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!

Five Wishes

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

This was a fun enjoyable read. Each book averages out to be around 2 hours each so you can have a few quick listens if you are tight on time. There are times when you will laugh out loud because of the silliness these girls have. Very fun to listen.

not for me

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

I hate to leave negative reviews but I didn't care for this series at all. I found it to be pretty lacking and a bit tacky.

5 star wishes

First I heard from the author. It was fun sexy and hilarious. She knew how to draw the listener in ? Her female characters are funny and down to earth but with a big wish list

There are 5 friends that have a wish each that they would love to see become reality. They decide to do what most do Find a well and drop a penny and make their wishes. There is only one problem!!! The well is dry ! Listen to this and see how the dry well delivers the wishes. And how the women act
Each story has a heroine in it

The narrator Angie nailed it right on. First time I listened to her

I wish the book had more depth.

The heroines were shallow and l found myself unable to connect to them.


Angie Hickman, the narrator, was the only saving grace.

Five Fun Books in One

I so enjoy this series. Elise Sax and Angie Hickman are the perfect combination. The characters are quirky, original and endearing. Each story is a standalone listen that takes place on Summer Island. The imagery in each book is awesome. I loved how the wishing fountain was involved in this series. The humor is great too. Angie Hickman is able to give each character a distinguished voice so its easy to know who is speaking. She adds so much to the enjoyment of the book with her enthusiastic performance and expressions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Fun for some good romantic comedy laughs

These are a fun group of romantic comedies. They are funny, quirky and although they are a series they're good stand alone books. Book 2 was my favorite. I loved the characters and I found this one to be especially funny. The narration is very good. Angie Hickman makes these books flow perfectly and although her male characters don't have the deep voices they should, we can tell they are men and they don't sound ridiculous. Be aware, these books do have some explicit sex scenes. If you like romantic comedies and don't mind some hot sex scenes, these books are quick, funny and enjoyable! I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Heroines are awesome!

What a fun boxset to listen to! It's full of five short but fun and silly stories that had me laughing over the crazy antics of these couples. The narrator, Angie Hickman has the perfect voice for these crazy heroines and I think she adds more enjoyment to the book itself. If you like silly humor, I highly recommend this audiobook by Elise Sax. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

adorable

I received this book in exchange for a review. I really enjoyed this collection of books. personally I don't believe in wishing wells but I do believe that you eventually get what you are looking for it just may not be exactly what you expect. that is what these stories are about. about getting what you want but in a different way.

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!
