Format: Mass Market Paperback
Texas police officer Dave DeMarco and his brothers had been in a bar when news of a plane crash in Mexico came on the television. Dave was stunned to see the pilot was Lisa Morrison. Lisa had been a former high school bad girl. In fact, he felt guilty about something from those long ago days and had told Lisa that if she ever needed anything, call him!
The news reported Lisa had died in the crash. Imagine Dave's surprise when Lisa called him that night from Mexico with a wild tale of drug smuggling, her plane being sabotaged, and everyone (including the local Mexican law) trying to kill her! Dave thought Lisa was delusional from the crash. But a promise was a promise, so he was off to Mexico. Turned out Lisa was completely sane and now everyone wants them BOTH dead.
**** This one is a fast paced adventure with a lot of hot love scenes. It is spicier than hot tamales and packed full of danger and intrigue. Well written and with secondary characters that you can not help but care for. Author Jane Graves has another winner with one. ****

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Graves does it again! 25 Feb. 2004
By mahikahn - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Dave DeMarco lost his wife 4 years ago in an auto accident. Even though he was in love with Lisa Merrick in high school, he married Carla (you'll find out the reasons why in the book).
One night Dave gets a call from Lisa. She is a pilot who was flying a humanitarian mission and uncovered a smuggling ring. She's hiding out in Mexico and needs Dave to come help her get out.
The characters were likeable. Poor Dave, all that he'd suffered in silence. As close as the family is it's amazing that they never had a clue. Lisa was the school "bad girl" but all along she was just trying to survive her horrendous family.
Great book! I've read the first two in the series "I Got You Babe" and "Wild at Heart" and this was a terrific third!
5.0 out of 5 stars Hot DeMarco family 10 Aug. 2013

This family is awesome, I would love for them to have cousins so you get to see more of this family in print. This is the story of Dave and Lisa. Dave is the stable quite one, the one with a kid who had done the marriage thing, but there was more to that marriage than what the outside world saw.

In the end you can't wait for Dave and Lisa to get together after so many years of being apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Graves does it again--Excellent 8 Nov. 2003
By booksforabuck - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When cop Dave DeMarco gets a panicked call from Lisa Merrick, a woman he hasn't seen in years, he drops everything and flies to her rescue in Mexico. His actions surprise himself as much as anyone. But Dave, a widower with a little girl to raise has a dark side no one suspects, and secrets long-suppressed that Lisa holds the key to. He can't ignore her plea for help.
Lisa Merrick, working as a pilot for a humanitarian doctors' organization, has unwittingly uncovered a counterfeit drug ring. They sabotaged her plane and left her for dead, and she can't get out of Mexico without someone's help. The one person she believes might help her is the man who walked away from her after a steamy kiss in high school--the man who once told her to call if she ever needed anythig.
The feelings between this unlikely couple are obvious from the beginning, but the things keeping them apart are compelling--not the least of which is that neither feels they deserve the other. But more pressing obstacles include ruthless men with guns, a corrupt police department, and a smooth villain who anticipates their every move and neatly sidesteps it.
Jane Graves has done it again with FLIRTING WITH DISASTER, the third in her series about the DeMarco family of cops in Tolosa, Texas. With a fast pace and unexpected plot twists around every corner, Dave and Lisa's story kept me turning the pages with breathless anticipation. The action scenes had my stomach tied in knots, while the sensual scenes had my pulse pounding (and I read every word of them, too, rather than skimming as I do with many love scenes). While the light-hearted humor of the previous two installments is almost absent in this book, it's not missed at all. Taut suspense and deep emotion fill the pages, and after you read this book you'll never think about lime juice the same way.
4.0 out of 5 stars a strong romance inside an action-packed thriller 7 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Tolosa, Texas police officer Dave DeMarco is stunned with the TV news that the girl he loved but did not date in high school Lisa Merrick died in a Mexican plane crash. While Dave privately mourns he is even more stunned when a distraught Lisa calls that night. She pleads with Dave to rescue her insisting the plane she piloted was sabotaged.
Dave wants to ignore her pleas as he raises his daughter by himself. However, he immediately goes to Mexico where he finds an injured Lisa. She explains that the local clinic head Dr. Robert Douglas is selling illegal pharmaceuticals and tried to kill her and her missing passenger Dr. Adam Decker because they found his illegal stash of counterfeits. As Douglas' law enforcement supporters try to stop them, the duo manage to escape back to Texas. When they learn that Adam, thought dead, still lives, they race back to Mexico to rescue him even as their teenage love blossoms into something stronger. If they survive FLIRTING WITH DISASTER will Dave and Lisa act on these feelings?
Fans of non stop, exciting action packed thriller with a strong romantic subplot will want to fly with FLIRTING WITH DISASTER. The story line is fast-paced as Lisa and Dave escape from Mexico twice. Lisa is a strong lead protagonist but though Dave promised to be there if she ever needed him, it still feels like a stretch to call a high school bud. Still the adventures are fun to follow and the lead couple is a delightful pair so that the audience receives a fast-paced tale that showcases Jane Graves' romantic suspense skills.
