Dr. Joyce Yards has never met anyone as sexy or as irresistible as 466. He refuses to discuss anything except getting her naked beneath him. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter, his raw hunger for her is becoming aggressive, and she is falling for him. Joy knows the dire consequences if she gives in to desire. It will break her heart but she must walk away.
Moon has been drugged. He is feral and dangerous to everyone. The NSO doctors turn to the only female Moon ever cared about - the one who left him in the desert two years ago.
Moon isn’t the same male Joy once knew but she is willing to put her life on the line for him. There are no rules now. If sex tames the wild beast and triggers his fractured memories, allowing him moments of lucidity, then Joy will give him her body and her soul. She’ll do whatever it takes to save him.

I love this series and Ms. Dohner has not disappointed again. Moon and Joy are interesting characters, and so well suited. it was very enjoyable hearing how they were brought together.
Ms. Chambers narrates well, adopting different intonations for her characters, although Moon's and Smiley's 'voices' were pretty similar, but "Hey!" people's voices are often similar in real life too, so I certainly wouldn't complain about that - just an observation, that's all. :)
"DID I MISS THE EROTICA ??? GOOD NONETHELESS"
YES, but would recommend the friend begin at the beginning with Book 1.
I think I had too high of expectations for Moon, especially as the other books were so very tremendous. This one lacked the drama, romance and sensuality that the other books were so full of… also, this was placed in the erotic section in Coming Soon browser. I think I missed it somewhere.
I think she gets better and better with each book and she has a real knack for keeping the voices consistent so that, for instance, Smiley's voices sounds the same throughout all of the books, as well as Tiger's, Moon's, etc. I always like hearing a good narrator rather than the one that talks in my head when I am reading. Good job VC.
Absolutely, albeit somewhat disappointing.
Hope we don't have to wait too long for Harley, Flame, etc. and I hope they're on the same caliber as the first 8 books. This one felt rushed even though it seemed like forever that we, New Species fans, had to wait to listen to it.
Moon.... Ah... Moon!
I remember he was such a sweetie from the other books... and no he is not 247...the book we are all waiting for....I though his best bud was someone else...not Harley... but whatever...
This book was great... quite similar to the other New Species books... but thank goodness no anti-NS people from the outside tried to kill Moon's Mate this time... just her own client!
It was a good progressing drama, with some hot smexing...
I still don't like Trisha... in any book... she is just a twat!
Totally worth a buy, credit or sale if you have invested in the other books...
Narration was great...
"So Much Love for the NSO!"
My love for New Species started way back in book One Fury and a body would think that by book 10 my love would have waned. That is SO NOT the case!
Ms Dohner is still keeping things fresh and interesting. Granted this book is not like the other books in the series because of the flashbacks but if you are fascinated by all things NSO then it is an interesting look into what happened AFTER they'd been freed from Mercile.
I CAN'T WAIT for book 11 True!!!
"Love this series....except for this one"
I've loved every new species book since I heard the first one, but that came to a screeching halt with Moon. What a snoozefest! I was totally shocked. It's a given that all the New Species books have the same concept more or less, but Dohner has been really good about finding different angles to tell the same story. There's always humor, hot sex, etc. but this time around not only was there minimal humor, but the story in and of itself was just missing something. It seemed like a short story that was stretched to eight hours by adding random filler that should've been edited out. All that said, I do love this series and I will definitely buy the next book and many more from Laurann Dohner. She's a great erotic romance writer and the narrators of her series have been good. Despite my lukewarm review of Moon, this is definitely a series I'd recommend for the weekend listener looking for an interesting take on semi-paranormal erotic romance.
"Another Great by Laurann Dohner"
The 10th book already. Love this series. Laurann did it again with her stories. This one is again a little different from the other ones. This one is about Joy, a doctor, who unavoidably gets feeling for one of her patients, Moon. However, as usual, Moon doesn't believe her until he touches her and love hits him like a ton of bricks. Ms. Dohner does an excellent job of bringing you in and getting you hooked until you cannot put the book down until you finished it. Plus, she does a great job of giving you a little taste of the next book, so, if you are like me, you have the next book in your library before you are finished with this one. The narrator does an excellent job, as she has in all the other books. She does a great job of distinguishing the characters that Ms. Dohner so eloquently and completely describe. Love this series.
"The story is so stale"
I've read them all, but I'm bored with the recycled story with new names. The only fresh air was that Moon was out on his own and his interaction with the outside world. Can't we get the female's stories?
"Love this series!"
The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Vanessa Chambers makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill a book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job
If you are a fan of this series. Moon is another great addition to the series. Can't wait for True to be released on audio.
"Moon - the Hot Joyful Prankster turned Feral !!"
I have read all the books from this series and this is the first one the main characters have had sort of a relation/interaction before the main story begun. Moon is about Dr. Joyce Yards a therapist that was on a highly confidential mission to help the new species when they are just rescued. She is assigned to the very irresistible 466. 466 also later called Moon is a sexy canine/human who makes it hard for the doctor to keep their relationship professional. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter and hotter with each session till it breaks her up and Joy decides to leave before they can see where their relation can lead.
There is where the real story begins. Joy gets a phone call that Moon has been drugged, by an unknown drugs. his memory shattered. Now he’s feral and a dangerous threat to everyone. They ask Joy to help and of course she can’t resist..... Joy has always regretted leaving her old job as she had fallen so hard for Moon, she would of lost everything back then if she had acted on her feelings so had to leave.... There are no rules now. She is not his therapist anymore. Sex seems to tame the wild beast in Moon and triggers old memories to help him find his old self. The only thing she can do is help him and she is willing to try anything. Anything!
This is another fabulous Hot, Sexy and emotional installment to the New Species series. I enjoyed this book as much as the rest and felt so so sorry for Moon as he was always the happy go lucky and more settled of the New Species. I hope Laurann keeps these books coming, I'm ready for the next book NOW lol. :)
Well it's a Lauraan Dohner book so her books are almost always excellent. There were one or two that were not as good to me but everyone has different tastes. Excellent!!
"professional woman gets what she wants"
a woman was honorable ethical kept her job and kept her word . she's still got the male... woot!
"One of the best"
I have always had a soft spot for Moon so I knew I would enjoy this book. A far cry from the format of the other books in the series. A very different plot which I really like. I didn't really like Joy as much as some of the other mates & did feel Moon could do better (I am here if you are reading this Moon). Brawn is my favourite story with this as a close 2nd
Again and again as the book is just one of those you want read.
The understanding of the dr to the species
All as she does the story great
No as you need to spend time to listen to the story and breaking it up helps to concentrate
I have the whole series in paperback and e reader now audible
I no longer read print due to eyesight problems but really enjoy listening to these books
Vanessa narrates a few books I have listened too and she is very easy to listen to. Inflection and tone change according to what the characters are saying or thinking
This series is well worth listening to, the author and publisher assure me more of them are on the way, I await the release eagerly.
a TRUE story with a nice difference to other books with a similar 'theme'. The books are not just erotica with a few things filling in the spaces. The books would be worth listening to without the erotic elements in lots of instances
