Book Review: Stranded with the Detective (Tennessee SWAT #4) by Lena Diaz
Title: Stranded with the Detective (Tennessee SWAT #4)
Author: Lena Diaz
Stars: 3 1/2
While the story is pretty straight forward I wasn't able to really connect with the characters. The story would drag on and just when it would pick up again it would stop for them to have sex. While I know that is how Harlequin Intrigue have been I have found others that have strong stories with the romance there but not stopping and starting. Piper is a stronger character I just wish there had been less sex and more character development as well as deeper story that readers could really hang on to.
