Fatal Affair: The Fatal Series #1 by Marie Force
Amazon book description:
Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career--and her confidence--after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O'Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O'Connor's friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can't afford--especially when the bodies keep piling up.
Last summer I read book 2 and fell in love with Sam and Nick (and so many other characters) and I have been waiting to return to their story and start at the beginning. I am thrilled to say that I finally have time - okay, that's a bit of a lie, I am MAKING time - to read the entire Marie Force Fatal series.
This is one of those love stories that you read and sigh, you know the ones...destiny, true love. But it is also filled with family, emotional turmoil, suspense, action, desire, betrayal, and mystery.
Marie Force has jump started this series with fantastic characters that have been thoughtfully created into people you want to know and set them into a world you could see yourself as a part of.
She crafts an excellent, suspenseful plot that keeps you turning the pages and changing your mind about the "bad guy"until the end.
I couldn't put it down - loved it- will be reading book 3 as soon as I finish this post (read book 2 already!).
