Overview

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...

Mature New Adult novel—contains adult content, highly sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up*

Meet the Author

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 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.

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved thirty miles north to the 'Toon', Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. She regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven 'proper mint', 'lush' years.

Tillie, from a very young age has been part of the theatre community and loves nothing more than to entertain through the mediums of cheerleading, dance, drama and singing (sometimes in the rain). She can also be found in nightclubs around the world imitating her favourite artists alongside her crazy BFF’s - The Teesside Massive - or, sat on the front row at the theatre bopping along to her favourite musical, ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show ’, clad in a only a maids outfit, clutching a bag of rice and sporting a vibrant shade of red lipstick.

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, "D'you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book." Several months later, repeating the same tired line, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and 'just bloody do it!' Immediately she set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagination. Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glittery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed – they’re her weakness!).

After years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or in her dream of pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap, Stetson-wearing cowgirl... Ye-haw!

    Unexpected and wonderful

    This book was a lot better than I was expecting. The story of Romeo and Molly was just beautiful, and several parts of the story had me crying my eyes out. I definitely recommend this.

    I have to admit being a huge Auburn fan I wasn't sure how I woul

    I have to admit being a huge Auburn fan I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book. I decided to read it anyway and I am glad I did. This was a great book. Sometimes it was hard to get through the Roll Tides and them beating Auburn in a game but that just comes with being an Auburn fan lol.

    Molly comes from a troubled past where she has lost everyone she ever loved. She has a huge wall up and will not let anyone in. When a snobish girl is mean to her she meets Romeo who is there trying to help her. They both feel something but just don't know what. Romeo also comes from a troubled past and present. He is the star quarterback at the University of Alabama and ever girl on campus throws themselves at him. His dream is to go to the NFL but his parents dreams are completely different. Molly dreams of becoming a professor one day. This will take you on the crazy roller coaster ride between two star crossed lovers that were definately meant to be together but have a hard time accepting it. I just hope this isn't the end of Romeo and Molly. I do hope we get more soon.

    I waited till I read all three books out before I wrote my review for each. I wanted to see if the other books would be just as great as this one and they are. You will love them all.

    Tillie Cole’s “Sweet Home” is very well done. It has several of the same plot elements of Sylvain Reynard’s “Gabriel’s Inferno”: a public argument in a college classroom, a leading lady who’s very innocent and makes her man wait for it, family issues, and baby issues. I liked the way Cole handled these plot elements, and I liked this story and the characters more than Reynard’s. The foreplay and sex scenes are hot. I love a leading man, like Rome, who wants to be in control! My one small issue is that the chief heartbreak was resolved a little too quickly for my taste, but the pacing for the rest of the novel was great! I can’t wait to read “Sweet Rome” to hear the tale again from Rome’s perspective – I think that’s a neat idea. I can’t wait to see if Tillie Cole can really capture a man’s way of thinking!

    The best so far!

    I have read both books a couple of times and get entrapped in the intense story line and love the way the book flows. Molly and Rome were intense and the back stories were deep and kept the story going. A great read!!!

    Molly Shakespeare is a loner. Being the last of her family, surviving tragedy after tragedy in her young life she has become adept at one thing.... hiding behind knowledge. Descartes, Kant, and Shakespeare are her closest confidantes. Leaving England to start school at the University of Alabama as a research assistant is right up her alley allowing her to do what she loves without the complication of letting anyone in.
    Alabama is a culture shock for her. Being introduced to campus life and the Bama love of all things football. When she meets Romeo (aka Rome) Prince before her class and then again at a sorority initiation she doesn't know what to think of the handsome quarterback. Although there seems to be a connection between the two of them Rome seems too much of a playboy for her.




    Rome Prince likes to have control of everything around him. He has a short temper and figures if girls are going to throw themselves at him than why not take them up on it. From the moment he meets Molly he realizes that there is something about her that calls to him. The darkness that he holds in himself recognizes something in her that makes him want more than just a one night stand.




    I had a love hate relationship with Rome in this book from the beginning. He was so domineering and controlling at times that I kept waiting for the moment when he scared Molly away permanently. Because of his past and how he grew up he was so closed off most of the time. It was interesting watching the relationship between him and Molly develop. I really liked how even though he didn't understand what was going on between the two of them he kept coming back for more. And his growth throughout the book was beautiful.




    Molly was so shy and innocent from the beginning. Even though she didn't realize it half the time she was so strong for overcoming all the things that happened to her. I liked her little spurts of backbone that showed on and off.




    This has turned into one of my favorite books!

    Welcome Change

    This book actually had a great story and what I like best it is completed, no series. I am tired of authors trying to milk readers out of money with never ending incompleted series. Great romance and good story development. what I like best

    Bit juvenile

    For my tastes. Rome and Molly seemed much younger than early 20s, based on thought processes and actions. Also, Alabama's last game is ALWAYS against Auburn. In state rivalries (like the IRON BOWL) are always the last regular season game.
