The day her mother passed away, Beulah was only given a name. That was it. No other explanation.

Portia Van Allan was not someone Beulah could believe her mother ever knew. Wealthy, self-absorbed and other than the fact Portia was supplying special care for Beulah’s sister, Portia was cruel.

The day Portia’s son returns home for the summer, Beulah discovers that Portia isn’t

Warning: spoilers abound.

I was skeptical about reading this to start, because, well, the author touted it as a fresh, new idea with a whole new cast of characters. Better, even, than Rush and Blaire. But upon the release of the first two excerpts, it became obvious—at least to me—that this wasn’t so much a fresh, new idea and was, instead, simply more of the same. More specifically, a regurgitated version of Fallen Too Far. And now that I’ve read the book in its entirety, I stand by my original

You might want to get some popcorn and drinks when you're going to read this book. It's filled with drama and annoying characters. The plot was recycled from Fallen Too Far (Rosemary Beach series) and Breathe (Sea Breeze series). It tested my patience especially with Portia Van Allan. THAT CRUEL LYING WITCH 🙄😒🔪 I don't buy her secrets in the end. She's manipulating everyone with her lies. I cannot. 🙄🙄🙄 ...more

After stalking Abbi Glines’ books for years, I finally read one! WHOA ... what a WILD RIDE was Sweet Little Thing!!! The delicious sexual tension, the angst that bled through the book, the taste of forbidden ... I DEVOURED every bit!!!

Oh Jasper! Hot. Sinfully sexy. All alpha. The hero is one whom I wanted to smack some sense into at the beginning but wanted to wrap him in a huge hug at the end.

She was impossible not to love. How was I supposed to fight this?

Beulah. Beautiful. Sweet.

Ok There are slight but very slight differances but I still see the Fallen Too Far story in this book ... so yeah I still stick to my original opinion!!

Well sounds ALOT like Fallen Too Far to me ..... not a fresh new idea ...

This is the first book I've read by Abbi Glines, an author that is recommended by many booktubers, but and I can't really say I'm excited about it.

The plot was just ok for the most part, but I started really liking the book after about 75%. I liked that the heroine is a fighter, she works non-stop just so that she can provide her sister with Down Syndrome a safe place to live and socialize. She's completely selfless and even when something difficult happens she tries to deal with it with maturit

This author was one of my favorite, however she has disappointed me with her last few books. This is just a rewrite of Fallen series with a twist. I will not be reading Glines books anymore. BTW please hire a good editor!

It was a long time since I read a book by Abbi Glines, I was a little bit nervous!I really enjoyed Sweet Little Thing!It was fast paced you could easily connect with the characters , it has angst and at the beginning until a big part of the book I tried to guess who will keep Beulah's interest!There is a twist and it ends with a cliffhanger and it took me by surprise!

The characters were likable and I can't wait to see what will happen next!Overall, it was a great story, not my favorite f

this is such a harsh rating but i genuinely felt nothing while reading this book…i really wanted to like it because i loved abbi glines fallen too far series, but the characters in this one (besides stone) just did not intrigue me whatsoever. the plot was overall just “eh” for me, but it was a really easy read in the end.

Whoa. I blew through this book in less than 24 hours (with work in between of course) and after that ending, holy moly I need the next one - like, right now!

I fell into this book and the characters really easily. Beulah is a really easy character to like and to love. Jasper not so much right away, but at the same time, I expected that he would thaw out.

Stone really intrigues me and Portia, well I knew she was hiding something and I had a feeling it was along the lines of what she reve

This book took my by surprise in a good way. I didn't expect to like it as much and for a pretty light, mindless read, the story held my attention throughout the book.

I really felt that, for a short story, this book gave me a lot of feels and I felt that there was a lot of depth and an endearing quality to it.

The fact that I absolutely loved the main character, Beulah, is an understatement. She is very selfless, hardworking and loves her sister with a passion.

I love the twists and turns at th

Starting this review with the fact that I adore Abbi Glines and her books. This one though missed the mark for me. I will read book two when it comes out so that was very well played. LOL but the connection and who was who, what was what. missed the mark for me. I wasn't even sure who the lead male was at first...I felt it was reminiscent of book one in the Sea Breeze series and Rush and Blaire...but the difference was my connection to the characters. I did read it very quickly and I do want to ...more

This is one of the worst books I have ever read! I've read a few books by Abbi Glines and they're pretty good, but this book was really bad. The story-line seemed fake and forced, no build up. I hated all the characters, except Hedi. They didn't make any sense. This whole book was a joke and to make things worse, there was a cliffhanger in the end! ...more

Wow, utterly amazing! I completely lost track of time while I devoured this book, I couldn’t put it down from beginning to end!! My only regret is not having purchased the other two books sooner, so I could dive in without pause .

While both characters Jasper and Beulah were easy to relate to, I really enjoyed reading from Beulah’s POV. She was such a delight to read from and her relationship with her sister is so beautiful. I loved getting to read the shared moments they had together throughout

I swear Abbi Glines' books read like soap operas. I'm not a major fan, but the blurbs oftentimes catch my interest and I see all the five-star reviews that rave about how fantastic a read is promised. Most times, like now, I'm intrigued - yet disappointed. Luckily, this was an Amazon freebie. I admit that I'll continue on to the next book in this new-to-me-series. I'm caught in a web of who is good and who is evil. And I'm drawn to one particular dark and bad boy. I think there's more to come in ...more

Abbi Glines is the queen of steamy, modern day fairytales with a twist. Sweet Little Thing will keep you guessing (and needing more) from the very first word all the way to the very last.

Okay just kidding I read it on my friends phone because well I couldn't help myself. I don't think I'll be reading anymore of AG's books-- which sucks, because she used to be a favourite author. Totally killing my last rant with this rant BUT I JUST NEED TO LET ALL THIS GO SOMEWHERE. I DON'T CARE IF NO ONE READS THIS, because I probably will in the future and laugh and then delete it because of how salty I am about to sound.

A lot of AG's plots and characters are starting to sound the same.

I have been a huge fan of Abbi Glines ever since discovering her writing back in March 2012. I think that I spent a good majority of that year falling in love with story after story from her collections! I read EVERY single one of her previous releases and began anticipating her next one even before turning to the last page. The second her newest book would release I couldn't one-click it fast enough. For the next five years the pattern continued

The only complaint I really have is, I should have waited for the next two came out before I started reading this one.

The book definitely ends on a cliff hanger, but if you have read Abbi's books before you already knew she did that with her series. Beulah is a very special person, not only because she is as nice as she can be but she is also so selfless. I loved seeing the relationship she had with Heidi. I also liked that she was innocent, not because she wasn't aware but because she had be
