Breakfast in Bed by Robin Kaye

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. But soon she realizes that this Domestic God might be something she doesn't want to give up but instead wants to keep for herself... now it's just a matter of convincing him that she's the only girl he needs to impress.

Just thinking of a man trying to domesticate himself in order to win a girl's heart - brings a big smile to my face. Rich was hilarious with his zany antics. My God, the man was a disaster. Although he comes off as a womanizer and even arrogant at first, he slowly but surely works his way into your heart. Becca wasn't so high on my list. She was easier to like in the beginning of the book but she just went downhill from there for me. I can understand that a girl needs to set-up barriers to protect her delicate heart, and in Becca's case, she just couldn't trust a man to love her without loving her money more. But there was a point where I just wanted to grab a hold of her and tell her to just get over it. She was a tad frustrating for me. Nonetheless, she redeemed herself towards the end of the story making this sweet, contemporary romance, an enjoyable one. I loved all the supporting characters as well - Rich's Aunt Rose, the upstairs gay neighbors and even Tripod, the three legged cat. Ms. Kaye's writing was simple and she made her characters realistic and most of them were very endearing. None were perfect, which made them even more loveable in my eyes.

In the end, this was a fun read where you don't have to put too much thought into it and just submerge yourself in the good feeling of it all. It was the first in the series that I've read, so I definitely want to get my hands on the other two that came before it.
