Yes you've seen it right, Tillie has made the list twice! Totally unbiased people *holds hands up*. I have been in love with Tillie's work since Sweet Home, so it's only natural book two in Rome's POV makes the list. Now lucky you, I have my review for this one, because I was a part of the tour this year. You can find it on the Reviews page HERE, as well as on Goodreads. I have the fabulous cover and synopsis below, as well as buy links!
You met Romeo Prince in the Amazon & USA Today bestselling novel, Sweet Home. Now hear the story from his lips: unbarred, uncensored, and raw to the bone.
It makes me laugh when I hear folks think Molly and I rushed into things too fast, spouting that we couldn't possibly have felt what we did for each other in such a short space of time. I say, how the hell would they know? We made it, didn't we? She became my whole life, didn't she? And as for my folks not being real, being true? Tell that to me aged ten, eleven, twelve—damn, all my bastard life—when I was never enough, when I was beaten until I bled for being too good at football and not being everything they'd dreamed: the perfectly dutiful son. Tell that to thousands of kids around the world getting wailed on by asshole parents for whatever stupid reason; tell them evil don't exist in their eyes.
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.

Pic, bio and links so you can fangirl over her as much as I do.
Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother -- a farmer's daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.
Finally some review hoghlights for you, so you can get a sense of how much I loved this book. 'Cause saying I loved it doesn;t seem like enough...
"Hey Romeo Prince waits for no one, once you're in that's it. Fate sealed."
"As if Rome's pain wasn't portrayed enough in book one, Tillie illustrates beautifully the depth of his feelings for Molly, the hardships of his life and his fight to win, own and keep the woman he loves."
"It was just heartbreakingly beautiful. My emotions were all over the place, I cried, laughed, swooned and screamed bloody murder."
"The never before scenes illustrated the complexities of Rome's character, it wasn't as clear cut as we assumed from book one but rather a hell lot more complicated. Everything is gradually explained, keeping in rhythm with the pace Tillie sets and the steady flow of her writing captivating you until the end."
