“I was always told never to wish on the first star at night. If everyone wishes on one star, how will the star keep up? A star with too many wishes will just fall out of the sky. Rain drops are plentiful, and there are thousands. They wash away the filth and carry it to a better place. So when you make a wish, wish on the water and let it carry your problems away.”
Candice-Leigh Carson, a New York City best-selling author, was engaged to one of NYPD's finest. She was living the dream until she lost her fiancé, quit her job and moved, leaving behind the only family she ever knew. She left her best friend Jaxson, without saying goodbye. In her quest to find herself, would she ever find love again?
Jaxson Monroe, one of NYPD's finest, lost his partner when an undercover job went south. After spending a night with his partner's lover, Candice, she flees into the night. He loved Candice and had promised his partner he would protect her. It was his fault she ran, but he quickly found himself in the arms of another. Would Jaxson ever convince Candice to come home or did he prefer another woman? Would their love survive his betrayal and her abandonment?
This is a story I wasn't expecting; it's better than what I anticipated! So much more than just two lifelong friends who are crushed by the loss of another lifelong friend (and fiance to the heroine), who find solace in each other and get together.
Although that actually does happen, but it's what comes after that one night that takes this story to a whole new level of WTFery! After their night together (but before the sun comes up), Candice leaves all she's known and relocates across the country. Six months later she's back in New York for her job, and that's when things start popping off with quite a twists and turns throughout the story until you get to that cliffhanger that will make you gasp like you're hyperventilating, then scream in frustration because you want the next book RIGHT THE EFF NOW but it's not out yet.
Can you tell that I really, really enjoyed this book? Because I did. So go get it. NOW!!!!
