JUST FOR THIS MOMENT (Book 4)
A madcap, modern, marriage-of-convenience tale sure to leave fans begging for more
Maybe there hasn't been actual blood, other than a few paper cuts, but Myles has put plenty of sweat into his independent, local newspaper, and he's even willing to admit to a few manly tears. Certainly, the paper has been his mistress since he moved to the small town of Wishful, Mississippi, and he doesn't feel it's hyperbolic in the least to say it owns a piece of his soul. He's building his dream, independent of the life laid out for him by his family, and that means everything. There's nothing he wouldn't do to ensure its success.
Piper fell hard for Myles when they co-stared in the production of White Christmas that saved Wishful's historic Madrigal Theater. Not in love, she's careful to remind herself, but into very serious like, and certainly outrageous, chemistry-fueled attraction. But Piper knows that the bright lights of the stage can wreak havoc with perspective. She's been burnt by them before, when an on-stage passion fizzled into disappointment and heartache. That's why she put on the brakes with Myles, and she admits to herself that the fact that he played by her rules and waited only adds to his appeal.
When Myles tells her that a major investor is pulling out of the paper, leaving him with a huge loan to repay or lose his control over what he's built, Piper is devastated for him. But when he jokingly admits that the best option he's come up with is to marry a showgirl to gain access to a trust fund, well, that just sounds like a plan to Piper. After all, why not take this great guy on marriage test drive? He's worth having just for this moment, however long it lasts. But as their fake marriage turns alarmingly real, they'll have to decide if they're in it for the moment or forever.

Just For This Moment
I get some serious Pitch Perfect vibes out of this with the amazing list of musical references, the girl-power solidarity, and the underdog who gets his girl. I’ve come at this book from both ends of the series; I’ve read the books before this and I’ve read most of the books after this, so it was about time I filled in this missing chapter in my Wishful education. I can’t say I can understand where Piper and Myles are coming from, fighting to be seen as their uniquely black sheep selves. I’m more like Leah in the ‘fighting back comments to remain liked’ outlook. However, I loved watching this pair learn how to love one another. They made me laugh, the made me cry, they made me want to shake some sense into them, and they made me love.
Wish I Might
Like everything else in Wishful, it's sweet, funny, and a little crazy-making. The chemistry between Reed and Cecily is undeniable, you can feel it radiating from the page. Reed is such a sweetheart. It's a shame that his genuine niceness gets him into so much trouble. Cecily has so much trouble trusting her herself and her judgment about partners, I'm almost surprised that these two make it together. But I'm so glad they do. They're perfect for each other.
Turn My World Around
I have loved Tucker since the first time he strutted onto the page in Wishful. And after she was instrumental in healing the rift between Tyler and Brody, I knew there had to be more to Corinne than we had so far seen. There are parts of this book that don’t make for easy reading, in the same way that the nightly news isn’t always the easiest viewing. The people who are supposed to love us the most are also the ones with the greatest ability to hurt us. Sometimes they take advantage of that situation and we’re left to pick up the pieces in the aftermath. This is where we find Tucker and Corinne, healing from wounds inflicted by people who were supposed to love them. I thought this was a beautiful story of love, life, redemption, and recovery.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
