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.
10 Reasons to read Roman Crazy
- It takes place in Italy. In the SUMMER! I think I need myself a little Italian vacation.
- Avery is a character you can relate to. Many of us has probably felt the things she has at some point.
- Daisy, Avery’s best friend, is hysterical. I love her, and I love the friendship they have.
- Marcello…. hot Italian… Enough said! But seriously, I loved him. He’s sweet, demanding, and takes Avery on so many adventures.
- Steamy scenes…. Seriously the sparks with these two fly off the pages.
- You feel like you are walking the streets of Rome with the characters.
- It’s slightly emotional. The events that happen are hard for anyone to come to terms with.
- The opening line of Chapter 1 is insane! And made me want to read the book that much more.
- The food! I need food like this in my life, stat!
- I was going to put something else here, but it slipped my mind. Just read it. We get the same humor and story that we are used to with Clayton, and I was super happy that the voice wasn’t disconnected with having two authors write this one.
