Pippa is in Italy for the summer and, despite her parents’ wishes, she has no intention of just studying the local art! She has a list of things of her own to do: from swimming in the Mediterranean Sea to getting a makeover – and falling for an Italian boy! As Pippa explores the dramatic ruins of Rome and Pompeii, she is swept into her own drama with two guys: an irresistible local she knows is nothing but trouble and a cute American archaeology student . . . Will she find her true love?
The perfect reckless romance to enjoy whether you are home or abroad.
This was a stinkin' cute read.
Not the most eloquent way to start a review but there you have it, this was adorable and I had so much fun reading it. It was exactly what I needed when I needed it. Light, airy, fun, friendship to love romance, great characters, gorgeous backdrop...perfect read. In fact this is the perfect spring/summer read. It puts you in the mood to have fun and remember what it was like to fall in love and become your own person.
I adored Pippa and Darren and I just couldn't get enough of them. Their soft friendship, the chance encounters, the humor, the adventure, the setting, gah! This was such a fantastic read.
I really look forward to reading more from this author in the future because I live for reads like this one. They make me smile, they make me giggle and most of all they make my heart met and brim over with happiness.
