexy, fierce, and funny as they found their way to love and navigated their new environment amidst dire circumstances, such as trying to have uninterrupted sex! Trust me, that's one of the funniest, and somewhat frustrating points of the whole book, but it doesn't take away from the fact that I loved it!
The narrator is a new one for me, and she was good, she has a great voice although there were times where it seemed like the narration was very very slow...perhaps this was deliberate but given what she was saying and the context of the story it seemed like she was trying to add drama where it wasn't really necessary. All of the less than positive aspects of this book pale in comparison to the positive attributes so, I'm already going to purchase and download the other books, as I am now a FURY fan and New Species obsessed!
If it's not obvious from my other posts regarding the New Species series, I'm a HUGE fan! I've enjoyed each book, but, there's something about WRATH that tickled my fancy in just the right way! Each book has the same basic concept more or less, but, this one stands out to me because Wrath was so incredibly loveable and I just melted as he and Lauren's relationship developed. I'm also really looking forward to Shadow's book--I think its book 8 or 9--and yes, I've pre-ordered them all! As has been the norm in the Species books there was a healthy dose of humor and hotness, and these books can't be released fast enough for me. I'm totally consumed and loving every minute!
