Series: Sweet Home #2
Author: Tillie Cole
Release Date: 30th January, 2014
Rating: 5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

You met Romeo Prince in the Amazon & USA Today bestselling novel, Sweet Home. Now hear the story from his lips: unbarred, uncensored and raw to the bone.

It makes me laugh when I hear that folk think Mol and I rushed into it too fast, spouting that we couldn't possibly have felt what we did for each other in such a short space of time. I say, how the hell would they know? We made it, didn't we? She became my whole life, didn't she? And as for my folks not being real, being true? Tell that to me aged ten, eleven, twelve — damn, all my bastard life — when I was never enough, when I was beaten until I bled for being too good at football and not being everything they'd dreamed: the perfectly dutiful son. Tell that to thousands of kids around the world getting wailed on by asshole parents for whatever stupid reason; tell them that evil don't exist in their eyes.

Fuck Romeo and Juliet: this is the story of me and my girl, from my lips. No mushy sentiment, no cheese, just the plain, hard truth, and, because I'm feeling generous, I'm going to let you in on more of our story too.

Sweet Rome is a New Adult Companion Novel to Sweet Home — contains adult content, sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

In only few months that passed from the time I’ve read first book by Tillie Cole my love for her work changed into complete addiction. I have no idea how is it possible for the author to get me hooked so quickly and made me upgrade her from looking forward to to I absolutely have no idea how I would live without next book by her shelf in a matter of four months. Yes, Tillie Cole done the impossible. She mesmerized me with her fantastic storytelling, intense and realistic characters and fabulous romances and I can honestly confess she’s my go to girl if I need wonderful, heart swelling, butterfly in stomach’s reads.

Sweet Rome is another novel by Tillie Cole that simply begs to be devoured. I can't express how much I enjoyed this story, even though I already read it once in Molly point of view. Living this story through Rome’s eyes was magical. Every minute spent in his head was bittersweet and heartbreaking yet so satisfying. Once again I felt glued to the pages and just couldn’t let go till I reached the ending.

This lovely and romantic tale of college aged star-crossed lovers completely consumed me. And as every story has two sides after we learned what laid in Molly’s heart I couldn’t wait to finally dive into mysterious, sexy and intoxicating mind of Romeo Prince. I wasn’t disappointed, Tillie Cole done a great job.

Romeo Prince is the university star quarterback. Everyone knows him and his bullet arm as well as his charming character and looks that get all the ladies into his bed. There is not a single girl that wouldn’t want to spend the night under lickable body of Alabama’s star quarterback, there is also no single man that isn’t jealous of him. But Rome isn’t only a college sports star – he’s also a troubled character that gets his heart broken over and over again by his awful family. He feels lonely and broken.

There are no words that could describe how different person Rome seems to be. He’s nothing like other people think. And only Molly, a geeky British girl gets him and see something more than money and fame.

Tillie Cole not only told the same story in hero’s point of view. She’s done more. She phenomenally portrayed lonely young man and his wild journey of falling in love, of saying no to his parents and finally finding his own way.

Sweet Rome is perfect second half of Molly and Romeo’s story and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. It has everything I so greatly appreciated in the first instalment – swoon worthy moments, sexy times, great plot and fabulous characters. It also surprised me with some other things I haven’t had a time to appreciate while reading Sweet Home.

It was amazing to have a chance to pay attention to the other characters. I’ve not done it earlier and I completely missed out. Thanks to seeing this story through Rome’s eyes I saw how awesome and sexy Austin is. My heart broke for him too. What he had to live through was harsh… and on contrary it made him very interesting hero. I really can’t wait to meet him properly in Sweet Fall. My instinct is telling me it the next story will break me in half and glue me together.

Overall, I am proud to say Tillie Cole is one of my favorite New Adult authors. She’s very talented and I admire her. Her stories are sexy, entertaining, realistic and beautiful. I think I have a serious crush on her. I highly recommend Sweet Rome to every fan of new adult books. It’s gorgeous story and it absolutely deserves my gushing, squealing, fangirling and tears.

Picture Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother -- a farmer's daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses. 
Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.
