This should have been a dark stalker romance, Roman is CRAZY! He is so intense, possessive and obsessive, and I love it.

Roman’s past has come back to haunt him, and she is causing havoc on his mental and physical state. Roman was so affected by Theodora, he almost came off crazy to me. Was he perfect? No, but his personality was

One of my favorite things about finding an author I click with is watching how far they come as they progress their craft. That has been most assuredly been the case with this author. Every book that she has written has gotten better and better and the characters she creates become more than just fictional characters, and instead become my friends.

There is a complexity to both Roman and Theodora. Watching these two traverse hurt feelings of betrayal as they fought the chemistry between them had

What an intense and memorable ride this book was!

Theodora, in my eyes, was the hero in this book. She may have come off as shy and quiet just trying to blend into the crowd, but that girl has grit. She had a past she wanted to forget, but her past resumed to stay in the past.

Roman’s a total book boyfriend. I did have have mixed feelings about him at first but by the end, he also had my heart.

Their story had me at the edge of my seat because both mc’s are so complex. They went through so much a

Betrayal meet heartbreak in this angsty NA second chance romance. A little bit of bully, a dash(flood) of overbearing Alpha male, a pair who’s done some wrong, and the need for vengeance wrap this one up in a tidy little bow.
I wasn’t prepared for the Whodunnit portion, and was pleasantly surprised.
I am completely fascinated by the teammates, and can’t wait to find out about each of them.

Average bully story. Plenty of convoluted motivations and a few that didn't really get resolved and that weren't all that believable but likeable MC's. ...more

Roman and Theo.
These two absolutely captured my heart. They will stay with me for a long time.

Their connection was intoxicating and I found myself waiting for the green eyed monster to emerge. It was addicting, waiting to see how they would bait one another.

Through lies and deception they are torn apart.
Through lies and deception they are reunited.
When all the truths come out, who will be left standing?

5 MY ROMAN STARS!! PHENOMENAL....This book had it all from secrets, twists and turns to sexy times. Theodora and Roman will take you on one memorable ride that you will never forget. This author is always a 1-Click for me and should be for you too.

Time seemed to jump around. Not a lot of character development. They seemed to become different people from one page to the next. Some questionable situations but it was enjoyable. I didn’t skim too much of the book.

My main problem was with the setting. It was set in central Texas at the beginning of the school year and it is HOT as HELL here that time of year but these people were walking around like you couldn’t boil an egg on the sidewalk. Just a little thing but it bugged me.

I am in love with My Roman! The enemies-to-lovers college romance packs a punch and was highly entertaining. Also incredibly steamy!

Let talk about... Roman and Theodora. Wow! The chemistry between these two was on fire. With Theodora's stubborn feistiness and Roman's wicked charm, their love/hate relationship was explosive. I loved every interaction between them, and even I was seduced by Roman's devilish charm.

Roman. I didn't know whether to love him, hate him or punch him. He was charismatic

Oh My Roman!!! this book was perfection from page one to the very end. There was never a moment when I didn't love the story and I can honestly say I devoured this book in one sitting.

This story was pack with so much emotion, there is drama, suspense, twist and turns I wasn't expecting and some super hot scenes, what else do you need?

Roman was the perfect antihero, the bully and the tormentor you just can't resist to fall in love with because besides all the darkness and pain surrounding him, he

Oh my...Roman...WOW! A bully romance turned second chance romance with mysterious secrets, revenge, and a whole lot of steam.

I started out hating Roman and have to admit that I was conflicted for a very long time...should Theodora give him another chance? What was he up to? Should she trust him? Their history was all kinds of complicated, and Theo always ends up feeling like the poor girl living in a rich Kingdom where Roman rule

So freaking hot! This read is angsty and suspenseful and grips you like no other! A second chance, enemies to lovers, with a dash of bully romance, all combined to make a flawless and captivating story. I'm in love with these characters and I crave what comes next in this series.

Roman is all protective, alpha, demanding, and broody. I love all his rough edges and the way he takes control. He hates just as hard as he loves and its intoxicating. I'd gladly kneel at his feet and be his obedient gi

My Roman how you played my heart. You pulled, you pushed and you had me second guessing your every move. Theodora how your world spun but girl you held your head high. A love that was entwined with such intensity that it was hard to distinguish between love and hate. Their story took you on a journey between the past and the present, lies and truths and finally freedom. It was intense, emotional, drama filled and overflowing with chemistry.

My Roman by Rose Croft is a second chance romance. This is the first book in the Boys On The Hill series.

This is the first book of Rose's that I have read and it definitely won't be my last. I was hooked from the first chapter. The chemistry between Roman and Theodora was off the charts. I really enjoyed that we got Roman and Theodora's points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

Amazingly thrilling and twisted story!

I absolutely loved every freaking part of this amazing story! With so many secrets, suspense and twists and turns throughout, I was utterly captivated right from the very start! I did not want to put this book down and I hated when it was over. I definitely need more Roman and Theo. Their connection was intense and the sexual chemistry between them blew me away. SO FREAKING HOT!

I enjoy reading Roman and Theodora's love story because I love second chance, enemies to lovers, and sports romance which this book has them all. This is the first book of the author I read and I find it is well written and I also enjoy her writing style and the plot she created. Their love-hate relationship is entertaining even if I am a little bit confused by Theo's behavior at first because the author describes her as a shy one but her behavior with Roman is so feisty and sassy. The story is ...more

Jealous, Possessive Alpha-hole anyone?

Yes please, I'll take a Roman.

My first Rose Croft book and she's got talent. She knows how to write the perfect J/P dude that will make you hate and love him at the same time. I wanted to scoop Theo up and hug her for all that she has been through.

Roman and Theo get a second chance at love but will his bullying ways push her away or win her over and allow her to realize that he truly does love her and he is exactly what she needs? Hmmm?? I don't

I love discovering new authors, especially when they captivate me from the very beginning and leaving wanting more at the end. That's what My Roman did to me. I don't usually reach for this type of enemies to lovers story, but I went in without even reading the blurb.
I loved the story of Roman and Theo, it was a story that I didn't expect to really liked. But I loved everything from the sweet moments to the drama to the push and pull.

My first peak at the writing of Rose Croft and I have to say I was not disappointed, My Roman was everything you could ask for in a book.

Theodore and Roman play off each other so well, to see the flashbacks and see how deeply they care for each other is beautifully told.

I didn't want to put this book down and you won't either, it deals with some intense subjects and has some very cute moments but all in all a captivating read, I will definitely be reading more by this Author x

💕💕💕Amazing Read 💕💕💕

“ the end, it was always love because whatever happened you were always engraved in my soul, in my blood, and you were always meant to be mine.”~ Roman

An amazing read that sucks you in from the first word till the last. Roman and Theodora were always meant to be in the stars but the act of others kept them apart. Love all the twist and turns. Their ending is beautiful and heartfelt.

My Roman is a great start to a new series. It is more than just another sport romance. This story has heart and grit given to it by the main characters Roman and Theadora. On the outside you would think Roman has it all but he is breaking traditional values and will have you crying at many parts in the story. This is my first book by the author but definitely not the last.

*I received a ARC but the thoughts are my own

Theodora thought Hillside University was going to be a fresh start unfortunately she runs into the last person she wanted to Roman Martinez her first love. I absolutely loved this book and it’s twists and turns and the fierce attraction this pair have for each other. I can’t wait for book two Dear Nicholas.
