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

4.5 "My Sweet Romeo" Stars

“According to C.S. Lewis the greatest form of love is unconditional love. It is argued that this love is the strongest one can express toward another person and it survives no matter any life change or circumstance. It is pure and untainted and will never be shaken or taken.”


Sweet Rome by Tillie Cole is the follow up book to Sweet Home told from the different point of view of Romeo Prince and is also the second book

I DO NOT love the whole second-book-from-his-POV thing that seems to be all the craze these days...but I loved this book, plain and simple.


Tillie Cole did an awesome job with it, especially being that she was basically telling the same story again while still making it a little bit different.


But mostly?

I just fucking LOVE Rome.



Seriously, I want to live in his skin.

Welcome to 'Sweet Rome, a re-telling of a tale with more than enough heart and soul, I already knew I loved this couple, so this novel was confirmation that this is a story I don't ever want to forget. Tillie Cole has my heart wrapped around this story and I can say with confidence that Rome and Mol flat out deserved my huge four star love for this book.

There are times when I finish a book that I’ve loved with characters I’ve grown attached to and I sit and wonder… what happens next? I’m not ready for their story to end. Epilogues are great, but a lot of times we only get a few months or a year into the future. Never a clear picture of what their lives will be. Thats what I loved most about Sweet Rome. We got a nice look into Molly and Rome’s future. The last 20% of the book was amazing. Did I mention that Sweet Rome is entirel

Well, because I wrote this, I'm gonna say it's Amazeballs!!!!

Truth is, this novel was never planned. I wrote this after the fans of Sweet Home asked me to get inside Rome's head, and I thought, how fab! At times I loved writing his PoV. Other times, I wanted to tear my hair out! But in the end, I fell in love with Rome all over again and I ADORE the final result.

Rome and Molly will always hold a special place in my heart, and I hope you all love Romeo as much as me after seeing their story thro

In this second installment he have Romeo Prince and Molly Shakespeare journey told trough Romeo’s eyes.
There was some aspects, like the struggle with his parents and the whole “engagement” story that we are able to understand better, since we have more details now. It was also very good to be inside Romeo’s head and have a new point of view of their struggle against their ghosts and their pasts. They were definitely two broken souls how healed each other.

First of all I'm not going to review this one but more talk about my thoughts as this is Sweet Home in Rome's POV, also I will say this ~ I'm not usually one for reading the same story different POV in my case it's too many books and not enough time to read the same story but I took a chance on this one because for one I adored Sweet Home.

3 1/2-Made ME Smile-Stars

I can't justify giving this book, which is Rome's perspective of Sweet Home, a higher rating due to its redundancy to the first book. That said, I loved getting his point-of-view. This book ended with a heartwarming epilogue set in the future and, boy, did it put a huge smile on my face. I don't know what it is about this story or its characters that I love so much, but I do.

“It only took Romeo one look at Juliet and his fate was sealed. Maybe I’m just like my namesake, and maybe you’re just like yours.”


I read Sweet Home last week so I did skim the parts in this story that were the same as in the previous book. That being said, Romeo Prince’s pov was terrific!

I have never had issues with reading a book that is written in another character's POV. Many times they turn out to enhance my experience with the story. Sweet Rome was just what I needed to get the full effect of this incredible love story.

We knew that Rome suffered quite a bit from his upbringing, but not the exact level of abuse he endured at the hands of his truly disgusting and evil parents. It seems as though he never truly received any

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 P
Another favorite read for me, written by Tillie Cole. I am in a bit of a dilemma considering just a few days ago I was still in a "Raze Haze!"

She is going to cause me to cheat on Raze..I seriously can't decided whom I love more! LOL

This book is the retelling of Sweet Home from Rome’s POV, but also goes on to show us more – events immediately follows the first book, and glimpses into the future which were absolutely sensational.

I absolutely loved book 1 so how could I not love book 2...especially since it was Rome's voice guiding me! I know that this read was a duplication of the first book that for many is an issue, well, NOT for me! I read this for what it was...Sweet Home done in Rome's perspective. For me, this was truly amazing....

Sweet Rome is the story of book one told in Rome's POV. Even though most of the story is familiar to me, I enjoyed it so much more coming from Rome's POV. He is downright dreamy in this book! This book had more emotion to it, & made me love Rome even more! We get more details & information throughout the book, but the last 25% of the book for me is what made it golden. It was one of the best HEA's I've ever read! I loved every sappy ha

I started this earlier and forgot to save....lost the whole thing :(:( So here goes again.

I love Rome. I love Molly. This story has always felt SO real to me because I know SEC football and Roll Tide so well! I wasn't sure if a POV from Rome would be a retell or not. Let's face it: some authors are putting 2nd books out there with his POV and simply retelling the story. This is NO one of those books. Yes, we do see and hear some of the same story, but we also hear an
I absolutely LOVED this book. I liked the first one but I was glad to be able to have Rome's thoughts in this one. It just solidified exactly what I knew-he was unequivocally and whole-heartedly in love with Molly. It showed in every thought he had and everything he did.

Rome's story is very tragic. You catch a glimpse of it in Sweet Home. It really shows in this book. I, again, cried big, fat, ugly tears. I hate to see someone mistreated and abused. I said in Sweet Home, his "parents" needed to

Romeo and Molly were so cute together! They went through some tough shit and I felt for them the whole time. Pretty much the only time I was annoyed with these characters was when Molly fled to England after all that horrible things happened to them. I understand she was hurt but leaving Rome was not the right thing to do! But they made up and lived happily every after! So everything turned out great!
