Summary

He sure would love to have someone to take care of…
Dr. Mike Flynn’s single mom taught him early how to cook and clean, and there’s nothing like vacuuming or doing dishes to help a guy relax. Annabelle Ronaldi is an artist without a domestic bone in her body. Since her fiancé’s death, she can’t paint, and life looks hopeless.
Until the day after her sister’s wedding, when she wakes up with Mike next to her in bed, and then she’s really beside herself – because the handsome stranger is a dead ringer for her dead fiancé.
After their mind-blowing one night stand, Mike is sure this is the woman he wants to take care of forever, but she acts like she’s seen a ghost. While Mike sets to work wooing Annabelle, she sets to work sniffing out the truth of the convoluted family secret that turns everybody’s lives upside down.
My Thoughts
The first story in this series was a very pleasant surprise and I jumped really fast on book two. Since most of the characters are already know and we kinda can’t wait to see how they fell in love.
The first book is about Rosalie and we met her sister Annabelle there. I have to say that she sounded like a bitch from her appearance and I wanted someone better in this book, but some things happened in her past that made her that way and it took some time for her to overcome the sadness and really enjoy life again.
Nick introduced us he’s friend Mike when lee caught pneumonia and needed a doctor. First of all he sounded way more happy on the first book and after realizing that he’s life is not perfect as it sounded  kinda enjoyed more he’s responsible fair, because he was way to perfect to be true.
So these two met on the wedding and it was attraction at first sight. Annabelle was sad and he looked like someone else to her, but after getting drunk the night was really all about sex for them. But Mike wanted more, a relationship while Annabelle just wanted to enjoy good sex for the first time in her life.
Annabelle is kinda like her sister and not very domestic, but Mike also learned a thing or two with Vinnie, plus he’s a bit of crazy with cleaning parts, so they ended up like a copy of the same story on the first book and that’s the only part I didn’t like it.
But Annabelle had secrets and I enjoyed how she finally let herself open up and how she and Mike handled their problems. Mike discovered more about his family, but things ended up really good. In the end the book earned the forth star.

Summary
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 …
My Thoughts
This was a different book and it caught me real good. I was reading two other books at the time and couldn’t let this one down and didn’t even run to the internet while reading. It was like everything else could wait, but I needed my fix from Lee and Nick.
Nick is perfect guy, like a prince and he likes to clean and cook. There’s not a single man that can be accounted liking both these. But Nick has some faults that totally made him human. He lied, but he had reasons, so in the end he was still pretty high on the God-like list.
Rosalie has a little bit of problem with relationships and that’s only because her parents sucked at their marriage and fought all the time. So she decided to just enjoy life and work around her mother when marriage came to talk.
The thing is Nick met Rosalie one night and she was having a bad day so was he, but the chemistry was really strong and he asked her out. He didn’t told her a lot of things, but he was only protecting himself and tried to save the trouble.
I loved Nick and the hole world about this series showing great guys that can actually clean is so different and practically a dream, but I’m enjoying that and the first book was pretty much perfect. The romance and the sex were well written.
Robin Kaye is now on my favorite authors list because she made me believe in perfect guys once again, but they still have faults.
