I'm happy to bringing you a guest post and giveaway for Wished Away, by SP Cervantes. I recently read Wished Away, and thought I was a beautiful, emotional story. Thanks for stopping by!
Title: Wished Away (A Broken Fairy Tale #2)
Author: S.P. Cervantes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release date: 8/5/14
Imagine that you were married to the love of your life and had a happy family. Now imagine everything was destroyed in an instant, making you question who you are and how you can possibly go on once the one person you truly love is gone.
It is a rare thing to find your soul mate, but Jess found true love in Dave when they were only teenagers. They've built a happy life together in a small shore town, becoming pillars of the community and making everyone around them envious of the seemingly perfect life they have built together. Jess has always been the life of the party, and Dave was always there to reel her in and keep her safe. But one night, while on duty as the town Sheriff, the unimaginable happens, altering the directions of their lives forever.
This is a story about finding love, having it all taken away, and discovering that moving on doesn't mean forgetting the past.
**DUST TO DUST is the first book of the series and introduces you to the close relationships these five friends have with each other. This is the second book of the series, but can be read as a stand alone.
SP's Favorite Quotes from Wished Away
“You’re all I need Jess. You’re all I’ll ever need.”- I love this because it shows that even after so many years together, Jess and Dave were as much in love then as they were the day they met.
“What if I said I don’t want it to get easier? It feels like if it doesn’t hurt, then it wasn’t real.”I feel his hand slide across the palm of my hand, forcing me to look up at him, “Do you think that’s what he’d want?” His words cut at me. It’s as if Dave is speaking through him. He lightly squeezes my hand before letting it go. - I like this quote because Gage says the things to Jess that others are too worried to.
“Jess,” his voice is a whisper, “I really want to kiss you right now.”- I love this so hard because who wouldn’t want a hot man saying that to you! LOL
He actually lets out a growl before pulling me close again and nips at my ear, “You have no idea who you’re dealing with Jess. Don’t tempt me.” He pulls back and his eyes turn soft, “We’re both drunk, and I don’t want you to have any regrets tomorrow.” – I think this shows how much he respects her and understands her need to take things slow, while showing his dominant side.
“Is that what you’re doing, Jess? Are you living?”- This part questions if Jess is honoring Dave’s last wish and starts to have Jess begin to open up more.
Kat takes my free hand in hers, “Jess, you’ll never leave him behind, none of us will. But it’s time to move on.”- At this point Jess needs her family and friends support while dealing with her mixed emotions. This is a moment of change for her.
He took in a deep breath and lifted my face so my eyes met his, “This look Jess, this is a look of love.” He placed his hands on my cheeks bearing his gaze into mine, lacing his heart to mine. “When I look at you this way, you need to know it’s only because I love you.”- I mean, really…who wouldn’t want to hear that?
“You make me feel so much more than I ever thought I could feel with just a touch.” He trails his fingers teasingly down the V of my sweater, along my breast, making me shiver. “You mean so much, I just want to drown in you Jess. I want to drown in all of you.”- I love this because it shows their connection with each other is so much more powerful than anything they’ve felt before.
“Dreams change Jess.” He reaches over, takes my hand in his, and places a kiss on my palm, making the connection I so badly crave, “Dreams change.”- This shows how much she means to him and how much he doesn’t take love for granted anymore.
“He’s the plaster for your cracks, Jess. Don’t let him get away.”- I love this quote from Joey because as cheesy as he is, this really does say on a very basic level what Gage does for Jess.
