Overview

Lieutenant Alex Cruz eats, sleeps and breathes law enforcement. He’s tough and brusque, and cops and criminals alike tremble before him. And that’s the way he likes it. Until he meets Caitlin Summers—and decides he wants her trembling beneath him.

The beautiful scholar is doing dissertation research in his cop shop, and seriously messing with his head. His self-imposed sexual abstinence comes to a screeching halt in Caitlin’s ratty hotel room and dies a permanent death in his bed…and his kitchen…and his living room. Caitlin is also intelligent and funny, kind and generous, her smile a burst of warmth in his cold, austere life. And that scares the crap out of him.

With his head and heart fighting a battle of wills, Alex can barely concentrate on work. And that’s too bad—because his dangerous job and his newfound love are about to clash in the worst way possible.

I really dont think this book was worth the money. The story felt unbalanced. Maybe it was meant to be longer and they cut it down? I have to admit I'm bummed. This book really sounded intresting and had a 4 star rating. 181 pages

I liked it, there were some nice laugh out loud moments, but thought the female lead could have used a backbone. Okay alex, yes alex....and i really didn't like the way she was described. First she looked 16, then the author said 12. I have a hard time believing that a 38 year old badass cop would desire someone who looks like that.

Caitlin's graduate studies in psychology with a focus on historical police work leads her to Alex's police station, where she's got permission from his boss Ray (whom he owes a big favour) to spend a week studying dominance in the work force. And there is certainly no better place to check out alpha tendencies then the bustling and hardworking local cop shop. She expects Alex to be the alpha male from everything she's heard, and he doesn't disappoint. What she doesn't expect is for his interest in her to ramp up all her girly parts! She's old enough to know her own mind as she's in her mid-twenties and when Alex makes it clear that he's interested (despite his better judgement), it leads to some hot and sexy scenes between them - and a quick move-in to his place on her part when the hotel she's staying at is clearly not safe. But while Caitlin can see herself falling for Alex, he's committed to keeping the status quo, at least until a twist in the second half sees Alex realizing how much Caitlin has come to mean to him in such a short time. It's a steamy insta-love story, and Alex comes across as sometimes a bit over bearing and chauvinistic but he has a good heart. It's an enjoyable novella that delivers the type of story I expect from this author. 3.5 stars.
