This review is really for the whole series, as I loved all of them. Pamela Clare did a wonderful job developing the characters...both the men and the women. I think what I enjoyed most is that the the series moved through the different members of the I-team while keeping the characters I already fell in love with part of the story. And Kaleo Griffith is now, by far, my favorite narrator for this genre. I love how he used such distinct, but subtle, voices for everyone, so I always knew who was talking. I was so disappointed when I discovered I had listened to them all. Since then, I have been searching, with no success, to find another series with such great writing, strong & lovable characters, intriguing plots, and steamy sex!
SO FREAKING AWESOME!
Of all the heroes in the I Teams books, Zack takes first prize. Loved him from the beginning. Holly has also become my favorite by far. I WANT MORE! Pamela Claire needs to write them a little faster, I am going to download book 5.5 now and wait anxiously for the next book.
The ending, she gets me everytime, but this ending was powerful. I literally sat on the floor and wept. Zack and Holly are both scarred on the inside, in the end the peace Zack's acceptance was so emotional and Holly's was so dear, even though it didn't come close to Zack's.
I don't write many reviews but I feel compelled to sing the praises of this author! A narrator can certainly make or break a good book and Kaleo Griffith in my opinion is one of the best. I've listened to all 5 books in the I-Team series and am terribly disappointed that there aren't any more. Pamela Clare incorporates intrigue, suspense, romance and depth to all her characters and story lines. All in this series were good but when I started listening to this last book, I didn't stop until it was over. I will be anxiously waiting for the next one! Sure hope this doesn't end the series!
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Intense, Intimate, Investigation
There are a lot of memorable moments..the first for me was Zach teaching out to Natalie when they were first locked up in Mexico.
Another, but unrealistic was the scene in the desert between Zach & Natalie. VERY hot-in several ways-but enjoyable!
Denver journalist Natalie Benoit and Deputy U.S. Marshal Zach McBride find themselves captives of a bloodthirsty Mexican drug cartel. Working together, they escape through the desert toward the border, the attraction between them flaring hotter than the Sonoran sun. They fight to stay ahead of the danger that hunts them as forces more powerful than they can imagine conspire to destroy them both....
Solid, capable & steady. While I enjoy Kaleo Griffith's work-I have heard others who are more talented-Not sure why all the reviewers are so gaga.
Generally the way Natalie & Zach look out for, and take care of each other throughout different parts of the story.
Some strong language, sexual situation & violence.
Nurse Anesthetist. Love audiobooks!
Terrific story and great narrator! Ive enjoyed all the books in this series, but this is the best. Many twists and turns.
I absolutely loved this story from the I team series. For me this was my favorite. The ride that Natalie and Zach take us on just seems to be non-stop. You find yourself holding on through the intense escape from the cartel to the multiple attempts on their lives. This is one I book that I didn’t put down until it ended. You will laugh cry and just fall in love with their story. A good book and definitely worth the credit.
Yes I would recommend this audiobook. Kaleo Griffen gives a great naration to this book.
I love all the characters, I don't know if I could pick a favorite.
Kaleo Griffith gives each character in the book a different persona, I love each one.
I had read Breaking Point and had listened to the other audio additons to Pamela Clare's I-Team series. Kaleo does an awesome job bringing the characters to life adding more drama to the suspence and romance in the story.
As any longtime lover of audiobooks will tell you, a bad narrator can ruin a good book, and a great narrator can make any book seem fantastic. Happy to report, Mr. Griffith is one of the best I've ever encountered. (And I have listened to a LOT of audiobooks in my day.)
I must admit, I was surprised at first when he reads the women's lines in a female voice. (The falsetto made me giggle a little, especially when he does southern accents) but I got used to it in, oh, approximately five minutes, and after that, found myself wondering why all romance audiobooks don't have a male reader! It really adds something to the story.
I highly recommend this book and the narrator. Here's hoping the next one comes out soon.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Don't Expect Sleep
love the survival kit list.
This man makes all of the books great. A good story can carry a bad reader. This reader really increase the whole listening experience. Mr. Griffith has a great back up career, he has all the work he wants to take. Sandra Brown, you should add to your reader list.
The graphic violence, was short, and can stay with you. This is #5 and is really more of an adventure story, not a core romance. It grabs you from the 1st chapter and you cannot stop until you finish. Be prepare for no sleep. Book #1 is still one of my favorites as it is even all the way the through. Julian's story is good from part 2. I have to listen to #3 and 4 and will review. this book has humor, but gets eclipsed by the terror.
Ms Clare,may want to get out of core romance and get into main stream fiction like Sandra Brown. This book can get her started. Not the best flow of adding back old characters. This is tried by so many authors. If a book is well done, readers/listeners will hunt more from an author. Authors want to be like Nora Roberts/ JD Rob having 35 books in a series. #1 rule, write a good story and fans will seek out your work. Don't spend so much time trying to get readers to dig out your books.
I loved all 5 of the books is the series. They were all so good I hated for them to end. I can't help but wonder what ever happened to Holly. I really hope there is a 6th book. Pamela Clare writes amazing stories and Kaleo Griffith is an amazing narrator. I could not put the books down. Please write more!!!!
