I know I will reread it again. And be quick, baby. I really, really loved it!!! The kind of girl who grabs her crotch and licks her lips suggestively at Molly. Doors are left unlocked at night, and neighbors are always there to give each other a helping hand. Too timid to talk to girls, Levi stays as far away as possible and completely on his own… until he saves the life of a troubled pretty blonde, a troubled pretty blonde that might just be the exception to his rule.
Or at the least, a warning and a referral to the student conduct council. Most schools - and I have to believe 'Bama would be the same - have a code of conduct for students and the mean girl stepped over it. No sorority rush works this way. The pinning takes place first?!?! And the final party is not some sort of a preference night, but a toga party?!??!!
Because Animal House is SO At 'Bama. At the start of the fall semester Let's look at this set up again. Even though football season should already be in progress by this date, and the cheerleaders would have been selected long before. Also, we're talking 'BAMA. Where football is a religion, and cheerleaders aren't far behind. I'm going to let the horror of this sink in. As if this wouldn't get the sorority kicked off campus before one could utter "Roll Tide. Is more than just a kiss and keg and like a keg would be involved in the first place!
Because from what I've heard, Tilly's depiction is more rage inducing than her sorority mishegas. Look, I get it, this is supposed to be some big swoony if paint by numbers New Adult romance. Although the characters are more caricatures than three-dimensional humans.
The prologue flashback to Molly's childhood is saccharine and on-the-nose, and was wholly unnecessary. Everyone says "darlin'" and "ain't" all the time and drop the "g''s off the end of their sentences so the reader knows we are in the SOUTH, doncha know.
I'm surprised Scarlett and Rhett don't show up just to rub that in more. Like that the book is written by a Brit whose closest association with the US, apparently, is that she watched an episode of Friends and the aforementioned Animal House.
And I suppose this is revenge for authors such as Raine Miller getting everything about life in London wrong. But here's the thing. I can't turn off my self-literacy respect. I just can't. Maybe others can, but I can't disregard the fact that I love to read and I love authors who care deeply about their stories and who work hard to craft them to the best of their ability.
And when I read something like this, something so obviously slap-dashed together to cater to a hot market without any care for the reader's reading comprehension ability and need to suspend disbelief - - I see red. I lived in the UK. If I wanted to be around Brits who get everything about life in the US wrong but think they know everything because they watched an hour or two of telly, I would have stayed there.

A sweet and fun tale of a modern day Romeo and his Molly Juliet. Molly Juliet Shakespeare is a twenty year old student from England. Molly is fantastically nerdy and lovable. She captured my heart from the first time she shouted Fuck wearing orange crocks. He does hookups. He plays football and works hard at school to try to please his difficult parents.
When he meets Molly, he is taken by her. There is something about this girl with the crazy hair, glasses, and english accent that makes him want her. It all starts with a good luck kiss…. Once Rome has had a taste of Molly, he wants more. Molly has experienced so much loss in her life, she finds it difficult to get close to anyone.
But Rome breaks through her walls. What Rome loves best about Molly is that he can be himself with her. I like the way you are with me. You make me feel… well… you know…. They bring out the best in each other. It was more than just an attraction between them.
It went deeper than that. Rome and Molly had a connection. They understood each other, respected each other and just got one another. I loved all the Romeo and Juliet comparisons and how the story was thrown together. Romeo and Molly were such endearing characters. I adored everything about this fabulous couple. Home is with the other half of your soul, the person who shares in your grief and helps you carry the burden of loss.
Home is with the person who throughout it all never gives up on you and brings you eternal happiness. View all 78 comments. Jan 22, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: Sweet Home is the type of New Adult romance that would normally drive me nuts but ended up capturing my heart instead. I had so much fun reading this book. I loved the love story, the light and youthful feel, the angst that didn't feel too angsty, the playful humor, the heartbreaking moments, the possessive hero with a vulnerable side, and the sweetest, quirkiest, heroine I've read to date.
I adored Molly. She's a New Adult heroine that's unique, a-dork-able, and a breath of fresh air. I read to escape and this book gave me just that I can't ask for more than that. View all 62 comments. Oct 17, Patrycja rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Patrycja by: My way is better—less death, more orgasms. I wish this book never ended.
