Darkness by Laurann Dohner
“I want you so bad sometimes I have to fight myself not to take you.”
Author: Laurann Dohner
Series: New Species Series # 12
Kat’s boss wants dirt on the NSO. She is sent to Homeland undercover but everything goes wrong as soon as she enters the front gates. She is arrested by a big, powerful, sexy New Species but she is not frightened. He turns her on and things heat up fast between them. Now, she just hopes he doesn’t break her heart.
Darkness admires Kat’s courage but he cannot trust anything she says. He hasn’t been with a female for years because he knows he is too damaged. He is not mate material, despite his desire to possess her in every way. Darkness fears losing control—the one thing that defines his life. He doesn’t think he can tear down the protective walls he’s built, even for her.
Thoughts: As always, this was a great addition to the New Species series – and I love Laurann Dohner! No matter what she writes it is amazing. With that being said, i have to admit that Darkness was a bit different than what I was expecting. For me, it was similar to a lot of the other titles – that’s not a bad thing, but I wanted a little more. This one doesn’t stand out as one of the top ones in the series, but it’s not bad either – it’s an okay title in an amazing series.
Personally, I can’t wait to get one featuring a female species – I can’t wait to see that interesting twist! And it might liven the series back up. This one has me hoping that the series is not starting to go a little stale – and I sincerely hope that is not the case as this is my favorite series right now. But it has been known to happen (especially when it comes to series that go on for this long). I guess we’ll see when Smiley comes out in a few weeks!
