Sweet Home

Sweet Home - Tillie Cole Had to DNF...just couldn't handle the...any of it really. I wanted to like it. I've read another novel by Tillie Cole--Eternally North--and I five star loved it! so not liking this...hurt me.
The dialogue bothered me...I am a southern girl, not 'Bama southern so I get its different, but damn the "accents" killed me.
Also...I didn't find Romeo's Alpha stuff attractive. His possessiveness...was...like red-flag worrisome. I did appreciate his crappy situation and his need to hold onto Molly, I did and I'm glad he found her, really! But...uh...I do not find it romantic or hot for a man to growl "you can never leave me!"....I'm sorry...that's like...uh...bothersome.
The first sex scene had me cringing...yeah, no panty-dripping hotness, I was cringing and almost...pissed off at our dear Romeo.
There were hot moments and there were sweet moments and this book had a ton of potential and perhaps it got better, I made it to 64%...I think it was the parents that finally did me in.

That whole "who could love a stone in their shoe?" thing which happens to be really close to the "who could love a pebble in their shoe?" from Ever After was just like...I can't do it.
I do feel badly, I know tons of people loved this and I'm glad and honestly, if you haven't read

Romeo and Juliet is my least favorite read and maybe the constant reminder of that damn story soured this a bit too.
Overall, this story was a miss, but the author is awesome so I would read others.
