Book Description

**Contains sexual content and adult language and situations. Intended for mature readers.**

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.

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.**

I did not think that I could love William Bailey any more then I already do but after Stolen Wishes I am head over heels, and crazy in love, when it comes to William Bailey. The way that William puts Cally on a pedestal is breathtaking. He falls hard and fast for her, and looks at her like she hung the moon and the stars in the sky. Cally is smitten with William and admires him from afar. She is overjoyed and overwhelmed when he actually pursues her. He is her knight in shining armour. Stolen Wishes is only the beginning of one of the most heart-wrenching and sinfully sexy love stories I have ever read. This novella should make you run out and buy Wish I May. If you already own Wish I May, after reading Stolen Wishes, William Bailey will own a piece of your heart.

Travel back to high school and see how it all began for William and Cally in Stolen Wishes, the prequel novella to Lexi Ryan’s Wish I May. I love the New Hope Series and fell in love hard for this couple while reading Wish I May. By the end of the book I was begging to know more about their history, about the events that transpired prior to this book. To say I was excited to get my hands on this novella is an understatement.

The only way I can describe this novella is pure satisfaction. Every loose end or question about the past that surfaced while reading Wish I May was neatly tied off and resolved in Stolen Wishes. If you haven’t read the series I would recommend reading this in between Unbreak Me and Wish I May. It’s the perfect introduction and transition from William/Maggie to William/Cally.

Despite being brief in length, Stolen Wishes overflows with emotion and content. The story is a combination of hope and heartbreak. The connection between William and Cally is undeniable and the foundation of their relationship is built. William is her mega swoon-worthy knight in shining armor. Both characters offer each other hope to find happiness outside of the confines of their family’s demands and reputation, but their potential is extinguished just as quickly as it ignited.

Stolen Wishes is the perfect addition to William and Cally’s story. It fulfills any lingering questions about their past and builds anticipation for the next installment in Lexi Ryan’s New Hope Series.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY HEART (and I say this in a good way.) January 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was fortunate enough to have been given an early copy of this and since I absolutely adore Lexi Ryan and *cough*William*cough* I pounced on this book like a starved woman and oh. My. God. My heart, my poor little heart. You know that moment when you're riding a rollercoaster and you're at that point when the ride is just ascending and you don't know when it'll make that drop? Well, that's exactly what it felt like while I was reading Stolen Wishes, it's true that I did read Wish I May before Stolen Wishes but that didn't stop me from enjoying this book, it actually made the experience more... exhilarating. There was a sense of foreboding, which was the "drop", but I didn't necessarily know when it was going to happen and that made me really anxious. It's literally you knowing what's going to happen before the characters do and you want to warn them sooo bad but you can't and all you can do is watch and feel with them. (I suggest you read this one before Wish I May if you don't want to develop masochistic tendencies. I'm being serious.)

I don't know how but Lexi Ryan made me actually love William more in this book. (I don't even have an residual feelings left for Asher anymore... Sorry, babe.) William is such an inherently good person but not too good, if you catch my drift. *waggles eyebrows* But in all seriousness, if you loved William in Wish I May, you'll find that your feelings for him will have grown stronger in this book. It's not because he's a sweet and swoony guy, it's because you'll catch glimpses of the man he'll turn into the future and trust me, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars I needed more William Bailey in my life! January 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely love the New Hope Series and Callie and Will are two of my favorite characters. I freaking loved them and reading their story in Wish I May so I was super excited when Lexi offered ARCs for their prequel novella. I needed more Cally and Will and seeing how it all started seven years ago was so exciting. I love Lexi’s writing and the plot and character development was expertly done, especially for a novella.

William and Cally come from completely different worlds and grew up on the opposite side of the tracks. They’re both trying to break free from their family and find their own way in the world. Despite all their difference, that’s one thing they have in common and I think that’s why they have this instant connection. Of course, William is the handsome, rich, popular quarterback and the fantasy of every girl’s dream, Cally included but what Cally doesn’t realize is that she’s caught William’s eye too and he has secretly been crushing on her. Will is seriously so sweet and I love him so much.

Cally is a bit insecure about herself and skeptical about Will’s attention in the beginning but considering her family situation, I can totally understand it. She can’t imagine why Will would be interested in her when he can have any other girl in school. However, she quickly realizes that Will is so much more than a pretty face and she doesn’t let her insecurities get in the way of building something with him. I really love that Cally doesn’t let her mom’s reputation or what people think of her define who she is. However, I think she worries so much that she’ll be like her mother that she is extra cautious. She takes things very slow with Will and I respected her for that. I respected Will even more for not pressuring her and being supportive of her feelings.
