Fatal Affair - Marie Force

Title:  Fatal Affair
Author:  Marie Force
Publisher:  Carina Press
Published:  June 21, 2010
Pages:  406 (eBook)
Genre:  Romantic Suspense
Series:  Fatal Series - Book #1

This book has it all...suspense and intrigue, sizzling passion, witty dialogue, and great characters. I was so excited when Marie Force contacted me and asked me to read and review her book. I love her writing and really enjoyed the other two books I've read of hers...Line of Scrimmage and Love at First Flight. She has a way of telling a story that grabs a hold of you, draws you into the story, and doesn't let go until the last page is read. Her characters are real, and their emotions run deep.

When Nick Cappuano walks in and finds his boss, Senator O'Connor, murdered in his bed, her never dreams that he will come into contact with the woman that he had a one night stand with six years earlier. Detective Samantha Holland needs to solve this case in order to restore her stellar career after a disastrous stand-off ending in a child being killed. What she doesn't need is the distraction of Nick...and what a distraction he is to her body, heart, and mind. After the bodies begin stacking up, Nick and Sam race against time to find the killer, as well as try to figure out what to do about the intense attraction they have for one another.

Nick's past is a painful one...yet he doesn't shut himself off from experiencing all he can with Sam. He is devoted to his best friend, Senator O'Connor, and is determined to find out who killed him. He is a bit OCD, and his dedication to his work, friends, and Sam is unwavering. He makes the perfect hero.

Sam has her troubles too. Her self-confidence is shaken in the aftermath of a child being killed on her watch. She has personal problems that she doesn't let overshadow her determination. She is devoted to her family, and has a strong personality and work ethic. She is the perfect match for Nick. I also love the banter between Sam and her partner.

One thing to note about this book...it is only available in eBook format. However, if you have been wanting to try this format...Fatal Affair is a fantastic one to read.
