About Roman Crazy…

Roman CrazyAvery 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.

Praise for Roman Crazy

“I went CRAZY over Roman Crazy—this is simply a perfect romance!”

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst

Roman Crazy is a laugh out loud romantic comedy about second chances, friendship, and the beauty of Rome. You won’t simply read this novel, you’ll devour it as Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci transport you to Italy and guide you on an unforgettable adventure.”

—Sylvain Reynard, New York Times, USA Today, and #1 international bestselling author of Gabriel’s Inferno and the Florentine series

“Nina Bocci and Alice Clayton wrote a grown-up romance that is heartfelt, sexy, and transportive. As a bonus, the city of Rome is as much of a character as the swoony Marcello and the relatable Avery.”

—Jen Frederick, USA Today bestselling author
