Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
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!

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.
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!
