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? 


“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.

My Review:

This is the first book I have read by Gabbie Duran but it definitely will not be the last.  This author has written a very heartbreaking and heartwarming story about a disease that touches the lives of a lot of people, Cancer.  Lexie, a pediatric oncology nurse, trys to grant a wish to each of the sick patients; while attempting to coordinate one of these wishes she has the unfortunate pleasure of meeting Kaleb, a rock star with a very bad attitude.  Although this story details the pain that both Lexie and Kaleb have experienced in their past losing loved ones to cancer and Lexie losing patients to this same horrible disease, Gabbie has also included some humor to keep the story from being too depressing and some steamy scenes between Lexie and Kaleb.  You’ll have to read this book to see if Kaleb’s secret comes between him and his pixie or if Lexie opens his eyes to what must be done.  I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series to see what Gabbie has planned for these two and the rest of the band.