It was so, so good! This story is so unique and refreshing. Roller coaster ride full of twist and turns, Sweet Home is intense , full of action passionate read that can be finished in one sitting. You will read it while biting your nails, laughing hard, wiping tears and fighting with lady boner. As a college star and extremely rich son of owner of oil plantations, Rome should feel like the king of the world, but his life is far from being perfect.
Romeo suffers from cruel, controlling and demanding parents that treat him badly. Every day is a constant fight for being himself, when they want from him something else entirely. Living with a great responsability of being the best football player and fame makes it even harder for him to be free. A small smile transformed his normally hardened features and he took my hand and ran it across his ribs. When she finally meets Romeo her lone life changes. He ran his finger down my cheek, but almost as if the action fuelled his strength rather than gave me comfort.
He is the perfect example of alpha male and the characteristics I crave in my men. He made everything so freaking hot! Sex scenes were out of this world and the connection he had with Molly only made it so much better! Sweet Home is a perfect mix of sweetness, pain and deep love. Step by step, page by page I slowly fell in love with this complex bittersweet story.
I live for surprises like this! I need my own Romeo Prince. I highly recommend this book for every fan of sexy new adult books. View all 57 comments. Oct 24, Karla rated it did not like it Shelves: There is nothing more I dislike than not finishing a book. Especially one that I spent money on.
A couple of my sticking points: Write what you know. It There is nothing more I dislike than not finishing a book. It makes for an annoying one.
In choosing to write a book where the character needs a strong regional dialect, either spend the time to get it right, or place the book in a locale where it comes naturally.
Show me the money! Or in this case, the emotions. There is no chemistry at all. With anyone. With Shakespear and Romeo. With Shakespear and her friends. Peripheral characters were just that — grossly exaggerated caricatures of people. Although, this gem was wonderful: I want to see what prime beef is on offer? It really could have been an example in point 1, but I digress. But a jig? And the constant references to the fat girl were just annoying.
If there were any way to get my money or my time back, I would be putting in a request for a refund on both. View all 14 comments. It has been tragic for her, and now she wants to a new start. She leaves England to go to the University of Alabama. Adjusting to the american life is a bit of a struggle for her, but her new found friends are eager to take her under their wing and teach her how to experience life.
Another thing that has Molly clueless is how much these people of Alabama love football. She just doesn't get it. When she meets the star quarterback, Rome Prince, she can't help but feel attracted to him.
She just has no idea who exactly Rome Prince is or how he will impact her life. He understands me like no one before. She enjoys reading and studying. She has been on her own for quite some time so she has become accustomed to her solitude. When she arrives in America she realizes that it will change for her. She makes friends very outgoing girls that thrust her into the sorority life. I liked that just because she seemed quiet on the outside she could defend herself when she needed to.
She was intelligent, caring, and just overall very likable. The poor girl didn't stand a chance when it came to Rome Prince. Holy smokes was he hot! He was super alpha and it drove me nuts how much that melted me.
I seriously loved the guy. He doesn't have the best of upbringings either, which is how Molly and him connected even deeper. They understood what it was like to feel alone. And because of their connection, they inevitably fall for each other.
That, Molly dear, is your home sweet home. I really enjoyed this one and loved the main characters. Despite it being really sweet it wasn't complete fluff, there were some sad parts that really pulled at my heart strings.
There was also a bit of angst to keep things interesting. I could not believe how awful Rome was treated by his parents. I just loathed them. I was so glad he finally had someone that cared for him in Molly. Molly and Rome were so perfect for each other, they may have had their flaws, but that didn't affect how much I liked them. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because it was crazy cheesy and a tad bit predictable.
However, I couldn't help but love either way. It was a great romantic read. Now, if only I can find a real life Rome Prince. View all 39 comments. Aug 30, Smitten's Book Blog rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this author! Molly is a twenty year old brainiac.

With no family and no ties, working-class, English good-girl, Molly Shakespeare leaves England to study her masters in philosophy at the University of Alabama.
His successful future in football is a dead cert and he's 'Bama's hero. Roll Tide! But his cruel, controlling, oil tycoon parents have other ideas. Ideas of him taking on the family business and marrying their version of his perfect suitor. Molly has no clue about crimson Tide, or quarterbacks, or anything football related, for that matter. She doesn't know that Romeo is notorious, or that he is unattainable and dangerously moody.
She just knows that he's devestatingly good looking and that he makes her heart race. For who? But can these two 'star crossed lovers' find a way for their completely different worlds to work together?
