Book Description

What do thrill-seeking women want?

A fantasy-fulfilling abduction...an exciting rescue by a scorching hot guy...with an unforgettable night of passion. So they go to www.takemetonite.com -- and then they die.

Someone has to stop it.

When Sage Valentine discovers that her roommate's shocking suicide might be related to a website that provides edgy, thrill-seeking entertainment, she immediately books her own "abduction" to get some answers. But her "rescuer" isn't really who she thinks he is....Johnny Christiano is dedicated to the Bullet Catchers, who saved him from a wise guy's life of crime and turned him into an elite bodyguard. When he's assigned to stop Sage's kidnapping, he's unexpectedly trapped between deceit and sizzling desire. But the closer Johnny and Sage get to the truth, the closer danger stalks them...until death is only a double-click away.

5.0 out of 5 stars This hero can take me anywhere 7 Mar. 2007
By Marilyn Puett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lucy Sharpe expects nothing less from her Bullet Catchers staff than skill, focus and to remain emotionally uninvolved with the client. Yet when Sage Valentine, Lucy's estranged niece, shows up at her office with a request for information about takemetonite dot com, a thrill-seeker's site for women, Lucy has trouble staying uninvolved, especially when Sage plans to arrange a fantasy abduction for herself. Sage isn't convinced her roommate committed suicide she's sure the dancer's death is related to the website. And her investigative reporter's nose for news won't let her be stopped until she learns the truth. Lucy assigns Johnny Christiano to intervene, 'rescue' Sage before she's even nabbed and then protect her and keep her from pulling any more fool stunts. But he must not let her know he's a bodyguard. Because Lucy rescued Johnny from the mob, he feels a deep sense of loyalty to her and will lie to Sage if necessary to keep her in the dark about who he really is. Johnny is easy on the eyes, good in bed and more than handy in the kitchen. At first it's easy to let Sage believe he's little more than a male prostitute. But as the stakes rise and the threat to Sage becomes more real, Johnny's caught between his loyalty to his rescuer and his growing attraction to Sage and genuine concern for her safety. TAKE ME TONIGHT is the third book in Roxanne St. Claire's Bullet Catcher series about an elite cadre of personal protection specialists. Its quick pacing and can't-put-it-down-til-you've-finished plot will give readers an exhilarating tale and a hero they won't soon forget. Johnny gives new meaning to the term 'Renaissance Man' and will have female readers everywhere begging, 'Take me tonight, Johnny. Please.' While Johnny can whip up a pasta recipe with little effort, author Roxanne St. Claire has come up with a recipe of her own -- a recipe for a winner: equal parts of thrills and suspense, a liberal dash of sensuality laced with pure lust and a pinch of laughter. Mix them thoroughly and pour between the covers of TAKE ME TONIGHT and your reading appetite will be more than whetted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique story with romance & mystery. A delicious hero who cooks in the kitchen & bedroom. Heroine was disappointing & annoying. 31 Oct. 2007
By Alyce In Wonderland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Bullet Catchers Series:

Kill Me Twice

Thrill Me to Death

Take Me Tonight

I'm hooked on this series. The heroes are always totally edible. The stories are enthralling. Roxanne St. Claire writes terrific mystery plots that keep you interested with plenty of twists. Some scenes are so intense you'll be literally holding your breath, while your adrenaline pumps through your body. Her outcomes are never easily predicted. I also love the fact that her hero characters tend to be muscle on the outside, but tender- hearted on the inside. When these guys fall in love, they are not afraid to let their woman know it. While drawing a gun with their right hand, they are holding their lover's hand with the left. "Johnny", the hero in "Take Me Tonight", fits that roll gorgeously. (And I do mean "gorgeous"! If you see his photo on Roxanne St. Clare's web site, it is the exact photo that is described of him in the midst of this story. Holy cow! HOT!!!!! Is it legal to look that good?!)

