Review: Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Politan

Tuesday, October 11, 2016


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
Let me start off with a warning: You cannot read this book unless your fridge is stocked with sweets. Honestly. I blame the authors for the five pounds I gained while reading this book. Roman Crazy had me googling different pastries from Rome every five minutes- I literally wanted to move to Rome after the third search.

Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci are an amazing duo. Roman Crazy was the perfect touch of funny, sexy and romantic. It made me want to fall in love, travel the world and eat every single flaky pastry that exists in Rome. I want a best friend that is as wonderful as Daisy and don’t even get me started on Marcello. Marcello was so sweet and just picturing the way he looked and how he sounded when he said 'tesoro' or 'Avery' had me just about swooning. I love second chance romances so much and books like this are honestly the reason why. The characters hadn't seen each other in YEARS and yet when they decided to put the past in the past, it was like they were never apart. They fit together perfectly and they have this amazing understanding of each others passions. Marcello tried to deny his feelings at first and although he made a valiant effort, it was no use. Avery was his "one that got away" and watching them reconnect like they had never lost touch made my heart soar. This entire book made my heart soar and made me long for an adventure. I absolutely loved it and I would honestly recommend this to you guys.
