4.0 out of 5 stars Nora is the best!!!! 4 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Convincing Alex" was a cute book about one of the Stanislaski siblings. Alexi is tall, dark and handsome and a member of the Police force. Along comes Bess McKnee, little rich girl working on a new plot for her soap opera. She decides to use Alexi as her next mission. Alexi does not find Bess amusing at first, but soon warms up to her a lot. I can hardly wait to read the "Stanislaski Sisters."

4.0 out of 5 stars 4th in the series 8 Jun 2008
By D. K. Stokes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alex Stanislaski is a cop. Bess McNee is a soap opera writer. They meet when she's researching--posing as a prostitute to make sure the character she writes is realistic.

This one had things I really liked & things I really disliked about it.

The whole first chapter was fun, and really set up the characters. Bess was so excited about her research that being arrested and in jail didn't bother her at all.

I thought the story line with Rosalie, the prostitute, was well-done, and heartbreaking. I wish we'd have seen a little more of what happened to her, though.

It was so much fun to see Nick & Freddie, when you know the next book's about them.

What bothered me about the story was that the conflict between Bess and Alex was his double-standard. At several points in the book, sometimes on the same page, he's cruel to her, telling her he doesn't want to hear her say she loves him because he won't believe her, and then he'll mention how he was such a ladies' man.

More an attitude for the 50s or 60s, IMO---he said he didn't expect her to be a virgin, but that's exactly what he expected. Possibly that was pointing out his old-world origins, but I still think it was overdone. It just wasn't a big enough conflict to cover the whole book.

I think it would have been a better book if Bess had been in danger.... although Nora may have been trying to avoid that cliche, which seems to happen in nearly every book where the hero's a cop, so she gets points for that. Maybe if Alex's objections to getting serious with Bess included her research---if he thought she didn't really love him because she was just using him for research---instead of focusing on her 3 or 4 (depending on who's counting) engagements.

Still, I did thoroughly enjoy their story. Bess was a wonderful heroine. By which I probably mean that she accepted the dangers that go along with falling in love with a cop. I've read far too many heroines who start relationships with cops, then call it quits because they're afraid. Perfectly reasonable, of course, but it gets old when you read it in book after book. And I get so annoyed--they're like people who get this fabulous house really cheap because it's right next to the airport, then complain about the noise. Bess knew Alex was a cop, and she didn't ask him to change, or punish him for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars story of alex 26 Aug 2003
By pdxbeautiful - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The fourth book in the Stanislaski series....Here you meet Alex...tall and dark and a tough street cop who happens to arrest Bess...an undercover soap opera writer posing as a hooker....
The sparks fly between these two...Bess....with her past of ended relationships and Alex...who can't seem to trust...
A great story but I prefered the first three books more than this one...It had some murder in it which I didn't care for but was part of the overall story about Alex and his police work!

I am an avid Nora Roberts/J D Robb fan, but this book was predictable and lack luster. This was one of a very few that I have read by Nora Roberts that I struggled to finish.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK Read, Good Series 15 Sep 2011
By Terracotta Dove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fourth of six in Roberts' Stanislaski series, the warm-hearted, hot-blooded and gorgeous Ukranian-American family.

This was my least favorite, primarily because I didn't care for the hero. He has always been the least featured of the siblings, and I didn't think he really brought anything noteworthy to his own story. The heroine was engaging enough, and I liked her work as a soap opera writer. I didn't really buy their HEA, because if nothing else, the end proved he really doesn't know her that well.

Also, while Roberts does an incredible job as JD Robb now, at this point in her career (and probably the fact that this is "only" a Category Romance), the cynical cop tracking down a serial killer didn't really play for me.

But as always, the large family scenes and the various relationships and interactions were pure pleasure, and I look forward to the next book.
