“It’s packed full of light fun and it’s incredibly sweet.”
~ Under the Covers

What a fun ride this was!  Roman Crazy had everything I look for in a summer read.  It’s packed full of light fun and it’s incredibly sweet.  Our heroine, Avery, finds her perfect society husband having sex with his secretary.  After filing for divorce and while trying to pick up the pieces left of her life, a life she had entirely devoted to being his wife, she needs time to find who she is again.  And she does that by visiting her best friend living in Italy.  What she didn’t expect was to find the one man she truly ever loved and left behind there.

If you love to read a book and be completely transported to another place, then ROMAN CRAZY is the book for you.  The setting came to life within these pages, the feelings of the people and the places slowly transformed our heroine, and we saw it all through her eyes.  I LOVED that about this book and I honestly can’t wait to see more of it in the next one in the series.

The story doesn’t have to jump through too many hoops.  It’s a straightforward second chance at love story that will make you fall in love, both then and now.  We get small glimpses into what Marcello and Avery really meant to each other when they were nothing but kids (ok they were in college, but still) and it’s a great contrast to who they are now.  Some things they lost along the way that they need to regain.  But the chemistry between them hasn’t changed and you can feel it all the way.  It also made for a stronger connection in such a short amount of time because those deep feelings never went away.

But aside from the romance, and the sexy as hell Italian hero, I really enjoyed Avery’s journey to find herself again.  She spent so many years in the shadow of a man who wasn’t right for her, and she kept putting her wants aside until they were buried.  The journey of rediscovery for her was nice to experience and it shines a light on the importance of always doing what makes you happy and fulfills your soul.  Never changing for another person.  Becoming independent again.  And letting loose some.

There many adorable moments in this book that put a smile on my face.  It’s definitely a feel good, sexy romance and I hope you enjoy it as well.

About Nina Bocci

Nina Bocci is a novelist, publicist, eternal optimist, unabashed lipgloss enthusiast, constant apologist, and a hopeless romanticist. She has too many college degrees that she’s not using, and a Lego addiction that she blames on her son.

About Alice Clayton

Alice Clayton is a novelist with an unholy love for her KitchenAid mixer. Making her home in St Louis, she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up afterwards, and is trying desperately to get her long time boyfriend to make her an honest woman. Hi sweetie!!

After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and national educator for a major cosmetics company, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career, writer. Combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, The Redhead Series.

Alice has penned three novels, The Unidentified Redhead,The Redhead Revealed, and coming soon in November 2012, Wallbanger. She thinks you should purchase them immediately. She’s not kidding, not even a little bit. Everyone needs some comedic erotica in their lives. She is hard at work on the third book in The Redhead Series, set to release in Spring of 2013, continuing the saucy and sexual escapades of everyone’s favorite couple, Jack and Grace.

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast, make sure you check them out at or over on iTunes. 3 women rushing towards their forties still acting like teenagers. A saucy little mix of sex, love, relationships, pop cultural, celebrity gossip and All Things Jake Ryan.

Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Mary’s, 8 hours of sleep, and a good pounding.

Finally Alice would also like all her readers and listeners to help her convince Mt. Alice that the only other thing that would make her truly happy is finally bringing home a Bernese Mountain Dog. She is totally serious. And done talking about herself in the third person...

  1. Now I REALLY want a read this one. My dream is to visit Italy (and my son insists that we move there, not to Canada, if Trump somehow becomes president). However, the book is a bit pricey for my budget so I’ll have to wait for the price to drop. But definitely adding this to my mountainous TBR pile!
