This "New Species" erotic romance by best-selling author Laurann Dohner features Trisha Norbit, a self-assured, smart-beyond-her-years doctor. Aroused to the brink by a patient whose life she saves, she changes the entire course of her life as a victim of her own lust only to survive life-on-the-run as the object of love for a wayward pharmaceutical company’s experiment that resulted in someone mostly man, but part animal as well. Vanessa Chambers, by turns stern, humorous, and passionate, narrates a tale of yearning for the "forbidden fruit" that once ignited is almost impossible to contain.
Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver - but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland... he doesn’t even remember her!
The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she’s not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he’s haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He's blown it - she’ll never give him a chance now.
But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.
Reader Advisory: There is a scene of an attempted rape.

Ok so I swoooooooned over Fury (book 1), but, Slade just made me 'swoo'---the story was decent, but, I found it lacking a little in terms of depth or drama considering how many action packed and full of endearing moments the first book had. Slade had its highs and lows throughout, but, by the end it just ended abruptly, which was a bummer. The best parts of this story was the quick wit of the characters--there were moments where I laughed out loud, and the great sex scenes---HOT. I'm still a fan, because this is a good series and I'm curious about how the New Species world will continue to develop.
I've already downloaded book 3, and judging by the brief introduction of Valiant in book 2, I'm SO ready to listen.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
Slade's insecurities made the book more appealing.
The male voices, except for Tiger's, were a great improvement from the first book.
I'm definitely hooked on the series once finishing this book.
Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
This is a very addictive series for me. I've listened to the first seven stories back to back, and honestly do not have anything negative to say except I love some of the New Species characters more than others. I am so made at myself for waiting so long to listen to these stories..... they are awesome!
I know Slade may not be others favorite characters but he is one of mine especially later in the series, but I don't want to give anything away just in case someone has just started this series. However, the sex scene with Slade and Trisha in the forest, OMG it was off the charts, loved it!
I am a die hard fan of PNR that are slightly on the edgy side, so this series is a must for me.
Need better narrator. Sorry but the narrator made Slade sound like a lame jerk. I've read this book before and love the story. I know Slade acts like a jerk sometimes but the way the narrator read his parts made him sound like that all the time, even during the sex scenes!
I love the New Species world and this second story open the possibility of hope to the species people... and the continuation of the stories for hopefully a long time.
I would say no but since she is the narrator to the next books in this series I guess I have no choice.
No, I could only take the disappointment of hearing Slade in that tone for a little at a time.
I would like this book re-narrated. I would even purchase it again because I love these stories so much and want them in my library. I have actually listened to books 3 & 4 with this same narrator and she did a much better job with portraying Valiant and Justices voices.
I like his sarcasm.
Slade and Trisha together.
She is great with the females but not good with male voices.
One of my favorites in the series.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Book 1 was really good... but book 2 was kind of boring... I skipped like 6 chapters and followed right along, like I didn't miss nothing.. The couple's chemistry was still just eh!
If you plan to invest into the entire series, I would get this b/c more info about the New Species are revealed...but each book is a stand-alone... so this could be skipped... I gave up on the series though...
So... Credit or Sale… not worth the buy...
Narration was ok… I liked Narration from book one better...
Slade was an idiot, why would a woman fall in love with him? I couldn't believe a smart DOCTOR would find him interesting, let alone fall in love with him. This book had me rolling my eyes but it's better than Lora Leigh terrible books.
Love love these books...I have to say Moon Is my favorite character...love his sense of humor.
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
Loved the way Laurann continues the series of the "New Species". With each book you learn more about the characters and she spoon feeds us new ones. Ones to build future stories on. The story is not just about the fabulous sex they have, there is actually a very interesting and suspenseful story included. Slade is everything a woman is looking for in a man except he thinks too much. Trisha is the perfect, petite, smart (doctor) woman. The narrator does a great job of distinguishing each character. Laurann does a great job of bringing you into the story and keeping you on the edge of your seat in some of the scenes. Again, loved this second book. Starting on #3. I especially think Laurann or the pubisher is very smart to give you a preview of the next book at the end. It hooked me. As soon as I finished, I bought the next one. Thanks
"Another great book"
Another great read/listen in this series looking forward to the rest. Didn't think I would like theses books but I'm so surprised.
"Glad I bought it"
He'd tie for first place with Die for Me and The Fault in Our Stars.
How funny Slade was, he is so sweet and possible and annoyingly endearing.
The voices, oh my gosh the voicesvoices. She made them so real and different from each other, and practically made me fall in love with every single New Species I met.
I'm buying myself at least three for Christmas! At least...
