World famous, Domenic Varezzi is used to calling the shots. His clients trust his instincts and they’re willing to pay for the best. But while his career is thriving, his personal life has been lackluster at best. Hoping Kate could be the answer he’s been looking for, he’s determined to win her over. Every challenge she sends his way drives him to break through her tough-as-nails exterior to reach the vulnerable heart that matches his own.
Surrounded by the beauty and magic of Italy’s “Eternal City,” a foundation begins to form that could lead to a lifetime partnership, both in business and in love. Until Domenic’s past comes back to haunt the present and threatens to destroy everything.
My Book Review:
If you are looking for a delightful romantic story set in the "Eternal City" of Rome, Italy, then look no further, When in Rome is the book for you!
When in Rome is a thoroughly entertaining romantic tale that will easily keep the reader turning the pages. The story is told in the first person narrative by sassy Kate Miller, an Atlanta based photographer, who joins an exclusive fashion photo shoot in Rome, Italy with the world famous director, Domenic Varezzi. The reader is taken along for the ride as Kate embarks on a journey of personal discovery, and gets an unexpected chance at true love!
I really enjoyed following Kate and Domenic's story. I couldn't help but enjoy watching the chemistry that developed between them, especially when Domenic accepts Kate's intriguing cat and mouse challenges, because he is determined to win Kate's love. And even when Domenic's past comes back to haunt him, I couldn't help but cheer them on as they fought to overcome the obstacles that stood in their way to getting a lifetime partnership in business and love.
When in Rome is a fast paced and fun novella that has engaging characters, humorous interactions and witty dialogue, flashbacks to the past and secrets that come to the surface, drama, suspense, and a sweet romance. The author provides the reader with a rich description of the beautiful setting of the "Eternal City" of Rome, Italy, that will make them long to visit the sights and sounds of this historic city for themselves.
When in Rome is an enjoyable and lighthearted romance story that will leave a smile on your face.
When in Rome is the second book in the Sweet Somethings series, and can be a stand alone read.
