Next up on our sexy summer read series is the romantic suspense novel, Fatal Affair.
Fatal Affair is the first book in the Fatal Series by Marie Force. In the first book of the series, we meet Samanatha Holland and Nick Cappuano. Sam is a detective sergeant with the Washington DC Metro Police and Nick Cappuano is the friend and chief of staff of Senator John O'Connor who was found murdered in his home. Sam and Nick are required to work together to find out who murdered the Senator and why.
This is only made more complicated because six years earlier Sam and Nick had a memorable one-night stand, and they discover during this investigation that they are clearly still attracted to each other.
The storyline of Fatal Affair begins immediately on the first page, capturing the reader's attention and interest right away. I felt that the story was easy to follow, and I loved the witty banter between Nick and Sam. I would have actually liked a bit more tension between Nick and Sam to keep their relationship interesting. I'm a fan of the will-they-wont-they-but-we-know-they-totally-will-eventually plot line. Maybe that's something that will come later in the series!
Overall I enjoyed reading Fatal Affair. It's the perfect book to read in bed with a glass of red wine after you've finished watching an episode of Scandal or House of Cards.
Since Fatal Affair is the first book in the series, it also includes the bonus novella, One Night With You, which describes how Nick and Sam first met six years earlier and what happened the night they spent together.
Fans of J. D. Robb's In Death books will love trying out the Fatal Series. I know I will pass my copy along to my sister because I'm certain she'll really enjoy it.
While Fatal Affair is the first book in a series, it can absolutely be read as a standalone.
