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….
LOUISA’S 4 STAR REVIEW
By fate alone, I read this book last December. It had been on my kindle and I just needed to find the time to read it. So we got on an airplane for 2 college visits. I began reading this after my visit to the University of Alabama <—— YUP UA! I had no idea this book was set at BAMA. I thought – this must be fate. (BAMA was my son’s #1 pick for college).
I read the book, falling love with Rome and Molly instantly. The #RollTide QB and the nerdy English girl.
This past November I was looking for an audible to listen to and this came up…Ahhhh….I loved that book let me listen to it!
Another perfect time for me to listen. My son just returned from his first semester at the University of Alabama and I loved hearing about these characters again and thinking how my son is there and making memories like Rome and Molly (and the gang) were. The frat parties, the football games, the friendships – all what he’s experiencing. It was also on the heels of BAMA winning the SEC Championship and playing in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl. I am on a #AlabamaHigh
This coming of age story is a must read/listen to for any YA fan.
I may be a bit biased but this book has again captured my attention and my heart. I feel as though the story is believable and relatable.
The narrator did a wonderful job with Molly and I felt her compassion and feeling through her words. I wasn’t a huge fan of her accent as Rome and the other men or southern women, but taking a British narrator and having her do a male southern voice is a huge stretch. It didn’t deter me from listening and I again think this book is a great start to a series by Tillie Cole that I need to continue.
