ARC Review: One Small Thing by Erin Watt

I come today with a very late, late ARC review. This book came out last year!?!?! I just now read it and am reviewing it. *Shame on you Crystal.* I am still glad I am at least reading again. *Yay for that.* Still pretty absent on my blog. *Opposite of Yay.* I need to do better! Juggling a baby, a house, youth group, a small business, bookstagram, everything seems a little hectic. But I love it? Any who, back to the review.

One Small Thing
Title: One Small Thing
Author: Erin Watt
Synopsis: Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to make—follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again. Title: One Small Thing

  • Erin Watt is brilliant! Everything they have ever written has been absolutely wonderful. This is why this duo is an auto-buy author for me.
  • I LOVED Beth and Chase. Their characters couldn’t have been more different but also the same? I feel like I seen so much of myself in Beth. I really connected with her. Chase is my baby. I want to hug him and show him all the love. If you don’t know by now I have a soft spot for tortured bad boys.
  • The plot was always full of twist and turns. That is a specialty of Erin Watt. They’re the masters of cliffhangers.
  • The ending was PERFECT. All the feels guys, all the feels.
  • I loved the family dynamic in this. It was raw. I could feel the pain, the heartbreak, the overbearing parents, the reasoning for them being overbearing, and the learning from experience.
  • It had less smut than their usual books. But that is a pro for me.


  • I am literally sitting here fumbling in my brain for any cons… I can’t think of any. I truly loved every aspect of this book. Even the things I didn’t like I ended up liking and understanding.

Rating: 5/5
