The Bullet Catcher Series:
Kill Me Twice
Thrill Me To Death
Take Me Tonight
Roxanne St. Claire has me hooked. Her hero characters, known as The Bullet Catchers, are incredible. Each has a unique personality, an interesting past, and a noble heart. None would hesitate to sacrifice himself for his client. These men are intelligent and powerful, yet still ordinary guys who make each other laugh with good- natured taunting.
St. Claire really hit a home run with "Thrill Me To Death". Her Bullet Catcher, Max Roper, has everything that makes a woman melt. Not only is he towering in size, he has a big heart as well. His friends and clients don't see it, because he hides behind a "tough guy" facade. His one true love left him 5 years ago, taking the laughter from his soul and the smile from his face.
Now Max has been assigned the job of protecting the very woman who turned his heart upside- down. His hardest task is keeping his feelings out of the picture. However when the two see each other, 5 years melt away as if they had never parted. Both are wary of rekindling their relationship, but their need for one another is undeniable. Max, known as "Mad Max" to his fellow Bullet Catchers, is brought to knees. He finds himself throwing caution to the wind, confessing to Cori that he accepted the assignment of protecting her because he never stopped loving her. Although Cori had pushed herself to move on by marrying a different man after their break- up, she admits to Max that she thought of him every single day.
Cori is caught in a web of lies. All of the people who matter in her life eventually become suspects in the murder of her late husband. That same murderer is now targeting Cori. After losing both her father and Max 5 years ago, Cori clings to every friend she has. She can't believe that any of them could be a killer. Max must keep her close to guard her life as he works to solve the mystery. The thought of losing her again is unbearable.
I never wanted to put this book down. Not only were the characters and the love story great, but the mystery was excellent as well. St. Claire kept me guessing. It has been a very long time since I read a crime story that was not predictable. Every time I thought I had figured out who the murderer was, she threw in twists that changed my mind. I was enthralled with this tale. I can't wait to read the next in the series!
