"A sparkling new voice! If you love witty dialogue, great characters and a lot of fun in your books, this is the writer for you!"
- Maureen Child, USA Today bestselling author

Rosalie Ronaldi doesn't have a domestic bone in her body ...

All she cares about is her career, so she survives on take-out and dirty martinis, keeps her shoes under the dining room table, her bras on the shower curtain rod, and her clothes on the couch ...

Nick Romeo is every woman's fantasy - tall, dark, handsome, rich, really good in bed, AND he loves to cook and clean ...

He says he wants an independent woman, but when he meets Rosalie, all he wants to do is take care of her. Before too long, he's cleaned up her apartment, stocked her refrigerator, and adopted her dog ...

So what's the problem? Just a little matter of mistaken identity, corporate theft, a hidden past in juvenile detention and one big nosy Italian family too close for comfort ...

Publishers Weekly

Debut author Kaye provides a pleasing romantic romp mixing Italian Brooklyn family values, hot sex and plenty of food. Gorgeous millionaire bachelor Nick Romeo and high-powered corporate turnaround expert Rosalie Ronaldi know what they want from each other: no strings, no heartbreak. When Rosalie falls seriously ill, their casual intentions are tested, though secrets and their mutual business interests threaten to derail the budding romance. Nick, at times almost too perfect, demonstrates that his domestic skills extend far outside the bedroom, astonishing decidedly imperfect Rosalie, whose awe will be familiar to every professional woman who's too busy for perfect housekeeping. Kaye's portrayal of modern romance against the background of an old-fashioned, gossipy extended family rings true, and Nick's efforts to wow Rosalie with fabulous home cooking are endlessly entertaining.

Meet the Author

Robin Kaye was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge next door to her Sicilian grandparents. Living with an extended family that's a cross between Gilligan's Island and The Sopranos, minus the desert isle and illegal activities, explains both her comedic timing and the cast of quirky characters in her books.

She's lived in half a dozen states, from Idaho to Florida, but the romance of Brooklyn has never left her heart. She currently resides in Maryland with her husband, three children, two dogs, and a three-legged cat with attitude.

Read an Excerpt

ROSALIE RONALDI MADE A SUCCESSFUL ESCAPE FROM THE insane asylum. Okay, so it wasn't a real insane asylum; it was her parents's Bay Ridge home. But most days, it could pass for the Sicilian version of Bellevue. She pulled on her coat as the storm door snicked closed behind her, took a deep breath of cold early January air, and ran for the solace of her car.

Sitting through a typical Italian Sunday dinner at Chez, Ronaldi was always a lesson in self-control. Today it had become a lesson in avoidance-marriage avoidance. For the life of her, Rosalie couldn't figure out why her mother would push a daughter she supposedly loved down the aisle. It wasn't as if the institution had brought Maria Ronaldi any happiness. Just the opposite.

Whenever Rosalie made decisions, she measured the odds and studied the statistical evidence-something at which she'd always excelled. With the divorce rate at 53 percent, if you added the number of unhappy marriages that wouldn't end in divorce because of religious beliefs or sheer stubbornness, which she estimated was running at about 46 percent, only 1 percent of all marriages could be considered happy. A person would have to be crazy to take a calculated risk with a 99 percent failure rate.

Rosalie was many things, but crazy wasn't one of them. As a child, she'd made the decision never to marry, and nothing in her experience since had done anything but cement her resolve. Of course, if she said that, she'd be breaking the eleventh commandment: thou shalt marry a nice Catholic boy (preferably Italian) and have babies-or go straight to hell.

Rosalie climbed into her VW Beetle and headed toward her Park Slope apartment. Turning onto the Prospect Expressway, she heard a funny thumping noise. Never a good sign. She pulled over to find her tire was as flat as matzo, and after a marathon Italian dinner, the waistband of her pants was so tight that if she took a deep breath, she'd pop a button. God only knew what would happen when she bent down to change the tire.

Rosalie opened the trunk, expecting to see her spare tire. It was supposed to be right there, but all she saw was a big hole.

Great! Just what she needed. She stared into the trunk, turned to kick the flat tire, and called her brother the nicest name she could think of that fit him. Asshole.

"Stronzo!" She should have known better than to give him a hundred and sixty bucks to replace her spare tire. She'd told him to buy a full-sized spare, and he hadn't even gotten her one of those donuts. "He's proprio un stronzo della prima categoria."

She had no problem calling Rich the world's biggest asshole in Italian. After all, God excused cursing if done in a second language. He gave bonus points for cursing in a third. Rosalie had a feeling she'd be brushing up on her Spanish.

    Gotta love Romeo

    I read this book after reading Too Hot to Handle, and I couldn't put it down. I read it in a little over 24 hours. My sister even got mad at me that I was soo involved with the book lol. I loved Dominick Romeo and all his qualities. He was so sweet to look after Rosalie. The storyline was great and their causal dates were cute and didn't seem fake. I highly recommend this book to all readers. The story was sweet, touching, funny, hot and passionate. I wish the book never ended. I can't wait for more of Kaye's books. You won't be sorry for getting this book. Every girl needs a Dominick and every couple needs a Dave. :)

    amazing read

    i picked this book up on a whim when i couldn't find anything else, but was pleasantly surprised. i didn't put the book down. nick romeo is sooo hot, and you instantly fall in love with his character. rosalie is spunky but needs to tell her mother where to go. the only flaw i see in this book is the way she allows her mother to walk all over her and interfere in her life.

    rosalie breaks down on the side of the street and nick helps her out. somehow he accidently ends up moving in without anyone realizing it. he stands up to her domineering mother, cleans her place, organizes rosalie, and cooks for her. who could ask for a better guy. he's perfect. but... he is also at odds with her professionally when it turns out that they are at opposites ends of the same goal.

    you will love the interaction between these two and the dog. they are great and meant to be. robin kaye writes and extraordinarily awesome book. i will look forward to seeing more her of her books in the future. must read.

