Book Review: Molly Moncrieff- An English actress/model survives a rape attempt in Milan only to further lose all her belongings alongwith her luggage upon reaching Rome. A guy she just met in the city comes to her rescue and offers her a place to live. There she builds up a good company with the guy named Max who takes good care of her. Sooner she realises that Max was different from all the men she met before. He was a true gentleman with in-depth knowledge of various cultural and historical topics. They spend quality time together walking around Rome with Max explaining the details and intricacies of the sculptures, the domes and the piazzas symbolising the great Italian architecture. Their union was one of a kind of that of the Hermes and Aphrodite with him as the God of travel and her as the Goddess of sexuality. As the days passed they found themselves engulfed in their passion for each other and experiencing the mystic sexuality of Greek gods. What better way to experience the romanticism of Rome!

Author Rebecca is marvellous with her detailing of Italian architecture and Renaissance subjects and her ability to carve a beautiful story as a travelogue which not many authors are successful at. She also has perfectioned the writing style of switching between narratives which again is her uniqueness. The only thing that might bother some readers is the length of the book but that will not be deterrent if you love travelogues with a good dose of Greek gods-inspired erotica. Highly recommended for travelling couples-in-love. This might be an answer to the missing spark in your life!
