    Hard to put down!

    Jonetta's review Oct 28, 11  ·  edit

    Read from October 26 to 28, 2011 - I own a copy

    Tessa Novak is an I-Team reporter with Denver Independence covering the cop desk. On her way home from work, she stops at a convenience store and becomes a witness to a murder of a young girl, moments after she pleaded for help. Tessa is determined to use her position to help find and expose the girls killer, even if it runs afoul of police efforts. Julian Decarangelo is an undercover federal agent who has been working the territory that involved the murdered young girl.

    It doesn't take long for Tessa and Julian to cross paths and the attraction is mutual and electric. Of course they butt heads because of their respective work roles but their relationship heats up in spite of their differences. Tessa is gutsy and clever and Julian is hard-driven and gorgeous. They both are very attractive characters who have their share of personal baggage and it was interesting to follow the progression of their relationship. There's a lot of steam here and you're going to salivate over Julian.

    The case is one that is brutal and difficult to absorb. There are a lot of exciting moments that will accelerate your heart rate. There were times when Tessa's decisions were maddening and ill-advised but at least you could rationalize her behavior, though her behavior sometimes bordered on the "too stupid to live" edge. I was also able to figure out who one of the culprits was fairly early on but it didn't interfere with my enjoying the story.

    I'm really liking this series and planning to continue.

    Great!

    This is the second book in the I-team series and, like the first one, it is an exhilarating ride full of suspense and romance. The main characters are very well developed and their romantic connection is as explosive as the thriller that develops in parallel. I could not put it down until I finish it. A terrific read!

    Must read

    This entire series is wonderful! I absolutely love this one with its very moving story of tessa feeling responsible for not preventing a death when she honestly couldn't have. She then chooses to attempt to bring light to the whole event and circumstances of the murder through her articles. That brings her directly into the middle of darcangelo's investigation. Throwing them together creates sparks that soon turn to a flaming hot love story. I highly recommend this one and the entire series!

    Hard Evidence by Pamela Clare

    Well. Yet another author for my 'must buy' list thanks to all my buds on Goodreads.com. Pamela Clare blew me away with this tightly plotted romantic suspense novel that will get your pulse rate moving in more ways than one.<BR/><BR/>Investigative reporter Tessa has always fought for the underdog. And when she sees a young teen blown away literally before her eyes, she decides to do what she does best...investigate. Before long she's hip deep in danger and lust with undercover agent Julian. But when Julian needs her to keep a lid on what she's discovered, will she understand or be willing to compromise her journalistic integrity? <BR/><BR/>Loved, loved, loved this book. As soon as I finished it, I quickly dug out the first one from the 'to be read' mountains and devoured that one as well. Now it looks like I'll have to order the third one since neither my local B&N or Booksamillion has it in stock. If you like romantic suspense that's believable and smoking hot...you really must read Pamela Clare.

    I am a huge fan if all Pamela Clare novels, and this latest one didn't disapoint at all. It was a fast-paced, sexy, and facinating read that had me hooked at the first page. The general subject matter of the suspense portion of the book is about human trafficing -- specifically that of underage girls. It's not for the faint of heart, however the author did an excellent job of giving you the facts without going out of her way to gross you out. Tessa is my favorite kind of heroine -- she's smart, sexy, self made, and girly without being prissy. The hero, Julian, is driven and sexy, and you just can't wait to see the two of them get together. This book is going on my keeper shelf along with all my other Pamela Clare books, and I will be eagerly waiting for her next book!

    No Exposure in this book .

    I loved her previous novel Extreme exposure to the point I put this release on my calendar. It does not come close. But I liked the main story behind human trafficking of young girls.

