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.
Roxie and Jen’s Review
We want to move to Italy. Yes we said it. And although we are both happily married, we would love to get lost in Rome with Marcello…
We want to hop on a back of a scooter and eat pizza at Pizzarium Bonci. Walk around and explore everything this city has to offer.
Nina Bocci and Alice Clayton took us on a second chance love story set in beautiful Italy.
Avery Bardot catches her husband with his pants down and dick deep in his secretary. As her carefully built life in Boston crumbles down, she flees to her friend Daisy, who resides in Rome. Soon she faces the man she never thought she would see again, the one that got away….
Marcello Bianchi. Even his name has us swooning!!
“Yes, you decide. You decide it all: the how, the when, the where, the how many times, and the how loud I’ll scream. Careful, Avery . . .”
We are soon on a journey of a love rediscovered while being taken on a tour of Rome by these 2 authors. It was amazing to go on this adventure with Avery as not only she finds love but finds herself again.
What was once lost under obligations and marriage, is resurfaced as Avery discovers a new city, her passion and friendships.
Nina Bocci and Alice Clayton gave us Italy. We tasted the food, smelled the air, hopped on the bus. They painted an imaginary so authentic and picturesque that we were there for this adventure.
We loved Avery’s journey as she finds the woman she once was and grabs life with open arms.
“For the first time in a very long time, I felt treasured.”
If you are looking for a funny, sweet second chance love story and want to be swept away by an Italian hottie, pick up Roman Crazy and get lost in Italy.
