Review: Obsidian (New Species, #8) by Laurann Dohner

Obsidian
Parnormal Romance - Erotica - 18+ Adult

Book 8 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. Allison Baker is obsessed with saving the comatose New Species male. She has tried everything and there’s only one option left. Alli will break every rule and put her life in danger by tempting 880 to wake, using only her feminine scent and touch. She just has to kidnap him and crawl into bed with him to make it work.

880 wakes in a different world with a small female who’s been sleeping beside him, caressing him and wrapping her sweet body around his, teasing his senses. He lies silent and still, listening and evaluating each arousing touch, fighting his body’s reaction. Hatred flares when he discovers she’s human, but Mercile stole everything from him so he decides it’s fair to take her in return.

But things quickly change and he wants her at his side and in his bed. 880 has chosen a new name—Obsidian—the personification of dark and dangerous. He’ll fight them all to keep her and no one will stand in his way of taking a new mate as well.

Sigh! Obsidian is book 8 in Laurann Dohner’s New Speciesseries. Why do I keep reading this series? I understand when you have series this long there are bound to be ups and downs. I keep wanting something more (what that is I'm not sure). The books are easy to read and require little concentration. The author has a way of informing the reader about what is normal and what is not, which makes it easy to just pick up and read without any trouble. 

Obsidian 
has little action. The story is more about self discovery. The relationship between Obsidian and Allie started out promising, but felt rushed. Lots of of drama and interference in the relationship by other people. The drama and separation were unnecessary. I also take issue with the heightened senses they are supposed to have. If they have these senses then no one should be able to remove someone from homeland or invade their territory. I disliked the psychologist and could not understand why they let him get away with what he said to Allie. Why can’t they replace him? I’m spooled with the Breeds series by Lora Leigh and how the Breeds have control of their territory and extra technical gear to keep everyone safe. I keep getting the impression that the New Species really don’t have control of Homeland or Reservation. I know I should not compare this series to the Breeds, but its just so hard not to do. I have a love/hate relationship with the series. I will continue to read just to see what happens to the New Species.

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!



 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
