Publisher's Summary

"Elise Sax will win your heart." --Jill Shalvis  

"Fans of laugh-out-loud romantic suspense will enjoy this author as she joins the ranks of Janet Evanovich, Katie MacAllister, and Jennifer Crusie."--Booklist  

The Five Wishes Series is five hot and hilarious novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Each novella is roughly 100 pages with NO cliffhanger. Five Wishes...A happy ending is just a coin toss away.  

Book 1: Going Down:
Marion MacAlister wants to nail her audition, not get nailed. Truly. Honestly. All right...maybe she does want to get nailed, but that's just because her hottie landlord and local diner owner Mack Ryan is confusing her. Can friends become lovers? Especially friends who might not even be friends in the first place?  

Book 2: Man Candy:
Raine Harper is in love with Wade Gates. But Wade likes women who are model thin, and Raine is model thin plus a whole lot of pounds. Desperate to make him love her, she trains just a little too hard and passes out in the arms of superstar movie star Dirk Adams. Dirk thinks Raine’s junk in the trunk is perfect and proposes to make Wade jealous by becoming her pretend boyfriend. Pretend soon seems very real. Is Dirk a great actor, or is something really developing between Raine and the movie star?  

Book 3: Hot Wired:
Marie Foster is not a cheater. Nevertheless, she gets thrown out of college for doing just that. With her life turned upside down, she decides to try new things. You know…Get drunk in a bar. Pick up a guy. Marry a stranger, who just happens to be a hot billionaire.  

Book 4: Just Sacked:
Layla has been working at her family’s bar since she was five years old. But it’s more than a bar. It’s home. Now with her family gone and debts piling up, her bar is repossessed and taken over by local businessman Hank Taylor.

Too Funny!

I loved it. This story is hilarious. Five women make a wish at this dilapidated fountain in town, only the well is dried out and all cracked therefore screwing up all their wishes entirely! The narration is really good and keeps you entertained. This author did a great job with her characters and plot. A job well done!

A Sweet and Cozy Romance Series

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Ready for some sweet and steamy romances? Then relax and enjoy this series centered around fabulous women and their breathtakingly handsome men. The main and returning character is a fountain, and not an appealing one apparently, but with magical powers and a lots of mischief. So what if the wish you asked for didn't actually come through? The substitute one certainly makes up for it.... One word keeps everything tied together and that word is "cute": cute characters, cute plots, cute background. I did like how the main characters for the next book in the series came popping out in the current one making cameo appearances. The narration was sweet and very well interpreted and the writing pleasant and smooth.
Cozy up next to a fire and enjoy this marathon of happily ever after love stories.

Absolutely Sweet Funny and Romantic!! LOVE THESE BOOKS!

Esparanza, a little town in California, is the setting for each story. Sweet, unique and uninhibited women are the heroines in each story. From a hopeful actress, caterer, chemical engineer doctoral candidate, bar owner and a baker. Connected to unique families who provide great secondary characters and a mixture of innocence.
Each heroine meets unexpectedly their alpha yet sweet and protective hero..a man who appreciates the true sweet woman...and insta love and a lot scene or two.
The narrator is Absolutly incredible for the characters...a sweet young voice for the heroines and she does a great job for the males. The emotion, excitement, innocence are all easily shown in her pacing tone and emotion...great acting!
These are silly and laugh out loud...Such a nice change from so many serious angst stories.
MORE MORE MORE PLEASE!

Laughing out way to their Happily Ever After

Going Down: This was a great quick listen. Angie did a wonderful job narrating and helped make the story even funnier. Elise did an awesome job writing this story and kept me laughing. Marion and Mack together were cute and funny and all around highly entertaining. I loved listening to this story and having a smile on my face just about the entire time with Marion's scattered brain (or ditsy blondness I'm not sure which to call it). Like I said this was great especially if you want to laugh.

