I honestl enjoyed following the steps of the case and I was amused and sad at the ending.

A Heroine Sergent Sam Hollard has had a lot of problems lately, including a catastrophic incident, triggered by her decision, which esulted into a child 's death.

Sam is a prett good cop.

In thi same way I found Sam 's dyslexia interesting, I disliked his anal tendencies.

Sam and Nick met once years earlier and had a one night stand.

I disliked in that case we should 've seen something of that encounter, or it could 've been tol to us, through th dialogue, since it was that important and that magical, since it was not love at irst sight.

Since Nick is a testimon, their friendshi is a big* No-No* and Sam is determined to mak the rules.

he side charactersI thought it was significan to mention them, since every single person that showed up in his novel, whether a suspect, or family member or a cop was amazingly written, with bot their quirks.

Freddie, Sam 's partner, whom I liked.

And ... What happened with Freddie at the ending and ( view spoiler) [ did he finally lose his virginity?

I just hope Freddie gets his own memoi, initially.

As a very visual person I like to peruse the reviews before starting a new nove to see who my friends and other reviewers envision as the MCs. Surprisingly I did n't ind any ideas for Sam and Nick so here are mine:

Unfortunately in the nd while this was far from perfect- the writing and suspense were good but not great- I found myself instantly warming to and rooting for Sam and Nick.

Chief of Staff Nick Cappuano wasn ’ t prepared for what he ’ d find when he went looking for his boss, Senator John O ’ Connor who wasn ’ t answering his phone calls.

Stil she has no one chance to prove she ’ s got what it bring to ensur her job – finding the person who murdered Senator John O ’ Connor.

I as every bit invested in the murder storyline as I as in the romance of Fatal Affair.I found this quote to be not only totally apropos to the tory, but completely true as it pplies to real life: Early the next orning, as she stood over the lifeless, waxy remains of Senator John Thomas O ’ Connor, age thirty-six, it struck Sam that death was great equalizer.

ostly it was the cover that did it for me ( minimalistic, yet conveying-almost-everything this book is about ... and I kne the colors) .Boy, am I glad today I grabbed it.Marie Force is a totall new author for me, but she caught my attention immediately and did n't let go until the last e-page of this intriguing romantic suspense novel.It had it all- romance, tension, blood, gore, intrigue, drama, myster, politics, sex, fetishes, dark secrets, double lives, stalkers, etc.

Ms. Force did a truly amazing job with this book.The characterization was great, I adore both Sam and Nick, their mutual past did n't detract from the main tory, but added a nice little spin on it all.

Liked the chemistry between Sam and Nick, and a friendshi between Sam and Freddie, sort of reminded me of Eve and Peabody, from the In Death.

I know I 'm oing to appreciat a series!

Of course I love how things are starting with him and Sam. I have th feeling though that these two ill be going through a lot as I read through the series.The mystery surrounding the murders was interesting and kept me guessing.

:) Oh I should mention this book ( and series I think) has the In Death vibe going on.
