In the New Species series a pharmaceutical company has genetically mixed beast DNA and man DNA with sexy results. In Brawn, the fifth book of the series, one of the muscular creations is sent to live with Becca. Her father, the leader of the human task force rescuing and working with the New Species, forbids her from interacting with him. Things heat up, though, when Brawn and Becca are kidnapped by a lab looking to breed more of Brawn’s kind. With sultry and impassioned voice Vanessa Chambers performs this mix of science fiction, action, and sensual romance that will perk the animal instincts of any warm-blooded listener.
Book 5 in the New Species series.
One look at Brawn, and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. He’s also instantly attracted to her, but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough for the type of rough sex Brawn enjoys most. When he learns he’ll be living under the same roof with Becca, Brawn simply sees it as a chance to broaden his knowledge of humans. Hopefully he can do so while keeping his hands off her.…
His good intentions go astray when they’re both kidnapped and locked together in a cage. Brawn finds himself reliving a nightmare when he’s once again subjected to breeding experiments at the hands of New Species’ enemies - who will use Becca to get what they want. Brawn and Becca will have to depend on each other if they hope to survive.
Listener Advisory: While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from reading them in series order.

The love in the end
For some reason my favorite character in this book is Tim lol he is crazy. I enjoyed this book just like all the others. NEED MORE!!
I love this series the romance is great and it is "Them against the world" , But....This book frustrated me because it was focused to long on them not being together and arguing the same issue over and over and over again... Then finally in the last 2 chapters did they fall in love.... All the other books from this series I loved...
Crazy for audiobooks!!
I appreciated the characterization for Brawn and for Becca. There is a pattern with Laurann's book, each of the main characters assume how the other feels, rather than talking it out, sharing their individual thoughts and it can be quite irritating. I'd like to see less of that in her story lines for the New Species. I think LD was trying to make that attempt in this book. It still kept my interest and I do NOT regret buying it and listening to it. So, there is a predictability in LD's writing style. But, I'm still eager to listen to the remaining books in this series.
She does show diversity in the various series she's created and I find it's nice to move to the Cyborg series and then back to the New Species, just so that predictability can be broken up a bit.
The narrator for this series is superb! The story line wasn't as strongly developed as others in the series has been, but there is action, suspense, intrigue and of course as a book listed in Ellory's Cove, there's Passion.
It's worth the credit.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
I haven't read the print version. I enjoy listening to audio versions.
His plowing down Slade and Tiger when they tried to stop him from seeing Becca.
Her narration was great, as evidenced in previous installments.
If I could have, I would have.
The only criticism I have for this book, which prevented me from giving it 5 stars is at times, Becca's character was very annoying. Talk about how opposites attract....Sometimes, non-communication and assumptions can be heartbreaking.
Once again Laurann Dohner captured my mind and heart and skilfully bound me to the bitter-sweet story until the end and, as I witnessed the cruelty the numbered captives have had to endure at the hands of barbarians and all done for greed, I was blown away. But thankfully the members of the New Species are now fighting back.
Brawn and Becca are captured and they become unwilling participants of the breeding experiments which go a little too well. Packed full of drama, suspense, surprises, romance, sex, and passion this listen will hook you in as the couple struggle, through conflict, betrayal and heartache, to find their HEA ending.
Worth a credit? LD manages to write her New Species men as sexy, caring, loyal, protective, loving, yet very vulnerable purring, Alpha men - so who can resist them? Certainly not me and that's why it was another credit well spent.
