Yours for the Taking

Yours for the Taking - Robin Kaye This is the 4th book in Robin Kaye's Domestic Gods Series, but can certainly be read as a stand-alone.Gina Reyez had a rough childhood - a prostitute mother and drug-addicted father. She knows what it's like to live on the streets and has learned the hard way not to depend on anyone but herself. She lives with her younger sister, Tina, and Tina's husband Sam.Ben Walsh is a successful businessman; he lost his parents in an accident when he was young and his grandfather is threatening to sell his parent's land if he doesn't marry soon.Ben wants that land more than anything, and offers Gina a business deal - marry him and he'll pay her a monthly allowance, buy her a house, and settle more money on her when they divorce - after he gets the land from his grandfather. Gina realizes that with the money she'll make from Ben, she can buy herself a house free and clear that the bank will not be able to take away. She'll also be able to buy a house for her sister, and search for her brother, who she hasn't seen since he was a baby. Since she believes Ben is gay, she agrees to do it.My thoughts: I've enjoyed Ms. Kaye's other Domestic Gods books, and Yours for the Taking was as sexy and entertaining as her previous books. It had a different feel to it, but still I liked it. Gina is a city girl - never been in a plane, doesn't know how to drive, doesn't trust anyone. Ben is more laid back - he loves being outdoors and commutes between Idaho and New York. It was fun to read these two butting heads, and Gina as a fish out of water in the Idaho wilderness was probably exactly how I'd behave :) The romance was sweet and the passion was hot!
