Slade at the beggining a bit of a jerk

Slade after the accident

Slade when he lost it

The story used the same narative way as the first book: past - huge thing happening - slow built-up - semi huge thing happening - nice ending..
I was totally fine with it.. The main story helped the background story flourish and it was also pretty funny in many moments..
i enjoyed Brass a lot.. The story was nice and a really good surprise was awaiting us around the middle of the book.
Brutal main event for this one...more
This book is # 2 in Laurann’s new series. Where book # 1 has a more serious feel because it’s setting up the world that the New Species live in. This one has more moments of humor.

Trisha Norbert is an ER doctor. There’s an emergency in her ER. That’s when she meets Slade, who is a New Species. New Species are men made from humans spliced with animal DNA. He is a canine breed, who ends up on Trisha's exam table wounded when he’s rescued from the lab that created him. She can’t forget him and she...more
** 4 1/2 stars **

I really enjoyed this one, I liked it even better than the first one. I am excited to continue this series, the author has set up some interesting characters.
Way too silly at times. I had to DNF this one because I did a lot of eye-rolling while reading it. SUV tumbles down a ravine, hero & heroine are on the run from the bad guys trying to kill them but hey, let's stop and have some sexytimes even though said guys are still looking for us. If that's not bad enough, heroine is captured by bad guys the next day, is almost raped by one of them and hero saves her at the last minute and THEN, after she has a crying fest about the would be rape, she's...more

1. I love 'on the run through Wilderness' books! Really. I do. What?
2. I love the advisory- "there is an attempted rape in this book.". Uh. Duh. It's a Doehner book, but she always saves them from it, which makes us love the Alpha hero more! *sigh*

This was a fun read. This series is quick and snappy.
I'd argue that this is another winner in the series. Were there things about the story that bothered me a bit? Sure. But overall, there is a great story here.

Laurann Dohner has got a great concept. A new species trying to set up in the world rifling with hate-group-hicks just waiting to inject a little bit of suspense into her stories along with the 'we love animal-men' romance that is bound to happen. It's a guaranteed page turner.

I do find the romance side a bit...stiff. I am thinking this mig...more

This book was at the same time better and worse than the first one.

The baddies

1)The sex. Yes this is erotica so it wasn't the sex as a whole that I found disturbing, it was the sex-on-the-dirt-without-nearby-shower that I had a problem with, especially since they were running for their lives through a forest the whole day. I mean sweat, germs, they don't even have water to drink let alone clean up. I mean Eww...
2)The first half of the book was kind of boring. Thank god the book wasn't bigger b...more

I am totally enjoying this series!!!


Doc Trish and Slade are one of my favorite couples in this series. They find themselves in a survival situation in the woods while being hunted by hate group fanatics. There is quite of bit of violence, and lots of action in this book. Oh and the sex is Amazing!!


Trish and Slade are so funny together. They joke and pick on each other and really make me laugh. I enjoy their hummor. Loved this book and look forward to more from this series!
I abso-freakin-loutly LOVED this one! I LOVE SLADE!!! This story was fantastic! I loved it from beginning to end! Could not put it down! Now I'm really looking forward to more from this series! The writing is still not as good as some I've read, but I have to say, the story and characters are crazy good! I am so happy my friend Bianca introduced me to this series! Great find!!!!!!!

After reading the first book and falling in love with Fury, I was a little apprehensive about reading Slade. I didn't think I would enjoy the second story as much as the first, but i was so wrong. I loved the snarky remarks back and forth between Slade and Trisha. Slade tries to play off his attraction to Trisha with overly sexual banter that she throws right back at him. The two of them make the perfect couple and I love how they come together at the end. The bar is set pretty high for the thir...more

Loved this one! Even better than book 1. Really loved the action, sexual tension, and the world - love the world!!
These New Species males are...niiiice! :)
This was a rollercoaster of emotion. It was adventurous and action packed. It made my stomach turn because of an attempted rape scene so beware to those readers who are sensitive to that subject matter.

This story ripped my heart into tiny pieces, because of a misunderstanding between them and that lack of communication that one time created a whole lot of separation angst. This story also made me shout in excitment because the 'so called impossible' became possible. And finally it made me swoon...more
My quest for a good Ellora's Cave offering pt. 5.
One of the most stilted, wooden and illogical romances I've ever come across. There was not a single believable (romantic) emotion and/or act based on it during the first quarter - my point of escape.
The unappealing smart-ass hero falls heavily for his mate while groping her in a drug induced haze and shuns her one year later when he has a chance to actually come to know her because he doesn't recognize her any more (different hair colour!) and is...more

Slade, a rescued and surviving member of New Species, a genetically engineered super breed of human/animal crosses, is head of security for the now independent New Species nation based in Homeland. Slade is strong, confident, and more than capable of taking care of his own, until the arrival of the new human doctor, Trish Norbit. His strong attraction to her is infuriating. Slade is torn between acting on the undeniable sexual attraction for the "doc" and keeping her at arms length. His memory...more
[I LOVE this series! The books are compact, but meaty enough to leave you feeling full. And the characters are so well-drawn that they're each distinct with no chance of mistaken identity. Most importantly, we're assured an HEA which is such a nice break to all the NA angst-ridden, drawn out series so popular right now.]

