Book 2 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver—but hospital staff interv

Slade is book two in Laurann Dohner’s New Species series. If the first book hadn’t convinced me just how kick ass this series is, this second installment would have done it. DAMN!

Dr. Trish Norbitt and Slade meet when Slade is first rescued from Mercile Industries. She is one of the doctors on call when he is brought into the hospital. The sexy encounter leaves them both reeling and sta

Slade snorted. “Women.” “Men.” “Smartass.” “Dumbass.”

When I read a shifter book I expect a fated soul mate kind of love. That bam! your are mine and I knew it the minute we met kinda thing. The I am never going to let you go thing . I got that kind of love in the first book with Fury and was looking forward to some more in this book, but what I got was Slade!

Slade at the beginning of the story:

Slade after the accident:

Slade when he lost it:

I had an amazing time with this hot, adventurous and decidedly entertaining story. Slade began as a cocky, sexy deviant but that changed after the accident mostly because he had to protect Trisha!

Trisha was a great heroine, very put-together and absolutely in love with Slade.

The story used the same narrative style as the first one: past-huge thing happening-slow built-up,-semi huge thing happening-great ending.

As I mentioned in my review of the 1st book in the series , I was a bit apprehensive continuing reading the next book. Fury reminded me a lot of Lora Leigh's Breed Series, but I decided to read the next story and I was, despite the similarities, quite impressed.

I did enjoy Slade's story more than Fury.

Not what I expected… It wasn't bad but wasn't amazing either. The first half of the book was so boring that I almost DNF'd. Slade and Trisha kept running away and hiding from the bad guys who came to hunt them down in the woods. They were in the woods half the book! And there was almost no story here! Slade had repeatedly ticked me off when he kept giving her hot and cold treatment. I don't understand what was wrong with him that he kept calling her Doc.

Slade, the second book in the New Species series, features Dr Trisha Norbit and Slade, an NSO officer. They meet at the hospital, right after the New Species are freed from Mercile industries. An intimate meeting experienced like no other, stays with the two long after their separation. Seeking a way to learn more on New Species, Trisha applies and accepts a job at Homeland, where New Species currently live. With the memory of

Comparing this book to the first one is like comparing carob to chocolate. Sure, carob looks and smells like chocolate, but it doesn't taste even half as good.

That is a cruel trick, mom!

The New Species world is really cool. We have these science experiment people who are half animal/half human trying to simply exist. They aren't trying to mess with the humans, interact with them much, take their jobs, or hurt anyone. They have their own compounds to live in even. So, what's the problem?

Another ridiculous installment, but I loved every page!

Some of the amazingly ridiculous things that should have made me hate this, but instead I ate right up:

~Our two main characters are in life or death survival situations, but they can't seem to do anything but bang.
~The good old tropey "I nearly just got raped but want you to touch me now"
~Lots of growling
~Lots of "mine"-ing
~Plenty of miscommuncation
~And a surprise! (view spoiler)

3 Stars! In my humble opinion, not as good as the first!

I'm in the minority, I didn't care for this one as much as the first book in the series, where everyone seems to be of the opposite opinion. Slade got on my nerves, his sense of humor rubbed me the wrong way and it got old. I felt like I was watching a bad comedy routine. It didn't care for the first half of the book, and I came close to setting it aside, but the second half was much better, and eventually Slade won me over.

Another reread. I forgot how annoying Slade is. He's kind of an asshole really.
Dec 15, 2015 rated it it was ok


He gave it to me, alright, but I was nowhere near impressed.

To start off, this is the second installment of New Species where it has showcased Slade and the nosy Doctor "Doc" Trisha Norbit.

Their first encounter was a sizzle and it got me REALLY excited, however as I continued on, my excitement and focus wavered.

So did I like their story?

I am a big fan of teasing and Slade was a big tease. But I HATED IT! I detested him. He was crude and a jackass.

RATING: 1.5-2 Just Meh Hearts.

Well, the rating kind of speaks for itself. I really enjoyed the first one in this series, and for all the right reasons too. Slade, in comparison, did not gain any brownie points from me. I'll make this simple, since this entire series is a guilty-pleasure venture for me.

What I Liked:

1) Dr. Trisha Norbit. It seems the women in this series are just plain old awesome, and full of snark and backbone . No clueless, dumb, or naive women in here, and lets just say, tha

Well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad to quote Meat Loaf.

This "New Species" book did not do it for me at all, and it's all due to the hero.

Apparently, since being released from wherever, Slade has been reading Harlequin Presents on the sly as he is channeling Greek/Spanish/Italian/Sicilian tycoon behavior with slut-shaming, abandoning her after ONS, running after ONS, martyrdom, protecting the heroine by hurting the heroine, assuming the h is a slut on the basis of such meaningful actions like

4 stars!

I love the world Laurann Dohner has created! but most of all, I love those sexy-possessive New Species males.
Slade was an ass at the beginning but he made up for it later.
What can I say? I like these guys. Oh! And I'm so happy they can have offspring *-*
I would recommend this series to all paranormal romance readers.
Looking forward to read about Valiant & Justice!

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!

Slade, Slade... deep sigh
"Are you still interested in learning something about the breeding process between our two species?"
The worst line he could find to make a pass at Trisha.
But he is so cute and funny. Especially, when he was promising one thing to himself and in the end he was doing the exact opposite.
The forest scene was pretty hot.
My second favourite NS after Fury.

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

Ok, so I guess I got pretty lucky with the last few books I've read. And I'm so glad about that! Although well... I am kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Anyway, this book was pretty nice. I liked the characters and I'm glad I got to see a bit what happened with the "New Species" once it escaped the lab. Again, I'd have loved a bit more plot, a bit more world-builder, but it was pretty nice. True, not as nice as the previous one, but still, it was good.

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

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.

Loved this one! Even better than book 1. Really loved the action, sexual tension, and the world - love the world!!
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

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

First up, I hate Slade. He is an asshole. An ass. An asshole. Oh did I say it already?

So he had to do what he thinks is best for Trisha. Men, he didn't even consider before deciding it.

But I love Brass, Moon and Harley. I just love them. They're cute and adorable and makes me laugh. That's kind of not really the way they should be describe. But I love their jokes and banter with Trisha.

So, I like Slade towards the end but not that much with Brass is concern. And ex
Re-Read March 2015 Rated 3 Stars. Not as good as the first but still enjoyed

Originally Read November 2011 - Rated 4 Stars

Another good edition to the series although I still can't keep comparing it and finding uncomfortable similarities with another author's works!

I liked all the characters and liked the banter between them. I am so looking forward to reading Brass' and Justice's stories.

I was annoyed with a number of character/plot points, including the fact that Trisha actually seems to bond and spend more time with another New Species, Brass, instead of the hero of this book. The hero was a jerk.

I may try one more, perhaps Valiant.
