"Clare's impressive novel is rife with gripping suspense, secrets masterfully revealed, and characters in whom [fans] can become emotionally invested." (Romantic Times)
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!
I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.
What an awesome story, with unforgettable characters and a plot that will twist your guts in all sorts of directions. If you like light, fluffy books that you can listen to with "half an ear", this isn't the book for you. If you like action packed, emotionally intense books with a fabulous plot that take a serious look at very real but often unexplored social issues, then this book, heck, this whole series, just might be for you!
Unlawful Contact made me think about a few things that were frankly, quite uncomfortable to think about. It made me consider seriously how vulnerable inmates are to their jailers, how easy it is for these jailers to become jaded and corrupt. It made me think about how convicts have no real voice when it comes to defending themselves against abuse. It also showed how easy it is to be "framed" for a crime, and how just the accusation of wrongdoing can ruin a person's life. It made me consider how much trust we put in law enforcement personnel, and how things can go badly wrong when that trust is misplaced.
Besides the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, messages in this book, the story itself is fast paced and action packed. Hunt is on the run, Sophie is an investigative journalist who, in the course of doing her job, gets caught up in his adventure. They have a past, and they have a very hot present, but do they have a future?
I've really enjoyed this series so far, but this book is definitely my favorite. It truly hit the nail on the head when it comes to benchmark romantic suspense. There was a couple of times when things got so intense I had to hit the pause button and compose myself.
Kaleo Griffith read this book with professional perfection. He kept me spellbound with his flawless pacing. I can't imagine anyone doing it better.
Breathtaking, believable, suspenseful
Too many to pick just one
I have always had a love of reading and now with dimming eyesight , I have transferred that love to audio books. This author, Pamela Clare, is one of my top 5 authors. I held my breath, cried and laughed out loud. Probably even learned a good bit about journalism . She makes it real.
I love happy endings. This was wonderful. You get it all Love, corruption, truth, justice, forgiveness and joy. I am a fan. Sappy love story and I cried, laughed a little and a little hope is good for the soul. Evil can be overcome, YEAH!.
Favorite genre: romantic mystery and romantic thrillers. Love twists and turns and unpredictable plots.
Yes. This is their second novel I read, but the first was better so I'll try again.
One story line, boring, predictable. I was utterly bored especially by the juvenile reminiscing of the high school one nighter shared by the characters. Fifteen years later we are to believe that the only woman the imprisoned character thought of during his six years of incarceration was this woman he had one night with...despite the fact that he's smoking hot? We are supposed to believe the 'hottest' guy in the school and the sophomore girl who grew up to be the 'great' reporter she aspired to be, who shared the one nighter with the hottest guy in the senior class...we are to believe she didn't know his real name in high school? That is an important premise to believing a lot of what happened to this "smart" reporter.
He is very good.
I've read the print version at least twice, and got the book because I really liked Kaleo's reading... he made it come alive in a new way. Great story, great narrator... CAN'T GO WRONG!!!!
The gripping story of young lovers who, after a fateful, WONDERFUL night,are torn apart in different directions, and later find themselves thrust together, years and heartbreaking, life-changing events later.... Yummmmm...this is a recipe for passion and drama... The bad boy gone good, gone bad again, but revealed as truly the BEST of the Best.. and SO DARNED SEXY! The heroine was smart and feisty, yet when it came to her man, when she recognized his heart and that he was still in hers, was determined to stand by her man no matter what. I LOVED this story!!! Pamela Clare ROCKS!!!! And Kaleo can roll me anytime with that smooth, masculine, emotion-laden voice. He had me at hello!
Who can forget that dining room table scene where he cooked for her... and then they cooked TOGETHER in their own intense way... heck.. I felt steamed just listening to it!!! But for sheer drama, the scene where he took a bullet to protect his woman, and nearly died in the process... OMG... i could read that one scene over and over again!!!
If only I could. But CAN listen to it over and over again!
WELL WORTH it, even if you've already read to printed or ebook version....the addition of the voice of the narrator is SO worth buying it again!
Loved the book, loved Kaleo's narration
The suspence and romance
The first time Kara and Reese meet
Even though I had read the book. I still laughed and cried and felt for the characters as I listened to the story.
This whole series is great, but this was my favorite. I think the bad boy aspect was what made it so hot.
I have listened to all of the I-Team series. Kaleo does a great job on all of them.
narrator was good, story was okay. would have been better if author didn't keep repeating every thing
Should I say more? Yes! I had to stay up all night for this one. I laughed, I cried, I hugged myself....and finally I prayed with the preacher and his wife Connie Stevens. And finally I worried myself sick about Hunt. Great story....Great ending.
