Too Hot to Handle
Back Cover: "Dr.Mike Flynn sure would love to have a woman to take care of... To Dr. Mike, there's nothing like vacuuming or doing a few dishes to help a guy relax. Annabelle Ronaldi would never cook if she could order takeout. When they meet at her sister's wedding, Mike is sure this is the woman he wants to take care of forever. While Mike sets to work wooing Annabelle, she becomes determined to sniff out the truth of a convoluted family secret that's going to turn both their lives upside down..."
"Too Hot to Handle" is a romantic story that will have you laughing and crying from Annabelle's sense of humor, her protective family and friends, and Mike himself as they figure out their relationship and where it will take them. From page 1, Robin Kaye captures your attention.
"Ghosts don't have sex, do they? Annabelle Ronaldi wasn't one hundred percent sure of the answer. Floating between sleep and wakefulness after a night of way too much champagne, she figured she'd either had mind-blowing sex with the ghost of her dead boyfriend, Chip, or his double. She crossed her fingers for the latter." pg 1Mike looks almost exactly like her dead boyfriend and she sets out to discover exactly why that is. Chip's sister, Annabelle's best friend, thinks so too and does some sleuthing of her own. Meanwhile, Mike wants to know what make Annabelle tick and why she refuses to paint anymore when she has so much talent. And just what is her relationship with her boss? Mix in Annabelle's Italian interfering, protective family and Mike's loving mother who seems to have a few secrets of her own and it makes for a interesting, humorous, emotional story.
I thoroughly enjoyed "Too Hot to Handle"by Robin Kaye and highly recommend it. I also look forward to reading Robin Kaye's debut novel in her Domestic Goddess series "Romeo, Romeo" which is a precursor to "Too Hot to Handle" and is about Annabelle's sister Rosalie.

Other thoughts about the book:
Dar at Peeking Between the Pages:
"There is quite a bit of hanky panky within the pages of Too Hot to Handle to spice up anyone's life. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to get away from life for a while and be hugely entertained."
Jackie at Literary Escapism:
"The story itself was really quick and threw a lot of obstacles in front of Annabelle and Mike. There were times where I thought I knew what was going to happen, but Mike or Annabelle surprised me and did something else."
Rachelle from Enchanted by Books:
"Overall, TOO HOT TO HANDLE is an outstanding contemporary romance that readers will fall in love with and want to read over and over again. "
