HASH(0x928defb4) out of 5 stars Romantic Suspense at its Best 19 Sept. 2005
By Marilyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alex Romero fears his days at the elite Bullet Catchers agency may be numbered after the fiasco surrounding his last case. But his boss offers him another chance and he's off to Miami to protect Jessica Adams, a high-profile newscaster who apparently is being stalked by an overzealous fan. However when he breaks into her apartment to scare her and show her how much she needs his help, he discovered he's scared the wrong Miss Adams. In his presence is Jasmine Adams, Jessica's twin sister who has come to Miami to impersonate her twin while Jessica goes undercover for an important investigation. Soon Jazz realizes that her sister is missing and fears she may be dead. She and Alex become reluctant partners in an investigation that leads them into the underbelly of Miami and puts them both in danger.

KILL ME TWICE is easily the best romantic suspense that this author has written. It's filled with sexy dialogue, intriguing characters, red herrings galore and enough sizzling sexual tension to light up Las Vegas. The plot is superb and will keep the reader guessing til the villain is revealed.

This is the first of a series of Bullet Catcher books. Next up is THRILL ME TO DEATH, Max Roper's story, in 2006.

HASH(0x92b7a804) out of 5 stars First in the Bullet Catcher series 1 Oct. 2006
By A. Rowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alex Romero is given one assignment- to keep Jessica Adams safe, and stay out of her bed. What Alex didn't expect was her twin sister to be the one pretending to be Jessica. Jazz Adams is nothing like her sister the newscaster. She has spunk, and an overly eager sense of determination to find her missing sister, but who can she trust? Before Jessica disappeared, she asked Jazz to pretend to be her and to tell no one who she was. With only Alex on her side, the two must unravel the clues to find Jessica before it is too late.

As my first Roxanne St. Claire novel, it was a fairly decent read. The suspense held throughout the story line. I noticed how so many people mentioned the many twists and turns, I however, did not think they were as cleverly done. Maybe it is just that I read at least a book a day if not two with a good majority being mysteries, but it was a bit predictable to me. Maybe that's because there just weren't enough red herrings to really make the twist a shocker. Even with the predictability on my part though, it was a good romantic suspense. I look forward to reading the next in the bullet catcher series.

Is it worth buying?

Yes, I do feel most people will enjoy this book.

HASH(0x928e6d44) out of 5 stars Waiting for the next Bullet Catcher!!! 18 Oct. 2005
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alex Romero is the Bullet Catcher's official ladies man. Skilled at his job, the gorgeous bodyguard's biggest challenge is fighting off women. His last assignment has placed him on professional probation. The amorous attentions of the client's wife were frowned upon by her husband and his boss. Now he has the chance to redeem himself. Protect a news anchor and no hanky panky!

Jasmine 'Jazz' Adams, PI, is determined to help her sister and catch the creep stalking her twin. When a certain sexy bodyguard insists on taking charge, she resists. But when the danger to her sister escalates, Jazz turns to Alex for help. Combining their skills, the two work together against the growing threat. As their desire for each other builds, so does the danger.

What a great book! Jazz is a strong-willed heroine. Gorgeous, smart and very, very sassy! A perfect match for Alex. He needs someone to stand up to his domineering ways. But don't get me wrong, Alex is divine. He's handsome, honorable, confident and has a to-die-for sexy accent! I can still "hear" him whispering erotic Spanish love words. The tension and passion between these two is amazing!

Kill Me Twice is a riveting thriller! Well-written with a plot full of suspense, I never saw the ending coming. Ms. St. Claire has created a dynamic, action-packed mystery and has successfully woven in a sensual love story. I am hooked! I love The Bullet Catchers and am anxious for the next installment!

HASH(0x92a2451c) out of 5 stars Not bad but disappointing 26 Feb. 2010
By A Book a Day - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this series based on all the rave reviews and am a big fan of romantic suspense, so after only reading half of it, I went back to reread the reviews wondering how I could have purchased an entire series if it was only a soso rating. Well, this is one time I can't trust all the five star ratings. Having said that it was a decent fast read. I found myself flying through the second half because I just wasn't emotionally invested in it, however it still held entertainment value. There were too many things that were cliched, typical, and sometimes nonsensical. The heroine, Jasmine Adams, is described as georgeous and intelligent with the body of a centerfold and has a photographic memory to boot. She's come into Miami to cover for her twin sister when her sister needs to go undercover to scoop a story. When she gets there, her sister has disappeared and all signs lead to her being in trouble, but "Jazz" ignores these signs and covers for her so no one realizes she's missing. With that photographic memory of hers and a background as a Private Investigator, she doesn't remember simple things like names, faces, or other details. It was actually quite annoying. Luckily for her, waiting to guard over her is a hired bodyguard, Alex Romero, who was sent to watch over her sister, but instead watches over her since her sister is missing. Alex is a bullet catcher, an elite group who are hired only by the rich and famous to protect, defend, investigate, etc.... It's lead by an ex CIA operative Lucy, also gorgeous and intelligent.