I was a huge fan of Tillie Cole's previous novel, rom-com movie star romance, Eternally North. Check it out if you haven't already So when she asked me to read Sweet Home , I jumped at the chance. And it didn't disappoint. Again, there was some light hearted humour, a whole lot of swoon-worthy romance and also some heavier, juicier threads to the plot-line, too, adding extra depth to an otherwise sweet, cutesy romance.
It's a fairly typical bad-boy falls for good-girl story. There's a lot of them about, but I just can't get enough of them. There is something fundamentally adorable about a big hulking badass guy who suddenly exposes his soft, gooey, sensitive centre for the girl of his dreams. Don't lie, we all want that bad-boy who turns good just for li'l old us!
It's the ultimate romantic fantasy for most girls. And that's exactly what you get with Sweet Home. A guy that never commits to anyone. A guy that other guys are shit scared of and girls would gladly give a lung for. He's ripped, fast, gifted and has a very quick temper. He has the obligatory tortured past, dysfunctional family and anger issues, to boot.
He's lonely and broken and you can't help but want to fix him. Of course, he hides his scars beneath his man-whoring facade, sleeping with every girl that throws themselves at his feet.
That is, until he falls hard and fast for geeky, glasses-wearing Molly. My body recognises you as something that's good for me. My mind recognises you as someone who's right for me, and my soul recognises you as someone who is meant for me.
Sweet Home is told from her point of view, so you really get to witness her transformation throughout the book, as she discovers the girl behind the glasses.
When we meet Molly, she's not a fan of parties, she can count her friends on one hand and she has only ever had sex once.
Oh, and she wears bright orange Crocs. But don't panic, she isn't irritating and in denial about her feelings for Romeo. She quickly realises that she's attracted to him and is curious to explore those feelings, despite the fact that they scare her a little and push her out of her comfort zone. She's a great heroine and I really enjoyed reading her. I loved the comparisons to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. They were well written and comical, in a way that Tillie Cole almost pokes fun at the parallels between the two stories in some parts.
Maybe I'm just like my namesake, and maybe you're just like yours. At times, I felt that he veered a little away from dominant, toward annoyingly bossy and a little aggressive, but for the most part, it was extremely hot!
My way is better - less death, more orgasms. Both Molly and Romeo are cripplingly lonely and they find solace, comfort and companionship in each other. I really felt that connection between them, and I felt that their bond was that much stronger because they each understood one another's pain and craved the support that the other could offer them.
So heart warming. There are some heavy, upsetting scenes and I did shed a few tears. Read my 'warnings' at the end of this review if you are easily effected by emotional triggers. However, Tillie Cole did a great job of conveying the emotional trauma and of piecing her characters back together at the end of the book. It's not a country or a town or a building or possession. Home is with the other half of your soul, the person who shares your grief and helps you carry the burden of loss.
She's fantastic at writing stories with a little bit of everything in. Her books are sweet, romantic, sexy, funny and gripping. She's incredibly talented at being able to create stories that will not only have you giggling and swooning throughout, but also have depth and emotion, too.

Molly Shakespeare is studious she delves into books and works hard cause she learnt at a young age what its like to be lonely she runs away from anything that will allow her to get near anyone else just in case that person gets taken away from her again. Her mum died at birth her dad died when she was 6 and then her gran who she adored and brought her up died when she was 14 leaving her in foster care we know that's not always the best therefore she has brought herself up she stands on her own two feet and with her head held high, but she doesn't let people in greatly until she meets Romeo.
Romeo hasn't had the best upbringing with cold hearted parents who only care about money and their reputation it doesn't matter about his goals or aspirations or what he wants with his life that's what they want for him to be the dutiful son, but Romeo is the Best Quarterback in town he's a born leader and loves his team, but due to his upbringing he doesn't let people in either apart from his cousin who he adores and his only release is women lots of them but they don't know his heart nor anything other than the player that he is.
But one class is all it takes to find each other and find something that pulls at their seams they just can't seem to walk away from each other. I don't get it. You somehow give me peace in my completely fucked-up world. It's that simple. This is also a story about firsts!!! Touches and kisses. Romeo is the Quarterback he loves his team it's what he strives to be, he loves it he's good at it but his parents don't approve and while he loves it he has to be careful with the people he cares about which is why he's never let anyone in.
