Ben Walsh knows his grandfather won't give him his parent's ranch until he gets married. So, he approaches Gina Reyez with a business deal...marry him for a couple of years and he will buy her a house and give her a large settlement. Gina hesitates to take the deal because she definitely doesn't want to be married. But she would like the financial security the money would give her and her family. Gina agrees and everything is going fine until Ben's Grandpa Joe shows up on her doorstep. The next things she knows, she and Ben are flying to Idaho to visit family and things are getting out of control.
I've enjoyed every book in the Domestic Gods series and was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, there were things that just didn't work for me. I thought Gina was very irritating, always whining and complaining about everything. And I never understood why Ben fell in love with Gina. I loved the character of Ben (what woman wouldn't?). I also enjoyed meeting the various members of Ben's family and look forward to their books in a spin-off series. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
Good if you like sex scenes. This is the usual man who
has to get married to inherit something. It's cute and fast reading. Nothing was really bad but can't rave about it either.
Enjoyable, sexy, quick read. Yours for the Taking is a marriage of convenience story, the hero, Ben, is loaded and pays the hard working, lower class heroine, Gina, to marry him so he can inherit his family ranch. Both of these characters were introduce in previous books of the series and and they didn't make a good impression on me at the time. I did learn to like them in this one, although the heroine was pretty mean at the beginning she did grow on me. The male domestic god thing is a repeated theme in this book (as in the 3 before), it could be getting a little old. Romeo, Romeo was my favorite.
