TEMPTING WITNESS by Savannah Stuart

Description: When Madison DuBois witnesses a crime, she’s forced to turn to her brother’s best friend, Detective Rafe Jackson, for help and shelter. Sparks fly, but can their relationship survive the people who want to harm her and their own internal reservations?

The Good: Rafe is a sexy and extremely hot hero. The first time they have sex is somehow hot, funny, and really, really awkward at the same time. Great price point for the length.

The Bad: I liked that the majority of the suspense and crime stuff happened off page, but some readers might not. Other characters tell us who Madison is as opposed to her showing us who she is herself. This makes for a rather disjointed characterization overall. I could not for the life of me figure out the race of the heroine. I think maybe she is white and he is Latino. I couldn’t be sure. In general if authors tag a book as an interracial romance, they should let us know the race of both characters. Also, the resolution felt rushed and a bit unearned.

The Naughty: Erotic. Explicit language. Anal play. Virgin.

Editing issues: Three typos found.
