Natalie Jones was once a famous photographer ~ but now, paralyzed by blindness that was brought on by a degenerative eye disease, Natalie is pretty much at a stand still in her life. Denying to herself that her blindness might be forever and that she's going to have change her way of living, Natalie has pretty much isolated herself ~~ until she walks in to her own home on what appears to be a burglary in progress and is almost killed.
State Special Agent Liam “Mac” McKenzie and his partner show up to interview Natalie when certain things about her case click with a case they've been working ~ a murder case. When Mac meets Natalie he's instantly and forcefully attracted to her ~ to the point he can't focus on anything else. Not realizing she's blind at first, he's suspicious why this woman is holding back and so abrasive w/ the cops.
The sparks fly instantly ~ while Natalie can't 'see' Mac, she drawn to his voice, but she's scared and confused as to why the cops are back ~~ until she realizes there is more to the simple break in that what she'd first thought.
This book was SO good ~ I listened to the audio version, and the narrator was a little slow in the narration, so I had to speed the narration up to 1.25, but then it was perfect! I so felt for Natalie, who had had her world turned upside down on her...then flipped on it's side. First, the blindness, then the break in and attempt on her life, then meeting this man she feels such a compelling pull towards. And she hadn't even begun to accept her blindness yet.
Mac is a gruff, in your face kind of guy ~ and his protective instincts have flared to life with Natalie, and it's hard for him to separate her as woman from her as a case. I LOVE that ~ and while he's really gruff at times, it was clear to me that even if he couldn't admit it to himself, he'd already decided on some level that Natalie was HIS.
When he discovers that there is actually a murderer trying to kill her, he just can't control his overbearing maleness, for lack of a better way to put it. He's a total Alpha in every sense of the word ~ And Natalie has teach him that he can't run her life.
I enjoyed this book immensely, and cannot WAIT for book 2 ~~ if you're a fan of romantic suspense, Alpha heroes, and sexy romance, READ THIS!!
This is a spin off, very loosely, from her Bullet Catcher series. And let me tell you, I was heart broken when she said she was done w/ that series!!
If you haven't read Roxanne St. Claire, that woman can WRITE, and she can write anything...from edge of your seat, Mission Impossible adventure to emotional scenes that will wrench your gut...and I was like OH NOES...but she doesn't dissapoint one bit picking up w/ this new series. I'd actually read the books, but when they first came out, but it was a true pleasure listening to Edgo of Sight...the narrator, Violet Gray, truly brought these amazing characters to life. To me, a good book rolls like like watching a movie in my head ~ listening to a GREAT book IS watching a movie in my head. I can't think of a better way to explain to you. I never thought I'd be a fan of audio books, but I'm here to tell if you have a great narrator, they ROCK!!
Quick run down on the story ~ Samantha Fairchild witnesses a high profile murder while working, and is scared for her life. Because of past bad blood, she's afraid the police aren't really interested in looking out for her best interests...and she's not sure where to turn next. So she texts an friend who also happens to be an investigative journalist who she's lost touch with ~ who says come right over.
Sam had lost touch w/ Vivi, the journalist, because of her brother, Zach...and Sam's feelings of betrayal and hurt when Zach just up & forgot about her. When Zach is the one who at Vivi's apartment when Sam gets there, w/ his missing eye, scarred face, and sparks flying between them, Sam runs...right into a killer.
Is that teaser enough?? LOL, you HAVE to get these books. I'm doing book 2 today ~ book 3 isn't out on Audio yet, but guess what? It just won a National Readers Choice Award, so I'm sure it will be out soon!!
I read so I can write
I am so impressed with this book I am almost speechless. The strong strong character relationships carry a powerful mystery that kept me guessing until the final chapter. This was a great beginning to a series. I am hooked and going for the next book.
This was my first Marie Force book and I bought it on the current special. I am so glad I did.
The narrator wasn't the best but she didn't ruin this wonderful book. This is definitely one going my list of books to listen to again.
