Review and Giveaway: Sweet Thing by J.A. Huss

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

What It’s About:

I knew how old she was.
I just didn’t care.

Aria Amherst lied about her age the first night we met.
But when I kissed her… I knew exactly how old she was.
And once I kissed her…  I needed more.
I wanted all of her. I wanted everything she wasn’t really offering.
Until I found out that her father was making a deal with my business partner.
Then I wanted her more.
Ryker North blew into my life like a wall of hot, tattooed muscle.
And did I mention he’s a drummer?
And a businessman?
And thirty-five years old?
And my father is going to kill me when he finds out I’m dating his new client?
But take my word on this. He’s worth every risk I’m taking.

My Thoughts:

Sweet Thing by J.A. Huss is an extra-spicy, sweet romantic novella.  The story features Aria, a just-turned eighteen year old on spring break, and Ryker, a thirty-five year old real estate developer.

The story set up is fun and the plot is well-paced.  As readers can expect with a J.A. Huss novel, the writing quality is excellent.  Ms. Huss’ talent allows her to seamlessly transition between genres as evidenced by her recent sweet romance stories. Even though this is a sweet romance, there is quite a bit of heat!  The sexual escapades were more advanced than I thought most naive 18 year old girls would go for.  However, just when I started to feel Ryker’s attraction was a little creepy, his ethics and inner angst kick in.  His internal dialogue/debate changed my opinion about the storyline.  I love the compassion and caring he showed Aria, and I melted at his monologue about family and his respect for her parents.  While I personally can’t imagine a romantic relationship with someone seventeen years older, love is love, and Aria and Ryker proved their relationship was much more than a sexual attraction.

Ms. Huss has peppered her story with meaningful messages about love, family and friendship that will stick with readers long after finishing the book. Heavy on the sex and no real angst, Sweet Thing by J.A. Huss is a deliciously sweet treat!
