Despite her families harping Rosalie Ronaldi has absolutely no intention of getting married or becoming a domestic goddess.  Her home is a disaster and she survives on take-out but her career is right on track.  She’s very happy with the way things are – or she would be if her perfect Italian family would just get off her case over her single status.  

Nick Romeo has gone from juvenile delinquent to self made millionaire and Brooklyn’s most eligible bachelor.  There are a number of women ready, willing and eager to share his bed with their heart’s set on a wedding ring.  Nick isn’t interested in marriage and breaks it off with any woman who even hints at matrimony. 


Nick and Rosalie’s first meeting isn’t exactly the ideal way to meet someone.  He’s stuck driving a tow-truck due to a problem with his Viper and Rosalie is stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire and no spare.  The simple fact that she’s missing a spare has her in a fit of rage and cussing his brother in two languages because she gave him the funds to pick up a spare.  Nick pulls a good Samaritan act and stops to help her and then can’t help but find himself attracted to this ‘crazy’ woman.  


Nick and Rosalie seem to have the same policy regarding relationships.  Marriage isn’t on either of their agendas but there’s nothing wrong with a little commitment free sex.   Of course any hope they have of keeping things strictly on a sexual level become history once Rosalie becomes seriously ill and Nick steps in to take care of her.  All of a sudden he’s moved in, taking care of the dog, cooking and cleaning.  He’s perfect for a woman looking for a forever love which Rosalie isn’t so why can’t she stop thinking about him?  One of their big problems is the simple fact that he hasn’t been truthful with her regarding who he really is or how he knows her older brother.  Rosalie’s not a woman who will take deception lightly and she definitely has no qualms about expressing her anger – in several languages.  Will Nick and Rosalie be able to overcome the problems facing them especially when they have to contend with her overwhelmingly nosey family?


This story had me laughing within moments of opening the cover.  ROMEO, ROMEO is a witty charming story full of scenes that will ‘speak’ to readers.  From Rosalie’s spunky stubborn attitude to Nick’s caring domestic god persona I just couldn’t read about this couple fast enough.  Robin Kaye blends the dynamics of a large Italian family into this storyline with delicious results that I found particularly delightful.  Rosalie and Nick share so much in common that there’s no doubt that they’re perfect for each other but there are some major problems and long standing ‘rules’ that they have to overcome. 


ROMEO, ROMEO is not only Robin Kaye’s first published book but it’s also the first book in her DOMESTIC GODS series. If you enjoy fun lighthearted stories that incorporate a lot of humor with some more serious situations then be sure to pick up a copy of ROMEO, ROMEO – you won’t be disappointed.
