Book Review: "Sweet Little Thing" by Renee Carlino

Sweet Little Thing

(Sweet Thing #1.5)
Ever wonder what happened after the final pages of Sweet Thing? 

From his candid and sometimes neurotic point of view, Will tells all in this musical and sexy follow-up novella to Renée Carlino’s USA Today Bestseller.

Life is pure bliss for Mia and Will. They have a puppy, a loft in Brooklyn, and a new music studio on the rise. It seems things couldn’t get any better for this talented couple when life decides to throw them a sweet little curve ball. 

They quickly learn that things don't always go according to plan. Sometimes happily ever after is one giant leap of faith away.
With the help of good music, good friends, and one eccentric old lady, they overcome a few of life’s little bumps to find the sweetest thing of all.

Watch this duo grow in more ways than one in SWEET Little THING.

4.5 Stars

A beautifully written addition to a fantastic story! Will Ryan will always make my heart swoon. That man is just…perfect. I absolutely love him and he’ll forever hold a special place in my heart. And what’s even more perfect? Sweet Little Thing is written in Will’s point of view!!! Ahhhh!!! *happiest sigh ever*

“…something came alive in me the day I met you. It was so strong a force that I knew completely and with all my heart that you would be in my life forever.” – Will

This novella continues the story of Will and Mia. Happily engaged living life the way they want to live it -- creating beautiful and meaningful music. Everything is perfect. They are planning their wedding in complete bliss. Until, they get a little surprise. Queue the mini panic attack. They certainly were not expecting to be expecting so soon. But when two people love each other like Mia and Will do, it’s them against the world and they win each and every time. Their connection runs so deep that their souls are entwined. They just get each other. They complete each other.

 “We have everything we need right here, between us”

Even though this is a short and sweet read, Renee Carlino manages to fully portray the depth of Will’s love for Mia. The way he loves her, truly and deeply, leaves me breathless at the turn of every page. You can tell he has a heart of gold. Simply put, Will is as wonderful as ever. He not only protects Mia from bad things, but helps her…guides her through ‘sticky’ situations, even if he is internally freaking out.

This novella has swoon-worthy, sexy, and emotional moments. Heck, it even has funny (laugh-out-loud-funny) moments. I mean, the fart scene?? Ha!!! I totally laughed! And that’s just to mention ONE funny part. 

Sweet Little Thing is honestly a wonderful conclusion to Will and Mia’s beautiful journey. I am in love with that ending. It’s 100% them. Perfect. I got my full closure and my heart is completely happy. I highly recommend you buy Sweet Thing and Sweet Little Thing. They are both must read books! Once you meet Will Ryan, your life will not be the same. That guy…. Dreamy sigh.

“We can find our people, love, respect them, and then hang on for dear life because it’s not where you go on this journey but who you’re with that matters the most.” – Mia

Sweet Thing
(Sweet Thing #1)
"You have to teach your heart and mind how to sing together…then you'll hear the sound of your soul."

Mia Kelly thinks she has it all figured out. She's an Ivy League graduate, a classically trained pianist, and the beloved daughter of a sensible mother and offbeat father. Yet Mia has been stalling since graduation, torn between putting her business degree to use and exploring music, her true love.

When her father unexpectedly dies, she decides to pick up the threads of his life while she figures out her own. Uprooting herself from Ann Arbor to New York City, Mia takes over her father's café, a treasured neighborhood institution that plays host to undiscovered musicians and artists. She's denied herself the thrilling and unpredictable life of a musician, but a chance encounter with Will, a sweet, gorgeous, and charming guitarist, offers her a glimpse of what could be. When Will becomes her friend and then her roommate, she does everything in her power to suppress her passions-for him, for music-but her father's legacy slowly opens her heart to the possibility of something more.

About the author:

Renee Carlino
Renee’s first friends were the imaginary kind and even though her characters haven’t gone away, thankfully the delusions have. She admits she’s a wildly hopeless romantic and she blames 80’s movies staring Molly Ringwald for that. She lives in Southern California with her husband, two sons, and their sweet dog June. When she’s not at the beach with her boys or working on the next book, she likes to spend her time reading, going to concerts, and eating dark chocolate.
