Book Review ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

When Gaby Conteโ€™s Italian husband, Danieli, abandons her for a young Peruvian waitress at a restaurant they co-own in San Francisco, Gaby seeks refuge in Rome with her best friend, Maria. There, she swears off romance for a long while and Italian men forever. Thatโ€™s until she meets Silvio, who belongs to an old, aristocratic Roman family and lives in a palace alongside the best private art collection in Rome. Silvio, who is the cousin of Mariaโ€™s husband, is going through his own divorce. Heโ€™s gorgeous, of course, which Gaby doesnโ€™t tell him. And arrogant and condescending, which she does. The last thing Gaby needs is more Italian trouble, but the attraction is instant and powerful, and against the backdrop of one of the worldโ€™s most romantic cities, both tryโ€”and failโ€”to resist the chemistry between them. But both Gaby and Silvio have made a rule never to make the mistake of trusting in love again. Will they realize some rules are made just to be broken?



To Rome With Love by Mandi Benet is the first book in her new Love in the City series. Oh dear ! First impressions that Gaby has of Silvio is lust, then when he opens his mouth, her illusions are shattered, he is an arrogant man. And  Gaby is so not interested. 

After raising their twins girls and helping her husband create and run three restaurants in San Francisco, her husband thanks her by divorcing her and marrying the waitress he was having an affair with! 

Escaping to Italy to visit a friend Gaby is not interested in having fun, or make company, she just wants to lick her wounds, find some peace and rebuild her life.  

Silvio is also recovering from a divorce, so the last thing he wants is his cousins wife trying to play matchmaker. And anyway she is nothing like his type, but there is something about her that keeps her on Silvioโ€™s mind. 

The scenes were beautifully written, and I could easily picture the scenes that the author had written. The attraction between Silvio and Gaby was a very slow burn, and as each character kept mistaking the others interest, it took a while to take off.  The other characters added humour and depth to the story. 

So if your looking for a little Italian romance, then To Rome With Love is a good book to read.
