Audible Editor Reviews

The third "New Species" erotic romance by best-selling author Laurann Dohner features plot twists, golden cat-eyes, and enough passion to leave characters and listeners all breathing hard.

Vanessa Chambers gives a reading by turns steamy, suspenseful, and oh-so sexy. Tight plotting and believable characters mesh in a story of love and danger, as a woman finds herself hunted by a predator who, despite being part beast, fulfills her very human desires. He will also devote himself fully to her protection even as enemies of them both threaten.

Publisher's Summary

Tammy has always tried to be prepared for any calamity life might send her way but she never imagined a sexy, lion man-beast in her future. He’s huge, got the most exotic, golden cat-eyes she’s ever seen, and she’s so terrified she’s speechless for the first time in her life. He’s stalking closer, growling at her, and she’s too terrified to even flee.

Valiant hates humans. But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he starts rethinking. Her fear scents of pure, sweet temptation and the closer he gets, the more appealing she becomes. Once he’s got his hands on her, he isn’t about to let her go. One thought will change his life. MINE!

Before Tammy can regain her senses, she’s flat on her back in Valiant’s bed. Now he just has to use every inch of his big, buff body to convince her that she should stay with him forever.

    "Sooo good! MINE!!!"

    I really like the New Species series... however not all the books are on the same level...

    Book 1 was great, but book 2 fell short to me. This one was awesome! I actually think this one was a bit better than book 1. Only slightly. I love the whole possessive alpha male thing...

    I love they way this book started... with Valiant and others in a showdown of dominance because the human invaded his territory.. Then he grabs her up and makes her his!!! It was awesome. The whole book was pretty darn good.

    Great Credit, Buy or Sale.

    "I'm a little addicted to this series right now :)"

    Valiant Valiant Valiant!!! I LOVE him, and I totally loved this book! I'm so hooked on this series right now it's all I'm listening to. I laughed so many times throughout this book it was as though it was a romantic comedy. Valiant's reasoning and his passion for Tammy made this one of my favorites of 2013 for sure. Although I'd consider it within the paranormal genre its just different enough to offer you a change of pace if you're into paranormal romance novels. The narration is really good, and was one of the things I loved the most with this particular book, the voice characterization for Valiant just tickled me to pieces, especially with the lines he had--I was in stitches! Beyond the humor, this series is very endearing and you will LOVE all the characters guaranteed. So far I've not been disappointed greatly and have already moved on to book 4--JUSTICE--he seems to be a delicious piece of work, so I can't wait!

    "Valliant and Tammy's Love"
    Any additional comments?

    Valiant is one of the New Species living in the Wild Zone of the Reservation. He has more animal features to look at than a lot of the new species and is Human/Lion mix. Tammy works for a catering company and is on the NSO (New Species Organization) site known as the Reserve for a catering job. Tammy walks by mistake into Valiant's yard a mistake leaving her in terror and fear when the huge man-beast starts to growl and threaten her. He hates humans and will do anything to protect his home, that is until he takes a sniff of Tammy and immediately claims her as his. After a lot of tense moments we realize Valian down't intend to kill or harm her but he does intent to mount her and have sex....

    I thoroughly enjoyed how Tammy shows just how strong and perfect she is for Valiant. She proves she is capable of taking care of herself and others! Valiant is another sizzling Hot and Sexy action packed book by Laurann and was perfectly narrated by Vanessa Chambers........

    "I love the series......but"

    I have the same complaint as the cyborg series. I have listened to the first 3 books in the series and its following the same pattern, even all the way down to the short human females (again). Don't get me wrong the series is still good, great plot line, funny characters. I just need more variety. The first 3 books are very similar..... New species huge dangerous male falls for a tiny little fragile human female, the female is captured / attacked by fanatic hate groups and the NSO goes a retrieve the female mates, the end. I think I might die of shock if there was a tall human woman in the series, or mixed breeding or a new point of view of the plot line. I am going to continue with the series, they are entertaining, I hope some new stuff comes along in the series....if not I will be disappointed. I don't want to hear the same story 9 times in a row.

    "Book series continues to be a good listen"
    What about Vanessa Chambers’s performance did you like?

    Vanessa's narration style is a good fit with the story theme and she has a good range of voice styles.

    "Love the story but Narrator ruined it for me"
    Where does Valiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I give the story/book a 5 rating. i love the story of Valiant and Tammy. I give the narrator a 2 rating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Valiant?

    Toward the end when Tammy is in the cage with 927 and they are rescued by Valiant and Justice. Tammy tries to help 927 by comparing her first school day to his first time being free.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the narrator did not have any range in her voice. It sounded like she was holding her nose when she was trying to distinguish the different characters. She failed big time with different voices. she made them sound real dorky.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Laurann Dohner's books and to me when I read them the different New Species are very masculine and proud. The narrator ruined the audible book for me. I think a man narrator would be better for the New Species audible books.

    "Why the "valley girl" narrator???"
    What did you like best about Valiant? What did you like least?

    great character


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

    yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The ONLY reason I took the time to write a review is because I can't stand the narrator. WHY does she have to sound like an air-headed valley girl??? even when she's doing some of the male voices! There is nothing more annoying to me!!

    "Beware very explicit content/Good Storyline"
    Would you try another book from Laurann Dohner and/or Vanessa Chambers?

    Vanessa was an excellent narrator. The storyline was good


    If you’ve listened to books by Laurann Dohner before, how does this one compare?

    1st book


    Which character – as performed by Vanessa Chambers – was your favorite?

    Valiant


    Could you see Valiant being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Chris Hemsworth /Jennifer Anniston


    Any additional comments?

    The storyline was excellent, I being a Thundercat's cartoon junkie and loved the Beauty & The Beast series when it was on really enjoyed the audiobook. However I had no idea the language was as explicit as it was. I had to make a mad dash for the speakers during a love scene. Once due to my daughter playing in the next room and once because I was listening to it on the job while I worked. Steamy is what I would list this story. Yes I would get another book however would hide it like it was a playboy magazine.