This book has a level of angst to it, I was biting my nails at the later end of the book when I realised or guessed what was happening. Romeo is Intense and when he loves and lets in he loves HARD and HARD he loves his girl his lucky girl who he needs to protect and he'll do anything in his power to do that.
My Thoughts I loved it, it kept me on my toes I was ahhing when they first kissed, I was jumping for joy when they got down to it I mean those scenes blew me away, Intense sexy emotional and I had tears in my eyes on many quotes I highlighted a lot.
Rome is everything I want in an hero he's Strong, he wants to dominate in the bedroom its where he seeks control its what he needs, where his parents never aloud it in his life he does there and he does on the field. Molly is Independent, slightly geeky but opposites attract and that was for sure with these pair I instantly felt their attraction, their chemistry THEM.
She is also strong but they ultimately needed each other and together they were heart warming, lovely, sexy I really don't want to stop reading them so going to now read Sweet Rome. View all 44 comments. I am seriously swooning over here!
I don't know what it was--timing or what--but this book was just what I was looking for. I really, really loved it!!! Now don't go running for the hills Molly and Romeo's story was so-so sweet. They melted my heart. And made me smile. And giggle like a love-sick school girl! She' 4. She's studying for her Master's.
She's quirky, different, brainy. She meets Romeo on the first day of classes. Romeo is the starting QB for the Crimson Tide. He's aloof, angry, moody, man-whore. He's intrigued by Molly. Romeo, Romeo, Romeo Romeo was bloody brilliant.
He was possessive and demanding and RAWR but at the same time sweet and protective and loving. It was the perfect mix. But he was so broken and damaged from his GAWD awful parents. Romeo's mom I loved the supporting characters--Molly's tobacco spittin' roomate Cass especially. She was hilarious! Really there wasn't a ton of angst in this book.
At least nothing too stupid and annoying. There were a few cheesy bits but nothing that took away from the story. Romeo and Molly were super HOT together Romeo in the bedroom I need a Romeo. I loved their football game "kiss" tradition. SO sweet! I just loved Romeo and Molly They were two broken people who found "home" with each other. Mar 30, Catarina rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was exactly what happened for me in this one. I thought why it took almost a year for me to read this.
Because, my friends, this book is a majestically written and beautiful love story. Lonely Molly just arrived at college in Alabama to finish her masters.
For him to be as broken and lonely and her. But when his parents start to interfere, crazy ex-girlfriend enter the picture, their pasts and everyone around them including the media are lurking in every corner, they find their path to happiness, can be rougher than they ever thought.
Characters Development: I loved them both. Loved them individually, because Molly was so strong and yet, sweet and Rome was also all these things. Although slightly broken, he was a loyal and passionate hero that gave everything he had.
I loved him. Sensible Subjects: Parental Abuse. View all 18 comments. Oct 18, Jen rated it really liked it Recommended to Jen by: It makes me incredibly On the surface it seems like a typical opposites attract kind of deal, but the reality is so much more than that. One of the "Mmm One of the reasons this story worked as well as it did for me is because Molly and Rome, at their core, are more alike than they are different. Both are afraid to risk their hearts and enter into a relationship and both aren't planning on letting anyone get too close anytime soon.
Molly's experienced a tremendous amount of loss for someone her age and Romeo's life, though it looks perfect from the outside, has actually been one big nightmare. Take away the success he's had as a huge name in college football and he's still a truly broken and beat down soul.
From their first encounter, Molly and Romeo seem to recognize a deeper attraction and from there things get real possessive, real quick! I'm gonna own every goddamn piece of your soul, and I'm never gonna let you go. You're gonna scream my name over and over until it's permanently lodged in your friggin' throat. You're not gonna be just a fuck to me, Mol-you're gonna be my fuckin' salvation! Molly, being English born and raised, cracked me up with her indoctrination to the 'Bama college football experience.
I went to a University with a great football team and a whole lot of fan enthusiasm, but folks were just as apt to talk about their sweet new mountain bike as they were football. This book made it clear that Alabama football is considered a religion in that state!
I really enjoyed reading this book but it's not for everyone. For my friends that don't enjoy the insta-love scenario, this may not be for you. It's not necessarily "you're mine, back to my cave" stuff, but it's pretty damn close. Romeo's possessive and demanding, but also broken and completely open to Molly's love.
That's enough for me. Fateful star-crossed lovers. We have a lifetime to get to know each other, unlike our namesakes. I'll makes sure we get our happily ever after. Jan 04, Jen rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tillie Cole did it again!!!
