    "O-M-G........."

    Many times when there is a series that you fall in love with at the first book, you don't expect them to keep the momentum. As listening to them (FABULOUS NARRATOR), I considered Book 3 as being my favorite!!!!! UNTIL THIS ONE!!! Holy Baby Jesus Miss Clare.......bravo on this book! I was gripped from the beginning and sleep deprived until the end!

    I felt all the emotions which was from the clever writing and the delivery of the narrator. Passion, anxiety, heartache, fear and love; I cried and laughed!!

    Can I just say May 2013 is TOOOOOOOOOO long for the next!!

    "Best in the I-Team Series"

    Captivating story with credible backdrop of journalist and U.S. law enforcement investigating Mexican drug cartels, human trafficking, etc. Reintroduces characters from prior books in the series, but could be read as stand-alone. Narrator great with male voices but not so with female voices. Romance is tender; sex is hot; friendships touching; violence a bit graphic at times. Recommend you read the whole series, but if you decide to read just one--pick this one.

    Any additional comments?

    I read this book a while ago, and decided to give the audio a try. Since then, I've listened to two other I-Team books. This one so far is my favorite, in that it is a bit different from the other two, but not by much.They are very formulaic, and only the character's names seem to change. The heroine's life is threatened because of a story she's following, she goes off into hiding/protective custody with hero to protect her, they repeatedly have sex during this time without any commitment (only physical attraction), heroine's life is in mortal danger from the bad guy, hero comes to save the day. Hero has major commitment issues for various reasons, and doesn't admit his love for the heroine until the end, keeps pushing her away even after she tells him she loves him, yet she continues to have sex with him. Oh, and there's always the "am I pregnant?" question hanging in the air.

    Lots of strong language, and many graphic sex scenes. A huge turn-off for me is when the F word is used between a couple when they are supposed to have feelings for each other. It just sort of demeans the act. Call me old-fashioned (but not old)

    What I like about Ms Clare's books is that she obviously puts in a lot of time researching her subject material, and that makes the stories interesting to me. What I don't like so much is that there is way too much character introspection, which overlaps with the narration. The books could be a lot shorter without all the repetition.

    Kaleo Griffith did an excellent job bringing these characters to life, giving each a distinct voice.

    "There should be a ten star option."
    If you could sum up Breaking Point: I-Team Series, Book 5 in three words, what would they be?

    SO FREAKING AWESOME!


    Which character – as performed by Kaleo Griffith – was your favorite?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    "Wonderful narrator."
    What made the experience of listening to Breaking Point: I-Team Series, Book 5 the most enjoyable?

    Kaleo Griffith is a new favorite narrator. He narrates in such a way that you can tell when the characters are thinking as well as talking, and his voices are nicely done. This story was fast paced and had a lot of action (both kinds...).


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this story right up until the end - tiny spoiler here, but not for the plot - where the female character seemed to go from being an independent, driven, curious journalist to a stay-at-home mom in the blink of an eye. This struck me as odd and out of character, and even more odd because all her female friends at the paper still seem to work there even after starting families.

    "FASCINATING PLOT!"

    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!

    "One of the Better in the Fantastic I-Team Series"
    If you could sum up Breaking Point: I-Team Series, Book 5 in three words, what would they be?

    Intense, Intimate, Investigation


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breaking Point: I-Team Series, Book 5?

    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....


    What three words best describe Kaleo Griffith’s voice?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Generally the way Natalie & Zach look out for, and take care of each other throughout different parts of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Some strong language, sexual situation & violence.
