Thrill Me to Death
Take Me Tonight
I'm hooked on this series. The heroes are always totally edible. The stories are enthralling. Roxanne St. Claire writes terrific mystery plots that keep you interested with plenty of twists. Some scenes are so intense you'll be literally holding your breath, while your adrenaline pumps through your body. Her outcomes are never easily predicted. I also love the fact that her hero characters tend to be muscle on the outside, but tender- hearted on the inside. When these guys fall in love, they are not afraid to let their woman know it. While drawing a gun with their right hand, they are holding their lover's hand with the left. "Johnny", the hero in "Take Me Tonight", fits that roll gorgeously. (And I do mean "gorgeous"! If you see his photo on Roxanne St. Clare's web site, it is the exact photo that is described of him in the midst of this story. Holy cow! HOT!!!!! Is it legal to look that good?!)
Sage Valentine is an investigative reporter. She now is desperately investigating the murder of her best friend. She approaches her Aunt Lucy, founder of the Bullet Catchers, for help with the case. Lucy turns her down. Bullet Catchers are bodyguards, not detectives. However, Lucy knows that her niece is bound to keep hunting for answers. To keep Sage safe, Lucy sends her most loyal Bullet Catcher undercover. Johnny Christiano is given the task of hiding his position with the BC's so that he can watch out for Sage. Sage thinks he is just a beautiful man who wants to be her boyfriend. Johnny finds himself truly wanting that more and more. He fears Sage will never forgive him when she learns that he has lied about his identity.
Sage's deceased friend, Keisha, was a cheerleader for Boston's NBA team, The Blizzard. Strange things are happening to Keisha's teammates. Some are disappearing, then showing up with memory loss. Others are being found dead. Keisha's death was pronounced a suicide. Sage doesn't believe it. To get the answers she seeks, Sage will dig into the twisted world that Keisha and her teammates are struggling to survive. Johnny can do nothing to convince Sage to stay out of danger. His only choice is to follow her in and help her find the answers, while keeping himself between Sage and those who would see her dead before she learns too much.
My only disappointment with this book was Sage's character. I admire a heroine who is brave and strong. However I'm always turned off when "brave" crosses over to "completely without common sense". Johnny would try to scope out dangerous situations, gun in hand, moving room to room in silence, telling Sage to wait until he is sure it is safe. Instead of seeing the sense in that, Sage would totally ignore him and walk right into the room loudly and unarmed. Is she bullet proof, suicidal, or just stupid? It really bothers me when women are written to be so brainless.
Worse, was the fact that Sage was extremely hypocritical. Part of Johnny's cover was pretending to work for a company where men would sleep with the clients. Over and over she referred to him as a "male prostitute". She had no respect for him because of the job. However, she believed that it was completely acceptable that she used sex to try to convince Johnny to give her answers for her investigation. She brings him to the brink of "completion", then stops cold and says she'll finish for him if he answers her questions. In my book, a prostitute is a prostitute... whether the fee is paid with money, favors, or answers.
Sage's character brought this 5- star story down to a 4 for me.
