True

Book: True (New Species #11)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Jeanie has been helping the New Species since she first saw them in the testing facility. She was willing to do anything to rescue all of them but most especially to save 710. After True is rescued he goes to work with the NSO team to rescue his people. He encounters Jeanie who was  technician at his sight that he believes betrayed him and his people. He wants to learn why she hurt him, but when the truth comes out True learns that Jeanie wasn't betraying him but was rather protecting him. Now they must prove that a human mole is setting Jeanie up and that she is innocent of the charges against her. 

Review: I just love True! I mean he's so sweet and tries so hard to be what Jeanie wants or what he thinks she wants. She says she doesn't like seeing the New Species fight so what does he do, he waits until she leaves so she can't see it! :) Perfect! Jeanie is amazing, I mean what she went through and did to protect and save the New Species! I don't know many people who could go through that! This book definitely has a few nail biting moments but its great and has an amazingly perfect ending! 

5 out of 5 stars!

Moon

Book: Moon (New Species #10)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Moon was hit with a tranquilizer dart that shattered his memory and has turned him almost feral. Dr. Joyce Yarder knew Moon as 466 and was his therapist right after he was released from Mercile. They both had an attraction that could have gotten them into trouble so Joy left the facility and Moon behind. Years later when she hears that he is hurt she returns to help, even if that help means getting naked to gain his attention. When Moon comes to and realizes Joy is there he has mixed emotions, but when she leaves again he is not willing to let her go this time!

Review: For me this book was super emotional, but in a good way! Every time Moon would go in and out of consciousness of who he was I would get so sad and just hoped that he would come out of it okay. I also loved the dynamic between Moon and Joy, two people who have strong emotions for each other but because of past hurts had just such a hard time coming together! So when they finally do come together or you at least think they do you can't help but get super excited - until Joy gets a phone call from her boss and has to leave. I literally looked down at my kindle and was like "wahh theres still a ton of pages left" So although it didn't end there I am glad that Laurann Dohner did add in the "extra" drama because it added a lot to the story and really made their coming together perfect!

Shadow

Book: Shadow (New Species #9)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Beauty is a Gift Species who is tired of being overly protected and hidden away from the males around her. When she goes outside for a hint of freedom she is mistaken as an enemy and is pined to the ground by a New Species. Shadow is stunned to realize he has a Gift under him and when he tries to radio for help Beauty freaks out. She just wants to be with someone to talk and hold on to. Will Beauty and Shadow be allowed to form a relationship or will outside forces prevent them from being together? 

Review: This is such a great story with two souls that have been abused and misused moving past their troubles to find love and comfort in another person. This is one of my favorites, not just in this Series but favorite in general. I love both characters - Beauty's strength and determination to move on from her past and grow, Shadow's sweetness and will power to hold strong from his past issues but still be gentle and loving with Beauty. The relationship between them is perfect and shows everyone how no matter how broken in the past you can move on to find that perfect someone! Plus when they signed the mating papers my heart melted with Joy!!!!

5 out of 5 stars!!! (I think I'm gonna have to go reread it again:))

Obsidian

Book: Obsidian (New Species # 8) 
 Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Dr. Allison Baxer is obsessed with saving the New Species 880 who lost his mate and is now in a coma. She knows she can save him even if her idea is unconventional so when the higher up Species deny her idea she takes it into her own hands. She kidnaps him from Homeland sets up her own lab and climbs into his bed. 880 wakes up to find a female laying next to him, teasing his senses but when he realizes she's human he quickly turns his lust into rage. Things change though when he is introduced to the New Species, he wants Alli by his side and will do whatever it takes to keep her. 

Review: I give Alli huge props for going above and beyond her job as a doctor to try and "fix" Obsidian. I think her will and determination is what makes this a great read and kept me interested to find out what would happen to her and if the course of action would actually work to awake Obsidian and if he would be happy to be awake. I did enjoy this book but there was something missing, some zing that made it fall just short of be an amazing story especially compared to some of the others in this series.

4 out of 5 stars. 

Wrath

Book: Wrath (New Species #6) 
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Wrath was subjected to horrific abuse by Mercile and knows he is to dangerous and damaged to be with a female. He volunteers to live outside Homeland and work with the all human male task force. While investigating he detains Lauren and they interrogate her. When another New Species takes the interrogation to far Wrath protects her and becomes her bodyguard and roommate. Can Wrath work past his issues and be the Mate that Lauren needs and wants? 

Review: Where do I find a New Species? I mean a male who will do anything to protect a woman even if its from himself! Amazing! I also love how fresh each book is, I think some series run out of ideas but each story in this series is not only different but so are the characters. I also can't help but be so happy that someone who suffered so much abuse is able to have a happy ending! Laurann Dohner does a great job of writing the story so that it sucks you in and you can actually feel what the characters are going through! I love this series and each book is a great addition to the overall story!

