Raise Your Aperol Spritz To These Sexy Italian-set Romances


Raise Your Aperol Spritz To These Sexy Italian-set Romances

The White Lotus season 2 premiered on Binge just a few weeks ago and I am officially obsessed. This time the black comedy series takes us to a lavish hotel in Sicily, on the Mediterranean sea. The show has the same lush landscapes, awful entitled guests, darkly comic mayhem and elaborate costumes as season one, but something about the Italian setting has me hankering for a summer evening sat on a terrace drinking an Aperol Spritz overlooking a sparkling turquoise ocean…

If you’re hankering for an Italian romance we have the perfect books for you!

So grab a glass of Aperol, find a sunny seat, throw on a glitzy floral wrap and get reading.
