Another good read. Dragged a bit in the middle. Wanted Becca to get her head out of her arse and stop being so melodramatic and wondering if there was a "reason" behind Rich's every move.

ah-mazing book ! really loved it its kinna like a mix of " A Girl Like You by Gemma Burgess and Perfection (A Neighbor from Hell #2) by R.L. Mathewson if any one of these happen to be in your fav !!! u need to add this book NOW

seriously from the plot to the main characters...everything was fab ! the only reason this book lost a 0.5 star from me was because of the annoying secondary characters....otherwise outstanding.

and for RICH AND BECCA.....

Rich Ronaldi is the ultimate hunk. He is tall, dark sexy and Italian. In addition that he is smart. Rich works as a Professor at the college. You would think he had it made. Well you would be wrong. Rich has just been dumped by his girlfriend, Gina. She tells him that he isn’t relationship material and he needs to start cleaning up after himself. Rich takes Gina’s words to heart. He will do anything to get Gina back even…become Mr. Clean.

My only complaint is that there was not epilogue. I am pretty sure this is the last book in the Domestic God series, and it would have been nice for a little closure. But that certainly does not diminish how much I liked this book.

Since I read the first story of Nick and Rosalie, I have been a fan of Ms. Kayes. This book, IMHO, is another feather in the cap of a funny and talented author.

Her characters are real with flaws and insecurities they don't always know how to dea

Becca is a very talented artist that comes from a wealthy family. All she wants is to make a name for herself in the art community, without the help of her family name. She needs a place to stay for a few months while the brownstone she purchased with her brother, Mike and sister in-law, Annabelle is renovated. She walks into an apartment she is renting in the meantime to find Rich, in his naked glory, just getting out of the shower. Rich is Annabelle’s brother, and Becca has definitely noticed ...more

After the first several chapters in this book, the idea of putting it down and starting a different one came to me a number of times. I’m one, however, who doesn’t like to not finish a book. And in this case, am I glad I didn’t succumb to that original thought.

During those first chapters I kept telling myself this is a plot we’ve read before. Over and over again. Hero and current girlfriend break up before a big to-do he needs for his career, gets heroine to help him out, they fall i

Loved it! This is my first Robin Kaye book (yes, this is part of series and I haven't read the first two) and can't wait to pick up another! This story was cute, funny and incredibly sexy!
Both Rich and Becca have issues. It's what make them who they are. Rich is an alpha male and Italian to boot. Becca is extremely wealthy and doesn't trust the male species not to just be after her money. So, when they find out that they both have to occupy the same apartment for a while, they have to come to s
I really enjoyed this light, sexy story. Becca Larsen has just moved to New York from Philly to try to launch her art career without family help. When she arrives at the apartment she has sublet from her brother and sister-in-law, she finds Rich Ronaldi already in residence. She can't stand the guy (her BFF and new SIL's brother no less), but boy is he hot! When Rich's girlfriend breaks up with him just as his boss is pressuring him to become more of a family man, he enlists Becca's help to beco ...more

The third book in the series followed the path of the first two. It's nice to see now the two previous couples are doing. And their psychic aunt is a hoot.

I have to admitted, this book is more powerfull than the two last books. Even if im so inlove with the 2nd book, but... this is more sweetest... Oh, I love it.
The romance between Rich Ronaldi and Becca is written with very nice detail
It is so far away from the two last book
So far so great, and feel so entertained.

Of the new authors that I've tried for the past week, this is probably my favorite. I was only at the beginning and I know that I like the book. I enjoyed Rich and Becca. I love their bickering, their exchanges. I love the other secondary characters as it also built up the story. And this is what I like about the male lead wherein we found out early on that he loves her but he doesn't become sappy. =p

And now, I'm looking for Robin Kaye's other books ;)

Rich Rinaldi Italian Stallion – Check; College Professor – Check; Domestic God – Fail!

In Breakfast in Bed, Becca Larson gets the goldilocks treatment one day when she returns to her New York apartment to find someone’s been sleeping in her bed and making a mess in her bathroom and he’s still there in all his wet-ass naked gloriousness getting out of her shower. Wait just a minute, this tall, dark, hot Italian looks familiar, once she raises her eyes above his neck level. Rich Rinaldi

To date, this is the most recent novel written by Robin Kaye. This book was great. I felt it had the right mix of drama, comedy, romance and conflict to keep me very interested. It also had a little meat to it, so although it wasn’t a long read, it read quite quickly–I definitely had trouble putting this book down when it was time to go to bed or work.

This is the third book in the Domestic Gods series and I found it to be very light, funny and cute. These boys are not only hunks but know their way around the house.

Rich Ronaldi is different than Mike and Nick (the heroes in the first two books), in which instead of being a Domestic God he’s a man who relies on his mother for his cooking, cleaning and laundry. He is stuck in a predicament. His girlfriend breaks up with him, because he is not relationship material, but he’s suppose to have dinn

I really loved Kaye's debut novel, Romeo, Romeo. Her second release, Too Hot To Handle, didn't work for me at all. So I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I'm glad to report it was much better than THTH, though I don't think it worked as well as RR.

I think the best part about this book is Rich. His antics as he tries to learn to be more domesticated often had me laughing out loud. Part of me was a little skeptical that a man of 34 didn't know how to do anything for

Becca and Rich are in quite the predicament. It seems they will have to share the same living quarters for a while. Rich thinks that it might be the perfect setting - since he asks Becca to help him become more of a "relationship material" type of man. He solicits her help in learning to cook, clean, laundry - all in the hopes of getting his ex girlfriend back. Now Becca is more than happy to help - since she sees this as a way of speeding Rich's departure from the apartment they are sharing. Bu ...more

Robin Kaye continues her Domestic Gods Series with Annabelle Ronaldi’s best friend Becca Larson and a serious twist in her domestic gods in the form of Rich Ronaldi, who may be a god but isn’t a domestic one.

Ms. Kaye’s humor shines from the start when Becca, Miss prim-and-proper-ice-princess, takes her baseball bat and confronts the Sicilian version of a Greek god, Rich in the shower. Things then become like an old time romantic comedy with both characters living in one apartment.

I often wonder, what would men do if women disappeared off the face of the planet? True enough, there are some men that can take care of themselves fairly well, but it has been my experience that most guys really need their women to help take care of them. Robin Kaye shows us one such man in BREAKFAST IN BED and man is he hilarious.

Rich is your classic hunk; he’s also your classic guy. Unable to cook or clean, he really doesn’t have much outside of his curb appeal to attract any form

Only one comment left during reading: "Hhahaha Robin Kaye is funny! This is my first book from the author but I suppose it won't be my last. I'm already falling for the guy, he is incredibly sweet. The girl is cool, ok, I don't have special opinion on her yet except that I'm wondering why is she trying to act as she doesn't like him? I suppose that there is a reason and I'll find out all about it later..."

This was my first Robin Kaye book and I’m very happy I decided to pick it up. "Breakfast in Bed" is the third book the Domestic Gods series. Sometimes when you jump into a series mid-way through, you have a tendency of feeling in the story. That was not necessarily the case here. Not having read the first two books did not hinder my enjoyment of this story, although it did make me want to learn all the details about the secondary characters, hence making me want to pick up the other two books.

He's just moved in to his sister's furnished apartment after she got married. Only problem, she was subletting the place to another person who then su ...more
