Dr. Joyce Yards has never met anyone as irresistible as 466. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter, his raw sexual hunger becoming aggressive, and he refuses to discuss anything except the possibility of getting her naked. Joy understands the dire consequences if she indulges her passion. It will break her heart but she must walk away.

Moon has been drugged, his memory shattered, and he’s now little more than feral, a dangerous threat to everyone. In their need for help, the NSO doctors turn to the only female Moon ever cared about—the one who left him behind two years ago.

Moon isn’t the same male Joy once knew. There are no rules now. If sex tames the wild beast and triggers his fractured memories, allowing him moments of lucidity, then Joy will give him everything, body and soul. She’ll do whatever it takes to save him—even at the cost of her own life
My Review
Moon has been shot with a drug while on patrol, and the results have been disastrous. They have turned Moon into a man the New Species don't know. Moon doesn't recognize anyone, and has been reduced to mere animal instinct, and is dangerous to anyone close to him. But there is one person that may be able to help him...a woman he has loved but rejected him. Joy was Moon's therapist but circumstances started to get more intimate between them, and Joy knew that if she was found out being close to Moon, she would be fired and maybe thrown in jail for doing so. In order to protect Moon from a dangerous situation, and to protect her heart, she left him, knowing that it was for the best, even though she has regretted her choice ever since. When she is asked to come help Moon by the NSO, she is more than willing. However she was never prepared for what has happened to Moon. She doesn't recognize the man she loves in any way, but for some reason he responds to her in a way that he responds to none other. Joy is desperate to get him back to who he was, no matter the cost. When he starts to slowly come back to her, she wonders if he will want her in his life or to leave him forever...

My Thoughts 
It seems like forever since I have been waiting for this story to come out...I bought it the very day it came out, I could hardly wait to read it. For many of you, you know I don't read erotica very much, but I have found a love in this series. For me its not just erotica, the stories always strike a chord, and are near impossible to put down, and definitely a "page turner". The series is about men and women who have had their genetics messed with and have animal traits-some stronger than others. Moon is a canine, and has been known as playful yet fierce at times. In the last book we see Moon being shot by a dart that changes him. I was so excited to read his story--FINALLY. I have been waiting for his for quite some time now. There were quite a few aspects that i just adored. First is the emotional connection we see with Moon and Joy. At first we see that Joy is able to calm Moon down when no one else can. There are quite a few sensual scenes that bring Moon out more and more, but there was also a strong emotional connection as well. I enjoyed seeing Moon in a more primative way, but there was also something unique about the situation. I think I ADORED Joy, she is so protective of Moon and determined to save him even though she knows he may end up killing her. There was many intense scenes and emotions that played out in this story. Their love connection was so sweet and tender at times and fierce and passionate at other times. It seemed to balance out in the end.

Overall a sensual read that instills deep emotion through to the reader, and such talent comes from Laurann Dohner who has a way with her writing that captures your attention immediately. Another great addition to a astounding series which has won my heart over and over!! Looking forward to more to this series!!!

First Line 
Joy tried to relax in the chair but worry over her client made her fidget.

Favorite Quote 
"Kiss me."
He sucked in air and another soft growl rumbled from him. "I'm going to do everything to you."
