Undergrad Bridget is no stranger to romantic advances from men. But when she meets Owen, an instant friendship forms, even though Owen happens to be Bridget’s Italian teacher. Neither of them intends to cross that line, but once they do, they can’t deny the passion and chemistry between them. Aware that their tryst is taboo, they keep their relationship clandestine. But like all juicy secrets, this one doesn’t stay hidden for long. And once it’s out, Owen and Bridget must decide what they’re willing to risk in the name of love. For Love and Italian is a steamy new adult romance about two people whose dreams are hopelessly at odds with their passion for each other. Fans of Meg Cabot, Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Gabrielle Zevin will love this sassy twist on the classic trope of the forbidden romance with a strong yet misunderstood heroine and the man actually deserving of her love.
