Intellectual Sophia Bennett knew what kind of man she wanted: a rugged cowboy. And in Texas they were everywhere! So why couldn’t she take her eyes off brilliant professor Max Travers? He was a Wizard in mathematics who surely made love by the numbers. Yet every inch of him — no Stetson, no dusty boots — added up to dangerously sexy.
Give it a skip. Its sad when the sex scenes are funny. Everytime the characters start to have sex he begins talking about rainbows(?) and she talks about wizards. Sad. And if thats not enough, the narrator (Renee Raudman)of this audio versi ...more
I thought this might be a fun read, given the similarities of this couple to my personal situation (my husband is a college professor and he's so smart, he can do square roots in his head up to 4-5 decimal points...yes for real.) But this heroine is a snob! She spent all of her first date talking about herself as an 'underachiever' and how she'd never marry a man like him. (If I'd been him, I'd have told her "I don't remember asking you.")

Wizard starts out light and humorous. Sophia Athena Bennett is out on a duty date with professor Maximillian Travers because he is a friend of her parents (all of them being genius mathematicians). Sophia makes it clear to Max that she is only interested in cowboys not wizards/geniuses, no matter what her parents want for her.
Renee Raudman is perfect in bringing out all the best in this story – the humor, the bantering, attitudes, and emotions. Too perfec ...more
What ruined this book was the nauseating over emphasis put on every single word from the narrators mouth. Plus Ashley Aldon got the whole tone of the book wrong! I've read the book many times and the heroine was not a smart mouthed *itch and the hero was not a quiet nerd! But that is what we get with this narration. Instead of the two very confident people finding common ground which is what Stephanie James / Jayne Ann Krentz wrote. An average but enjoyable ...more
The narrator (Ashley Aldon) is absolutely TERRIBLE!
I'd like to think that I might have actually attempted to like the book, but the narration just accentuated the faults. The heroine came out as a total *itch, the hero as a timid mouse, and the plot out-right boring and ludicrous.
Maybe when I forget how bad this narrator is, I'll try reading the booking instead of listening to the audio version.
