    1. 5 stars – Romantic SuspenseI’m a fan of Roxanne St. Claire’s Bullet Catchers series, and this is a great debut read in the spin-off Guardian Angelinos series. It’s about the Boston-based Rossi family of five siblings and their Italian-born cousins, Zach and Vivi Angelino, who start a private security and investigation company. In Edge of Sight, Zach is back from fighting the war on terror, but it cost him the woman he loved and an eye and left him scarred, emotionally damaged, hollow, an [...]


    2. Terrific book! But do yourself a favor before you start this book--read the prequel ("Taken To The Edge") available on the author's website first (roxannestclaire/)--it makes this book soooo much better. I don't know why it wasn't included in the book (publisher's/editor's decision, story length criteria?) since it helps tremendously to establish the relationship between the H/h. After I read that emotional and waaay sexy prequel (thank you to all the GR reviewers who mentioned it!) I was hooked [...]


    3. Would you trust your life to a guy who rolled out of bed one day and decided to start his own bodyguard service with no qualifications other than he used to be an awesome soldier? Me either, and that’s one of the things I loved about this story. But I’ll get to that a little later…I really enjoyed this book, and getting to know the cast of characters. I was glad that I read the free prequel found on the author’s website, because that gives us a real feel for the relationship dynamic betw [...]


    4. I won this book in the First Reads giveaway.Whew! What a ride! I enjoyed Roxanne St. Claire’s Edge of Sight so much that I have added ALL of her books to my mountainous to-read pile.For full enjoyment of Edge of Sight, please go to roxannestclaire/ and read Taken to the Edge first. It isn’t mandatory, but it will really help you understand the main characters and their motivations a little bit better. Actually take a few minutes and explore her site because Uncle Nino has some very deliciou [...]


    5. Edge of Sight is my first book by Roxanne St. Claire. I’m really picky with my Romantic Suspense books since Cynthia Eden, I guess, I expect a lot from authors and their stories and Roxanne did not disappoint. Edge of Sight was a great RS, I mean, there was suspense and romance: mission accomplished!Samantha “Sam” Fairchild is a young woman who works at a famous restaurant, one night while she goes in the cellar to get some wine, she witnesses a murder. Thing is, she’s not the most relia [...]


    6. Amy and Tracy are chatting about Edge of Sight by Roxanne St. Clarie today.Amy: So, Tracy. I read the first two chapters of Edge of Sight before knowing about the prequel (available for free at Roxanne St. Claire’s website). Then found out about it and read it. I recommend that everyone read it before starting Edge, don’t you? The prequel gave a lot of information as to the individuality of the characters and how their relationship began.Tracy: I completely agree and appreciate you telling m [...]


    7. Roxanne St. Claire kicks off her first in a new series full of action, suspense, mystery and romance. Fans of her Bullet Catcher series will be delighted to jump right in this romantic thriller.Samantha Fairchild is a magnet for trouble. Since she was a witness to a crime years ago, she hopes to stay away from all dangers. But it is hard when she witness a murder of a well known journalist in the basement of the restaurant she works at. The cops are not trying to help her so she turns to the onl [...]


    8. Totally loved this book. Before I get into how get the book was and I loved Zack and Sam. Let me take a moment to say I LOVE UNCLE NINO!!!!! Everyone should have an Uncle Nino. I don't but I want one! Love him!!!! ok ok So Sam witnesses a murder while working at a restaurant. She is the only true witness and so of course the hit man is after her. Because of something that she did when she was 16 the police are not offering her protection ( which is such crap), so she goes to good friend Vivi. Bu [...]



    9. If you like this author's Bullet Catcher's series you will like this one too, it is a slight spin off, but if you haven't read them it won't matter or detract one bit. The Guardian Angelinos are a misfit family, thrown together by tragedy and kept together by choice. Things weren't always easy for them, but with a common goal you can see where this family is going and boy what a ride their adventures are going to be!At the heart of this story is Samantha, who used to be best friends with Vivi, a [...]


    10. THE EDGE OF SIGHT is one of my favorite books by Roxanne St. Claire. It's the first in her Guardian Angelino's series, but Zach and Samantha's story really starts in the prequel, "Taken to the Edge". This one starts with Samantha witnessing a murder making herself the target of a professional hitman. She must go into hiding if she wants to keep herself alive. She turns to her old friend Vivi Angelino for help which also puts Zach back in her life. The man who broke her heart when he went back to [...]


    11. Good story! Nice quick read. This is the first book I've read by Roxanne St. Claire, and I really enjoyed her writing and story telling. Look forward to reading Marc & Devyns story.


    12. Nice spinoff from "The Bullet Catcher" series by this author! Set in Boston, 2010 and focused on all new characters with subtle mention of Lucy from the other series. Enjoyed following the main characters, Zaccaria Angelino "Zach" and Samantha Fairchild "Sam/Sammie" as they were both good souls. Zach and Sam met three years prior and fell in lust fast. After a whirlwind three weeks together, Zach departed for a classified military assignment and never contacted Sam again. She was crushed. He was [...]


