If you liked "I got you babe" then you will love this book. This is Alex's story and his realisation that the girl he was resposible for getting kicked out of the police force years ago, is his true love - but will she forgive him.
Also if you have read the first book then its good to hear about the other family members again - looking forward to the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great continuation of a fun series 19 April 2013
By Meialy - Published on

This is part of the DeMarcos series and is the story of Alex, the most by the book, stubborn and frustrating brother of them all. The Demarcos brothers had a very difficult father and each of them responded very differently. Alex responded by being uncompromising and hard as stone, as is clear in the two previous books. I hated him in the prior books as he was a know it all cop who never saw gray. In his book, he finally finds himself in a difficult position where he is accused of a crime and needs help. Enter Valerie. She is the complete opposite of Alex, relying in her instincts and living in a world of grey. She also hates Alex because of past events and I totally understood why. The passion between the two is compelling and, as always with Jane Graves, the bedroom scenes are HOTTT! What was greatest about this book was the chance to see Alex humbled by his situation and vulnerable with Valerie. Se takes none of his crap and he definitely becomes like able by the end. I found myself rooting for him. Note: this is book 3 of 4 so it helps to read them in order but it can stand alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Read 18 Oct. 2002

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Alex DeMarco walks into the Blue Onion bar to have some beer, play some pool, and try to forget that he have had one rotten day. Then he stumble into a woman with a mission of sex with red hair, red dress, red stilleto heels, and she clearly won't take no for an answer. Despite all of his instinct shouting "No", Alex drives her home anyway. Then she turnes up dead and Alex finds himself as the prime suspect. And the one who will seal his fate as the murderer is the woman who despise him the most.
Valerie Parker is a PI working to find evidence of a cheating woman. The problem is, the cheating woman is now dead, and the suspect is the man that she swore never speak to again. Val once loved Alex DeMarco, until one night, he made love with her only to break her heart and shatter her dream the next morning.
Alex pays Val a visit to find out everything she know. Then somehow, Valerie get shot and Alex has a feeling that it must have something to do with the fact that she is the prime witness. So now, they both work together to clear his name and protect her life from the real murderer. As they work together, the also find out that the old sparkling attraction they have five years ago is never really gone.
I love this book! I have been waiting for its release since I got my hand on Renee and John's (Alex's brother) story in "I Got You, Babe". Alex made an appearance there and I couldn't wait to read his own story. Alex is a very tough guy. Some of his friends joke that he is Superman. He intimidates a lot of people, except Valerie Parker. She is a smart and independent gal who drives him crazy all the time. It's very sweet to see Val challenges Alex every step of the way, arguing with him, and to see how Alex realizes his feeling for her despite all that.
Jane Graves also put a sweet story of the secondary character Stanley and Glenda. Although, the only DeMarco family appear here beside Alex is his youngest brother Dave and his cousin's wife Brenda (Brenda always put a smile to my face). I hope this is not the end of The DeMarcos. I really want Dave to have his own story ... He's a single father and also a patrol cop. His story will be very interesting.

This is the book where you discover that Alex DeMarco actually has a heart. For the tough member of the family he was the one you thought would find it difficult to find his one. Ok so the little case of a murder that he looks to have been guilty of committing, won't stand in the way of the one woman who he could actually love and shock horror she loves him back, getting in the way of hot juicy make up sex.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Tough Guy's The Target! 17 Jun. 2003
By Jana L.Perskie - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alex, super-cop, tough guy, rigid-with-the-rules, heart of stone, DeMarco is caught half-naked in the bedroom of a married woman. She is lying dead on the bed, nude, with signs of having been asphyxiated during a session of kinky sex. He pleads not guilty. No one listens...including Private Investigator, Valerie Parker. She had been hired by the woman's husband, who believed his wife had been cheating on him. And all Val saw, from the bar where Alex met the now dead lady in question, to the house where they returned together, was Alex and Mrs. Corpse - no one else around who could have done the deed.
Now Alex & Val have a history with lots of baggage. He was her superior officer when she was in training at the Police Academy, five years before. She was a wild lady who broke too many rules and got too creative with the solutions to be a good cop - so Alex believed. He decided to recommend her dismissal from the Academy. The evening before she was to be told bye-bye, in a meeting with the Lieutenant and Alex, Alex decided to tell her personally. He thought it would be less painful. So he dropped by her apartment, they had wild sex, he left her sleeping in the middle of the night...and he never told her. The next day, at the meeting, she learned she was no longer a police cadet - and she totally flipped out. Wouldn't you?
Val doesn't really believe that Alex, a stickler for the rules & Mr. Control Freak, would commit murder. All evidence to the contrary, he is a basically decent guy. But, no one else was with the victim at the time of her death - and Val knows because she was surveilling the place. When someone takes a shot at her, however, she really begins to believe that Alex is innocent. So Val & Alex wind up taking off to find the murderer.
Adventures ensue, i.e., wild animals, an attack by a Bengal Tiger, a burning barn, an "almost" rape by a sadistic ex-con, some terrific sex, etc., and we meet some interesting folks along the way, including a goofy deputy sheriff who means well but can't make a right move. Who said the path to love was easy, especially when facing a 20 year sentence for manslaughter.
I enjoyed this sequel to "I've Got You Babe." Alex was so hard-boiled in that 1st novel, that I really looked forward to reading more about him. There had to be a softer, more vulnerable side. But this book is not as fast-paced as Ms. Graves's first attempt. And the characters are not as endearing as John and Renee. The action does pick up midway through, and the romance gets passionate - but it just doesn't rate 5 stars.
