Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kaye turns out a lackluster fourth contemporary (after Too Hot to Handle). Rich, smart, and sexy, Ben Walsh resists marriage until his billionaire grandpa threatens to deprive him of the one piece of real estate he's always wanted. Ben then proposes a legitimate but businesslike marriage to Latina bombshell Gina Reyez, a hard-working and upwardly mobile administrative assistant. Gina accepts Ben's offer to be his wife on paper only, despite both her misgivings and her attraction to him. Soon Ben finds himself drawn to her, and he begins engineering plots to make the sham marriage last. Ben's attraction and his family's heartfelt approval of his new wife are puzzling, as Gina vents a constant barrage of insults and always insists on being right. The passionate sex scenes can't make up for the uninspired storyline and obnoxious protagonist. (Jan.)
Booklist
Charming readers with her wit and style, Kaye creates an extremely sensual romance about two people who do not believe in romantic love.

— Patty Engelmann

Dreamworld Book Reviews
Entertaining and cute... Super sizzling...
RT Book Reviews
Wildly entertaining and comical from the start... The love scenes are hot and sexy and the chemistry between Ben and Gina sizzles!
Library Journal
Ben Walsh co-owns a prestigious New York art gallery, but his heart is back in Boise, ID, on the ranch where he lived with his parents until their tragic deaths. His billionaire grandfather says he'll now give Ben the land but only if Ben gets married. Commitment-phobe Ben doesn't want a wife or the ties that marriage entails. His plan? Find a woman who isn't interested in marriage either but who has other goals that Ben's money and a solid prenup will afford. Enter Gina Reyez. The tiny Latina wants to buy her own home and ensure that her married younger sister, Tina, never goes without. Also, Gina's got secrets that some easy cash will help to unravel. Can this business venture find success, especially the no-sex part? What do you think? Verdict Kaye (Breakfast in Bed) keeps her New York series going with this merger of total opposites who find that finally letting go of the past and of control can lead to love and a bright future. With characters like an interfering elder statesman and a bunch of strapping singles waiting for their own books, this sexy contemporary will satisfy Kaye's readers and enlist a whole passel of new ones. For most public libraries.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
The Barnes & Noble Review

From Eloisa James's "READING ROMANCE" column on The Barnes & Noble Review


One of my ex-boyfriends is in love. He called Christmas Day to say that he's never been so happy (and in case you're wondering whether that touch of insensitivity was characteristic -- it was). An on-line program managed to find a woman whose ambitions, background, job, and habits match his precisely. After one date, they were a couple, and, after one month, they were sharing a front door: "We speak the same language," he purred. But not all relationships arrive with an easy click or two of the computer keys. According to the novels in this column, the best relationships might be hard-won, those in which partners find each other (at least initially) incomprehensible.

Robin Kaye's Yours for the Taking puts an urban twist on a classic tale of marriage-for-convenience: Ben Walsh needs a wife or he'll lose his inheritance, and Gina Reyez could really use the money he offers. She's not worried about intimacy issues, because it's patently obvious that Ben is gay: he's incredibly well-dressed, owns an art gallery, cooks like a dream, and decorated his own apartment. Gina, on the other hand, is a fierce Latina businesswoman who wears five-inch heels and lots of red lipstick. He grew up in a loving family; her mother was a sex worker and her father was an abusive drug addict. They don't have class, education, or gender in common -- and even after Gina figures out that her gaydar has malfunctioned, their inability to understand each other almost leads to heartbreak. Yours for the Takingis a treat to read, and a sweet, funny way to start the New Year.

Laura Lee Guhrke's Wedding of the Season puts together a hero and heroine matched by class, but little else. Lady Beatrix Danbury was betrothed to William Mallory, the Duke of Sunderland, but a few days before the wedding, Will jilted his fiancèe, broke her heart, and left on an archaeological dig. He did his best to impress Beatrix with the allure of King Tutankhamen's tomb, which for her remained merely "clay pots and cylinder seals." Six year later, Beatrix is on the verge of marrying another duke when Will reappears in England. But they still have no way to talk to each other: she thinks the life of an archaeologist is madness; he thinks the life of a duke is meaningless. Beatrix puts her finger on the main problem: "To be married -- happily, at least -- two people have to want the same things, share the same view of their life." When Beatrix and Will finally find a way to bridge the chasm between Egypt and England, between a dig and the Ascot, the relief is delicious. Happiness between two people who have to learn each other's language is hard won and, I would argue, all the more joyful for the turmoil that precedes it.