    She just keeps getting better

    I LOVED Extreme Exposure but I believe that Pamela Clare has taken it a step further with Hard Evidence! You will fall head over heels in love with Julian. Tessa is a tortured heroine with lots of spunk! Julian is a true tortured hero with a ton of sex appeal and the ride Pamela takes us on as they become whole and happy is like the best roller coaster ride youÕve ever been on! There are moments so touching you will cry and then laughter will lighten the mood and of course the love scenes are to die for. The villains are so dark and bad that you want to ÒSEEÓ them pay for their crimes, as always Pamela makes sure we get to watch everyone get what they deserve. All these make it one of the best books IÕve read this year. Anyone who hasnÕt read PamelaÕs work, all I can say is get to the bookstore or online and pick up ANY of her work, itÕs ALL GREAT!!

    EXCELLENT book! Intense, Intelligent and Passionate!

    As much as I love romantic suspense, I believe Pamela Clare¿s contemporary novels deserve a sub-genre of their own - perhaps something like ¿Romantic Ficumentary?¿ I say that, because the fiction she writes feels so incredibly real, it could easily be confused for a documentary. Yet, the intensity and the passion in her stories make them oh-so-very entertaining, that I can hardly put the books down before I¿ve read them cover-to-cover............... Hard Evidence is a richly crafted story, which tugs on a number of emotional strings. Heart-wrenching childhood misfortunes, undeniable reality of human violence, the struggle between ethics and instincts, pulse-raising passion and sizzling sensuality are some of the reasons this book is a must-read! The unforgettable cast of characters is perhaps the icing on the cake............... Tessa Novak, an investigative reporter for Denver Independent, is a high profile murder witness, determined to shine a light on the apparent violence taking place on the streets through her writing. Trying to sidestep the danger her life is in, she hopes to get to the bottom of the investigation of the murder she witnessed. Unfortunately, the man she initially suspects to be the killer, is an undercover FBI agent, whom she could inadvertently bring out of the shadows¿............... Julian Darcangelo has spent what feels like most of his life trying to bring down a major human trafficking empire. As he is closing in on the trail, Tessa becomes a hurdle in more ways than just interfering with his investigation. He is furious with her and attracted to her at the same time............... Tessa is just as attracted to Julian, but refuses to give up investigating him or her work on the case. Armed with the knowledge that Tessa means something to Julian, the killer renews his grudge with an ever growing violent determination............... The hardest part of facing the danger their lives are in, is trusting each other, something neither Julian, nor Tessa, is certain they can do¿................ Sometimes I find the lack of first hand knowledge or adequate research on the subject of a book (i.e. Navy SEALS, Army Rangers, etc.) so apparent on the writers part, that the book becomes distracting and even silly at times. The fact that Ms. Clare is an investigative reporter in real life, and has first hand knowledge of the things she writes about, adds to the intelligence and believability of the book. I say BRAVO Ms. Clare! and wholeheartedly recommend this book!

    Denver, reporter Tessa Novak stops for coffee at a gas station when a hysterical teenage girl rushes inside pleading for help in Spanish. A car drives by shooting the girl through the window. She dies in Tessa¿s arms. Though stunned Tessa notice the man in the leather jacket who she believes is the killer, but is gone before the police can react. Former FBI Agent Julian Darcangelo cannot believe the witness spotted him though he is not the killer instead he is undercover as pervert Dominic Conti.------------------- Tessa provides a detailed account to include describing whom she assumes is the culprit: Julian. Meanwhile he hopes to finally catch master criminal Burien who escaped a sting three years ago because the Fed tried to save some young female civilians at the cost of two agents and a wound to his then lover Margaux. This time he allowed the innocent to die so as to not interfere with his obsession to stop Burien before other teens are kidnapped, abused, and killed. Julian frightens and warns Tessa to back down before kissing her she asks who he is and he insists he is a good guy. As he struggles to keep her safe and catch the bad guy, they fall in love, but a betrayal leaves their lives in jeopardy.------------------------- This a superb romantic suspense starring a courageous intelligent hero who has to work the case because of guilt over not being able to help the teen who died in her arms and a dark protagonist who never expected to fall in love. The return of characters from the previous novel EXTREME EXPOSURE and the rest of the support cast especially the Denver Police Chief add depth to the exciting story line. Though the motive for the betrayal seems a stretch, fans will appreciate this strong thriller.--------------- Harriet Klausner