Sage Valentine is an investigative reporter. She now is desperately investigating the murder of her best friend. She approaches her Aunt Lucy, founder of the Bullet Catchers, for help with the case. Lucy turns her down. Bullet Catchers are bodyguards, not detectives. However, Lucy knows that her niece is bound to keep hunting for answers. To keep Sage safe, Lucy sends her most loyal Bullet Catcher undercover. Johnny Christiano is given the task of hiding his position with the BC's so that he can watch out for Sage. Sage thinks he is just a beautiful man who wants to be her boyfriend. Johnny finds himself truly wanting that more and more. He fears Sage will never forgive him when she learns that he has lied about his identity.

Sage's deceased friend, Keisha, was a cheerleader for Boston's NBA team, The Blizzard. Strange things are happening to Keisha's teammates. Some are disappearing, then showing up with memory loss. Others are being found dead. Keisha's death was pronounced a suicide. Sage doesn't believe it. To get the answers she seeks, Sage will dig into the twisted world that Keisha and her teammates are struggling to survive. Johnny can do nothing to convince Sage to stay out of danger. His only choice is to follow her in and help her find the answers, while keeping himself between Sage and those who would see her dead before she learns too much.

My only disappointment with this book was Sage's character. I admire a heroine who is brave and strong. However I'm always turned off when "brave" crosses over to "completely without common sense". Johnny would try to scope out dangerous situations, gun in hand, moving room to room in silence, telling Sage to wait until he is sure it is safe. Instead of seeing the sense in that, Sage would totally ignore him and walk right into the room loudly and unarmed. Is she bullet proof, suicidal, or just stupid? It really bothers me when women are written to be so brainless.
Worse, was the fact that Sage was extremely hypocritical. Part of Johnny's cover was pretending to work for a company where men would sleep with the clients. Over and over she referred to him as a "male prostitute". She had no respect for him because of the job. However, she believed that it was completely acceptable that she used sex to try to convince Johnny to give her answers for her investigation. She brings him to the brink of "completion", then stops cold and says she'll finish for him if he answers her questions. In my book, a prostitute is a prostitute... whether the fee is paid with money, favors, or answers.
Sage's character brought this 5- star story down to a 4 for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars fast-paced romantic suspense 7 April 2007
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Investigative reporter Sage Valentine asks her friend Lucy Sharpe of Bullet Catchers to help her learn what happened to her roommate Keisha Kingston. Lucy says the firm does not do investigations unless it relates to personal protection of a client, but gives Sage a thin folder filled with some data. Keisha apparently paid takemetonight.com to abduct her and rescue her in a role playing fantasy adventure. Whereas Lucy insists Keisha committed suicide, Sage believes somehow that thrill Internet site led to her murder. She plans to uncover the truth about this division of Fantasy Adventures software gaming company.

To do this Sage plans to register with takemetongiht.com so that she can be kidnapped. However, Lucy worries about her niece doing something foolish so she "hires" Bullet Catchers to protect Sage. Johnny Christiano pretends he is part of the rescue team to keep her safe. As they fall in love, Sage and Johnny team up to learn the truth about takemtonight.com and her late roommate.

This latest Bullet Catcher thriller is a fast-paced romantic suspense with the cautionary buyer beware warning when purchasing personal services over the Internet. The action never slows down once Johnny "rescues" Sage even when he cooks the sexiest tastiest repast in years. Fans of the series will appreciate TAKE ME TONIGHT as Roxanne St. Clair provides a faster then a speeding bullet tale.

3.0 out of 5 stars The suspense was great, but the romance only so-so. 6 Jan. 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you like romantic suspense novels then the Bullet Catchers series would be a great read for you, unfortunately this is not the best of the series. It fell a little bit short for me in the romance department.

