Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton & Nina Bocci Review

“An uproariously comedic and deliciously whimsical romp only this pair could deliver… Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci have struck gold.”
—Christina Lauren, New York Times and International Bestselling Author of Beautiful Bastard

By Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci

A delicious, sexy, laugh-out-loud modern romance about a newly single woman and her journey to find love again in ROMAN CRAZY from New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton and debut author Nina Bocci (Gallery Books; on sale September 13, 2016; Trade Paperback $16.00).

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.

More Praise for Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci

There are books that make you laugh out loud, make you teary, make you hot and bothered, make you smile. And then there are books that make you want to crawl inside them and live within their pages. That’s what Roman Crazy is.”
New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled series, Emma Chase

Roman Crazy is a sexy, steamy slow burn. Pack your suitcase and get ready for a wild ride through the streets of Rome with a hot-as-sin leading man. I want to clone Marcello and keep him forever. A visceral reading experience that takes you from the cobbled streets of Rome to the bedroom and everywhere in between. Get your fans out! Five stars of smolder.”
—Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

“Bocci and Clayton know how to craft an amazing romance! The beautiful descriptions of Rome will make you feel like you are on vacation. This book it a spa visit and a best friend all wrapped up into a funny, sexy, life-affirming bundle. 1-Click the heck out of Roman Crazy.”
—Debra Anastasia, author of the Poughkeepsie series

Roman Crazy is a sexy, delicious tour through Italy as well as the human heart. Marcello and Avery are as impossible to resist as a double scoop of gelato. Like fine Italian food, Roman Crazy should be gobbled up as quickly as possible.”
—Sarina Bowen, USA Today bestselling author of Rookie Move

Roman Crazy (Broads Abroad, #1)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Roman Crazy is majorly RomCom ChickLit. If you like chick flicks and romantic comedies when choosing a movie, this is definitely a book for you.
Although I have no idea what it’s like to be super wealthy or just hop on a plane out of the country, I liked those parts. This allowed the reader to experience so many gorgeous things. Italy has been one of my top two dream destinations for years, and this story only made me want to go there more. I loved experiencing everything through Avery, especially the way she left her cheating husband and ran into an old flame. Everything in Rome is über romantic. Stylish fashion, wonderful friends, beautiful art and delicious food are abundant, and love is totally in the air.
