Release Day Review! WISHING UPON A STAR by Christina Berry (Silver Lining #3)

Wishing Upon a Star currently reading graphic

I’ve only ever loved one man, Hollywood heartthrob, Griffin Stone. Of course, I never told him.

In high school, Griffin was hot jock Mr. Popular, while I was the dorky science nerd who tutored him. Now, ten years later, I’m a leader in space technology and a newly-minted billionaire, and apparently I’ve stepped through a wormhole to an alternate dimension because Griffin freakin’ Stone just admitted he’s always had a crush on me. He thinks I rejected him.

Can time heal old wounds and bring our stars into alignment?

Wishing Upon a Star is a billionaire, Hollywood second chance novella, and book three in the Silver Lining series.

Tech nerd billionaire and Buffy fan Scarlet and TV heartthrob Griffin Stone are the latest couple to be “chosen” by the wishing wall at Silver Lining, and I am here for it!

Wishing Upon a Star is a (dual) unrequited love/second chance romance (of sorts–they don’t actually “take” their first chance, but it probably still counts? It wasn’t for lack of trying on Grif’s part, anyway), and these two definitely didn’t know that their hearts were in the running for getting a wish granted, because Scarlet’s friend contributed the dollar this time and neither one of them knew a thing about it. Which, honestly, was probably for the best, because they both had to do some major getting-their-heads-out-of-their-butts to begin with, so their work was already cut out for them

If you’re a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, then OMG will you enjoy this series installment! (The fact that the author dedicated the story “to Spike” should have been a clue, but I obviously wasn’t paying attention…) Even if you have no idea what “the musical episode” refers to, though, you’ll still enjoy this really cute story. I have to admit if it wasn’t dual POV Griffin would have had to work a lot harder to get this reader to like him, because he makes a really d*ckish comment early on. Fortunately, Scarlet appreciates a good grovel when she sees one 😉

3 stories down, 3 to go! I can’t wait to see who gets a magically-inspired HEA next <3
