Extreme Exposure

Novels such as Carnal Gift and Sweet Release made Pamela Clare's rising star shine Now she turns her impressive talents to a novel of modern romance and breathless intrigueIt's been years since her child's father dumped her and since then Kara McMillan has kept men at bay although every day she aches for a lover's touc. My reviewI ve read Pamela Clare s Historical Romance series MacKinnon s Rangers highlander novels Surrender and Untamed and loved them both so when I heard that she had a romantic suspense series I was pretty sure I d enjoy them as well and wow was I ever right Now my biggest dilemma is do I plow through the rest of the books one after the other or pace myself Extreme Exposure is the first book in the suspense filled I Team series The I Team is the investigative reporting team at the Denver Independent newspaper made up of Tom Trent Editor in Chief Syd Wilson Managing Editor and journalistsinvestigative reporters Kara MacMillan Matt Harker Sophie Alton Tessa Novak and Joauin Ramirez Now most of the romantic suspense books I ve read are about military police firefighters etc so I had no idea that a reporter investigating a story could be so exciting and dangerous This story focuses on Kara MacMillan and Senator Reece Sheridan and when I bought this book I had no idea that it revolved around a newspaper reporter as the heroine and a good guy politician as the hero Another something that is different is that in Extreme Exposure it s the female lead who s taking risks making enemies and living dangerously That s not to say that Reece doesn t have his own fires to put out and enemies to escape because he most certainly didI ve never really given much thought to what an investigative reporter actually does so I appreciated the detail and the insight we re given into what happens on a daily basis with meetings appointments interviews etc and I also appreciated the way that it was done Usually I feel that the first book of a series suffers from what I affectionately call F BITSs First Book in the Series syndrome where there s so much character introduction and world building that we re lost in page after page of data resulting in information overload However Ms Clare did this in such a way that we were actually inside those meetings watching what transpired what needed to be done next and listening to the interactions I much prefer the authors who show us by allowing us to experience it rather than tell us what happened after the fact It keeps things from becoming boring and lecture esue Another thing I was glad to see was how Kara juggled her career and her family namely her son Connor a four year old bundle of dynamite Connor s father had abandoned them as soon as he learned that Kara was expecting their child so everything she had to do was done alone as a single mom There was nothing glamorous about Kara s life and she worked her tail off to be the best she could be as both a journalist and a mother She struggled at times and her choices were not always easily made This is what real life is like for a mom who wants a career and who also wants to raise her child herself without relying on nannies and babysitters to do it for her Kara was fortunate enough to have a loving supportive albeit uirky mother Lily who was than willing to step in and help when she wasn t attending demonstrations and sit ins sans shirt and bra Yes you read that right topless And I ll just toss this in real uick her mother made for some fun times and interesting relationship storylinesThe glimpse into the life of a Senator in this case one Reece Sheridan was uite enlightening Maybe if I had paid closer attention in high school civics it wouldn t have seemed uite as fascinating nevertheless it was Reece didn t really have any other responsibilities other than his senatorial duties and it s a good thing because they took up most of his time It was educational but not boring Now Kara and Reece had known each other from press conferences and interviews that kind of thing But they happen to meet in a bar one night and Reece was immediately interested while Kara wanted to keep things professional Well until she d had three margaritas and was chatting him up about oral sex which made for a pretty funny scene I enjoyed the way their relationship progressed Kara was trying to keep a safe distance and Reece wasn t giving up but he wasn t being all pushy alpha male either In fact he d given Kara a ride home from the bar that first night and when in her tipsy state she d rather blatantly propositioned him his reply was Not this time Ask me again when you haven t had three I really admired the integrity with which they both performed their jobs While it s easy to imagine that all politicians are crooks Reece was not He had been a high school US Government teacher and had given a very passionate speech to his students about the need for citizens to become involved in government When his students challenged him to run for Senator he did and he won It was important to him to show his students that you in fact could be a politician and be honest at the same time While he was doing his time at the Capital building he always planned to return to his true love teaching knowing that he d be learning very valuable lessons which he could then use to educate his students in a way text books never couldI suppose we don t too often read about crooked journalists at least I don t So it wasn t too terribly shocking that Kara wanted to do everything by the book In all her reuisitions in all her dealings and interviews every t was crossed and ever I was dotted There were times when it was annoying as hell when I wanted her to be able to just hurry up and get the bad guy but she was being true to her profession and her ideals I couldn t fault her for thatThere were a few great uotes and scenes and this was one of my favorites Very slight spoiler Her labor had been so much easier and faster this time with the pain overwhelming her