Publisher's Summary

The brightest, sexiest romance yet from the New York Times best-selling author of Grand Passion and Trust Me.

Unconventional Molly Abberwick, trustee of her late father's scientific foundation, is mad enough to fire her new consultant, Dr. Harry Trevelyan. A brilliant expert on new inventions, the handsome Harry irritates Molly to no end with his preposterous insistence that they have an affair - and that it could be planned, predicted, and run like a science project. But just when Molly is ready to let him have a piece of her mind - not her heart - she discovers that the eminent Dr. Trevelyan is not what he seems.

First, there is his family, a long line of carnival folk who run the Smoke & Mirrors Amusement Company. Then there are the paranormal premonitions which bring Harry to Molly's side when she most needs him. And when her troubles escalate into violence and a mysterious stalker threatens her life, Molly turns to Harry's sixth sense for help, and discovers she needs Harry not just for a week, or for an hour, but forever in love.

With this sparkling new love story, Krentz works her magic once more for an Absolutely, Positively wonderful new romance!

    "Absolutely, positively a good listen"

    This is the story of a Harry, a sexy Science Professor, who has been hired as a Consultant by Molly to advise on the worthiness of new inventions to receive a grant but the trouble is he's more interested in Molly than the inventions. Harry is, initially, only interested in a brief no string attached affair coupled with that he is gifted with ESP but is in total denial of his abilities.

    It's funny, lighthearted, a sweet listen but with a good plot that has a few twists to it and you just can't help liking Harry.

    Worth a credit? Yes, if you're after an easygoing romance.

    Story
    "Absolutely a Good Listen"

    Molly is intrigued by the unconventional Harry. Harry has come up with a scientific plan to seduce Molly. Molly’s father was an inventor who finally hit it big with one of his inventions, upon his death he leaves instructions to set up a foundation to fund up and coming inventors. Molly hires Harry to weed out the unscrupulous ones, and to recommend the ones that have a sound scientific basis. Harry irritates Molly because he hasn’t approved anyone, claiming they are not scientifically sound. In the meantime, someone begins to harass Molly in the hopes of her turning the day to day administration of the Foundation over to someone else. The harassment takes a murderous turn leading Harry and Molly to try to find out who is harassing her, while doing this amid the myriad problems besetting Harry by his family. I really enjoyed this story, it was fun, had love scenes that weren’t explicit and a whodunit.

    Story
    "New narrator improves the listening experience"

    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys well written, early 90's, romances. This is an excellent example of Jayne Krentz romantic suspense; ... probably not anyone's choice as the best book she has ever written, but definitely a very good one. Characters are well defined and the behaviors are plausible if you accept "impulsive", but imperfect, heroines.

    The first audio version of A-P did a disservice to the book. This Richard Ferrone version lifts it back into my personal "audiobooks I enjoy listening to again" list. (I do have all of the Krentz audiobooks except the 4 recent Stephanie James releases, so I have some basis for the assessment.)

    This is not a book of memorable moments or can't put it down suspense. It is a light quirky tale of the adventures of a likable "wanna be a detective" young woman and of the family company CEO that the family wants her to marry. It serves as a setting for some fun characters. Ferrone gives us those characters clearly and in the spirit it that Krentz apparently wrote them rather than turning this into the sound track of a movie.

    Ferrone has a fairly distinctive style. It's an enjoyable style, but it can overpower the story in a rapid succession of books that you do not expect to be similar. I suspect it works well with series books where you expect the characters to sound like they did in the last one you listened to, but it can be wearing after too many unrelated titles.

    I have the three Krentz novels that he has done and I would rank them as:

    Trust Me - six stars, the book is perfect for his strengths and he hits a grand slam home run with it.

    Absolutely, Positively - a 3.9 star text performed extremely well to boost the book toward 5 stars.

    Grand Passion - a 4 star text with a good but not great reading.

    Story
    "I really, really wanted to love this. Sigh."

    I have been on a major glom of Krentz's backlist and have really enjoyed them. I have not found this at a UBS so I thought I would use one of the credits that was burning a hole in my virtual pocket. Not such a great idea.

    First, I enjoyed the book. It is what you read vintage Krentz for. Strong angst-filled hero with dead family members by the seeming score but yet still enough family members remaining for heaping spoonfuls of guilt to be applied daily. There is always at least one young male family member that sees him as a father figure. Never female, always male.

    Next, our heroine, just as strong but more of the get-it-all-on-the-table sort. She, too, has family drama, almost always female, both older and younger.

    Oh, let's not forget the tea. There is always tea. This time, our heroine owns a very successful tea shop.

    So yeah, if you love this era of Krentz, you won't be disappointed.

    Now, the narration. I love Richard Ferrone...with a different style book. He has a strong voice. But it is not a romance voice. It is not a voice that does the female characters well, especially if there are multiple females to be voiced.

    There were multiple oddly placed pauses. I don't know if these were editing issues. I don't know if they were paragraphing issues. There were long breaks between chapters, but the unexplained breaks seemed even longer.

    Pardon me while I pull out my soapbox. What were TPTB thinking to let a typo remain on the cover of this audiobook that was reproduced for Audible. Seriously, even if (and I say if) the actual book cover has a typo, it needs to be corrected. And in this case, the typo is egregious. They have misspelled "Krentz" on the cover blurb. Come on, people. Give me a break. "Krantz at her insightful and entertaining best" should not be on the cover of a Krentz book.

    Putting soapbox away now (knowing full well I have angered the typo gods and fully expect to see a glaring typo in this as soon as I hit send).

    Will I keep this book? Probably. Do I wish they had cast the narrator better? Definitely.
    Will I continue my Krentz glom? For sure. Will I get another Ferrone-narrated Krentz? Gosh, I do hope not.
