Review: Stolen Wishes by Lexi Ryan


Title: Stolen Wishes (New Hope #1.5)

Author: Lexi Ryan

SeriesNew Hope




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.**



Natalie’s Review – 4 Stars

I absolutely adore the New Hope series by Lexi Ryan. She has quickly become a favorite of mine. Her writing is flawless, the depth of emotion that you feel and the complex and real characters that she creates makes it nearly impossible for you not to become invested in them and their lives.

Having followed Will along from Unbreak Me (New Hope #1) where I first fell for him (yes, even with some of the stupid decisions he made) to Wish I May (New Hope #2) where my heart just melted at the reunion of Will and Cally to now Stolen Wishes (New Hope #1.5) where I got to see where it all began I don’t think I could love Will anymore. He has stolen a little piece of my heart. He is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy, a true down to earth good guy who even with all his money and status he still loves the girl from “the wrong side of the tracks”.

Cally is that girl. She is poor with an addicted mother who is not opposed to giving out “happy endings” in her massage business just to get some extra money for her next fix and a father who is more concerned about his own interests than his families. Cally has to endure the name calling and stares from her classmates, feeling insecure and alone until she meets Will. 

When Cally and Will get together it is beautiful and heartbreaking.  First love, first touches, everything you would expect from a young couple in high school. If you haven’t had a chance yet to read this series I highly recommend you do.  

I <3 you Lexi Ryan!
