Natural Selection by Katie Allen

There's something wickedly naughty about love on the run

Darwin Bloom has no true identity—his laboratory creators made sure of that. Darwin isn't his real name and living on the lam doesn't exactly allow for deep romantic relationships, but the feelings he's developed for engineer Tom Cooper are strong enough to try.

Tom Cooper's life changed forever when he met Darwin. Gone are his fears of intimacy—Tom wants to do whatever Darwin asks, whenever he asks. How is it that the big, beautiful construction worker can seem dangerous and delicious at the same time?

But when Darwin's mysterious past comes back with a vengeance, there's more than just incredible sex at stake. Darwin promised Tom he'd never leave him… but keeping him safe might mean doing just that.

This is the second book in the story and while you don't necessarily need to read book one, there are a few characters that make a repeat appearance.

Darwin and Tom are a strange couple. Tom is an architect who is working on the same job as Darwin, who is a construction worker. They see each other a few times before Darwin muscles up the courage to ask Tom out.

What follows is a strange relationship where there could have been a great more development. I thought that this story lacked development of the main characters and instead, just kind of skimmed along. I wanted more.

Tom and Darwin then find themselves running from the very people that Darwin swore he would never return to. However, they never really do figure out who turns him in, despite the reader knowing, and then you have the brothers who are there, in the background, but not really a part of the story.

While this story was somewhat dry and there was very little chemistry between the main characters, I am hopeful that the next story will give me more.

Katie Allen is the fabulously filthy-minded alter ego of romantic-suspense author Katie Ruggle. She lived in an off-grid solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains until her family lured her back to Minnesota. When she’s not writing, Katie rides horses, shoots guns (target shooting only, since killing anything other than paper makes her ugly-cry), cross-country skis (badly) and travels to warm places where she can scuba dive. A graduate of the police academy, Katie is a self-professed forensics nerd. A fan of anything that makes her feel like a badass, she has trained in Krav Maga, boxing and gymnastics.
