Publisher's Summary

At age 20, Molly Shakespeare knows a lot. She knows Descartes and Kant. She knows academia and Oxford. She knows that the people who love you leave you. She knows how to be alone.

But when Molly leaves England's gray skies behind to start a new life at the University of Alabama, she finds that she has a lot to learn - she didn't know a summer could be so hot, she didn't know students could be so intimidating, and she certainly didn't know just how much the folks of Alabama love their football.

When a chance encounter with notorious star quarterback Romeo Prince leaves her unable to think of anything but his chocolate-brown eyes, dirty-blond hair, and perfect physique, Molly soon realizes that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever....

What the Critics Say

"Anna Parker-Naples's portrayal of Molly Juliet Shakespeare captures the dramatic highs and lows in this modern-day spin on a Shakespeare classic. Molly is a teaching assistant working on her master's degree at the University of Alabama, where she becomes the object of desire of star quarterback Romeo Prince. Parker-Naples's English accent and lilting voice bring out Molly's uniqueness as well as her innocence and moments of sadness when she's reminded of her lonely past. This sweetness is transformed into a rough sexiness during Molly's erotic interludes with Romeo...she differentiates voices well and knows how to pace her reading to project the hostility encountered by the young lovers." (AudioFile Magazine)

    "Narrator a miss on this one"

    The narrator's British accent sounded fine to these American ears, but oh my the southern accents were unbelievably awful. I don't understand how a book can be released with such mediocre narration. The story was ok, but overly formula sex scenes (with a touch of Shades of Gray); silly and didn't fit. The one at the very end of the book ... the one where the reader would think the story has already ended ... was over the top not needed.

    Actually I tried to return this book and wasn't able to. Sorry to have a negative review as there is talent in both the writer and narrator, but it just didn't come together for me in this story.

    I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...

    "Just Like Romeo and Juliet ... Well Sorta"

    I love this story and Tillie Cole is quickly climbing the list as one of my favorite authors. Rome and Molly are such interesting and compelling characters and they are surrounded by loyal and interesting friends. This has the makings of a must listen to series with a very strong beginning. Molly and Rome have such different lives yet somehow they seem to be a perfect fit. This is an enticing story of young love overcoming many obstacles and I was cheering for them all the way.

    Anna does a really good job as narrator for Molly and a marginal job as narrator for the southern females but absolutely awful as narrator for the southern males, especially Rome. Fortunately, this was such a good story I could overlook this part of the narration,

    Definitely worth the credit. I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.

    "Loved this!!"

    This audiobook was just so well done that I loved it. The emotion that this story brought forth was just tear jerking and you wanted both the hero and heroine to find their peace in each other despite the obstacles in their path. Loved the ending and the narration was very good.

    "Performance"

    The story was okay. It was a little predictable. The narrator was just awful when it came to the southern accents. If that is what you can say she was trying to do. The English accent was ok.

    "Did nothing for the story"
    If you could sum up Sweet Home in three words, what would they be?

    Epic Sad union


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anna Parker-Naples’s performances?

    No her voice for the bullet was awful so if she did it that way again then no. Her English accent was great though


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    both laughed and cried


    Any additional comments?

    I loved these books and rome and his English girl were great but this audio was a bit annoying

    "Sweet College Romance"

    Such a sweet romance with the fun of word play in the main characters names. Just like the real Romeo and Juliet, they click right away. Unlike Shakespeare characters, these do get an HEA. There are enough twists in the story though to keep it interesting.

    Narrator does good job with English accent but not so good with the southern ones. Might even been better with dual narration.

    5 Crazy Ass Must Read Stars!!!!!

    I finally dove into this series after having read most of Tillie's other books. She floors me with her writing and the versatility of it.
    I love this series and I'm hooked. I will be unavailble for the foreseeable future as I delve more into the Sweet Home World.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you listen to Sweet Home again? Why?

    Absolutely. The narrator not only changed her voice to suit the characters and put on the accents and whatnot she really got the emotion of the story and it choked me up and caused my eyes to tear up in the most devastating areas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Home?

    There are so many its hard to choose just one. Off the top of my head, near the end when you first see Rome's tattoo.


    Which character – as performed by Anna Parker-Naples – was your favourite?

    Hard to choose, each character was performed wonderfully and their personalities really came through.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Absolutely I had an emotional reaction and more than one, it made me laugh, made me cry, made me feel a whole range of emotions from anger on the characters behalf to melting at heartfelt words.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing book, amazing series and the narration added something new to it. Definitely worth the stars.
