About the Author

Tillie Cole hails from a small town in the North-East of England. She grew up on a farm with her English mother, Scottish father and older sister and a multitude of rescue animals. As soon as she could, Tillie left her rural roots for the bright lights of the big city. After graduating from Newcastle University, Tillie followed her Professional Rugby player husband around the world for a decade, becoming a teacher in between and thoroughly enjoyed teaching High School students Social Studies for seven years. Tillie has now settled in Calgary, Canada, where she is finally able to sit down, write (without the threat of her husband being transferred), throwing herself into fantasy worlds and the fabulous minds of her characters. Tillie writes both Romantic comedy and New Adult novels and happily shares her love of alpha-male leading men (mostly with muscles and tattoos) and strong female characters with her readers. When she is not writing, Tillie enjoys nothing more than strutting her sparkly stuff on a dance floor (preferably to Lady Gaga), watching films (preferably anything with Tom Hardy or Will Ferrell—for very different reasons!), listening to music or spending time with friends and family.

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 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!

Being an Auburn girl, I still decided to give this book a chance! :) I thought this was a pretty decent book except for the way the author portrayed the South. Being a Southern girl from Birmingham, Alabama, you got us all wrong! No one actually talks like that here and I can assure you guys do not walk around in sleeveless wife beaters all day! Some of the wordage used referring to plantations and old slave houses just sounded so dated as well. Also knowing our colleges in Alabama and how college football in the South goes, again, just did not work for me.

Aside from that, the story was pretty good. The story line was not the best and in some ways felt unbelievable to me. I really liked and enjoyed Molly but Rome grated on my nerves a bit. He had his good points and his bad points. All in all, an okay read.

This is another NA offering which follows a well tread path of the bookish heroine and popular jock Hero.

The story follows Molly, a British student studying at the University of Alabama and Romeo (yes really) the star football player. It is the usual quick meeting followed by insta love which seems to be prevelant in NA books but I generally liked the story and the characters.

Molly had a sad history, she comes from a poor background and lost her family at a young age. She is a fairly strong character, and I liked that while her history obviously affected her it didn't define her character the way these tragic backstory's so often do.

Romeo appears to have it all and checks all the usual boxes: gorgeous, possessive but was still quite sweet.

There isn't a massive amount to the story: the characters quickly get together (see aforementioned insta love) but face a bit of a backlash from both some of the student body but more significantly from Romeo's domineering family. The only real conflict in the book related to whether Romeo could stand up to his family and follow his dream and whether Molly due to her losses in early life was strong enough to stay with him.

I did enjoy the book on the whole but it was a little forgettable. I thought the author could have done more with the story and some of the drama felt a little false. I had an issue with Romeo's parents, who were significant to the story due to their cruel treatment and demands of Romeo. Unfortunately I felt they would have been more effective in the abstract as when they both finally featured prominently in the book I found them a bit panto villain-y. This could not have been shown better in a passage where they literally cackle with glee at Romeo's unhappiness.

Molly moves across the sea from England to Alabama to complete her masters degree, with no living family left she leaves behind a wealth of loss and loneliness. The Deep South is a big change, new culture, new friends, and then she stumbles onto the man that will change her life forever. Romeo Prince is the prince of Alabama their all star UA quarterback in his senior year with the NFL draft in his immediate future, he's not hurting for popularity, females, or parties, but a rough home life breeds a rage that is quick to explode and keeps him from getting to close to anyone, until he meets Molly.

I am not a writer, I am not a southerner, but any author who does their homework should be able to immerse me into any culture and make it believable, this author didn't do that. She can put together a decent sentence, but the storyline was weak, and the dialogue was stilted at times. The corny phrases and expressions she used to give her characters....well character was laughable. The flirting, build up and final connection between Molly and Romeo fell flat and she tried to turn it into a fifty shades scenario, but it was a sad failure. The steamy scenes were underwhelming and poorly done.

The villains were so over-the-top absurd (she even used evil cackles....seriously!) that I cracked up and rolled my eyes throughout and couldn't believe she would actually write something that cheesy. The biggest problem with this book for me was that I wasted my time and money on it. Don't waste yours!

TEASER

Bottom Line HOT love story with a twist of Jerry Springer kinda family action that will keep you sucked in. Really liked the whole bad boy all star quarterback in love with girl with tragic background. Only to find out his upbringing was even more screwed up than hers!! There were parts where I felt like stangling her but at the same time you felt could understand the stupid choices she kept making because of how she had been alone her whole life. Romes whole mommy/daddy interaction was wicked CRAZY!! Was waiting for the Jerry Springer bouncer to break it up!!Have to say I am now officially adding Rome to my Alpha hottie list.. Nice Read..

This was a really great book! I loved the H, Romeo! He was a total Alpha- domineering, possessive and completely adored the h, Molly. What I loved the most about him was that he was completely rough and gruff with the rest of the world, but with Molly, he was a softy (except in the bedroom, lol). She was his entire world and for me, he made the story. For the Beautiful Disaster fans out there, he kind of reminded me a lot of Travis- No, I didn't love him quite as much as Trav, but he is a close second.

I recommend trying this book if you are a fan of NA. It's a fast pace moving story that didn't really have any slow parts for me. It is steamy, has a good plot and good character development. Speaking of the plot, it is actually a lot deeper then most of the others in this genre; I felt many different emotions while reading this, it kind of surprised me in a good way. :)

This was the first book that I have read by this author. She may be new, have no idea- but I will be looking for other books by her. Again, she just writes a really good alpha H, steamy romance with a well developed story.