    Highly recommended

    My favorite books are those romantic comedies where I am smiling through the entire book. I am hooked on Robin Kaye! This is the first book about the Ronaldi siblings and their crazy Italian family. Rosalie works hard at her job, but she's not so great on the whole homemaker/housekeeping front. When she meets Nick the sparks fly. And he turns out to be a Domestic God. He cleans and cooks and heats up the bedroom. Maybe he hasn't told Rosalie about his connection to her older brother or his last name or his interest in the company she is working to save, but he doesn't want things to end. Rosalie isn't ready for the end either, and for two people who don't do relationships they sure have a hard time being apart. Read and enjoy then follow up with Too Hot To Handle and Breakfast in Bed.

    WOW! Don't Miss This One!

    Romeo Romeo is a fresh, new, entertaining, sassy take on the eternal-playboy-finds-his-true-love-and-reforms theme. Rosalie and Nick are both from Italian-American families. Lee's family is pretty dysfunctional AND pretty funny. Lee is very feisty, independent, and career-minded; due to the state of her parents' marriage, she NEVER wants to get married despite the urging and interference of her mother. Nick has his own valid reasons for avoiding marriage. Their chemistry is HOT, but Lee shocks Nick by giving him the "I only want sex, NO MARRIAGE, until one of us is tired of the affair" speech on the lst date. There's also role reversal in "don't call me, I'll call you," Lee's the slob and Nick's the neatnik, etc. etc. But don't be fooled: Nick is VERY HOT and VERY MACHO!!! You'll be rooting for this romance all the way! A wonderful debut novel, and a great read!

    Romeo, Romeo by Robin Kaye

    "Romeo, Romeo" is a fun feel-good romance about two people who aren't looking for love. He's the man of every woman's dream--rich, handsome, sexy, and a caretaker. She's successful, hardworking, and for a change, uninterested in anything more than sex. Reading about Nick's 'fall' was almost as good as chocolate and entertaining to boot! Author Robin Kaye is either a man in disguise or had one on hand for research since she 'pegged' all the ridiculous things men do and say to avoid thinking about their feelings. And Nick's mental gymnastics and secrets while digging himself deeper into the relationship were almost another character on their own. Humor, hot sex, and a happy ending. How can you pass that up?

    A fun read.

    Dominick Romeo is Brooklyn¿s version of Donald Trump without the comb over and oh yeah¿ he¿s hot and rich! Nick owns numerous car dealerships throughout Brooklyn which is how he came to be driving a wrecker home, in coveralls over his business suit, when he came upon Rosalie Ronaldi on the side of the road with a flat tire and no spare. Being the nice guy that he is, Nick offers Rosalie a ride home promising to have her car fixed by the next day. Nick doesn¿t exactly lie to Rosalie about his identity but she has no idea that she¿s riding with a self-made millionaire and agrees to a dinner date the next night. Nick¿s relieved that Rosalie has no idea who he is because now he knows that Rosalie won¿t be after him for his money like so many of the revolving girlfriends he¿s had in the past. Rosalie is a turnaround expert who temporarily takes over as the CFO of failing businesses to bring them back to life. Rosalie¿s new project is the one dealership that Nick has always coveted but could never buy out. Now Nick knows that he has to come clean about who he really is before Rosalie finds out the truth. Somehow he just can¿t bring himself to do it because he knows it¿ll bring an end to their relationship and somehow Rosalie has made it past his ¿tough guy who runs from marriage¿ exterior and into his heart. The resulting story is a heart-warming tale told with a lot of hot sex and sarcastic humor. I laughed at the tables being turned on Nick when Rosalie kicks him out of her bed and sends him packing because one of her rules is to never let a guy spend the night. Kaye¿s writing is a refreshing change from the typical contemporary romance. I could see all the characters as real people showing real feelings with an ending that is truly believable unlike many stories where the characters don¿t fit the happily ever after ending that¿s par for the course in contemporary writing. I highly recommend this read to all romance lovers.

    Somewhat overrated.

    It's OK, but just sort of bleh without the paranormal twist I've grown accustomed to. Lacking in suspense, dare I say, boring. Not much depth or realism in the characters, the sex was lacking. I actually only remember one steamy scene towards the beginning, unfortunately, never to return again in the book. I personally thought it was somewhat overrated.

    F- This book is horrible!!!!!

    I love romance novels but, this one is just horrible. It is like the heroine is the guy and the hero is the girl. I expected her to scratch her crotch and spit. When I read about how she took take of her apartment that she didn't even know where her vacuum was I literally wanted to vomit and had to stop reading in the middle of the book. Even before this I knew exactly how the book is going to end so, I didn't even finish it. I bought two of Robin Kaye books at once because of the reviews but, I have to give this book a big thumbs down. Hopefully her next book is better.
