There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I truly fell into this book from page one, and enjoyed the ride to the last page. By this I mean that there were no discernable 'yawns' for me as I never got bored reading it. There were no editable distractions either, which for me, was a nice plus. There were also enough twists and false leads to keep me quessing, and I never once found myself thinking about the way the book was written, or how believable or otherwise the plot or characters were.
In short, I loved it.
What I didn't like? Nothing, there was nothing of this book that I didn't enjoy.
The best bit about this book? It left a smile on my face.

I'm always excited when I find a new author to add to my home library. Roxanne St. Claire can really tell a story. Her descriptions of the locations in the tale are vivid without being too wordy. Her characters are well developed and realistic. There is plenty of mystery and lots of fast- paced scenes to keep you turning the pages.
Alex has been assigned the duty of guarding a well- known news reporter. As a body guard among an elite team known as the 'Bullet Catchers', he takes his job seriously. When he arrives to take on his assigned task, he is surprised to find that his client has been replaced by her twin sister.
Jazz and her twin, Jess, are as different as night and day. While Jess is busy building her career as a famous anchorwoman, Jazz prefers risking her life as a private investigator. When Jess wants to take a week off at the news station to research a ground- breaking story, Jazz agrees to pretend she is her sister on the evening news. When Jazz arrives at her sister's apartment she is shocked to learn that she has a new body guard. The last thing Jazz wants or needs is a man following her around.
Over the following days, Alex and Jazz learn that Jess is in trouble. Until she is found, Alex has been reassigned to guarding Jazz in her sister's place. Jazz wants to follow every dangerous lead to her sister's whereabouts. Alex is determined to keep her from running straight into a trap. They make a pact to work together until Jess is saved. Their biggest challenge becomes fighting their attraction for one another so they can concentrate on saving Jess.
This book is a real page- turner. The only thing that made it a bit less enjoyable for me was the fact that Jazz's character was quite cold. She is jaded from a past relationship and will not bend when Alex tries to keep her safe. He compromises again and again in their search for Jess, but she insists upon doing everything her way... even to the point of taking unreasonable risks. She constantly disappears without warning, leaving Alex to frantically search for her. When their relationship progresses to "the next level", Jazz tells him that she only wants him for sex. It got to a point where I really could not like Jazz. I was wishing Alex had a woman with a bit more heart. Still, the story is definitely worth all 5 stars.

More Roxanne St. Claire favorites:
If you enjoy romantic tales between protective men and modern women, try these:
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.
