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.
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!
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
