Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway: Wish I may By Lexi Ryan


WISH I MAY by Lexi Ryan
October 2013


BOOK SUMMARY:
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.

My Review
4.5 NEVER SAY GOODBYE STARS!!

Lets me start off by telling your that I haven't had a chance to read the first book so I didn't know much about what happened previously and about the other characters. Even with that I still think Will is the best character and I'm sure I would have loved him in book 1 too!

He is just such an awesome, loving character and damn so many times I was like Cally piss off move the hell back let me comfort him awww Will! And other times I was screaming at Cally about breaking his heart.Why do you have to hurt him huh?! He can be happy..with me ;)

"I want you to always believe you deserve whatever you can wish for, Cally. As long as you'll let me, I'll make your wishes come true."


William Bailey is an artist and professor and his love life hasn't ever gone as planned.Things have gotten that bad that he is even talking to someone his grandma has set him up with. But everything changes when someone from his past gets lost and somehow ends up outside his house.

Cally Fisher has had it rough since day one with a mother who is a druggy and a father who is absorbed with his spiritual journey the responsibility of bringing up her 2 sisters lands on her.But now her mother is dead and she is back to the place she loved to drop her sisters off with her dad. It all changes when the one person she hoped to avoid finds her lost.

"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."

Will and Cally loved each other they were always together until Cally had to leave due to her moms insistence. Moving away and looking after everyone with no help was a pain and Cally suffered an awful lot to keep food on the table, to look after her sisters. She was just a kid who had to grow up too fast, she stopped believing in shooting stars and wishes and dreams. It all ended for her the very same night she broke Will's heart and her own.I felt sorry for her and hated that she never let anyone in, she had so much bottled up, so much anger, frustrations, bitterness and much more. She should have let Will in, she shouldn't have broke his heart.But hey the past is the past..



Or is it? What happens when past and present collide and there is no place to run?

”Look at you. You’re all grown up.” He grins, and my knees go a little weak. How could I have forgotten the effect this man’s smile has on my knees?
“I could say the same for you.” I bite my lip. Hopefully no drool has escaped.
That knee-killing grin grows wider. I’m toast.


There were some parts I did not expect, this book kept my attention right until the end.I was glad that this was in both Will's and Cally's POV because it made you see a clearer picture of what was happening and how both main characters felt. It also made you feel conflicted because I felt hurt and annoyed on Will's part even knowing what was going on with Callie.She kept hurting him and he kept forgiving.She assumed that because he has money that things were simple for Will and the rest.
I loved the chemistry between the main characters and loved how supportive their friends were in all of this.

‘I push myself out the door before I can change my mind and I’m greeted by a night of glittering stars. The stars in New Hope are brighter and more plentiful than anywhere else I've ever been. When I was a little girl, I’d would look out my bedroom window each night and pick my favorite one and only then would I make a wish. My father taught me to believe in the magic of wishes and destiny, and I was such an adoring daughter that his words were my scripture and the starry night sky became my temple.’

Lexi Ryan takes you on a journey of forgiveness, mistake, pain, heartbreak and finding happiness, wishing and believing. This book is about how Cally and Will overcome everything and learn to love despite the past and everything bad.To keep believing everything happens for a reason and in the end it will all be alright.
