Edge of Sight by Roxanne St. Claire

Book Description:
The killer she can't escape . . .
The heartbreak she can't forget . . .
The one man who can stop them both.

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 interlude that ended when he left for war and disappeared from her life. Now, as they crack a conspiracy that leads to Boston's darkest corners, Sam and Zach must face their fears, desires, and doubts, before a hired killer gets a second shot...

My Thoughts:
I liked this book! Sam witnesses a murder at work, and her face gets caught on tape by the assassin. She goes to her friend Vivi to get help only to run into old flame, Zach, Vivi's twin. Zach takes on the job of guarding Sam against his better judgement and now they have a race against time to find the assassin and who hired him before they find Sam. Sam and Zach have the support and backing of his family but have to go up against the police, assassin, mafia and crazed truckers to find the truth!
The characters in this book were great! I liked all of them, especially Vivi, she is the mastermind behind most of the 'schemes' and is just a wonderful person. The sparks between Zach and Sam are so hot and the chemistry is so intense that you can almost feel it! I like that Zach has physical flaws that are realistic as are the reasons he feels he isn't good enough for Sam. His physical flaw doesn't make me happy, but it does make him more believable instead of the main character always being 'drop dead gorgeous'! It was a good book to read to just relax and enjoy.
This is a 4/5...good read and I can't wait for the rest of the series!