Tiger

Book: Tiger (New Species # 7)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Zandy is having a pretty awful day and the icing on top of it all is almost being killed during a bar fight. When she is saved she thinks her savior is an angel and she is determined to have him. It turns out rather that he is a New Species and is the Chief of Security at her new job. Tiger has always tried to stay away from human females because he doesn't ever want a mate, but every time he see's Tammy his instincts take over and he wants her as his! Will he push Zandy away for will she work her way into his life and his heart? 

Review: Okay, I know this book isn't real but I can't help but get angry at the protestors and when they *Spoiler* grab Zandy and try to burn her at the stake I can't help but be angry. Moving on to the book I was so excited to find out that this book was about Tiger because I have loved him in all the other stories and I have to say this lives up to my expectations from Laurann Dohner. Lots of action, violence and crazy people, great sex scenes and a love between two people that can't but help make you jealous! I love the fight that Tiger tries to put up against having a mate, but in the end he gives in to the love and connection he has with Zandy. Such a great read! Love it!

5 out of 5 stars! 

Brawn

Book: Brawn (New Species # 5)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Brawn is going to work with the Task force and is staying with the leader's human daughter Becca. Both are attracted to each other but Brawn has sworn to never touch a human female, so he must keep his hands off her. Things change though when they are kidnapped and locked in a cage together, good intentions go astray! The two are subjected to breeding experiments and they cling to each other until they are rescued. They part ways never expecting to see each other again, but fate has something else in mind. 

Review: I feel like Becca can not catch a break this whole book! I feel so bad for her she gets kidnapped, undergoes breeding experiments, thinks the man she loves hates her, winds up with a bun in the oven, is forced to go to the New Species home, thinks Brawn has moved on with another woman and has to deal with her crazy dad. What I do love though about her and other heroine's in this series is that they don't cry and are all "woe is me" but rather they fight back and try to save themselves and others. I also love the diversity in the characters and the story lines in each book. I really did love this story and I think that it introduced some great new characters that I hope will get their own books as well!

5 out of 5 stars!

Justice

Book: Justice (New Species #4)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Justice North is the public face of the New Species. His life is busy and crazy and leaves little time for interactions with females. However when he meets Jessie Dupree a human working with NSO to save the Gift's he is willing to make time for her. They know a relationship between them will never work but neither of them is willing to give up their stolen moments. Can they survive the turmoils or will Justice's busy life get in the way?

Review: This book is amazing and very emotional so be prepared to cry! I love Justice and Jessie and when Justice denies Jessie because he wants to protect her and the New Species...My heart broke! But when he claims her in front of all the Species at the party - HOT STUFF!!!! I'm glad that Justice has a mate and that it is someone like Jessie who is so sweet, but when bush comes to shove will do anything and everything to protect the one's she loves! Great addition to the series!

Valiant

Book: Valiant (New Species #3) 
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Valiant is more lion than human and his features prove it. He hates humans, but when he gets a whiff of Tammy a human female he knows he must have her for all time as his mate. Tammy is overwhelmed and she hits Valiant on the head so he can escape, but she does feel a pull to him. Later Tammy is kidnapped by human mercenaries and the only one who can save her is Valiant who still wants her as his own. Will he make it in time so they can have their perfect ending? 

Review: I really loved this book! I mean Valiant is so sweet, this big huge Species who just wants a mate and then on the other hand he's a straight up bada** who can kick major butt and will do anything to protect Tammy. *sigh* The New Species are also hilarious and Laurann did a great job writing what it would actually be like to come from a sterile environment and then have to learn all these different things and how crazy/funny those learning situations would be! I also love not only the dynamic between Tammy and Valiant but how all the characters in the story really add to the plot and you can't help but fall in love with side characters and hope they get their own story/mate in the future! Great read!

5 out of 5 stars!

Slade

Book: Slade (New Species #2)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: When the New Species are saved from Mercile 215 is brought the the human hospital to be saves, while there he pins down Dr. Trisha Norbit and whispers promises of sexual favors in her ear. A year later the two meet again 215 also known as Slade doesn't remember her. Trisha is now interested in the breeding and sexual habits between humans and species for personal interest. What she gets is a dangerous situation that leads to a hands on experiment with Slade. The end result is something the Species never thought they could have and puts Trisha in a very scary spot. 

Review: I love Dr. Trisha and Slade together and they have the best back story on how they first meet! I mean who wouldn't love to be pinned down by a hot male? (I volunteer!!!! Me pick me!) Plus this book has so much action that you are entertained the whole entire time and you are always wanting to know whats going to happen next! It does get a little long but all of the story line is super relevant to the overall story and it is all well written that you don't even care if the book is long! This is a great read and great addition to the series!

