Not my cup of tea.
There was a lot of child trafficking, abuse, rape.
It wasn't necessarily in full gory detail but somehow did not leave a good after taste ( )

Listened to audio narrated by Kaleo Griffith.

This book just did not work for me. I did not like how Katherine's Native American upbringing was presented, nor her as a reporter. Katherine comes across as a naïve, and superstitious. She's suppose to be an investigative reporter but when she receives threatening calls she doesn't record them (like every reporter in the previous books have done?). She often comes across as a young adult, with a lot of unrealistic idealism you don't expect from a reporter or a Native American that was raised on the Reservation.

Gabe isn't very likable most of the time either. He's a man whore, talks about getting tail and a woman's muff, etc. While he has acts of heroism and I'm sorry he was hurt and betrayed it doesn't excuse his poor treatment of women as his sexual release toys. Only at the very end does any redeeming qualities come out and try to turn all that is negative about him around, but it is too little too late for me and a sorry excuse for his behavior.

Honestly I was so caught up with the issues I had with the main characters that it completely pulls away from the story, the Native American history and the problems they face. I did like learning about the Native American beliefs and practices and some of their issues.

Once again a great book in this series. Loved Kat and Gabe and their story. This one was a little less suprising than the others, since it turned out I wa right about the quilty one. But still a really good book :) ( )

Naked Edge
4 Stars

Synopsis:
Following a number of incidents and attacks on Native American land, Navajo I-Team journalist Kat James teams up with park ranger Gabe Rossiter to investigate the causes. As the case heats up and Kat and Gabe's passion for each other intensifies, they both become targets for an enemy who will stop at nothing to prevent them from getting to the truth.

Review:
Another hit from Pamela Clare.

The suspense plot is clever but could have been better developed in terms of clues and evidence. Nevertheless, the story is engaging and the information about the Native American culture and rituals is very well researched and contributes to the overall atmosphere of the book.

Clare is skilled at writing realistic characters from all walks of life, and Kat and Gabe are an exceptional example. Kat is intelligent and knows what she wants while Gabe is tortured and must come to terms with events from his past if he is to move forward with his life. When the two come together, the result is nothing short of explosive.

The secondary characters are interesting and the cameo appearances by characters from previous books is wonderful, especially the rapport between Marc and Julian, which left me with a smile on my face. As in the previous books, the epilogue is also very enjoyable and provides a strong sense of closure.

Clare's book are action packed and exciting. I recommend reading the series in order although they can be read as stand alones as well because each book focuses on a separate couple and crime. Looking forward to Breaking Point next.

Long and drawn out story, starts off really slow but it was written well. True to life character representations. There was a nice sensual feel to the romance once it got started. The suspense/mystery angle could have been more dramatic, more on the edge of your seat, and the story could have been shorter. ( )
