Wishing on a Dream

I thought that ‘Wishing on a Dream’ was going to be girl meets girl with a bit of conflict and angst thrown in.  It was much more than that.  Tobin Parks is a hugely popular megastar singer who wants her next tour sponsored by the energy drink ICE.  The CEO of the company, Kiersten Bradley, is not so sure she wants to be associated with Tobin who has quite a reputation.  When they meets sparks fly but although Kiersten is attracted to Tobin she holds back.  Why?  Tobin has been a player for years but finds this particular woman intriguing.  The strength of this book is not how they get to where we want them to go – after all this is a lesfic romance. The strength is the spot-on characterisation of the two main characters.  They are well-rounded, flawed and with backstories that fascinated me.  Their relationship grows slowly and with bumps along the way but it is never boring.  At times it is sweet, tender and emotional, at other times downright hot.  I love how Julie Cannon chose to tell it from each point of view in the first person.  It gave greater insight into the characters and drew me into the story more.  A really enjoyable read.

 

I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