Man Candy: I loved listening to Angie narrate. She made this story more enjoyable than it already was. Hearing about Raine and her crazy plans to get a jerk and the sweetheart Dirk coming to help kept me laughing and smiling the entire story. I love listening to this series and I plan on hearing them all.

Hot Wired: This story really made me laugh and brightened my day. Poor Marie and her scatterbrained innocence. Just hearing Angie narrate this awesome story really made my day. I don't know of more to say than this is funny and all together too funny of a read to ever pass it up.

Just Sacked: I loved getting to listen to Layla and Hank's adventure into Mexico. With all the mishaps and the trouble these two get into its awesome. I couldn't help but laugh at poor Hank and his unfortunate luck at everything bad happening to him. It was great and extremely entertaining.

Wicked Ride: I loved this wild ditzy ride. Sweet Fiona and her small town innocence getting swept away by hunky Ronin in her quest to kill her jerk of a neighbor and save her family farm. I loved reading this story and getting to hear Angie narrate it just made the story so much funnier. This is a great story and awesomely entertaining.

The five stories are enjoyable and have funny parts that you don't always foresee. I also like it that all five stories are a bit linked with characterwise.

Perfect Anthology for Summer & Holiday Listening!

The Five Wishes Series by Elise Sax are 5 extremely fun short stories that are perfect for summer vacation or a holiday week-end. Each story involves the heroine making a wish by throwing a coin into a dry fountain in the middle of a small-town square. Not one of the wishes comes true in the literal sense, but each story ends happily, with many chuckles and laugh out loud moments throughout.

The stories vary from basically a classic "opposites attract" story, a marriage of convenience story, a long-time friend turns lover story, and a famous actor falls for local girl story. While all the stories have sexual tension, they vary on how much sex is in them. Thankfully there is not too much graphic details in any of them that is drawn out for pages and pages. Despite the stories being relatively short and running about 2 hours each, they are well written for the genre and immensely entertaining.

I listened to the Audible version of this series narrated by Angie Hickman who did an excellent job giving each character their own voice. She had great intonation and pace and delivered the quick snarky comments with aplomb. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. I can’t wait to listen to the next audiobook by Elise Sax and narrated by Angie Hickman!

A Great Feel Good Listen

This is just what I needed to listen to right now, this was a great feel good listen that had me laughing and wanting to listen to more once I started.

Angie Hickman did a great job narrating this series, it's my first time listening to a book she has narrated, but it certainly won't be my last.

Cute

Thank you to Angie Hickman for giving me this audiobook free of charge in return for an honest review.

The Five Wishes series is a few different stories that follows different characters as their wishes come true after wishing in a local well.

The Good Stuff
This was a really enjoyable audiobook with different short stories, all very entertaining and easy listens. The characters were all really likable and in my opinion, there wasn't one dud story.

I got about an hour into the story before I realised that I'd listened to narrator Angie Hickman before when I listened to 'Tinsel in a Tangle'. She really is a great narrator who really gets you stuck in the story. She really commits to what's going on with different voices and accents. Probably one of the best authors I've listened to.

I think that my favorite story of them all was 'Just Sacked'. It was quite funny to listen to and at times I did find myself chuckling.

When the story began I thought that maybe there would be far too many characters for me to keep track of, but it wasn't at all. The stories were so easy to follow and simple enough to not have to completely pay attention. It is really clever how each character of a story is introduced in the one before. I really enjoyed guessing what their story would be when they came into the picture.

Feel-good, laugh-out-loud contemporary romances!

This series is delightful. The stories are short, quirky, quick-paced and heavy on the feel-good factor. I particularly like how many of the characters have back stories and each book is almost like a snapshot of the poignant moments when their relationship took on a romantic flavour.

Elise Sax and Angie Hickman make a good pair. Elise creates funny characters and puts them in funny, and sometimes awkward, situations. Angie breathes life into the characters, giving their thoughts and words voice.

I have really enjoyed all five of the books. My only complaint is that I wish they were longer. Each story is so funny and I could happily enjoy more humourous moments!
