Human Design, Book One
A self-professed lab geek, Claire doesn’t date much. In fact, she has more contact with the rats at the lab than with human males, not counting her toadlike boss, Gordon. When her coworkers drag her out to a club, Claire ends up fending off her drunk and handsy boss—until she’s rescued by Ed, the most beautiful bouncer she’s ever seen.
Her tentative, exhilarating relationship with Ed is interrupted when she learns her boss intends to falsify research data to win a grant. When Claire threatens to reveal the truth, she endangers her life, as well as Ed’s. Framed and forced to run, it’s not long before Claire discovers Ed is hiding a shocking secret of his own.
Through arson, police chases and attempted murder, the two grow closer, the intensity of their lovemaking rivaling that of their harrowing journey. Claire would be worried about the ever-present danger and a grim future as a fugitive…if she weren’t so engrossed in her erotic experiments with Ed.
Claire is a certified lab geek and she knows that has a big affect on her social life, or lack thereof. So when she goes out to celebrate with the boss and other co-workers she is shocked when her boss becomes handsy, but even more shocked when the sex god of a bouncer decides to save her and then lets her know how attracted he is to her.
Ed takes one look at Claire and all his possessive instincts kick in, not to mention that he wants her in a bad way. When he realizes she is in danger he has no plan to leave her side and in the process she steals his heart, but can they survive the people out too harm Claire?
This is a great suspense romance story; you will absolutely love Claire and her quick wit and funny remarks, and combine that with Ed and his protective streak with Claire and the little mouse he is so determined to keep safe you will love it.
Katie Allen does a great job keeping you wondering what is going to happen next. With this wonderful story by Katie you will not be able to not fall in love with Claire and Ed, she has you laughing one minute and your heart racing the next wondering what is in store for those two.
