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 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.Read more ›
In Wished Away we get to find out more about Jessica and Dave. I am sorry to say that I couldn’t really connect with these characters. Don’t get me wrong. All of them are great but I guess I fell in love with Cam and Holden and now I keep comparing everyone else with them and they come short.
This story is a little bit different from the first one. Here, the lesson is “life goes on even if your heart is shattered”.
What Jess and Dave had was perfect. The perfect love, the perfect marriage, the perfect family. They never thought that something might happen that will make everything disappear.
So, when Dave is killed while trying to save a little girl, Jessica is left adrift. She doesn’t know how to function without him and their daughter is the only thing that keeps her going.
Gage has lost his beloved wife in a car accident and he’s still mourning her. The fact that he works in a hospital and has to deal with death every day doesn’t help.
One evening, he has to operate on his friend, Dave, and see Jessica fall apart when he doesn’t make it.
Then, Gage and Jessica meet again, and he has a goal.
When I started reading, for a little while I feared this will be one of those novels where the author skips through long periods of time without giving us any details on how the characters got where they are right now. This I find extremely annoying and it’s one of the few things that makes me give up on a book.
It sort of happens here also but the effect is not bad. This because, all through the book, we get to see glimpses of the past, so you won’t have any trouble understanding.Read more ›
