Review From User :
I know I am six years late to this particular party, but my reading advisor, Robin Hill, recently supplied me with a fantastic list of books she loved and figured I would as well. This gem was on that list, and once again, her instincts were spot on.
With blinders fully in place, I opened to the prologue and it wasn't long before I was in angst heaven!
I must forewarn you about the main characters, Will and Mia. Will oozes sex appeal and is adorable X 10. Mia ... well, she will most likely get on your nerves a time or two. Ah geez, who am I kidding, at least a half dozen times ;)
Although Will and Mia's chemistry was palpable, this my friends, is how you write an engaging slow burn romance. I loved how playing music together was their aphrodisiac.
A total page turner, and I savored every word.
“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 cafe, 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.
A “heartbreaking and romantic” (Aestas Book Blog) debut, Sweet Thing explores the intensity and complexities of first love and self-discovery.
