Review

As a marriage proposal, it was lacking, but as a business proposition, it was definitely worth considering. When Cormick first suggested that he and Amber get married, Amber thought her boss was joking. They had the perfect working relationship, but there was definitely no passion between them. But the more Amber thought about the idea, the more it made sense. After all, she had had enough of passion--her last relationship with a sexy race car driver had crashed and burned in a most spectacular manner--so why not marry someone she trusted and respected? What Amber doesn't realize is that Cormick wants the real deal; he isn't about to settle for a polite marriage of convenience. This is vintage Krentz, both in that it was first published in 1993, and in that it showcases the elements that have made her so popular, her sharp wit and flair for sexy romance and wonderfully entertaining subplots, such as the one in this tale involving the collected works of a long-lost poet. --Booklist, 15th September 2009 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

If you haven't yet read this category length novel originally printed in the mid-eighties, definitely get it. This is Krentz at her laugh out loud, wittiest best.
Amber Langley moves to Seattle (where else in a Krentz?) in an effort to leave her former life behind. Six months ago, she broke up with Roarke Kelly, a race car driver she had had an intense, passionate affair with. Determined to never again be a prisoner of her tempestuous passions, she agrees to marry her mild, plodding boss Cormick Grayson for completely sensible reasons. Little does Amber know, Gray is really a Superman in Clark Kent's clothing...
This book has some of the best one-liners Krentz has ever penned. The relationship between the protagonists is right on target, the sex is hot, and the comedy is classic JAK. Don't miss this one while it's still in print.

As a long time Krentz fan I have always found this book to be a favorite re-read. The heroine and hero are wonderful--the story of sleeping beauty is always a favorite and this heroine is definitely emotionally in deep slumber. But, what really sets this story apart is Jayne's terrific invention of the western poet Twitchell. The bad poetry is hilarious and yet just enough "off" to mimic real western poetry from the likes of Bad Bart and other 49er era poets.
The denouement with the cheating ex-boy friend getting the fright of his life is hilarious--a fun book that is high on my comfort shelf.

The storyline is very typical of Ms. Krentz the tall dark and handsome business man and the shy and reserved woman. It may be typical but it works.....Amber marries her boss for convience after all they get along so well and the boss Cormick says he marries her because they like each other but of course he's head over hills but knows she's weary of relationships. What they have together works with a lot of laughs, intrique and warmth. You finish reading this book and wish them the best.

I found this book to be kind of frustrating for a variety of reasons.

<Spoiler Alert>
At the beginning of the story we have the hero, Gray, proposing a "friendship" marriage to the heroine, Amber. Amber goes on and on about how she's not a passionate person and doesn't want anything more than a quiet, respectful relationship with Gray. Then, immediately after they get married she starts basically throwing herself at him and getting extremely frustrated when he doesn't have sex with her. In short, she does a complete 180 as soon as they say their vows.

Meanwhile, Gray, who has secretly been in love with Amber for the last three months and deliberately got her into this marriage as part of his plan to unlock her hidden passion, decides that the best thing to do with his suddenly sex-crazed wife is to give her the cold shoulder and repeatedly remind her that their honeymoon is actually just a business trip for him. It just doesn't make sense. And this issue was compounded by the fact that we as the reader spent almost no time in Gray's head after their marriage. Prior to the wedding we get a glimpse of his perspective but once they go on their honeymoon, all we see is Amber's frustration and Gray's super-cold act. It really would have helped to read about him desperately warring with himself over whether or not to sleep with his new bride or suffering sleepless nights as his body ached to hold her, etc. SOMEthing to let us know what was going on in his head.

We got some line in the beginning about how he wanted to be patient and wait for her to desire him, not just feel she needed to do her "wifely duty", but it just doesn't make sense. On their wedding night she practically begged him to have sex with her and he turned her down.

This book showed up on my list of recommendations a few days ago, I semed to remember the title, and when looking on my book-shelf, it was there, I re-read it last night, and it was worth it!
The book is witty, funny and as we have begun to expect from JAK a story of the meeting of opposites.
The general storyline (dont worry I dont go past about page 8 in this!) is a woman marrying her boss and their way to a good relationship.
The funnies in this story is the semi-serious conversations about bad poetry.
There is suspence involved too, but this I will not tell about, you can read it yourself.
If you didn't get it last time it was published , it is worth your while. But do check your shelf first!

This has been reprinted several times and I find the book not to be dated as some of the other JAKs. It is a charming tale of a women who married a man because he is safe. She had a stormy relationship with a race car drivers that left her want a nice peaceful relationship. She gets that chance when he boss says they should get married. He says they work together well, there is no reason marriage cannot work. At first, Amber is unsure, but thinks it will work. But she soon finds her marriage is much more than a matter of convenience to them both.
When you add in some terrible poetry written by an obscure cowboy, the dialogue is JAK at her best.
A gentle gem.
