Editorial Reviews

In the New Species series a pharmaceutical company has genetically mixed beast DNA and man DNA with sexy results. In Brawn, the fifth book of the series, one of the muscular creations is sent to live with Becca. Her father, the leader of the human task force rescuing and working with the New Species, forbids her from interacting with him. Things heat up, though, when Brawn and Becca are kidnapped by a lab looking to breed more of Brawn’s kind. With sultry and impassioned voice Vanessa Chambers performs this mix of science fiction, action, and sensual romance that will perk the animal instincts of any warm-blooded listener.

Publisher's Summary

Book 5 in the New Species series.

One look at Brawn, and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. He’s also instantly attracted to her, but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough for the type of rough sex Brawn enjoys most. When he learns he’ll be living under the same roof with Becca, Brawn simply sees it as a chance to broaden his knowledge of humans. Hopefully he can do so while keeping his hands off her.…

His good intentions go astray when they’re both kidnapped and locked together in a cage. Brawn finds himself reliving a nightmare when he’s once again subjected to breeding experiments at the hands of New Species’ enemies - who will use Becca to get what they want. Brawn and Becca will have to depend on each other if they hope to survive.

Listener Advisory: While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from reading them in series order.

Fantastic

This book started rough and scary just to turn into an emotional cluster fuck of the best kind.

Good but it is repetitive.

This book is a case of believing the wrong lies and lack of communication. Another good addition to the series. Although the heroine was a little insane with all of her insecurities and misconceptions it was a little draining to me, I felt for Brawn. Also Trisha drove me nuts with all her know-it-all opinions. I enjoy the world building and look forward to listening to more books, luckily they are all a Whispersync audio so they were affordable. I also think it is genius of the author to allow the first chapter of the next book on all the books in the series, it wets the appetite for the next book. The narrator does a good job, easy to listen to.

Very well written book.

Eight times...my gosh

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

Good voices

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I kept wondering how the author was going to pull this off without going too dark, she did a great job.

Any additional comments?

This series is dominating my life right now. My house is so clean, my yard work all caught up. Never folded clothes as fast as I did while the two characters were in a cage. You know you've got it bad for a book when you look for things to do to listen to it.

Caged Heat

This was a good story in the New Species series. I really did not enjoy the fact that both a Brawn and Becca were captured by Mercile and held in cages. I also got tired of hearing Becca push Brawn away. Just got a bit too repetitive. Overall though it was a good story and great narration.

Lovely Fantasies Come True

Real life problems are shed to light in these books and I love to see how they are resolved. Nothing like real love, sexy men and hot sex to get your mind off troubles and focused on bringing your fantasy to life with the one you love....I'd love to see Brawn dance!

sexiest character award

Brawn is one of my favorite characters. But then who can resist a tall, exceptionally buff gorgeous man with midnight blue eyes and black hair to his ass? And let's not forget those canines..... and those special kitty skills.... YUM!!!!
