Slade has the hots for the new female Doctor that Justice hired for homeland but he feels like he is cheating because of what he felt for the doctor who treated him when he was in the hospital. When he finds out they are one and the same he could kick himself for screwing up his chances with her. And the worst part is every time he makes any head way in the right direction, he screws it.

I could read Slade over and over again and be a happy woman. It has thrilling rolling SUV rides, a chilling near rape scene that you almost don’t see coming and steamy hot sex scenes that leave panting and wishing it was your turn. Slade will give you everything you need to keep you glued to it. I should know I have three other books I am trying to read and they are feeling very much neglected, shame on me, NOT 🙂 With this being my second or is third time reading this particular book you would think putting it down would be easy, nope didn’t happen and I was nearly late for work for the last two days, try explaining that to your boss “Um gosh, i am sorry, Boss, but the book would not let me put it down, I swear it really wouldn’t.”

Now that I have raved about how much I loved reading Slade it is time to give the down side which is the editing which is actually better than some I still found some typos like ‘this; when it was obvious that it should have been ‘his’ and ‘injures’ which I think should have been ‘injuries’ and the a repeated phrase in one sentence and a missing word but thankfully there were so few that when I counted it wasn’t so bad. Now just so everyone knows I am going to make a change to how I award stars for every five edits I find I will knock off a star in the overall ranking until it is down to one. That being said Slade is a book I will most likely read over and over again so I would usually give it a five-star ranking but with the edits I counted it will only get four.

Favorite Quotes were numerous and hard to choose from but I chose to share one from Slade and one from Moon, I want to also share the last conversation in the book but giving away the end would truly be tacky.

“Do you want to lean over and pick something else up before I go inside? I could throw things in your path for you to have to move.”—Slade

“It’s not her ass you have your name put on, Harley. You have her tattoo it on her arm so when she forgets your name, it’s right there. We all know how memorable you aren’t. She’d have to be a contortionist to see your name on her ass.”—Moon

Book Cover Rating
I generally complain about covers that only show the guy or don’t depict what the book is about but when I look at this cover, it is so steamy I am tempted to give it a heat rating instead.

Book’s Blurb
Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver—but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland…he doesn’t even remember her!

The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she’s not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he’s haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He’s blown it—she’ll never give him a chance now.

But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.

Reader Advisory: There is a scene of an attempted rape.
