Book Review - Roman's Having Sex Again by Nikki Ashton - Rome Week

Well it wouldn't be one of my feature week's without at least one book that is tenuously linked to the theme, so when I was offered the chance to review and take part in the release day blitz for Roman's Having Sex Again, I just couldn't resist. After all, Romans are from Rome....once you have finished groaning, please enjoy my review!

"My life is shite, and more boring than an iced finger – it’s basically bread for goodness sake; where’s the cream? To top it all off my boss, Roman ‘The Ego’ Hepburn, hates me."

Summer James has suffered a devastating change to her life, one that could shape her future and to make matters worse she now has a new boss. Not such a major problem, some would think, but that boss is Roman Hepburn. He's rude, grouchy and impatient and has a damn fine ass!

Very quickly her feelings for the dark, brooding, Roman change and it soon becomes evident that some highly charged sexual tension has been bubbling under the surface, and Roman makes it clear that he intends to make Summer his.

Will Roman succeed in getting the girl, and if he does will he succeed in keeping the girl? Or will circumstances and Roman's hilariously strange, but loveable family, send Summer tottering to the hills on her six inch heels?

This is a sexy, fun romance with some laugh out loud moments. Full of quirky characters, broody men and feisty women you won't be disappointed.

This book contains some sex scenes and bad language

Great mix of humour and a romance brimming with sexual tension, in addition to a storyline with far more serious undertones. 

As the first book I have read by this author, I really had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I enjoyed this book. The interactions between Roman and Summer were fabulous right from their first meeting. It was clear there was a spark of attraction between them, but then Roman turned into a nightmare boss, and Summer had to fight her growing feelings for him. 

The story is written in an easy to read style, and the author has come up with some fantastic characters. My favourite characters just for the humour involved with them are Roman's parents. The first time they meet Summer will definitely raise a laugh or two, and had me smiling, while also cringing in embarrassment for Roman. 

In fact Roman's mother is the one that comes out with the memorable line, in celebration, that has become the title of the book. To give you an idea her name is Twinkle, and she named her children after things to do with Audrey Hepburn, which when you discover certain facts becomes hilarious. 

There are some more serious topics in the story too, including Summer's health worries, and the secret that makes Roman the way he is. I won't go into any more detail, but it is always good to see a bit of depth in a romance novel, and this definitely gives it a slightly grittier edge. 

Overall though Roman's Having Sex Again is a relatively light hearted and easy to read romantic comedy, with plenty of sex, some great sibling dynamics, a bad guy, a few secrets and generally all around good feel to it. 

Thank you so much to Laura Barnard for this copy of the book which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily. 


Nikki lives in Cheshire with her husband, two dogs and lovely mother-in-law who supplies her with endless cups of tea. She writes romance with a touch of humour and lots of love, and hopes that she puts a smile on her reader's faces. Her ambitions of becoming a writer started at the age of 10 when she started writing poetry at school, and was given the honour of reading one of her poems to the rest of her year group (a truly embarrassing experience that she will never forget).
Nikki is grateful for the wide variety of strange and wonderful people in her life, 
otherwise she'd never know what to write about! She is currently talking to family and friends, finding out their innermost secrets in readiness for her next book.

Although all Nikki's books are stand alone stories characters do make 'guest
appearances'. So, the best order to read them is:

Guess Who I Pulled Last Night
No Bra Required
Get Your Kit Off
Rock Stars Don't Like Big Knickers
Rock Stars Don't Like Ugly Bras
Rock Stars Do Like Christmas
Cheese Tarts & Fluffy Socks
