The story involves Two characters who become acquainted with one another through the male protagonist's daughter. Maya, a computer software designer meets up with next door neighbor, Nick, doctor and father to seven year old Taylor, after she comes to the little girl's rescue. Maya falls for her because she's under the assumption that she can't have children of her own. She sees Taylor as the child she can never have. While at the same time, Taylor has placed Maya in the role of mother, something she doesn't have and badly wants. In the beginning, the daughter is the catalyst binding the two protagonists together. Eventually, however, they fall in love on their own.
Three Wishes includes just enough turmoil to keep the story interesting throughout. This couple had to not only deal with the issue of race (Maya is black, while Nick is White), but deception as well. Life is not perfect, which makes the story more real. Both characters had secrets that they kept from one another, with one really being a huge bombshell.
One also gets the sense that this man and woman truly love one another. And it was a love that we got to see build over time, and not one in which boy meets girl, boy and girl talk, then boy and girl become engaged. Yes, Nick was somewhat mesmerized by Maya, as she was by him, but they were allowed to sort out those feelings. Also, we were treated to a relatively nice degree of sexual intimacy between the two (not too much, not too little).
Admittedly, you'll find some similar plot devices that have shown up in previously released romance novels (i.e., widowed father with daughter in need of mother, who crosses path with woman who happens to be extremely close to her family). Nonetheless, my guess is you'll absolutely love Three Wishes.
Taylor's father, Dr. Nick Whitfield, hurries home when he learns that his daughter's caretaker was hospitalized due to an accident. Nick and Maya are attracted to one another and the precocious Taylor pushes them closer to each other. However, she spent seven years failing to have a child, which resulted in her marriage ending while he fears falling in love ever since his first wife died during childbirth.
Readers who wish for an old fashioned, delightful contemporary romance need look no further than Seressia Glass' warm tale. Two individuals deserving of love, but almost phobic about avoiding the risk makes for a fine story especially with charming protagonists like the lead couple. Though Taylor acts too wise for her age at times, the hearts of fans will reach out to her. Fans will value this appealing novel.
Maya and Nick are next door neighbors who have never really had much contact until his nanny has an accident, doesn't show up and Maya comes home from work and sees his eight year old daughter, Taylor, soaking wet and sitting on the porch in the rain. She contacts Nick ( a surgeon) through his answering service and that's when the real action begins.
Initially miffed at him for letting Taylor sit out in the rain, Maya chides him for not having his cell phone on or at least keeping his battery charged. He, on the other hand, is really nervous about Taylor being over Maya's house when he doesn't really know her, but he has not choice than to trust her until he can get home from the hospital. However, once he gets to her house, looks at Maya, sees Taylor's response to her and eats a great home cooked meal by this children's software developer, he's hooked.
They both face demons from their past marriages and the inevitable problems of an interracial couple trying to live their lives in a world that still has a few racist [people]. But, the author has tons of great subplots like Maya's mixed heritage, Nick's racist mother, the princess club and passion that keep you reading it until the happy ending! I think that you'll like this one.
However due to secrets they hold they initially chose not to act on them instead choosing to opt for friendship. Of course friendship slowly turns to love and the two find themselves desperately wanting to be a family. Naturally things go awry when secrets are exposed but as in any good love story the two overcome their obstacles and indeed become a family. What was unique about this story was though there was instant attraction the story explored them falling in love as opposed to love at first sight. All and all a very nice read one I sure you'll enjoy.
