That is, until the day she goes in search of the infamous rock star Kaleb Knight, who can’t care less about her life’s ambition, or the children she is determined to help. 

Kaleb has his own dark secrets. He lives each day as if it’s his last, and refuses to spare a moment of his time to play the part of a knight in shining armor—especially for someone like Lexie . . . or so he thought. Now, his head and heart are at war, and his soul is screaming she is exactly what he needs. 

Will Lexie be the only one that can save him in the end? Or will he instead succumb to the darkness threatening to consume him?

What does a wish granter and a music star have in common? A broken soul!

Lexie who is a nurse in the children's ward has seen death first hand. Not just at work but at home as well. She lost her sister when she was younger. The one way to keep her sister's memory thriving is helping sick kids by granting one wish.

While trying to grant a wish she met Kaleb. He was such an a@@ when he first met Lexie. She was hurt by what he said and she knew this was 1 wish wasn't going to be able to grant. Little did she know Kaleb had a change of heart and granted that wish.

Kaleb he lost his mother when he was in his teens. Lexie and Kaleb share that, that loss of a loved one and they can see it in each others eyes. They just didn't know who they lost until they started talking and getting to know one another.

These 2 broken souls come together and have a whirlwind of a ride. Kaleb being an a@@ and Lexie sticking by his side. That is love, and dedication. With all the screw up's that Kaleb manages to get himself into. He sweet talk's Lexie right back out of them.

Their chemistry was electrifying. Their banter was funny, and smooth. 

You really need to pick this book up to see what kind of wishes Lexie grants. How Kaleb and Lexie's relationship goes on their bumpy ride. Is there a HEA?? You have to read it for yourself to find out.

I feel this book by Gabbie is outstanding!
There are so many feels, it's both heartwrenching and heartwarming!
Lexie is an oncology nurse, she looks after kids and the lengths she goes to to keep them happy, is truly amazing! 
I loved her, her annoyance when she first meets Kaleb is understandable! 
Kaleb is the lead singer of the band the Dragon Knights! Lexie went to meet him at a concert to convince him to meet a patient of hers! But things don't go to plan. What happens after this meeting is a real story, full of surprises! 
The way Lexie and Kaleb connect, the trials and tribulations as with any two people getting to know each other, well let me tell you not much at all, lol.This is a book you need to read for yourself!
Kaleb keeps a big secret from her and Lexie is extremely unhappy about it, not to mention the reaction from his band mates!
This is a book that will tug at your heartstrings! 
I loved how it ended, loved the whole book and cannot wait to see what the next book in this series brings!
Well done Gabbie on writing another sensational book!


“Yeah, buddy?” 

He sucks in a deep breath before saying, “Do you think there are stars in heaven?” 

“Of course there are. There is anything your little heart desires.” 

“Even my hot fudge sundaes?” His question causes me to lightly laugh. Of course he asks about his favorite dessert that he has been craving for the past month. 

“Even your hot fudge sundaes,” I reply. “Before you know it, you’ll be having a stomach ache from eating too much sugar.” 

This causes his mother to whimper as she struggles against surrendering to the breaking point. She’s always fought to not break down in front of Braden. She doesn’t want him to see how upset this entire situation makes her. 

He brightens from the response, his eyes returning to the show above us. The entire time my view is locked on the little angel in front of me, knowing everything I’ve done tonight to make this possible is still not enough for him. He deserves more. He deserves a lifetime worth of years to gaze up at the stars, not borrowed hours as we wait, wondering when the end will come. 

Unfortunately, the wait wasn’t long. Braden took his last breath two days later. I was at his side, holding his mother’s hand when he gave his last smile before closing his eyes for the final time. He took a piece of my heart with him at that very moment, but they all have.
