Review: SWEET LITTLE THING (Sweet Thing #1.5) by Renée Carlino
Expected Release Date: March 4, 2014
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.

A letter to Will:
Oh Will, you are such a sexy, funny, and romantic man. I can see why Mia loves you so. Thank you for sharing this glimpse into your lives with me. It was just what I needed after the end of Sweet Thing. In Sweet Little Thing, I laughed and cried, swooned and fanned myself a few times! I mean, really, some of those moments were frankly HOT!
Will, your voice in Sweet Little Thing shone through and had me falling just a little more in love with you (sorry, Mia!). The sweet, deeply emotional moments with Mia gripped my heart and filled it with so much love. Your emotions caught me in their grasp and left me wanting to be a part of your lives forever!
Let’s talk about the other relationships in your and Mia’s lives. Your friends truly stand out as critical parts of your lives. Real friendships, real hilarity, real pain… it’s all part of life and I loved experiencing that with you in Sweet Little Thing. Oh, and to think that they might know more about music than you? Pfft! As for Martha, I wish I had a Martha in my life to dish out thoughtful, thought-provoking wisdom. I’ll just borrow her from you when needed, if you don’t mind?
As for the music, it clearly comes through how woven and integral it is through your and Mia’s lives. Knowing which songs were the soundtrack of your lives during the course of Sweet Little Thing added depth to an otherwise well-crafted story. I found some new favorites, thank you very much!
I’ll close by saying the way you care, the way you love, the way you protect, those are truly beautiful things. I loved being a part of your moments with Mia, your friends, and family. Thank you for sharing those intimate, funny, erotic, soul-deep emotional life steps. I believe whoever reads your story will love you and Mia all that much more! Now go give Mia a kiss for me!
p.s. Thanks for the glimpse from Mia! Made my heart melt!
Renée’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.
