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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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!
When you add in some terrible poetry written by an obscure cowboy, the dialogue is JAK at her best.
A gentle gem.
