Blog Tour + Review/Giveaway: Sweet Nothing by Mia Henry


Elliot Halloran is running away. Away from her privileged Manhattan upbringing and a promising future at business school. Away from her family, which plummeted from A-list to disgraced after her criminal father’s atrocities were exposed. Despite the guilt Elliot feels for abandoning her family, she has no choice. She is too recognizable to live life as the person she has always been. So when an old family friend offers her a position as an economics instructor at Miami’s elite Alford Academy, Elliot jumps at the chance to distance herself from her past. She cuts her hair, changes her name, and vows never to speak of her old life again.

Keeping her identity hidden is harder than Elliot expected, especially with a roommate who seems to be on the verge of uncovering her true identity. As she fumbles through the opening chapters of her new life, Elliot encounters an entirely unforeseen obstacle: photography instructor Luke Poulos. Luke is sensitive and spontaneous. An art lover. Smart. Everything Elliot has ever wanted. Luke and Elliot’s connection deepens when she learns that he lost his parents in a car accident when he was a teenager. Like Elliot, Luke understands that life can shatter in an instant.

Elliot knows that a relationship with Luke is impossible; that he would never love her if he knew the details of her past. But as she struggles with whether to open herself to love or keep her true self locked away, Elliot learns that she’s not the only one with secrets.

Our Review:
3.5 Stars
Elle has made some decisions that broke her family apart. She leaves New York and moves to Miami. She is determined to start all over where nobody knows who she is and what she has done. With the help of an old family friend she gets a job as an economic teacher in a private school where she meets Luke Poulos.
Initially Elle meets Luke at the faculty party. There is an immediate attraction between them. She assumed he was the musician. The next day she finds out that he is not only a teacher by he is also assigned as her mentor. They seem to hit it off right away but Elle is hesitant and refuses to let him get too close. She is afraid he might find out who she really is. He never puts any pressure on her to divulge more that she is willing to give. He is patient, sweet, and very understanding while trying to break down the walls that she has put up. But Luke has secrets of his own. Unfortunately Elle gets a glimpse of it before he is able to explain it to her.

Sweet nothing is a short and easy read. I felt that the story was rushed. It made Elle and Luke’s relationship progress too fast making it hard to form any type of connection with their characters. I have to admit that Luke’s character has potential to become our next fictional boyfriend. I’m looking forward to what Mia has in store for her book since she sort of left us with a cliffhanger.
