Format: Mass Market Paperback
To some romance readers Jane Graves might be better known for her Harlequin titles under the name of Jane Sullivan. I GOT YOU, BABE is her first single title release and it is a very sexy, witty and funny debut.
On the run from the police and one mean bounty hunter, stuck with a broken down car, no money and no spare clothes, Renee Esterhaus needs to hitch a ride. And what better way to do it in the middle of Texas than offering a country hick a long and hot night of mind-blowing sex; too bad that the guy is John DeMarco, not a farmer, but a tough and edgy cop on a forced vacation.
I GOT YOU, BABE is a fast paced story laced with constant action and sparkling dialogue. It had me in giggles from the first page and groaning in embarrassment more than once. Minor characters add, in their over the top mannerisms and stereotypical behaviour, more than enough comic flavour. They might not be deep but definitely very entertaining.
I really loved this book. I loved it for its not-so-perfect heroine, for a hero that is trying so very hard to appear tough only to fail when around his chosen lady and for a sexual tension that is not just based on good looks but on trust

This is one author I will be watching out for and so should you!

Classic premise – a fugitive on the run from the law inadvertently runs into instead of away from the long arms of a cop. In this case the fugitive is Renee Esterhaus, and she’s running because she’s all but been convicted of a crime she didn’t commit. The evidence is pretty much against her, as well as her own juvenile record, and Renee doesn’t see any other solution – she has vowed never to do jail time. John DeMarco is the guy she propositions in order to get a quick ride (no pun intended) away from the bounty hunter who momentarily captures her. Eventually John finds out who Renee is. From a long line of cops, John cannot simply let Renee go, no matter how appealing he might find her personally, and he sets out firmly intending to take her into custody. But ultimately he finds himself, if not convinced of her innocence, at least with some doubt to her guilt. Knowing that the system will indeed process her without digging any deeper, John has a decision to make. To get involved in the case – breaking the law he is there to uphold, or to do his duty.
It might be a archetypal basis to a story, but in the telling Graves has created a very enjoyable tale with distinct and believable characters. The sexual heat between John and Renee builds up naturally, and is told without redundancy but to great effect. I liked that Renee was able to acknowledge her past mistakes, that she was unprepared and essentially unable to execute running away from the law (Graves did not invest her with any unlikely specialist knowledge or luck on new identities etc).

I bought this book as it was recommended by Amazon (if you like this book, also look at this book..) and it was an excellent read. You have to forget the plot, which is completely unbelievable but that aside it is funny, touching, with quite a lot of action and the kind of book that you want to get to the end of. I think this is the first book by this author and I would certainly buy more. She has a nice light hearted amusing touch.

I also bought this as it was recommended by Amazon (previous buyer bought this..) and was pleasantly suprised. The concept sounds ridiculous but the characters are very well developed and believable although I was concerned that when John still handcuffed Renee to the bed after their night together the story was going wrong. However, it all turned out nicely and Im sure I will buy Alex's story when it is published soon.

A very clever plot, clearly written with many 'believable' twists.
Thoughts and feelings are analysed in such detail that allows the reader to get involved with Johns's and and Renee's rush of emotions and the process of falling in love with one another.
I'm already looking for Jane Graves's next book
