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?

My Review


Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci is a new, standalone romance novel.

Choices were made, decisions were cemented, and paths were chosen. But no one said I had to stay running on that particular hamster wheel.

The first few lines of Roman Crazy hooked me like a seasoned fisherman. The next chapters tickled my funny bone, made me gasp, and had my eyes permanently glued to my Kindle; this book was a definite could-not-be-put-down hit.

The backdrop of Rome was painted so exquisitely by words that it caused me to think a copy of this novel should be included in the tourist’s packet for the fair city of Rome. Everyone who received it would immediately book a trip with a tour guide to help them find each novelty location named, and a man like Marcello. Oh man, speaking of Marcello, I could picture and hear him throughout every dialogue exchange, and it was with wonderment each time. And who couldn’t fall for Avery. She was smart and savvy, getting her footing in life again, and beginning to allow herself to dream once more. The combination of these two characters mirrored the city in which they found each other again, graceful, surprising, romantic, and charming.

Roman Crazy was a second chance at love, old friendships, and fulfilling dreams. It offered this reader everything a girl needs…a good friend, a beautiful city, and cherished romance.
