Can Lisa Marie Rice write a bad book? I don’t think so. All I know is her heroes make me tingle in the most delicious way! “A Fine Specimen” is her latest e-book. It’s an expanded version of her 2000 Zebra book “Taming Nick” under the name Elizabeth Jennings and it’s guaranteed to raise your blood pressure in the best way.
Caitlin is a grad student working on her dissertation in law enforcement psychology. Her last project is a hands-on study and when her favorite instructor sets her up in his old precinct, she’s thrilled. Then she meets the de facto boss of said precinct and everything female in her wakes up for the first time in her fairly sheltered life.
Alex is Alpha from his head to his toes. His department finally has a way to bring down a crime lord and he’s eating and sleeping the case until they do. Then in walks a woman who will turn his world upside-down…and she looks like a kid. Thank God she’s not or he would have to arrest himself! But Alex has some serious issues with his past and to ‘get the girl’, he’ll have to face his worst nightmare.
I think I’m still sweating. This is one hot story and the expansion only makes it better. The lead characters are, at first glance, opposites. But the more you read, the more you realize they have more in common than even they know. And together? Well, they’re the perfect fit. Ms. Rice can write some of the best smoking hot romance I’ve ever read. Her characters have quirks and personalities that become real to the reader and this, in turn, causes the reader to invest a bit of themselves in the outcome. Even though this is an earlier work, it’s still one that you’ll want on your bookshelf (or computer).
