BOOK Shadow AUTHOR Laurann Dohner author Laurann Dohner – ecogenlife.org

Very good book like all the others I m really in love with all the guys of the serieShadow is cute with beauty and very rotective and even if she s shy about sex things she try not to be the victim she was when in captivityLove their HEA Now I want to read the following books Moon Vengeance and Leo now I know he has a tail Good thing Beauty was a bad ass because Shadow could not get it together It really was a sweet and fun book I loved the way the NSO came together to support them It was beautiful Ooo this guy s name is Shadow That makes me think of a mysterious dark haired man who is a brooding and uiet Like thisBut that is completely wrong Our guy named Shadow is tan blonde hair in a military cut blue eyes easy going and funny Like a bro not a shadowIt just seems kinda deceiving But these New Species The Wingman Chronicles pick out some weird names sometimes There is one named Book one named Creek and another named Moon I mean I get that they allicked things they like but come on If we were going to name ourselves random items we like I would be called Cake or Bed Most of my dreams are cake relatedA cake bed the best of both worldsSo we have Shadow our bro New Species doing guard duty at the compound one night when he spots Beauty one of the female Species who had been used as a sex slave before being rescued She is out running in a storm and he ends up taking shelter with her The thing is the males are not allowed to touch or even talk to the females that were rescued from sexual slavery They are completely taboo off limits no go zone So we all know what that means rightNo it s bow chicka wow wow not brown chicken brown cowBeauty doesn t like being coddled and having no male exposure She s lonely and she needs a little shadow in her life and she needs a lotta Shadow in her bed so she tells another female that she s ready for some action They need to stop the cock blockingThese New Species are very literalSo the New Species government does what all governments do they have a meeting to discuss whether or not they will allow Beauty to have sex Kinda reminds me of some old white guys who form special committees in the government to make decisions about women s reproductive issues Oh I m not bitter or anything If anyone could understand the complicated journey of a female navigating her sexuality and fertility it s a group of old men in governmentLuckily for Beauty and Shadow they vote to allow them to have sex Thank goodness If there had just been one vote swinging the other way they might have had to stay away from each other for ever Cuz we all know that if the government told us that we can t have sex we would all cease and desist immediatelySo they go to a cabin in the woods for some alone time There is some drama but most of the book is them discussing their feelings sigh I don t even like to discuss my own feelings let alone read about other Flood Legends people s feeling discussionsThe only thing that saved this story for me was an awesome shoot out in the woods and Breeze who is by far one of the best characters in this series 4 45 starsThis was a really good story I loved Beauty and Shadow and really enjoyed their story This one has made it to my second favorite of this series I can t help it Valiant is still my fave Beauty is a NS New Specieseople that were made in a lab with human DNA merged with animal DNA female but also has the misfortune of being a Gift female the NS females that were made smaller and weaker than most NS and given away to the financiers of the lab that created them This meant she was The Best Of Saint Louis put through some really bad stuff by a man that saw her as aossession Fortunately for Beauty she was rescued and taken to Homeland a compound owned by the freed NS The Brother-Offended Checklist people where she recovered and learned to live free Theroblem is that since the Gift females as seen as weak they re highly rotected The NS males aren t even allowed to talk to them and their movements even within the compound are very restricted Most of the Gift females don t mind because they have no interest in males but Beauty is different Beauty is trying to get over her ast abuse and wants a relationship with a male Kind of hard to do when you re not even allowed to talk to them One night when she s feeling very restrained by her circumstances she leaves the women s dorms and goes for a run not expecting to get tackled when she s mistaken for a human Shadow is a NS male and has been through a rough Detour (Something in Common, past in the labs which has him avoiding females intimately He has been working with the human task force that goes out to capture the fugitives still out there wanted for crimes against the NSeople and also saving any NS マジック・ツリーハウス〈1〉恐竜の谷の大冒険 people that discovered being held captive He s best friends with Wrath and envies him his mate but doubts he ll ever be able to want a female human or NS or ever have a mate Things change when he captures what he thinks is a human intruder in Homeland and she ends up being a Gift NS female instead When Shadow captures Beauty there s a bad storm that comes up and as he s trying to get herrotection from the rain he takes them to a storage shed in the area As soon as they get inside hail starts up and it s too dangerous to go outside for a while When it s safer Shadow wants to go call a female NS officer standard rocedure with a Gift female but Beauty doesn t want him to leave She s interested in the big NS male and convinces him she d be too scared if he left her alone a bit of an exaggeration so. 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 to the ground Shadow is.

