Yours for the Taking (Domestic Gods #4)
He might be too good to be true...
Ben Walsh shouldn't be single. Handsome and wealthy, Ben is equally at home in Idaho where he grew up and in Manhattan where he's now an art dealer. Suave and successful with impeccable taste, he normally has women beating down his door. But the one woman he wants can't be convinced that he's for real...
She isn't sure if she has time fo...more

Why I Read this Book: Just from reading the book blurb, I knew that things were not going to go according to plan and that things were going to get complicated. And I was looking forward to reading about it. Yours for the Taking is the 4th book in the Domestic Gods series but can definitely be read as a stand alone. I have not yet read any of the other books in this series and I had no problems following the story. More than anything, it makes me want to r ...more
This is the fourth book in the Domestic Gods series, but I promise you dear book-OCD people, it works wonderfully as a stand-alone.
Gina is as he calls is a fiery little Latin pixie. She is sure stubborn, and she is used to taking care of herself. She doesn't need help from anyone. Ben is the perfect man, so she believes he is gay. Because he can dress (well not in Idaho she finds out), he can cook, and he is everything a man should be. He needs a wife, she doesn't want to marry, but ...more
Ben is a cowboy at heart, but also a Manhattan metrosexual who enjoys women...lots of women, just without any complications. His grandfather, a wily though manipulative loving relative, has given Ben a short period of time to marry, otherwise his grandf ...more

This started out as a great book and then somewhere along the line it just lost me. The unusual circumstances that bring the 2 main characters together is amusing, and I enjoyed them from the previous books. The story was moving along fine, and although Gina, the h, over thought everything, it was developing into a sweet romance…and a hot one at that. Then in steps the grandfather, who I never really found to be endearing, just manipulating and crass with ...more
Both characters were introduced in previous novels. Gina is just a bitch who won't listen, won't forgive and won't give in. Ben won't stand up for himself and tell his Grandfather to stuff his ultimatums. I didn't really like either character, but I actually disliked Gina. Not ...more
And then there was Ben's family - taking Gina's side to such an extent that they would stop speaking to him. I don't know h ...more
Out of the series I think "Yours for the Taking" was my favorite. I have to say though I felt this was a different Gina and Ben than who was introduced to us in the beginning books. To me, this was not the same Ben who tickled Belle on the couch to annoy Mike or the same Gina who was a total bitch to Rich.
The story was great and Robin Kaye did a great job of setting up the book to start another spin off series with Trapper, Hunter, Karma and Fischer. As my friends know I lov ...more
The story was about Ben Walsh, a buff, handsome, tall, dark, rich and successful man who needed a wife in order to save his land from being sold by his grandfather. Hence enter a distant friend of his, Gina the curvaceous latina. They agreed to be married in name only and treated it as a business arrangement.
That being said, ...more
Plus, she thinks he’s gay.
The marriage-of-convenience trope still works, even in contemporary novels like Robin Kaye’s Yours for th ...more
Ben is perfect - he is wealthy, a good cook, and a dog loves him. I'm sure there are other good things, I just can' ...more

What makes is just okay to someone who is a HUGE Robin Kaye fan? The heroine, Gina, she was an annoying bitch who was just downright mean most of the time! I didn't like her in the previous books she was in either. At times I wished that I could call her and tell her off! I know crazy, right? There was absolutely NOTHING I liked about her. Ben deserved so much more than her. Don't get m ...more
Gina was street smart and successful on her own. She had grown up hard and had pretty much raised her little sister. Even though her sister was now married, she had a hard time not w ...more
