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 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.

the storyline was nice but a little heavy on the insta-love for my liking. My main issue was the appallingly bad accents which made falling for the male protagonist a real challenge
Would you listen to Sweet Home again? Why?
The narrator did an amazing job bringing this brilliant book to life, she was engaging and complimented this phenomenal book written by Tillie Cole
What about Anna Parker-Naples’s performance did you like?
She was a brilliant narrator who brought the story to life. She changed her voice and accents brilliantly depending on which character she was portraying at the time
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
the whole book did with the emotion that was written into the story along with a brilliant narratoe
where to start...
I did listen all the way through.
Being Australian I'm used to Listening to American accents. This narrator I would guess is English, so naturally the main English character voice is good. As soon as she puts on ANY other character voice (all bar one are American) it is AWEFUL! It's insanely bad southern American accents. She was clearly focused on keeping up the accent with little concern to what was going on in the story so the emotion was missing most of the time.
Now, the story. Really random mix of orphans with abusive parents with misunderstood sports star with insta love with bitchy girl with alpha male with attempt at a bit of Dom/sub (terrible and unnecessary to the story) with ...
Sheesh! Pick a story. And stop trying to add all the other books out there into one.
