Book 13 in the New Species series. It is advisable to read the books in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

Vanni is furious when her fiancé tricks her into attending a conference where his father's church is protesting the New Species Organization. She hates everything those vile bigots stand for. Vanni goes to the bar to cool off and ends up seated next to a handsome New Species. Things heat up fast when they are both drugged.

Smiley doesn't want to believe the sweet human would dose them with the breeding drug. He's willing to trust her and determined to save her life. He'll hold her. Protect her. Offer up his body to distract them both from the pain. She is his female, even if she doesn't realize it yet.

Perfect

This installment of the series contains everything we have come to expect; trouble from new species haters, a beautiful young women in need of protection, doubt and suspicion from the NSO, action with nail biting- hair pulling moments, and lots of hot sex. What sets this one apart is the main characters. Smiley is different from all the other NS males. His emotions are closer to the surface and he feels more everything This makes him compassionate and a good friend to everyone. Before diving into the story I wondered how Ms. Dohner was going to pull off writing this character as an sexy, possesive alpa male. Well, she did it beautifully and seamlessly, while staying true to the original character the fans have gotten aquainted with over the course of the series. The author also created the perfect match for smiley in the sweet, shy, soft spoken heroine. Loved the way she brought these 2 together. Finally, I am very picky about narrators, and so thankful Vanessa Chambers is still with this series. If you are not reading/listening to this series, then you are missing out. I usually get board with a series, especially when it is the same book over and over. There are so many recurring characters in this book and the story of the NS people progresses with each book. I can't wait for the next insallment...

ANOTHER WINNER

Smiley!!! What a great book! Super funny, full of drama and suspense, and as usual, sexy, sexy, and a little more sexy, which is the New Species way. A new threat arises against the New Species and Smiley is caught right in the middle of it all. If you're into this series, this one won't disappoint!

A Male who Deserves to get his Female!

This one has turned into one of my favorites. Smiley is one male who says "she's the one I want" and spends the storyline proving why he deserves to get her.

Also fun to meet some new chatters and learn a bit more about others who have been there all along.

Laurann did it again, and again, and again

I don't know what I will do. I'm getting to the end of this New Species Series. Because Laurann Dohner is such a wonderful writer, I guess I will have to branch out to some of her other series. The 13th book already. Love this series. Laurann Dohner does a wonderful job of giving us a unique story for each of her New Species books. Vanesa Chambers does a wonderful job of relaying Laurann's characters and bringing them to life. Awesome book, just like all the others.

New Spe-shes

What did you love best about Smiley?

I loved the story itself and all the characters. I was especially happy the author went deeper with the New Species relationships and friendships. Smiley was also a bit different and laid back compared to all the others.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Smiley?

The most memorable moment is without a doubt the jeep/alley scene in the very beginning.

Have you listened to any of Vanessa Chambers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to another book by this narrator before, but this one was good. My only issue (which was really bothersome at times) was the pronounciation of New Species as "New Spe-shes".

Smiley is just Smiley!!!

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

For the New Species Series this is not one of my favorites , but it was still very enjoyable. I tend to like the characters who have larger roles in the other books. Plus I was hoping that smiley was a female.

What did you like best about this story?

I think he was won over way to fast. It appears as if he was taken in by the fact that she gave him a glance. She never had to work to secure his feeling. He was in love from the door. This was unreal to me. In all .....I found the book enjoyable. But I spent a lot of time thinking how things could have been different.

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

Yes, there were parts that made me laugh

Smiley is such a sweetie.

We now get to see how the first primate male bonds with his human. Smiley was such a sweetie to Vannie, there was no way she couldn't fall for him. I enjoyed this book as I have enjoyed all of the book from this series. I hope that LD will write a book for Jericho, I also like both Cindy and Beth for mates for someone. Narrator does a good job as usual.
