all-the-way-reviewAnica Tomlin is a senior in college who decides to take a trip to Italy after finding out that the professor she was having a relationship with was married and had children. Her plans of sightseeing are cut short when she is injured, and although her broken ankle is not too serious she can’t walk on her own for a couple of weeks. One of the women that she met offered for her to stay at her parents home while she convalesces. And then Ani is caught in a love triangle between the handsome, flirty Doctor Cosimo, and Paolo, an Italian American, who initially was a little rude to her. Who will she choose?

I think that is the major plot point because there wasn’t much else going on. The story dragged along and I found myself skipping parts because I just wasn’t interested. Since Ani is convalescing most of the time, she is not really doing too much. Also, I think love triangles are really annoying. It seemed to me that the book was about how Ani found true love through Paolo, thus helping her to move past her previous bad relationship with a married man.

The setting is nice, being in Italy, but to be honest nothing drew me to the story. I did finish it just to see if there was any compelling plot line but none came up. I would give this a 2 out of 5 stars, mostly because I wasn’t really interested. When it comes to ratings, there are some kissing scenes, but that’s it, so I would say teens and above.
