***3 "Too Sweet!!!" stars***

This book was an okay reading, but i didn't get over moon with it!!!

It had a cute storyline with two great heroes but the whole progress of the book was a little bit flat for me... and there was too much sweetness in there!!!
The heroine??? Sooo sweet....
The hero??? Also sweet....


Damn, i needed something more to rock my world!!!

Kylah was a sweet, low profiled, quiet, a little bit geeky girl who fell for one of her brother's friends who is taken... She is also very in

Ok so I kinda went a little crazy stalker after reading Sweetness and when I heard about Sweet Girl I HAD to get my grabby hands on it. But then I freaked out. What if it couldn’t live up to the standards I was expecting? What if Van wasn’t all that I thought he was going to be. What if him and Ky did something unforgivable?

I mean its Ky and Van. If you haven’t read the first one you absolutely could read this as a stand-alone, but having read the first one and having been introduced to Ky and

They met at her brother's apartment and they immediately are comfortable in each other's company,they starts a beautiful friendship that cannot be something more because Van has a girlfriend.
Will they let their love blossom?? Will her brother approve their relationship??

Sweet Girl by Sierra Hill was one of those books that brought our the school girl giggles in me. Whether it was Kylah’s innocence, Van’s sweet words of affirmation, or the story of how they came to be, Hill effortlessly captured my attention with her story. Sweet Girl was definitely worth the read.

Sweet Girl is the second book in The Sweetest Thing series. You don’t have to read the first book at all to fall in love and keep up with Van and Kylah’s story. Although, I have to say if Hill’

I think I enjoyed this one much more than the previous one.

Kylah is a sweet, shy and nerdy kind of girl. And Van is the basketball player on her brother's team.
Kylah has been in love with Van since she met him, but one little problem Van already has a girlfriend and he is devoted to her. But even though she knows he has a girlfriend she can't help her feelings for him.
Van and Kylah become great friends. And they can talk to each other about anything. Bu

Kylah Griffin has always lived in the shadow of her athletic, older brother, and her twin sister, with the larger than life personality, but somehow, she was never resentful. She owns being called the gawky geek, and continues to just be herself. But the sweet virgin is the one label that she's been trying to get rid of, with not much luck. That is, until she meets her brother's friend Van. They become good friends, as he sees her for her, and seems to like what he sees. Kylah doesn't want to be ...more

This is my second book by Sierra Hill.

This is my first in the sweetest thing series.


And it won't be my last from Sierra Hill. I'm a huge fan of friends to lovers.
I loved the storyline Sierra gave. The tenderness she gave their romance. The love they shared through sweet girl. The title says it all.

If you are a fan of fun, sweet romance this is for you.

Four stars.

Seriously from page one I liked where this story was going. I wanted Van and Kylah together like I want coffee in the morning. We learn Van has a girlfriend and it didn’t really sit well with me, but after a little bit I thought screw it, this could be a great one sided love story. Only to take that thought back a few pages later. Van and Kylah’s situation is realistic and I’m sure it happens more than we know.

Wow talk about drama, this book is filled with it. This drama though is oh so good. It makes this book hard to put down. It took me about a day to read it. I was pretty much hooked within the first few pages. I always thought van and his long time girlfriend would be the epic couple together. I'm glad they were not.

I quickly devoured this book as I have done wth the entire series. Sierra Hill continues with her theme is sugary sweetness between her leading characters Ky and Van and I LOVE it! These two are so perfect together because of their friendship, their bond is almost solid and you find yourself rooting for them from the beginning. I still can get over how perfect this read was. I read it in one day, made sure I had no plans because I could not put it down!

Sierra Hill is a new author and friend to me. I've read the first book of this series called Sweetness. That book was great and this book was better. The writing of each story gets better and the stories are hard for me to put down. If you haven't read this series you should! Sierra is awesome!

Kylah is the girl that everyone knows as the sweet, kind, shy girl who is overshadowed by her twin sister and older brother. She’s the friend and never the girlfriend, never even had a real date. But she’s ready for that to change…and she wants it to change with Van, her brothers friend. Someone she instantly clicks with but someone who views her as just the friend again…or maybe Van just wants to view her as a friend, maybe really he wants more as well, but with a girlfriend, big brothers and m ...more

Original review: A Novel Glimpse

Sweet Girl was my favorite book in this series. Cade’s younger sister Kylah falls for his teammate Van. Things start out with a forbidden crush for Kylah as Van has a long distance girlfriend. When Van is betrayed, Kylah has the opportunity to go for her man. It was just super cute and sweet. It reminded me of first love and all of the things that come with it. I adored both Kylah and Van.

I really liked Van and Kylah together and I liked the story a lot.

This book, however, (like book one in the series) had some editing issues that threw me out of the story. Worst offender? Plutonic. They were plutonic friends. Really? Plutonic? PLATONIC! *sigh*

Sweet Girl is just what you'd expect from Sierra Hill (especially if you've already read her first book in the series Sweetness). It's not only sweet, but a whole lot of sexy and fun.

Van, oh sweet Van. The hot basketball player who's not a player at all. He's sensitive and swoon worthy.
He bends down and kisses my temple –the same kiss that started this whole night. “I want you to stay.” He kisses me again, this time on the cheek. “In my bed.” Now he kisses the corner of my mouth. “With me. All

This book is a standalone in the Sweet Series. Each book is about a different set of characters, but you do see prior characters in here which is nice. What do you do when everyone sees you as just a Sweet Girl or Cade's little sister and are entering college still a virgin? Just ask Kylah.
Kylah and Kady are identical twins, but could not be more night and day. Where one is spunky and outgoing (Kady) the other is shy, more reserved and sweet (Kylah). Cade and Kylah put together give their paren

Sweet girl was an extremely sweet read that was about two people who became friends and soon became something more. I enjoy the way that the characters first became friends before they started a relationship because it showed the connection that the two characters clearly had. I enjoyed the way that the book really showed the emotions and struggles that both characters were experiencing in their lives.

In Sweet Girl, we learn more about Kylah Griffin, Cade Griffins younger sister who is also a twin.  Kylah is the shy, nerdy one of the twins and is extremely shy when it comes to boys.  Granted, she hangs

Before you start this one you will need to make sure you have plenty of time because it is a long book and once you get started you won’t want to put it down.
This wasn’t just a book it was a connection, a story that took its time to develop but that once it got its sneakers on, it was off and running.
I wasn’t sure that I could trust Van at first he seemed a little too worldly for Kylah. Friends with her brother, they were an unlikely alliance, they had a friendship that I wasn’t sure was heading

Sweet Girl was just that... a sweet romance that made my heart full and left me with a big smile on my face. This book was an easy and fast read that gave me butterflies and had me flipping the pages as fast as I can. This author took me on a journey that had love, loss, heartbreak, anger, sadness, pain, and lust.

Sweet Girl is about a girl and a guy. It alludes to them knowing each other a long time, but really this starts after about a week. There is attraction. One is a virgin, her. and one has a girlfriend, him. They meet through her brother, his teammate.

It is a little predictable. It does contain a lot of "thought" dialog that is dirtier thoughts essentially. It almost seems like it should be geared toward young adult with the maturity level of the main characters, but with the age, it is probably
