5 Stars (Re-read 10/21/2016)
Overall Opinion: I still loved this one! It'll definitely stay on my favorites shelf, and I have no desire to change my rating from 5 stars! I would highly recommend reading Sweet Home first. I read them in order, and I don't think that this packed as a big of a punch as that one did the first time I read it. Don't get me wrong -- this one tapped into my emotions for sure (as Ms. Cole always seems to do), but I think that Molly's POV is too valuable to miss! This is a retelling of that story from Rome's POV, and I know that some readers get irritated by the repetition, but I thought that it is awesome to get Rome's POV and more back story into his family life. And the ending and epilogue?!? Too good to pass up!! Even if you have no desire to read the full story (after reading Sweet Home), I think the ending and epilogue alone are worth the read for the closure. One of my top favorite endings in a book to date!
**See Goodreads.com/NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**
Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Molly and Rome's story. They meet one day before class, and Rome is instantly intrigued with the nerdy British girl that doesn't have a clue who he is. He is the star quarterback for the university, so this is definitely not something that he is used to. Molly ends up being his TA, and they bump into each other through other events around campus as well. They forge an instant connection through shared loneliness and painful pasts, and fall in love. They have some major drama with family and ex-flings, have some hot sexy times, as well as some sweet and sad moments...and they get a HEA ending.
POV: This was told in Rome's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. I never skimmed and it flowed well.
Instalove: No, I felt like the had good development into stronger feelings. They did have an instant connection though.
H rating: 5 stars. Rome. Poor Rome. I felt so bad for all of the horrible things he had to deal with. Yes, he was a manwhore with anger issues before Molly -- but I loved him!
h rating: 4 stars. Molly. I liked her nerdy, sweet ways. The only issue I have is her pushing Rome away when he needed her.
Sadness level: Low/moderate. I remember crying like a baby in the first book, but because I knew what to expect in this one I didn't cry. I did choke up a few times when we were getting their HEA (in the good way ;D)
Push/Pull: Not really
Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry and scenes, but not so much that it takes away from the storyline.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Yes
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Closure: This had great closure. This has to be one of my absolute favorite endings to a book!! We get a lot of closure and a good sense of security in their relationship with a long jump ahead epilogue. HEA for sure!
How I got it: I paid $2.99 on Amazon for it back in 2014.

Sweet Rome is Romeo’s version of his and Molly’s story in Sweet Home. Now I am always a little bit worried when we get an entire book that replays a previous one but just in the hero’s POV. I shouldn’t have worried because Sweet Rome blew Sweet Home away and that is because if you thought Molly’s story was sad and heart breaking, reading Rome’s will shred it.
We got a glimpse of Rome’s life through Molly’s eyes but when you read it through his, I can’t even begin to properly describe all the emotions that Sweet Rome will pull from your soul. You will cry, you will feel the pain that Rome felt, you will feel hopeless for not being able to take away all the #$%! that Rome was put through. You get to see how this tough, bad @$$, alpha male falls head over heels for his Molly, and how terrified he is of losing the only real person in his life who sees the whole Rome, not just what others have seen. Sweet Rome reminds us that even the biggest football stars can have a pain so deep that it takes just one special woman to not only heal his pain but to be the one for him.
These are some of my favorite quotes from Sweet Rome. Romeo may have been a hard @$$ but he was also oh so sweet.
“My body recognizes you as something that's good for me. My mind recognizes you as someone who's right for me, and my soul recognizes you as someone who is meant for me.”
“We are better together than apart, and no matter what happens in our lives, I know that waking up and seeing you each morning will always be the best part of my day.”
“You’re not the only one who feels like splitting when times get rough, baby, but from now on, I won’t let you run anywhere if I’m not right there running beside you.”
Don’t be like me and wait to read this series, you will regret it as much as I am. Tillie Cole you have a new fan in this book whore and I will be telling everyone to read this series right away!
