Review ~ Breakfast in Bed

Rating 5 stars!!

Robin Kaye is a great new voice in contemporary romance. An auto-buy for me!!

Book Description (from author's website): 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?

My Thoughts: I loved this book! I love this author!! This is the 3rd Domestic Gods book. We have met the hero and heroine in the previous book Too Hot to Handle. Rich Ronaldi is a young professor that has come home to teach at Columbia. Becca is an artist that has moved from Philadelphia to New York to be closer to her best friend and family. Rich and Becca end up subletting the same apartment. One sister promised it the Rich and his other sister promised it to Becca. So now we have total opposites sharing an apartment so you know the sparks are going to fly.
Rich wants his ex-girlfriend back and ask Becca to help him. He thinks that if he becomes more domestic she will take him back and with her back that will help him with winning over his new bosses. Becca is a rich girl trying to make it on her own by moving to New York. The chemistry between Rich and Becca was fantastic. Rich is trying to take care of himself after being taken care of his whole life. Becca trying to deal with all the issue that come with having an absent father, than that father wanting to be part of her life. The chemistry between Rich and Becca was smoking and I love watch these two fall in love, be spilt apart and then brought back together again.
You get to visit the characters from the first two books which was great and fit in the with the storyline. Sometimes when you are reading a series the author will throw in characters from previous books just to make the reader happy. Ms. Kaye doesn’t do this the visits from these characters work great with the story.

If you haven’t pick up Romeo, Romeo, Too Hot to Handle and Breakfast in Bed what are you waiting for!!
