Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway: Whispering Wishes by Jennifer Miller

Title: Whispering Wishes

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!

Wow! Can I just say that I LOVED this book!? It simply took my breath away the way the author described Aspen's and Wes' relationship. While there were a few things I didn't like towards the end of the book, the overall book was amazing. The main character, Aspen seems to have her life together; college graduate, has a steady job, rents the perfect house, and has a reliable vehicle. When her best friend, Mischa suggests making a list to the universe, Aspen takes her advice. Burning the evidence of her wishes she begins the long wait that promises to bring her good luck. 

Good luck does not come her way. As soon as the list is burned all hope is lost for Aspen. Her life begins to fall apart around her; she loses her job (after leaving with a classic "screw you" to just about everyone in the office!), her car breaks down, and worse of all she is being evicted from her house. Luck seems to be going in a downwards spiral for Aspen until she meets the handsome Wes who works at D'Vine, a local wine bar. 

Who would expect her luck to turn around when he over hears her discussing her job? Who would have expected the handsome devil to smirk, and flirt with her as she sits with Mischa venting about her day that she's suffered through? Wes comes into her life unexpectedly, and completely steals her heart (as well as mine!). Badass wannabe, anybody? Wes steals her heart away, makes her fall in love with him, and sort of saves the day when he offers the spare bedroom to her in his house. 

I could go on and on about their relationship, and an overall recap of the book, but I don't want to post any more spoilers. I did not like the fact that the end of the book, where Aspen and Wes' relationship really turns into something seemed completely rushed. If there is a chance of a second book coming out, I would read it in a heartbeat. I give Whispering Wishes by Jennifer Miller a strong 4/5 stars
