Book Description

Jasmine “Jazz” Parker, Jefferson County SWAT's only female sniper, can thread the eye of a needle with a bullet. But she carries a secret from her past that she thought she buried for good at the age of fifteen. Two years ago she even drove away the one man she believed she could love—ex-Army Ranger turned reporter Luke Montgomery—to keep her past hidden. Now, in a fleeting second, the time it takes for one clean shot, one perfect hit, to save the life of the governor's daughter, Jazz's world begins to crumble around her.

Luke splashes her face and name across the front page of the newspaper, reawakening her past with a vengeance. A vicious enemy is now bent on destroying her life, forcing Jazz to turn to the one man she can never have in order to stop a killer before she and everyone she cares about pays the ultimate price. Full of explosive action and almost unbearable suspense, In Her Sights is a relentless, steamy thriller surprisingly infused with soul and poignancy.



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Riflewoman Perini refreshes romantic suspense with an unusual protagonist: Jasmine “Jazz” Parker, lead sniper for the Jefferson County, Colo., sheriff’s SWAT team. Jazz lives by her mother’s dying advice never to let anyone into her own heart, so this Amazonian beauty holds back from the easy camaraderie of her team, just as two years earlier she halted a steamy romance with former army ranger and journalist Luke Montgomery. Jazz’s tightly held secrets make her the target of jealous rivals in the sheriff’s office, and a psychotic stalker from her excruciating childhood also makes an appearance. As she struggles to overcome these difficulties, she also battles her raging lust for super-sexy Luke. Perini convincingly ratchets up the pace of Jazz’s tribulations with high-tech armament and high-heat passion before the independent, no-nonsense heroine predictably signs on to be Luke’s partner, friend, lover, and wife." --Publishers Weekly

Review

"Debut author Robin Perini's first book, IN HER SIGHTS is a riveting, tightly-paced story about a female sharpshooter with a Colorado SWAT team who has a lot to prove and even more to hide. The romance was as hot as the suspense was gripping. I can't wait to see more from this amazing new author." - Sharon Sala, NYT Bestselling author

Robin Perini will keep you perched on the edge of your seat. Danger, excitement and romance...everything a reader craves!" - Brenda Novak, New York Times Bestselling Author

3.0 out of 5 stars A Jekyll and Hyde book with more Hyde than Jekyll December 19, 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book drove me crazy. Robin Perini's bio states she has won awards for writing romance books and teaches competitive small-bore rifle shooting. With all this in mind, her romantic writing skills were the pits! Here is a quote page 7 "He knew she loved her sex hot and her whiskey straight. He knew she couldn't stand cantaloupe or cauliflower, but was addicted to butter rum Life savers. He knew she liked her showers scorching, her kisses gentle and she purred in the middle of night when he splayed his hands along her hip and nuzzled her neck." I swear I broke out laughing and I thought I had a great comic novel on my hands. I couldn't read her sex scenes at all with a straight face, however when the sex turned rough the words became believeable. Go figure?

The action scenes were good and I liked her female sniper Jazz. For the most part Ms. Perini's use of guns was accurate, but..... I will come back to this later.
As for the mystery, well it was just okay. I kind of figured it out half way thorough the book.

Good points: the book is short and reads well. The idea of a female sniper was neat. The action was ok.
Bad points: writing of the love scenes is a hoot. The mystery is fair but not very interesting or new.

There are two things that really really got my goat. One was that Denver was such a hot bed of violent crime that it had two crimes within 24 hours that reguired swat. Next the idea that a professional sniper would not check her rifle before shooting some one was stupid. Plus this really big bone head mistake: at the end of the book Jazz is carrying a Beretta and Ms. Perini writes " Jazz pointted the .357n at Lisa." A Beretta is 9mm and .357 is a revolver bullet thatn can not be fired in an automatic. This from a rifle teacher.

So this is an okay book. If you love romance novels then this for you. If you lilke comedy this is for you. Other wise run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking Suspense! November 12, 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This was an amazing and very suspenseful story. I couldn't put it down! Luckily, I picked this up on a Friday evening because it was 1:30 AM before I hit the final page and let out a sigh of relief. This was an extremely fast-paced romantic suspense novel (with a very heavy emphasis on the suspense).

Jazz Parker has reinvented herself after a horrible childhood as the daughter of drunken prostitute who was beaten to death by one of her clients. This same client came back the next morning to beat and rape 10-year-old Jazz and she managed to kill him with the baseball bat that she was supposed to use to defend her mother. She is guilt-stricken because she was unable to protect her mother. After years bouncing around the foster care system, she finds herself fifteen and on the streets trying to survive. She is rescued by a friendly sheriff who she is very reluctant to trust because of her previous experience.

Jazz changes her name, has her juvenile record expunged, and starts a new life as a police officer herself. When the story begins she is the only female SWAT sniper for her county. She is part of the SWAT team but holds herself aloof from her colleagues because of real trust issues. She is under investigation by Internal Affairs in the person of the spoiled son of the County Sheriff who was beaten out for the SWAT team by her. He is out to get her and, since she hasn't tried to be part of the team, her teammates aren't on her side.

Enter Luke Montgomery. He is a former Army Ranger turned investigative reporter. He is also Jazz's former lover. She walked away when it looked like he was getting too close to her secrets. Luke is a very black and white sort of guy. He is determined to find and report the truth no matter who it hurts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't pull myself away from it... November 29, 2011
Format:Paperback
My Review:
This was a fabulous book and surprisingly, a first book by this new author. This book is about Jazz, Jasmine Parker, who is the lead sniper on a SWAT team. The book starts when she is 10 years old, so that as the reader, you know a bit about her history that she has worked diligently to hide and escape from her entire life.

Luke Montgomery is a man from her past. He is an investigative reporter and she left him when she realized that he could never forgive or get past a deception, knowing that she was hiding her entire history from him. But now he has been tasked with writing a series of articles about her and is digging.

The first story features her front and center on the first page after a shot that she took, saved the governor's young daughter. That first article puts her on someone's radar that knows her past and wants Jazz to pay.

It's been two years since Luke and Jazz have been involved, but the sparks are still there for both of them, but the closer Luke gets to Jazz, the more that he realizes that he never really knew her when they were involved two years ago. But as they become closer, the more that Jazz realizes she is putting Luke and all of his family, including his young daughter in danger. That is not an acceptable risk to her so she keeps pushing him away.

Jazz is a really complex character. She has learned methods for how to separate herself mentally from stress and emotion which serves her well as a sniper, but not so well in relationships. She's overcome a lot in her life to get where she is and through the book, she starts to see all that work crumble which is absolutely devastating for her.

On the other side is Luke.