Review to come This author is now officially up with my favorites!!! View all 17 comments. Molly has a past that is filled with so much heartbreak and is basically an orphan. When things get too rough for her, she runs away from the situation.
He's known to have a bad boy reputation and he also has practically slept with most of the coeds on campus. He comes from old money and he also has a heartbreaking story.
When Molly and Rome meet there is an instant attraction and I have to say it was pretty much "insta-love". I know some times people hate when this happens in a story, but I think in some instances it is appropriate.
In this story, I totally get how these two fell so hard, so fast. It happens some times. Two people just connect on a crazy level. These two were made to love each other. She was the cute and nerdy British girl who wore orange crocs to class. Any girl who can rock a pair of crocs and not give a damn about what other people think, is pretty fabulous to me. I really felt for this poor girl. I can't even imagine losing everyone I loved and moving to a different country where I didn't have any family or friends.
She was definitely a brave girl. Some times a little too naive, but all around a very lovable heroine. I was hooked the moment these two ran into each other outside class, and won over when they first kiss during a Sorority Pledge hazing.
His home life has been pretty atrocious. I can't even begin to describe how disgusting his parents were. They were so evil at times I thought it was just a bit over the top. But as I read on, I understood why the author wrote the story this way.
Not only is Rome the Star Quarterback, and the object of every girls'desire, he is also what I would call a Dominant. Now he's not a hardcore Dom, but he definitely makes sure he is the one in control when having sex.
I had issues with this in the beginning. I am not a prude or against BDSM. I actually love reading BDSM stories. I would go so far as to say I'd even try some of it out.
BUT, I thought it was quite odd to have this in the story. I really felt it didn't fit. As I read on, and learned about Rome's childhood and why his parents were always so evil to him, I understood his need for Control when it came to sex. Rome and Molly will face obstacles. Of course, you know they are not going to have an HEA early on in the story.
There is bound to be a thing or two that will threaten their relationship. Some things had me screaming, and there were times I was close to tears. I have to say I really just wanted Rome's mom to die a horrible death. I mean this guy knows what he is doing and his Dom like behavior may have caused a few panty soaking moments.
I really enjoyed the book and at first I was going to rate this a 4, but towards the end, Rome just had my heart melting and so I went and changed it to a 4.

Well yep, that was Sweet Home.. Not only do we get the uber sexy sin on a stick quarterback Romeo, aka Rome, we also get some good ole SEC Football Roll Tide , a quirky braineack that doesnt know her own sex appeal, a college campus setting, and a heart warming True LOVE story..
Roll Tide just comes out whenever you talk Bama football. Thats just the way it is. Godlike on the football field. Destined for greatness in the NFL. Chicks love him and he has no short supply of all types of hoochie mama's wanting to drop their panties for Rome. He's seriously got it going on HARD. Then we've got sweet Molly..
She's also sexy but she hides it well behind her sexy librarian glasses and hair buns. She's from England but traveled all the way to Alabama to assist her philosophy professor for one year.
She's got some really cool roomies though that are determined to break her out of her shell and show her what college life is all about Rome and Mol crash into each other in the hall on the way to class and of course it's insta chemistry..
What intrests him the most though.. He's used to girls fawning all over him.. But Molly wants to avoid him if at all possible. He give her all kinds of tingles and she's not looking for tingles See, Molly's got some serious heartache inside. She's lived a tough life and has experienced some great sadness in her life. She doesn't open up to anyone and she likes it that way.
Then Rome.. Rome may seem to have it all on the outside but his family life is total shit. He's got some of the shitiest parents totally everrrrr. Like ever and ever. They really suck. Total suck monkey ass suck. They suck. What when Rome decides that someone like Molly is just what he needs, he goes after her. Sweet Mol really never stood a chance. But Rome shows her a side that no one else sees. For some reason he feels like he can really open up to her and Molly feels the same.
They have a connection.. But the road isn't easy for them With a vendictive wanna be girlfriend, evil parents, and tragedy along the way.. Really rough But this is a love so strong Yep, we get a seriously amazing story and a sweet HEA I was so wrapped up in Romeo and Molly that I hated for their story to end. So so good.

