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.

10+ ROMAN STARS!
I need a hug. Maybe 100 hugs. And not because I’m sad or I was broken or anything, in the contrary I WAS COMPLETED. This book was full of all my dreams. Beauty, Roman Crazy was pure beauty in the most delightful way. I loved every word, every moment, and every laugh, just EVERYTHING. This is the kind of book that you live each moment as your own, a book so easy to lose yourself in and escape, but this time to Italy. If you are an Italy and an Italian hero lover like me, is really hard to put in words all this book will make you feel. I LOVED IT. I left my heart in Rome, Roman Crazy was like a free ticket to Italy.
My Italian bible, that’s Roman Crazy for me. Despite of all the romance, all the beauty of Italy and all the funny stuff this book hits deep spots inside of you. This book teaches us how is never too late to follow your dreams, how we all deserve second chances at love, at life… at everything. When a romantic comedy makes me sob it’s when I know it hit all the right places.
Avery is a woman trapped on a marriage she never wanted but circumstances made her make that choice. When she decides to leave her husband for good, her best friend suggest her to go Italy where she lives. Avery accepts, but the last person she thought she’ll see in Italy is her long lost love Marcello Bianchi. I’ll let the book tell you the rest.
Avery is an artist, a woman who stopped her life and dreams to dedicate her life to a marriage with a guy she never loved. Avery is one of those heroines you read and think: I WANT TO BE HER WHEN I GROW UP. Even though she was not perfect, and she kind of frustrated me from time to time, she was literally the mirror of some of us. Sometimes we are trapped on things we think is best for us when really is not, and sometimes drastic things need to happen for us to make a change. Avery thought she was not worth retaking her passion for art or even having Marcello but she learned and by her learning she teaches us to be never be afraid of changes, of second chances or starting over. SHE IS MY HERO.
Marcello is everything you’ll want in a hero. First of Italian, then he’s sweet and sexy and broken hearted over Avery… he was just so D R E A M Y. He’s mine. Enough said.
Want a free trip to Italy, with some sexy Italian hero? Then pick up Roman Crazy. Roman Crazy invites you to sit down get comfy, some good Italian classics and just enjoy. You’ll have the time of your life.
