Book 5 in the New Species series. While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from reading them in series order.
One look at Brawn, and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. He’s also instantly attracted to her, but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough for the type of rough sex Brawn enjoys most. When he learns he’ll be living under the same roof with Becca, Brawn simply sees it as a chance to broaden his knowledge of humans. Hopefully he can do so while keeping his hands off her…
His good intentions go astray when they’re both kidnapped and locked together in a cage. Brawn finds himself reliving a nightmare when he’s once again subjected to breeding experiments at the hands of New Species’ enemies—who will use Becca to get what they want. Brawn and Becca will have to depend on each other if they hope to survive.

Even though this series is very much like Lora Leigh’s Breeds, I tend to like it. I like that series so it figures would like this one. Sometimes, I like this series better because it is not as dark. This book was a disappointment in terms of character development of the heroine for me and there was a romantic interference which I really don’t like as a plot element. In this case, it leads to a Big Misunderstanding which I also dislike. I let and understand the heroine but the book would have been better if she had more depth, the hero too really. There was a bit more villain in this book. I prefer relationship development and the characters spending time together. If I could have had more from the heroine besides her widowhood and daughterhood (interests? A job?), this would have pushed the book into three star territory. There is a some angst and drama in the book that is very well done The hero was lovely and the secondary characters very good. Well, the father of the hero is very flat and I want to hit him. There is no reason for him to be that much of an ass. I sure he will get his own book. I will keep reading this series though.(2 / 5)
