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.

"Good romantic suspense!"
I love all of Lisa Marie Rice's books! This audiobook had some humor, suspense and romance in it. The story is about a somewhat jaded detective and the nerdy grad student in criminology who is slated to shadow him. Somewhere between his initial annoyance and catching the bad guy he starts to fall for her. She's overwhelmed by his alpha 'take charge' attitude. But when her life is in danger he is her knight in shining armor. Good narration, but really wish there was a male voice for Alex.
This is a sweet story with a predictable plot and one dimensional characters. It's not meant to be deep and meaningful - it's a nice read that's warm and fuzzy.
Tough cop, innocent girl/woman, threat on life of said girl, realisation by said cop that for all his toughness and determination to be single, he loves her and can't' live without her.
