Review: Dead by Jade C. Jamison

{Book:} Dead (A Nicki Sosebee Novel)
{Author:} Jade C. Jamison
{Copyright:} 2011 Jade C. Jamison
{Pages:}  165 (99 on my Nook Color)
{Description from Amazon:} Nicki’s love life might suck, but her sex life is great. The only way both could be spectacular would be if her best friend Sean would look at her as more than just a friend. Nicki knows she’s stuck in the friend zone, so she focuses her energies on her job. She’s becoming a better reporter every day, so when her editor asks her to interview a local politician, Nicki is thrilled. But when the politician’s secretary ends up dead, it’s anybody’s guess as to who did it. Nicki has a few ideas, though, and finds herself in deep trouble as she pokes her nose where she thinks it belongs.

Nicki Sosebee is a strong woman who's not afraid to go after what she wants, whether it's a man or a story. She's tough and her mouth shows it. She's a free spirit and feels no need to apologize for who she is or what she believes in. DEAD is #2 in the Nicki Sosebee series.

{Alesha's Thoughts:}
So I went about this wrong and totally read the books out of order. I own "Got the Life" but being new to the series didn't realize this was the second book of the Nicki Sosebee series. So expect a review of that soon enough!

In lieu of this book though, incredible! It's got mystery, it's got sex, it's got love-somewhat. I guess what can turn into love for Nicki.

A short description of the book from me would be that it's about a girl named Nicki Sosebee who works for The Tribune. She's an upcoming reporter who is madly crushing on her long-time friend, few-time lover-ish, Sean She take a story about a Commissioner running for a Senate seat and ends up getting involved with a murder case, damn near becoming a victim herself. With the help of her new crush, Jesse (Sean's best friend), she escapes the grips of death and brings justice.

" Jesse looked serious, more serious than she'd ever seen him. He had a small smile that looked almost innocent. "That's a really sweet thing to say." Nicki explored his eyes and took just two steps, and those steps placed her right in front of him. Her gaze dropped from his eyes to his lips, and she placed her hands on either side of his face, her palms against his cheeks, and she kissed him. He parted his lips as his hands held her at the waste."

It's a thrilling book and though not very long, it kept me glued to the screen. Pages flew by as I became engrossed in this wonderful work of art! It's a definite must read!
