At what point do you stop wishing on stars?
Hannah Mills was content in her life. She was the personal assistant to best-selling author, Melissa Loring. But now Melissa was engaged to the famous actor, Will Martinsson, and they were traveling around the world based on his filming and interview schedule. Hannah loved traveling with them, but she didn’t want to run into Royce Rivers, Will’s co-star and friend. The same man she called friend, until one night, things went too far. She tried as hard as she could to keep him out of her heart and body, but she knew if she saw him again, she’d lose the battle, and she couldn’t allow herself to fall for him.
Royce Rivers grew up in the spotlight, a second-generation actor. When he was younger, he did everything and anything to rebel, becoming a typical Hollywood statistic on bad behavior. It took many years, but he cleaned his act up and was at a point in his life when he could try and enjoy it. Then one Miss Hannah Mills walked into his life and nothing was the same. He knew she was keeping something from him. If there was one thing he was familiar with, it was demons, and she had hers. What started as fun and games with a new friend, soon changed to something more. Royce wanted nothing more than to slay the demons which kept her away from him so they could have their happily ever after.
When two people battling demons meet and can no longer deny their feelings, there is nothing they can do but see if their wish comes true.
This is book 2 in the series and it’s Hannah Miller’s story. If you read book 1, you already know she is the assistant to writer Melissa Loring. You can read this book as a standalone, but I would suggest you read When Dreams Come True (Star Series #1) that you way you get to know Hannah and Royce before reading Wishing.
Hannah and Royce hooked up in book 1. You already know that Royce Rivers is an actor and his best friend is also fellow actor Will Martinnson and who is engaged to Melissa Loring. Hannah’s and Royce affair was brief since Hannah does not believe in Happily Ever Afters. She has had an awful experience with an ex and she does not want to go down that road again.
Royce is having none of it. He wants his redheaded woman back. Royce had some issues regarding his past, but he has put those in the back burner. He does not want to destroy his career with the previous mistakes he has made in the past. He wants Hannah and will do anything in his power to get her back into his life.
Their chemistry for each other was always there even from book 1, it didn’t take long for Hannah to let Royce into her heart and back into her bed, but she finds out her ex will be getting out of prison soon, can only test their relationship. I thought this book would have a little more angst given that Hannah’s ex-boyfriend was coming out of prison, but overall, the story did not disappoint. Although, I thought Hannah was going to give Royce a harder time to win her over, but the story did not fail. This book was a quick read. Some really nice sexy times. Way to go Michele, I really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to reading Hope’s story next in the series.
