Mia Kelly is a twenty-five-year-old walking Gap ad who thinks she has life figured out when her father’s sudden death uproots her from slow-paced Ann Arbor to New York City’s bustling East Village. There she discovers her father’s spirit for life and the legacy he left behind with the help of an old café, a few eccentric friends, and one charming musician.
Will Ryan is good-looking, poetic, spontaneous, and on the brink of fame when he meets Mia, his new landlord, muse, and personal heartbreaker.
A story of self-discovery and friendship, Sweet Thing shines light on the power of loving and letting go.
Wow! What an absolutely beautiful story about how grief can affect your life and relationships. I read this book in one sitting, I literally couldn’t put it down! If you noticed I typically go for the more erotic stories, but this one just touched my heart. I could feel for Mia, and I fell deeply in love with Will.
Mia battles with herself, and her belief of who she should really be, what she wants in her life, and the man she thinks is best for her. Mia’s parents always gave her unconditional love. Her father “Pops” was a musician with an old soul, he loved her and guided her with music and values based on respect. Mia’s mother was more grounded, she was business minded, and her stepfather was a lawyer, they guided her in values of money, and responsibility. She had all the core values, but it was more of a war of her free and easy going musical part, and her business and responsible side of her raging in her mind. When her father dies it forces her to face many truths and she goes back to New York City to decide her next steps and continues her father’s business.
