Ciao For Now: A Romantic Comedy
About this deal
Her school (clearly it is FIT but it is never named) has a competition where the top 3 fashion design students go to Rome and intern at a top fashion house and get advice and ideas for creating a 5 piece mini-collection where one will be named the winner. No scheduled meetings, no assigned readings, no formal discussions, just a fun filled group of avid readers with a shared interest: https://facebook. There is lots of witty banter and laugh-out-loud moments, and it doesn’t hurt that Matteo was quite 🔥. I seriously had so much second-hand embarrassment for Violet, who stumbles and ultimately destroys Matt’s laptop in a cafe. She was a preschool teacher for seven years and is now focusing full-time on combining her two great passions -– writing swoon-worthy love stories and making people laugh.
Shocked to see Matt again, Violet quickly discovers Matt (or as his mother reveals — Matteo) is the professor’s son and will also be staying at the apartment while she is there. After a first rancorous meeting they find out Violet is spending the month at Matt's mother's villa, as is Matt.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. So when she lands an internship at an up-and-coming fashion brand in Rome, she brings her A game to Italy.
The dialogue is witty and engaging - it’s the kind of conversation that makes you forget you’re reading a book and not standing right there listening to the conversation! I loved the focus on empowering the main character, Violet, and showing her journey in trying to find out who she is and what she wants. Violet Luciano, a passionate fashion student, is working as an intern at a popular fashion brand in Rome, Italy, and competing with two other classrooms for a job at a New York label. I read a lot of contemporary and historical, both adult and YA, and I've also been enjoying more and more fantasy lately.This extremely swoon-worthy, engaging, inspirational romcom is absolutely one of my favorite works by Kate Bromley! I hope you all were able to enjoy the weekend and, most importantly, spend some quality time reading good books. Still, this was a lot of fun, and neither of the MCs give up everything for one another, instead they pledge to prioritize their relationship alongside their demanding careers and their friends and families. While Violet and Matt do have some great moments together and some really fun banter, I didn’t feel like the romance was strong enough. Maybe if there would have been an epilogue that showed some of their future and where they ended up, I would have felt different?
Nothing feels better to me than when you crack open a book and it grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go!Pair with a glass of Prosecco or an aperol spritz and a plate of pasta, and you’ll have the perfect reading experience. I adored this quick and easy read and am looking forward to reading more from Kate Bromley’s backlist! Fresh off winning her placement along with two of her classmates, Violet is ready to embrace everything Rome has to offer — the food, the inspiration, and apparently the floor of a café as she face plants into a table after believing she has seen her ex half way across the world.

My friend Dot decided she wanted to study Italian too and she joined me on the first portion of my journey. I was very excited by the prospect but I did not know what it would be like to be alone in a different country. Ciao For Now is an absolute heart warming romcom that focuses on Violet, an almost 30 year old who feels behind in life. His snark and humor and personality shot off the page and into my heart, and he was definitely the most dynamic and interesting person in this book. There is a little bit of spice in the story but nothing too crazy, and the chemistry between the characters is off the chart.I loved when the characters were sightseeing, and found it to be so much more entertaining than all the fashion talk.
