In the past his relationship with Cori have been tragic and painful that when he said goodbye to her, he tried to block out her in his life. But he never thought he'll be the one to be assigned to guard her.

The romance began to get sizzle hot, passion and very intense. And the closer they get to finding the killer, the closer the killer will get to find Corrine before they lose the chance at life together.
This is the second book to the "Bullet Catcher" series. Max have originally been seen in Tropical Getaway , her debut novel and also Kill Me Twice (book 1 of the series).
I was looking forward to read Thrill Me to Death (book 2 of series), after reading the first book. Roxanne St. Claire have not disappointed me yet. Her "Bullet Catcher" are so far, thrilling, passion, fun with plenty of action and suspense. You get to know the "Bullet Catcher" team like they're part of your family. The men are very strong alpha with wide variety of personality and sense of humor. The writing are deeply in depth and easy to read, and characters driven.
And even though it was easy to figure out the killer, for me, I love the book and I highly recommend you to read it. Here the link to her website :