Sage Valentine is troubled by the suicide of her roommate, and she doesn't believe her friend would do such a thing. She is a reporter and thinks that foul play caused by a fake male escort service is the reason for her roommate's murder. She goes to Lucy Sharpe, the head of the Bullet Catchers and her aunt to seek help, but Lucy refuses to give it to her based on her disbelief that the death was anything but suicide. Still she assigns one of her Bullet Catchers, Johnny Christiano to watch Sage in the event she does need to be guarded. Johnny pretends to be a male escort while watching out for Sage as they uncover more and more secrets to why her roommate was murdered.

As far as the suspense and the mystery elements of the novel, it was a great one. I couldn't put the book down because I wanted to uncover who the killer was. It kept me guessing until the very end and completely surprised me. The thing that failed for me was the romance element. There was just something about the two main characters that bothered me. The sexual chemistry was there, but the personalities of the hero and heroine were kind of annoying. Johnny constantly talking about his abilities in the kitchen was a turn off for me, everything seemed to go back to one of his Italian recipes. Sage seemed bitter for most of the novel and recklessly stupid. In the end I didn't really care if they got together but I really wanted to see them catch the bad guy. The book is okay, and a pretty good installment in the series, I just hope that the next one is better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Save your money 30 Mar. 2012
By A. Ketterhagen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this would be an interesting read, a girl who's investigating a kidnapping fantasy company that her roommate uncharacteristically signed up for, right before commiting suicide. Convinced she'd been murdered, the heroine wasn't going to stop investigating until she uncovered the truth. Enter our Hero. He's there to protect her; she thinks he's a rescuer from the fantasy company. He's holding firmly to his cover, while trying to figure out her story. The first quarter of the book was fine.

I don't like writing bad reviews, but I don't like finishing a book and immediately tossing it into the recycle bin either. Please save your money.

I don't mind contrived plots, in fact, as a lover of the romance genre, I kind of expect some contrived moments, and I don't mind there being characters who are basically caricatures of the type of person they represent. I'm a laid back reader who forgives a lot. That said, I do mind Ridiculously contrived plots, and Every character being a caricature.

Heroine - Sage - the intrepid reporter who won't stop at anything to get to the truth. With dogged determination, she's going to push every person she comes across, without any sense of healthy paranoia. She's not going to let caution or careful planning get in her way; in fact, the first chance she gets to ditch her protector, she'll do it because the truth is the only important thing, and whatever happens she's going to dive in head first because her name is Sage - named for wisdom - meaning she's smart enough to be the only one to figure out her roommate didn't kill herself, but too stupid to see all the other dangers smacking her in the face.

Hero - Johnny - once upon a time, almost the head of a major Italian crime family who hates who he was in the past so much that he's still conflicted when thinking about it, but wears his "Italian" like a blinking neon sign. He cooks like an Italian grandmother, making Italian dishes that are Magnifico, and can't have any kind of conversation that doesn't include Italian food or using Italian food like it's an experience. Did I bring up Italian a lot? Well, so does the author.

Villain #1 - psychotic controlling beotch riding her NBA dancer girls so ridiculously hard that it makes it hard to believe that her motivation for setting her girls up for awfullness was that she was desperate to be a mommy again herself.

Villain #2 - husband of villian 1, and I'm still not sure what he was all about. Maybe he was just there to be another villian to debate over. I couldn't tell if he was conflicted over the dancers not sleeping with him or if he was pining for a baby too, or maybe him writing Whore on the walls of the victims was his main reason for existing... to add to the... uhm.... suspense? It's hard to build suspense when you don't care about the caricatures, oops, I mean the characters.

Villain #3 - the obvious bad guy who's the pillar of the community. He's cracked in the head because he's not able to have kids. So he's figured out a way to kidnap ladies and steal their eggs, or just kill them if there's a chance his crazy might get exposed.

Yep, all of the Villains are nasty awful people hurting, terrorizing, and killing innocent people because they are missing the joy of children in their lives.

There are so many more examples I could give, but I've given too much time to this book already.

If you're wondering why I didn't call out Spoiler Alerts prior to my review, it's because if you don't read the book, then nothing's been spoiled. If you do read the book, you've only spoiled your precious spare time... and money. Please save your money.
