Book Review: Too Hot To Handle

Too Hot to Handle by Robin Kaye
Description: Mike Flynn is a doctor who wants nothing more then to take care of a woman. He isn't afraid to admit that he loves to cook and clean. How is that not every woman's dreams.

For Annabelle Ronaldi he seems perfect. She hates cooking and cleaning and loves that Mike is willing to do that for him. But she has a secret - he looks just like her now dead love. Their personalities are different but their looks are exactly the same. So when she wakes up next to Mike after attending her sister's wedding she knows she should stay away from him.

But she can't! And that means trouble for both of them - for there is a lot more going on then is obvious.

I thought this book was a fun and flirty read. I love that the main hero likes to cook and clean (who doesn't want a man like that). I love that the woman is ok with that and that finally someone who took care of everyone else in her life is now being taken care of.

The best part of this book is that there is so much being told behind the scenes. It isn't just about sex and relationships between a man and a woman. It tells the story (in a not heavy-handed way) of relationships between parents and children, of lovers who were separated, of friendship and death.

What genre would you consider this?
Contemporary Romance

I loved this book along with Romeo, Romeo. They are such fun reads. I have to agree, a man who cooks and cleans and is so attentive-yup, perfect. Wonder where they all are. lol.

I was lucky enough to marry one. I've seen a few in my day, so I know they're out there.

This does sound like a good read. Though my husband may not "like" to cook and clean - he sure did a lot last winter when I had a broken foot!
