Fury by Laurann Dohner

Blurb: Book 1 in the New Species series.

Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments. Company scientists have spliced human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such “experiment” captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him—even if he hates her for it.

Fury has never known compassion or love. He’s spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. Now he’s free and set on vengeance. He vows to end her life but when she’s finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

Fury can’t resist Ellie—the touch of her hands, her mouth on his skin, her body wrapped around his. He’s obsessed with the scent of his woman. And Ellie wants Fury—always has. She craves his big, powerful body and wants to heal his desolate heart.

But loving Fury is one thing…taming him is another.

This was the best type of New Species book I’ve ever read. A whole different concept explored that kept me hanging from the first chapter; I just had to finish reading and couldn’t put it down.

The plot twists were unique and a refreshing change, the chemistry between the main leads scorching. When the animal instincts took over, far from being repulsed and unbelievable as a story, this part actually made the book work.

Best Bits: When the nurse came on to Fury and he became all animal (watch out for that scene).

Verdict: A really enjoyable read that is better than any New Species book I’ve read before. A keeper.
