One fateful night four years ago, Destiny Rose Porter gave in to her desires and ended up with a shattered heart. A heart that, with time, learned to heal and guard itself. But when Jefferson James Briggs returns to their small hometown of Wishing Well, Texas, memories of that unforgettable night come back with him....
JJ Briggs knew he had started something he couldn't finish four years ago. But now, he was back to set it right. The sexy Major League pitcher never forgot about his fiery redhead. The love and passion he felt for his “Pip” never faded.
They say old wounds cut deep...will JJ be able to heal the pain he caused all those years ago? Or will history repeat itself, keeping his Destiny just out of reach?
Best new small town series
Destiny has been in love with JJ her whole life. JJ has been in love with Destiny since she was a teen however, after JJ leaves Destiny broken hearted one fateful night Destiny has convinced herself that she has moved on from JJ until he returns to Wishing Well Texas ready to make a play for her heart.
Wishing Well is my new favorite small town series! I would rank it right up there with Lucky Harbor, Fools Gold, Virgin River, and Hope Falls. I’m going to toss my quarter in the well and wish for at least 6 more books after the other two Melanie and Shawna already have planned.
I loved JJ and Destiny it’s was so touching to read about the ups and downs of their past and to see them come together to find their happily ever after. My favorite part about Destiny is her sarcastic humor and holds no prisoners attitude. If she thinks it, she says it and everything she says was so funny. More than once I was laughing out loud in public and drew some curious looks. JJ captured my heart from the beginning, you could feel his love and devotion to Destiny he just needed some time to heal past hurts and fumble around a bit. Now for 100% honesty the quotes from Grandma Dixie at the start of each chapter were absolutely priceless and should be made into one of those daily quote calendars. Grandma Dixie is a supporting character but every time she makes an appearance in the book she steals the show.
I have read every book Melanie and Shawna have written and I think this might be my favorite of all of them. Although that is like picking a favorite kid, it’s really impossible to do. I also really loved the way they wove in some of the characters from their popular Crossroads series as they are some of my favorite characters and I love getting another peak into their lives. If this is your first Melanie Shawn book than be prepared to fall in love with not only this story but I guarantee once you will finish you will immediately one click all of their other amazing books.
A wonderful start in Wishing Well!
A wonderful start to a new series by Melanie Shawn. Teasing Destiny is first in the Wishing Well, Texas series. I have a hard time reading books told in first person sometimes, but this one was really well done. Destiny may be 22-years old, but she knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. JJ is a few years older than her, but after playing professional baseball, he's ready to come home. A great story about second chances, with plenty of witty banter and sexy times thrown in. Looking forward to more in the Wishing Well series.
Great start to a new series
Was so excited to see this new series starting by Melanie Shawn, and Teasing Destiny gets it off to a fantastic start!
Destiny is the type of heroine who you would want as your best friend. Loves big, loyal, and will be there through thick and thin. JJ is yummy, but always putting his foot in his mouth when it comes to Destiny. I loved the bickering and bantering that went on between these two. It added so much to the sexual tension that was already between these two. It was awesome getting to meet the new characters of this series, and seeing how the chemistry is between each of them.
