Book Description

Imagine that you were married to the love of your life and had a happy family. Now imagine everything was destroyed in an instant, making you question who you are and how you can possibly go on once the one person you truly love is gone.
It is a rare thing to find your soul mate, but Jess found true love in Dave when they were only teenagers. They’ve built a happy life together in a small shore town, becoming pillars of the community and making everyone around them envious of the perfect life they have built together. Their love is something that seems like it can only exist in a fairy tale. But what happens when the fairy tale is broken?

Jess has always been the life of the party, and Dave was always there to reel her in and keep her safe. But one night, while on duty as the town Sheriff, the unimaginable happens, altering the directions of their lives forever.
Jess is now forced to dig deep in her soul and find herself again. When love tries to chip away at her frozen over heart, she struggles to fight the guilt of moving on while keeping the memory of her perfect love alive.

This is a story about finding love, having it all taken away, and discovering that moving on doesn’t mean forgetting the past.

***This is the second book of the A Broken Fairy Tale series, but can also be read as a stand alone

*****Contains some spoilers*****

Wished Away follows the story of Jess and Dave. They've known one another since they were little kids. Dave has always been there for Jess and their love was a love that not many got the chance to experience. They were truly happy and had everything going for them: The perfect, happy family and a satisfying marriage. But, one night will change everything. Dave is killed in the line of duty and Jess' whole world falls apart. Jess is lost and doesn't know how to go on. Until Gage. Gage shows Jess how to live and breath again.........

Wished Away is a beautiful and at times heartbreaking story of true love, loss, finding yourself again, learning to move on and taking that second chance at love. Wished away was very well written and the characters were very easy to connect with.

This story is told from Jess and Dave's POV. At first I wasn't too sure how Dave's pov was going to work out, but I was quickly won over. I loved the idea of experiencing Dave's feelings about how his family was dealing with everything and how it all came full circle when Dave was ready to pass on.

And Gage....there are no words. He was exactly what Jess needed in her life. He understood better than anyone how it felt to have your whole world taken away. His relationship with Jess was beautiful. He brought her out of the darkness and didn't give up. And his love for Jess' daughter was just amazing....

I have not read the first book in the series, but did not feel lost at all. However, I definitely will be going back and reading the first one. Wished Away was an emotional yet heartwarming book and is definitely worth the read. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

*****I received an ARC copy of this book via Wordsmith Publicity in exchange for my honest review*****

5.0 out of 5 stars 5+++++ star review! August 4, 2014

Wished Away – SP Cervantes
***** - 5 stars

So, I want to give this book a billion stars plus infinity. It’s that wonderful. I absolutely love this series. It’s about a close knit group of friends who’ve grown up together, found love together, and experienced life together. This series is about family, fun, love, and hope. It’s also sexy as hell and very emotional.

When you read this book you will feel. You will feel joy, pain, hurt, happiness, sadness, but mostly you will feel hope and love. This is the story that will grab you by the heart and hold on til the end. Even after you finish this book, you will think about it.
We get to catch up with Cam and Holden, Joey, and Jess and Dave. We get to see how their lives have changed since Dust to Dust finished. There is tragedy but there’s hope, there’s second chances at living. There’s grief, pain, and hurt but someone comes along and wishes away that pain and eventually that wish becomes real and the pain seems to dissipate some. When something so dark and ugly happens to you, you have to look for the rainbows and butterflies to make living a little easier. Do you believe there’s more than that one soul mate out there? Can you imagine finding the greatest love of your life for a second time?

I actually messaged SP Cervantes while reading this and told her how much I loved it; how much I was feeling it. There are only a few other books out there that have touched me this way so it’s on a very short list. I am so honored that I was given the chance to read Wished Away and review it for you.

Granted, I didn’t say a whole lot about the story because this one that you need to read for yourself and fall in love with. I promise you will.

5.0 out of 5 stars In love with these characters! September 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Where have I been?! How did I not know about S.P. Cervantes. Seriously. Seriously! Give me a second to be wow'd. This woman can write a love story. She makes you feel. She pulls out every emotion you can fathom. She'll make you cry heartbroken tears, but put that broken heart right back together again. I'm in love with this author.

Wished Away is the second in the A Broken Fairy Tale series, following Dust to Dust. It could be read as a standalone but I can't say it enough - Don't short yourself. Read Dust to Dust. Both of these books are leaps and bounds above so many others out there.

I loved Camryn and Holden in Dust to Dust. I was certain there was no way she could top that story. Of course any scene with Jess in it was always so fun and exciting, but I just couldn't imagine liking two characters from their world more than I did Cam and Holden. I was so wrong. So so wrong. Jess and Gage's story grabbed me and didn't let go until the very end. Throughout the pages, you'll feel and experience so many different emotions. It's not all butterflies and rainbows the entire length of the novel, but every page still felt so hopeful. Their connection, their love, their passion. It's just...I use this word so often, but it really felt like they were perfect for one another. They were made for each other, it just took some tragic events and learning experiences to get there. But when they do get there? Sigh. It's breathtaking. Absolutely beautiful.

I really enjoyed seeing how much they help one another. They're both lost, but find their way and future within one another. Seeing Jess return to that bright, glowing person she was couldn't have been written more perfectly. And Dr. McSteamy Gage? Whew. Cervantes is pro at book boyfriends. Pro! I didn't want to like him.
