Justice North is the face of New Species. Seeing him up close makes Jessie’s heart race. He’s the ultimate alpha male—big, muscular, exotically beautiful…and dangerous. Of course he’s off limits. But then the sexy man purrs and all bets are off.
Jessie Dupree is a mouthy, fiery human female who brings out the animal in Justice. She wants to show him how to relax, and he’s all for anything she wants to do, but Justice has sworn to protect his people and to take a Species mate. He’s torn between the woman he wants and the oath he’s taken.
Jessie knows a relationship between them probably won’t end well, heartbreak is inevitable. But that won’t stop her from freeing the wildness inside Justice and spending every moment she can steal wrapped around his hot body, making him roar with passion.
JUSTICE is the fourth book in the New Species series, and I’ve been waiting for Justice’s story since meeting him in the first book. It’s also one of the final books that includes—what I call—an original; a character introduced in the first or second book. Almost all the characters that get their own books from here on out are only introduced in the book that comes before theirs. Sometimes, their own book is their introduction.
“You make me happy, Jessie. I’m so glad you came into my life. You’re a breath of sunshine in the dark stillness my life has become.”
Justice is the ultimate alpha male; he is the New Species leader and is in charge of them all. Chosen for his strength and amazing control, it was exciting to watch him lose complete control when it came to Jessie. His desire to take her as his mate was off-the-charts, but he fought it at almost every turn for several reasons, all of which were self-sacrificing for the good of his people.
Jessie was a good match for Justice because she was very strong and could kick some serious ass. She’s had some military training, which came in handy after Justice was gravely injured in an attack. She was able to protect and defend him, showing every New Species that she was the perfect mate for their leader.
As much as I enjoyed this book, there were two things that annoyed me. First, Jessie told anyone who would listen that she was part of the task force that rescued Gift Females, and she brought it up so many times that it felt like she was bragging. Secondly, I didn’t like how her superior kept threatening to put her over his knee and spank her ass, or haul her ass in front of the men and whip it, if she didn’t follow his orders. I couldn’t stop myself from cringing every time he did it.
JUSTICE is told in dual POVs and comes with a HEA for Justice and Jessie. I think every book within this series can be read as a stand-alone, but I think you’ll get more enjoyment if you read the series in order.
