The Quantum Series
“I actually think the Quantum books might be tied (no pun) with Fifty Shades and Crossfire for being some of the hottest series I’ve read!

“I’m highly anticipating the next book in the Quantum Trilogy. I want to know what happens.”—four star review of VIRTUOUS by Night Owl Erotica
“This is an erotic romance but I loved that the story did not revolve around the sex. The heart of the story was them and the sex complimented the story, but it was not the center of it. Every scene drove the story forward and was (in some way) character building. THIS is how a strong erotic romance should be!” and “This book just had everything I love it in. It had amazing writing, a gripping story, characters I fell in love with and respected, and a romance that made my heart melt.”—5 star review of VIRTUOUS from Aestas Book Blog

TREADING WATER, “shines the light on the good and the bad in life and proves that one moment can change everything and it’s never too late to find love.”—A recommended read from Joyfully Reviewed
“Treading Water is a definite must read! Treading Water creates an emotional firestorm within the reader. It shines the light on the good and the bad in life and proves that one moment can change everything and it’s never too late to find love. Marie Force grabbed my heart and squeezed every ounce of emotion out of it but most importantly her monumental story left me blissful.

I cannot wait for the next book in this trilogy, Marking Time.” —Joyfully Reviewed, a “Recommended Read” for November! Read the full review.
“(TREADING WATER) isn’t your typical romance where you’re positive you’re going to get the happy ending you were hoping for at the beginning. It will rip your heart out at times and having you weeping for joy at others. A stunning story about learning to love again and learning when to let go to those you love.” —Night Owl Reviews, Reviewer Top Pick

“I loved this new addition in Marie Force’s Green Mountain Series. “AND I LOVE HER” is the fouth book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. I recommend the entire series though. “And I Love Her” captured and held my attention from start to finish. It’s a fun and sexy love story that is well written with characters I loved. Because Hunter is the oldest of his 10 siblings he’s use to taking care of everyone. When Megan’s life was falling apart he showed up when she needed him. I loved them together. Their chemistry was off the charts and their love scenes burned up the pages. I highly recommend this book for romance lovers looking for a great love story!

You are struggling inside as to which man you really want her to be with. Book Lover, 4.5 Stars for LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT
“I read this book in less than a twenty-four hour period. I can’t remember the last time a story held me as mesmerized as LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT; I couldn’t get enough and wanted more… It’s a great story that knits together friendship and new-found love around bitter and sweet emotions, fear and sacrifice, and heartache and joy. Ms. Force pens so much more than a simple romance, her voice has that “certain something” which captivates the reader from first word to the last. She creates a story and characters the reader can embrace and cheer on whole-heartedly with a smile and a lump in the throat.” —Once Upon A Romance

Emotions are strong and written with such clarity that you feel them inside as if they were your own. —World According to Books on LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT
“This isn’t just a romance novel or a legal story or any other classification but a mixture of many that cannot be separated. It’s a fantastic mix of romance against a legal story with danger lurking around every corner. There are high-speed car rides as well as romantic dinners with walks along the beach. An assassin comes into play as well as a teenage witness. It’s a book that should interest a broad spectrum of readers.” Night Owl Reviews on LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT, Rating: 4.75 out of 5 – Reviewer Top Pick
“LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT by Marie Force is most definitely a keeper. It is an astounding book. I loved every single word!” Wild on Books Gives Love at First Flight 4.5 Bookmarks!
“Marie Force really has a knack for getting the reader emotionally involved with her characters. I felt the same way when I read Line of Scrimmage and Love at First Flight is no exception. I have to give kudos to her for writing such an unconventional romance so well. The fact that she could engage my emotions throughout the whole book really is a testament to her skillfulness of storytelling.” —Book Binge on LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT
“What I really liked about these two characters is the way they take care of each other. There is an art to that, to doing small things for each other without thinking, with pleasure even, because you know the other will appreciate it. Julianna is a nurturing person, with everyone around her, and that’s just what Michael needs. For his part, Michael offers Julianna a helping hand when she needs it, and some space to be an adult, even when he would prefer to get closer.” —AlphaHero on LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT.

“I whole heartedly recommend LINE OF SCRIMMAGE as the perfect football season book by an up and coming new author. Keep your eye on Marie Force!” —Five Stars from Single Titles
“Marie’s debut novel is wonderful! I was captured on the first page, and her characters are bigger than life. The emotional tug-of-war between two people who loved deeply but lost, takes you to the core in matters of the heart. Marie does a marvelous job leading you to the edge, and back again. So buckle up for a fun ride!” Read the full review of LINE OF SCRIMMAGE at Magical Musings.
“LINE OF SCRIMMAGE by Marie Force is not only a fantastic read for the romance fan but also for the female sports fan. I found this story ripe with emotion, steadfast with passion and downright endearing. Ladies hold onto your hats cause this Line of Scrimmage is full of secret game plays. As the story plays out Ryan and Susannah go on a roller coaster ride of blackmail, love and anger, tears and laughter, trust and distrust, pain and sorrow, danger, unbelievable patience and devotion to bring them into a state of questioning possibilities. Our author has given us an insightful look into true love, passion and undying devotion. She has given us a wonderful back story of team playing with football as it basis. I truly found it uncanny that the story back line is so close to my own beloved New England Patriots and the accomplishments that come with hard work and even harder struggles. Our characters are totally believable in every situation thrown to them and the intensity of the story grabs us on page one and carries us to the very last page without a blink of the eye. A must read that will not disappoint even the most finicky romance reader.” —Yankee Romance Reviewers. Read the full review.
