One look at Brawn, and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. He’s also instantly attracted to her, but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough for the type of rough sex Brawn enjoys most. When he learns he’ll be living under the same roof with Becca, Brawn simply sees it as a chance to broaden his knowledge of humans. Hopefully he can do so while keeping his hands off her…

His good intentions go astray when they’re both kidnapped and locked together in a cage. Brawn finds himself reliving a nightmare when he’s once again subjected to breeding experiments at the hands of New Specie’s enemies-who will use Becca to get what they want. Brawn and Becca will have to depend on each other if they hope to survive.


Review:  Reading Brawn, which is the fifth book in the New Species Series is even better than the other four.

Brawn holds a place on the New Species council. He took the place of Jessie who is Justice’s mate. He finds out that he won’t be staying in a place by himself. Becca will be staying with him, and she’s his boss’s daughter. He’s not used to being out of the gated community.

Becca has been a widow for about a year. Her dad is very over protective and she just wants to have her own life. She has some scarring from her first marriage.

When Brawn and Becca meet the attraction is instant. Brawn doesn’t want her because she can’t handle the way he likes sex and Becca’s deal is for the very same reason. I could tell that they tried to fight it hard.

Things are taken out of their hands when they get kidnapped in the middle of the night and are taken to a place for breeding.

I couldn’t imagine having to go through all the things that the New Species had to go through. Having to be tied up, forced to have sex to breed, and given drugs to take away your control. They are treated so bad. To have to have my rights and control taken away would be so degrading.

For Becca and Brawn to survive they have to do what the sick twisted doctor wants them to do. I just couldn’t imagine the horror that they would face every day. There is no way that I would still be sane. To have to be forced to have sex and to be tied up and on so many drugs that I would kill and never remember anything.

I really loved reading Brawn. Every time I read the next book I realize that they are very strong people. I get more involved with the characters with every book. There is so much excitement and I get a rush from each one. To the New Species males, females are to be cherished and they take care of their mates. They are protective and take care of all the females wants and needs.

I wish with every book that this was how it could be in real life. To never have to worry about the person that you love hurting or cheating on you. I would recommend this series to everyone. Well time for me to read the next book in the series.
