Justice North is the face of New Species. Seeing him up close makes Jessie's heart race. He's the ultimate alpha male-big, muscular, exotically beautiful...and dangerous. Of course he's off limits. But then the sexy man purrs and all bets are off.

Jessie Dupree is a mouthy, fiery human female who brings out the animal in Justice. She wants to show him how to relax, and he's

I am becoming totally addicted to this series!!!

Justice is the 4th book in this series and met Justice in the previous books, I was so looking forward to his story and WOW…I just LOVED IT!!!
Justice North, breathtakingly gorgeous photo justicene_zpsdc0cbdd7.jpg and leader of the NSO (New Species Organization), is totally committed to keeping his people safe and will do anything for them even if it means him having to sacrifice his own happiness, which has made him feel very lonely and seeing some of his people finding their o

"You wanted to see the real me." His chin lifted and his arms open. "Here I am, baby."

Oh yeah! ;)


This time it is the leader of the new species to get a taste of the forbidden.


Justice is book four in Laurann Dohner's New Species series. While I still have a soft spot for Valiant (the previous hero in the last book), Justice definitely won me over with his honorable sense of responsibility to his people and his sexy commanding ways. Yum!

For the sake of this review, I am going to replace Justice's name with the word Dickhead, because that is what his name should have been. He is a giant douchecanoe and I want to punch him in the dick.

*prepare for the rage*

This is the worst book in this series so far. The others have been ridiculous and yet lovable. They should have made me ragequit, and yet I thoroughly enjoyed them. This one made me want to throw my e-reader at the wall.

From the previous books, we already knew that Dickhead w

Re-read because Justice is So Damn Fine!!!


This was my favorite book of the series so far. I couldn't wait to get to Justice's book since meeting him in Fury's book. Justice is the leader of the New Species and he places their needs above his own. He is a nonstop workaholic professional that was elected leader by his people for his strength and inteligence. He is not only strong, but he is the "face" of New Species in front of the media. Justice has decided that it would be inappropriate for him

**Spoiler alert!

The first half of the book was great. I lost myself in the story, enjoyed every page, and wanted to know more about Justice and Jessie. Both of them were adorable and their chemistry was flammable. I started to have some hope that this one would be my winner.

But then everything began to go downhill in the second half. Jessie start

Ruh roh, I'm going against all of my friends' reviews here, but I didn't think this book was that bad. Yes, I was angry a few times and wanted Jessie to move away from Justice because he was being a hypocrite, BUT...

*ducks for cover* I kind of understood why Justice thought he couldn't be with Jessie. He has proved himself to be a guy who thinks of every angle before he makes a move. He understood the huge ramifications that their relationship could have with both the New Species and the humans
Oh how I love to reread these books from time to time.

I realize that a lot of people have an issue with Justice. And while I may not agree with everything he did, my heart truly went out to him. Here is a guy who is trying with all his might to make a better way of life for his people. He is sacrificing his own happiness for that of his people. He works too hard and too much. Not only that, he has to wear a mask to hide who he truly is. It breaks my heart. He only wants someone to love who will

Oh Justice, you're it for me! Justice North is the man, in every sense and i can't do anything else but love him! He was a bit dickhead at points but i forgive him solely because my girl Jessie did too.

We all know he is the face of the N.S.O. and we all understand the pressure he must feel everyday, but a fiery, badass, redhead is here to change everything, once and for all.

Justice is under constant evaluation and scrutinized by humans and Species for everything that he does. Jessie on the othe

This is a NONVIOLENCE hate campaign, only hate words, where it targets and focuses to Justice North, leader of New Species then followed by his mate, Jessie.

This campaign was created because of the poor portrayal of the said couple in their book having displayed UNPARALLELED IDIOCY

Hello, worst cover ever. You've got luscious abs and arms going on, but you had to ruin it with that pose. It looks like he's squatting to use the bathroom in a towel/kilt/toga/sheet. It's horrible. Or he's doing those weird lunge stretches you see guys sometimes doing, you know, the ones that have no idea what exercise is, but they pretend by doing awkward stretching lunges. Pff. It's just all wrong. But the horrible cover fits with the horrible male mc inside.

This book by far is the BEST in this series. I love Justice's story. And Jessie is the perfect yin to his yang.

When it comes to the scope, the main characters, the secondary characters and dialogue, this story is completely on point. It blows the 1st 3 books out of the water on this front.

