Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Good, not great--but I'm still a fan!"

    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.

    Slade's personality


    What did you like best about this story?

    Slade's insecurities made the book more appealing.

    Story
    "Great story but read poorly"
    If you could sum up Slade in three words, what would they be?

    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!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Chambers’s performances?

    I would say no but since she is the narrator to the next books in this series I guess I have no choice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I could only take the disappointment of hearing Slade in that tone for a little at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    I love the New Species series. I was very happy when I saw they were coming to Audible. I just wish they had used a better narrator. She's okay on the female characters, but not so much on the male ones.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "3.5 Stars Slow start But Picks up"

    I ave listened to many of LD's books including the Cyborg series. I listened to Fury and thought I had to listen this book. It was a bit of a shock to discover there are book 13 books in a series which had somehow eluded me, it was recommended that they be read in order so I'm slowly working my way through them.
    'Fury' was interesting and intriguing and I wasn't surprised that this was such a long series since the possibilities seem endless.
    I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with this book, no, let me correct that I was disappointed with the first half of this book, for me personally they spent far too long in the woods but the second half was wonderful, I love every new character that gets introduced and can't wait to get to their books. Slade annoyed the hell out of me at times but of course I grew to love him by the end.
    I'd rate the first half of this book 2 stars and the second half 5 so I'm settling on 3.5 and now I'm on to Valiant.

    I felt that Vanessa Chambers did a pretty good job with the delivery of the story but not nearly as good as Mindy Kennedy in the Cyborg series.

    "Book 2 not so hot!"

    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...

    "Laurann does it again"

    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

    Where does Slade rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    He'd tie for first place with Die for Me and The Fault in Our Stars.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How funny Slade was, he is so sweet and possible and annoyingly endearing.


    What does Vanessa Chambers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm buying myself at least three for Christmas! At least...
