Description

“Everything I want in romance. Angsty, emotional, forbidden and HOT! Abbi Glines at her best!” – Colleen Hoover,  #1 New York Times bestselling author 

"Abbi Glines ratchets up the heat in Sweet Little Thing, taking her signature blend of page-turning sexual tension and honest romantic portrayals to the next level. I wish I could hit rewind and read the book again for the first time!" 
— Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of The Lovely Reckless

"No one packs as much prickly angst and heartwarming drama on each and every single page the way Abbi Glines does. Fans of the Rosemary Beach series are going to LOSE THEIR MINDS when they meet these characters!"
— Natasha is a Book Junkie 

"The kind of book you can't read fast enough—a forbidden love story that's deliciously tense with an ending that left me clamoring for more."
— Vilma Iris

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 in charge. This isn’t her home at all. Her late husband left her with nothing. It all belongs to their son who doesn’t seem to like his mother at all. 

Jasper Van Allan doesn’t know why his mother has hired a young gorgeous blonde to take care of the house and almost lets her go before he finds out the truth. 

Realizing there’s more to Beulah than a stunning face, he keeps finding reasons to be near her all the time. It’s all falling into place, it all begins to make sense . . . until the real lies, the dark secrets, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the Van Allan closet. Twisted truths that will send Beulah running . . .
… 

"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."
— Danielle Lagasse

“Sweet little things is a perfect blend of Romance and Drama. A book that throws curveballs unexpectedly, this book will have you addicted. You'll be begging Abbi Glines for your next fix.”
— Vicci Kaighan

  • Rich spoiled entitled characters...Beulah being Beulah

    In Sweet Little Thing, Beulah and Heidi lost their mother at the age of nineteen leaving them to fend for themselves. Except Pamela left a note for Portia asking her to take care of them. Portia allowed Beulah to work as a live in housekeeper while sending Heidi to live in Spanish Moss. It’s a character driven story, yet none of the characters are appealing. I can’t find one redeemable quality to like in any one of these characters. The way Abbi described these characters wasn’t alluring. Abbi spent too much time judging Jasper’s character and the characteristics of people with money. With a story driven by characters, Abbi analyzed each ones behavior and actions dissecting them like a project. Every character introduction was met with judgement and preconceived assumptions. I didn’t like the negative descriptions used to identify these characters. The writing style is not what I remember from when I read the Too Far series. I’m not connecting with the writing style, the characters, or the plot. Abbi spent a great deal of time delving into character assessments by distinguishing the lifestyles of the wealthy spoiled snobs to that of Beulah. It’s clear Beulah is poor while Jasper is rich. To me it was so unimportant to mention how poor and plain Beulah’s character was. Abbi tried too hard to find ways to make Beulah feel below the other characters which I wasn’t fond of. Instead I felt Beulah was incompetent with her lack of skills and sources to manage her sisters care. The more I read about Beulah’s character the more I was convinced she’s not very resourceful. Rather than speak up and correct common situations afraid to come off as difficult or confrontational she nods in agreement making her appear helpless. If she made better choices she wouldn’t need protecting.Beulah’s character was pliable and too agreeable.I don’t get it. I’m not buying into this crap that Beulah is just Beulah as if people of her nature are few and far between because she wasn’t raised with money. The plot consisted of three concerns: Heidi’s welfare, Beulah working for Heidi’s benefit, and Portia’s secret.The story had some concerning plot holes: Portia leaving the house unexpectedly, Stone staying in the pool house, and Jasper sharing a house with his mother.The impending secret about Portia was a curiosity that got put on the back burner for no other reason than to provide shock value at the perfect opportunity. Abbi addressed too many elements that didn’t mesh well. I’m not interested in a possible romance between these two characters.Whatever connection Abbi was working on between Jasper and Beulah felt forced. This was another element that was used to provide shock value as a means to cross the forbidden lines. Jasper and Stone behaved like spoiled entitled characters who had no problems spending the money they inherited from their fathers, yet pouted about the responsibilities associated with maintaining the business. Jaspers character was shallow minded. His character continued to spin this web how all his friends grew up the same way he did, so it was acceptable to behave like snobs.

    I am quite disgusted at the ending of this book. I loved the whole story until the last page. I know authors want to give us a plot twist but it’s actually disturbing that she decided to make two people who fell in love first cousins...

    How can a publisher put out a book with so many errors? Very distracting and annoying….but besides that age difference between Beulah and Jasper doesn’t make any sense! Do the math! The ending is ridiculous!!!!
  • Great start

    I was going to give it 1 star because of the unbelievable amount of errors I came across. I decided to give it 3 because it was an easy read and couldn’t put it down. I knew how it was going to end right away though!
  • Left me wanting more

    I really enjoyed this book. It was written like her others, but at the same time - different. This really should not have been 3 books. It would have been sufficient with being 1 book or at the most 2, and not to be waiting weeks apart for each short novel to be released. I get the whole keeping people excited and making a series when the books are longer, but this is way too short to be 3 books. Even on my iPhone it was only 300 phone pages. None the less, I still loved the book (apart from being so short and made into 3 books instead of 1.)
