about

"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 ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Every woman needs a Dave. Romeo Romeo is the first Robin Kaye I have read but it won't be the last. This book has above average heat but is not overly explicit and it had plenty of comedy to keep me entertained. I loved Dave, Rosalie's overprotective dog, I think he should get his own book. I know one of the other reviewers said Nick was unrealistic but as a woman married to a man who is anal about the house I didn't find it too bad. One thing I did find a bit "out there" is that they were sleeping together, practically living together and yet the lack of a last name for Nick was not an issue. Even in casual relationships I can't ever envision a situation where a woman would be OK with a guy not telling her his last name. I guess that is why it is a good thing this is romantic fiction and as long as you like the characters you can forgive the rest. I also found Rosalie's assistant Gina to be a hoot and can't wait for her story - I expect she is going to be a real handful for the unlucky sod Kaye teams her up with. Overall a nice light beach read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light & Quick read, yet unrealistic "Romeo Romeo" follows Rosalie Ronaldi as she becomes involved with Nick Romeo, a wealthy good-looking bachelor who has a reputation for being a ladies man. However, Rosalie doesn't know this man is the Nick Romeo, and thinks he is a down-to-earth mechanic, which is the impression he gave when they first met. Rosalie insists she doesn't want a serious relationship but Nick falls for her very quickly and takes care of her when she falls ill. Although Nick never stays with the same woman for very long, he is astounded by Rosalie's independence and cannot resist trying to care for her, despite her objections. Throughout the book there are a number of complications, including the fact that Rosalie is trying to turn around the same company that Nick is trying to buy out, which she doesn't know as well. I enjoyed reading this book but evry once in a while was bothered by how contrived some it seemed to me. While I didn't mind the predictable plot, I found Nick way too unrealistic to be taken seriously. Then again, if the characters were more realistic, it wouldn't be as much fun to read. My favorite parts of the book were the amusing ones, particularly those that involved Rosalie's loving yet overbearing Italian family. I liked seeing how their involvement always complicated everything! "Romeo, Romeo" is perfect for a quick and light read, but like its characters, isn't meant to be taken too seriously.
