This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

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...

Critic Reviews

"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)

Great Romantic Suspense

This was a well-crafted and very suspenseful romantic thriller. It definitely quenched my thirst for a romance book that wasn’t just about sex (or some sort of BDSM). There’s nothing wrong with a good hot and steamy romance book, but sometimes I need a little more story or action to go along with the “steam”.

Hard Evidence is the perfect mix of romance and suspense and it will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This particular story does hit hard with the realism of human trafficking and at times it made me angry that this is really happening in the world. However, this is romance so there is a HEA. And of course the good guys prevail in the end.

4.5 star listen! Love the I-Team Series

Julian Darcangelo, well, WOW!

Would you listen to Hard Evidence again? Why?

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 . . .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hard Evidence?

“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 . . .

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yep, you betcha, but couldn't do it-life happens, and I had to listen in bits and pieces---arrrrgghhhhh!!!

Any additional comments?

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!

Get this series!

I loved the first book in this series and book 2 definitely delivered! Another member of the I-Team embarked on a dangerous investigation that takes the listener on a wild and sexy ride once she encounters special agent Julian Darcangelo. I love a good male character, and Darcangelo---well, get the book and just take him all in! He's YUMMMMMY.

The narrator's characterization of Tessa was a little strained, but, it didn't detract that much. I think he's really best suited for male characters, as he does an excellent job of narration for the various males in the story. I'd recommend this bookto anyone that enjoys romance with action--I'm a devoted fan of the series for sure!

The Perfect First Digital Audiobook Experience

The last audiobook I listened to in its entirety was in 1988, as I process the written word better than I do the spoken word. I read the the currently available I-Team books last year, and have followed the publishing progress of the audio books closely. After listening to the samples of the talented Kaleo Griffith I decided upon the second book in the series mainly because I was most interested in how he voiced Julian Darcangelo. I was extremely pleased with his interpretation of Julian and the rest of the characters. If I were to be critical, my least favorite "voice" would be that of Tessa's. The Southern U.S. dialect is a tricky one for me. Kaleo's delivery did not irritate me at all, but I didn't look forward to hearing Tessa the way I did the other characters. I read the book in June 2012 and as with all of Pamela Clare's current works I appreciated each aspect of it. After listening to samples of some of my favorite "reads" I didn't find another narrator who I wanted to start out with more than Mr. Griffith. His narrative voice is so clear, rich, and resonant; his cadence was perfect. I've read some reviews in which listeners felt the need to increase the speed of the audiobook; that was NOT an issue with this book at all. I thought Kaleo handled the stammers, pauses, and character changes beautifully! Also, being that these I-Team books are steamy as well as suspenseful, I *really* appreciated his handling of the racier parts of the book. Oh yeah, VERY nice! Overall, I was SO pleased with this first real audiobook experience that I have already bought books 1,3, and 4. I'm sure I'll have 5 and 5.5 before too much longer. I think I'll always prefer reading, but with proven reads being narrated by such talented artists as Kaleo Griffith, I think it's safe to admit that I shall end up selectively enthusiastic over audiobooks as well.

A Man That Knows How to Work It!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

good story with a bit of mystery. Very investigative type of story line. Dialogue better than average.

What did you like best about this story?

Great reader, Kaleo Griffith....whoa what a great sexy reading voice. He is making this series.

Which scene was your favorite?

when the 3 men paint the Trim, and know how to work it. Coke commercial move over.

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

our hero, is as sexy as they get. Ms Clare knows how to write 'em.

Any additional comments?

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.

Suspense and Romance

What made the experience of listening to Hard Evidence the most enjoyable?

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!

What did you like best about this 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.

What does Kaleo Griffith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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!

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

I laughed, and felt heart racing fear, at different times. Loved the romance.

Any additional comments?

Recommend this series, and applaud Kaleo Griffith on his performance.

I’m really enjoying this series!

This series has been pretty dang entertaining. It has just enough action, mystery, drama, romance and heat😉! The Hero is a bad ass Alpha male that’s not afraid to grab a handful of hair when they....(you get the picture) The Heroine is caring and giving but also stubborn and determined. It adds up to lots of sparks that eventually combust! Just go ahead and add this to your library, you won’t be disappointed!

This Second Book Was Worse Than The First One

This will be the last book I ever read by Pamela Clare. Her books are just too corny and the characters are ridiculous.
