Tennessee Takedown by Lena Diaz
Published: February 1, 2014
A SWAT officer in small-town Tennessee will do anything to protect the innocent beauty whose life has been put on the line in Lena Diaz’s Tennessee Takedown
It can’t be a coincidence that in the past twenty-four hours, three different thugs have tried to kill or abduct Ashley Parrish. Sexy SWAT team leader Dillon Gray saved her, but now he wonders why someone would want to murder the beautiful accountant and why he finds her so infuriatingly attractive.
Then the FBI comes after Ashley for embezzlement, and Dillon knows he must protect her from a killer and prove she’s being framed. Taking her on a hair-raising run through dangerous terrain barely fazes him. But wanting her from more than just one night scares the hell out of him.
Hotness rating 2.5 out of 5
Tennessee Takedown is the first Lena Diaz book that I have had the good fortune to read and hopefully it won’t be my last. I loved, loved, loved this book! The pace was fast, the characters were likeable, and the plot was fun to read.
Ashley Parrish is an auditor. She loves her job! It gives her the chance to travel to different companies, do her job and then move on. She never thought she would be in the position that her current job has put her in – hiding under a desk while a gunman is shooting people all around her. Making out of that whole thing alive was nothing short of a miracle. A miracle by the name of Dillon Gray.
Dillon Gray took a huge risk ignoring his chief’s command and charged into the building to take down the gunman that was shooting innocent people. He just couldn’t wait and let more people die. By all accounts it seems that Ashley is the primary target and it’s his job to find out why, find the killer, and keep her safe in the meantime. Keeping his hands to himself may be even more of a challenge.
This book was provided to me by NetGalley.com in exchange for my honest review and I’m so happy it was. I love when I read a new author and immediately fall in love. Lena’s style of writing just draws you in and won’t let loose. I really, really hope to read more by this author.
I give Tennessee Takedown 4.5 Flaming Hearts