The hero and heroine of Vicki Lewis Thompson's A Werewolf in Manhattan would never be paired by a respectable matchmaker. Aidan Wallace wears an $800,000 watch, and Emma Gavin takes the subway to save fossil fuel. But this couple is separated by more than class: they have physiology against them as well. Emma is a bestselling writer of paranormal romances about werewolves -- and Aidan is the son of a rich and powerful werewolf pack leader. Add in the fact that sexual tension makes Aiden sprout hair on his hands (and other places), plus a rogue werewolf threatening to tell Emma the truth, and A Werewolf in Manhattan spins into a delicious fantasy about a woman and a werewolf with absolutely nothing in common. Thomas's hilarious story pops with funny references to big white teeth, fur overcoats, and possible puppies. But in the midst of all that laughter, this tale of people from utterly different worlds -- and gene pools -- is fascinating.

Ava Gray's Skin Heat poses a similar type of problem to that of Gina and her werewolf, but with a darker edge. Zeke Noble has escaped from a secret medical facility where he was the subject of reckless and immoral experiments. Once free, he discovers he can no longer read, and words come to him slowly. On the good side, he's much stronger, can hear a whisper miles away, and feels unnervingly able to understand and to connect to animals. Geneva Harper also has an instinctive connection to animals -- but no more than any other vet. She's the daughter of a mill owner, who grew up in luxury and fought for the right to have a career. Zeke is the child of a drunk, whose mother committed suicide; as a boy he mowed Geneva's family lawn. More importantly, perhaps, she's normal and he -- isn't. When things go awry, their perspectives are worlds apart. But when Zeke tells Geneva that he "cares so much I don't have the words," it's a deeply romantic declaration of love between people whom no one would believe had a chance at happiness.

Christina Henry's Black Wings brings together the most antithetical pair of all: an angel (albeit an earthly one) and a devil. Madeline Black is an agent of death, which means that she gets a white envelope every Friday giving her a list of souls that she's supposed to convince to enter "the Door." Maddie narrates her adventures with jaunty wit: to her, death is "just another bureaucracy." She takes a break from filing to rent her downstairs apartment to "a handsome devil," according to her pet gargoyle. As it turns out, Gabriel Angeloscuro is indeed a devil (not to mention gorgeous). Maddie not only doesn't understand him or his motives for moving into her house, but she soon finds that she herself is manifesting some baffling powers. Christina Henry takes the situation in which a man and woman don't understand each other a step further by broadening the areas of potential misunderstanding to heaven and its opposite.

Match.com and its brethren promise that their computer programs will find the perfect person, leading to meaningful, deep, and long-term relationships. And maybe that's true. But these novels tempt one to leap in at the deep end: to believe that people who have nothing in common, and can't understand each other's motives, ambitions or actions, can fall in love -- and that love so hard won will be hard kept.

Read an Excerpt

"Karma Kincaid, will you marry me?"

Ben Walsh sat on the weight bench in the home gym of his Columbus Avenue loft after spending the morning flipping through his not-so-little black book for the hundredth time. The pressure of a deadline was taking its toll. He had a book full of names of women he'd dated over the last ten years, none of whom he would ever consider marrying. Not that he ever wanted to marry anyone in the first place, but his grandfather had taken that decision out of his hands. He didn't have a choice-well, not one he could live with anyway. He adjusted his Bluetooth to make sure they were still connected, and picked up a twenty-pound dumbbell, working his biceps while he waited for her reply.

"Benjamin Joseph Walsh, do you have any idea what time it is?"

He smiled and counted his reps silently. "Two hours earlier than it is here in New York. Did I wake you?" Sheets rustled over the phone, feet stomped, and then if he wasn't mistaken, he heard peeing. "Do you always go to the bathroom when you're on the phone?"

"No, you're just privileged. You have some nerve calling me at seven twenty-two in the morning. I closed the bar last night and didn't get to bed until after three." The toilet flushed.

"Well, are you going to marry me or not?"

"How many times do I have to tell you I can't marry you? Not only is it illegal; it's disgusting. You're my cousin."

"I am not." Ben switched hands to work his left arm. "We're like cousins but we're not blood relatives. There's no law against marriage between two unrelated people who grew up like family. It's perfectly legal."

"Maybe, but I remember you in Spiderman underwear-"

"It was Superman."

"Whatever. I have no interest in ever seeing you in your underoos again, and even less interest in seeing you without them. Besides, even if I did marry you, which I won't, Grampa Joe would never buy it. Like he'd ever believe, after knowing each other our entire lives, we chose this highly convenient time to fall madly in love."

Ben placed the weight on the floor and lay back on the bench, curling his arm under his head. "Gramps never said anything about love. He said I had to get married and start working on producing an heir or two-"

"Can I just say one thing? Ewww! Not unless it's artificial insemination and even then, it's gross. No way. Sorry. I love you, Ben, but not that much."

"Come on. Gramps is old. Maybe he's finally losing it and going senile."

