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.
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.
Arrogant, sexy, hot-tempered
Slade is an arrogant, sexy, hot-tempered and somewhat shallow male; however, I guess there has to be one in every crowd and I still couldn't help really liking him. Poor Dr. Norbitt.
I think she narrated this book better than the first and think she will only get better and better.
This book was not as good as #1 but still exciting and opens up the gateway to newly introduced characters and plots.
I didn't like that this was a "cliffhanger" but understand the reasoning.
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.

Yes becasue it one of the best PR I have read. fast paced Hot Sensual Sex Scene strong heroine and hero great story!!!
The GhostWalker series by Christine Feehan. This series is about genetically engineered military soldiers that where give animal DNA. GW's is the Older series than New Species but it is better and Is my all time Favorite series!!
The narrator isn't very good with male voices and all her character voices sound the same.
I Laughed and Cried their are some great funny moments and than their is an attempt rape on the heroine which caused me to want to cry. i hate attempted rape scenes as much as I hate rape scenes.
Slade is a great story fasted paced, great characters and hot sex scenes!!
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.
The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Vanessa Chambers makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill a book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job
I like this series. It is not amazing but an overall enjoyable listen. There is action, romance and just enough to keep you hooked for the next book. I really like that there are a few characters in each book that keep coming back. The concept of the book is also good. Slade was a great character and I loved when he called Trisha “Doc”. I don’t want to give away what happens but it is good and will keep this series going in a unique direction. Also in this book the author gives you a little more background into the labs and how they tortured new species. Overall a good listen. I will continue on with the series as I think that there is room for more twists. I also want to find out what happens to Valiant and Trisha.
I'm joining the New Species party a little late but, as they say, better late than never so here's a very short review because it's all been said before.
I didn't like this one as much as book 1 because of Slade's character - he was a bit of a smart-ass and over confident. However, LD has yet again created and richly described a world inhabited by likeable/loveable paranormal creatures whose histories are sad and touching but they are now free….. and they're each finding their mates.
This was action-packed, funny, gripping, very HOT, passion filled, romantic and one or two major surprises.
Worth a credit? A must have addition and I'm off to read book 3 about Valiant.
