Being a devoted Amanda Quick fan, I've decided to look up all her many incarnations. I decided on _Trust Me_ as my first foray into her titles written as Jayne Ann Krentz and was well pleased with the selection.
The characters in this book are amazing -- every single one of them! Desdemona is one of the best romantic heroines I've seen. She is sharp, witty and has just enough edge to make her real. Sam is the perfect counterpart to Desdemona. He is brilliant yet so unsure of himself. He needs love and it is touching to watch Desdemona take him in and teach him about real trust and the true meaning of love and family. He also has the most irresistible tendency to just blurt out exactly what he's thinking. His forthrightness is sexy and refreshing. These two have such explosive chemistry and such witty banter that the pages fly by and soon you're at the end of the book before you've even realized it has begun.
Not only are the main characters remarkable, the secondary characters are great! Desdemona's family -- theater people who are all named after characters in Shakespeare's plays -- are hilarious, charming and endearing. Also, Sam's brothers are cute and early on give you insight to the underlying aspects of Sam's personality.
There is a mystery that comes into play mid-way through the book that drives the plot and expounds upon Desdemona's and Sam's relationship. More than anything though, the driving force of this book is the romance between Desdemona and Sam. Their's is a tender, turbulent love that warms the heart.
_Trust Me_, my first by Jayne Ann Krentz, will certainly not be my last. It is evident that under whatever pseudonym, Krentz or Quick, this lady has talent. I highly recommend this to anyone who has enjoyed work by Amanda Quick or to anyone who is looking for a fresh, enjoyable contemporary romance with memorable characters and a romance that is outstanding!
Good Summer Read!
This story is probably the best Miss Krentz has ever written. I adore this story. It's a keeper on your shelf!
Desdemona is a caterer with a pass, Stark is a man who was left at the altar. Desdemona was hired to cater his wedding but ended up saving it. And when heat started to arise, mysterious things happen. Especially when the person is eager for ARCADE (the software) to kill...
I love this story. The suspense was wonderful, I couldn't breathe when I read the story. THIS IS A BUYER! GET IT!
my first krentz!
This was my first ever Krentz and will surely not be the last.
This is the story of Desdemona and Stark. She watches as Stark is left at the altar but as the wedding caterer, she must get paid for her job. They take a liking to one another and he hires her to do all of his company's business catering as well as his personal escort! They are total opposites! She is from a theatre family that are all very close and help each other and his family hardly sees one another. She lives on emotion and he hates to make a sense!
At one of Stark's company parties, someone tries to steal his security program from his computer. He thinks it's Desdemona's half-brother Tony...she refuses to believe it could be him. So together they will search for the truth.
It's a quick read and I really enjoyed the characters in this book. It wasn't just one or two character but a book full of them....Starks two half-brothers, Desdomona and all of her family...it was nice to read a book with more than just a few characters....A nice change of pace.