He wont leave They start talking and share a bit of themselves During this time Beauty brings up her feelings of feeling captive by the rules set in lace to keep her safe This is unthinkable to the NS because they were kept captive for so long She tells Shadow how lonely she is and would like for someone to hold her and sleep with her in their arms While the storm still rages outside Shadow decides he ll give her the night in his arm it s only Good Authority Good Authority platonic though The next morning they re found as they re waking up together and since being alone with her is really against the rules Shadow has to go with Security and account for his actions Breeze goes to talk to Beauty and finds out what happened and also Beauty s need for than she s allowed by the rules around her Breeze brings this issue to the attention of the NS leaders and they decide that Beauty and Shadow should spend some time together Shadow and Beauty are given a chance to bond by being sent to Reservation another NS compound and they have 2 weeks together in a secluded cabin Beauty is interested in Shadow but is very shy and wont make the first move Shadow at first is ratherissed that they sent him there without actually asking him but does finally admit his return interest in Beauty The Carneycopia problem lies in the fact that Shadow doesn t know a lot about females and because of what he wasut through in the lab he s afraid he might hurt Beauty if he does try to share sex with her Things don t go well at first but eventually Beauty takes the bull by the horns and get them talking which eventually leads to other thingsthing that work out very well between them There are a few stumbling blocks but everything starts going Captives of New Pompeii (New Pompeii, pretty well between Beauty and Shadow Things get disrupted when mercenaries manage to get on to Reservation hired by Beauty srevious captor and sent to bring her back to him They cause a lot of roblems but things do get handled and Beauty shows some real courage in handling herself and not being the weak female they all thought her There s a little stress at the end until Shadow and Beauty are able to talk things out after the danger has been handled and all but they do talk Beauty showing courage in not being afraid to speak up for what she wants and decide they want to stay together They become mates and start their well deserved HEAThis was a really good story I loved Beauty and Shadow and seeing them work through their asts to be together It was a very good romance but I also liked the story it told about Beauty overcoming how she s seen both by others and herself striving to be and showing a lot of courage when facing danger both Beard Necessities (Winston Brothers, physical and emotional Shadow did well too but I felt Beauty handled it better than Shadow overall LOL I can t wait for book 10 Moon s book I 3 Moon I d recommend this book 2 thumbs up D note I listened to the audio version of this book The narrator did a very good job re read after another re read I think I would rate this a 4 now I don t know how Beauty felt with everyone treating her like a kid that would have driven me mad Bumping this up to a 3 12 star rating I still like this book but I still feel the same as the first time I read this oneThis is a hard review for me because I love Laurann Dohner I love her stories I love her style of writing and I always get wrapped into her worlds and her characters But I knew from the beginning that I didn t really want to read this book and it s nothing to do with her stories or her writing style I just have never been interested in reading about a gift species and that s why I waited so long to read this book With Moon coming out in a few daysYAY I knew I needed to get down to it and read this book Even though I wasn t interested in a gift female I have to say that LD still brought a really good story the world building was great and the incorporation of the side characters were great This book was a lot different than the other books in that we don t get a lot of externalroblems This book focuses almost completely on Shadow and beauty and them being together the whole time It was interesting to see how the gift females were treated and that while the species were trying their best to Alfie Outdoors protect the gift females they were actually giving them aretty The Agile Team Handbook, 2nd Edition prisons and treating them like kids After reading this book I dislike Kit and as always Breeze was great So yes the story was good but I couldn t connect with the heroine and didn t like it as much as the others Beauty has spent her life in captivityOnly brought out of her basement dungeon when Master needed her tolease him sexually Her guards referred to her as Mud But she was a Gift Gifts were New species that were genetically altered with animal DNA They were developed to be sexual companions and they are beautiful Beauty was created with Primate DNAThe Gifts that have been rescued are treated like fine china They are not allowed to interact with any males and not are not even allowed to work as all other New Species do Beauty often hears the other species having sex thru the walls of her dorm but instead of fear she feels a longing She longs to be free to experience life and not to be Her Mothers Daughter