    13. I have to say I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this! I read RS's first Bullet Catcher book and thought it was ok. I tried two others but lost interest fast. Her characters didn't really interest me and the story line's didn't pull me in either.However I figured I'd give this new (silly-named) series a try. I read the prequal and liked it enough to buy the book.Wow. Great romantic suspense, great family, great characters. As with most romantic suspense, you do need to be able to suspend beli [...]


    14. I won an ARC of "Edge of Sight" on Roxanne's Facebook page today. So excited! Love her books and became a fan from the first one "Tropical Getaway."Super debut in St. Claire's first book in the new "Guardian Angelinos" series. Wonderful new characters in this closely knit Italian family. Great excitement and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. The first book will touch your heartstrings with its wonderful reunion romance. Book releases in October and I'll complete my review then. Anot [...]


    15. REVIEW OF AUDIOBOOK & REREAD; APRIL 1, 2014: Narrator: Violet Grey2.8 stars for story; 4 stars for narratorThe Story: What a disappointment this reread was! This second time around, I found the story and characters annoying and the suspense thread just wasn't suspenseful at all. I read the short, free prequel and like Jane Stewart, found it sensual, and a better read than the main story.I gave this book 4 stars when I read it back in 2011 (see earlier review) and I struggle to give it 3 toda [...]

    18. I don’t know if Roxanne St. Clarie plans on writing any more books in her Bullet Catcher series (maybe they’re just on temporary hiatus), but her new series featuring the men/women of the Rossi/Angelino families are sure to entice, excite and get your heart pounding if Edge of Sight is any indication. So au revoir Bullet Catchers and hello…Bring on the Guardian Angelinos. It’s like a murder mystery dinner theatre gone bad at the upscale Boston restaurant Paupiette the night part-time wai [...]


    19. Narrated by Violet GrayOriginally published at Audiogals: audiogals/2012/10/edge-of-Story: C+Narration: B+In this first installment of St. Clair’s new series, the reader witnesses the birth of the Guardian Angelinos security firm. As with many first-in-series books, it feels top heavy with characters who will no doubt show up in subsequent books. The writing was serviceable but not great, with too much pondering by both main characters, and too much rehashing of past events. While the first ha [...]


    20. When Samantha Fairchild witnesses a murder in the wine cellar of the restaurant where she works, the Harvard-bound law student becomes the next target of a professional assassin. Desperate for protection the authorities won't provide, Sam seeks help from Vivi Angelino, an investigative reporter who recruits her brother, Zach, to protect Samantha. A Special Forces vet with the scars to prove he's equally fearless and flawed, Zach takes the job, despite the fact that he and Sam once shared a lusty [...]


    21. Ms St. Claire is a consistant winner with me. I like the way she blends the suspense and romance in her novels. There is a prequel, a short story on Ms St Claire's website that introduces the hero and heroine and gives us a little insight into their relationship. I recommend reading it but its not necessary for the story.In the 1st of the series Guardian Angelinos, Samantha Fairchild, the heroine, is working as a waitress but has aspirations of something greater. Harvard law school. Zach Angelin [...]


    22. I really enjoyed this book, even though it's not perfect.The characters' mutual attraction and deeper feelings for each other was obvious from the beginning - and I didn't even read the prequel before. Considering the story short timeframe, I didn't feel like Sam held a grudge for too long over Zach's past disappearance. And Zach's behaviour was convincingly explained later on. The overall plot was good, with a gripping suspense that made it difficult to put the book back on the table at night t [...]


    23. Roxanne St. Claire writes my favorite kind of romantic suspense--heavy on the passion and snappy dialogue. EDGE OF SIGHT is one of her best, with high-stakes suspense and page-turning tension, as well as a hero to die for! The emotion blew me away, and made me super excited for the rest of the Guardian Angelinos books!


    24. Awesome first book in a new series by Roxanne St.Claire. If you liked her Bullet catcher series you'll love this. Before reading this book read the short prequel on her website. Can't wait for the next one in the series this spring.

    26. An exciting, heart pumping start to a new seriesLife is all about second chances and taking the lessons learned and figuring out how to make you better. Zach Angelino has had second, third and fourth chances during the many life altering changes in his life and has built a life around guarding his heart and keeping secrets.

    28. I found myself caught up in this book from the beginning and really didn't want to put it down. When I had to stop reading and do something else all I could do was hurry up so I could get back to it. That makes it a great book in my eyes. I was thrilled to get to review this book because one of my friends had been telling me how I needed to pick up and read one of Roxanne St. Caire's books that I didn't know what I was missing. Well she was right. This was a fantastic read. I really enjoyed the [...]


    29. A first-rate whodunit debut for Ms. St. Claire’s new series, The Guardian Angelinos. It is heavier on the suspense than the romance, but you will not be disappointed. The story is well defined and engaging, making this a page turner that moves quickly. Although many family members are introduced, they are easy to differentiate from each other due to Ms. St. Claire’s excellent writing. Each character comes alive on the page.The ground work for the family business is being laid in this first n [...]
