Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci Review
Roman Crazy - Nina Bocci,Alice Clayton

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 againromance. 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.

 

Review

While I love the setting and the female friendship, I never settled into this book.

It felt more like Women's Fiction or Chic Lit than romance to be.

I am not a huge fan of second chance romance but I do like Clayton's sense of funny and banter. 

Sun drenched and fun.

 

I was given this book for my honest review. So., there you have it.

Book 54/100: I Love You Like Crazy Cakes by Rose Lewis
I Love You Like Crazy Cakes - Rose A. Lewis,Jane Dyer

A beautiful, child-friendly book about Chinese adoption written in the second-person from a mother to her daughter. Illustrations are adorable. Couldn't manage to read this one aloud without choking up a bit!

Great Characters
CRAZY LOVE - A New Adult Box Set: Dazzled, Summer of Seventeen, Playing in the Rain - Jane Harvey-Berrick

Crazy love is a collection of three beautifully written, coming of age tales. The writing style pulled me in and the character development was some of the best that I've ever seen. The only drawback, for me, was that some things seemed to be a little more drawn out than necessary. Other than that, all three stories are worthwhile reads and are jam packed with witty dialogue, some laugh out loud funny, a bit of steam, great big tears, and characters that I won't soon forget.

Kiss Me Crazy (The Fitzgerald Family) by E.B. Walters
Kiss Me Crazy - E.B. Walters,Ednah Walters

 

Years of unrequited love get the chance to become the love of a lifetime.  If heartbreaking secrets don't ruin that chance. Baron and Kara were meant to be together, but the timing never seemed to be right.  Fast forward five years, a heartbreaking betrayal and an unexpected request land them on a course to happily ever after.  Until the past sets about destroying their chance at a future. Behind the wealth and ambition, is a family who share a deep bond.  Family first is their motto and they live by those words.  Kiss Me Crazy is not overly sexual but the hint of temptation is always evident and the emotions  Ms. Walters puts into it, forever shines through.  Adding audio is an even greater thrill because, Ms. Gilbert gives voice to the heart of the journey with her sultry delivery and winning narrative.

Amelia Rules!
The Whole World's Crazy (Amelia Rules! Book 1) - Jimmy Gownley,Jimmy Gownley

 

 

Amelia is a tough kid and she is going thru a lot, her parents just got divorced, she moved from New York City to a small town in Pennsylvania, and she is trying to navigate a new school. Amelia isn't perfect, she has selfish moments and generous moments. She makes new friends who help her deal with bullies, gym class, and family trips.

 

I really enjoyed this book. Amelia goes through tough times, and she shows real emotions and feelings. Her character isn't sugar coated or made to seem perfect.

 

Kids will recognize parts of themselves in this book, and realize that others are going through similar experiences.
