|Dr. Allison Baker will do anything to save the new species male, 880 or Obsidian, who lies in a comatose state. Nothing seems to be work to awaken him. She has one last idea that just has to work. In order to but her plan in motion, she will break rules and put herself in danger but it doesn't matter. She will tempt him with her feminine scent and her tender touch night after night while he lies comatose.
When Obsidian wakes to the human female, he is furious with her and he vows to make her pay no matter what she has done for him. What he didn't count on was his feelings changing or his possessive desire towards Alli, pledging that no one will take her from him.
Author Laurann Dohner once again sets the pages on fire with another exciting and enthralling story in the New Species series. This series is one that tempts the reader with its marvelously drawn characters, dangerous and thrilling escapades and so much passion, sensuality and sexual tension to the story that it keeps moving at an exciting and relentless pace. There is a richness and flavor to Alli and Obsidian who are well drawn, intriguing and commanding characters who not only must deal with the complication of hate but also the differences of right and wrong and finally the ability to love absolutely to find happiness against the odds. Obsidian was fiercer and darker than any of Ms. Dohner's previous New Species heroes and that wasn't necessarily a bad thing due to the fact the author takes the time to enlighten the reader to the harsh and cruel life that Obsidian has been dealt until he wakes into the arms of his lady. The sex scenes are smoking hot, intense and wickedly wild. Readers of this series will enjoy catching up and re-connect with all the characters from previous New Species books.
Ms. Dohner gives readers another story that is nothing short of incredible and destined for keeper shelves everywhere. I know it has a place on mine!