Hellllo, and Hi Trisha! Just kidding I really loved the humor between these two. Well, and with this second book Trish needed some protection so she had a lot of New S...more
My first foray into the New Species series, and I loved it!

As usual when I'm reading books about genetically engineered animal people trained as soldiers I'm leery that I would be reading one long Dark Angel fanfic (anyone else remember that show?). But like Lora Leigh's Breed series, though things are very similar, the story is different enough that you don't really notice and I don't spend half the book picturing a shirtless Jensen Ackles (not that that's a bad thing, just distracting). I lov...more
I enjoyed this story more than the first book (Fury), and can now say I'm officially hooked to this series. I wasn't expecting much and thought this book would be similiar to the first one. However, they are completely different which was a wonderful surprise. The sex scenes are much better in this one, less descriptive which worked out well. The action scenes are also better. The villains are terribly evil and the New Species world that is being developed is both intriguing and interesting.

Book #2 Slade goes back to the beginning a little where the New Species were freed. After the facility was found and the New Species were take to be protected 415 was badly injured and needed medical attention. 415 was taken to the hospital by helicopter where Trisha worked as a doctor. She heard about the case being brought in and was curious about the man and excited a little to get to work on someone from the facility. Once in the hospital Trisha was thrust aside by a more experienced doctor...more

Misunderstandings keep them apart, but when Trisha’s life is in danger, Slade is the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desires cannot be denied, but the consequences may be even more dangerous and will change their lives forever in this riveting paranormal romance.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot holds readers captive with lots of action, suspense and passion. The story comes to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and...more

I loved this one even more than the first one and I absolutly loved the first one so thats saying something:)
I loved slade and his cocky flirtiness and I loved the way Trisha fucked with Slade just as much as he did her.
This story is so imaginative I love how different it is!
Although there was alot of seriousness in this book it had alot more humor than the first one as well!
Julie C
Really good follow up to Fury. Here we get the heated and sometimes frustrating love story between Slade and Trisha. Not a big fan of the "I'll stay away and ignore you in order to protect you syndrome". (view spoiler). Totally love Brass, he definetely deserves a book of his own.
"Intense, intoxicating, and an outright page turner."

Full review on Sensual Reads

***I decided to reread as I am trying to catch up on series and this is just as good the second time. I forgot Brass was in this one. The parts where Valiant is in it are fantastic and Slade is a handful as he tries to charm Trisha. Love this series.
This was as good as Fury and much better than Valiant.

Fury and Slade redeemed the series for me and I will continue to read the other books as they are released.

My one complaint was Trisha forgave Slade too quickly when she was mad at him, but other than that the book was enjoyable to read.
PepperP0t (
I wasn't captivated by Slade and Doc Trisha's story. I was interested and liked the continuation from Fury but somehow didn't really get invested in their romance. Slade and Trisha originally met the previous year and Slade's outrageous flirtation affected Trisha more than she let on. Now that their paths have crossed again and he doesn't remember her, Trisha is quite miffed. For his part, Slade remembers the memory of Trisha in that a weight change, different hair color and an opportunity to t...more

This is quickly becoming a favourite series of mine. I did read this one out of order because I wasn't able to get a hold of Slade before Valiant. I have to say, I really enjoyed this book. I love the rough kinky sex and how Ms. Dohner writes it.

Slade is the 2nd in command for Justice and he's found his mate. His mate is the cute doctor Trish. The relationship Ms. Dohner creates for these two is hilarious. These characters are different than the other ones I've read so far and this is good. It'...more

Okay I LOVED this book!! I haven't said that in a long time either!! Maybe its due to reading so many lack luster books lately but I really enjoyed this one!! It was witty, sexy and had a great story line.
This book was full of the thong dropping hottness but it also had such lovable and witty characters. The ending line in the book was so cute!! I loved Slade!! He was one hot lollypop! Trisha was very likeable and she didn't piss me off with the whiny scared of my shadow act the last few heroin...more

This is how I feel about this series:

In my opinion, this one wasn't as strong as the first. However, it still sucked me in from the beginning.

What I enjoyed


He's badass. He literally kicks all the bad guys asses. Therefore, I love him.

-The doc. She was pretty awesome. She handled shit pretty well, including some messed up situations.

-The trio protecting the doc. They are hilarious.

What I thought was meh

-Dirty sexy times. Seriously, you're on the run and you haven't eaten, slept or washed...more
