Tiger pulled a woman out from under a dog pile during a bar fight to discover she isn’t breather, administering CPR she regains consciousness and he takes her outside for air, where she proceeds to kiss and fondle him. Now he can’t stop thinking about her, not that it matters, he doesn’t do humans and he doesn’t want a mate. Then again he sure doesn’t want any other males to have her so if she is going to be involved with any New Species IT IS GOING TO BE HIM.

Zandy applied for a job with the NSO after being fired for refusing her dick head boss’ request to have sex with him. Her only hope when starting there is to not run into the tall gorgeous new species she had kissed after she had been trampled by heard of wild barbarians during a bar fight. She manages to make it a far as lunch before spotting him and hot damn he still turns her on and to bad she has given up on men because always picks the wrong one.

Poor tiger sure knows how to make a mess of things but hey the poor guy is probably scared shitless of what having a mate means. Poor Zandy, everyone keeps telling her that Tiger doesn’t do humans and with his hot and cold back and forth it is a wonder she doesn’t have whip lash to go with all her bruises from being attacked by crazy people and lonely and horny new species from the wild zone. I am kind of disappointed though that once their relationship came to light that he didn’t get teased more for all the times he harassed his friends when they took mates.

Laurann is very good at writing stories that make want to laugh cry and or punch something and you got all of that with Tiger and so that brings me again the ratings and what I think this book should get for a rating. I think over all This author has a good editing team but they just keep missing enough that it always seems to knock the ratings down by a star or two. Even though I would like to give this book a four-star rating because I do like it very much just not as much as Fury or Justice, which surprises me because through the whole series Tiger has been one my favorite characters and I couldn’t wait for his turn to mate, who knows maybe on a future reading my thought process will change. Sorry, back to the rating, I did find a significant number of errors to reduce the four-star rating to a three-star rating which really sucks with this being better than just an ok book.

This time I am adding two quotes but one I like and one is so freaking lame and well we can discuss it when we get there.

Lame quote
“Fuck that. Take me.”—Zandy
Ok, I get that ‘take me’ is most authors go to line when someone is about to get their brains fuck out but seriously it just seems like the woman is in a hurry to get the deed done because she isn’t really into it and just wants it done at least that is what it looks like in the movies.

Awesome quote
“Let’s go, piss pants. The river is calling your name.”—Vengeance
I knew there was a reason I liked Vengeance and I hope he finds his mate soon.

Book’s Blurb
Zandy’s had too much to drink and is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She knows she’s going to die. When next her eyes open, a beautiful man-creature is holding her in his arms. He’s just too tempting to resist; her very own fallen angel. She wraps herself around his body, determined to have him. But when this angel turns out to be flesh and blood, reality crashes in—she’s seducing a New Species.

Tiger’s shock quickly turns to intense passion when the human female kisses him, despite the fact she’s trying to get his clothes off while he’s engaged in a task force operation. He’s also made it clear he’ll never take a mate. Rather difficult when he and Zandy can’t keep their hands off each other. The taste and feel of his little human just leaves Tiger wanting more.
