After the murder of a teenage girl, a mysterious man in a black leather jacket was seen lurking near the crime scene. Investigative reporter Tessa Novak has him in her sights as the culprit.
That man was Julian Darcangelo, an undercover FBI agent working with the Denver police. He's closing in on the trail of a human trafficker and killer. Tessa's accusations could blow his cover, and he wants her off the investigation.
But just as Tessa has made Julian a target of interest, she is now a target of the killer. And as they are forced to trust each other, their physical attraction escalates as intensely as the threat from a ruthless murderer who wants to see both of them dead...

"Calling on her own experiences, reporter turned author Clare adds a realistic edge to her suspenseful writing. . . . Clare definitely seems to have found her niche." (Romantic Times)
In a heartbeat! It is worth the repeat just to get involved in hearing how Tessa and Julian met up, and fell in love, in spite of the whirlwind of crime, and terror and danger spinning around them . . .
“Julian placed her purse in the front seat. "She's got a loaded double-deuce in her purse, Peterson, though I'm not sure she knows how to use it. And be sure to book her on one count of falsifying information on a driver's license while you're at it."
"What?" she cried. "You're just making stuff up!"
He pulled off his shades, met her gaze, saw the outrage and disbelief in her eyes. "It says you weigh one-fifteen, but i know for a fact you're not a pound under one-twenty."
Her cheeks flushed crimson. "Oooh!”
Julian has a way of getting under Tessa's skin from the git-go, and it all started with this scene . . .
Yep, you betcha, but couldn't do it-life happens, and I had to listen in bits and pieces---arrrrgghhhhh!!!
Again, kudos to Kaleo Griffith, for his top notch narration, acting ability, and his uncanny way to get each character Right, including all the secondary people as well!
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
Coming off the first book which I loved loved loved; I wasn't as fond of this one. The first half of the book was a little drawn out as the story was set up and because of the profound story-line, it was hard for me to engage in the romance.
The narrator was wonderful as he was in the first; definitely one of the most "sexy" male voices!!!!
If the female investigative reporter (Tessa) was smarter than a chunk of wood.
The first one was great. This one I fast forwarded so much because I couldn't believe what a blundering idiot Tessa was. I would put her common sense somewhere around 12-13, but I don't want to insult that age group.
I'd replace the female lead with someone who has a brain that matches her supposed credentials.
Could have been a really good book.
What a voice...he is one of the best I have heard since Phil Gigante. When will they learn that a masculine part requires a male narrator!!!! It makes all the difference in the world!
Please Please Please realize that masculine parts in books require male narrators!!! It makes it or breaks it. Nothing worse than hearing a Scottish Highlander or an undercover cop that sounds like Pee Wee Herman!!!
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
The story base on human trafficking just a big turn off for me. Trying to make it through this one. I enjoy FBI story but to seriously close to real life suffering
I had read this novel a couple years ago, and immediately became a Pamela Claire fan. When I heard this was out in audio, I grabbed it. It is spine chilling, romantic and sweet and I couldn't turn it off, even though I had already read the story!
The growth of the relationship between Kara and Reese. It wasn't a meet and jump in bed kind of thing, although Kara and Margaritas made it close. Also the immediate acceptance of Kara's son by Reese.
Kaleo Griffith totally brought this story to life! I could listen to him read just about anything. Looking forward to listening to the next I-Team book!
I laughed, and felt heart racing fear, at different times. Loved the romance.
Recommend this series, and applaud Kaleo Griffith on his performance.
Tall dark and sexy Julian Darcangelo is all man and the bad boy of every woman’s dreams. How can Tessa resist falling for him in this second installment of the I team. I enjoy the balance of a good story, fun romance and the woman of the I team. This story doesn’t disappoint. The interaction between Tessa and Julian keeps you engaged from beginning to end. And I am glad the author stayed with the same narrator who has grown on me more with this book. Worth a credit, if you like a good story with romance and danger thrown in to keep you guessing.
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Love this series! The investigative team is so exciting and the woman are great ! Each story is so intense. Anxious for the next and the next ! Not a disappointment in any area ! Julian is soooo sexy !
good story with a bit of mystery. Very investigative type of story line. Dialogue better than average.
Great reader, Kaleo Griffith....whoa what a great sexy reading voice. He is making this series.
when the 3 men paint the Trim, and know how to work it. Coke commercial move over.
our hero, is as sexy as they get. Ms Clare knows how to write 'em.
You do not have to read in order as they stand alone. The friends names link the stories, but the characters really do not. Read the summery and reviews to pick. I am getting all of them as the reader is so good.
WOW! AUDIO is the way to go here! That voice.....it's quite swoon worthy!!!
It was another great I-Team book! I love them all!
Can't really choose
I had alot of reactions! All good!
Great story....Awesome narration!
