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.
This is a fabulous book by two wonderful ladies. Their “voices” blended together perfectly and I devoured this book. It’s cute, light hearted and witty. It’s full of the stuff that make 2nd chance romances as popular as they are.
I loved Avery and how strong she was through out this whole book. Marcello was great and I’m so glad I got to meet him. There are some really good swoon worthy scenes in this book that made me grin so much. I loved it.
My only complaints and reason for marking it down to 4 stars is that I wish was the first “I Love You” wasn’t a fade to black/ being told it happened and not shown. I also wish we would of gotten to see more of Marcello. I mean he was in it but I feel he could of been in it a bit more. I love that this book was about Avery and her journey(great stuff btw) but she is “Roman Crazy” and we didn’t see much of the “Roman”.
Alice and Nina did an outstanding job and I can’t wait to read more from them. Rome is on my bucket list of places to go. With this book, I felt like I was there and now I want to go there so much more.
