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, suspisions 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.

Please note, this is the first book review I have written. I just had to write something because of my disappointment.
I bought this book because I thought it might be a good book. I was told the writer is similar to Nora Robert (not much, but similar), but goodness this book was terrible. It drags, one of the main characters is probably the worst example for a women.
Ahhhhh, I am so frustrated. I was so excited when I bought it. But alas no, it is so disappointing. I don't even know what to say.
This is the first Krentz book I have bought and I truly did not fall for it - with the characters or the storyline. Stark is too dry and unemotional, and Desdemona far too willing to overlook that fact or should I say she is just generally too willing.
Ugh. Such awkward writing. There was no heat, no wit, and no heart. Lots of telling, no showing. The whole dramatic Wainwright family and its supposed traits were so annoying. And if I am to be reminded of the Wainwright theatrical or familial ties, their ideals and idiosyncrasies one more time I was going to scream.
Ughhhhh, so frustrated.
"Light Hearted and Funny"
I would as it made me laugh. Romantic comedy is one of my favorites.
Walking in on an intruder with your date while the intruder attacks carrying the sex toys gifted to you by your cousin.
No... He did pretty well.
I laughed constantly.
I am a fan of JAK so this was an automatic download for me and I wasn't looking for Shakespeare - it is what it is. It was an easy-going, enjoyable, funny, lighthearted romance that I enjoyed listening to and if you're looking for that type of book then this is for you.
Worth a credit? I love her work so it's a Yes from me.
no even though the story was good the reader's voice just didn't quite fit the characters in my opinion.
Stark, he keeps you thinking about his characters personality.
older, clear, dry
no but a chuckle now and then.
A good story but the reader's voices did not quite fit some of the character's. They all seemed old when they were not.
"Took Me A While..."
I generally prefer female narrators for romance stories so it took me a bit to adjust to the narrator. Males don't usually do a good job with female voices, but once I got into the story, none of that mattered. It character had a clearly defined voice, a plus. I love Jayne Ann Krentz books so it would take a really horrible narrator to ruin the experience.
I didn't realize this was a revival of a 1986 book. I agree with other reviewer...don't waste a credit on it. There was NO C"HEMISTRY between the hero and heroine. It was just lame. This is one of those plot books where no effort was made to convince the reader to buy into the premise. The author is just cranking out another book because it's required. I like Jayne Krentz, I'll just be more careful of what I buy!
None. A waste of a credit!
This was only the 4th book I have read by JA Krentz, others were good this one bored me to tears. Narration was sleep inducing!
I enjoyed reading this book more than I thought I would. It showed venerable parts of a strong man with out making him weak.
"Trust Me is a Classic"
There is a reason that some novels and movies are classics rather than just old. While Trust Me is mostly a light, humorous story, the characters (main and supporting) are well developed, unique and engrossing.
With only mild language and sexual scenes, the budding romance between Desdemona & Stark was sweet & sassy, She was smart and assertive, which Stark seemed to appreciate and respect. A great escape from grim reality without seeming like a fairy tale.
The narrator's voice, while pleasant and entertaining, is too old (over 55) for a book featuring main characters in their late 20s or early 30s.

Fun and interesting cozy mystery plus erotica. Two very different people meet over the demise of his wedding and become entangled in many ways. I really enjoyed the fun, and the characters are absolutely delightful.
Richard Ferrone just doesn't seem like a good fit in this one even though I think he is a very good narrator.
"i love Jane!"
No matter the story line or time period, it is always a good book when JAK is the author. this one is no exception. The secondary characters are also enjoyable. Definately a good read/listen, trust me.
