Oh Romeo, Romeo…

So are you to my thoughts as food to life, or as sweet seasoned showers to the ground ~ William Shakespeare

Tillie Cole is an amazing writer. She is the reason why I am so blissfully happy right now. This is one of those books where if it weren’t for sleep, I could’ve easily read in one setting. God, I love those moments where you’re completely immersed in the story and you find yourself crying, laughing and just outright swooning. The only thing that saddens me right now is that it’s over. I’m just itching to just re-read the whole thing all over again; which who knows…I just might.

I loved everything about this story; to me, it was a modern day fairy tale -- the sexy, unattainable, brooding, Alpha star quarterback falling for the sweet and lovable geeky girl, who just happens to be British (the Anglophile in me is screaming in delight). Seriously. I will never tire of stories like this, especially when they’ve been written as good as this. Plus, to top it all off, the H/h are named Romeo Prince and Molly Juliet Shakespeare. LOVED. IT!

“Why am I more? I don’t get it.”
“You just are. You somehow give me peace in my completely fucked-up world. You get me; no one has before. It’s that simple.”


Growing up wasn’t easy for Molly. She never knew her mother; her father committed suicide and then lost her Grandmother a few years after. Raised in foster care didn’t stop her from accomplishing so much. Only at twenty years old, she moved from England to Alabama to earn her masters. She’s always immersed herself in school and studying to forget the pains in her past. Molly has always been a little shy, never one to vie for any attention. However, when she accidently meets Romeo, her life will never be the same.

“You’re not gonna be just a fuck to me, Mol – you’re gonna be my fuckin’ salvation!”

Ah, Romeo. The name says it all. He’s the University of Alabama’s star quarterback. Everyone wants a piece of him, except for his parents. Though he’s never physically alone, he’s never felt so empty. There’s just so much pressure from his parents to marry well and to continue on the family empire. What he wants never really mattered. Why are his parents so unbelievably cruel to him?

When he met Molly, he didn’t know what to think. She’s different from all the other girls. First off, she didn’t even know who he was. That right there is a huge plus. Second, she’s not your typical cheerleader or wanna be groupie. She was pretty in a cute and quirky way, yes, but she was also real and interesting. He was drawn to her and he wanted to find out why.

Home is with the person who throughout it all never gives up on you and brings you eternal happiness.

The connection these two had was so flipping sweet. Romeo was so protective of Molly. He’s never had a girlfriend before, but once she became his, he was in the relationship one hundred percent. There were so many swoon-worthy moments, but one of my favorite moments were the kisses. OMG, the KISSES before the home games just made me melt. Plus the little parallels to William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet were so cute: The climbing of the trellis, the star-crossed lovers theme, and just the overall strong love between the two really made this story unique in its own right. LOVED. THIS. BOOK!!!

For never was a truer story of love conquering woe than this of Molly Juliet and her Romeo.

Tillie Cole
“Not at all, Shakespeare, but hear this. I’m gonna fuck you, but I’m also gonna make love to you. I’m gonna own every goddamn piece of your soul, and I’m never gonna let you go. You’re gonna scream my name over and over until it’s permanently lodged in your friggin’ throat. You’re not gonna be just a fuck to me, Mol—you’re gonna be my fuckin’ salvation!”
Tillie Cole, Sweet Home

“Hey Mol.
Hey You.
You gonna give up that lucky sweet kiss?
If that's what you want.
It most definitely is.”
Tillie Cole, Sweet Home

“A home is not a place. It’s not a country or a town or a building or possession. Home is with the other half of your soul, the person who shares in your grief and helps you carry the burden of loss. Home is with the person who throughout it all never gives up on you and brings you eternal happiness.”
Tillie Cole, Sweet Home