Karma snorted. "Right. Big Joe Walsh is anything but, and you know it. Besides, he just turned eighty. That's like sixty in human years. He's probably going to live to be at least one hundred and ten. Did I tell you I almost ran into him the other day on Castle Rock skiing? I swear the man acts like he owns the mountain."

Frustrated, Ben stood and picked up the dumbbell to return it to the rack. "I think he does. So, that settles it. I'm going to ask her, Karma."

"Ask who what?"

"Gina, I'm going to call her and invite her over."

"That friend of Annabelle Ronaldi's who you've met how many times? Twice?"

"It's Annabelle Flynn now, and yes, I'm going to propose to Gina."

"Then why the heck did you bother proposing to me?"

"Last-ditch effort, I guess."

"You've made up your mind?"

"It's the only logical conclusion. I have to marry someone. The only question is who. Since you have so unceremoniously rejected me, what choice do I have?"

"You can call Big Joe's bluff."

"And let him sell my ranch to the highest bidder? No way. That's my home."

Karma let out a groan that sounded wrought with frustration. "It's just land."

"It's my land, or it will be as soon as I talk Gina into marrying me."

"What makes you think you can trust her?"

"I've done my research. Gina's made no bones about never wanting to marry."

"Yeah, that's before she met you and your family's billions."

"You haven't read her dossier. She has a very interesting and impressive background."

"I don't care what her background is. Greed is not discriminatory; people from all walks of life suffer from it."

"Good luck with that. What famous lawyer said he'd never seen a prenup he couldn't break?"

"Your brother, Trapper."

"He's not so famous, but he knows what he's talking about-usually."

"I have a team of lawyers working on it and I'm paying through the nose for the best legal advice I can buy."

"Okay, so let's say this prenup is air-tight. What's going to keep Gina from falling for you? All your women do, you know."

Ben laughed. "All but you and Annabelle."

"Quit feeling sorry for yourself. This is a big deal, Ben."

Ben moved on to the treadmill and started a mountain hike. "You think I don't know that? Gina's never had a relationship last more than a month or two, and from what I've learned, she has ample reason not to trust people enough to let them get close-especially men." He pumped up the incline and speed. "She's young and she's making a real name for herself in her field. My sources claim she has no interest in ever getting married."

"What about sex?"

Ben laughed. "Karma, I don't know what your mama told you, but you don't have to be married to have sex."

    Just Read-Yours for the Taking

    I love a fun, romantic comedy, so I am trilled to have discovered Robin Kaye. Ben needs to get married in order to inherit the ranch where he grew up. Gina accepts his proposal as a business proposal, because she'll get the financial security she's always dreamed of out of the very generous prenup. They both agree this is strictly business and platonic. He'll be in Idaho most of the time. She'll stay in their newly purchased NY mansion. However, Ben's crafty grandfather may throw a wrench in to their plan, and just perhaps these two who don't do long term relationships will find something more. There are minor characters in this book whose stories are told in Romeo, Romeo, Too Hot to Handle and Breakfast in Bed. Still to come the stories of Ben's cousins in Idaho. I can't wait.

    Likeable Romance with an Unlikeable Heroine

    This is the first book I've read of Robin Kaye's Domestic Gods series. By some accounts it's her best, other's her worst. I can't really be the judge of that since it's my first, but here are some of my thoughts after reading Yours for the Taking.

    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 grandfather is going to sell Ben's childhood ranch in Idaho where he holds cherished memories of his mother and father who died when he was younger. He's a driven, but caring person who is determined to have the ranch, pretty much at any cost....to the tune of many millions of dollars. Just as long as the woman he marries knows that it is a marriage of convenience only...no emotional strings attached.

    Gina is a survivor who grew up feeling responsible for the care and nurturing of her siblings. She's a fighter, who has learned the hard way to only rely on herself. Consequently, she is at times abrasive, off-putting and needs to have control of her own destiny so that she won't ever have to be reliant on someone else for her wellbeing again. She came from nothing, but through hard work and diligence she's made a good life for herself and her sister. So when she's offered a chance to marry a man she knows only through mutual acquaintances, for which she will be paid a substantial amount of money, she thinks not of what it will gain her, but how she can in return help those she loves the most.

    I didn't really know what to expect from this modern day take on a marriage of convenience. I was somewhat skeptical about what would motivate two people who barely know each other in a contemporary romance to marry, but the circumstances that the author places each character in makes it believable that they would both benefit from the arrangement.

    Ben is a very likeable hero, and despite his need for a wife that he has no emotional entanglements with he quickly falls in lust and love with Gina...but for the life of me I couldn't really tell you why. Because you see, Gina isn't really a likeable person...at least that is the way she comes across. She's hard and because of her situation growing up she trusts and relies on no one. She has a hard time asking anyone for help, and isolates herself and her feelings to protect herself from further hurt and disappointment. She's always looking for people to fail her, so in the end she gets exactly what she looks for because if you look hard enough you can always find fault.

