Gabriella Conte’s Italian husband cheated her out of the beautiful and successful life ahe had created. Seeking refuge in Rome with her best friend Maria, she swears off romance. She just never expected to meet Silvio and she never imagined to have an overwhelming attraction. Against the backdrop of one of the world’s most romantic cities, can they rediscover their faith and trust in love?
Who doesn’t love an exotic romance in the most romantic city of the world? The plot has been built along a beautiful backdrop that will definitely make it enticing for the readers. And, the strong and passionate lead characters definitely adds dimensions to the picture. But did I love the book? I can’t really say. Everything worked; the story, the characters, their chemistry and romance, the setting. And yet, I didn’t find myself liking the book. Maybe it’s the style of narrating the story that detracting my attention; I usually like the narration of story on behalf of both the characters. But, somehow in this case, the narration of story felt repetitive on behalf of both the characters. It really is detracting from the whole enjoyable factor. It doesn’t mean that I do not like the characters. But, somehow they didn’t level the field for me.
The title and cover image speaks for the setting and the romance that has been built around it.
My opinion: It’s a nice book. But therr is nothing extraordinary about it.
My rating: 3 out of 5
