The Five Wishes Series: Novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Five Wishes...A happy ending is just a coin toss away. Each novella is approximately 100 pages with NO cliffhanger.
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?
Customer ReviewsSee All
I normally don’t write reviews but I was truly horrified by how the female protagonists in these books hated their bodies so much. It’s really upsetting to constantly see the female characters diminish their self-worth because they’re not a certain size. The author creates a really awful read by doing this.

Cute and funny!
Nice, quick summer read!
I have a new author to stalk! I absolutely loved these two short stories. It's full of silly humor, great banter and adorable characters.
Book 1 is Marion and Mack's story. They've been neighbors for 2 years and have been dancing around their mutual attraction until they both get stuck in an elevator where Mack finally makes a move.
Book 2 is Raine and Dirk's story. Raine has been desperately trying to get Wade Gates attention since middle school. Instead she gets the attention of a famous actor who has women swooning and men admitting to their man crushes.
The hilarity that follows each of these pairs as they fumble through their attraction was highly entertaining. Add in great side characters in Raine's book and I am hooked! I'm looking forward to more from this author.
