Erotic Romantic Comedy/Romantic Suspense
Blurb: 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.
Review: Ms Allen has done it again. Amazing characters, amazingly hot sex and a story that will have you ignoring the phone, the kids, and your family just so you can keep scrolling the pages. The setup was great. The story starts on a bad date of sorts, enter hot guy to diffuse the situation, hot guy takes girl home, and no, they don’t have sex but you know it’s inevitable because the sexual tension was just that thick.
But then the story really took off. Non-stop action and witty dialog make EXPERIMENTING WITH ED a pleasure to read. The sex scenes are varied and man, did I tingle in all the right place. I’d like to do my own experimenting with Ed. Darwin, as a secondary character, gives me reason to expect follow-up stories will have equally hot heroes with remarkable special abilities, but not so remarkable that the story becomes unbelievable.
The conclusion was just a bit disappointing as much of it happened off scene. However, that doesn’t detract from the brilliance of the rest of the story. I savored every word and will be first in line for the next installment. Well, what else can I say? I think Ms. Allen is a wonderful writer. I’m a fan of her heterosexual stories and ravenous over her gay romances. As long as she is writing stories, I’ll be reading them. Lucky me. Now go pick up a copy of EXPERIMENTING WITH ED for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
