Narrated with sensual slyness by Vanessa Chambers, Justice: New Species, Book 4 is the continued tale a genetically modified man who becomes leader of a new species; half human, half animal. A side-effect to this modification is that the man is now also the hottest hunk in the world. This man is Justice. And our protagonist, Jessie Dupree, can’t wait to get her hands all over him.
A steamy and erotic story that should be listen to for the sexy details, rather than perhaps the plot.
Justice North is the face of New Species. Seeing him up close makes Jessie’s heart race. He’s the ultimate alpha male - big, muscular, exotically beautiful… and dangerous. Of course he’s off limits. But then the sexy man purrs and all bets are off. Jessie Dupree is a mouthy, fiery human female who brings out the animal in Justice. She wants to show him how to relax, and he’s all for anything she wants to do, but Justice has sworn to protect his people and to take a Species mate.
He’s torn between the woman he wants and the oath he’s taken. Jessie knows a relationship between them probably won’t end well; heartbreak is inevitable. But that won’t stop her from freeing the wildness inside Justice and spending every moment she can steal wrapped around his hot body, making him roar with passion.

I've wanted to hear Justice's story since I began this series and I was not disappointed one bit!!!! This sexy story was further enhanced by his romantic interest--Jessie--I LOVED her! I've gushed about all the preceding stories, and my adoration of this series continues. Justice's story is less of a "nailbiter" than the other one's so it was a nice change. It still has action, but, it focused more on him coming to terms with his public persona versus being a man in love. I adored every moment, definitely a credit worthy series.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
His loyalty towards his people, even at cost to himself.
The Bar Squabbles/Fights between Justice and Jessie.
Vanessa Chambers does an excellent job with the character voices. Her narration has improved a great deal since the first book.
Most definitely! It kept my attention, which is hard to do, lol.
I'm looking forward to the next installment "Brawn". He only had a small role in this book, but he peaked my interest.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book started so boring... I can't believe I kept at it. I don't think the book really picked up until Jessie got fired from her job, and Justice moved her to Homeland (NS compound), to a home right next to him. This was somewhere around chapter 10ish...
Jessie was bad to the bone... Such a perfect female for Justice... Although... I was pretty pissed at Justice throughout the book because he kept Jessie a secret from everyone. Once Jessie realized why she had to be kept a secret...then she kicked some NS butt near the end... it closed out the this couple story nicely.
A lot of great moments all throughout the story, but not a constant listen like Book 1 or 3. It seems like every other book is the greatness pattern with these books.
Narration was spot on... Chambers has narrated all the book but the first one. She maintains the same voices throughout all the books, so right away if you are following along... you recognize who's who, just by the voices... Pretty good job!
This is a great credit, good buy if you plan to invest in all the books in this series... and well worthy sale (although this series just came to Audible so it might be a while before that happens.)
Say something about yourself!
This is the fourth book in the New Species Series and I have to say I adore this series! This book wasn't as great as book one, but it's still pretty darn good! All of these characters are so detailed that you actually feel like they are people you know, VERY good writing.
I was a BIT disappointed that Justice was okay hiding Jessie, I mean I sort of understood, but I wasn't happy about it. On the bright side, it was a totally new story line. I was beginning to feel a bit cheated with the similar story lines, but this one was good.
Great for credit or sale and narrator is excellent!
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
This is my first time with a shifter type series and I have to say I have enjoyed all the New Species books, it has a solid plot, good characters, and the narration performance is great too. All the things that pulls a good book into an enjoyable audio book. They do keep you coming back for more. Romance plus action with some steam in between. Give them a try you may be very pleasantly surprised.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good story. I loved Jessie, she's really great. Justice is a pretty good guy and I was happy to see him find happiness. I'm really loving this series and can't wait to read more of it.
Jessie is smart and feisty woman. She's the daughter of a Senator and works as a liaison that helps the New Species (NS) women when they're rescued from captivity. She hasn't met Justice previously, but one night when she's at the Reservation (one of the NS compounds) they meet and feel a connection. They come together but only get a few hours together before they both get pulled away by work.
