A delicious, sexy, laugh-out-loud modern romance about a newly single woman and her journey to find love again in ROMAN CRAZY from New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton and debut author Nina Bocci (Gallery Books; on sale September 13, 2016; Trade Paperback $16.00).
Avery Bardot steps off the plane in Rome, looking for a fresh start. She’s left behind a soon-to-be ex-husband in Boston and plans to spend the summer with her best friend Daisy, licking her wounds—and perhaps a gelato or two. But when her American-expat friend throws her a welcome party on her first night, Avery’s thrown for a loop when she sees a man she never thought she’d see again: Italian architect Marcello Bianchi.
Marcello was the man—the one who got away. And now her past is colliding with her present, a present where she should be mourning the loss of her marriage and—hey, that fettuccine is delicious! And so is Marcello…
Slipping easily into the good life of summertime in Rome, Avery spends her days exploring a city that makes art historians swoon, and her nights swooning over her unexpected what was old is new again romance. It’s heady, it’s fevered, it’s wanton, and it’s crazy. But could this really be her new life? Or is it just a temporary reprieve before returning to the land of twin-set cardigans and crustless sandwiches?
A celebration of great friendship, passionate romance, and wonderful food, Roman Crazy is a lighthearted story of second chances and living life to the fullest.
Avery has just caught her husband, Daniel in the act cheating on her. Afterwards she decided to do some soul searching in Rome. She has a best friend,Daisy who lives out there. While in Rome she reconnects with her lost love, Marcello.
What I liked about this story besides the romance was the self discovery! Avery lost herself in her marriage. She gave up what made her happy so she could be the perfect wife. She put her husbands needs, goals and wants before her and that's never a good thing IMO. I'm happy Avery discovered what she wanted and stood strong in her convictions. Her character grew a lot in this book and I loved every minute! The romance between Avery and Marcello was very hot and sweet. Glad they both got the second chance to make things right!
Another upside while reading this book was that I felt I was there in Rome. The detail to description was so vivid. I found myself hungry while reading and now want to book a trip to Rome! If you are looking for a book that will lift your spirits this book is for you!
