Review from Amazon.com: Vintage Krentz (reprint), September 3, 2000
Reviewer: Tina "tinaellorascave" (United States) - See all my reviews
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.

This book was a pleasure to read from beginning to end. A perfect blend of humor and romance.

I guess it's always a bit of a gamble picking up an old title from the 80s or 90s that's been reissued with a new cover. Many just don't hold up over time. But lots of the old Jayne Anne Krentz and Jayne Castle classics (Flash, Trust Me, Wildest Hearts, Deep Waters, Grand Passion, etc) are still witty and fun. Enough that I've collected them again here on PBS and enjoyed rereading them.

Sorry to say it, but this one is something of a howler. As acknowledged, I'm generally a huge JAK/JC fan, but the only good reason to read this book might be technical: here you can see the author just starting to put together the elements of her winning formula. She's honed that formula over the years so now it's just about perfect every time. But this was an early, less-than-successful attempt.

Product Description

A mutually beneficial arrangement . . . with potential for endless passion! - Marrying her boss, prominent businessman Cormick Grayson, was a very reasonable proposition for a woman who'd been hurt in love before. It wasn't love and they were both OK with that. But the heat in Grey's eyes told Amber there was more to this passionless marriage than he was revealing and soon Amber yearned to feel the things she vowed she would never risk again . . .

Amber Langley had married for all the right reasons. There was no passion to break her heart, no love to risk and lose. Marrying her boss, prominent businessman Cormick Grayson, was a very reasonable proposition for a woman who'd been hurt in love before. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement.

At first. But something wasn't right. The heat in Gray's eyes told her there was more to this than a polite, passionless marriage. But Gray's cool, impersonal distance left Amber wondering about the man she'd married.

Amber never imagined she'd be the one demanding more, yearning to feel things she vowed she would never risk again.
