At age twenty, 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 grey 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 realises that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever...

Mature New Adult novel — contains adult content, highly sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up*

Val’s Review

9/9/16…After watching the NFL opener last night – GO BRONCOS! – I feel like setting everything else aside and re-reading one of my all-time favorite football series again…


I’ve read this so many times, if it were a paperback, the pages would be worn out. Just LOVE it.

Every time.

5+++++ Sweet Stars


This book was like a mix of Legally Blonde, A Cinderella Story(that movie with Hilary Duff), Beautiful Disaster, completely over the top family drama and possessiveness, spikes of Alabama football, and the ridiculous names of Molly Juliet Shakespeare and Romeo Prince…all with with an English flair to sweeten the kitty…and I inhaled it like a Dyson.


I am a total sucker for the hot guy falls for the nerd stories.


It’s shameful. It’s cliche. And I’m not sorry.

And if you take that theme AND add sports, and alpha male, AND random Shakespearean and Monty Python references?!?!

Holeeeeeeee. Shite.


I enjoyed the fuck out of this story.

Molly was really sweet and level-headed and I liked her a lot.


And Romeo was swoon-worthy.


I just LOVED them.


There was also a decent supporting cast and an engaging plot, which I always love. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
