Science geek Claire spends most days in the confines of her laboratory, safely avoiding humans. So her world is sent into a sexy tailspin when a rare night out at the club starts with a game of Avoid Your Handsy Boss and ends with getting rescued by the most perfect male specimen she's ever seen.
Bouncer Ed can't get enough of Claire, or of watching his "little mouse" let loose when he touches her. Saving her once was easy, even fun. But his fiercely protective nature goes into overdrive when Claire's determination to reveal what's really going on in the lab endangers both their lives.
Being on the run isn't enough to keep Claire's hands off her beautiful protector, or to stop them from falling in love. But it isn't long before Claire discovers Ed is hiding a shocking secret of his own…

5 scientifically enhanced stars for EROTIC EXPERIMENTS!
Claire isn't the partying type, but when she meets bouncer Edward Astor at a club, she can't help but be super glad she went out that night. With moves that would be SOP for a stalker, Ed nonetheless charms her, making her feel cherished and protected. And when someone decides she'd be better off dead, Claire is VERY glad for Ed's super spidey senses that keep showing at just the right time. It's dangerous enough running from the police, accused of a crime she didn't commit, but when she finds out the reason behind Ed's own need to flee, Claire realizes that shit just got REAL for her and her new man.
Wooooah mama, this is one yummy read! I loved every single thing about this book, and I have to say, despite my typical aversion to sci-fi and paranormal reads, this might be in the top 10 of my favorite books of the year thus far! Besides the fun plot, funny dialogue and fast-paced storyline, EROTIC EXPERIMENTS was sexy as hell (the supply closet scene was absolutely delicious…as was the shower scene, the truck scene…they were all hot as hell)!! Ed's strong and silent persona was so opposite to Claire's bubbly and talkative one, but it just worked! I'm excited to get Darwin's story in Natural Selection, the next book in Ms. Allen's Research And Desire series!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence; mild attempted murder.
