Be careful what you wish for...
Normally, Aspen Edwards will do anything for her free-spirited best friend, Mischa, but this feels like a bit much. The plan is simple, all Aspen has to do is write down a few affirmations and recite them during the New Moon. But as skeptical as Aspen is, a promise is a promise. So, she whispers each wish to the universe, pondering the possibilities of "what if." Who wouldn't want a promotion at work, a new home, or to become an irresistible sex goddess?
But Aspen’s luck doesn't change with the wishes, or the wind. Each of her whispered prayers produces disaster. She gets fired. Her car breaks down. She gets kicked out of her house. And of course there is the crap icing on the cake of doom, falling for flirtatious and sexy, Wes, who sees her as nothing more than his “little sis”. It might not be so bad if his house weren't the only place she had to go.
Unbeknownst to her, the universe has a few tricks up its sleeve, and Aspen's bad luck streak might just be putting her right where she needs to be!
This book was such a fun read; I really connected with Aspen almost from the start. Within a short few days her safe, but boring life spirals out of control. She struggles to make sense of the tricks the universe seems to be playing on her and bemoans her string of exceptionally bad luck.
Aspen, however, is a plucky girl, and as she fights to regain some semblance of order, her best friend Mischa suggests something that seems outrageous at first. With its breezy style, fast pace, delightful dialogue and clever storyline this book literally had me howling with laughter not just once or twice but several times. It is a good thing I was reading this book at home so only my husband witnessed my spells of temporary lunacy!
This book was provided to me in exchange for my honest review.

“Oh hey, great job out there, I really liked some of your moves.”
I turn to her completely taking my mask off in the process and start shaking my ass. “Oh yeah? It’s because this is the hottest ass chicken you ever did see!” I laugh and happen to look to the side as I turn my head to really get into my shaking and happen to meet the eyes of the person sitting in the lobby.
Oh. My. God. “Wes?” My humiliation is complete.
There is laughter sparkling in his eyes and his smile is enormous. “I really enjoyed some of those moves as well. If only I had known it was you.”
There are no words. None. I thought I was speechless before, I was wrong. So, so wrong.

Ever since winning a writing contest at the young age of nine, when she wrote a book about a girl with a pet unicorn, she’s dreamed of writing a book of her own.

She also has an unhealthy addiction to handbags and chocolate covered strawberries, neither of which she cares to work on.
