Sweet Girl by Sierra Hill REVIEW


I’ve always lived in the shadows of my athletic older brother and my charismatic twin sister. And that’s okay by me. I don’t mind being known as the shy wallflower. The gawky geek. The sweet, virginal girl. Well, that’s one label I’ve been trying to shed since starting my freshman year in college this year. The thing is, no one’s ever looked twice at me.

Until I met Van Gerard.

He notices me. He looks at me and seems to like what he sees. He understands and listens to me. He’s become a great friend. The problem is, I don’t want him as a friend.

I want more.

But my brother - along with a state line between us, and oh yeah, Van’s long-time girlfriend - are just a few complications getting in the way of what I want.


I thought my senior year in college would be the best time of my life. I’m a starter on a Pac-12 basketball team, set to graduate with a degree in Finance. I have a girlfriend whom I’d planned to start a future with. I thought my life was already mapped out.

But then the bottom dropped out with a confession I never expected to hear, from the girl I thought I knew.

I thought wrong.

Luckily for me, Kylah Griffin was there to break my fall. She’s the best thing this year has given me. She’s helped me through a devastating blow that could have sent me reeling.

I know she wants more, but I’m not sure I can give it. Now that I’ve been burned, I don’t think I can go there again. Kylah’s not a hook-up, and she’s definitely not a rebound. She’s a sweet girl who deserves more than to be friend-zoned.

If only things weren’t so complicated.
This was a good book. The whole I want my brothers best friend but can't have him/I want my friends little sister but can't have her kind of story.  I loved both the characters in this book. Kylah and Van... 
I think this book was a lot better than I anticipated. Kylah and all her innocence, Van and his oh so sweetness, and I mean really they couldn't have come together in a better way. 
I really enjoyed how sweet this book ended up being and still being a hot read. And I love that in the end there are no hard feeling toward him <3 THANK YOU for not ruining him as a totally sweet and lovable character. 
Now the only thing I didn't like about this book is that it is very fast paced, I would have liked to see it slow up a bit. I would not have argued for it to have been expanded on a bit and be a little longer. Maybe it is just me though.
