Publisher's Summary

Book 9 in the New Species series. While each New Species book is a standalone, the greatest enjoyment will come from listening to them in series order.
Beauty resents being labeled Gift Species. Everyone is way too overprotective, males aren’t even allowed to speak to her and so far, true freedom eludes her. Then a big, sexy Species officer mistakes her for the enemy and takes her down - literally. Shadow is dumbfounded. He has a Gift pinned beneath him - a big no-no. But Beauty is fascinated and wants to know Shadow a lot better. She's full of newly discovered, unrequited passion and he’s just what she needs to satisfy her curiosity.
For Shadow, sex means pain and loathing. For Beauty, enslavement and ridicule. Two lonely souls who have never known a loving touch, together in a cabin in the woods. Every caress, every discovery brings them closer to a life they never thought possible... beyond even their wildest dreams.

This book was a little different than what we are used to.
Beauty is Species but she is also a gift female. Meaning she was made smaller almost helpless and sold to sick people who wanted to “own” a pet.

Sick right! I was glad when this one was saved in a previous book. But Beauty wants to be more like the other Females, but because she is gift all her people protect her even from themselves.

She is very attracted to Shadow and Shadow is very attracted to her but because she is labeled gift he stays away.

But the heart wants and even when they are put together. I was so saddened to see how much they both “hide” there true feelings because of there pasts.

They kind of heal each other. I enjoyed this book a lot. It was different and we get to see a different kind of love story. And how pain can heal pain.

Again the narration blows me away. Vanessa does a fabulous job as always.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Definitely one of my favorites in the series!

I fell in love with this series all over again with Shadow. I think this may be the final one in the New Species series but I wish it wasn't. This is definitely a credit worthy series. Shadow's and Beauty's love story is so sweet and endearing my heart was bursting at every chapter. Also this one had a good balance of romance, action and of course humor...I love the misinterpretations the New Species have. I'd love another New Species story, but if I can't get that, anything from Laurann Dohner will do, she's a great author of this genre and Vanessa Chambers is a narrator I'll seek out for sure!
