More About 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 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.

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the 'Toon', Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle 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. Tillie, regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven 'proper mint' and 'lush' years.

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured 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, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and "just bloody do it!" For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately 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!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that enable her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing -- yep, there's more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!

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

Now I am always wary when I pick up an alternative perspective book. There are only a couple of authors that I personally think have done the characters and themselves justice. Tillie Cole joins them, because this book was fabulous; it added additional content, depth and emotion into Rome as a character and his journey with Molly.

Yes there are mirrored conversations - you will never get away and can't get away from that in an alternate POV, but it's Rome's inner thoughts and feelings during these moments which kept it fresh and un-repetitive. And there is a treat with new content heading towards the finish line. I felt for him the first time round, this time my heart ached for him; I felt his pain and I fell in love with him all over again. What can I exterior may be mid 30's but the interior is still in her 20's.

If you haven't read Sweet Home, I'd recommend reading first, if you have, I doubt you will be disappointed.

Ah Rome *sigh* I didn’t think I could love you any more after Sweet Home, but I was wrong.

I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about reading this book. I absolutely loved Sweet Home, and when I heard there was going to be another I was really excited. Then when I realized it was a retelling in Rome’s words, I wasn’t sure how Tillie Cole would pull it off. I had read it all before, what could Sweet Rome bring that was different? Well the answer to that is A LOT! Tillie Cole rose above and beyond my expectations.

When the story starts, there’s a flash back to Rome’s childhood, which is so heart-breaking. His sorry excuses for parents were absolutely horrible. I could have cried for the life he had growing up, and yet whatever they did to him, no matter how badly they beat him and belittled him they still couldn’t break him, and I loved that about him. He wasn’t a violent person, he wasn’t a horrible person. Yes, he liked the perks of being the QB but when he fell for Molly, he fell hard. Seeing the story through his eyes gave me a new insight into him. I loved reading how he felt when he first met Molly, and how it threw him the way he felt around her.

“Then she surprised me, gently taking my hand and sitting beside me. As I stared at her small fingers wrapped around mine, I realized this girl was turning into everything I needed but never dreamed of being able to get. On the surface, she was my exact opposite, but deep down, she was getting me like no one ever had before”

Underneath all the confidence and swagger, Rome is still that little boy, with a lot of love to give, waiting for someone to love him back. He has lots of offers, but he knows they’re all just wannabe trophy wives. He wants someone who ‘gets’ him, and Molly is ‘The One’.

Sweet Rome, happens within the same time frame as Sweet Home and follows Rome Prince's side of the story.

Rome appears to have it all, the rich parents, the friends, the ladies that practically throw themselves at him on a daily basis; but no one knows what secrets he's hiding and how much the NFL draft means to him.

He's never been a relationship type of guy, preferring to love 'em and leave 'em, until he meets Molly Shakespeare. He sees her and he's immediately intrigued. She's clumsy, has bad taste in footwear, but with her sexy British accent he finds her hard to resist.

Rome doesn't trust easily and he certainly doesn't trust the way he's feeling about Molly. They seem to share so much pain, this he can tell from his few conversations with her.

Rome and Molly's relationship has many hurdles that it must overcome before they can even think about a happily ever after. Do they believe in themselves enough to try?

Having read Sweet Home, which is Molly's story, I really wanted to read the story from Rome's point of view; and I have to say it's amazing.

I think you could read either of these books, Sweet Home or Sweet Rome, and be completely happy with the ending; however if you read them both, you have an absolutely, fully rounded, fantastic view point from both characters and the extended ending in Sweet Rome, along with the bonus chapter, is brilliant.

The chemistry between the characters is palpable and it practically jumps off of the page. Rome and Molly are perfect for each other, they challenge each other and it's like they're two halves of the same coin.

Their story is one of boy meets girl, who fall in love and live happily ever after, but this is not without it's twist and turns and ups and downs.

I LOVED Sweet Home the first time around, it was almost a 5 star read for me but I had to deduct a teeny tiny half star as I wanted more of Rome, I felt the story could have been enhanced all the more with a little of his POV. Never did I think we would then get a whole book from him and to be honest this was the story I was after in the beginning and I'm glad to say I loved it!

I am wary of books retelling the same story from the male POV, to date, I have only read one author that can do it well and now I get to add Tillie Cole to my list. From the very first page, it felt like a whole new story, it wasn't just mirrored scenes with the inverted feelings of Rome, it took on a life of its own and I loved every page.

For fans of Sweet Home (myself included) Sweet Rome captures what we missed out on the first time, living in Romeo's world; experiencing his pain, anguish and self loathing brought on by his parents. But at the same time we got to revel in his love for Molly and to witness the change in him and his rise in self belief. The book is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone if desired. We get the full story from Rome, so no prior knowledge is required. A first time reader could choose, if they wanted, to experience this tale of star-crossed lovers from Rome or Molly's point of view but to fall in love with each of them, I recommend you read both stories.

I'm not going to re-tell the plot in this review as I had previously done that with Sweet Home, what I will mention is the little surprises and extras I found in Sweet Rome.
