Book Review- Fatal Chaos by Marie Force

Sam and Nick are back and this time, their lives might end up changed forever....

My Rating for Fatal Chaos: 5 Stars and a Recommended Read

For Metro Police Lieutenant Sam Holland, escaping the heat and humidity of DC was the smartest move ever made. She got to enjoy family time with her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano and her family and friends at the beach even if romantic beach walks are not so romantic with secret service around them. No sooner back from vacation, Sam is thrust in a case that puts the whole city on edge. Fatal drive by shootings keep Sam and her homicide department working around the clock trying to stop these criminals but the clock is ticking. With the fallout continuing over the president’s son’s activities that targeted Sam, Nick and their families, will Sam and Nick find their lives changed and possibly have Sam’s career end.? Can the greatest challenge Nick has ever faced in politics with the mounting pressure destroy the bond they worked so hard to build together or deepen it?

FATAL CHAOS continues the aftermath of Fatal Threat and delivers a pulse pounding story from start to finish. With the right amount of tension, mystery and romance, Ms. Force delivers a powerhouse of a story that will leave you breathless. As this is the thirteenth book in the series, I highly recommend you read this series in order as each book capitalizes on the next and the characters mention past events that you may not know about or are confused about if you start mid-way. FATAL CHAOS takes us to the beach where Sam and Nick as well as their immediate families are enjoying some major downtime together after the threat they had to deal with in Fatal Threat. With characters that just blow you away to scenes of intense emotions, you find yourself on the edge of your seat along side Sam and Nick as they navigate this new threat to their home and relationship.

What I love about the Fatal series books are the characters. Samantha Holland is a kick ass take no prisoners cop and is determined to do her job to the best of her ability. Granted sometimes those abilities get her in the ER where her husband freaks out over another bruise or stitches but its part of her job as a police officer. Granted she is the second lady of the United States which also is part of her world. I love how Ms. Force has Sam not quite the perfect political wife. She has no desire to give up her career, a career she worked her ass off for and it takes a special kind of person to accept that about her. Nick is her perfect counterpart in every way. These two take my breath away and I love how in synch they can be in especially when it comes to their son Scotty. With each book, the reader falls for this couple and cast of characters more deeply. I absolutely adore the secondary cast of characters Ms. Force has created. From FBI agent Avery Quinn to their helper/assistant Shelby who just loves pink. Sam’s interactions with everyone-good guys and bad- keep me in stitches one minute, rooting for her to take down the bad guy the next. Each time I crack open one of these books, I find myself falling back under the spell of Ms. Force and loving every minute of it. Every character, be it main characters, secondary or the bad guys, are all well written, multidimensional and keep the reader glued to the pages till the very end of the book. Its rare for me to reread a series repeatedly unless they are one of my absolute favorites and the Fatal series is one I do a reread of periodically.

FATAL CHAOS is one hell of a ride and leaves the reader guessing right till the climatic ending. With some scenes where Sam is teasing her partner Freddie over what she is planning for his bachelor party (Dwarf strippers anyone??!!) to her determination to finding the bad guys and stopping the killing going on in her city, Ms. Force delivers a powerhouse of a story that will leave you gasping for more. Now the only complaint I have is I need more and luckily November is coming soon for the next book. I highly recommend this series for anyone who enjoys a JD Robb In Death book, House of Cards TV show and more because once you start this series, you won’t want to put it down.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement
