OMG! There are not enough stars to give this book!! Simply put, this book was A.MA.ZING!! OMG, I am simply reeling. I don't know how I am even going to write my review for it because it was so good...how could I possibly give it justice?!? Wow! full review to come...


Full review reposted from my Smitten with Reading blog...
My Review:
I don't even know how to start this review...this book was soooo incredibly good!! We all have a weak spot for bad-boys, but Marc is the most deadly of his kind...one of the ones that never planned to be a bad boy. He just had a horribly crummy set of circumstances and there wasn't anything that he could do about it.

Marc & Sophie had one night of amazing passion 12 years ago. She was 16 and he was 18 and it was a night that neither of them was ever able to forget. It was the night before he left to go into the army and they haven't seen each other since. But after he got out of the army (where he was a highly decorated spec. ops sniper,) he became an agent for the DEA. Something went very wrong and he has spent the last 6 years in prison serving "life without parole" for killing a fellow agent at point-blank range with 3 shots to the chest.

Sophie has no idea what happened to "Hunt" after their one night together. She is now an investigative reporter for the exclusive I-Team for the Denver paper. She has been working on a story about Megan Rawlings, a former drug addict who had a baby in prison and is turning her life around...which is the first bit of mystery for this story when Megan inexplicably kidnaps her baby and disappears. What Sophie doesn't realize is that her Hunt is really Marc Hunter and that he is Megan Rawlings brother. She has been given a tip that Marc Hunter may be able to help her locate Megan, so she goes and visits him in prison. All Marc knows is that Megan and the baby are in extreme danger and he has to save them, so he uses Sophie's visit as a means for escape and this book hits high octane power from there on out.

One word permeates the feel of this book when you are reading it...desperation. Marc doesn't want to make the choices that he has to make, but he's desperate. He can't let Megan and the baby die. He doesn't want to endanger Sophie and does everything in his power to protect her. There is a desperate feel to the story and their relationship, because it doesn't seem like there is anyway for all of this to end well. Marc admitted to killing Cross and even without that, he has since broke countless laws starting with breaking out of prison and kidnapping Sophie. There is no going back. There is only "now" for Sophie and Marc...and that gives the entire story a desperate level...both in their passion and despair.

This book is FULL of action and suspense from page one on. Reading it, I could actually feel my blood pressure and heart rate ratcheting up throughout the entire book. I could not fathom how Pamela Clare was possibly going to write this book so that everything ended up okay. I cannot even explain to you how good this book was. The suspense was A.MA.ZING! The passion was SIZ.ZLING! The love story was HEART-BREAKING! I bawled my way through the last 1/4 of the book. Then the epilogue...PER.FEC.TION! And then I cried some more.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

You need to read this one. You don't have to have read the other 2 I-Team books to enjoy it, although they are good books and the characters are re-curring so it certainly doesn't hurt. AND I wasn't a huge fan of Tessa and Julian in their book (book #2), but I have completely changed my mind. In this book, they were AWESOME, esp. Julian. I am going to have to re-read their book sometime and give them a second chance...
