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.
Lexi Ryan takes a character (William Bailey) from Unbreak Me that I really did not care anything about and has made me fall in love with him. I was not sure I even wanted to read William’s story, but I am so glad that I did because he now rates in my top 5 hottest and most sexiest leading men. William Bailey is an artist and professor that has struck out on love one too many times. Cally Fisher was William’s first love and ruined him for all other women. Is it Destiny or just a coincidence that Cally’s GPS malfunctions directly in front of a hot, sweaty, and sinfully sexy William Bailey while he is on his morning run?
“Can I help you?” The Adonis from my past narrows his eyes. “Cally?”
Cally Fisher has had a really rough life and has had to make some very difficult decisions in order to take care of her mother and sisters. After the passing of her mother she comes back home to New Hope to settle her sisters in with their father and try to make a better life for them. The last person she expects to run into is the one man that still owns a piece of her heart.
“After seven years. After the lamest breakup in the history of breakups. After breaking his heart and dismissing my own, I’m still very much his.”
Lexi Ryan weaves a wonderful tale of two lovers and how they are able to look past so much personal baggage each of them holds onto, and find unselfish, and unconditional love. She kept me in knots as to whether or not I believed that Cally would only cause William tragedy or if she was the remedy for his broken heart.
If you like a strong leading man that puts his heart on the line for one last chance at love with the woman who has always owned his heart then you will love Wish I May by Lexi Ryan. I laughed, I cried, and I stayed up all night to finish this one.
