    Review:

         Breaking Point is officially my favorite read by Pamela Clare. I love it. I love it. I LOVE IT. I don't have enough words to describe how good great absolutely mind-blowingly fantastic it is. I thank Ms. Clare for creating such a wonderful series. I-Team, no doubt, is THE BEST romantic suspense series out there. I know I've said it before, but everyone should buy all 5 books, and start reading it right NOW.

         In this book, we meet another I-Team member, Natalie Benoit. Natalie is originally from New Orleans where she lost her family and fiance to Hurricane Katrina. Six years later, she works for Denver Independent and goes to Mexico on a journalist trip with her colleague Joaquinn where she is abducted by a Mexican drug cartel. That is where she meets Zach, who is also captured in a cell next to hers. From thereon continues their journey of surviving from the drug cartels, and crossing the border to go back to the United States. It is definitely an enlightening read. I liked reading about the part where both the characters cross Mexican-US border, and the hardship that comes with it. The journey is terrifying; I was scared for them, and I had no idea that it would be so harsh. Ms. Clare researched really well for that part, and it was so realistic to read about.

         Natalie and Zach didn't meet under the right circumstances, but what they make of it is just so beautiful to read. Natalie is such a strong spirited character. She fights for what she wants, and I love people like her. She was really sweet, kind & caring by nature and just absolutely adorable. Zach, on the other hand, comes from a military background carrying survivors guilt. He was tough, strong, yummilicious, and all in all my favorite hero. I'm sorry Marc, you ain't got nothing on Zach.

         The reason why Breaking Point is my favorite is Natalie and Zach. I feel like both of them were two lost people who were meant to be together. I know how cliched that sounds but it is so true. I felt everything they were going through. I felt their struggles for survival, I felt their attraction, I felt their heartache, I felt their longing for reach other, and finally, I felt them falling in love. All these emotions made me so connected to them, and I can safely say that I'm not forgetting them anytime soon. Some of the readers believe that it was unrealistic for the protagonists' to fall for each other under those circumstances, but I believe that when you are at the edge of your life, then you stop thinking with your brain and simply follow your heart. That's exactly what happened in this story and for me, that makes it much more realistic.

         Breaking Point is another great addition to the I-Team series, and I'm so excited about the next book. It gets better with every book and is something you don't want to miss out.
