Blog tour: Wish I May (New Hope #2) by Lexi Ryan



Rating: 4/5 stars
Publication Date: October 4, 2013
Blurb:

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.

Review:

I liked Wish I may more than I expected. Will is Mr Commitment and Cally has some serious problems. It took me more than usual to get into the book but once I did I can say that I enjoyed the ride. Mr Commitment has 2 broken engagements and some other serious relationship on his record. He wants a family but he was looking at the wrong places. I don't think that he could be 100% without Cally. Cally on the other hand has a family. But her mother is dead and had a bad reputation, her father lives in his own world and her sister Drew seems not to like her. Cally has been through hell and it's hard not to feel sympathy for her. 

Will is a great guy. I don't think that you can dislike him. Even after what Cally did to him he tries to help her in every way he can. Cally is more complicated than Will. She has done many things in her life that if you don't know all the story you are going to judge her incorrectly. I don't want to spoil but there is no way that you won't feel sorry for her.

I liked the pace of the story. Not too slow, not too fast. The flashbacks were the best way to show us what happened and led Will and Cally to a break up. Hannah and Lizz were great supporting characters and I would love to read their stories.
