About the Author
KATE BROMLEY writes romantic comedies and contemporary romance. She lives in New York City with her husband, son, and her somewhat excessive collection of romance novels. (It's not hoarding if it's books, right?) She was a preschool teacher for several years and now focuses full-time on combining her two great passions--writing swoon-worthy love stories and making people laugh. She is also the author of Talk Bookish to Me and Here for the Drama.
"Breezy, fun, and packed with luscious descriptions of couture designs and Roman landmarks, Bromley's narrative is both a charming love story and a thoughtful exploration of a woman trying to let go of the past and discern what she truly wants for her future." - Shelf Awareness on Ciao For Now

"Bromley doesn't miss a beat with this international enemies-to-lovers contemporary... This will be just as much of a treat for armchair travelers as it is for hopeless romantics."
- Publisher's Weekly Starred Review for Ciao For Now

"Featuring two emotionally mature, career-minded protagonists and lush Roman locales, Bromley's breezy summer romance is perfect for fans of Elena Armas and Elissa Sussman." - Library Journal on Ciao For Now

"Kate Bromley has discovered the formula for joy. That's the only explanation for how much CIAO FOR NOW made me laugh, grin ear to ear, and--most importantly--swoon. The banter! The gorgeous Roman setting and deep dive into the fashion world! The enemies-to-lovers tension between Violet and Matt! (Did I mention the banter?) It's everything a reader could want. Bromley is a romantic comedy genius and this is her best book yet."

-Ashley Winstead, author of The Boyfriend Candidate on Ciao For Now

"Ciao for Now was an absolute delight to read from start to finish, but a quick warning: This book will make you hungry for pasta, a vacation in Rome, and a lot of steamy romance."

-Erin La Rosa, author of For Butter or Worse on Ciao For Now

"Full of smart, funny and utterly relatable characters - Matt is literally my leading man of dreams! A total page-turner of a book, transporting me straight to beautiful Italy and the glamorous world of fashion design. Sizzling with chemistry and with locations to die for (hello, Capri!) - a total five-star read!"

- Lorraine Brown, author of The Paris Connection and Sorry I Missed You on Ciao For Now

"From cover to cover this novel is a delight! I adored the atmospheric setting in Rome, the world of fashion design, and the lively banter and hilarious interactions amongst the main characters. The love story is swoony and highly entertaining. The pace is perfectly zippy. I smiled from the first page to the last. A thoroughly enjoyable story!"

-Rachel Linden, Author of The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie on Ciao For Now

"Smart, warm, and laugh-out-loud funny, CIAO FOR NOW is a must-read for anyone who could use a taste of la dolce vita. With pitch-perfect prose and razor-sharp wit, Kate Bromley delivers an Italian vacation within the pages of this charming novel. Be warned: CIAO FOR NOW is the book-equivalent of a bowl of fresh Italian pasta. Once you dive in, it's absolutely impossible to put down!"

-Kristy Woodson Harvey, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Summer of Songbirds on Ciao for Now

"Bromley's snappy dialogue and sassy banter never let up in this funny, charming, sexy and all-round fabulous rom-com. I can't think of a couple I have recently enjoyed as much as Winnie and Liam. Their interactions and dialogue are exquisite. Not to be too dramatic - I LOVED it. -Pernille Hughes, author of Ten Years

"HERE FOR THE DRAMA by Kate Bromley is equal parts heartfelt and hilarious. Taking us on a journey across the pond, Bromley has crafted a sharp, witty cast of characters you can't help but fall for. With a relatable heroine and a dreamy love interest, this romance is a true ode to finding your voice, following your dreams, and writing your own happy ending."--Amy Lea, author of Set On You

"Bromley's Here for the Drama is an absolute delight. Deftly wielding quick witted humor while plucking tender heartstrings, Bromley pens a romp through London that captivates. It's impossible not to root for Winnie, who strives to achieve her playwriting dreams when true love appears and complicates everything. Full of laughs and tears, this is a must read!" --Jenn McKinlay, NYT bestselling author of Wait for It

"Bromley follows Talk Bookish to Me with another delightful rom-com, a jaunt around London involving dates with strangers and an unconventional theater production sweetened by tail-wagging Ollie, who has a way of bringing folks together. Bromley's joyful romance is sure to please."--Booklist

"Bromley has written a wonderfully engaging novel with snappy narration from Winnie, and she deftly balances moments of humor with depth by providing her characters with deep backstories and complicated emotions... An entertaining, romantic story of a woman's personal and professional coming-of-age."--Kirkus
