One simple wish would change everything…Unless you didn’t even wish for it
Harley Simpson had one wish – to find Prince Charming and settle down. However, she still had yet to find that one guy, so she buried herself in her work and decided to just have fun.
On her way out for a night with the girls, Harley meets a mysterious cab driver. The woman starts to question what she’d really like in life. Although Harley found it rather odd for a cab driver to ask such deep questions, Harley told her.
A wish gone bad…
Harley finds herself the next morning, married to her boss and two small girls running around the house. She’s at a loss for words, especially since she’d never even kissed the guy and now she has two kids. Is this the life that she truly wanted or has fate gone completely wrong? Can she get out of her suburban nightmare or will Harley learn how to become that mom she never thought she’d be – in this messed up fairy tale –

Careful What You Wish For is a sweet story about Harley Simpson, a woman who has been career driven and has little to show when it comes to relationships. She’s had a crush on her boss Ethan since she laid eyes on him and has been secretly pining for him. She becomes a fumbling mess when he’s around and can’t help, but daydream of him and their happily ever after. One day after landing a project at work she heads to a bar for a girls night out. On her way out to catch a cab she has run in with Ethan and is left a bit out of sorts. The cabbie seems interested in her life and what she wants. After a brief talk she admits some of her desires especially about her boss. The cabbie wishes her well and she spends a night out with the girls. After one too many drinks, Harley heads home, but when she awakens the next morning she’s not exactly in Kansas anymore.
She has somehow stepped into a new life with Ethan as her husband and two daughters she doesn’t remember having. Terrified and confused, Harley wants nothing more than her old life back, but is it that simple now that she’s got everything she’s ever wanted? And is everything she ever wanted truly the best thing for her? Careful What You Wish For, Harley, you just might get it…
To be honest I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I had never read any of the authors earlier works so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it is a quick and enjoyable read that you will likely finish in one setting. I actually emailed the author to tell her I put my life on hold to finish the book because I got so into it. It’s also a very funny read. I think most people still enjoy the magic of fairy tales so this, to me, is a charming adult read with a magical twist. It makes you think about all the things you’ve ever desired and how right they may have seemed in your mind until you actually get them. It’s kind of like the adage, “the grass is greener on the other side”…or is it really? Harley’s biggest obstacle will be realizing if this reality meant for her or one better left unexplored. The ending is perfect. I’d definitely recommend this book to romance readers. This is also a great beach read. Check it out and let me know your thoughts!

I am a stay at home mom to two wild and crazy kids. I started writing when my husband suggested instead of waiting around for books – create my own. He never realized (nor did I) that it would become more than a short story here and there. I have officially written 5 books and 2 novellas. When I’m not writing (which is rare) I love to be hiking and enjoying the outdoors.
