If I could give this book more then 5 stars I would.
I'm so sorry Holly for underestimating you and thinking you were a bimbo. A funny and caring bimbo. I was wrong. Very wrong. You are so much more.
This story blew me away. Twisting, turning.
And Nick...oh my.
Kaleo, as always, gave an outstanding performance.
Pamela Clare...you. are. awesome.
The story is well written. There were funny moments along with intrigue, drama, action and some pretty hot sex! I loved Nick and Holly, well, I think she has become my favorite I-Team woman!
Everything! He is a master at narration! The only reason I read the book first is the audiobook was not out yet and I couldn't wait. The minute it was available on Audible I used a credit and listened to the book for my re-read.
I am a huge fan of this author and own all of her books. Her writing style is a perfect mix of suspense and hot romance. Add to this an amazing narrator and you have a series of books worth listening to over and over.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
While Pamela Clare is a wonderful writer, I didn't find the 2 main characters Nick & Holly to be believable or realistic.
Supposedly Holly was a CIA whore, ordered by the USA gov't to spread her legs on command. She was portrayed as a brave patriot who would sacrifice her body for her country, while I found her to be weak and easily manipulated, with no self-respect.
Likewise, Nick was ex-military and deep cover CIA, and willing to torture another American when ordered by his corrupt boss. What kind of man would do that? He was described as a religious man who loved his family; yet he followed immoral orders without protest.
Since I couldn't connect with Holly or Nick, I lost interest and my mind started to wander. I wish the author would use her considerable talent to write stronger, more mature female characters.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Hot, Hunky, Human
The reader used his own voice when our heroine thinks or describes a scene. This is such an improvement over the other stories. Reader is as good as they get, but his female voice is not the best, and he is smart enough to use his own voice as much as possible. All of his male voices are too die for, big time. In this story, reader only uses the female voice when Holly is actually speaking directly to another person. Perfect solution!
All the hunky guys in this series...Yum, but Nick is the best! Kaleo figured out how to reduce his female voice time, brilliant!
"Watch Your Back
I have use 1.25x speed and this makes this story move at the pace the author intended.
Went almost halfway through the book, but had to return it. Just very predictable and, though the narrator was ok, I was very bothered by his being the female voice, too. Almost like a bad female impersonator.
