Description

At age 20, 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 gray 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....

Commentaires

"Anna Parker-Naples's portrayal of Molly Juliet Shakespeare captures the dramatic highs and lows in this modern-day spin on a Shakespeare classic. Molly is a teaching assistant working on her master's degree at the University of Alabama, where she becomes the object of desire of star quarterback Romeo Prince. Parker-Naples's English accent and lilting voice bring out Molly's uniqueness as well as her innocence and moments of sadness when she's reminded of her lonely past. This sweetness is transformed into a rough sexiness during Molly's erotic interludes with Romeo...she differentiates voices well and knows how to pace her reading to project the hostility encountered by the young lovers." ( AudioFile Magazine)

Narrator a miss on this one

The narrator's British accent sounded fine to these American ears, but oh my the southern accents were unbelievably awful. I don't understand how a book can be released with such mediocre narration. The story was ok, but overly formula sex scenes (with a touch of Shades of Gray); silly and didn't fit. The one at the very end of the book ... the one where the reader would think the story has already ended ... was over the top not needed.

Actually I tried to return this book and wasn't able to. Sorry to have a negative review as there is talent in both the writer and narrator, but it just didn't come together for me in this story.

Just Like Romeo and Juliet ... Well Sorta

I love this story and Tillie Cole is quickly climbing the list as one of my favorite authors. Rome and Molly are such interesting and compelling characters and they are surrounded by loyal and interesting friends. This has the makings of a must listen to series with a very strong beginning. Molly and Rome have such different lives yet somehow they seem to be a perfect fit. This is an enticing story of young love overcoming many obstacles and I was cheering for them all the way.

Anna does a really good job as narrator for Molly and a marginal job as narrator for the southern females but absolutely awful as narrator for the southern males, especially Rome. Fortunately, this was such a good story I could overlook this part of the narration,

Definitely worth the credit. I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.

I loved the narrator while doing female voices.

The storyline was well written with well developed characters. I like more pull in the beginning though.

Good story...male voice lacking

Good overall story, but narrators male voice is awful. The big alpha football player sounds like a whiny woman

Roll Tide!

I enjoy Tillie Cole's books but I admit this one holds a special place in my heart - since I am a Bama girl! Roll Tide!

Not sure how I feel.

Okay so I love a good sport romance and I especially love a good football romance. I did not hate this book but I also did not love it. I felt like Romeo parents was way too over the top for a modern story. I hated that portion and the drama they bought. I LOVED the supporting characters. I also thought that Romeo and Molly's love story was cute. I love when the underdog wins!

Love the story, don't like the performance

This story is awesome...I couldn't put the book down, unfortunately, I couldn't listen to the performance. This is a read only book for me.

Great Book

I absolutely loved the characters. Romeo was all hard on the outside, but soft on the inside and had a heart of gold. His story was sad and made me want to wrap my arms around him and never let go.

Molly was shy and a little standoffish, but get her riled up and watch out for her claws. She was a lot strong than she thought. Her story was sad but not to the extent of Romeos.

It was fun experience the two falling madly in love with each other. Truly a good book.

It was

Okay

If you liked Twilight, Pitch Perfect and 50 Shades of Grey and thought "Damn if someone put all of those together it would be great" then this is the story for you. I was able to finish the whole story which I guess means it wasn't all bad, but I rolled my eyes a lot. Molly is sometimes TSTL and the voice used for Rome just made him sound whinny not sexy or dominant. Sometime I still thought it was Molly speaking the voice just became slightly more nasal for Rome with a country accent instead of British. Overall this is the only book in this series I will read, I don't think I can get through anymore.

Narrator ruined it for me.

Good story, but I did NoT enjoy the narrator's voice(s). I will continue the series because this narrator doesn't read any more of the books in this series...thank goodness!

Rubbish. A waste of time.

Gave it the benefit of the doubt but had to discontinue half way through. Badly written, characters unrealistic, cheap storyline - mainly focused on (bad) sex and bitchy drama.
