Publisher's Summary

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....

What the Critics Say

"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."

Brilliant

Would you listen to Sweet Home again? Why?

Absolutely. The narrator not only changed her voice to suit the characters and put on the accents and whatnot she really got the emotion of the story and it choked me up and caused my eyes to tear up in the most devastating areas.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Home?

There are so many its hard to choose just one. Off the top of my head, near the end when you first see Rome's tattoo.


Which character – as performed by Anna Parker-Naples – was your favourite?

Hard to choose, each character was performed wonderfully and their personalities really came through.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Absolutely I had an emotional reaction and more than one, it made me laugh, made me cry, made me feel a whole range of emotions from anger on the characters behalf to melting at heartfelt words.


Any additional comments?

Amazing book, amazing series and the narration added something new to it. Definitely worth the stars.