Throughout the story, Alex essentially babysits for Jazz while she bulldozes her way into figuring out where her sister is, but only at the half way point does she start to believe her sister may actually be in trouble. There are lots of red herrings and people introduced who could be the bad guy to keep up the mystery and subplot over subplot for an element of surprise towards the end, but in a way, you just don't really care that much.

I also didn't really buy into the chemistry between Alex and Jazz. There's some sexy scenes between them, but I couldn't really see him falling for her. She's brave and brash, but annoying to the core and doesn't listen to anything including her own intuition. Some things are contradictory, like Alex telling Jazz not to leave the room with this guy Ollie who they're not sure they can trust. Her intuition says she can trust Ollie so she leaves the room with him and halfway to their destination she starts second guessing herself and pulls out her gun just in case. So, prudence is wise, but if you're not sure and you need a gun, why leave with him in the first place? It's alot of stupid moves like that which simply didn't impress me. If you're smart, then do smart things. If you have a photographic memory, then remember things. Also, when I got to the end, quite frankly, I wouldn't hire the bullet catchers to do traffic control, nevermind save my life. The way it all goes down does not instill confidence at all.

So why did it even get three stars from me? Well, it wasn't bad, just confusing. The writing includes alot of dialogue which I prefer to flowery descriptions of scenery and mundane things like three page descriptions of someone's outfit. The only draw back to this was that I sometimes couldn't tell who was saying what and very likely could have chalked it up to typos. There were quite a few, but overall it was still entertaining and I did like Alex the hero. Being the first in the series and seeing as how I have all of them, I won't give up yet. I liked the other bullet catchers introduced in this book and hope that there's more attention to consistency.

HASH(0x928d44bc) out of 5 stars A Read With Plenty of Twists!!! 10 Oct. 2005
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Kill Me Twice is a roller coaster ride that will take the reader from a simple body guard protection situation to, the kidnapping of a twin and the connection to the underbelly of the adult movie industry. Dynamic characters pepper the pages and I dare you not to fall a little bit in love with Alex Romero, a true dark, handsome, and protective hero.

Jasmine "Jazz" Adams has a twin that is investigating a story that requires her (Jazz) to pretend that she is her sister Jessica. The reason behind the twin switch... so no one at the news station knows that anything is wrong. Jessica wants to be on a network, and this story might just be her ticket to the big time. Well, Jazz has no idea that her sister has been receiving threatening letters and e-mail, and she also has no idea that her new boss has hired a bodyguard to protect her. Imagine her surprise when she goes to her sister condo and is jumped right at the door by said protector!

Things are about to get a lot scarier though when things don't start adding up regarding her sister's disappearance. Instead of phone calls, she gets text messages, it looks as if her sister comes home but leaves no notes. This is not like Jessica and Jazz starts to worry. If this is not enough, she has to deal with the sexy Alex. He is causing a whole of emotional upheaval for her but at the same time he's keeping a distance between them that she doesn't understand. Is this mess going to turn out all right?

Alex has been told that he has to keep his principle safe and he can't touch her. Not a problem until he gets a good look at her. Than he finds out that Jess is actually Jazz and the one person he must keep safe is MIA. The search for Jess though leads to places that they can't even believe. It appears that she has participated in an adult video, but Jazz swears that her sister would never do that. The new boss seems to have deep feelings for Jess, but Jazz swears that she would never sleep to get to the top. Things are not adding up and the longer she's missing the more trouble it means. Will he be able to keep the girl safe and his heart as well?

This was a very fast read. I literally stayed up all night to read it! There were plenty of twists and turns and Jazz and Alex were a perfect combination, which made reading their romance a pleasure. The conclusion was drawn nicely and I even managed to squeeze out a tear or ten they're at the end. (No, this doesn't give anything away...trust me) I highly recommend Ms. St. Claire and I look forward to getting a hold of her next read!
