Listen closely. Do you hear that? It is my heart just pitter pattering away over Will Ryan ;) Talk about S.W.O.O.N.Y. to the nth degree, and I didn’t think it was possible for him to get even more adorable!

...Trust her judgment. She put me through a year of torturous hell, and she trampled on my heart at least fourteen times just to make sure we were right for each other.

This is a very worthwhile novella to “Sweet Thing” and is told in Will’s POV. I totally enjoyed spending more time with Wil

… it’s not where you go on this journey but who you’re with that matters the most

I am afraid this one was a bit of a disappointment for me. I really liked the first book and maybe the expectations were too high.

Will and Mia are together and happy so this is their journey. Had some music references that I love but there was something missing from this one that made the first one so good for me.

If you’ve read Sweet Thing, then you know how incredible Will Ryan is. Sweet Little Thing is a novella completely from his perspective. It reads almost like an extended epilogue to Sweet Thing.
Surrendering to this crazy thing called life is hard, but we don’t have to be the soulless sheets of paper tarrying along in the wind. We can find our people, love, respect them, and then hang on for dear life because it’s not where you go on this journey but who you’re with

This by far is one of my most favorite novellas ever! Renee Carlino has done such an amazing job of bringing us back into Will and Mia's lives. It was so much fun to catch up with these two.

Having this novella told mostly by Will was simply music to my ears, pun intended. Sweet Little Thing had me laughing, tearing up and I’m not going to lie, some of the sex scenes were HOT!

We catch up with Will and Mia adjusting to their new life together. Bo

This short story show us the life of Mia and Will after the end of the first book. After all the drama from the first book now he have the chance to see their wedding, the training (or the failing process) of their new dog, June and see them starting a family.
It was a delightful reading.

I sit here with a big ole dreamy smile on my face and it's all because of Will Ryan... that man became one of my all time favorite book boyfriends in the first book in this series, Sweet Thing.

In book one Sweet Thing, we were introduced to Will and Mia's musical love story story about discovery, friendship, taking chances forgiveness and love. The writing was raw, rhythmic, poetic and I found myself continuously moved by the inspirational dialogue.

Mia and Will made it through Sweet Thing. But what happens now that they found their HEA?

Mia was my top 3 most annoying heroine ever (and the list is long!!) so it was lovely to read this in Will's POV. Mia was more tolerable here, I guess she couldnt have got any worse.

I think if you are a fan of book 1, this book is not to be missed. Will was still so swoon-worthy and it was the perfect conclusion. When the book ends the way it did, how can I rate it anything less than 5 stars?!

In Sweet Little Thing, Will and Mia have come a long way since they finally got together in Sweet Thing. I say finally because Mia put us through the emotional wringer as she struggled with letting of her baggage. But alas, she does come to her senses. Mia is a still a tough cookie but is more carefree and shines with happiness these days. Will is still my charming, quirky, sweet, and sexy man and he is even happier now that he and Mia are solid.

This is the extended epilogue that you never knew you needed. And in Will's POV...definitely a win-win!

It basically starts off where Sweet Thing ended and right into planning the big event with a lot of help from Jenny and Mia's Mom, of course.

First of all if you haven't read Sweet Thing, stop what you are doing, and go read it. It is one of my all time favorite books. I absolutely adored Will. I forgive Mia for being indecisive and judgmental of Will. She was trying to find herself and deal with the death of her father. I can not recommend Sweet Thing enough. It was just as amazing the second time I read it.

Aww... it's SO good to meet up again with old friends, and that's exactly how I felt once I picked up this novella.

Oh how I missed Will and Mia!
I missed their passion, hunger for life, loyalty to one another and their friends, and their incredible humor and bantering!

Sweet Little Thing is 1.5 after Sweet Thing. I loved Sweet Thing. I remember loving, Will so much that it was one of my favorites last year. That being said, I was really excited when I found out there was going to be a 1.5 book and it's in, Will's POV.

A perfect Novella for those needing another healthy, super sweet dose of Wilbur and Mia — especially after the angst of Sweet Thing. Renee's books will forever have a home on my book shelf.

“I was convinced we had lived twenty thousand lives, and in each one, we had found each other, like two tiny magnets in a drawer the size of the universe.”

which is exactly how I saw this book.

Returning to this verse, these character's is like snuggling in your favourite jumper, or putting on your fluffy slippers, or drinking a hot cuppa cocoa on a cold night, or banging out your favourite song... it's your favourite thing. It's a comfort, just like this is to me. I never want this verse to end. Renée writes magic, never stop, hun ;)

I received an advanced copy of Sweet Little Thing from the author. I'm humbled and now give you my honest opinion on this sweet little novella.

One thing that leaves many of us die hard readers with a romance book hangover is that often we see the struggle our main characters go through to get to each other. This can take place across many books or in some cases, just one. If it’s a great book, a first time author’s release, you want more and often you have no idea if there will be anything to co

Seamlessly beautiful, sensually breathtaking, I couldn’t stop reading the melody of words brilliantly crafted by one of my favorite authors, Renee Carlino. I fell in love with Sweet Thing and Renee sealed the deal with Sweet Little Thing. Her writing style is modern and fresh, reinvigorating my interest for a great love story. Renee’s methodical and solid plot structure fused with sound character development crescendos vividly causing me to crave the staccatos and ache

I was so excited to be given the chance to read Sweet Little Thing, and even happier to be back with My Will (yes, MY!). I absolutely loved Sweet Thing; it was a 5 star read for me, and My Will remains a favorite book boyfriend of mine.

Sweet Little Thing was everything I wanted it to be and more. I was happy with where Sweet Thing ended, but when you love a story that much, you're always left wanting more. I loved My Will and Mia's story, and wasn't ready to let go of them quite yet.

Mini review anche sul mio blog insieme a quella di "Sweet Thing":

Visto che ci sono vi presento anche la novella sequel, “Sweet Little Thing” che ho letto subito dopo, quando ho saputo che era narrata dal punto di vista di Will.

La vita è pura gioia per Mia e Will. Hanno un cucciolo, un loft a Brooklyn e un nuovo studio musicale di cui occuparsi. Sembra che le cose non possano andare meglio per questa talentuosa coppia quando la vita decide di

GUYS THIS BOOK! If I didn’t already love Will Ryan with all my heart, then this book would have sealed the deal. I’m pretty sure my heart had to grow to make room for me to love him more. This was the perfect little follow up to Sweet Thing.

I don’t know how I didn’t realize this sooner, but when I opened the book I was shocked to see it was from Will’s point of view. I then proceeded to do a happy dance because I adore his brain. It is so funny and

You can't control the weather just like you can't control the way others behave, but what you can control is how much love you give.

This novella picks up where Sweet Thing ends. Will is the main narrator, minus one chapter from Mia. He is even more adorable in this installment. This book will make you laugh, cry, and leave you feeling like true love can conquer all. If you loved Sweet Thing, I HIGHLY recommend reading this. It should be consider a thank you for all the angst/tortured we endu

Truly, with all honesty and sincerity, I can say that this novella is one "dancing and singing in the streets with joy" kind of reading experience. Simply fantastic!

Love is a “Sweet Thing” but all those “Sweet Little Thing(s)” are what make life grand!