NO ONE talks like these people, the whole thing was a total joke. Even if this had been the best plotted story, I still could not have liked it simply because of the dumbass dialogue. Also, this was not the best plotted story. Not even close. It makes me cringe to think that this well-known tale of star-crossed lovers has been used in any way whatsoever to inspire this piece of work laden with cheesy circumstances, stupid dialogue, and weak characterizations overflowing with over the top stereotypes.
And Shakespeare is probably rolling over in his grave right now and wondering-- ok, I am so NOT gonna finish this sentence. And it goes both ways too: Oh well, all I can say is, thank god for goodreads. View all 36 comments.

Oct 21, Shell The Belle rated it did not like it Shelves: Oops, I did it again — I fell for the hype, that is. Why oh why are there so many freaking 5 Star reviews for this???? I can only think that a lot of female readers get a whiff of what they are told is an Alpha Male and their brains cease to function correctly.
Molly goes to Alabama to the college where Rome Prince is the star quarterback of the college football team. Molly annoys the hell out of me from the beginning, when she first meets the male MC.
He introduces himself as Rome. I can only think that the Author wanted to continually remind us of the Romeo and Juliette connection she was trying so hard to push, and thought that we might otherwise forget if he was referred to as Rome.
I personally think it is better to stay away from attempting to write accents, preferring the Author to say they all spoke with a deep Southern twang and maybe give one example, then I can put the rest together in my head.
Apart from that, the characters all lacked any real depth. It would appear the Author was trying too hard to make Rome an Alpha Male, and a young wannabe Dominant. Ever just once felt anything for me? There are many more, but I cant be bothered to go into detail. The scenes between Molly and Mrs Prince later in the book are farcical. The sex scenes.
Get a bucket ready. Good God. Molly is relatively inexperienced — just one sexual experience that was apparently not much of one yawn whilst of course Rome is the stereotypical man whore who has shed loads of experience.
A real keeper, this one. All in all though I was very disappointed with this one. Will I ever find my Alpha Male worthy of multi stars??
My search continues. Oct 16, K rated it it was amazing Shelves: It only took Romeo one look at Juliet and his fate was sealed. This book was an unexpected surprise! I was seeing this book on everyone's reading list and figured I'd give it a shot. I love when I immerse myself in a book that I don't have high expectations for and then end up falling in love with it!
That's what Sweet Home was for me Romeo and Juliet.
Both names of people that have a tragically beautiful love. Both tell the story of forces trying to consume their love. A love that was meant to be.
A love that is beyond anything either could have ever hoped for. He arched his eyebrows meaningfully. He has a broad chest, a deep southern drawl, long, dirty-blond hair, and is the quarterback for the Alabama Tides.
Molly Shakespeare on the other hand is an English, painfully private introvert who has followed her professor to Alabama to be a teaching assistant. Both Romeo and Molly are in the wrong place at the right time when their worlds collide. They both have troubled pasts and ghosts that would destroy their love if they let them. They are trying to keep it a secret from Romeo's abusive parents and Molly just doesn't want to be seen as another one of Romeo Prince's latest conquests.
Unfortunately, secrets have a funny way of coming out and sometimes, no matter how hard they might try to prevent it, their love is destined to be filled with heartbreak. I loved Romeo Prince. He is everything that I love in a hero. He is hot, protective, possessive and just the total alpha male package. Yes, he can be secretive. Yes, he's bossy and dominating. But he's also damaged and vulnerable. I just absolutely adored him.
Molly was an awesome heroine. She was the lovable nerd that has suffered immense grief in her past that we can all relate to. Fantastic set of characters! When Romeo and Molly first meet they form an instant attraction. Romeo's long believed dead heart feels a pulse that he hasn't felt in years and Molly sees in Romeo the love that she's afraid to feel. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives. Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail.
When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke. When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he say. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn't expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her. That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened? That's what his roommate, Baz, says. Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire.
His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here — it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.
The whole world is a nerd. Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars? So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she's expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does.
What she's not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels. Kindred Spirits is about Elena, who decides to queue to see the new Star Wars movie and meets Gabe, a fellow fan. Rainbow Rowell - Almost Midnight. Rainbow Rowell - Attachments.

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 realizes that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever Sweet Rome Book 1. January 28th Rating: Now hear the story from his lips: 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 ten, eleven, twelve—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: Tell that to thousands of kids around the world getting wailed on by asshole parents for whatever stupid reason; tell them evil don't exist in their eyes.
