She'll be happy to make him over, but not for another woman…

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. 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.....


you guys officially made it to my perfect couple's lists....

highly recommended to anyone wanting a good strong romance read since

Becca’s best friend Annabelle is married to her brother, Annabelle is Richie’s sister. Gina is Richie’s girlfriend; she dumped him because he is not ‘relationship material’. Richie’s needs a trainer so he can win Gina back in time to take her to a ball to impress the dean. So Rich makes a compromise: Becca can stay with him, if she trains him to become a domestic god.

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 deal with. Throw in some hu

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 in love along

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!

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.
Breakfast in Bed adalah buku #3 dari serial Domestic Gods oleh Robin Kaye. Kali ini ada kisah cinta antara Becca (sahabat Anabelle sekaligus adik tiri Mike di Too Hot To Handle) dan Richie Ronaldi (kakak dari Anabelle dan Rosalie, sekaligus teman baik Nick Romeo di Romeo, Romeo). Sedikit banyak mereka sudah ada di dua buku sebelumnya, jadi kalau mau tahu dengan jelas, saya menyarankan membaca series ini secara berurutan.

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.

Rich Rinaldi is a professor who recently began teaching at Columbia, following an embarrassing incident involving the dean’s daughter at Dartmouth
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 himself, but

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

Rich Ronaldi is the golden child of the Ronaldi's. He the oldest and male. He doesn't know how to do laundry, cook, clean, or iron his clothes. His mother has always taken care of him or he had a cleaning lady when he lived too far from him mother.

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.

Yang pasti Richie Ronaldi bukanlah si dewa rumah tangga yg handal (awalnya) dan si becca adl wanita yg terlalu mandiri, pesimis, negativ thinking trs, ga percaya diri&bawaannya selalu tertutup. Kadang gemes juga lihat karakter becca ini. Kok bodoh itu dipelihara yak?

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 of long-ter

Buku ini lebih gokil dibanding Nick dan Mike. Kenapa? Breakfast in Bed menceritakan perjalanan cinta antara Rich Ronaldi; kakak Rosalie dan Annabelle yang merupakan anak 'kesayangan' di keluarga Ronaldi dengan Becca Larsen; kakak tiri Mike Flynn yang mempunyai jiwa bebas.

Aduh Rich ini memang kebalikan dari Nick dan Mike yang bak perfect husband. Rich jauhhh dari itu. Kelakuannya yang seperti raja di keluarga Ronaldi membuat dia tidak bisa melakukan pekerjaan rumah tangga menyebab

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 t

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.

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..."
