Reunion Prom? Is this really a thing?
In Wishful it is. Lexi Morales never imagined her life would turn into the premise for an 1980s teen movie. But when her big high school trauma hit like a ton of bricks, she spent the next decade trying to hide the truth. After years of careful avoidance, she's back in town to care for her injured mother, just in time for the high school reunion she never planned to attend—a reunion that evokes memories she's tried to forget.
Wishful's friendly neighborhood photographer, Zach Warren, has no idea why he and his best friend drifted apart. But from the first, flashbulb moment he sees Lexi all grown up, she's all he can think about—and his thoughts keep straying right out of the friendzone.
Zach’s offer of temporary employment while she’s in town should be a perfect fit, but acting like she's never thought of him as more than a friend turns out to be harder than Lexi ever expected. All she wants to do is get through this with her secret—and her heart—intact. One thing's for sure: Lexi is NOT going to this prom.
But what if ten years is just the right amount of time for Zach to finally get a clue?
Love Wishful...and Zach & Lexi
As a fan of friends-to-lovers romance, as well as the Wishful series by Kait Nolan, I was excited to read Lexi and Zach’s story. While Lexi has been living with hurt feelings since high school, Zach’s been missing his best friend and doesn’t understand why she backed away from him. I can totally understand Lexi’s heartbreak, but she needs to be brave and share those feelings with Zach. And while Zach is super excited to see Lexi again, he’s clueless as to the more than friends connection with Lexi.
Great characters, an easy read that I couldn’t put down and lots of romance are exactly what I receive every time I pick up a book by Kait Nolan. You can dive into the series at any point, because although they exist in the same world, each book is a stand-alone.
Proms and dances! Oh my!
I loved this one. So simply done and yet so much of emotion and nostalgia packed into it. And it’s heartening to read about Zach and Lexy. A must read for anyone that has faced heartache in high school. And most of us have!!
Light, inspiring love story. This author’s novels always uplift my mood.
