    A Wish For Us, 6 Stars

    " A symphony of hope. A symphony of love. A symphony of them. " I knew I would be in tears reading this book and yes I was in tears. Just like A Thousand Boy Kisses is A Wish for Us my favorite read by Tillie Cole and I can´t choose one winner, I can´t. Cromwell Dean is a 19 year old DJ, a rising star. He´s beyond talented - his calling is unique. But he has issues and demons. He´s new at a college in US and there he meets his soulmate. The one who makes him complete. Bonnie Farraday is twin to Easton. Both attend the same college as Cromwell and they run into each other. Bonnie has her own problems and secrets, but somehow Cromwell mesmerizes her and she can´t get him out of her head. ´til here it´s a nearly typical college story, But A Wish for Us wouldn´t be a Tillie Cole book when there wasn´t a major hurdle and big wrench that karma throws their way. I started reading and I was hooked from the start. I knew reading Cromwell and Bonnie´s story would hurt - and it did. The story gutted me to the core and put me in a roller coaster of emotions. Tille Cole is a outstanding and incredibly talented author and every time she releases a new book I´m giddy to get my hands on it and A Wish for Us is no exception. I can´t express how much I love the excellent writing, the unique story and how easily I connected with the characters. I highly recommend A Wish for Us and wish I could give more than 5 stars.

    Amazing & heart wrenching!

    I have read other Tillie Cole books and each one brings something that I have not read before. None of them are comfortable reads. They are dark and twisted with horror and pain. A WISH FOR US is not a typical Tillie Cole novel. It is a story of truths, hidden pain, rage, despair, understanding, and beauty in discovering redemption and moving on. This is something that has to be read to be experienced, and I don’t say that often. There were times that I really did not like Cromwell. He is arrogant and someone that I didn’t deem as likable. I really wanted to reach into the pages and bring him down several notches. But I kept reading and what I discovered about this amazing young man was a hidden soul of pain and despair. There is a deep rage within him and he coped with that in the only way that he could think of from his short existence. And then entered Bonnie into his life. Bonnie loves music. Her passion and dreams are wrapped around it, and it brings her pain and sadness to see Cromwell throw it away in the fashion that he is. But there are things that Bonnie doesn’t see about Cromwell, only what he shows. And when he starts to invite her into his life, a new world opens up for both of them. Bonnie is a beautiful character. Unfortunately, she sees the surface. But not the underneath. And when the underneath is exposed, an epiphany occurs and her world shifts again. I fell in love with both of these characters. They understand pain and sadness, even as they hide behind the façade that they both have created. They each bring a different prospective into the story and reading the culmination of it was hard, but beautiful. A good story is one that takes the reader along for the emotional roller coaster ride and doesn’t let them go … and that is what A WISH FOR US did to me. I felt the pain and sadness. The despair and the happiness that peppered the pages. I felt it all, and I woke up the next morning with eyes that were swollen from ugly crying, but heart that was happy with way the story ended. I think that readers will be pleasantly surprised by this story. I can say that I didn’t start out liking it, but my opinion started changing and I couldn’t put it down. I had to finish, I had to see what happened. I am so happy I continued! I would definitely recommend this story for readers that like angsty reads and aren’t afraid of a book that is going to bring them pain and make them ugly cry during certain parts. This was a very emotional read foe me, and I guarantee it is going to be the same for you!
