"You going to give up that lucky sweet kiss?"
"If that's what you want."
"It most definitely is."
"I was an undeserving motherf-er, completely worthless – I’d been told so all my life – but that only made what she said that much more special. To her, I was worthy."
I don’t think I’ve said it enough, so saying it one more time isn’t going to hurt:
I love you, Romeo Prince…so, so much.
I seriously have the silliest smile on my face. I know I must look ridiculous, but it’s ok. I’ll own my sappy spirit right now because I’m on a high. When I heard Tillie was going to rewrite Sweet Home in my beloved Romeo’s POV, I went ballistic. BALLISTIC! I LOVED that book, but to read it from Romeo’s POV? Heck. Yea. I dropped my current read and jumped right on in to this one. I had to have my dose of Romeo.
“It only took Romeo one look at Juliet and his fate was sealed. Maybe I’m just like my namesake, and maybe you’re just like yours.”
Romeo’s life was turned upside down when he ran into a flustered Molly just outside of the Philosophy lecture room. He didn’t know what to make of this girl, but as soon as they started to talk, he realized that this girl didn’t know who he was. Not to sound cocky, but he knew who he was, what he is to the University: He’s the star QB for the Crimson Tide – everyone knew who he was and everyone wanted a piece of him, except Molly.
“I like the way you are with me. I like me when I’m with you. I feel like I could tell you anything, that I could bear my f- black soul. You make me feel… well… you know… You get me?”
Molly was unlike any girl Rome has ever known. He can just be him around her with no pretenses or expectations. As they start to open about their pasts, Romeo begins to realize how much he’s changing because of her. The pressures of being who he is and what his overbearing parents expect of him, Rome has a tendency to blow his fuse; he seems to be constantly angry, but being with Molly just calms him. He no longer lashes out nor does he use sex for release. All he needs is her. With Molly by his side, anything is possible.
“I’m going to take you now. I’m going to show you what you mean to me, how much I want you, and show you that you’re mine. You get me, baby?
“I get you, Romeo,” she replied with that sweet damn smile that she reserved just for me.
My smile, my girl…my f- life.
This was freaking incredible. It was like reading one of my all-time favorite books all over again. Reliving all my favorite scenes through my Romeo’s eyes just makes me all gooey inside. I’m sincerely one happy girl. Thank you so much, Tills, for the opportunity to read this ARC. I love it. I love it. I love it.
