Cally… A sexy smile. Intense blue eyes. A goodness that makes him want to save me from these rumors when no one else would care. I didn't ask for a hero. William Bailey was never supposed to be anything more than a wish, a dream, an unrequited crush. Not for a girl like me--a girl whose fractured family has stolen her chance at a decent life.William… Since the death of my parents, I've always done what’s expected of me, what's "best" for me. Until Cally. The moment her haunted eyes meet mine, the fractured pieces of my heart feel whole again. I don’t just want to save her. I need her to save me.Stolen chances. Unbroken wishes. Two lonely souls grasping for hope in the darkness. **This novella takes place seven years before the events in WISH I MAY and shows William and Cally falling in love for the first time. It can be read before or after WISH I MAY or on its own.
****Contains sexual content and adult language and situations. Intended for mature readers.**
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.
**ARC Copy Review**
This was a good follow up for Cally & William from the Wish I May (New Hope) series.The story gives you more insight on these to characters you begin to love William more lol.
I thought the author did a good job letting you get to know these to characters more.Cally's Dad & Mom made me so mad.Also I think people out there reading this could relate in someone way about the hardship she went through.
End the in this story ended good I thought.I want to read more about these characters & the previous characters in I wish I May...Ooo especially Williams Friends & Thompson Twins.
