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.

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.

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!

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.

I've been on a bad streak of books, but this was terrible! I could not finish it. I didn't care about the characters. They went from just meeting, to all possessive head-over-heels in lust/love. The girl was suppossed to be a genius, but she acted like an idiot. The guy was a emotionally stunted football star. He was one dimensional, but at least he stayed in character. I just didn't buy their attraction. He's posessive, overly protective, prone to rage etc. She comes off like a bewildered, green dummy. It felt like the author tried to write a relationship like in "Beautiful Disaster' but it just didn't work. Not even close. Eye rollingly bad.

I'm a hard hard sell when it comes to romance novel books. I either strongly like, love it or hate it. I'm pretty black and white about my romance novels and make no qualms about it. If I love it I'll tell you and if I hate it well I'm going to tell you.

But this book right here is without a doubt the BEST book I've read in the romance genre in YEARS. I've loved books, a few that are very popular but this book right here? THIS book, Sweet Home is the best. Bar none the BEST.

I'm still crying. This book tugs at the heartstrings like crazy. But the writing is on point. The characters are fleshed out and the pacing is unreal. I knew I was digging this book then I got to "the note" if you've read it then you know what I'm talking about and despite what the note is I knew this book was one of the diamonds. The diamonds in a sea of craptastic, wannabe 50 Shades of "Oh...my" stupidity and porn.

The sex scenes were even good. Just enough yet sexy. Very sexy. These two characters get each other. That's their thing they say to each other 'You get me'

I get them and I get this story. It's just that great.

Molly Shakespeare is an exchange student from England working on her Masters in Philosophy when she meets Romeo Prince, the starting quarter back for the Crimson Tide at the University of Alabama. Molly's a certified genius working on her masters already at 20 when she meets this anger management footballer who happens to get what she's saying through her philosophical ramblings.

The two are each others second half and both struggle with the age old wondering "why do bad things happen to good people" with both having dark pasts. Now dark pasts are a staple in romance novels but these two have heart wrenching back stories.
