Genre: Contemporary Romance

Amazon US | UK | CA | AU
Also available for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!
Lexie has one goal in life: to grant one last wish for each of her patients. There isn’t a request she will deny, and has yet to fail to deliver a promise. That is, until the day she goes in search of the infamous rock star Kaleb Knight, who can’t care less about her life’s ambition, or the children she is determined to help. 

Kaleb has his own dark secrets. He lives each day as if it’s his last, and refuses to spare a moment of his time to play the part of a knight in shining armor—especially for someone like Lexie . . . or so he thought. Now, his head and heart are at war, and his soul is screaming she is exactly what he needs. 

Will Lexie be the only one that can save him in the end? Or will he instead succumb to the darkness threatening to consume him? 




“Yeah, buddy?” 

He sucks in a deep breath before saying, “Do you think there are stars in heaven?” 

“Of course there are. There is anything your little heart desires.” 

“Even my hot fudge sundaes?” His question causes me to lightly laugh. Of course he asks about his favorite dessert that he has been craving for the past month. 

“Even your hot fudge sundaes,” I reply. “Before you know it, you’ll be having a stomach ache from eating too much sugar.” 

This causes his mother to whimper as she struggles against surrendering to the breaking point. She’s always fought to not break down in front of Braden. She doesn’t want him to see how upset this entire situation makes her. 

He brightens from the response, his eyes returning to the show above us. The entire time my view is locked on the little angel in front of me, knowing everything I’ve done tonight to make this possible is still not enough for him. He deserves more. He deserves a lifetime worth of years to gaze up at the stars, not borrowed hours as we wait, wondering when the end will come. 

Unfortunately, the wait wasn’t long. Braden took his last breath two days later. I was at his side, holding his mother’s hand when he gave his last smile before closing his eyes for the final time. He took a piece of my heart with him at that very moment, but they all have.

Review by Gia:
Wishful Thinking is absolutely amazing.    I'm a little nervous writing this review because I don't want to give anything away.  So if my review is a little vague that's why.  
I jumped into reading this one without reading the blurb.   I had no idea what the book was about when I began reading it.   It's am amazing emotional read.  
Lexie lost someone really close to her when she was younger.  Now as an adult she is a nurse in the children's cancer wing.   She is amazing.  She goes above and beyond her nursing duties with her patients.   She grants her patients last wish.  She isn't with Make a Wish or anything like that, she grants their wishing on her own.   She truly gets to know her patients and stay after her work hours to be with them.   I really loved Lexie's character.
One of Lexie's patients, Ben, is a huge fan of of Kaleb form the band Dragon Knights.  Lexie is determined to get Kaleb to come meet Ben.  Kaleb is a sexy rock star.  He is not very friendly at first.  He is battling his own past and current demons.  
Lexie and Kaleb's story is a great one.  This is a must read!!!
