She looked into the dead face of the man she'd dined with the night before...
Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up - but it's also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flash bulbs.
The pressure is on for Sam to find Sinclair's killer, but a new lead in her father's unsolved shooting puts her in unexpected danger. When long-buried secrets threaten to derail her relationship with Nick, Sam realizes that, while justice can be blind, mixing romance with politics has the potential to be fatal.

I am a long time audio book listener. This is my first review. I am very impressed. It is easy to love the two main characters. There is a wonderful story, a family you can believe, "family values" that are real and have been tested. There is love, romance and some wonderful sex. It is a full service story. Marie Force seems to be a relatively new author and I predict we will see a lot of her soon.
I hope she keeps Sam and Nick around for a very long time. I am hooked.
Read them in order.
Possibly. I liked the whole series.
Probably not. She reads okay, but I didn't like her voice. It doesn't match the character. The narrators from the other books in the series were much for fitting for Sam.
It would have been , if the voice didn't bug me.
I read so I can write
This book is good but it isn't on the same level of amazing as the first one. The continued development of the primary characters in the series works, but story doesn't have the great mystery of the first. It is still definitely worth the credit and the listen.
An excellent follow-up to "Fatal Affair". The relationship between Samantha and Nick heats up as Sam investigates the murder of a Supreme Court nominee.
I thought I was downloading a mystery not something with sex scenes, christian guilt by a 29 year old losing his virginity with angst over abortion to where the murder seems secondary to the emotions of the primary characters. If I had wanted emotional breakdowns and inability to commit to romantic relationships I'd have bought a romance.
way too much sex and romance . I did not make it past the 5th chapter ,there was little to no substance just sex. if you like soft porn then this is the book for you . for me it was a wasted credit.
Another good plot that just fell in place and kept me in suspense, I just couldn't put the book down until I had finished it If you don't have the series, they are well worth the credit's. I only have the last two to go., you will not be dissapointed in any of the book's.,
This book had a little bit of everything. It wasn't a bad book but I don't know if I'll read it again. The story itself was pretty good & some of the characters were CRAZY!!! :)
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I loved Fatal Affair and was looking forward to revisiting all of the characters we met the first time around. I'm happy to say that I liked this installment even more than the first one. Watching Sam and Nick start to settle into their relationship was entertaining and emotional. I thought the conflicts between them were completely realistic given the inherent demands of their jobs and that they handled them in an adult manner. I love that even though Nick is now a US Senator, Sam's job is just as demanding and just as important. I also loved that the secondary characters were given lots of "screen time" in this book. Freddie is a great character that I can't help but root for and the more readers get to know Sam's dad, the more they will hope the mystery over his shooting will be solved at some point. There's definitely food for several more books here and I'll be looking forward to listening to Fatal Consequences next.
I was disappointed in this book. I bought it to get a murder mystery, but this book contained way too many very explicit sex scenes. It was as if the author was trying to make it a murder mystery and romance novel combined, which just didn't work for me. The storyline was nothing great, as I usually like surprise endings, or twists and turns in a story, neither of which was contained in this book. Not sure if I will read any more of this authors books.
