Amazon  iBooks  Kobo  Nook

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

My heart has been ripped out. I mean, wow! This story was brilliant. I loved the way it was laid out and the flow of it. I usually avoid super emotional and ugly cry books like the plague. Because once the tears start for me, they don’t stop. Tillie really did a number on this girl and a box of Puffs.

This book is one I will NOT be forgetting for a long time to come. When someone asks me what book will make me ugly cry and purge my soul…it’ll be this one. Although it was super emotional and sometimes gutwrenchingly sad, it was also beautiful and sweet. Passionate. Soooo much passion. About music, life, and love.

This is an easy five star read for me. It made me feel, made me think, made me want to hug all of my loved ones a little tighter. It reminded me of all the simple things in life we all take for granted and made me appreciate it a little more. So if that’s what Tillie was going for with this book, she nailed it and then some.
