At age twenty, 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 grey 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 realises that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever…
Sweet Home is the story of Molly, an English girl continuing her education at the University of Alabama. She’s a bit of a book worm. She has also known her share of suffering. Saying that America is a bit of a culture shock is an understatement. She knows that the people you love leave, so she wants no part of that.
Romeo or Rome as he’s called is the college quarterback phenom. He’s rich, popular, good looking and you guessed it, a manwhore. Those are the things you see. What you don’t see is a man who doesn’t want the life that’s laid out for him. Others don’t see the pain he endures.
This is kind of a retelling of Romeo and Juliet but with a happy ending. All of those references are cute but the book didn’t blow me away. It was just okay. I’m a big fan of this author’s Hades Hangmen MC series but this one is just an average read.
