After leaving Rome with a broken heart, Step Mancini returns from America two long years later. He’s told himself that he’s put his first love behind him, but now that he’s home, he can no longer deny his need to see Babi Gervasi again. So he’s completely blindsided when he finds himself trading flirtatious barbs with fledgling actress Ginevra Biro. Bold, streetwise, and funny, Gin is everything that Babi is not. She offers Step a new beginning, a second chance at the love of a lifetime.
But even his romance with Gin can’t completely erase the past. Trouble still follows his friends, and he and his mother remain estranged. For now he can outrun his problems as he and Gin discover Rome together, from Capitoline Hill to the Ponte Milvio bridge, where the pair attach a padlock to the lamppost and throw the key into the Tiber River, ensuring that their love will last forever.
But forever is a very long time. And their love is about to be tested.
