Sweet Little Thing
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 ...more
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 ...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. ...more
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...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
If you don't like cliffies - stear the hell clear until all 3 are released (which is only 2 months away so cool your jets!).
Don't read this unless you have FINISHED the first book:
(view spoiler)[ Ummmmmmm FIRST COUSINS?! Scandalous! However, I am slightly happy about it. No, i'm not a freak, I just like the idea of her with Stone (Winston) better than Jasper. Can't wait for book two in 4 weeks!!! (hide spoiler)] ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
