**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.**

  • has potential

    So far it has potential to being a good romance. I tend to like my stories with a little more angst and passion, but its sweet. It starts off with tradegy and hopefully ends with happiness. This a story with the popular boys falls in love with the poor-lonely girl who has a troubled family. I have a hard time understanding this kind of love at an early age in life. I'm not a fan of high school romances and believing they will last forever.

    I enjoyed the book but didn't like the story being in parts. Would have been better in one book.

    By JLKeniston
    I loved this book! I can't seem to get enough of William and Cally. I loved finding out what took place before Wish I May. Sometimes we never find out what took place before. The love they share makes me feel so good. You won't be sorry!

    A knight in Shinning Armor! **ARC Review** **My Review** This was a good follow up for Cally & William from the Wish I May (New Hope) series. The story gives you more insight on these to characters you begin to love William more lol. I thought the author did a good job letting you get to know these to characters more. Cally's Dad & Mom made me so mad. Also I think people out there reading this could relate in someone way about the hardship she went through. End the in this story ended good I thought. I want to read more about these characters & the previous characters in I wish I May... Ooo especially Williams Friends & Thompson Twins.
