Wish I May is the sequel to Unbreak Me, in Lexi Ryan's new adult romance series, New Hope. This story was told in dual perspective between Will & Call..Show More »y. It also went back & forth between past/present. This helped give much needed insight into just how Will became the person we saw in Unbreak Me. We begin as two high school kids are madly in love. William is the wealthy, popular boy and Cally is the girl from the poor family that no one thinks is good enough for him. But they are being ripped apart by circumstances.

This book is about how Cally & Will overcome everything and learn to love despite the past and everything bad. To keep believing everything happens for a reason and in the end it will all be alright. The story moved at a steady pace, with fantastic characters that easily tug on your heart strings in a believable plot that anyone you know could be living. Cally's secret's also kept me intrigued throughout the story. Lexi Ryan takes you on a journey of forgiveness, mistake, pain, heartbreak and finding happiness, wishing and believing. The story kept me interested til the very end. The pacing was perfect and all the events with twists took place at the right moment. I think that I enjoyed it even more then Unbreak Me. Maggie and Logan are great and don't get me wrong their story was just as good but something about William and Cally and the heartbreak that Cally endures really got to me. Oh! Even though Wish I May is part of the New Hope series, it can be a stand-alone novel. Excellent job by the author and I would recommend this book.
