I've been reading this series a bit out of order but it hasn't stopped me from really enjoying the Bullet Catcher hot guys series.....and not forgetting their boss, their mysterious and interesting boss lady, Lucy Sharpe. And best of the #8,5 and last book/novella in the Bullet Catcher Series, we get Lucy, her husband, Jack Culver (who is my abso fav) and their seriously cute daughter, Gracie.......oh sorry, and yes, we have sexy and hot Bullet Catcher, Benjamin Youngblood's story. ...more

I absolutely love the Bullet Catchers series. I actually read Pick Your Poison when it was released in the Guns and Roses anthology. I'm thrilled to see it now released as a Novella. At 99 cents you, you would be crazy not to pick up this book. Roxanne St. Claire delivers in her usual fashion--gripping suspense and hot romance. This page turner has you hooked from the beginning. Black Cherry roses, a fearless heroine, a hot freezer scene, an even hotter bullet catcher and a splash of political ...more
It may be short (just 25,000 words), but Roxanne St. Claire's Pick Your Poison has everything you could ever ask for in a novella.

When the story starts, Bullet Catchers founder Lucy Sharpe is firing Ben Youngblood for botching an assignment and losing them a prominent client. His only hope of regaining his job is to prove that the client actually is the target of an assassin, save his ass, and get him to rehire the Bullet Catchers for his private security detail. Easy peasy, right?! Well… not w

At last...another Bullet Catcher story!! It's a novella, but it packs it's usual punch!
Ben Youngblood an operative for Bullet Catchers, has just been fired for doing his job!
He protected Governor Roy McManus of Florida from an assassination attempt. The Governor just felt it was a disruption to his campaign. The Governor has a lot of clout, hence Ben's firing. Ben is determined to get his job back, and bets his boss he can come up with answers. The only clues are a few mysterious items left at t

This was an easy 5 stars for me. I bought it for less than a dollar, read it in less than an hour, and walked away feeling as though I had just gone on a wild ride via Ms. St. Claire. Phenomenal AS ALWAYS!!! Novellas are tricky, especially when they are from a series that you love because they aren't nearly enough, however, I knew what I was walking into and I loved it. Of course, I wouldn't mind if the sexy Ben had his own full length novel either. Great book!
There is a reason I don't read novella's, they don't work for me and this one didn't. The hero is a bullet catcher and a rebel who is fighting for his job after his last assignment, he recruits the farmer heroine for help. Honestly, I found the book cheesy plus their sudden lust didn't work for me.

Pick Your Poison
by Roxanne St. Claire

Poison & Passion!

This Bullet Catcher novella may be a slightly shortened version compared to one of the lengthier novels we are used to reading from St. Claire in her award-winning romantic suspense series, but it definitely doesn't lack for action, suspense, and romance. A fast read that grips you from beginning to end.

Ben Youngblood and Callie Parrish make for a highly unlikely but nonetheless steamy pair as they team up to stop an assassin, race again

Excellent! Filled with action and romance as you know Roxanne St. Claire provides us start Ben Youngblood pleads with Lucy Sharpe to not fire him. They lose the biggest client they had the Gov. of Florida Roy Mc Manus...Ben is telling Lucy he will get him back. He wants another chance. She finally bends but no help from the Bullet Catchers. The Black Cherry Rose and few other things are clues, and are telling Ben's gut they have everything to do with what's going on. He will get to the ...more

I've read and loved the Bullet Catcher series & so I was absolutely thrilled when I saw this release! I immediately bought and downloaded Pick Your Poison to my Kindle. Pick Your Poison was not a let down. St. Claire has delivered another entertaining romantic suspense with this one. Although, this was a novella it didn't lose any touch of St. Claire's skill of flawless writing and storytelling. Pick Your Poison was sexy and fast paced with a fun plot.

Also included was a sprinkle of suspens

A stand-alone e-book novella (25,000 words) in the popular Bullet Catchers series!
Roxanne St. Claire did it again! From the very first sentence I knew I would love this story. What’s not to love, with a hot hero, Ben Youngblood, a feisty heroine, Callie Parrish, and a sexy, exciting adventure? It’s a clever story; full of the light humor and sexy banter between her characters.

Oh Roxanne St. Claire did it again. I can never get enough of The Bullet Catchers. Ben and Callie are so great together. This novella was as action packed as the full-length BC books, and I wish it was longer. All the emotions I felt with the longer books still assailed me with this novella. I loved catching up with Lucy Sharpe too. The ending leaves the possibility of more to come, and I have my fingers crossed. I really miss these guys and I hope that someday, St. Claire will write more of ...more

Decided to read this novella as a sample for the Bullet Catcher series. I just finished the Barefoot Bay series and loved it. I can tell this series is different, in the way Marie Force's Gansett Island is different from her Fatal series, but I still love it. Hopefully I feel the same way after book 1 in this series!

What a great addition to the Bullet Catchers! I loved this short. Benjamin Youngblood was a wonderful hero. I loved Callie, her spunk, her courage. Because this was short, it was nonstop suspense from page one to the end. What a great book!

Pretty good for a Novella... From me, that's high praise. I dislike novellas, as they're too short and the story generally suffers from it.

I'm going to say that this was very well written and that not being familiar with the series wasn't a problem at all, except the fact that my to read list just got longer... again

As usual, Roxanne delivers a great read and I really enjoyed the mystery in this one - as a gardener and a Floridian!

This story was just too quick for me to really get into. It was hard for me to really buy into their relationship.

Short, sweet and fun. This could have been nicely expanded into a full length novel, but for a short novella, this was nicely done.

Short and sweet. Strong carachters, a thriller element.
