From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.


Let’s start off by talking about this cover. It’s gorgeous! I absolutely love all the colors. But the best part of all is how perfectly it fits the book. The cover is remarkably well thought out.

This is such a tough review to write! I want to talk about everything I just read. I want to talk about how it all made me feel, because my goodness, there were ALOT of feelings. But I’m not going to because I think this book needs to be read without any hints.

This is a beautiful story about music, falling in love and the lengths people for go for their loved ones. I tearfully made my way through half of this beautifully written story savoring every heartbreaking word the author graced us with. You are going to want to make sure you have a box or two of Kleenex handy, probably the super soft kind. I ugly cried a lot, so when you pick up this book, be prepared.

Bonnie and Cromwell were both 20-year-old university students. Their connection is instant and their aversion to it is valiant, but in the end, you can’t fight love.

Cromwell was an incredible book boyfriend. I don’t often get attached to my book-boyfriends, but I’ve found myself reluctant to entertain books featuring other musicians.   I have no doubt those books are wonderful, but Cromwell will be the standard to which they are all compared and I can’t imagine anyone measuring up.

A Wish For Us was one of the most beautiful stories I’ve read in a long while. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading stories that will make you cry and break your heart before putting it back together again.
