From the Back Cover: When Desdemona Wainwright tries to collect a much-needed payment for catering Sam Stark’s canceled wedding reception, she encounters not a heartbroken suitor, but the steel-willed head of a multimillion-dollar consulting firm with the cold brain of a computer — and the finely hewn body of a medieval knight. Sam sees a beautiful, theatrical hoyden with huge turquoise eyes who has the right professional catering skills he needs for his business. Opposites attract, and before long, he’s sure he’s found the perfect business wife; but Desdemona intends to break down the walls around his heart.
When someone tries to steal his top-secret computer program, suspicions center on the people Desdemona holds most dear. As sinister intrigues swirl around them all, this unlikely pair discover that their love and even their lives may depend on emotions and bonds that can’t be measured — like unstoppable passion and unbreakable trust. Filled with fabulous fun, tingling suspense, and a wonderful new love story, Trust Me is great entertainment.
My Thoughts: I don’t think I have the words. Jayne Ann Krentz definitely knows how to do chemistry. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and could hardly put it down.
Desdemona Wainwright runs her own catering company. She meets Sam Stark on the day of his wedding, when he is left at the altar. Desdemona takes him under her wing and introduces him to her large theatrical family who also happen to work for her in the catering business between acting gigs. The attraction between the two is almost instant ~ granted he doesn’t notice her right away, but it only takes a month before he makes his move (and what a move he makes).
The story pretty much revolves around Stark and Desdemona’s relationship, and also about the basic family relationship ~ Desdemona’s with her large, close-knit artistic family; and Stark with his small, dysfunctional one. The mystery that is hinted at in the book jacket doesn’t even happen until 2/3 the way through the story and then is tidied up before the last chapter. Which is fine with me ~ I’m there for the romance.
I’d say this is a Very Good read. I couldn’t put down until I was finished. This was my first Jayne Ann Krentz book and I’m looking forward to reading more of her stories in the future.
(Yay – that makes two in a row!)
