A USA TODAY bestselling contemporary romance about the complexities of love and self-discovery in the early post-college years.
Mia Kelly thinks she has it all figured out. She’s an Ivy League graduate, a classically trained pianist, and the beloved daughter of a sensible mother and offbeat father. Yet Mia has been stalling since graduation, torn between putting her business degree to use and exploring music, her true love.
When her father unexpectedly dies, she decides to pick up the threads of his life while she figures out her own. Uprooting herself from Ann Arbor to New York City, Mia takes over her father’s café, a treasured neighborhood institution that plays host to undiscovered musicians and artists. She’s denied herself the thrilling and unpredictable life of a musician, but a chance encounter with Will, a sweet, gorgeous, and charming guitarist, offers her a glimpse of what could be. When Will becomes her friend and then her roommate, she does everything in her power to suppress her passions—for him, for music—but her father’s legacy slowly opens her heart to the possibility of something more.

There's so many things I could say about this wonderful book and the author but I'll try to keep it short. I've had Sweet Thing on my iBooks shelf for months and decided to finally read it today. Needless to say I finished it in a couple of hours and now I'm completely in love with it. Why did I wait so long? I look forward to read more books about the author and also the sequel. This book took me on a heartbreaking amazing roller coaster journey that made me realize many things about life and myself. I definitely recommend reading this book and more from the author.
Sweet Thing, you make my heart sing!
I found this gem quite by chance and I have to say that I will definitely read it again! Will and Mia's story is everything I love in a contemporary romance!!! I enjoyed the setting and Ms. Carlino's choice in music and I wouldn't mind seeing a movie adaptation! This book tugged at my heart and wouldn't let go!!!
