Best part - amazing narration
Worst part - mediocre lead characters Kara and Reece. For a smart newspaper reporter, Kara made some really dumb choices like not getting child support for her 4 year old son, not taking death threats seriously, and not using condoms before getting health tests.
I thought Reece was too rough, arrogant and bossy, not respectful or considerate. He practically raped Kara in a snow bank (cold & windy is so not sexy), and kept saying what he wanted and needed without ever asking Kara what she wanted.
Kara, starved for emotional and physical affection, allowed Reece to barge into her life, taking control and issuing orders. I don't understand the appeal of "alpha males", who often become violent, aggressive and abusive toward women.
Pamela Clare is a talented writer; if she wrote about stronger females and less selfish male characters, her books would be amazing.

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!
