Tom has always been steady and predictable—a formula he’s sure will lead him to success in his career. When his method fails him and he loses his job, he throws caution to the wind for the first time in his life and books a European holiday.
Maybe Tom shouldn’t be surprised that Cupid’s arrow finds him in one of the most romantic cities in the world: Venice, Italy. When he encounters Giovanni working in the family pizzeria, it’s lust at first sight. Their time together touring the city is so magical it feels like a dream. But Tom is shy while Giovanni is charming and flirtatious. Tom has a newfound freedom with his unemployment, while family burdens weigh heavily on Giovanni. Add culture differences and miscommunication into the mix, and their brief romance might fade as quickly as the beautiful dream it resembles.
Now they were alone again. Giovanni reached for Tom’s hand and held it as they continued to walk. Tom’s heart beat faster in anticipation. The grappa was making him feel giddy, or perhaps it was just because he was holding hands with a handsome man in the most romantic city in the world. Tom decided it was both. He stumbled on an uneven cobblestone, and Giovanni hauled him back up. They were in a particularly cramped calle
, the passageway barely wide enough for two people abreast to walk through.
“Whoa!” Giovanni exclaimed. “You okay? There’s no rush to go back….”
Tom stared at Giovanni and didn’t think. He lurched forward to capture Giovanni’s lips with his own and managed to catch the side of his mouth. Giovanni put his hands on Tom’s arms to steady them both, and then he kissed Tom, and his aim was true.
Luca Domani has been writing stories since childhood. Although he has a doctorate in engineering, he has never given up on his dream of being a writer. He adores science fiction and is partial to postapocalyptic epics with zombie hordes, but at heart, he is a hopeless romantic. Luca is married to his high school sweetheart, who is his muse and the love of his life. They reside in Massachusetts with their dog and cat. An American in Venice is his second publication outside of a technical journal.
Enter the Giveaway to win a copy of Luca’s release after it is published.
