"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 cafe, 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. A "heartbreaking and romantic" debut (Aestas Book Blog), Sweet Thing explores the intensity and complexities of first love and self-discovery"-- Provided by publisher.
"A contemporary new adult romance novel about a woman who runs a cafe in New York's East Village and her romance with an up and coming musician"-- Provided by publisher.

Booooyyy what a huge disappointment…Thank GOD I read Before We Were Strangers by the same author first. That book was really one of my top favorites.
I would've really have missed out if I had read this book first
Most of my discontent is garnered around the protagonist, MIA.. she was ANNOYING. For most of the book, she spends leading on a very nice guy who was into her, resisting a feeling that she was having for him even though he was NOT a bad guy, was NOT treating her bad at all..was being nothing but super sweet and supportive to her. They shared a lot of common via their love of music..
So for the majority of the book, it’s pretty much revolved around her being undecided and turning him down for no reason at all except that she is just playing hardball and didn’t want to date him essentially because he is not financially settled..
That just made me dislike the protagonist so much more.
This book went on for too long… at the final 2 chapters is when finally you see some action.
I had to skim the middle chapters because nothing exciting happened just her denying her feelings for the guy.

I stayed up until 3:00 AM reading this book because I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen with these characters! They were sometimes frustratingly realistic which added to the suspense of whether or not it was going to be a happy ending or not. I'm not telling...
