Lexie has one goal in life: to grant one last wish for each of her patients. There isn’t a request she will deny, and has yet to fail to deliver a promise. That is, until the day she goes in search of the infamous rock star Kaleb Knight, who can’t care less about her life’s ambition, or the children she is determined to help. 

Kaleb has his own dark secrets. He lives each day as if it’s his last, and refuses to spare a moment of his time to play the part of a knight in shining armor—especially for someone like Lexie . . . or so he thought. Now, his head and heart are at war, and his soul is screaming she is exactly what he needs. 

Will Lexie be the only one that can save him in the end? Or will he instead succumb to the darkness threatening to consume him?


****4 Stars****

Lexie is left wondering why the cancer didn't take her, what could have been done differently, and how will she grant the kids wishes? She is a nurse in the children's oncology ward. She is sweet, caring, and feisty. Will she be able to grant this little boys wish and have his favorite rock band come visit the boy...or will she fail?
Kaleb is the lead singer of Dragon Knights. He is your typical rock star....doesn't want to be bothered with such a task. Things get worse before they get better.
I enjoyed reading this book. It makes you sad and very emotional with the subject of isn't an easy to deal with. I felt bad for the characters and the author for writing such a brave story. I wish there was a little more hot, dirty and downright sinful sex. I got a little bored I have to admit after a while as it didn't hold my attention as much. 
With all that said it was a very enjoyable read and I hope to get the chance to read the next in the series.




“Yeah, buddy?” 

He sucks in a deep breath before saying, “Do you think there are stars in heaven?” 

“Of course there are. There is anything your little heart desires.” 

“Even my hot fudge sundaes?” His question causes me to lightly laugh. Of course he asks about his favorite dessert that he has been craving for the past month. 

“Even your hot fudge sundaes,” I reply. “Before you know it, you’ll be having a stomach ache from eating too much sugar.” 

This causes his mother to whimper as she struggles against surrendering to the breaking point. She’s always fought to not break down in front of Braden. She doesn’t want him to see how upset this entire situation makes her. 

He brightens from the response, his eyes returning to the show above us. The entire time my view is locked on the little angel in front of me, knowing everything I’ve done tonight to make this possible is still not enough for him. He deserves more. He deserves a lifetime worth of years to gaze up at the stars, not borrowed hours as we wait, wondering when the end will come. 

Unfortunately, the wait wasn’t long. Braden took his last breath two days later. I was at his side, holding his mother’s hand when he gave his last smile before closing his eyes for the final time. He took a piece of my heart with him at that very moment, but they all have.