Otions he felt towards her His instincts took over and he immediately wanted to Cant Fake This protect and keep her safeShadow suffers nightmares from years of torture and breeding by his captives He has never had consensual sex and is afraid to attempt to be with a female But Beauty is a temptation that he is unable to refuse These two were soerfect for each other She d wanted him to kiss her Her

StarsSpoilers I m really not I m scared all the time but I m afraid of wasting the life I ve been given by never taking chances I have enough regrets So Shadow is the 9th book in the New Species Series Beauty is sick of being called gift Everyone treats her with kid gloves Men aren t allowed to even talk to gift females It s like a rettier rison and Beauty is sick of it She wants a life love and she just wants to be treated n I can t wait to read Shadow s book I heard on Laurann s blog that Shadow will be with Beauty a gift female Both have been hurt and it will be great to read how each of them overcome their insecurities I loved this one I wasn t uite sure how I was going to feel about the Paying Daddys Debt pairing with Shadow Beauty but I must say these two are just beautiful together I loved that this one is about a Species Femaleairing this time and not our Stripes of Gehenna past books in this series where they are all about the Species Males human femalesWhat do you need Tell me It s yours Shadow sighs Just because Beauty is alot vulnerable than her female species counterparts does in no way cancel out her ability to think feel and defend herself She has heart And she shows it beautifullyI really love the message in this one Just because one has endured unspeakable acts by the hands of another does not mean one should remain in fear of living and loving Taking back yourower through living your life and moving forward in a Cheerleader For Hire positive wayI like how this story was executed The writing and dialogue is definitely alot tighter in this one I loved the brief glimpses we get from some of ourrevious Species males and I just can t say this enough I love love love ShadowThe heartfelt exchange you will see between Beauty and Shane towards the end was really beautiful I m glad I got to see that I was wonderinghoping if or when we would ever see him again after meeting him in the Time Slips prologueAll in all this was another great installment to this series I would recommend this read Please read this series in order Well I don t know about everyone else but I loved this book Beauty was awesome the right blend of uiet and strength And for some reason I don t know why I have discovered an obsession for Leo I really don t know why since he is only mentioned about three times in this book but I adore him He is mine do you hear me He Is Mine Valiant has warned them sternly to avoid this area He keeps them in control for the mostart Leo is also good with intimidation He s a wild bastard though Who is Leo Is he a danger Another feline He won t come after the Gift I d worry about him The Complete Baby and Toddler Cookbook playingranks but he s got heart He s sane but doesn t follow rules He enjoys giving the officers headaches Ok and maybe its the fact he has a tail How cool is that We finally have a species with a tail Almost like Valiant but not uite as crazy And he s single Or was mine nowIt definitely took some surprising turns for me but I really enjoyed it Beauty was uite lucky with the man she was gifted to so I understand she was not uite like Tiny or Half Stormy Waters (Dar and Kerry, pint which is disappointing because I really enjoyed reading about a Gift female Doesn t seem likely Tiny and Halfint will get a book Maybe a different Gift female Though I don t think we ve heard of may others Maybe a Gift with a Task force guy That d be a cool twist DI was slightly happy that Moon s book was next loved him ever since Slade but I thought it wouldn t be as intense as the others because of how relaxed he is Hah well that s all ruined now Can t wait for his book Being shot with a dart that Passage of the Republic practically turns them feral Didn t see that one coming Moonromises to be interesting Perhaps after Moon she will do Ven I hope so his story seems like it will be very interesting Then Jericho I really want to read his book too I d also want her to do Leo but that would mean giving him up to a Species or human and there is no way I m doing thatWhy is it when I finally decide to hate someone in her books she makes them seem not that bad Looks like there is a lot to Kit than we thought Someone has some hidden issues But she s still not well liked by me Obsidian is my second favorite male and he was clearly taken when she hit on him Ven was annoying until we learned his story Kit s story might be really sad but she s still a bit of a bitch Gonna have to work hard LD to make me like herMoon can t come out fast enough No release date for it yet damn Soon hopefully I m dying to see how and who solves the drug A Patriots History of the United States problem I thought a doctor at first butrobably not The girls are already taken right Trisha and Ali Maybe a Species Maybe a human Who knows It will have to come The Vow put uickly so when can find out and get our next NS hit hint hint. Nd revulsion For Beauty it was enslavement and ridicule Two lonely souls who have never known a lover’s touch together in a cabin in the woods Each touch every discovery brings them closer to a life they never thoughtossiblebeyond even their dreams.