only toward the very end But then her mother and Reece had been there to help her through it together with the midwife and Reece s sister Melanie who d become a good friend Holly Tessa and Sophie whose job it had been to entertain Connor during Kara s active labor returned at the last minute just in time to watch the actual birthReece whose love had sustained her through the last excruciating hour had been the one to catch Caitlyn With the guidance of the midwife he d eased their daughter from Kara s body Then he d looked up at Kara through eyes filled with tears a look of amazement on his face It s a girl Kara would never forget that moment for as long as she lived even if in the next instant she d overheard Holly tell Tessa and Sophie If I ever have a baby I m going to have a Brazilian wax first Keep it pretty you know Honey when you ve got an eight pound object coming out of your cooter the last thing you re going to care about is how it looks had been Tessa s reply End spoilerOverall I found this to be a surprisingly well balanced story There was action and suspense sex drama romance sex passion intrigue mystery sex oh did I mention there was a lot of sex And it was hot sex too vanilla but hot And I don t feel like it overwhelmed the storyI m so so pleased to have found this variation on the romantic suspense theme something other than macho male warriors and can t wait to read the next bookThe I Team reading order so far1 Extreme

H But to get that the hard boiled journalist must become vulnerable a feeling she vowed never to have againWith his dangerous good looks charm and power Senator Reece Sheridan could have just about any woman he sets his piercing eyes on But he's intrigued by only one This Kara this gutsy investigative reporter has a se. 45 starsIt s such a great feeling to re read an old favorite and still find it to be a winner It s sad to say but lately very few new books can keep my attention so I decided to revisit an oldie and I m really glad I did The last time I read this book was over 2 years ago and reading it again now reminds me why I ve always considered it and this series to be one of my all time favorites It just hits all the right buttons The characters are very mature and there s hardly any relationship drama the mystery was well concocted while the suspense kept my attention and the amount of romance and steam was just right But most of all it s the uality and depth of the story that just really gets to me There s a journalistic feel to the book which I loved It didn t make the story preachy but at the same time I still feel like I learned something The author was an investigative journalist herself so a lot of the newspaper jargon and methods are drawn from personal experiences which just made the book feel so authentic The I team series focuses on a group of top notch investigative journalists who are the best of the best all specializing in a specific news area This first book is journalist and single mom Kara McMillan s story The stories she covers all have to do with the environment and her latest piece is exposing a potentially corrupt company for harmful waste disposal that breaks environmental standards I like smart complex plots that make me think and so even though Kara s investigation is pretty detailed it worked well for me I also really like how well rounded her character is While she s working Kara gives off this hard unrelenting vibe but when she s with her son she becomes unguarded and relaxes She s pretty much perfect in my eyesThen there s the hero Reece Sheridan who s a state senator If there s one thing I remember about this author s books I ve read all her books is that she always creates these memorable and extremely honorable heroes At first I was a bit wary about Reece because I mean he s in politics and realistically speaking there aren t that many politicians you can wax poetic about But Reece is really different Not only is he not corrupt he s one of those very rare people who entered the world of politics for all the right reasons to promote change that benefits society and its people In a way I feel like his character pokes fun at all the greedy single minded politicians out there today While I did think his interest in Kara was too sudden I didn t mind because neither Kara nor Reece were looking for random hookups so their relationship still progressed at a believable pace From the start Reece was all in and even though Kara was being indecisive at first I understood why Unlike Reece she had her young son to consider her past abandonment issues to work through and just the whole journalistpolitician dynamic put pressure on both of them I liked that while there was drama there was nothing dramatic about it and all issues were resolved in a mature respectable manner And through it all Reece stood firmly by her side defended her protected her pampered hergah So who cares that he was a bit too perfect and the love was instantaneous Give me an honorable good hearted hero and I ll waive all my usual complaints away The one thing that did bother me though was when Kara s 4 year old son asked if she and Reece were having sex and that just rubbed me the wrong way In context of the book it was meant to be funny and I swear I did laugh but it was the uncomfortable kind of laugh I mean the kid is FOUR and he knows what sex is Hmmm I docked half a star for that but in no way did that affect my enjoyment of the book overall This book was steamy well researched and really well written Since I ve read the other books following this one I can tell you this is a series that gets better suspense and romance wise with each new book and I m already getting giddy at the thought of revisiting the other wonderful I team heroes and their leading ladies If you re looking for a new romantic suspense series to fall in love with definitely go with this one Extreme Exposure is the 1st book in the I team series and is a standalone Each book will have a main character who s a
