Review:Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino


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.


Review:

“You have to teach your heart and mind how to sing together... then you'll hear the sound of your soul”

"Sweet Thing" is exactly the kind of book you can read when you want to read something light and easy.It was a beautiful book about two stubborn people,Will and Mia,who are very talented musicians.
It wasn't exactly how i imagined,and after i read so many good reviews about the book i wanted to read it and make my own opinion.

The story was beautiful,even if a few times i wanted more from the characters.Sometimes i thought everything was too simple,and a little boring,but  that was until i got the chance to read more about Will.
The way their relationship evolved was crazy.The attraction between them was obvious,but,well,like i said they were too stubborn.Mainly,Mia.Hmm.
They tried to be just friends and they failed,something i wished to happen from the moment the word friend slipped out of Mia's mouth.
Honestly,i kind of understand why Mia tried to keep him at arm's lenght.She was scared and a relationship wasn't exactly on top of the list ,when she was trying to recover after losing her father.

Will was adorable!From the beginning,when he almost freaked out on the plane when he met Mia,until the end of the book.He wasn't perfect,but he tried so hard to do everything right.There were moments when i laughed out loud,he was funny and sometimes he acted a little strange,but i didn't care.

Mia tried to do what she thought was good for her.She tried to protect herself,but that wasn't what she needed.All she did was lie to herself and end up with a heartbreak.I disliked her in that moment.It was insane,and i wished that i could shake her until she realized the truth.Heh,if only..

Did i mention they were both talented?Well,they were.And the moments when they spent together singing or talking about music were perfect!I loved their passion for music,the way they talked about what they wanted to do,or their favorite music and artists.Perfect for each other..Yup.

Everything happens for a reason..Well,i guess that's the way to describe how everything ended.Beautiful ,romantic and hearbreaking ,"Sweet Thing" was the story of a young woman who had to go through some hard moments to finally realize what was best for her.

Why only 4 stars?Because of Mia's decisions.Yeah,i disliked they way she acted sometimes and they way she treated Will,but..everything else deserves 4 stars from me.
