I grew up wishing on stars.

My father taught me to believe…in destiny, in magic, in happily ever after. Dreams were my scripture and the starry night sky was my temple. Then Mom stopped believing, left him, and took us with her. At the age of sixteen, I cashed in my dreams to pay the rent, pawned my destiny to keep my sisters together.

Now, seven years later, I’m returning home, grieving the death of my mother, and settling my sisters back into the life Mom threw away. I never intended to stay. I don’t want to deal with my father, who is so invested in the spiritual world he forgets the physical. I don’t want to face William Bailey, whose eyes remind me of the girl I was, the things I’ve done, and the future I lost.
This would all be easier if Will hated me. As it is, I have to hold my secrets close so they won’t hurt him more than they’ve already hurt me. But he wants to be in my life. He wants what I can’t bring myself to confess I sold. He wants me.

I find myself looking to my stars again...wondering if I dare one more wish.

REVIEWED BY KELLY

*I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review*

*Taps mic and clears throat*
YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE

I have a new boy crush and his name is William Bailey.
I think he might just possibly be the most perfect man on Earth.

OK, now on with my review!
This is only the second book by Lexi Ryan that I have read and already I. AM. SOLD. She is going to be on my auto-read-author list from this point on. I love her writing, I love her characters, I love that they are broken but not beyond redemption, I LOVE how f***ing hot her male characters are, I love how strong her female characters are, and I LOVE how her stories make me feel – hot and bothered one minute, crying tears of joy another, and with rising anxiety levels somewhere in the middle.

Wish I May was just the perfect book for me and how I was feeling right before I read it. In all honesty I was in a HUGE reading slump. Nothing was holding my attention and I was feeling pretty fed up with reading. Then I remembered I had Wish I May ready and waiting for me on my Kindle and I thought back to how much I loved Unbreak Me. I hoped for big things from Wish I May and I got them!

Cally and William were each other’s first loves. Cally’s crappy family life ripped them apart and Cally’s life went from bad to worse, on a devastating downward spiral, brought on by her mum’s drug addiction.

Fast forward 7 years and Cally is back in New Hope, after her mum’s death, with her 2 younger sisters in tow and trying to track down her dad. She gets lost looking for him and who should she bump in to? Yep, her first love, William *the most perfect man on Earth* Bailey.

To say there was unfinished business and unresolved feelings is an understatement – Cally and William were only separated through circumstances, not through a conscious choice from either of them. The sexual tension when they met up again was palpable and it was H.O.T!

This is a story I don’t want to say too much about plot-wise, after all, no one likes a spoiler, do they? You should definitely just read it; I think you might just love it! There is so much going on and it will leave you feeling SO. MANY, different emotions. This is definitely a book that I will read again.

For those of you who haven’t read Unbreak Me, the first book in the New Hope series, you don’t need to worry – you can read Wish I May as a standalone, although why would you want to miss out on the equally-as-amazing Unbreak Me? If you want to check out my review of Unbreak Me you can find it HERE.

If you have read Unbreak Me then you’ll be pleased to hear that a lot of the characters from that book are in Wish I May. I am definitely ready for New Hope #3 and I can’t wait to find out whose story it is after getting to know them better in Wish I May.

About Lexi Ryan

Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I'm not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids--a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I'm feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I'm really, really slow) or do yoga. Don't worry, I'm always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.

    I really loved Unbreak Me and I can’t wait to read Wish I May! Didn’t really like William in Unbreak Me but from your review, I think I might have a change of heart! 😉

      I was the same in Unbreak Me with William. I really didn’t know if I liked him or not. I LOVED him in Wish I May though – he definitely redeemed himself!
