Mia Kelly is a twenty-five-year-old walking Gap ad who thinks she has life figured out when her father’s sudden death uproots her from slow-paced Ann Arbor to New York City’s bustling East Village. There she discovers her father’s spirit for life and the legacy he left behind with the help of an old café, a few eccentric friends, and one charming musician.

Will Ryan is good-looking, poetic, spontaneous, and on the brink of fame when he meets Mia, his new landlord, muse, and personal heartbreaker.

A story of self-discovery and friendship, Sweet Thing shines light on the power of loving and letting go.

 This is a story about a girl who truly needs to find herself. She is able to do this, unfortunately through the loss of her dad. Mia is moving from her life she has always known to take over her father’s coffee shop. While on the plane ride to NYC, she meets Will Ryan. Will is full of life. Through circumstances they both find themselves living with each other. Will is renting a room from Mia. They start off with this friendship even though they are both drawn to each other.

Poor Mia, she made me so mad in this book that sometimes I wanted to pull my hair out, but then at the same time I at this gut-wrenching sorrow for her. She is a girl who really needed to find herself. You watch her grow through so truly heartbreaking scenes but the person she becomes on the otherside is a strong confident lovable Mia. The writing in this book is unbelievable in the descriptions of how Mia is and what she was going through. I found myself really rooting for her to overcome her emotional hang-ups. She truly deserves happiness.

Will is absolutely 100% edible. Yes there were times he was an ass, but he was so patient and loving towards Mia and the heartwarming end is unbelievable. I loved his character. He knew Mia needed to find her self and gave her space. It was the true meaning to if you love something let it go, and if it is meant to be it will come back. What a wonderful love story.

Renee Carlino has done a wonderful job on this story. I was intrigued from the moment it started until the end. There were so many different high points in this book.
5 AMAZING stars.
