At age twenty, Molly Shakespeare knows a lot.
She knows Descartes and Kant.
She knows academia and Oxford.
She knows that the people who love you leave you.
She knows how to be alone.
But when Molly leaves England’s grey skies behind to start a new life at the University of Alabama, she finds that she has a lot to learn — she didn’t know a summer could be so hot, she didn’t know students could be so intimidating, and she certainly didn’t know just how much the folks of Alabama love their football.
When a chance encounter with notorious star quarterback, Romeo Prince, leaves her unable to think of anything but his chocolate-brown eyes, dirty-blond hair and perfect physique, Molly soon realises that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever…
I cannot tell you how much I loved this book, I was pulled into the story to the extent that I felt as though I had been on the same life journey as Molly and Romeo!
I also loved the association with the uk, and I usually don’t even though I live there! Most authors miss the mark for me when trying to incorporate things about England into a book, but for me Sweet Home felt authentic, Tille hit the nail on the head.
The emotions your body will go through while reading Sweet home is amazing, you will cover them all from deep sadness, pure emotion, trauma and absolute elation. You smile and then the next thing you know your crying.
The main characters Molly and Romeo are just wonderful to read about and there story is truly believable, and the story quickly draws you into the close friendships of the characters.
I absolutely loved Molly’s friends and Cas was a hoot! Her and Jimmie-Don should get a book.
Romeo was so sweet but also very sexy alpha, he had it all and I cannot wait to start reading Sweet Rome to get the story from Romeo’s POV. My heart physically hurt for Romeo at any interaction with his parents, how can people be so vile!, so to get his side of the story is going to be emotional I think.
I really thought the combo of gorgeous football hero with anger issues, and a feisty geek chic heroine, with NHS glasses worked so well, Tillie Cole really pulled off this wonderful story that is a must read.
I’m a real sucker for Romeo and Juliet so all the references and quotes through out this story had me loving it even more!
This whole book had me smiling and sighing with joy at the end, I’m totally gushing about this book I know,but it just that good!
Tille Cole is now on my read anything for this author list!
