Welcome to my post for the Wish for You book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a $100 gift card and engraved dog tags. But, before we get to all that, allow me to introduce the book:

Wish for You (Boys of the South, #4)
Release date: January 19, 2014
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: Boys of the South #4

There's only one place in the world Lacey Evans feels normal--the roller derby track. When she laces up her skates and fastens her helmet, she'd powerful and in charge. She knows exactly what to do and say. The rules are clear and penalties are given for those who don't follow them. But in the real world, she's far from powerful and in charge. She never knows exactly what to do or say For years, she counted on one person to be exactly who he said he was--her best friend, Wyatt Tanaka. Only she changed the rules on him, without any warning, and now she's the one being punished.

Marine Veteran, Wyatt Tanaka, came home to a hero's welcome. Only he's hiding a secret that makes him anything but a hero and could potentially destroy his life. He's doing the best he can, trying to cope with the guilt, and the pain of the girl he loves pushing him away by doing all the things he'd sworn not to. With Lacey's new rules, he has nothing and no one to hold onto. Nothing to keep him from feeling dead. Instead, he allows nameless women, bars, drugs, and drinking consume him.

Then one night, he goes too far, gets in too deep, and when the truth comes out…will Lacey push him away or help save him?

My Rating: 3 Roses

A deep, emotional, lovely romance, Wish for You was a wonderful read. I liked this book. It was a great read.

Lacey was a good heroine. She was very loyal to those she cared about. Unfortunately, that often led her to do what she thought was best. It got rather frustrating, especially with how she kept hurting Wyatt and sending him some seriously mixed signals. Overall, though, I was find with her.

Wyatt was sweet. He had a lot of demons that he was struggling with, since he got back from war, and that led him into some dark places. But, he was obviously a good man at heart and I really liked him.

The romance was good. Lacey's back and forth kept it from proceeding for a while, but, since these two had known each other for so long, their feelings for each other were always there. And, the chemistry between them was hot.

The plot was good, and I was kept interested the entire way through. I enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was perfect.

Wish for You was a lovely New Adult romance. I really liked this book. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll want to check out.
