If I could say one thing about Sweet Little Thing it would be that it is a perfect little novella. I believe it to be one of the first novellas I’ve reviewed so perhaps I’m a little biased, but regardless, Sweet Little Thing provides the perfect insight to Will and Mia’s lives following the last pages of Sweet Thing. (Final pages, not the Epilogue).
After finding one another again, Mia and Will have moved to Brooklyn to start over as a couple. They’re engaged, Will’s opened a studio, all that’s left is to get married and make music. But it isn’t that easy. Somehow life always seems to get in the way – pulling them along for the ride. But no matter how hard you try to plan for things, life can always surprise you. As their lives finally begin to unfold, watch as Mia and Will take another big leap of faith and welcome another sweet little thing into their lives.
At first it was hard remembering that this book was from Will’s POV. Part of me felt that it was hard to differentiate between Will’s and Mia’s, and often felt like Mia was telling the story instead. Will is so playful, and honest, and even sometimes a little bit scary, but he genuinely cares for Mia and wants to do what’s best for her. That’s the kind of love everyone should have; a love where you can be playful, have fun, have naked dinners, and cuddle, and yell at each other while still being madly in love.
The wedding and their sweet little surprise all seemed so fast. I would have liked to see some more of Mia and Will and how he treated her while she was pregnant; how they managed to balance their lives with the studio as well. I think all of those things would be adorable if explored in further detail, making the novella a little bit longer.
But, other than that I have no complaints. I thoroughly enjoyed the end of their love story, and how their love and trust and family grew even more. SIGH
“Sometimes we’re just along for the ride,” she said over my shoulder. “We can’t control everything; we can only do our best to control our reactions when life doesn’t go our way.”
