Wish I May Review + Giveaway

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.

 Wish I May is the second book in the New Hope Series.  This is can be a standalone book, because leave it to me I haven't read the first book in this series.  The books in this series talks about different characters.  I have plans to go back and read Unbreak Me because we get a glimance into the couples, and I must say Asher is a hottie.  

Every day you're in my life is a special occasion.

I rate Wish I May with Four and a Half Leaves! Wish I May is about Cally, a damaged girl that has some issues to come over her past; and William who just wants to love someone with all his heart and more.  Cally returns to New Haven seven years later, after the death of her mom. When Cally was sixteen years old, left with her mom and sisters for a better tomorrow.  As Cally helps to get her sisters adjusted living with her father, she runs into her first love, William.  Cally broke William's heart when she was sixteen, and William has yet to get over Cally.  When William sees Cally for the first time in over seven years, all his feelings come flooding back to him.
After seven years. After the lamest breakup in history of breakups. After breaking his heart, and dismissing my own, I'm still very much his.
Wish I May is told through both William and Cally's POV’s.  Cally has so many secrets, the big secret who is Brandon? You have to read this book to see how the story unravels.  Cally is filled with pain, guilt, and heart in her heart and mind.  You have no idea how this book is going to end! I was so hooked on this book, I never wanted to put it down! And, I didn't... I read it in one sitting!! Be with me Cally. You're my compass. My north star.I can't wait to read more books in the New Hope series!! I hope Lexi Ryan writes a book about Hanna and Mark!
