Review! Sweet Rome By Tillie Cole

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 folks think Molly and I rushed into things 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 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.

Sweet Rome is Romeo’s version of his and Molly’s story in Sweet Home. Now I am always a little bit worried when we get an entire book that replays a previous one but just in the hero’s POV. I shouldn’t have worried because Sweet Rome blew Sweet Home away and that is because if you thought Molly’s story was sad and heart breaking, reading Rome’s will shred it.

We got a glimpse of Rome’s life through Molly’s eyes but when you read it through his, I can’t even begin to properly describe all the emotions that Sweet Rome will pull from your soul. You will cry, you will feel the pain that Rome felt, you will feel hopeless for not being able to take away all the hell that Rome was put through. You get to see how this tough, bad ass, alpha male falls head over heels for his Molly, and how terrified he is of losing the only real person in his life who sees the whole Rome, not just what others have seen. Sweet Rome reminds us that even the biggest football stars can have a pain so deep that it takes just one special woman to not only heal his pain but to be the one for him.

These are some of my favorite quotes from Sweet Rome. Romeo may have been a hard ass but he was also oh so sweet.

“My body recognizes you as something that's good for me. My mind recognizes you as someone who's right for me, and my soul recognizes you as someone who is meant for me.”

“We are better together than apart, and no matter what happens in our lives, I know that waking up and seeing you each morning will always be the best part of my day.”

“You’re not the only one who feels like splitting when times get rough, baby, but from now on, I won’t let you run anywhere if I’m not right there running beside you.”

Don’t be like me and wait to read this series, you will regret it as much as I am. Tillie Cole you have a new fan in this book whore and I will be telling everyone to read this series right away!
