Publisher's Summary

In a last-ditch attempt to secure an investor for an app she’s developed, Rome Foster travels to her namesake city hoping her luck is going to change. Just as she’s about to pitch her life’s work, she meets the charming and captivating Nadine, a high-end escort who shocks Rome by flirting with her. Rome is straight, but Nadine sparks up a fire in her so strong that it seems impossible to extinguish.

Nadine Costa is pleased with the way her life is going. She lives in a fantastic apartment in the city she loves, and her lucrative job provides the funds she needs to support her expensive passion: perfume-making. When Rome crosses her path, she knows she’s never smelled anything quite so exquisite in her life.

Rome is a loner and doesn’t let people in, but when an incident occurs and Nadine steps in to save her, she realizes her feelings go deeper than just lust. Neither of them was looking for something more than physical, but when the stars are aligned, it’s hard to escape destiny!

Loved it

Another great romance by Lise Gold. It’s not just great romance but she makes you feel invested in the characters. There are multiple mini plot lines going on and she’s able to weave them together and blend with the overall story line. Would recommend this and anything else written by Ms. Gold.

Wonderful story

Audible version as good as the book, but better listening to it. The only thing is that Nadines character should have had a more sultry voice than the screechy voice she had in this book. The image portrayed by the description provided by the author would have called for a deeper sexier voice, other than that this book was fantastic.

Ok but a little tedious

I love Rome, and I loved the large part of this book, but about 6 hours into listening it started to annoy me, the story was not flowing naturally, beside for a book taking place in Rome I wanted more descriptions of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Feel good!

This was a great listen! Although the underlying subject matter is serious, the determination, honesty, and the banding together if women to effect change, was such a positive and hopefuls message! We are stronger together and can do anything we set our minds to! It was also so nice to have a story line that remained so positive with no drama between the main characters and a strong message of hope and love!

A wonderfully appealing, sexy listen!

This book has three main characters - Nadine Costa, a high end escort who works the job to finance her real passion as a perfumer, Rome Foster, an environmentally conscious app developer looking to get investors in her namesake city to make her dream a reality, and the city of Rome itself. And I absolutely loved all three! If traveling there wasn't already high on my bucket list, it would certainly go straight to the top after listening to this. (You deserve some tourism promotion compensation from them, Lise Gold!) What a breath of fresh air this book was! A well developed, fleshed out story that didn't cut corners, MCs that have strong, healthy communication and sizzling chemistry, people that step up and do the right thing, characters that don't self sabotage, great supporting characters and messages that have social significance. And soooo very romantic. All while making you feel like you're seeing the sights, (not just touristy ones, either), tasting the food and meeting the locals in one of the most amazing cities in the world. What more could you want? And in the very capable voice of narrator TJ Richards, this was a completely enchanting experience. I especially love what she did with Rome's voice. I heard Nadine's differently in my head. Not that TJ didn't do an excellent job, because she did. I just imagined her voice being a bit more sultry. So that I can entertain that fantasy - and because it's a great book with a gorgeous cover - I must have this in print as well. So often I find myself craving something exactly like this - a book that you can relax and immerse yourself in that just makes you feel good. And here it is! Definitely recommend.

This book is sooo good!!!! A MUST listen/read!!!

I loved this book! And now I want to visit Rome! But let’s get real for a minute... How could you possibly go wrong with a Lise Gold/TJ Richards (narrator) collaboration? They slayed it in Living and again with The Scent of Rome! The story line is like great pizza...Sweet and Savory! And someone sprinkled a little crushed pepper on top that brings the heat! Fresh out of the oven and sizzling! I am a huge fan of Lise Gold and TJ Richards and hope they do more together! Bravo!!!
