Breakfast in Bed will charm, delight and satisfy; yet another stunning release from Robin Kaye.”

Book Description – From Amazon.com
“Rich, the epitome of “anti-domestic,” can’t cook to save his life, and his idea of cleaning his apartment is to invite his mother over. But he’s ready to settle down, and he can’t stop thinking about the ex-girlfriend who got away. When he notices that his soon-to-be-married friends cooked and cleaned their way into their women’s hearts, he asks his friend Becca to help transform him into a nurturing man to win back his ex. Rich is the only guy who’s taken the time to know Becca for herself. She decides she’ll give him the makeover he’s asking for, though she’ll be damned if she’s going to turn him into a domestic god for another woman. She wants Rich for herself, but how can she convince him that her kitchen and her bedroom are the only domestic locales he desires?”

What can I say? Robin Kaye’s stories keep getting better and better! As usual, the male characters are deliciously yummy domestic gods…or in Rich’s case…a domestic god in training. With well-developed characters who are unique and all too human, Breakfast in Bed will seduce you with its sincerity. As with the first two books in this mouth-watering series, Rich is an alpha male to the core, though he can still get in touch with his feminine side if he has too. Tall, dark and sex pretty-much sums him up! He’s also loveable, a little too self-absorbed and a disaster in the kitchen. Rich seems like an arrogant womanizer at first, but he grows on you really quickly because he’s so darn cute. Rebecca Larson is unlike any woman he has ever met. Becca is strong, independent, standoffish, petite and blond; the exact opposite of the women that Rich normally dates. When Rich and Becca butt heads over who is the rightful tenant of their new apartment and Becca gets sucked into teaching Rich the “domestic” basics, things really start to heat up. I love the way that the story flows and how it includes the main characters from the first two books; Robin Kaye keeps the story fresh by injecting humor and real, honest-to-goodness humanity into her characters. My DH is a domestic god (in training) who reminds me of Rich at the beginning of this story; eager to please but all thumbs at times!
If you enjoy reading contemporary romance, do yourself a huge favor and pick-up this 3-book series for yourself or a friend; you’ll have hours of reading enjoyment ahead of you. These stories will make you laugh, smile, blush and feel good about the possibilities of finding Mr. Right. 
I very highly recommend this book!!

Too Hot To Handle is simply magnificent; contemporary romance at its best!”

 Product Description – From Amazon.com
“He sure would love to have someone to take care of…  Dr. Mike Flynn’s single mom taught him early how to cook and clean, and there’s nothing like vacuuming or doing dishes to help a guy relax. Annabelle Ronaldi is an artist without a domestic bone in her body. Since her fiance’s death, she can’t paint, and life looks hopeless.
Until the day after her sister’s wedding, when she wakes up with Mike next to her in bed, and then she’s really beside herself – because the handsome stranger is a dead ringer for her dead fiance.
After their mind-blowing one night stand, Mike is sure this is the woman he wants to take care of forever, but she acts like she’s seen a ghost. While Mike sets to work wooing Annabelle, she sets to work sniffing out the truth of the convoluted family secret that turns everybody’s lives upside down.”

Too Hot To Handle is the second book in this series; Romeo, Romeo being the first and I reviewed it here. I enjoyed Too Hot To Handle even more then Romeo, Romeo but I highly recommend that you read them in the proper order. This love story flows smoothly with creative twists and turns that are captivating. Mike and Annabelle are a match made in heaven but they don’t know it yet. I literally fell in love with this story and I was amazed at how quickly I became engrossed in their lives. I was so moved by their struggles, both in love and life, that I was brought to tears several times by the exquisite agony of their heartbreak and the poignant sadness that flowed off the page, right into my heart. Robin Kaye has an impressive talent for writing vivid love stories that feel very real to her readers; its as though I was inside the book, living their lives and going through their experiences with them. I hate to say it, but I am really envious of Robin’s writing abilities; she has captured the very essence of each character and squeezed every last drop of humanity out of them onto the page; she has bared her character’s heart and soul to her readers. I can’t even find the words to tell you how much I love this book! The sex/love scenes are written with tenderness and a beautiful, flowing sensuality that sizzles with heat; the sex scenes are remarkably realistic and they are some of THE most titillating that I have ever had the pleasure to read in the romance genre. There is some swearing in the story but it is used to express heightened emotion and it increases the story’s momentum.
I very, very highly recommend this book to all contemporary romance readers and anyone who wants to fall into a beautiful, sensual love story.
