Book Description

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.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rome - he came, we saw, he conquered 31 Jan. 2014
By Nicola_1202 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars You gonna give up that lucky sweet kiss? 4 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved reading Sweet Home so there was no question that I wouldn’t snap up Sweet Rome. Reading Rome’s pov on his struggle for acceptance, the suffering he endured at the hands of his parents, keeping his NFL dreams alive and how much he loved Molls further encased my love for his character and made me want to go back to re-reading the series from the start. Sweet Rome takes us to the past as Rome recounts to Ally when he first saw Molls, lighting the pages in humour and feeling his primal need to protect her. The story is bought to the present with a beautiful heart-warming epilogue. This really is one of the sweetest and romantic companions to Sweet Home even if it’s re-told in parts by Rome, it’s just that much more heart melting to feel how a smart English girl stole his heart, shared his sorrow and gave up those sweet lucky kisses that sealed their fate and future. “For never was a truer story of love conquering woe than this of Molly Juliet and her Romeo”.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't read the first story in ages and to be honest I was so upset when it ended but reading from romeos point i wanted to cry bless heart.
Being British I LOVED the fact Molly said "shagged" and ;bloody".
Rome was amazing so many times I wanted to hug him n tell him it will be ok.
I LOVED this book n it was worth the money.

Never write reviews but had to. Tillie Cole is beautiful writer with an amazing sense of humour. I loved Romeo and Mol, but after reading this book I loved them a little bit more. Fantastic book just like your other two worth the late nights with no sleep just to read another chapter or two <3 this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This series is a must read for everyone. 28 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sweet Rome is the 2nd book in the Sweet Home series and is basically Sweet Home in Rome's POV or so I thought at first, but how wrong was I and I'm sorry Tillie Cole for doubting you, I should have know better. About a 3rd of the way through I'd come to the conclusion that I loved this book more than the first one. Rome, OMG he is so MMMMMM, there are no words to describe him. I instantly fell in love with him all over again.
I have read a few books that go back and tell the story from the males POV and this was by far one of my favourites. Seeing things from Rome's POV puts a lot into prospective and, for me, the two books merged into one. I immediately fell into story and felt every emotion. Tillie Cole is an amazing author that tells her stories with so much elegance and emotion.
This series is a must read for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the first! 11 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tillie Cole didn't disappoint in her sequel to Sweet Home and I went through this book as fast as the first.
It may have been a bit boring to some as it is the same story as the first, just from Rome's POV.
However I didn't seem to mind at all that I was reading the same story as it felt like i was seeing it through different eyes and it kept me as captivated as the first.
Also it showed a lot more of their life at the end which made me love it even more as i was dying to know how their life turned out in the first novel.
So Tillie Cole has successfully managed to create a brand new and interesting novel with the exact same lovable characters and a need to finish it in one sitting.
