"OH MY GOSH! I am in loooove with this book!! I need more of Silvio and Gaby!!...It was so deliciously sexy!" - Whitney at

Passion and Love the Italian Way - Oh yes, love the Italian way, passion, drama, a pinch of humor and living life to the fullest, To Rome with Love by Mandi Benet is a colorful tale of romance and second chances. Mandi treats each word and each page as part a beautiful song to love with embellished descriptions, heightened emotions and simply sigh-worthy moments of heat, passion and even play. Her characters are fully developed and come to life in glorious color! - Top 500 Reviewer/Tome Tender

The chemistry between Gaby and Silvio is steamy and sizzling with just the right amount of wit . . . The setting in Rome and Gaby's knowledge of food definitely lifts the overall story to a delicious height.  - Ind'Tale Magazine

Four stars. Good read. A little bit of everything for everyone. Liked the characters, the story flow. Love anything Italian! - Netgalley reviewer Rhonda Gothier

This book gives out so many sparks but once the fire gets going . . . uf! - Lilly's Book World

This is a nice in depth romance where Rome is a welcome character. Love tries to bloom between a handsome, arrogant, Italian man and a 40-ish American woman, both still reeling from failed marriages. I loved the culinary info, the bits of Italian language, and the love affair with Italy, as well as the smoldering heat between Gaby and Silvio. Maria is the best friend every woman would like to have. - Debra Lawson, Library Director

I liked the hero and heroine, as well as many of the other characters, & the word pictures are fabulous. My mouth watered at the descriptions of various Italian gourmet foods, & the descriptions of the countryside, the tourist stops, the wonderful old buildings. Were equally enticing for one who has never been to Rome. I think you'll like this one, and the sex is pretty good too! -  Alberta at Manic Readers

The scenes were beautifully written, and I could easily picture them. The attraction between Silvio and Gaby was a very slow burn, and as each character kept mistaking the other's interest, it took a while to take off.  The other characters added humor and depth to the story. If you're looking for a little Italian romance, then To Rome With Love is a good book to read.  - Julie B at The Reading Café

To Rome With Love is an excellent armchair travel book with wonderful depictions of the palazzos, ancient streets, trattorias, people and food. It also is a wonderful romance that shows two people who both have had heartache from relationships as they fight falling for each other even though there does not seem to be much either of them can do about it. Mostly, it is a story that rings very true and which I look forward to digging out and reading over and over when I want to remember Rome, Italy. - Cheryl Waters, Goodreads Reviewer

This is very character emotion driven with some fun moments, sexy moments and sweet moments. The love story is slow in building but allows us to explore the characters and see who they really are and how they interact outside of intimacy. I love how they put each other in place and help each other heal. How in the end Silvio is able to heal and fight for what he wants and show Gaby he wants and loves her. ... a wonderful story of healing, moving on, taking a chance on love and finding the one that is strong enough to be all you need. - Books Are Love

I loved that the book also features lots of food and cooking thanks to Gaby's profession as a chef and the flavours and sights of Rome feel like they are coming to life from the pages of the book. This was a great little love story to entertain my train journeys as I followed the will they won't they situation develop - it was a bit of a rollercoaster relationship but a worthy conclusion that had me holding on to the last page. - Amy, Compelling Reads

AH! This book was SOOOO good. Steamy, sexy, sweet, and delicious! And that cover!

To Rome With Love tells the story of Gabriela and Silvio who are both going through divorces after their spouses cheated. Gaby is taking some time to visit her best friend Maria, and her husband Carlo, in Rome, where she meets the rude and arrogant Silvio, Carlo’s cousin. They end up working together catering Carlo’s daughters wedding, spending time grocery shopping, cooking, and sightseeing, per Maria’s demands!

Silvio has a face that has been “finely carved by the angels”, educated in art history at Oxford, and the kind of sexy that knows he’s sexy. Gaby is a chef, with curves in all the right places, curly blond hair, unique lilac eyes, but sees herself inadequate and unsexy compared to other women. And she’s sure to let Silvio know when he’s being rude and arrogant! I really liked Gaby’s personality. She was real and genuine.

The two can’t deny the chemistry between them no matter how much they want to. They frustrated me so much though! The passion between them was {HOT} & incredible, but every single time one of them had to go and screw things up, can’t they just admit to each other that they’re in love?! Gaby doesn’t want to get in a relationship and have her heart crushed again, especially by another Italian man. As for Silvio, Gaby is unlike any woman he’s ever been interested in and that scares him. Can they just enjoy the time they have, no strings attached, no labels? Or do they feel they have something more?

The writing style and descriptions were beautiful. One of my favorite lines describes the moon as a “scoop of tangerine sorbet” hanging in the sky.

I love this book! This is exactly the kind of romance I yearn for. Give me a place that speaks the language of love, like the city of Rome, and my suitcases are packed. Package my romantic interlude with unforgettable paintings and architecture, and throw in a palace, and there is nothing more I need. However, when you add in an irresistible academic, gorgeous, sexy, brilliant Italian, well, now I’m on my knees.
Gabriella is forty and this has not been a very good year. Newly divorced from her Italian restaurant owner partner, who’s left her for a younger woman, she is definitely not in a good place. She’s as vulnerable and insecure as a woman can be, and she definitely isn’t looking for love, in fact, she believes she will never love again.
THE CURE: She visits her best friend, Maria, who’s married to Carlo, a super-wealthy scion of a major Roman family. Gaby is seeking a peaceful place to recover and rethink her life. That is, until in walks Carlo’s cousin, the super-dashing, sexy, arrogant, recently divorced… Silvio. Ah, Silvio, truly I’m in love. Art history was my major and I’d have cut off my…well let’s not talk about cutting things off, let’s talk about Silvio. Silvio who treats Gaby with disdain, teasing her, ruffling her feathers, anything to get her reaction. Suddenly, our beaten down heroine shows her spunk by giving as good as she gets, throwing Silvio for a loop. Once thrown, he’s irresistibly drawn, although he fights his attraction every step of the way.
Now, that I have your attention, I invite you to read this charming, sophisticated romance, with just the right amount of earth-shattering sex, fire, food (Mama mia, the food!) and slip away for a few hours to the magical Eternal City of Rome.

This was such a fun, feel-good romance to read. It takes place in Rome and I honestly felt like the author did an amazing job bringing the reader into Italy and the Italian culture. She was so descriptive with the scenery, the food (Gaby is a chef and Silvio loves cooking) and the family life- I felt like I was there with the characters. I think I even picked up some Italian words, because Mandi is excellent at incorporating the language throughout the book.

I really enjoyed the sarcastic banter that took place between Gaby and Silvio. At times, it was hysterical the way that they would talk to each other and avoid talking about their feelings. Since both of them were recently coming out of marriages which ended because of their spouse’s infidelity, they found themselves having difficulty taking that next step with each other. That is completely understandable considering the heartbreak that they both went through. They felt the need to guard their emotions. For Gaby, she knew that she was only in Italy for a short time staying with her best friend Maria, so she didn’t really see the point in taking things with Silvio to the next level. The chemistry and attraction was definitely there though, it was electric. There were so many instances where they were so close to kissing or admitting their feelings for one another, but then some one or something would interrupt them. Silvio was quite a bit more direct in how interested he was in Gaby, and some of the things that came out of his mouth made my heart race! I could almost hear his Italian voice as he spoke softly into Gaby’s ear- yumm!

I give To Rome with Love 4 silver buckles!

If you are looking for something fun and sexy to read, while also learning a bit about Italian culture, then definitely read this book. You won’t be disappointed!
