book in the standalone college sports series, The Sweetest Thing.
Each book features a different couple and their own unique story.
This my first introduction to this author and Sweet Little Lies is a sweet romance of difficult realities, cultural divides, and how love can overcome it all.
Micaela Reyes is a Mexican immigrant from a working class family desperately trying to carve out her little piece of The American Dream. Lance Britton is the college basketball star who has it all. They seem to be so different and separated by so many things: culture, social status, and ethnicity and yet ultimately that doesn’t seem to matter to their hearts.
My thoughts: Sierra Hill’s writing is beautiful. Lance is a great hero and his struggle made my heart hurt and love him at the same time. I can appreciate when a book attempts to shed a small light on the subject of immigration, but I also found the story, characters, and subject mater to at times come off as stereotypical caricatures instead of real people and their struggle they’re meant to represent. I enjoyed the love story, but found myself rolling my eyes at times at some of the inner monologues Mica has and the overdramatizing of the cultural divide between she and Lance. Still, Sierra Hill’s writing and the overall love story managed to keep my attention and rooting for the couple’s HEA.
erotic contemporary romance in 2014, Sierra’s found her creative passion,
writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain, who constantly
shout for their own love stories to be told. Sierra is a sucker for cheap
accessories, enjoys traveling to see live concerts, and loves good seafood.
Sierra resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of twenty years and
her long-haired, German Shepherd. She is currently working on her next HEA.
