Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Simply adorable doesn't begin to describe this charming contemporary romance, the first of two books by Michaels (Someone to Love; etc.) about twin brothers Jack and Tim Trehan. Injured and retired from his baseball career at the age of 28, Jack spends his time these days endorsing products and drifting around the mansion he's never gotten around to furnishing. When his Aunt Sadie hires a decorator, Jack is all for it, especially when the pretty decorator shows up shortly after his hippie cousin leaves her infant daughter, Magenta Moon, on his doorstep and departs for Katmandu. Interior designer Keely McBride is desperate for a job and figures the commission from decorating Jack's swank suburban digs will provide the funds she needs to open her own business back in Manhattan. She'll do anything to remain employed, including caring for Jack's niece. Complications set in when Magenta Moon's mobster wannabe uncle decides he wants custody and Keely and Jack pretend to be engaged to throw off a social worker. Lively banter and imaginative characters - such as Petra, the precocious baby sitter; Sweetness, the boxer paid to throw fights; and wacky Aunt Sadie who decorates her home with plastic oddities - come together to make this witty, whirlwind narrative a delight. (Nov.)

From Booklist

Jack Trehan is in a funk because his career as a pitcher for the NY Yankees is over and his flaky cousin left for Katmandu, dropping off her infant daughter, Magenta Moon, literally on his doorstep. Entering into this madness is Kelly MacBride, who has come to redecorate Jack's empty 15-room house. She sees the job as a means to reclaim her former life as an interior decorator in New York, but Jack tells her she can redecorate the house only if she moves in and watches little Magenta Moon. Her need to succeed motivates her, but along with the baby, she also has to deal with Jack, his twin, an eccentric aunt, a mobster-wanna-be cousin, and a genius baby-sitter who goes through a different persona every day. Kelly and Jack grow attached to the baby and each other, but career decisions could drive them apart. An entertaining read that promises to continue: Michaels has plans for Jack's twin.

After reading the reviews, I felt compelled to submit my opinion! Let's face it, most of us don't read books like this expecting a lot of realism. I want entertainment, and with this book, I definitely was thoroughly entertained. The characters are hilarious, and eccentric to say the least. In many romances I read, the supporting characters are bland and boring. I usually skim through those scenes wanting to get to the interesting parts. In this book, I loved reading about the crazy characters--I wish they had been in more of the scenes! I agree with the reviewer who mentioned laughing her way through the book. I also found myself picturing the story as a movie in my mind. It reminded me of the hilarious movie "What's Up Doc?" with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal because of the zany characters and situtations. Was that movie realistic? Nope. Was it funny, extremely entertaining, even heartwarming and a very popular movie? You bet! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes romantic comedies!

This book was adorable. I love how Kasey Michaels fills her book with wacky and fun loving characters. Sometimes her romance seems to take a backseat, but with everything else going on it doesn't take away from the book. There are several parts of this book I laughed out loud while reading. If you love fun books you will love this. I can't wait to read Jack's brother Tim's story!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The hero and heroine of Love to Love You, Baby make this story really engaging because they're so true to life and yet just a little off-center. Each has been washed up in their career of choice and is searching for the next thing. They're frustrated, frustrating (to each other) and just plain mixed up. Spending time with them and the adorable baby who accidentally lands in the hero's lap, as well as the daffy extended cast of characters, makes for a romance of sheer escapist fun. There are some slow spots in the middle, and some events seem forced for humor rather than enhancing the story, but overall, this is a good bet for a laugh and a few hours away from your own frustrations. It's not quite as good as Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You, but much better than Ms. Michaels' last effort. Give it a try.

Kasey Michaels books are often hit or miss....and this one I'm sorry to say is a MISS. Why? Well, you know it's supposed to be a comedy because that's what Michaels writes. But here the comedy is forced and frantic. All the characters from Cecily to Keely to Aunt Sadie all have verbal diarrhea: they run on and on and on at the mouth. What could have been a funny little monologue ends up being a long and tedious rant that runs out of steam before it finishes.The story is meant to be a farce but the reader feels manipulated. One of the only Kasey Michaels' books I enjoyed years ago was Can't Take my Eyes Off You. That was a cute, funny and romantic book. I keep giving her a "second chance" but she keeps letting me down. Sorry to be so negative but if your time is limited (like mine is) and you want to read only excellent romantic comedies, choose something by authors like Jennifer Crusie, Julia Quinn or Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Your time will be better spent.

I have always enjoyed Ms Michaels' Regency novels and so was surprised to read a slapstick comedy, which is not my usual genre of reading material. Whilst I did laugh out aloud a number of times during reading the novel, I did become a bit irritated by the long passages of sometimes inane dialogue. I also became a bit confused in the final chapter when so many characters seemed to be talking at once, and at times I wasn't sure who was saying what. Nevertheless, although surrounding characters seemed rather far-fetched, the hero and heroine of the plot were believable and I felt for them. They had depth of character and responded to their situations as I have observed people doing in real life.

Michaels' backlist of contemporary romances always make me smile and laugh, including _Love to Love You Baby_. The quirky characters and snappy dialogue are great fun. My main issue was the overdone sex scenes. I really prefer more be left to the imagination, especially when I find myself skipping 2 and 3 pages to get back to the quirky characters and snappy dialogue.

Light, fun romance = a great way to spend a rainy day.

I have read thousands of romance novels and I must say this one was by far the greatest. I have never reviewed a book before, but I felt I had to this time. It had me laughing so hard that I was crying, and not only at certain points, but pretty much throughout the whole book. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a fast read and give themselves a little uplift. I'm looking forward to reading more of Kasey Michaels and I hope she doesn't dissappoint me.