The emotion present in this one is intense and it just jumps off the pages. I love the chemistry between Justice and Jessie. Across the board, it is just white hot. As I said this one was intense with the emoti

4.5 Stars! A Righteous Read!

I was looking forward to reading/listening to Justice's book from the moment I met him in Fury. You always wonder if a book will live up to your expectations, especially when you love a character as much as I love this one. My worrying was for naught, the author did right by Justice!

Vanessa Chambers is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators!

Meet Justice North, the leader of New Species Organization (NSO)

This man knows how to push my buttons. He growled, he roared..and HE PURRED

Justice is a workaholic, considering he's the leader of the new species, he's like a president in our world. The welfare of all his people were on his shoulders and he felt as the leader he had to set examples, including on who he chose to be his mate. He were set that he had to take a new species to be his mate. We

Continuing this series I forget how much I love it. Justice is a character who I never really put much thought into if I am being honest. So when this was book 4 I was like Meh but it’s so good.

You don’t think his job would be as hard as it is, he never shows how much work it is to his people. But Jessie when she comes into his life she sees what others don’t see. She sees that he can’t be himself. He has to be the face of New Species.

I loved Justice but gotta say was not a huge fan of Jesse I just found her a bit too demanding but she wasn't as annoying as other female leads so I put up with her!

RATING: 1-1.5 "Whatever" Hearts

Well, Laurann Dohner seems to have a trend going on with this series, in that it goes up and down. I was exciting to read Justice's book, and I think given my rating, it is safe to say, Justice was a HUGE let down. When you have so much hype built on one character in a series, it creates certain expectations, and living up to those expectations is just part of the package deal. And that is what this fails in, regrettably.

Admittedly, this book starts off rather int

Justice es el cuarto libro de la saga New Species creada por la autora Laurann Dohner y narra la historia de Justice y Jessie.

Justice es un personaje que me agrada mucho pero reconozco que su historia no era de las que mas me llamaba la atencion, quizas por eso esta cuarta parte me desiluciono un poco.

Su relacion no me gusto tanto como la de las parejas anteriores, se me hizo un poco pesada y muy repetitiva, era volver a lo mismo una y otra vez, ademas no ayudo que la protagonista femenina no me

I love this book and I love that Jessie doesn't put up with crap from Justice even if he thinks he is doing the right thing. I liked this book more this time around! I love Justice but his push and pull with this book always irks me,but Jessie ad her actions and not backing down are always my favorite part of this book. Well besides when Justice finally snaps, I love that.

I really kinda liked this one! Mostly because of Justice...i've liked Justice since he was first introduced in book 1...he's soooo sweet and i think he found a worthy "mate" in Jessie..she was a tough heroine, which i liked! This one had a lot of angsty back and forth inner "battles" between the two of them...mostly on Justice's part...which can drive people nutty...but i like it...adds to the drama! LOL! ;)

Loved it!! Justice is wonderful, he's got black panther DNA, he's a strong leader, hot, and he finally finds his mate. And Jessie is a badass, really liked how they worked together as a couple.
This book made me warm up a little more to the New Species Series. Admittedly, I did start with bk #7; then I went back and started at square one.

I know each of these stories will be about a Species finding his or her mate while adjusting to their sovereign homeland and to outside threats against their kind. However, Justice being the figurehead of the New Species is THAT character, the one who you just want to have a great story. His position of being a generally accepted and not quite human p

Original review November 10, 2013

I think Justice is the sexist man alive and Jessie is the best female character written in a paranormal romance book. He is the leader is his people New Species and has taken on the responsibility of gaining their independence and being the face they show the public. That is a lot of pressure from New Species and Humans so when he falls for a human female Jessie. He is torn between his heart and his duty. I loved this st

I enjoyed this one! Maybe not as much as the others, but I really liked seeing the progression of the world - as in some of the NS flipping out and coming after Justice. I wish there hadn't been so many references to Jessie being small, but oh well. And I LOVED how feral she became when he was hurt. That was a great scene!

Rewritten review on 11th May 2015. First review written was awful.

So it was hard for me to decide if I liked this book or not. There were alot of things that bothered me. I was really looking forward to Justice getting a book but the whole uproar that he wanted to take a New Species but still wanted Jessie. 3 "you are a damm sod" stars.

Jesse is a kick ass heroine and she was part of the reason that I liked this book more than I wanted to.What bothered me though is that Jesse wanted to speak to