4.5 stars out of 5! 

Fury

Book: Fury (New Species #1)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: When Ellie finds out that the company she works for is doing illegal experiments on people she decides to work undercover to stop them. These "experiments" are people that have had DNA spliced with humans and animals and they have been chained up and tested all their lives. Fury and Ellie are caught in a bad situation and Fury believes to be betrayed by Ellie. When they meet again after the New Species are freed Fury vows for vengeance, even when he learns all the good that Ellie had done. Even knowing this he can't stop touching and obsessing over her. Somehow the two have to overcome what the world says if they want to be together. 

Review: This is such a fun series and if you have read Lora Leigh's Breed series and loved it then you will also enjoy this series! I definitely love all the characters and the names that the New Species pick are hilarious and so fitting for them as people. The relationship between Fury and Ellie is so interesting to witness, it starts off super rocky but quickly turns heated and then sweet. I love seeing how protective Fury is over Ellie. I think this is why this series and others about mates are so popular because what women doesn't want a hot sexy man who will always love you and never cheat! This book is also spicy red hot with some steamy steamy love scenes!! My only complaint (and its very minor) is that the was just a smudge too much drama that really took away from the whole plot line so I did have to take away .5 star for :( (I wish I didn't have to because it's so good!!!!) I recommend this series this 2 big thumbs up!

Resisting Temptation

Book: Resisting Temptation (Men of Honor #3)
Author: K.C. Lynn

Summary: Cade Walker is a man with scars, both physical and mental. He's broken and detests God and love. Faith is a woman who has deep faith in God and shows it by traveling on mission work. Cade and Faith meet in Iraq and get to know each other when the unthinkable happens and Faith is kidnapped. Cade is able to save her and they go back to the states. Years later they meet again and this time do they have a chance for love and each other or will their baggage get in the way?

Review: Ahhh!!!! This book is AMAZING!!!! Cade sounds like an amazing man, all gruff and hard a** but then you see this soft and loving side to him. Plus who doesn't love the image of a buff, tatted guy in a freaking beanie! Through out the story you can't help but root for Cade and Faith to overcome their issues and be together. This book is very deep with a lot of dark issues including, child abuse, rape, neglect and murder and is guaranteed to make you cry. I love though how real this story is and how K.C. Lynn handled these issues and made them work for the story and to show others who may be going through these things that there is light at the end of the tunnel and that you don't have to stop your life but that you can overcome the obstacles thrown your way. This is just such a touching story with a lot of x-rated and spicy love scenes thrown in to really make it amazing. K.C. Lynn has to be one of my new favorite authors and I can't wait to see what else she has in store! 

I give this 5 out of 5 stars!

Sweet Temptation

Book: Sweet Temptation (Men of Honor #2) 
Author: K.C. Lynn

Summary: Grace ran away from her past but it still continues to haunt her. Sawyer an ex-seal wants to pull Grace out of her shell and get to know her sexually and emotionally. When her past catches up with her Sawyer will do anything to protect her and prove his love for her. 

Review: I love this story and wish that I could give it 5 stars, but there is a part that I was super upset about and had to dock it down a few stars for. So *Spoilers* when Sawyer has sex with Jenny after really trying to get with Grace and then Grace having to hear them going at it. I was super pissed, then when they "made up" and she pretty much just rolled over and allowed it, ummm hell no!!! My man does something like this its gonna take a lot of groveling to even closely make up for it. Plus it was not needed for the storyline to work, and it definitely not only angered me as a reader but a lot of other readers as well and hurt a really amazing story. Thankfully this all happens at the beginning of the book and so by the end of the story you are able to put it away especially when Sawyer does some amazing and sweet things for Grace. If that whole scene with Jenny was not there this book would definitely have 5 stars because it is Spicy Red Hot!!!

I give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars. 

Fighting Temptation

Book: Fighting Temptation (Men of Honor #1) 
Author: K.C. Lynn

Summary: Jaxson Reid is and will always be a "bad boy" but deep down he's always had a soft spot for Julia Sinclair.

Fast forward five years later and Jaxson is back to fix the mistakes he's made. He will fight not only to protect her but also fight his own personal demons so they can finally be together. 

Review: I love a good bad boy and Jaxson Reid completely fits the bill! This book is steamy hot and will make you laugh, cry and have you rooting for them to be together. For a first time author and first book K.C. Lynn knocked it out of the freaking park with this story. Not only is the story line very well written but it's a story that will suck you in and takes you for a ride! Loved it so much!!!! 

I definitely give this a 5 out of 5 stars!!!!
