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 say...my 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.
But, starting it immediately after reading Sweet Home probably wasn’t the best of ideas as it felt a bit… Same-old in some places.
Now, there are lots of scenes, and lots of info especially about secondary characters, in this book that are not included in Sweet Home so don’t think you are just getting a bad copy and paste job with “she felt” switched to “he felt” or whatever.
You’re not. Rome has his own life and his own story to tell.
It’s just that it didn’t diverge enough, or contain enough ‘unknown’ to surprise me, so the burning need to keep turning the pages, that ‘must read now!!!’ feeling wasn’t there. It didn’t stop me from inhaling page after page, but I didn’t feel that I couldn’t part with it to eat my dinner, for example.
However, it was Molly. It was Rome! It was a wonderful read and the added bits at the end – especially the epilogue – were the business! This author is a master of the epilogue… Major feels!
If you loved Sweet Home, you have to read Sweet Rome. Have to. Just… Wait a few days at least to let Sweet Home digest a bit.
If you haven’t read Sweet Home, you should, but you don’t have to to read Sweet Rome as it can stand alone.
A must read!
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’.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