    I never really liked Gina as a person and felt that her character never progressed from someone who needs no one, to someone who needs the man she loves in her life. I never really got why Ben loved Gina, but I certainly understood why Gina could fall in love with Ben. As a result their love story seemed very one sided and that was a big disappointment.

    Despite my feelings about Gina as a character I did enjoy my first Robin Kaye book. I loved Ben. I loved the cast of supporting characters, the interaction and dialogue between the characters, and the overall plot and writing style. I just wish that Gina's character would have evolved more from beginning to end because that would have made this 3 star read a definite 4+ star read.

    I REALLY REALLY dont like Gina!

    I have read the other 3 books in this series and now this one. Ben is a hero I can get behind. Gina I didn't like when I first met her in book one and I don't like her now. I don't understand why she has friends and what made Ben fall for her. I'm glad I got this book just so I could finish the series but unhappy that there was no reason for me to root for Ben and Gina to be together.

    Married for Money...

    Yours for the Taking by Robin Kaye Book 4 in The Domestic Gods Series Gina Reyez had a tough life. Her mom was a whore and her dad was a drug addict. She began taking care of her sister at a young age. Even now that Tina was married, Gina still wanted to protect and take care of her little sister. And she held another weight on her shoulders, something that happened when she was six and yet she blames herself. She wants to make enough money to buy a home for herself, help her sister, and solve the mystery of her childhood, where she failed. When Ben Walsh made her a business proposition, she could not refuse it. She never wanted to get married but he offered her enough money to solve all her problems. And it would be in name only and maybe for a year or three. Problem was that she thought Ben was something he was not, by the time the truth is out...the marriage was legal. Ben Walsh was a happy bachelor. He was rich and handsome and had no problems finding ladies to entertain. Then Grandpa Joe stepped in. Either Ben was to marry or Gramps would sell the ranch that had belonged to his deceased parents. All his happy memories of when his folks were alive were at the ranch, so marriage it is. He had met Gina a few times and thought she might fit the bill. She was not his type, short and dark hair rather than tall and blonde but for a temporary marriage she would do. Problem was...Ben did not expect to admire his beautiful wife so much. Grandpa Joe steps in to help his grandson and causes more problems than solutions. And the cousins don't help Ben out much either. I had read book 5 first, Wild Thing, and this book puts many pieces together but I would suggest reading this series in order as each book has a piece to help connect you to the next one. **Contains language and sexual situatons.

    Mediocre

    I read the first three books and I loved Gina's character in Romeo Romeo but as the heroine, she was annoying, selfish and spoiled. I only finished the book because I liked Ben and his cousins. I can't wait to read about them. Only for them that I give this book 3 stars

    Really more of a 2 1/2 star read....

    By far the best book in this series was the first one. The three that follow just don't have the umph that that one did. I had thought that book four would be better--it started out fairly strong and was enjoyable, until the big relationship crisis occurs between Gina and Ben about 2/3 of the way through--then it all just got overblown and silly. The ending was a little better, but not much.

    Great Read!

    This is a well written light romantic novel. The story is cute and the romance is fun. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, but you can read this book stand alone and not feel like you've missed something. My only disappointment is the unresolved issue of Raphael at the end of the novel. I only hope one of her future books resolves that. Overall, this was a great, light read that I would recommend to anyone.

    A fun and sexy read

    Yours For The Taking by Robin Kaye is a funny and sexy story that will warm your soul.

    Ben Walsh is in a major bind; his beloved ranch will be sold if he doesn't come up with a wife like yesterday. His grandfather has forced Ben's hand in getting him married and settled. Ben has never had a problem with finding a willing woman but a wife is a whole other matter. After striking out with a female friend he makes a business deal with Gina Reyez. Ben is convinced he can have a temporary marriage to satisfy his grandfather then go on his merry way. But Gina gets under his skin and into his heart like no other woman he knows.

    Gina Reyez has always depended on herself and had total control of her life. Ben's deal seems perfect for her, she can take care of her sister and give herself some financial security. Plus Ben isn't interested in her so that makes her body and heart perfectly safe.
    She figures that she can keep Ben under control and just go about her daily life like nothing has changed.

    Neither had planned on an interfering Grandfather deciding to work his ways on these two stubborn newlyweds. Tricked into spending time at Ben's ranch has Gina, this hardened New Yorker thinking that the peace and quiet is good for her. Spending 24/7 with Ben has her realizing her initial thoughts about Ben are way off the mark. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts and has them both thinking this temporary marriage could be the real thing. Only if they let their hearts overrule their minds.

    Yours For The Taking is delightfully sexy and funny. You want these two stubborn characters to realize what is right in front of their eyes. Their journey is sexy, funny and also deeply moving. I enjoyed this whole series and am looking forward to reading more from this author.
