Sparks fly when a hardboiled reporter meets a handsome senator. But a political scandal - and attempts on her life - could drive them apart. Or maybe adversity could draw them into a bond even more intense than their steamy sexual embraces.

"A perfect 10 of a gem, Extreme Exposure has all the elements of great romance and is an entertaining summer [listen]." (Romantic Times)
If you haven't treated yourself to the best romantic suspense series that I've ever read, you are missing something really special. The I-Team is a group of investigative journalists for an independent Denver, Colorado newspaper. Extreme Exposure is the first book in the series. (Right now there are five books with a sixth due out May 2013). The book is a superb blend on action, suspense, romance and some really red-hot passion. I will NOT post spoilers about the story, but Kara is a talented single mom who works as a journalist, and Reece is a state senator. Their meeting is quite memorable...that is all I'm gonna say about that!
I am an audio book fan and feel it is important to match the book to the narrator. Kaleo Griffith is a relative new-comer in this field and has a great future ahead of him. He is an excellent actor, has a wonderful 'bedroom' voice, his female characters each have distinctive voices, accents and cadence of speech without the reader using a falsetto voice. It is easy to tell one character from another and it was not necessary to replay to figure out who is speaking.
The writing is great and the narration is some of the best I've heard. The audio version of book two in the series - Hard Evidence is due out on November 19th. I am a die-hard fan and cannot wait!
wow, what at great new team! Ms Clare knows how to write a great, fast and sexy story.
This is a great listen. Mr Griffith has got the voice and knows how to pace his reading. Sexy and yummy. Move over Victor Selzack, and James Daniels. Ms Sandra Brown and Ms Julie Garwood, take a listen to this reader. He can make your books sizzle.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
I loved the vulnerability of the characters in this story. Reece had been a political science high school teacher, who accepted a challenge from his students to run for office and make a difference, and won. Meet the new, young state senator, who all of a sudden has become a very eligible bachelor, whereas before he was basically ignored by the opposite sex. Meet Keira, a single mom, who was an investigative reporter, who hadn't had sex in so long, that Mr. Jiggle was her best friend. One too many margarita's imbided by Kiera, and her potty mouth grabs the attention of Reece and to him, her blatant questions and talk was very intriguing. Kiera gets a tip from a whistle blower and begins an investigation into a firm that has heavy political ties in the state, starting with the Governor. Soon the accidents begin, suspicions arise, and the heat between Reece and Kiera becomes unbearable, making Kiera so afraid, she starts to back away from Reece. The action, intrigue and murderous intent keeps one riveted.
Now for the narrator, Kaleo Griffith is one sexy-voiced man. He did a phenomenal job, and I can't wait to listen to the next installment.
Give me all your hot, sexy romance BUT must be a smart read too.
OUTSTANDING NARRATOR!!!! The sexy voice of the narrator along with his voice inflections distinguishing character voices helped to make this book a MUST READ!
The story is exciting, super sexy hot and basically I could not stop listening. I enjoy investigative reporter/ politician plots both in real life and fiction. This is definitely a hot thriller.
Well worth a download credit. Can't wait to read the other books in the series.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Intrigue, danger and romance.
I enjoyed the storyline. Politics, cover-ups, danger and a love story thrown in to make it better.
My first listen of Kaleo Griffith and I think he did a very good job.
I kept getting interrupted during this book so due to the distractons I couldn't focus on it as much as I wanted. I can't honestly say if it would of been one that I would of had to listen to all at one time.
I like this book but I think I would rather buy it on sale than use my credit. Not to say it isn't good, but I like to use my credits on the books I rate with 5 stars.
The author's personal knowledge of investigative reporting, truly comes out in this book. The details of what goes on for a reporter to get a story, is fascinating. This story is romantic suspense...so there is a great romance to go along with all the fast paced action of the heroine reporters investigative story. All make for a very enticing read, and a book that never gets dull. The narrator is great. I'm usually not a fan of men narrating romance books of any kind...but Kaleo Griffith is great. I've read all of Pamela Clare's I-Team books, and it was great fun re-visting this series via audio. Although it's the same book I read several years ago...the audio makes it seem fresh again! I will be getting the entire series on audio, as each title is released.
The whole story ~ was in turns funny and others totally moving. Very REAL writing, Kara & Reece are a great couple and I enjoyed so much the building of their relationship.
That it wasn't instant love for Reece and Kara ~ they built up towards it, and how they had to learn to trust & respect one another for WHO they were.
Hmm...honestly, he did an amazing job as BOTH Reece AND Kara. At times Kara's voice would be a little high pitched, lol, but it was perfection for the tone, inflection, etc...I had never listened to him before, and was SO thrilled with this performance. I'd read the book when it first came out, but have to say he DID add to the story, which was already amazing!
A Scorching Romantic Suspense
If you're a fan of Romantic Suspense ~ especially smoking HAWT books ~ don't miss this one. It was really great, and not to be missed!
Absolutely and I have. Romance strong female and male leads. Interesting story and strong female supporting staff. The women reports from the I-team had no problem drawing me into there world. The chemistry between Kara and Reece is igniting.
I loved Kara, she is smart has a sense of humor and is dedicated to her craft . She a good mother and friend. Just the kind of girlfriend you'd want to have on your side.
When Kara and Reece first meet, to say more would take away from the fun.
Yes, the book kept my interest from beginning to end. It worth the credit
It is a really good "read".
Any of the scenes between Reece & Kara's son, Conner
This is a good 'who-dun-it' along with a great romance. Defined characters with great, well thought out personalities. I cannot wait to listen to the rest!
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Loved the story, the investigation, the fear , just enough passion, and great ending !!
Another series with the drama and passion ....like that there is an actual story behind it.
Narration was ok .....not a real big fan on the male voice trying to do different females, however realistic passion for a realistic couple ! Worth a credit...onto the next book
