Review: Obsidian by Laurann Dohner
The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.
Dr. Allison Baker is obsessed with saving the comatose New Species male. She has tried everything and there’s only one option left. Alli will break every rule and put her life in danger by tempting 880 to wake, using only her feminine scent and touch. She just has to kidnap him and crawl into bed with him to make it work.
880 wakes in a different world with a small female who’s been sleeping beside him, caressing him and wrapping her sweet body around his, teasing his senses. He lies silent and still, listening and evaluating each arousing touch, fighting his body’s reaction. Hatred flares when he discovers she’s human, but Mercile stole everything from him so he decides it’s fair to take her in return.
But things quickly change and he wants her at his side and in his bed. 880 has chosen a new name—Obsidian—the personification of dark and dangerous. He’ll fight them all to keep her and no one will stand in his way of taking a new mate as well.
Laurann Dohner has created an entire race of beings and while this is set in the contemporary United States, they really have a world of their own and it is all done masterfully.
While this is the 8th book in the series and it would be easy to think that Ms. Dohner couldn't take the same basic ingredients and and make an entirely new creation she has and she continues to do so over and over! She is like a Cordon Bleu pastry chef and when given the basics has managed to turn out 8 mouthwatering creations all unique and all amazing.
In Obsidian the sweet and naive Allison takes on not only her man but the entire NSO. 880 or Obsidian as he decides to call himself is more damaged mentally and emotionally by is time in captivity than any of the New Species we have met to date.
Overall I found Obsidian an sexy, spicy read that at times leaves your heart racing and your panties damp and others it brings a tear to your eye at the tender moments. Once again we are treated to an amazing love story that fights the odds of the different worlds of the New Species and humans. I give this my highest rating of
