Careful What You Wish For: Not Your Average Fairytale

Careful What You Wish For: Not Your Average Fairytale - Michelle Escamilla Originally posted on Book-o-Craze, on a tour hosted by HEA Book Tours PR & More.

This book contained a quite unusual and original story I enjoyed immensely reading about!!

Harley has just landed some new clients for the firm she works for, being now one step closer to a promotion! On the way to the bar where they will enjoy their celebratory drinks, she and her best friend Olivia, she hops on a cab, where she confides to the female driver, who proved to be her Fairy Godmother, that she would very much want to get married and have kids with her boss Ethan Prince!

When she arrives at the bar, while having promised to herself that she will not have more than one drink, she eventually gets drunk and a little flirty with Matt, the bartender. On her way home, she falls asleep while still on the cab... and wakes up somewhere else entirely!!

How is Harley going to handle the sudden realization that her wish has been fulfilled and she is now Mrs. Prince and has two beautiful daughters Cassie and Leila?

While at first shocked and terribly confused by everything happening, she soon starts to enjoy her new life!
Until the moment Donna, her Godmother reveals that this is not the life she was supposed to lead and it was all a mistake! The only way for her to make things the way they are supposed to be is to realize what was meant to happen differently, and with those realizations the correct changes will be made!

A very sweet read that also passed a beautiful message, emphasizing the fact that wishes cannot be granted exactly the way we make them, because that way they might turn out badly. Instead, even if we think all of our wishes have been granted, we still need to check if some things could get better, and mostly in relation to the person one has married and the life they lead together! Especially, if only one person has changed their life around and adjusted to the marriage, contradicting their own personality.

This is exactly what happened to our heroine! Harley was an independent woman focused on her job and being perfectly happy about it! Waking up a few years later, she realizes that she has become a stay-at-home mom, who has completely changed her habits, her clothing style and generally her life, in order to make her husband happy!

But, is she happy?

All in all, 4,5 stars for a read that passed a beautiful and powerful message!
