    An Emotional Story About Forgiveness

    I'm not sure if it was the cute cover or the fact that this was categorized as a YA novel, but I really wasn't expecting this to be such an emotional book. It isn't a light and fluffy read, but rather one that will have you questioning and thinking about it long after you finish. I'm glad I went into this book blind and I actually wish the blurb didn't give away the main conflict of the story. It made the revelation so much more devastating. The weight and impact of it more profound. One Small Thing isn't just a contemporary romance. It's a story of forgiveness, acceptance, grief, and love. It shows how people handle tragedy, for better or for worse, and the lasting ripples these events cause. I think what captivated me most about the book was that I truly had no idea how a story like this would end. Chase and Beth undergo a huge transformation from the people they once were, the people we meet, and the people they (hopefully) become. Yes, there were times I was frustrated with each of them as well as the people in their lives, but more often than not, I felt their pain, confusion, and anguish over these seemingly impossible obstacles. The secondary characters, though predictable, were perfectly over the top and succeeded in earning my anger and disgust. Mr. Jones and Jeff were quite the pair throughout the book. I honestly only really liked Chase and Beth (though Beth's mom grew on me). Things did wrap up quickly at the end, but I felt satisfied with the outcome and the maturity our characters displayed. I especially loved how the title tied into the book so wonderfully and that the ending left the reader with a sense of hope and maybe feeling just a little bit lighter. 4.5 stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    One Small Thing

    One Small Thing really tugged on my heartstrings, Erin Watt's books usually pull emotions out of me but not this particular one. I loved that, that it drew such an emotional response from me. It didn't make me cry but I was emotionally invested in the story especially the hero's pain. It didn't matter that I'd figured out where it was going and what would happen I was in, I was all in. That fact did not alter my overall enjoyment of it at all, I enjoyed it quite a lot. I love forbidden stories. I loved that this story had that element and that it was such an untenable situation yet it worked. I definitely recommend this book to those who love forbidden stories that are heartfelt.

    One Small Thing, 5 Stars

    If you ever decide to read only one Erin Watt book, One Small Thing should be this book. Beth Jones is a senior at highschool and her life isn´t a easy one. Her parents shelter her and suffocate her at the same time. Their restrictions and mistrust hurts Beth deeply. And then there´s Chase Donelly, the new boy at school, the bad boy she should stay far away from. But they´re like magnets and she can´t stay away from him. Chase made mistakes in the past, mistakes that changed his and others lives for forever, and Beth is one of them. There are only a couple of authors I can rely on to write stories that speak to me every single time. Erin Watt is one of them. I still remember reading The Royals Series and how I was blown away. I was sucked in and instantly a fan of the author’s writing. That was the beginning, I haven’t regretted it once. I love every single story of Erin Watt and they´re one of my few one click authors. Their characters "speak " to me and I can live with them in their world. One Small Thing is a heart wrenching, tear jerking, page turning story that gutted me and left me in a major book hangover. I highly recommend One Small Thing and wish I could give more than 5 stars.

    I really loved this one!

    4.5 Stars Review by Amy Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog One Small Thing was such a touching standalone story that filled me with a gamut of emotions and left me with a smile on my face. Erin Watt did such a stellar job of building an amazing connection with the characters that I didn’t want it to end. This was my first book by Watt and I look forward to reading more. Beth’s life has never been the same since her sister was killed in an accident three years earlier. Intent on finding a little fun before she starts her senior year, she sneaks out to a party and finds herself smitten with Chase, a quiet guy she finds floating in and out of the party like a ghost. After spending a memorable evening together, they go their separate ways. Beth shows up the first day of her senior year and finds Chase attending the same school, but she soon finds out he is not who she thought he was. The connection they had still plays in her mind though, and she struggles to decide if she can forgive his sordid past and start a relationship with him. It doesn’t take Beth long to realize her decision affects so many more people than just her and Chase, and the pain and emotion that she struggles with while she balances her family, her thoughts, and her heart becomes too much. What choice with Beth make? Will she follow her heart or sacrifice her happiness to keep the peace? These teens found themselves in such a difficult situation and they had to make some very adult decisions. Meanwhile the adults around them were making juvenile and shallow judgments. It was such an interesting concept and I am so glad I had a chance to read this. The pacing was perfect, the characters were entertaining and the emotions were raw. There is nothing like a great love story that overcomes all odds to be together. I really loved this one!