Justice is the leader of the NSO. He doesn't relish the responsibility but everyone keeps insisting the NS would be lost without him and no one else can do his job. He never gets a break and spends all his time working for his people. When he meets Jessie, he feels a strong attraction and wants her but knows that his life would cause too many issue for them to be together. Regardless of this, he can't stop thinking about her.
Right after Jessie and Justice come together the first time, Jessie ends up hurt while retrieving a rescued NS female. Her father (the Senator and also the person who gave her the job) fired her because of the danger. Justice can't stand the thought of not seeing her again and offers her a job in Homeland (the main NS compound). He also moves her in to a house right next to him and doesn't do a very good job of staying on his side of the wall between their yards. Jessie doesn't mind though since she's very attracted to Justice and decides she's willing to try for something more serious with Justice when he shows a serious interest. She agrees to keep their relationship secret at first because he sees many reasons why their relationship could cause problems.
Jessie and Justice are happy together for a short while but there's only so far their relationship can go when they can only be in one at her place. She isn't even allowed to visit his house because people might wonder why her scent is there (NS has awesome sense of smell). Jessie ends up realizing that Justice will never allow their relationship public and still holds plans for his future that can't include her. She ends the relationship with Justice but he doesn't take it well and it's very painful for both of them. This is made worse by Justice not accepting her breakup even though nothing has changed, he wont take their relationship public and she's not willing to be a dirty little secret in a relationship that has an expiration date. Eventually things come to a head when Justice is pushed in to a jealous scene and finally claims Jessie. There's some addition issues to get through when they find resistance to their relationship from an unexpected source but they get through it (partially because Jessie is a bad@ss) and get a nice HEA.
I really liked this story. I have to admit to a bit of annoyance when Justice was being an idiot about their relationship but I was so happy once he and Jessie got together. Jessie is great and I loved her. She's the perfect mate for Justice and am glad they got together. I'm looking forward to reading more of the NS stories. I'd recommend this book. Thumbs up! :D
This is the bes book in the series so far. I loved Justice's control and authority. But I loved him even more when he was with Jessie. Their story was more drawn out. Jessie knowing he's overworked and needs a break and Justice's conflict when it came to his commitment to is people and his love and fear for Jessie. Their bedroom scenes were HOT!!!
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
Love this one. Justice, being the head of the "New Species", is not only a great leader, but a very intelligent, sex, beautiful man (my imagination). Jessie is a tough little spit fire. She can protect herself, as well as any of those big men she works with. Being the fourth book, you would think that the author wouldn't be able to develop a different personality for another "New Species" character that is unique, but she has. The narrator does an excellent job of distinguishing between the characters. Loved this book. Again, Laurann, or the publisher, who decided to give us a preview of the next book with an entire chapter, knows how to sell books. I was planning on reading another author's book, but after hearing the first chapter of "Justice", I bought it and started it immediately. Now I have moved on to Brawn. Thx
#TakeMeAway ~ Love to be swept away by a great story and narrator!
Justice was, is, and will always be my favorite character in this series, and I absolutely loved his story! It was a refreshing plot change from having a lead female character who always needed to be saved to a Jessie, a tough kickass female who was a perfect fit for Justice. (Dang, is it wrong to be jealous of a character in a story?)
Justice is the face of New Species, he looks out for his people, he's caring and can be dominate. I loved the scene at the party, when Jessie is trying to leave because she is tired of hiding their relationship from everyone. Justice, in a show of dominance, calls out to her over the music and crowd and demands she come and stand right in front of him. Jessie does not want to make a bigger scene timidly walks up to Justice and stands right in the spot he is pointing at. Then while she is standing there and everyone watching, he announces to everyone she is his mate. :-) Did I say he was my favorite character?
This series is in my top 5 favorite PNR's..............*sigh*
I've read the collection so far I hope Laurannre writes lots more I found myself wanting to know how each male species found the women that made them feel protective and the fact cheating was not possible once mated. I got to feel I was concerned for their wellbeing which is the sign that the characters are well written.
