Review: True (New Species, #11) by Laurann Dohner

Paranormal Romance - Erotica - 18+ Adult

Jeanie loves a New Species and is willing to pay for that love with pain, tears and heartbreak. She’ll do anything to keep 710 alive but she never wants him to know how she suffered for him. He’s the reason for her mission in life—freeing others like him.

True has a new life working with the NSO to rescue his people. A good life, until he encounters a dying woman—the female who betrayed him. True should feel gratified that she’s finally going to pay for her crimes, but she claims to be a victim too. He is still irresistibly drawn to the pretty little human who touched his heart and made him want her. When he clasps her hand to offer comfort, his instincts kick in and True will fight everyone to protect her.

True is the 11th book in the New Species series by Laurann Dohner. The premise is the same as all the other New Species books in that an evil drug company used, enslaved and mistreated New Species; the freed new species are living in two independent areas within the USA and are continuing to investigate and find New Species still enslaved. 

Ms. Dohner did not disappoint. She takes us to a facility that still has New Species that are being used for tests. Showing us a technician who sees the New Species as individual people and wants to save them. I enjoyed the quick fast paced plot with a whole new bad guy who has even more access to information then you would think. As for the relationship we have seen a similar situation in the New Species series with Ellie and Fury's story, but their are differences that make True different. Then we have the sexual relationship between True and Jeanie. Ms. Dohner did not fail us on the sexual tension and explosive bedroom action between our main characters. 

I enjoyed Jeanie. She is kind, caring, strong and only wants to help. She went through a lot for True and others in her facility. I was surprised to see this twist, thou it has been indicated in previous New Species books what the bad facility wants. I was pleased to see that she received allies in True and the others from her facility when she needed help. They showed solidarity and friendship. I also liked True in this story. He is so sweet and protective of Jeanie, even thou he felt Jeanie had betrayed him, he wasn't as bent on revenge against her. I admired his ability to stand by Jeanie and support her. It was very nice to see this. 

I felt that True had the right mix of romance and mystery, with a few new twists that made it a bit different from the other New Species books. I as enjoyed the little bit of humor mixed in with the danger. True was a truly great read in this series and I recommended it for anyone who likes a little mystery with there erotic.

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…
