36 hours is a short spell when racing the clock.
2,160 minutes is an eternity for old friends to fall in love…
August Cruz is the only man I’ve ever loved.
He’s the one who got away.
He’s the one I totally screwed over.
Now he’s standing on my doorstep, nine years later, but he’s not the only thing that turns up. My mother’s lost diary is in my hands, and it might lead me to my father. A possibility I wished for one year ago, at my last birthday.
I have 36 hours to fulfill that wish.
I have 36 hours to drag August on a wild scavenger hunt.
I have 36 hours to protect my heart before I lose him again...because there's something he's not telling me.
I was correct – The One Wild Wish series is currently available in Kindle Unlimited. Licks is an amazing conclusion to the year of the three friends working on their wishes. High school friends broke up badly and 9 years later, after Gwen’s mother’s death, August turns up again.
Gwen had always wanted to find her father. Her mother would never tell her who he was. In high school, August had helped her follow clues to find him So now in the 36 hours before her birthday, August joins her with the crazy clues to find him.
Gwen and August also find each other on this emotional journey. I was so afraid they would do stupid things and not get together in the end. Luckily, they both not only knew each other well but they had learned and grown. This incredible trail had me tense, thrilled, afraid, heart-pounding, and crying. Her friends, Rachel and Ainsley, were there for support and to celebrate their birthdays and their success with their wishes.
I would highly recommend this whole series in order. The feels are many. The sex sizzles. The growth and friends are uplifting. The love and learning is satisfying.
I listened at 1.25x speed which is normal for me. There were two narrators; the same as for Legs. The chapters in the story alternated between Gwen and August’s point of view. Samantha Cook performed Gwen’s chapters and Aaron Shedlock voiced August’s chapters. I liked Samantha Cook’s female voices but I didn’t like her male voices. I felt Aaron Shedlock handled it all well. The narration overall was enjoyable and brought the emotion of the story to me.
