If you were a fan of Sweet Home and ever wondered what Rome was thinking throughout the novel, then Sweet Rome is perfect for you! I do enjoy getting the male POV in my romances, so Sweet Rome was a must listen for me. I love getting inside the hero’s head and experiencing how he falls in love with the heroine, and Tillie Cole gave me exactly that in this audiobook.
As you know from Sweet Home, the heroine, Molly Shakespeare moves from England to the University of Alabama to complete her Master’s. She’s incredibly smart, but her social skills aren’t exactly the best. She keeps to herself, until one day she can’t – Romeo Prince storms into her life and turns it upside down and for the better. The quarterback and heir to an oil fortune, Rome sweeps Molly off her feet in a whirlwind romance. He’s intense, sexy, alpha – and there is no one but Molly for him.
I really enjoyed getting to know Rome’s side of things, and I appreciated that his book wasn’t a full recap of what happened in Sweet Home. There are new scenes that we never saw in the first book, which made listening to Sweet Rome all the more enjoyable. David Radford is a new-to-me narrator, but he did a fantastic job with the Southern accents in this audiobook. I’ve listened to accents that sound cringeworthy, and thankfully his wasn’t. I would definitely listen to more of his narrations!
If you like opposites-attract romances, especially those where the popular quarterback falls for the quiet nerd, then you’ll probably enjoy Sweet Home and Sweet Rome. The two go hand-in-hand, and I’d say it’s worth it to get both stories for the different perspectives of the main characters if you enjoyed the first book. Right now, I’m excited to listen to the rest of the series in audio!
