What's the saying again . . . when in Rome, do a Roman?

How did a self-orchestrated gap year turn into a less-than-enthralling lifestyle as a couch potato at her parents' house? Determined to get motivated and join life again, Sammi Shorten books a budget Bellissimo Tour to Rome, the Eternal City. What she hadn't signed up for was being stuck with an eclectic group of binge-drinking foreigners in a bed-bug-infested hostel from hell. Things in Rome really couldn't get much worse . . . could they?

When plans go completely awry Sammi's left with only one place to turn, and it's the one place Sammi really doesn't want to turn - to the man who might very well get her into the worst trouble of all: the gorgeous local tour guide, Marcello Bambozzi.

This series! I love it sooooo much! Each book features an Aussie girl, jetting off to another country and they happen to find love. In When in Rome, Sammi winds up in the trip from hell, and the only bright side to her trip is Marcello Bambozzi... The hot as hell Italian, who seemed to show up when she needed someone.

Sammi's trip was a bit awkward; she found herself in a dingy hotel but she also seemed to get herself into embarrassing situations that made her feel like an outcast. Some of these situations were quite amusing, but each time Sammi pulled herself together and tried to not let it effect her too much. She was able to see some of the sites of Rome, and lucky for Sammi, she had the perfect guide in Marcello.

Marcello was a sexy and sweet guy that took a bit of interest in Sammi. He could see that she was someone different, and he liked the unkempt and unfiltered Aussie girl. These two had great chemistry and seemed to gel well together, despite being from different countries.

CJ Duggan is an Australian author that I must read each time she releases a new book. Each book in the Heart of the City series has been a light hearted read, with plenty of entertainment from cover to cover, featuring amusing moments and a few sexy scenes to keep the reader hooked. The characters feel real and I love visiting different cities all over the world. I am dying for more from this world, and cannot wait for Hollywood Heartbreak next!

This was an amusing moment! A little giggle and a heap of chemistry!

I shook my head. ‘I can’t believe you let me take you back to my squalid, bug-infested bedroom when you have this literally a stone’s throw away.’
Marcello’s chest vibrated against me. ‘Well, you know what they say?’
‘You do it with your eyes closed?’
Marcello shook his head. ‘No. Nothing worthwhile was ever easy. Also, I couldn’t wait any longer.’
‘Aha! So that’s why you wanted to take the elevator tonight.’
‘What can I say? I’m an impatient man.’
And with that he scooped me up from the floor, lifting me into his arms and spinning me around towards his bed, dumping me on the mattress in a fit of giggles. Collapsing on top of me, he caged me in with his arms.
‘Stop laughing, I am trying to seduce you,’ he said, struggling to keep a straight face.
‘Oh, sorry,’ I said, trying to breathe as I wiped the tears from my cheeks.
