GJ captured my heart with these characters over a year ago when I read the first book in this series, Saving Wishes. I have waited anxiously for each new release and she never disappoints me.
I adore Alex, he is a true gent with a heart of gold. There is nothing he wouldn't do for the ones he loves. I was so happy to be back when I heard we were getting more Alex and Gabi.
During this novella Alex's faith in the magic he taught Charli over the years fails him when he needs it most.
Charli arrives back where it all started ready to meet her little brother but she gets more than
she bargained for, she has to hold Alex together. Like he has done for her many times over the years.
I have always felt loved the relationship between Charli and Alex. The reversal of roles to a degree make it all the more beautiful in this book. Alex really struggles in this book, he's no longer the down to earth Aussie surfer, he's an emotional mess.
This novella had me in tears numerous times, sad and happy tears. I love the magic GJ weaves into her books, she is one of those rare gem's of an author, that once you find her books you will never want to miss them.
