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.

My Thoughts and Review
High Paced - Super Intense
I love books with strong female leads and I love books even more when the strong female lead is in a powerful position like in this case a detective.

Samantha "Sam" Holland is a detective investigating the horrific murder of a very popular US Senator. A major witness to the case Nick a man she had a one night stand with over 6 years ago found the body of the senator. Sam has had so real trials in her life since then from a bad marriage, her father (once the chief of police) being injured on the duty and permanently paralized, a high profile case she was on turned bad and now the murder of a US Senator. She doesnt need this man to come back into her life but he does and at full force.

The plot of the book, the lay out all of it is excellent. I love when I can start a book and immediately be drawn into the story, into the lives of the characters and feel like I am right there, like one of them. You can't wait for the next page, the next clue to try and find out who murdered the Senator and let me just say I was completely shocked in the outcome - who really murdered the senator.

Fixing to get the next book in the series. Great Job Marie Force....

The world of ghosts and spirits is nothing new to eighteen year old Anora Benson; she’s spent her whole life trying to ignore them, trying to be normal. But when the Pricolici, a group of ancient bounty hunters, are sent after her, Anora realizes she is more than just a medium.

As a witch she has power, power she doesn’t know how to use, power that makes her vulnerable to the demons that desire her gifts. Anora is alone and scared, forced to face the darkness on her own. Then she meets Ethan, a mysterious boy who shows up in her life right along with the magic, and he seems to know quite a bit about her and her legacy Coven. Will she risk everything by trusting him or risk fighting alone?

My Thoughts and Review

Excellent Read Strong Female Lead

First let me start with at time the book seemed a bit disjointed but that aside it really is a very good paranormal witch book. I loved the main character Anora the writer did a good job with her character making her very believable. For the most part your average teen who feels like a freak because she's different and doesn't fully understand why. That is until her aunt she barely knew,but who always sent strange gifts, passes away. Then her whole life changes.

The author does a good job with her twin brother Harrison, jock and a bit of a bad boy. Her best friend Laney who sticks by her friends side even when her own life is on the line. Marie the jealous friend. Mike the jerk EX boyfriend - scumbag extraordaire and Ethan part of a secret order who becomes the love of Anoras life. Great male lead.

This really is a good book and I've already downloaded book 2 Reaper to read.
