ARC Review:5 ★'s for Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci

  Happy Release Day to
Alice Clayton & Nina Bocci
Roman Crazy

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.


What I thought about Roman Crazy

 I'm going to make this review short and sweet -- I absolutely loved this story!  It's a wonderful feel-good second chance romance set it Italy, which makes for a somewhat exotic story. After Avery discovers her husband's cheating, she flees to Rome to visit with her best friend and get over her husband.  There's a really nice friendship thing going on in Roman Crazy, too. 

Things get really interesting when the lover she left to marry her husband happens to also work with Avery's best friend.  What follows is a really sweet story of two people who are made for each other spending time falling in love all over again. The pacing was perfect and kept everything moving along while somehow letting the reader revel in the love that sparks between Marcello and Avery.

Roman Crazy left me satisfied and reminded me of those wonderful days of falling in love with your soulmate, when life is so very, very good. If you are looking for a really sweet romance that's high on happiness and low on drama, you just might enjoy this title as much as I did.

I can't give a better endorsement of this romance than that. And did I mention that Marcello is absolutely dreamy? *sigh*
