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 know? We made it, didn't we? She became my whole life, didn't she? And as for my folks not being real, being true? Tell that to me aged 10, 11, 12 - damn, all my bastard life - when I was never enough, when I was beaten until I bled for being too good at football and not being everything they'd dreamed: the perfectly dutiful son. Tell that to thousands of kids around the world getting wailed on by asshole parents for whatever stupid reason; tell them evil doesn't exist in their eyes.
F--k Romeo and Juliet. This is the story of me and my girl, from my lips. No mushy sentiment, no cheese, just the plain, hard truth, and, because I'm feeling generous, I'm going to let you in on more of our story, too.
Sweet Rome is a new adult companion novel to Sweet Home. It contains adult content, sexual situations, and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

Not Much New Here
I really like this series but it seems that about 90% of this book could be a ditto of Sweet Home. I would have enjoyed it more if Sweet Home was dual POV and 2 hours longer. I did enjoy hearing it from Rom's POV but I felt like I listen to the same story told twice. One good thing about that is that David Radford does a much better Rome than Anna Parker-Naples.
If you listened to Sweet Home you can skip this one. But I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.

This audiobook was a delightful retelling of the first book in series Sweet Home, but from Romeo's point of view. I especially loved the last 3 chapters which showed the very happy ending. The narrator did a wonderful job with his southern drawl, sounding like he actually was from Alabama. Loved it!

I absolutely loved reading Sweet Rome on my kindle, so I thought its been a while I'll listen to it on Audible. What a mistake! No thought has gone into researching the accent for Molly. She is an educated girl from Durham, not a lady that has been brought up in Buckingham Palace or has a nanny called Mary Poppins. The accent that was used for Rome was spot on, but it pained me to listen to the story with the terrible female accents. Really disappointed and its such a shame as the story is fan-flippin-tastic.

Fabulous story (as are all Tillie Cole's books), performed really well by the narrator. I've listened about 3 times since purchasing and I' m pretty sure it's one I'll go back to again in the future.
