One Small Thing Reviews
This was an interesting Erin Watt book. I think maybe it’s the first one I’ve read where they’ve tried to tackle a pretty serious subject and the book stays pretty “down” the whole time, which is a bit different from the feel of “When it’s Real” and it’s pop star feel or “The Royals” and their partying and rich boy lifestyle. In this one, Lizzie-turned-Beth (which, I have to say, is a name change that gets a little old the 200th time it’s brought up—and all that annoyance for what???) lost her s ...more

Beth can't get the boy from the party out of her mind, he's a bright spot in her dim, prison-like life with overprotective parents. She thinks she's hit the jackpot when she arrives to school and finds Chase is the new student, except people can't stop pulling her away from him and whispering behind his back. Discovering Chase has ties to the night her sister died should stop anything from moving forward, but Beth can't shake the feeling she has an ...more
I think this writing duo is on to something... I know a majority of their following is really into their darker, more erotic romance (I haven't read the royals series yet), but there's something REALLY special about their standalone contemporary romances. They definitely feel YA (as they should), but not in a cheesy, obnoxious way. This is my second standalone romance from them and both have tackled some deep, thought provoking themes. Highly recommended for readers wanting a nice balance of dar ...more
One Small Thing
Wow, all I can say is, this story blew me away! Keep the tissues close by as you are reading ONE SMALL THING. The author duo of Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick will have your emotions all over the place. Once I started reading, it was very hard to stop! The twists and turns made it impossible to put down, as I had to know what was going to happen to Beth after so much heartache! What an awesome story. All of the characters feel genuine and relatable and put your emotions o ...more
3.75 out of 5 Stars!
Full Disclosure: Erin Watt is an auto-buy author for me. I am absolute trash for this duo. So it should serve as no surprise that when I was approved for an ARC of their newest novel I dropped all of my responsibilities to dive into their newest work.
As with their previous novels, I practically devoured this in one sitting. Unlike the Royals series there are no rage-inducing cliffhangers here, but a nice (somewhat rushed) ending. And unlike When It's Real this was a much hea ...more
3.5 “Grief and Forbidden Romance” Stars
I went into this knowing almost nothing about it, except for the fact that it was written by Erin Watt. It was almost enough to make me love it. Almost.
Unlike it happened with Paper Princess, I had a really hard time connecting with the main character here. Beth (Lizzie, or whatever the heck is her name) was the complete opposite of Ella from PP, who was strong and mature and didn’t let people walk over her.
Beth, on her turn, got on my nerves with her juven ...more
