Publisher's Summary

Midwestern librarian Letitia Thornquist didn't have the right stuff to run Thornquist Gear, Inc. That was the bottom-line opinion of Joel Blackstone, the seasoned CEO who had built the small Seattle sporting goods store into an industry giant. But Letty's rich Uncle Charlie willed her the company, and now she was bubbling with enthusiasm to have Joel, a perfect mentor, show her the ropes.  

Teaching her the business was all Joel grudgingly planned to do... until the sensuous curves under Letty's navy suit and the unabashed desire in her wide, innocent eyes left him longing for a personal kind of merger. Soon his sizzling kisses convinced her that she wasn't in Kansas anymore. But no matter how skilled Joel was in the art of love, Letty knew she was at risk in his arms. Behind his tough facade she sensed a world of hurt that cried out for her warmth and understanding. 

She realized the "L" word might never be spoken if trust didn't make them perfect partners 9 to 5.... and in the loving after-hours of midnight to dawn. In a witty, classical duel of romance and ambition, Jayne Ann Krentz deftly portrays two fiery opposites caught by an irresistible attraction...in a deliciously spicy tale of life at the top and love in the depths of the heart.

Brasts and bads and sax, oh, my!

In spite of anything JAK did right, the choice of narrator completely ruined this book for me. Her annoyingly affected accent yanked me out of the story over and over again. What were the producers/directors thinking? An audiobook should be about the story, not indulging a narrator's speech impediment. Plus, for her own good, someone should tell her that she's forcing her voice to a lower register than it should have. Painful to listen to and not doing someone whose vocal cords are her life any favors.

The book. This is one that I particlarly like from her older books. The smart, shy yet sassy heroine. The overbearing hero who has to learn that he can't always win and doesn't need to. The tug of war between them, although very real, is shaded with humor. If you want an angst-filled read, this isn't for you. If you want a fun and romantic and well-told story, give this book a try. Although, I"d advise you to read the book rather than basing your judgement on this poorly narrated audiobook.

all in all

all in all this was a good book not great but good. i dont so many people who talk as these characters did in this book. i love characters who are more realistic and i understood where the author was headed so i didnt mind. besides that the banter between leti and joel was nice to hear over all.

The Perfect Patsey

Love Jayne Ann’s books,but not so crazy about this specific genre of hers.Her books on alchemy are so much more entertaining and just reading her books are so much better than how the narrators portrayed .It was ok.

An old favorite reborn!

This is one of my favorite JAK books. Thre story is now somewhat dated, but it still has the aspect that I love the most: 2 very different finding both respect a CD love. The excellent and varied narration brings it to life in a new way.
