He might be too good to be true...

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 ...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 offers Gina 12.5 million and a house worth 10 million dollars. Ginas not the kind that likes the money ...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 romanceand 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
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 ...more

That being said, ...more

But my imagination fall when Gina, as the heroin, make in love with Ben... The way Gina seduce Him... it is so far away from my expectations
I love the plot, about Gina's childhood, and so interested with it, but somehow, I find so hard to understand...
There is a "missing" plot, and (again) so less of detail
And why so sudden... in their chapter, without any intro, I go there... the part Gina suddenly paid detective to find Raphael...
Ugh... and still no ...more
This is really one entertaining book. I really hope I get to see R. Kaye's books in our local bookstores! I definitely ...more
