Guest Review: Wishing For Us by Sydney Landon

Sydney Landon—New York Times bestselling author of The One for Me—delivers a new novel of love lost and found in her popular Danvers series.

Since the loss of her fiancé, Lydia Cross has refused to allow herself to feel anything close to love. That is until corporate hotshot Jacob Hay comes to her aid outside of the Danvers International corporate headquarters and captures her attention. Too bad he doesn’t show any signs of reciprocating her feelings.

Things change when, after a rowdy Vegas bachelorette party, she wakes up next to Jacob...as his newly wedded wife! Lydia is stunned, but Jacob seems remarkably calm and isn’t inclined to end their hasty merger. In fact, day by day he gives her everything she’s been missing—especially in bed. But when the magic of Sin City fades, Lydia grows concerned she’ll find herself alone once again...



This was a tough read. It’s what I call an emotionally draining story, one of those books that will stick with you for quite some time.

Lydia knows loss. She lost her fiancée, and is trying to pick up the pieces of her life. But during a wild weekend in Vegas, she finds herself waking up next to Jacob, a stranger, and her brand new husband. What unfolds between Lydia and Jacob from that point on is, at times, hilarious, sweet, and exceptionally emotional.

Of all of the books in this series, this one has been my favorite. It stirred so many emotions. The amount of baggage that had to be sorted through for these two to finally reach their moment of happiness was more than most people would have the patience for. But Lydia and Jacob are both stubborn, determined people, and watching their romance grow was more enjoyable than I’d like to admit.

If the rumors are true, and this is the last book of the series, I can honestly say that it definitely went out with a serious bang.

Rating: 4.5 Stars

I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book gifted to the blog in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
