The Women Who Love Rome
Rome is a rich, successful movie producer, accustomed to having his way; Thursday is sweet, naive, and eager to please. When the two ex-lovers cross paths, it’s love at first sight all over again.
After an explosive reunion, Thursday learns that Rome now shares his home with two ladyloves and has every intention of making her his newest conquest. Together, they embark on a daring, unorthodox living arrangement that pushes the boundaries of lust, love, and the forbidden.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to share your man with two other women? Not only to share him, but to actually all live in the same house, sleep in the same bed and even all shower together? I can't actually say that I have, but that's the idea behind the women who love Rome.
Fortunately, this book doesn't take itself too seriously. There is quite a bit of comedy and humor in the plot and I think that really helps. In many ways, this is a tongue in cheek fun book. It does touch on jealousy and how the women involved in such a relationship might feel about each other. Interestingly, despite all of the bed, shower and man sharing, there isn't a great deal of sex in this book. Although it gets a mention, it's not really what the story is about.
All of the characters in this book have ridiculous names. We have India; not too bad, Rome; slightly stupid, Storm; quite silly and Thursday I'm sorry what? Maybe they match a book that doesn't take itself too seriously. Although I thought this was a fun, quick read, I think that I might have taken to it more if I'd have liked it more if I'd have liked the characters more. India is really quite whiny and annoying. Storm and Thursday just could do with being a bit more feisty. As for Rome, well, in all honesty, I'm not entirely sure why one woman would be interested in him, let alone three.
It's hard to know what genre this book fits into, it's not quite humor, it's certainly not romance. A fun look at modern relationships and jealousy? I'm not really sure. If you are looking for a quick read that's a little different, then this might be just what you are after.
