I was looking for a super jealous/possessive hero and I definitely found one in Rome.
Sweet Home is filled with angst, drama, passion, chemistry that is off the charts hot. Both MC’s have had a hard past that can still haunt the present.
Molly is the nerdy genius that we all love to read about.
Rome is the star QB that is all alpha male.
Molly and Rome have this instant connection, their chemistry just pulls them towards each other, they are soul mates and exactly what the other needs, a loving family and home and they have that with each other. With outside forces doing everything they can to pull them apart and come between them it just strengthens their relationship, love and trust with each other.
I am ready to dive straight into book 2 Sweet Rome so I can see how their story unfolds from his POV.
References to the Romeo and Juliette tragedy are obvious...lots of angst, protagonists/antagonists, fueds, conflict, contrasts, twists, true love etc. (even the balcony features.)
Both Rome and Molly have personal challenges and carry huge burdens, but when they meet, each one feels something that leads to more...a meeting of soulmates. Rome is a controlling, dominant alpha who rules his territory with an iron fist, except when it comes to his sweet Molly (well mostly, anyway). His place in his own family, by contrast, is a tortuous situation that bridles him. Survivor Molly is quietly assertive, sweet, intelligent and intuitive. However, she's socially inexperienced which explains her sometimes clumsy actions (a few times she's unwittingly self-focused and emotionally thoughtless due to her inability to come to terms with her heartbreaking past.) She has a healing touch when it comes to Rome (her grandmother once said her sweet kisses could make anyone feel better), but she also has the power to make or break him.Tillie Cole allows insight via Molly's 'voice' and we get to see the story from Rome's perspective in the next book.
It's an entertaining romantic narrative with an HEA, so don't expect total realism. I like the wayTillie gives Rome and Molly their own authentic story despite following an age-old theme. For example, the love scenes are unique to them rather than being so predictable and repetitive that they could have been cut and pasted from any 101 generic contemporary romance (the scene at Rome's favourite spot on the outskirts of his family's cotton field was quite lovely.)
I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy this genre.
My heart... This book consumed me, as all books written by Tillie Cole do. It was just so beautiful...
Two absolutely broken people being driven by fate, star crossed lovers.
I want more Rome and Molly. I will never have enough of TV's amazing writing.

The ‘Sweet Home’ series isn’t as dark as the ‘Hades Hangmen’ series but it’s still going to put you through the emotional wringer. ‘Sweet Home’ is told from Molly’s perspective. Book two, ‘Sweet Rome’ is the same journey told from Romeo’s perspective. They are both amazingly good reads. I actually preferred ‘Sweet Rome’ but I can’t tell you if that’s because I got more out of the story seeing it from Romeo’s point of view, or if I was familiar with the story and just loved reading it from the other side of things.
Molly is new to Alabama and isn’t prepared for sororities, (American) football and dating. She’s had a somewhat tragic past and has pushed herself to academic excellence in order to make something of herself. Romeo, on the other hand, is all about football, females and fame. Well, maybe not that last one, as he actually dislikes the majority of the attention he gets. No-one knows who he really is or what he’s been through. His past is different from Molly’s but equally as tragic. When the two meet, there’s an obvious connection and they soon begin to gravitate towards one another. They can’t be more opposite to one another, and yet they understand one another like no-one they’ve ever met before. I loved watching their story unfold. It’s beautiful and tragic and will keep you reading from the first to last page. Enjoy!
(Review is the same for ‘Sweet Home’ and ‘Sweet Rome’).
I love that they come from two completely different world's and create a whole new one of their own. They abide by nobodies rules but their own, their love knows no limits or bounds, even when everything feels against them they come out stronger. I love the passion they have for each other, the way they make each other think and feel and the way Romeo changes without realising it to begin with.
The way Sweet Home is written it pulls you in effortlessly and makes you fall in love over and over again. You want them to come through all of their hardest battles stronger, to face everything in their way fearlessly and they do. It's not all plain sailing for them or hearts and rainbows but it makes them fight for what's theirs, even when it gets tough and Molly acts in her feelings and doesn't think she still finds her way back. Their friends are a huge factor in the couple's success and are a powerhouse that surrounds them constantly with love and a sense of family and my God will they make you laugh and laugh and laugh again. The connections are strong and powerful and lifelong bonds.
This book, it's story and the characters will steal your heart and you won't care, not one little bit.
Molly Juliet Shakespeare is an English geek who at the age of 20 is doing her masters. After an extremely difficult childhood Molly has learnt to cope by gaining as much knowledge as possible, and then when things get tough she runs. Romeo Prince, at first glance is your typical sexy, broody, bad boy. He is the star quarterback, headed for greatness. But behind his bad boy exterior Romeo is hiding the pain caused from a cruel and controlled life he is constantly fighting against, but is unable to escape.
Their romance is extremely cute, they first meet when they literally bump into each other and instantly sparks fly. Molly is shy and tongue tied, having retreated into herself when she lost her family. But Romeo decides that Molly is exactly what he needs in his life, so she doesn't really stand a chance. Once together they become exactly what the other needs: she becomes his lucky charm, he becomes her family and they connect in a way that is both beautiful and believable.
Their relationship is sweet, steamy and filled with love. But there are tough times, heart-breaking moments and devastating tragedy. The journey Tillie Cole takes Molly and Romeo on was not at all what I expected it to be, it was so much better. She threw stuff in there that I never would have imaged and it made for an addictive and very enjoyable read.
I really loved the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ Shakespearian references in this book, and Tillie Cole was able to include them without being super cheesy about it. The writing was fluid and engaging and Tillie Cole really shows her talent for writing swoon worthy romance and steamy sexual encounters.
Sweet home is a perfect mix of sweetness, pain and deep love. Page by page I fell more in the love the story, the characters and with Tillie Cole’s writing talent. This book gave me more than I expected and I absolutely adored it (was gutted when I finished and had to stop reading!)
It was a beautiful story with its little twists here and there and the inevitable set up for more books to follow!
This story is emotional.. heart breaking.. loving.. and just overall one hell of a heart thumping read!
Rome is star QB at college in Alabama... hes well know by everyone as Bullet on the field and everyone wants a piece of him... but who really knows him for him?
Molly has transferred from England to Alabama for work and College... shes had a dramatic childhood and doesnt let anyone in easily.
Sit back and read as their world collide and things start to change but will it be in a good or bad way??
Think this was a great start to the series and im already desp to jump into book 2!
