5 sweet stars!
Sweet Rome is the second book of the series and this one is told from the male’s POV, Rome Prince. Now, I usually don’t like books that are a repeat story because basically it’s just the same story with a few extras and mostly boring. Not this one.
“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.”
Rome’s story is so unique and touching that it needed to be told and his book was both heartbreaking and beautiful.
“We are better together, than apart.”
Molly Juliet Shakespeare and Romeo Prince are back and I swooned all over again with their story! Just like the first one, I loved every single word. Like I said on my review for the first book, kudos to the author for such an amazing writing that captivated me and if it was any other book I might have rolled my eyes a couple of time but not with this one!
We were both tragic, both pretty fucked up. But we could be fucked up together, balance it out.
Even if this book is the same story, it seemed so different than the first one. Rome’s POV was heartbreaking and due to the plot, there was – in Rome’s favor for his book – a gap in which the characters were apart for a while and Rome’s POV was like an extra on their love story.
Fuck Romeo and Juliet: this is the story of me and my girl, from my lips. No mushy sentiment, no cheese, just the plain, hard truth, and, because I’m feeling generous, I’m going to let you in on more of our story too.
Swoon worthy and just as amazing as the first book, read it and fall in love with Molly and Rome.
